Cereals visitors are getting the first look at John Deere’s revamped and expanded 6M series tractors, due for their global launch at the end of this month (25th June). Some of the highlights have already been shared by UK and Irish dealers who were on sales training last week at Langar. Once done at Cereals the new 6M185 show tractor will be making its way to the Royal Highland Show which starts on June 20th.

Much of the detail is still being kept under wraps, but the new range comprises 17 models from 95 to 275hp (max boosted outputs), aimed at extending the company’s reach in the mid-horsepower sector. All have the option of Deere’s AutoPowr CVT 50km/hr transmission a first for this series, but can also be specified with PowrQuad, AutoQuad and CommandQuad boxes.

On the controls side of things there is a simplified version of the CommandArm for the 6M tractors. Another addition is the reversible fan also used on higher horsepower ranges and the 6R, keeping dust and debris at bay.

Expected to find favour with customers of the popular 6530 and 7530 models, the 6M has offered the company the opportunity to add premium features to what has been considered a basic tractor. The cab features the slim cornerposts also used on larger ranges and combines, with telematics in base, while the G5 display is an option.

Availability is expected early 2025.
