Mechanical control valves

Overview

The tractor may be equipped with one type of mechanical control valves: premium (450 Series).

Premium-couplers control valves also have an additional lock function (position 3), which holds the control lever in the raise or lower position until the pressure in the oil circuit has reached a predetermined value (e.g., when the control cylinder has reached its end position).

In position 2, the control lever returns to neutral as soon as it is released and is the setting for normal hydraulic operation.

If an implement is connected, pressure connectionmust be connected to the lower coupler. With standard SCVs, a valve prevents sudden loss of pressure caused by leakage when the engine is shut off.

On premium SCVs, the likelihood of leakage is further diminished.

PowerTech™ PVS/PSS Stage 4 engine

Overview

John Deere 6R Series Tractors feature the reliable and proven PowerTech PVS 6.8L (415-cu in.) and PSS 4.5L and 6.8L (275-cu in. and 415-cu in.) engines. These air-to-air aspirated engines deliver a power bulge above rated power to provide excellent torque in demanding applications.

Key features:

  • Series turbochargers (PSS only)
  • Variable geometry turbocharger (VGT)
  • Air-to-air after cooling
  • High-pressure common rail (HPCR) fuel system
  • Engine control unit (ECU)

PowerTech PSS 6.8L (415-cu in.) enginePowerTech PSS 6.8L (415-cu in.) engine

Benefits

  • A constant power range of 2100 rpm down to 1500 rpm
  • Power bulge of 10 percent
  • Greater tractor productivity
  • Responsive power reducing the need to downshift the transmission

Details

To match the engine power characteristics and improve the operation economy of the machine, the rated engine speed is 2100 rpm.

Series turbochargers

Overview

The PowerTech PSS 4.5L and 6.8L (275-cu in. and 415-cu in.) engines utilize two turbochargers – a VGT and a fixed geometry turbocharger, providing the torque rise and engine response needed to meet varying load conditions.

Fresh air is first drawn into the low-pressure fixed geometry turbocharger and compressed to a higher pressure. The compressed, higher pressure air is then drawn into the high-pressure VGT, where the air is further compressed. By splitting the work between two turbochargers, both can operate at peak efficiency and at slower rotating speeds.

Engine control unit (ECU)

Overview

The ECU uses signal inputs from sensors and pre-programmed performance modeling to control critical engine functions such as fuel quantity, injection timing, air-to-fuel ratio, multiple fuel injections, amount of cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), and a host of other control parameters.

PowerTech PSS engine series turbochargersPowerTech PSS engine series turbochargers

Benefits

  • Deliver high power density
  • More low-speed torque and responsiveness to meet varying load conditions
PowerTech VGTPowerTech VGT

Benefits

  • Increased low rpm torque
  • Quicker response to load
  • Increased peak torque
  • Improved fluid economy
  • Improved performance at high altitudes
VGT

Overview

The VGT is electronically controlled and actuates the turbo vanes as required to maintain peak engine performance.

The turbocharger’s vanes are in the exhaust flow. The opening or closing of the vanes changes the outlet volume and airflow speed against the turbocharger turbine. When exhaust flow is low, the vanes are partially closed. This partial closure increases the pressure against the turbine blades to make the turbocharger spin faster and generate more boost pressure.

The ability to keep the airflow at optimum levels provides more consistent engine boost pressure and the ability to respond to load quickly across the entire engine rpm range. This system is without the turbo lag that can be found on some engines.

Air-to-air after cooling

Overview

Air-to-air after cooling lowers the intake manifold air temperature and provides more efficient cooling while reducing cylinder firing pressure and temperatures for greater engine reliability. Since lower temperature air is denser, a higher volume of air flows into cylinders so the engine is capable of meeting the increasing horsepower demands. Lowering the intake manifold and cylinder temperatures also aid in lowering the combustion temperature, which lowers the NOx produced as a result.

Benefits

  • Higher horsepower
  • Less NOx production
HPCR fuel injection system

Overview

Every PowerTech PSS 4.5L and 6.8L (275-cu in. and 415-cu in.) engine utilizes a HPCR fuel system to efficiently supply fuel to injectors. The high-pressure fuel pump instantly responds to requirements for more or less fuel flow or pressure. This electronically controlled, high-pressure pump delivers pressure on demand according to the application requirements. Pressure on demand ensures an efficient injection system resulting in high-injection pressure independent of engine speed.

High-pressure common railHigh-pressure common rail

Benefits

  • Instantly respond to load changes reducing the need to change gears
  • Improved fluid economy
ECUECU

Benefits

  • Optimized fluid economy
  • Maximum engine performance

Details

Each injector is controlled individually by the ECU. The ECU turns the injector on and off during each firing cycle to control the fuel delivery into each cylinder.

Load and speed sensing allow each cylinder’s fuel delivery rate to be adjusted independently at the individual injector. With each injection cycle, the ECU can make the following adjustments on the go:

  • Number of injections
  • Fuel pressure in the common rail
  • Start of injection
  • Duration of injection

This management system is connected to the transmission, allowing the engine and transmission to respond simultaneously.

Cold weather and high-altitude compensation are also precisely controlled for quality starts regardless of weather and maximum performance at high elevations. The ECU also features improved diagnostic capabilities. It is faster, has more working memory, and is responsible for monitoring and executing all aspects of the Integrated Emission Control System.

Benefits

  • A constant power range of 2100 rpm down to 1500 rpm
  • Power bulge of 10 percent
  • Greater tractor productivity
  • Responsive power reducing the need to downshift the transmission

Details

To match the engine power characteristics and improve the operation economy of the machine, the rated engine speed is 2100 rpm.

Series turbochargers

Overview

The PowerTech PSS 4.5L and 6.8L (275-cu in. and 415-cu in.) engines utilize two turbochargers – a VGT and a fixed geometry turbocharger, providing the torque rise and engine response needed to meet varying load conditions.

Fresh air is first drawn into the low-pressure fixed geometry turbocharger and compressed to a higher pressure. The compressed, higher pressure air is then drawn into the high-pressure VGT, where the air is further compressed. By splitting the work between two turbochargers, both can operate at peak efficiency and at slower rotating speeds.

Engine control unit (ECU)

Overview

The ECU uses signal inputs from sensors and pre-programmed performance modeling to control critical engine functions such as fuel quantity, injection timing, air-to-fuel ratio, multiple fuel injections, amount of cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), and a host of other control parameters.

PowerTech PSS engine series turbochargersPowerTech PSS engine series turbochargers

Benefits

  • Deliver high power density
  • More low-speed torque and responsiveness to meet varying load conditions
PowerTech VGTPowerTech VGT

Benefits

  • Increased low rpm torque
  • Quicker response to load
  • Increased peak torque
  • Improved fluid economy
  • Improved performance at high altitudes
VGT

Overview

The VGT is electronically controlled and actuates the turbo vanes as required to maintain peak engine performance.

The turbocharger’s vanes are in the exhaust flow. The opening or closing of the vanes changes the outlet volume and airflow speed against the turbocharger turbine. When exhaust flow is low, the vanes are partially closed. This partial closure increases the pressure against the turbine blades to make the turbocharger spin faster and generate more boost pressure.

The ability to keep the airflow at optimum levels provides more consistent engine boost pressure and the ability to respond to load quickly across the entire engine rpm range. This system is without the turbo lag that can be found on some engines.

Air-to-air after cooling

Overview

Air-to-air after cooling lowers the intake manifold air temperature and provides more efficient cooling while reducing cylinder firing pressure and temperatures for greater engine reliability. Since lower temperature air is denser, a higher volume of air flows into cylinders so the engine is capable of meeting the increasing horsepower demands. Lowering the intake manifold and cylinder temperatures also aid in lowering the combustion temperature, which lowers the NOx produced as a result.

Benefits

  • Higher horsepower
  • Less NOx production
HPCR fuel injection system

Overview

Every PowerTech PSS 4.5L and 6.8L (275-cu in. and 415-cu in.) engine utilizes a HPCR fuel system to efficiently supply fuel to injectors. The high-pressure fuel pump instantly responds to requirements for more or less fuel flow or pressure. This electronically controlled, high-pressure pump delivers pressure on demand according to the application requirements. Pressure on demand ensures an efficient injection system resulting in high-injection pressure independent of engine speed.

High-pressure common railHigh-pressure common rail

Benefits

  • Instantly respond to load changes reducing the need to change gears
  • Improved fluid economy
ECUECU

Benefits

  • Optimized fluid economy
  • Maximum engine performance

Details

Each injector is controlled individually by the ECU. The ECU turns the injector on and off during each firing cycle to control the fuel delivery into each cylinder.

Load and speed sensing allow each cylinder’s fuel delivery rate to be adjusted independently at the individual injector. With each injection cycle, the ECU can make the following adjustments on the go:

  • Number of injections
  • Fuel pressure in the common rail
  • Start of injection
  • Duration of injection

This management system is connected to the transmission, allowing the engine and transmission to respond simultaneously.

Cold weather and high-altitude compensation are also precisely controlled for quality starts regardless of weather and maximum performance at high elevations. The ECU also features improved diagnostic capabilities. It is faster, has more working memory, and is responsible for monitoring and executing all aspects of the Integrated Emission Control System.

Lighting options provide maximum visibility in every direction

Overview

Lights on the 6R Series Tractors have been positioned and designed to provide maximum visibility to the front, sides, and rear of the tractor to increase productivity in any operating condition. The cab lighting pattern provides 330 degrees of coverage while the hood lighting provides the remaining 30 degrees, for completely programmable, 360-degree, stadium-style lighting.
