For this month’s tractor test we revert to our ‘longtermer’ format, first featured in the 7/99 issue. This time it’s John Deere’s turn, with a 1,000-hour 84kW/115hp JD6610 joining the 99kW/135hp Case Maxxum MX135 on our fleet. How does the 6610’s owner assess the tractor’s performance to date, and has it lived up to initial expectations? More important, given the past 12 months’ experience, would he make the same buying choice again?
