New flagship model in all-rounder series

Since their launch, John Deere's 6M series tractors have earned a reputation as great all-rounders.

The tractors are able to handle a range of tasks from grassland to cultivation or frontloader duties.

The choice for 2016 will get a little broader with the upcoming introduction of the new flagship 6195M.

Equipped with the latest spec PowerTech PSS engine to Tier 4 final emission regulations, they have a 6-cylinder, 6.8L block pushing out 195hp at 2100rpm, climbing to a maximum output of 205hp when it hits a tough spot.

With a wheelbase of 2800mm and a full frame chassis, stability in the paddock and on the road are assured, and the latter is designed to take a range of transmissions including the Command Plus quad option.

Further options might include mechanical cab suspension and triple link system (TLS) on the front end, enhancing the ride for the operator; the latter can be seen to improve performance in the paddock also.

At the rear a beefy three point linkage picks up 8500kg, and hydraulic flow is via a pressure flow compensated pump system which can deliver 114L on demand to power the likes of frontloaders or external services.

As part of the JD Integrated Farm Sight Solutions package, a range including AutoTrac assisted steering and ISOBUS single screen integration releases the operator from repetitive tasks and makes the most of the tractors' capability.
