6115D Utility Tractor

You can opt for the 9F/3R Top Shaft Synchronized transmission with a dry clutch on the 6115D Tractor. It's an economical option that's ideal for applications that don't require a lot of repeated forward/reverse shifting — mowing and baling, for example.

Overview HOFFMANNS 6115D Namibia

Key Features

Transmission, 9F/3R, top shaft synchronized (TSS)
  • Gear lever HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Two levers, one for speed and one for range, provide operator good control.

  1. Range lever (left-hand side) selects 3 ranges (A, B, C). 

  2. Gear selection (right-hand side) selects speeds - 1, 2, 3, or reverse.

Forward and reverse speeds

 

All speed gears are fully synchronized for shifting-on-the go capabilities. Gears are synchronized for low shifting effort under load.  Forward to reverse shifting is also synchronized; however, it is recommended to slow down the tractor speed in order to minimize premature wear of components.

Ranges are not synchronized; tractor must be stopped to select the range.

 

12-in. cerametallic dry clutch
 
A 12-in. disk consisting of eight double-sided cerametallic pads efficiently transmits engine power to the transmission to drive the wheels for the drawbar pulling required without compromising component life.
 
The clutch incorporates a separate disk for the PTO, which is independently actuated by the action of a mechanical lever. The separate disk permits the tractor to stop without compromising the PTO operation.

NOTE: 9F/3R TSS is available on all 6D Tractors except for the 6140D.

6D Series Tractors name and numbering
  • 6D Series Tractor HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

    6D Series Tractor

  • Decal HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

    Decal

The tractor model numbers are comprised of four positions. The first number designates the family while the next three numbers represent the approximate engine horsepower. The fifth and sixth positions are represented by a letter.  The first letter indicates the level of capability or price a tractor has. Not every tractor will have a second letter. But if it does, the second letter represents a special configuration of the tractor.
 
The size of the tractor is how large the tractor is compared to other tractors John Deere offers, using the similar sizes of today's product groupings and still sustaining the tradition of the name and numbering legacy. A lot of people refer to these tractors as a "Six" Series Tractor. This name and numbering system will not change that. The 6D is similar in size to the 6003 Series.

 

The second position is the tractor's approximate engine horsepower. 6110D at 99 engine horsepower, 6115D at 118 horsepower, and 6140D at 138 engine horsepower have been rounded to the nearest 5 horsepower.  John Deere has promoted PTO horsepower for its utility and row-crop tractors and engine horsepower for its 4WD tractors. This has lead to some confusion in the marketplace. Although promoting PTO horsepower has its benefits, using bare-engine horsepower allows for a more consistent means of promoting tractor horsepower in a global market. Bare-engine horsepower is measured by running just the bare block engine with the front fan. With "bare" engine horsepower, John Deere is using the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 97/68 E-C standard for determining the bare-engine horsepower at rated engine speed, given in metric horsepower, not SAE. This unit of measurement is used globally to describe off-road engines. This will allow John Deere to consistently promote the tractor's approximate horsepower within the model number across all tractors around the world.

 

The third position is the tractor's capability or price level within its family. In general terms, "capability" is the specification level of that tractor series, such as the type of engine, transmission, frame, and overall design; all leading to price. The letter D would equal a very basic tractor, M would signify a premium tractor, while the letter R would equal a very premium tractor with many options and features. The higher the letter is in the alphabet the higher the tractor's spec level. If the tractor has a second letter, the second letter represents the configuration of the tractor. For example H will designate high-crop and V will designate a vineyard design.

 

Another important part of the name and number system is the way that you pronounce these tractor models. Using the former system we would have said "sixty-one-forty-D," but since the second, third, and fourth positions are the engine horsepower and not part of the tractor's size, the numbers need to be separated.

 

The correct way to say this tractor lineup is

  • 6100D:  "Six-One-Hundred-D"

  • 6115D:  "Six-One-Fifteen-D"

  • 6130D:  "Six-One-Thirty-D"

  • 6140D:  "Six-One-Forty-D"

 

This is a significant change to what we've all been use to for years, but the value and the solutions of these tractors remain the same.

  • Cab interior HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

    Cab interior

A ROPS-certified, factory-installed cab is available to all operators. The cab provides protection from heat and cold, wind, noise, and offers a climate-controlled environment. The cabs are also assembled to the tractor chassis as a complete unit mounted on composite isolators.

 

Fully-isolated cab advantages
By including the floor and steering column as part of the cab, it significantly reduces noise levels in the cab. It also creates a more sealed environment by reducing airborne particles entering the cab, such as dust, pollen, and other contaminants. 6D Series Cab Tractors are base equipped with a mechanical cloth seat for standard comfort. For those who will be operating on rough or unstable terrain, an optional air suspension seat gives maximum comfort with more suspension.
The cab is incredibly roomy, and the flat floor creates a spacious feel. The operator of a 6D Series Cab Tractor will appreciate the reduction in noise and vibration through the seat, steering wheel, and lever controls. By adding the cab to the tractor, the noise level is decreased by 17 percent.
The ceiling control panel is located to the upper right side and the air conditioning components are located on the upper rear corners of the cab, where visibility is not as critical. This provides the operator with visibility to the loader at height unmatched by any competitor. For excellent rear visibility, the fuel tank is located below the left-hand side of the platform.

Hydraulics, open-center, gear-driven, 2830 psi

All 6D Series Tractors feature a gear-driven, open-center (constant-flow) hydraulic system with a maximum pressure of 2830 psi (19,500 kPa).

  • 6D Series open-center hydraulics HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

The tractor incorporates a dual hydraulic pump design. The hydraulic and steering-transmission lubrication systems are functionally separate; however, both systems utilize a common reservoir resulting in ease of serviceability. Two selective control valves (SCV) are in base with a third deluxe valve as optional equipment.

 

Pressure available when needed

Pressure for the entire system is established by function requiring the highest pressure. As demand lessens, so does pump pressure and engine power requirement. Steering section (additional 6 gpm in base equipment) provides full power when needed for steering.

 

All functions return to sump, giving improved system performance and cooling.  By returning functions to sump, the system is simplified and provides faster service and increased uptime.

Ballasting and optimizing performance

Ballast, using implement codes

John Deere engineers have developed a code to determine how much front ballast is needed for stability and steering control.

  1. Find the implement code in the implement operator's manual.
  2. Use the following charts to determine how many front weights are required on the tractor model and configuration.

For example, an implement with a code of 194 to be used on a four-cylinder two-wheel-drive tractor requires 10 front weights.

 

IMPORTANT: With maximum front ballast, do not attempt to transport an implement with a code exceeding:

  • 217 for a two-wheel-drive, four-cylinder tractor
  • 225 for a mechanical front-wheel drive (MFWD), four-cylinder tractor

The following charts show the implement codes with the various combinations of tractors and tires sizes.

Use 6D Series ballast guide to plan for maximum productivity
  • 6115D with proper ballast HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Proper ballasting is an important factor in optimizing tractor performance. Ballasting allows for better traction and more stability. Maximum productivity can be achieved only if the tractor weight is appropriate for the application in which it is being used.
 
Different jobs require different amounts of ballast. It is important to match the amount of ballast needed for each individual task. What is right for one job may be wrong for another job.

Factors determining the amount of ballast:

  • Soil surface - Loose or firm

  • Type of implement - Integral, semi-integral, or towed

  • Travel speed - Slow or fast

  • Tractor power output - Partial or full load

  • Tire size

  • Type of front axle- two-wheel drive or mechanical front-wheel drive (MFWD)

Use no more ballast than is necessary, and remove ballast when it is no longer needed. Too little or too much ballast can adversely affect tractor performance:

Too little ballast

Too much ballast

Excessive wheel slip

Increased load

2-

2-

Power loss due to carrying extra weight

3-

3-

Tire strain

4-

Fuel waste

4-

Soil compaction

5-

Lower productivity

5-

6-

Lower productivity


What is correct ballast?
 
Ballast should be adjusted as tractor use changes. The best way to check for correct ballast is to measure the amount of travel reduction (percent slip) of the drive wheels. Under normal field conditions, travel reduction should be 10 percent to 15 percent, or 8 percent to 12 percent for MFWD tractors.

 

NOTE: To reduce wheel slip to this level, more weight is needed on the front than with two-wheel-drive tractors. The ideal weight split is 40 percent front, 60 percent rear of the total tractor weight. 

 

Add more weight to drive wheels if slip is excessive. If there is less than minimum percent slip, ballast should be removed unless needed for stability. Correct ballast allows for the most optimal use of tractor's available power and does not make up for an implement or load that is too big for the tractor. Adding ballast does not improve performance if the engine speed falls below rated speed and/or wheel slip is not beyond the recommended range. (Correctly calculate wheel slip.)

 

Pulling a lighter load at a higher speed is more economical and more efficient than pulling a heavier load at a lower speed. It is more economical to pull a lighter load at higher speeds. Too little ballast or too much ballast can cause excessive wheel spin, soil compaction, power loss, increased tire wear, and increased fuel consumption, thus lowering productivity. Too much ballast can cause excessive soil compaction and rolling resistance, as well as shorten the drivetrain life.
 
Ballast should be limited by either the tire's capacity or the tractor's capacity. Ballast should never exceed the weight required to provide traction for continuous full power loads in third gear. Each tire has a recommended carrying capacity that should not be exceeded. If a greater amount of weight is needed for traction, a larger tire should be considered.

 

What is the recommended weight spilt?

 

A tractor should be weighed to accurately determine the amount and type of ballast needed. Weight should be distributed depending on how the tractor is equipped and the conditions in which it will be operated.

 

NOTE: The ideal weight split with MFWD is 35 percent front, 65 percent rear of the total tractor weight.

 

Ballast the tractor with cast weights to arrive at recommended total tractor weight and correct weight split.

  • Total tractor weight should be 120 lb per PTO hp to 145 lb per PTO hp, with 130 lb being the most common.
  • Weight split recommendations front to rear.

NOTE: Front weight requirements are determined by the weight of the hitch-mounted implement. Enough front weight needs to be added to maintain steering control of the tractor. If equipment with AutoTrac™ system, 40 percent front and 60 percent rear weight split.

 

What type of ballast?

 

Ballast carried on the 3-point hitch is preferred for leader work. This form of ballast transfers a portion of the weight from the front axle to the rear axle, therefore requiring less overall ballast than would be required if place on the rear axle. Rear hitch ballast is also more convenient to remove when it is not needed.

 

Cast-iron wheel weights are the preferred form of ballast when use of the rear hitch of drawbar is required. Rear cast weights apply weight directly to the rear axle and can be installed at the factory.

6D Series, 6110D-6140 D cab and open station require APY10029 weights. No other weights are compatible.

  • APY10029, 484 lb consisting of four L28228

Liquid ballast should be avoided in rear tires since it has a stiffening effect that causes the tractor to ride rough and generally reduces ability to control power hop. If liquid is used in the rear tires, all tires on the axle must be filled to the same level, which should not exceed 40 percent fill.

Rear-wheel ballast should never be such that the engine cannot support full load at the rated engine speed while the tractor is moving at 7 km/h (4.3 mph). If the engine labors or stalls below 7 km/h (4.3 mph), this indicates there is too much ballast on the rear wheels. The following chart shows the carrying capacity per tire.

  2. Allows sway (sway chains will loosen), allowing side-to-side movement when the implement is lowered and ground engaged to allow for implement sway for such 3-point implements as a row crop cultivator.

Draft control knob HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Draft control knob

The 6D Series Tractor rockshaft is equipped with variable draft control system.  Draft sense is mechanically-controlled and is base equipment.  The draft sense utilizes right-hand draft link to instantaneously sensor the load information coming from the implement and delivers it to the hitch control mechanism for fast, smooth, and accurate hitch corrections. The operator selects the rear hitch load setting by adjusting the draft sense control knob, and depending on field conditions, it can be changed on-the-go.

  • Rate-of-drop knob HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

    Rate-of-drop knob

Conveniently-located hitch control console makes it easy to operate the hitch. The hitch works as follows (see illustrations above for referencing):

  1. The position control lever is used to raise/lower the hitch.
  2. The stop knob for the position control lever is used to preset depth.
  3. The rockshaft draft control knob allows the operator to set the required work depth on implements mounted to the 3-point hitch to either follow the ground contour or automatically raise the hitch to get through tough spots in the field.
  4. The variable draft control system includes draft sensing springs (as shown in the photo above) which react as soil conditions change and 3-point hitch load varies. Draft sensing is with the lower draft links that provide the input to the draft sensing control shaft. Use draft load sensing when one of the following conditions apply:

    a) Operating with a fully-mounted implement in uneven terrain. The implement will raise and lower to follow the ground contours while maintaining a nearly constant depth.
    b) Operating in varying soil conditions. The implement is raised slightly to get through tough spots so the operator does not have to shift to a lower gear.

  5. The rate-of-drop valve knob permits adjusting the drop speed of the implement hooked to the hitch or locking the rockshaft in position for transportation. Rate-of-drop control is easily accessible from the operator seat. Adjustment is performed by turning the hand knob:

    a) Clockwise for slow rate of drop.
    b) Counterclockwise for a fast rate of drop. Adjust rate of drop so that it is slow enough to be safe and prevent implement damage. Examples of 3-point hitch applications requiring rate-of-drop adjustments could be: row-cultivators, rear blades, box blade, roto-tiller, and snowblower.

Engine

Engine, external components and performance

Owners of utility tractors face rising input costs from almost every segment of their business.  They have high expectations for fuel economy and operational performance. John Deere research and development has addressed these requirements while addressing emission regulations.
 
With the 2-valve PowerTech E engines, you can expect superior performance in any application.
 
These engines are designed to deliver superior performance and are backed by rigorous testing and evaluation in laboratory and in-field testing.
 
This section will describe key performance and economic components visible from the outside of the engine.

Electronic engine management

Full-authority engine management is a John Deere-exclusive on selected 6D Series Tractors.
 
The permanent availability of precise parameter data enables:

  • Precise fuel metering

  • Speed and load dependent timing

  • Fuel temperature compensation

  • Automatic engine protection 

The result:

  • Extra power capability

  • Torque responsiveness

  • Low fuel consumption

Cold weather starting is also a benefit with electronic engine management.  Electronic engines will include a slow idle warm-up routine to increase slow idle for a period of two minutes during cold start conditions.  Engine slow idle will be 1000 rpm for fuel temperatures below 32°F, and normal 900 rpm for fuel temperatures above 87°F.

  • All 6D Series Tractor models utilize a turbocharged engine

  • 4-cylinder engines have a high exhaust gas velocity in their short exhaust manifold system and achieve the best performance with a fixed geometry turbocharger

  • Perfectly matched to engine to provide fast response

  • Converts exhaust heat into mechanical energy

  • Forces clean air into the combustion chamber for a faster response time

  • PowerTech E engine  HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

    PowerTech E engine

  • High-pressure common rail fuel system HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

    High-pressure common rail fuel system

Every 4.5 L PowerTech E (2-valve) engine uses a high-pressure common rail to supply fuel pressure to the injectors. The gear-driven high-pressure fuel pump instantly responds to requirements for more or less fuel flow or pressure.
 
The common rail contains extremely high-pressure fuel and is the channel flowing fuel to each injector. Pressure is generated by the gear-driven piston pump.
 
Each injector is individually controlled by the engine control unit (ECU). The ECU turns the injector on and off several times per firing cycle to control the fuel delivery into each cylinder. The ECU can sense engine rpm and load changes 100 times per second and respond instantly. Load and speed sensing allows each cylinder fuel delivery rate to be adjusted independently at the individual injector.
 
With each injection cycle the ECU can make the following adjustments:

  • Number of injections

  • Fuel pressure within the common rail

  • Start of injection

  • Duration of injection 

Cold-weather and high-altitude compensation are also precisely controlled for good starts regardless of weather and proper power levels at high elevations.

 

Benefits:

  • Extra power for increased field output

  • Wide-constant power band providing increased engine performance at low rpm (saving fuel)

  • Constant high torque allowing a pull capacity never experienced before achieving higher performance

  • Performance matched economical fuel consumption requiring less fuel per hour of operation due to the intelligent high-pressure common rail fuel injection system

 

The injection system also provides a way to have the engine run with a decreased noise level through a process called pilot injection. With the precise fuel injection capabilities, there can be a small amount of fuel injected early in the injection process. This process helps to lessen the combustion knock commonly heard from diesel engines. While the combustion noise reduction is most obvious, pilot injection continues to function at any engine speed. Integration of this state of-the-art injection technology into the John Deere 4.5L engines provides the necessary means to achieve improvements in operating performance, fuel economy, and exhaust emissions at lower rpm.

Cooling system HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Cooling system

The closed cooling system provides excellent reliability and serviceability through this automotive-designed system. The system is maintenance free and maintains the correct coolant level for optimum cooling efficiency. Inspection is easy and tools free.

Air-to-air intercooler HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Air-to-air intercooler

The charge air cooler is an integral part of the emission controls. The system is designed to cool the compressed air from the turbocharger (266°F/130°C) and provide a constant and efficient low-intake air temperature of 140°F (60°C).
 
This significantly improves the air flow to the cylinder head and increases the oxygen content of the air, which helps improve the mixing of the fuel and air so that combustion is clean (fewer emissions) and more efficient (less fuel). The charge air cooler is a closed system and is maintenance-free.

  • 6D Series tilt hood (right side view) HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

    6D Series tilt hood (right side view)

  • Engine oil filter HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

    Engine oil filter

The integral full-flow oil cooler is a highly efficient plate-type heat exchanger.
 
The cooler is integrated into the coolant cavity of the engine block providing two significant advantages.

  • High cooling efficiency as a result of full coolant flow from the water pump directed through the element.

  • Reliable cooling as no external lines are used.

 

The full-flow oil filter screens out dirt and contaminants to prevent system damage. The vertically-mounted full-flow oil filter is fitted with large pipes to reduce flow restrictions for increased reliability and engine lubrication. If the filter becomes plugged, oil is bypassed around filter to ensure lubrication to vital engine parts.
 
The filter is vertically mounted for no-mess replacement, keeping the tractor components clean. This prevents dirt and debris from building up around components, which could contaminate the system the next time the filter is replaced.

Oil dipstick HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Oil dipstick

The 6D Series Tractors have been redesigned with a tilt hood and an easy-to-access engine compartment to reduce downtime and increase uptime in the field to achieve higher productivity. Engine oil check and fill locations are located on the left side of the tractor.

The ease and convenience mean service items are less likely to be forgotten or postponed. The result is a more reliable tractor that will not let you down when you need it the most.

As a higher air flow rate is required by the engine, the power core air filter helps ensure a clean performance-orientated combustion.
 
Power core air filter discharging systems provide:

  • Twenty percent higher air flow capacity

  • Spiral tubes and an aspirator tube, which vacuums 93 percent of the dust and moisture before entering the primary air filter - thus continuously precleaning of the air all year round

  • Thirty percent smaller than standard air filters with the same filtering capacity

  • Easier service and cleaning of the filter element

  • Minimized restriction of the air stream to the radiator

  • Filter fills from the back

  • Compact, highly-efficient system, delivers an unrestricted flow of clean air to the turbo

  • No tools required for servicing

Poly-v serpentine belt extends service life HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Poly-v serpentine belt extends service life

The poly-v serpentine belt increases power transfer to auxiliary components such as alternator. The belt is designed like a "V" to extend service life. The design also provides manual belt tensioning for greater service life, and it is easy to reduce tension for replacement.

Fuel filters HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Fuel filters

John Deere PowerTech and PowerTech E engines are designed to operate on diesel fuel blends and bio-diesel up to a rating of B20.

 

A dual-stage fuel filter is mounted on the left side of the engine to screen out foreign material and prevent injectors from plugging while permitting easy visual inspections. The first filter is a 50-micron primary filter element, while a five-micron secondary filter screens out remaining foreign material. The filter is easy to replace, and no tools are required.

 

The water separator improves fuel quality, increases engine durability performance, and reduces service intervals.  An operator can open an easy-to-drain valve to remove water from the system.

 

Filters should be checked daily or every 10 hours of operation and replace when required.  If biodiesel is introduced after the engine has operated on 100 percent diesel for a period of time, additional segment may occur, as the bio-diesel will act like a solvent, cleaning out the fuel system.

Rated engine horsepower ratings are included for reference to competitor's gross or engine-only power ratings. There are several ratings systems used by other manufacturers. John Deere uses the horsepower-rating standard 97/68/EC, which is widely used in Europe for various regulations.

 

How is engine-only rated and maximum power determined?

John Deere engineering uses a precise procedure to measure engine-only power levels. The 97/68/EC standard is required in the European Union (EU) as an emission test, so there is some relation to the power a tractor has as a whole functioning unit; however, the procedure requires only that a production engine and radiator are used on a dynamometer test.
You can use the 97/68/EC horsepower ratings in the above chart to compare to competitor claims of engine-only power.

PTO power and power bulge

The John Deere exclusive single-injector control, electronic fuel injection system, and other key engine parts, work together to sense engine load and instantly respond as needed to pull through tough spots. This reduces engine rpm fluctuation resulting in the reduced need to downshift the transmission. Fewer shifts result in fewer ground variations, providing more overall tractor productivity.
To match the engine power characteristics and improve economy of operation, the rated engine speed is 2100 rpm.

Engine horsepower standards

When comparing tractor performance information, it is important to understand the engine standards and measurements used by manufacturers when collecting the data.

ECE R24, 97/68/EC, ISO 14396, and ECE R120 refer to engine flywheel horsepower.  The ECE R24 measurement is lower because the power required to operate the cooling fan is included.

  • 97/68/EC HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

The 97/68/EC standard is defined as follows:

  • Gross engine performance at the flywheel (1)
  • All engine auxiliaries attached (except air conditioning/air brake compressor, transmission/hydraulic oil cooler)
  • Fan removed
  • Radiator removed
  • 25°C (77°F) ambient temperature when testing

NOTE: 97/68/EC corresponds approximately to ISO 14396 and ECE R120 standard.

  • ECE R24 HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

The ECE R24 standard represents net flywheel power (2) and is calculated from 97/68/EC performance figures taken into account:

  • All engine auxiliaries attached including transmission/hydraulic oil cooler (except air conditioning/air brake compressor)
  • Performance input of the fan is added, under the assumption that the engine is assembled in the tractor operating under realistic conditions.
  • 25°C (77°F)  ambient temperature when testing

Attachments, engine manifold and engine block heater

The engine manifold heater heats up the engine air intake to assist with cold-weather starting. To engage, turn the ignition key to the left and hold for 20 seconds.

The engine block heater heats up the engine coolant surrounding the engine block. The engine block heater, 110 volts, needs to be plugged into an electrical circuit to be activated. The coolant is pre-warmed prior to the tractor starting, and this fluid warms the engine block to assist in cold weather starting.

Advantages of wet-disk brakes

Mechanically-actuated wet-disk brakes are base equipment providing many advantages to the operator.
 
Eight friction disks operate on the rear axle to provide smooth braking. These asbestos-free brakes are splashed with cooled and filtered oil to provide heat dissipation and long life even under high use. Spring-action retractor system moves brake actuator plates away from the disk to eliminate brake drag, reducing power losses and saving fuel.

 

Brake pedal location

 

Suspended brake pedals provide comfortable operation with increased foot room on the platform.  Brake pedals can be joined by an easy-to-use locking tab for braking action on both rear wheels when in transport, or they can be unlocked to make tighter turns in the field.  A parking brake lever is also conveniently located next to the brake pedals for locking the brakes.

The MFWD front axle provides an exclusive 12-degree Caster/Action to deliver tight turns for headland turning or use within livestock building areas.

 

The Caster/Action design permits wheels to tilt and tuck under the tractor chassis to achieve sharp turns. It improves stability and steering accuracy, provides positive turn traction, and allows a maximum 52-degree turn angle.

 

Multi-position front wheels provide a wide range of tread settings that can get as narrow as 59.7 in. (1516 mm) or extend out to 79.4 in. (2016 mm).

  • MFWD fenders HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Large, 15.7-in. (400-mm), full-coverage, flexible fenders are available for MFWD axles. These fenders protect the operator station from mud and debris. The fenders feature a full range of adjustments to accommodate a variety of tread settings and tire sizes.

NOTE: These fenders are not compatible with front loaders.

Frame, structural design for efficient drawbar work
  • 6100D 2WD Tractor HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

The 6D Series Tractors are built on a structural-component chassis. This frame design provides a precise weight-to-horsepower ratio for efficient drawbar work. All 6D Series models weigh the same but have different horsepower ratings. The 6D tractor lineup provides more horsepower-varying models to better accommodate the diversified power-density requirements.

 

Higher-power-density models lower in horsepower for their weight are better suited for heavy pull-type tillage applications. Lower-power-density applications require more work for power take-off (PTO) applications. 

 

The engine oil pan and transaxle provide high load-carrying capacity for larger implements and are compatible with the John Deere 563 and 673 Loaders. The tractor is built to handle a variety of implements including tillage, hay equipment, rotary mowers, loaders, and seeding equipment.

Optimizing tire performance

Knowing more about how to optimize your tires' performance can help increase efficiency and productivity and reduce downtime. Optimizing tire performance will also maximize the performance of your equipment.

  • 6D Series MFWD Tractor HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Optimum tire performance includes all of the following: excellent traction and mobility, reduced tire slip, greater efficiency, reduced soil compaction, and a more comfortable ride. Proper machine weights and tire inflation pressures are of utmost importance in optimizing benefits and performance characteristics of your tractors' tires.

Better traction

 

Power is wasted with poor tire traction. Power is delivered to the ground by the tires. Slipping results in higher fuel costs and longer hours in the field. There are a few ways to help maximize tire traction, which optimizes the performance of your tractor.

  1. Look at the footprint when selecting your tires. It is the most accurate measure of traction efficiency. A larger footprint provides more ground contact, resulting in more traction.

  2. Make sure that your tires are properly inflated. The efficiency of the power transfer through the tires depends on your tires and the proper inflation pressure. Over-inflation can cause a reduction in traction. As well as other tire performance issues.

  3. Replace your tires when lugs have become worn. Keep in mind that all tires should be replaced then wear starts to impact performance.

  • 6D Series MFWD Tractor HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

According to Michelin® Tire Ag Solutions product guide, about 80 percent of soil compaction occurs during a machine's first pass over the soil. When a tire with low ground pressure is used on the first pass, additional passes with the tires having higher ground pressure cause minimal additional compaction. Reducing soil compaction can have a positive effect on plant growth. Soil composition and moisture content are important factors affecting compaction. Wet or clay soil conditions are more susceptible to compaction.

 

You cannot eliminate compaction, but you can minimize it by using best management practices with your tires.

  • Using proper weight distribution of the equipment to transmit wheel torque efficiency.

  • Add weight and optimize your ballast to reduce slippage.

  • Avoid using liquid in tires when possible.

  • Use manufacturer's recommendations on tire pressure.

Maximize tire life

 

There are some tips to help you maximize the life of your tractor's tires. Select the tire that offers the lowest possible inflation pressure for carrying the specific load that you are wanting. Proper ballasting will also extend the life of your tires.

 

See ballasting

 

Follow the field speed recommendations in your operator's manual for the application and implement that you are using your tractor for. Following tire pressure recommendations will also allow you to reduce wear and increase the life of your tires, which will decrease downtime.

 

When is it time to change your tires?

  1. Sightings of severe punctures, cuts, or other abrasions on the tire are good indicators that tires should be changed and should no longer be used.

  2. When lugs start to wear and the tread depth, to the point where traction is decreasing and fuel costs are increasing, it pays to replace your tires.

  3. You can minimize your downtime and unscheduled stoppages by scheduling an annual assessment with your John Deere dealer, before the use season begins. Certainly if the tire can no longer perform, it's time to change your tires.

Transmission, 9F/9R , PowrReverser™
  • Gear selection lever HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Two levers, one for speed and one for range, with the addition of an electrohydraulic left-hand reverser, provide operators optimum control and maneuverability.

  1. Range lever (left-hand side) selects three ranges (A, B, C).

  2. Gear selection (right-hand side) selects speeds 1, 2, or 3 in the forward or reverse direction.

  3. Electrohydraulic left-hand reverser allows for quick and convenient shuttle shifting between forward and reverse at any speed.

All speed gears (1,2,3) are fully synchronized for shifting-on-the-go capabilities, putting less wear on the operator and saving them time in the field. In both the 9F/9R PowrReverser and the nine forward and three reverse (9F/3R) top-shaft synchronized transmissions, gears are synchronized for low shifting effort while the operator is doing field or loader work and during transport.

 

The ranges (A,B,C) are not synchronized. This means the tractor must be stopped for the operator to select the range. However, with operator input, the speeds have been well spaced out to minimize the need to change ranges within applications. 

 

A 6D Series Tractor with a 15,000-lb load can easily get started for transport in range C3. 

John Deere has led the industry in the innovation of wet clutches. In this wet-clutch design, five 6.7-in. diameter clutch disks provide optimum clutch modulation for smooth operation; the disks are oil-cooled for a lifetime of service.

 

The biggest advantage of a wet clutch is its ease of use, as the required force to depress the pedal is minimal. Also, with a wet clutch, the need for frequent adjustment and clutch mechanism changeover is eliminated.

6D Series Tractors name and numbering
  • 6D Series Tractor HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

    6D Series Tractor

  • Decal HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

    Decal

The tractor model numbers are comprised of four positions. The first number designates the family while the next three numbers represent the approximate engine horsepower. The fifth and sixth positions are represented by a letter.  The first letter indicates the level of capability or price a tractor has. Not every tractor will have a second letter. But if it does, the second letter represents a special configuration of the tractor.
 
The size of the tractor is how large the tractor is compared to other tractors John Deere offers, using the similar sizes of today's product groupings and still sustaining the tradition of the name and numbering legacy. A lot of people refer to these tractors as a "Six" Series Tractor. This name and numbering system will not change that. The 6D is similar in size to the 6003 Series.

 

The second position is the tractor's approximate engine horsepower. 6110D at 99 engine horsepower, 6115D at 118 horsepower, and 6140D at 138 engine horsepower have been rounded to the nearest 5 horsepower.  John Deere has promoted PTO horsepower for its utility and row-crop tractors and engine horsepower for its 4WD tractors. This has lead to some confusion in the marketplace. Although promoting PTO horsepower has its benefits, using bare-engine horsepower allows for a more consistent means of promoting tractor horsepower in a global market. Bare-engine horsepower is measured by running just the bare block engine with the front fan. With "bare" engine horsepower, John Deere is using the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 97/68 E-C standard for determining the bare-engine horsepower at rated engine speed, given in metric horsepower, not SAE. This unit of measurement is used globally to describe off-road engines. This will allow John Deere to consistently promote the tractor's approximate horsepower within the model number across all tractors around the world.

 

The third position is the tractor's capability or price level within its family. In general terms, "capability" is the specification level of that tractor series, such as the type of engine, transmission, frame, and overall design; all leading to price. The letter D would equal a very basic tractor, M would signify a premium tractor, while the letter R would equal a very premium tractor with many options and features. The higher the letter is in the alphabet the higher the tractor's spec level. If the tractor has a second letter, the second letter represents the configuration of the tractor. For example H will designate high-crop and V will designate a vineyard design.

 

Another important part of the name and number system is the way that you pronounce these tractor models. Using the former system we would have said "sixty-one-forty-D," but since the second, third, and fourth positions are the engine horsepower and not part of the tractor's size, the numbers need to be separated.

 

The correct way to say this tractor lineup is

  • 6100D:  "Six-One-Hundred-D"

  • 6115D:  "Six-One-Fifteen-D"

  • 6130D:  "Six-One-Thirty-D"

  • 6140D:  "Six-One-Forty-D"

 

This is a significant change to what we've all been use to for years, but the value and the solutions of these tractors remain the same.

Service, serviceability

6D Series (right-hand side view) HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

6D Series (right-hand side view)

The hood tilts opens wide allowing unencumbered engine compartment access.  An easy-reach tether cord allows access to effortlessly close the hood.  Overriding the two gas struts permits the hooding up to 90 degrees.

 

The tilt-up hood provides easy access from the ground to:

  • Coolant recovery tank

  • Tiltable radiator assembly

  • Air cleaner

  • Front-mounted battery

  • Fuel filters HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

    Fuel filters

  • 6D Series (right-hand side view) HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

    6D Series (right-hand side view)

Vertical engine oil and fuel filters minimize spilling for cleaner and faster changes.  500-hour service intervals (when using John Deere Torq-Gard ™ or PLUS-50™ lubricant and filter) for engine oil and filter, fuel filter, and cab air filter reduce maintenance costs over the life of the tractor. 

Two engine fuel filters provide the needed protection for your fuel system:

  • One 30-micron primary filter

  • One 2-micron final filter

Radiator HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Radiator

Blowing out the radiator is easy and convenient with the 6D Series Tractors equipped with an in-base, tiltable radiator assembly.  Just open the hood to clean out the radiator, fan and cooling package.  The condenser can be tilted for better access.

6D Series coolant tank HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

6D Series coolant tank

The coolant recovery tank, located behind the air filter, is easily accessible from the ground.

Engine air filter HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Engine air filter

The engine air filter is located under the front of the hood above the radiator.  Undoing the quick-attach fastener allows for fast and easy servicing - no tools required. The power core air filter removes over 93 percent of foreign material before it reaches the filter element.

Cab air filter HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Cab air filter

The cab air quality system is comprised two fresh air cab filters.  A filter is located on the bottom side of the left- and right-side cab roof easily accessible by removing two wing screws and removing a sealed cover plate.

Fully-isolated cab advantages
By including the floor and steering column as part of the cab, it significantly reduces noise levels in the cab. It also creates a more sealed environment by reducing airborne particles entering the cab, such as dust, pollen, and other contaminants. 6D Series Cab Tractors are base equipped with a mechanical cloth seat for standard comfort. For those who will be operating on rough or unstable terrain, an optional air suspension seat gives maximum comfort with more suspension.
The cab is incredibly roomy, and the flat floor creates a spacious feel. The operator of a 6D Series Cab Tractor will appreciate the reduction in noise and vibration through the seat, steering wheel, and lever controls. By adding the cab to the tractor, the noise level is decreased by 17 percent.
The ceiling control panel is located to the upper right side and the air conditioning components are located on the upper rear corners of the cab, where visibility is not as critical. This provides the operator with visibility to the loader at height unmatched by any competitor. For excellent rear visibility, the fuel tank is located below the left-hand side of the platform.

Hydraulics, open-center, gear-driven, 2830 psi

All 6D Series Tractors feature a gear-driven, open-center (constant-flow) hydraulic system with a maximum pressure of 2830 psi (19,500 kPa).

  • 6D Series open-center hydraulics HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

The tractor incorporates a dual hydraulic pump design. The hydraulic and steering-transmission lubrication systems are functionally separate; however, both systems utilize a common reservoir resulting in ease of serviceability. Two selective control valves (SCV) are in base with a third deluxe valve as optional equipment.

 

Pressure available when needed

Pressure for the entire system is established by function requiring the highest pressure. As demand lessens, so does pump pressure and engine power requirement. Steering section (additional 6 gpm in base equipment) provides full power when needed for steering.

 

All functions return to sump, giving improved system performance and cooling.  By returning functions to sump, the system is simplified and provides faster service and increased uptime.

Ballasting and optimizing performance

Ballast, using implement codes

John Deere engineers have developed a code to determine how much front ballast is needed for stability and steering control.

  1. Find the implement code in the implement operator's manual.
  2. Use the following charts to determine how many front weights are required on the tractor model and configuration.

For example, an implement with a code of 194 to be used on a four-cylinder two-wheel-drive tractor requires 10 front weights.

 

IMPORTANT: With maximum front ballast, do not attempt to transport an implement with a code exceeding:

  • 217 for a two-wheel-drive, four-cylinder tractor
  • 225 for a mechanical front-wheel drive (MFWD), four-cylinder tractor

The following charts show the implement codes with the various combinations of tractors and tires sizes.

Use 6D Series ballast guide to plan for maximum productivity
  • 6115D with proper ballast HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Proper ballasting is an important factor in optimizing tractor performance. Ballasting allows for better traction and more stability. Maximum productivity can be achieved only if the tractor weight is appropriate for the application in which it is being used.
 
Different jobs require different amounts of ballast. It is important to match the amount of ballast needed for each individual task. What is right for one job may be wrong for another job.

Factors determining the amount of ballast:

  • Soil surface - Loose or firm

  • Type of implement - Integral, semi-integral, or towed

  • Travel speed - Slow or fast

  • Tractor power output - Partial or full load

  • Tire size

  • Type of front axle- two-wheel drive or mechanical front-wheel drive (MFWD)

Use no more ballast than is necessary, and remove ballast when it is no longer needed. Too little or too much ballast can adversely affect tractor performance:

Too little ballast

Too much ballast

Excessive wheel slip

Increased load

2-

Power loss due to churning soil

2-

Power loss due to carrying extra weight

3-

Tire wear

3-

Tire strain

4-

Fuel waste

4-

Soil compaction

5-

Lower productivity

5-

6-

Lower productivity


What is correct ballast?
 
Ballast should be adjusted as tractor use changes. The best way to check for correct ballast is to measure the amount of travel reduction (percent slip) of the drive wheels. Under normal field conditions, travel reduction should be 10 percent to 15 percent, or 8 percent to 12 percent for MFWD tractors.

 

NOTE: To reduce wheel slip to this level, more weight is needed on the front than with two-wheel-drive tractors. The ideal weight split is 40 percent front, 60 percent rear of the total tractor weight. 

 

Add more weight to drive wheels if slip is excessive. If there is less than minimum percent slip, ballast should be removed unless needed for stability. Correct ballast allows for the most optimal use of tractor's available power and does not make up for an implement or load that is too big for the tractor. Adding ballast does not improve performance if the engine speed falls below rated speed and/or wheel slip is not beyond the recommended range. (Correctly calculate wheel slip.)

 

Pulling a lighter load at a higher speed is more economical and more efficient than pulling a heavier load at a lower speed. It is more economical to pull a lighter load at higher speeds. Too little ballast or too much ballast can cause excessive wheel spin, soil compaction, power loss, increased tire wear, and increased fuel consumption, thus lowering productivity. Too much ballast can cause excessive soil compaction and rolling resistance, as well as shorten the drivetrain life.
 
Ballast should be limited by either the tire's capacity or the tractor's capacity. Ballast should never exceed the weight required to provide traction for continuous full power loads in third gear. Each tire has a recommended carrying capacity that should not be exceeded. If a greater amount of weight is needed for traction, a larger tire should be considered.

 

What is the recommended weight spilt?

 

A tractor should be weighed to accurately determine the amount and type of ballast needed. Weight should be distributed depending on how the tractor is equipped and the conditions in which it will be operated.

 

NOTE: The ideal weight split with MFWD is 35 percent front, 65 percent rear of the total tractor weight.

 

Ballast the tractor with cast weights to arrive at recommended total tractor weight and correct weight split.

  • Total tractor weight should be 120 lb per PTO hp to 145 lb per PTO hp, with 130 lb being the most common.
  • Weight split recommendations front to rear.

NOTE: Front weight requirements are determined by the weight of the hitch-mounted implement. Enough front weight needs to be added to maintain steering control of the tractor. If equipment with AutoTrac™ system, 40 percent front and 60 percent rear weight split.

 

What type of ballast?

 

Ballast carried on the 3-point hitch is preferred for leader work. This form of ballast transfers a portion of the weight from the front axle to the rear axle, therefore requiring less overall ballast than would be required if place on the rear axle. Rear hitch ballast is also more convenient to remove when it is not needed.

 

Cast-iron wheel weights are the preferred form of ballast when use of the rear hitch of drawbar is required. Rear cast weights apply weight directly to the rear axle and can be installed at the factory.

6D Series, 6110D-6140 D cab and open station require APY10029 weights. No other weights are compatible.

  • APY10029, 484 lb consisting of four L28228

Liquid ballast should be avoided in rear tires since it has a stiffening effect that causes the tractor to ride rough and generally reduces ability to control power hop. If liquid is used in the rear tires, all tires on the axle must be filled to the same level, which should not exceed 40 percent fill.

NOTE: Do not overload tires. If the maximum weight shown in the chart is not enough weight to operate safely, reduce the load or install tires with a higher load rating.

  • Rear-wheel weights HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Rear-wheel ballast should never be such that the engine cannot support full load at the rated engine speed while the tractor is moving at 7 km/h (4.3 mph). If the engine labors or stalls below 7 km/h (4.3 mph), this indicates there is too much ballast on the rear wheels. The following chart shows the carrying capacity per tire.

    Rate-of-drop knob

Conveniently-located hitch control console makes it easy to operate the hitch. The hitch works as follows (see illustrations above for referencing):

  1. The position control lever is used to raise/lower the hitch.
  2. The stop knob for the position control lever is used to preset depth.
  3. The rockshaft draft control knob allows the operator to set the required work depth on implements mounted to the 3-point hitch to either follow the ground contour or automatically raise the hitch to get through tough spots in the field.
  4. The variable draft control system includes draft sensing springs (as shown in the photo above) which react as soil conditions change and 3-point hitch load varies. Draft sensing is with the lower draft links that provide the input to the draft sensing control shaft. Use draft load sensing when one of the following conditions apply:

    a) Operating with a fully-mounted implement in uneven terrain. The implement will raise and lower to follow the ground contours while maintaining a nearly constant depth.
    b) Operating in varying soil conditions. The implement is raised slightly to get through tough spots so the operator does not have to shift to a lower gear.

  5. The rate-of-drop valve knob permits adjusting the drop speed of the implement hooked to the hitch or locking the rockshaft in position for transportation. Rate-of-drop control is easily accessible from the operator seat. Adjustment is performed by turning the hand knob:

    a) Clockwise for slow rate of drop.
    b) Counterclockwise for a fast rate of drop. Adjust rate of drop so that it is slow enough to be safe and prevent implement damage. Examples of 3-point hitch applications requiring rate-of-drop adjustments could be: row-cultivators, rear blades, box blade, roto-tiller, and snowblower.

Engine

Engine, external components and performance

Owners of utility tractors face rising input costs from almost every segment of their business.  They have high expectations for fuel economy and operational performance. John Deere research and development has addressed these requirements while addressing emission regulations.
 
With the 2-valve PowerTech E engines, you can expect superior performance in any application.
 
These engines are designed to deliver superior performance and are backed by rigorous testing and evaluation in laboratory and in-field testing.
 
This section will describe key performance and economic components visible from the outside of the engine.

Electronic engine management

Full-authority engine management is a John Deere-exclusive on selected 6D Series Tractors.
 
The permanent availability of precise parameter data enables:

  • Precise fuel metering

  • Speed and load dependent timing

  • Fuel temperature compensation

  • Automatic engine protection 

The result:

  • Extra power capability

  • Torque responsiveness

  • Low fuel consumption

Cold weather starting is also a benefit with electronic engine management.  Electronic engines will include a slow idle warm-up routine to increase slow idle for a period of two minutes during cold start conditions.  Engine slow idle will be 1000 rpm for fuel temperatures below 32°F, and normal 900 rpm for fuel temperatures above 87°F.

  • PowerTech E engine  HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

    PowerTech E engine

  • High-pressure common rail fuel system HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

    High-pressure common rail fuel system

Every 4.5 L PowerTech E (2-valve) engine uses a high-pressure common rail to supply fuel pressure to the injectors. The gear-driven high-pressure fuel pump instantly responds to requirements for more or less fuel flow or pressure.
 
The common rail contains extremely high-pressure fuel and is the channel flowing fuel to each injector. Pressure is generated by the gear-driven piston pump.
 
Each injector is individually controlled by the engine control unit (ECU). The ECU turns the injector on and off several times per firing cycle to control the fuel delivery into each cylinder. The ECU can sense engine rpm and load changes 100 times per second and respond instantly. Load and speed sensing allows each cylinder fuel delivery rate to be adjusted independently at the individual injector.
 
With each injection cycle the ECU can make the following adjustments:

  • Number of injections

  • Fuel pressure within the common rail

  • Start of injection

  • Duration of injection 

Cold-weather and high-altitude compensation are also precisely controlled for good starts regardless of weather and proper power levels at high elevations.

 

Benefits:

  • Extra power for increased field output

  • Wide-constant power band providing increased engine performance at low rpm (saving fuel)

  • Constant high torque allowing a pull capacity never experienced before achieving higher performance

  • Performance matched economical fuel consumption requiring less fuel per hour of operation due to the intelligent high-pressure common rail fuel injection system

 

The injection system also provides a way to have the engine run with a decreased noise level through a process called pilot injection. With the precise fuel injection capabilities, there can be a small amount of fuel injected early in the injection process. This process helps to lessen the combustion knock commonly heard from diesel engines. While the combustion noise reduction is most obvious, pilot injection continues to function at any engine speed. Integration of this state of-the-art injection technology into the John Deere 4.5L engines provides the necessary means to achieve improvements in operating performance, fuel economy, and exhaust emissions at lower rpm.

Cooling system HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Cooling system

The closed cooling system provides excellent reliability and serviceability through this automotive-designed system. The system is maintenance free and maintains the correct coolant level for optimum cooling efficiency. Inspection is easy and tools free.

Air-to-air intercooler HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Air-to-air intercooler

The charge air cooler is an integral part of the emission controls. The system is designed to cool the compressed air from the turbocharger (266°F/130°C) and provide a constant and efficient low-intake air temperature of 140°F (60°C).
 
This significantly improves the air flow to the cylinder head and increases the oxygen content of the air, which helps improve the mixing of the fuel and air so that combustion is clean (fewer emissions) and more efficient (less fuel). The charge air cooler is a closed system and is maintenance-free.

  • 6D Series tilt hood (right side view) HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

    6D Series tilt hood (right side view)

  • Engine oil filter HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

    Engine oil filter

The integral full-flow oil cooler is a highly efficient plate-type heat exchanger.
 
The cooler is integrated into the coolant cavity of the engine block providing two significant advantages.

  • High cooling efficiency as a result of full coolant flow from the water pump directed through the element.

  • Reliable cooling as no external lines are used.

 

The full-flow oil filter screens out dirt and contaminants to prevent system damage. The vertically-mounted full-flow oil filter is fitted with large pipes to reduce flow restrictions for increased reliability and engine lubrication. If the filter becomes plugged, oil is bypassed around filter to ensure lubrication to vital engine parts.
 
The filter is vertically mounted for no-mess replacement, keeping the tractor components clean. This prevents dirt and debris from building up around components, which could contaminate the system the next time the filter is replaced.

Oil dipstick HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Oil dipstick

The 6D Series Tractors have been redesigned with a tilt hood and an easy-to-access engine compartment to reduce downtime and increase uptime in the field to achieve higher productivity. Engine oil check and fill locations are located on the left side of the tractor.

The ease and convenience mean service items are less likely to be forgotten or postponed. The result is a more reliable tractor that will not let you down when you need it the most.

  • Power core air filter - closed HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

  • Power core air filter - open HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

    Power core air filter - open

As a higher air flow rate is required by the engine, the power core air filter helps ensure a clean performance-orientated combustion.
 
Power core air filter discharging systems provide:

  • Twenty percent higher air flow capacity

  • Spiral tubes and an aspirator tube, which vacuums 93 percent of the dust and moisture before entering the primary air filter - thus continuously precleaning of the air all year round

  • Thirty percent smaller than standard air filters with the same filtering capacity

  • Easier service and cleaning of the filter element

  • Minimized restriction of the air stream to the radiator

  • Filter fills from the back

  • Compact, highly-efficient system, delivers an unrestricted flow of clean air to the turbo

  • No tools required for servicing

Poly-v serpentine belt extends service life HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Poly-v serpentine belt extends service life

The poly-v serpentine belt increases power transfer to auxiliary components such as alternator. The belt is designed like a "V" to extend service life. The design also provides manual belt tensioning for greater service life, and it is easy to reduce tension for replacement.

Fuel filters HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Fuel filters

John Deere PowerTech and PowerTech E engines are designed to operate on diesel fuel blends and bio-diesel up to a rating of B20.

 

A dual-stage fuel filter is mounted on the left side of the engine to screen out foreign material and prevent injectors from plugging while permitting easy visual inspections. The first filter is a 50-micron primary filter element, while a five-micron secondary filter screens out remaining foreign material. The filter is easy to replace, and no tools are required.

 

The water separator improves fuel quality, increases engine durability performance, and reduces service intervals.  An operator can open an easy-to-drain valve to remove water from the system.

 

Filters should be checked daily or every 10 hours of operation and replace when required.  If biodiesel is introduced after the engine has operated on 100 percent diesel for a period of time, additional segment may occur, as the bio-diesel will act like a solvent, cleaning out the fuel system.

Rated engine horsepower ratings are included for reference to competitor's gross or engine-only power ratings. There are several ratings systems used by other manufacturers. John Deere uses the horsepower-rating standard 97/68/EC, which is widely used in Europe for various regulations.

 

How is engine-only rated and maximum power determined?

John Deere engineering uses a precise procedure to measure engine-only power levels. The 97/68/EC standard is required in the European Union (EU) as an emission test, so there is some relation to the power a tractor has as a whole functioning unit; however, the procedure requires only that a production engine and radiator are used on a dynamometer test.
You can use the 97/68/EC horsepower ratings in the above chart to compare to competitor claims of engine-only power.

PTO power and power bulge

The John Deere exclusive single-injector control, electronic fuel injection system, and other key engine parts, work together to sense engine load and instantly respond as needed to pull through tough spots. This reduces engine rpm fluctuation resulting in the reduced need to downshift the transmission. Fewer shifts result in fewer ground variations, providing more overall tractor productivity.
To match the engine power characteristics and improve economy of operation, the rated engine speed is 2100 rpm.

Engine horsepower standards

When comparing tractor performance information, it is important to understand the engine standards and measurements used by manufacturers when collecting the data.

ECE R24, 97/68/EC, ISO 14396, and ECE R120 refer to engine flywheel horsepower.  The ECE R24 measurement is lower because the power required to operate the cooling fan is included.

  • 97/68/EC HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

The 97/68/EC standard is defined as follows:

  • Gross engine performance at the flywheel (1)
  • All engine auxiliaries attached (except air conditioning/air brake compressor, transmission/hydraulic oil cooler)
  • Fan removed
  • Radiator removed
  • 25°C (77°F) ambient temperature when testing

NOTE: 97/68/EC corresponds approximately to ISO 14396 and ECE R120 standard.

  • ECE R24 HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

The ECE R24 standard represents net flywheel power (2) and is calculated from 97/68/EC performance figures taken into account:

  • All engine auxiliaries attached including transmission/hydraulic oil cooler (except air conditioning/air brake compressor)
  • Performance input of the fan is added, under the assumption that the engine is assembled in the tractor operating under realistic conditions.
  • 25°C (77°F)  ambient temperature when testing

Axle, MFWD front axle on 6D Series delivers tight turns and upfront power
  • 6D Series MFWD HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

For operators needing traction, the front axle Caster/Action™ mechanical front-wheel drive (MFWD) is base equipment on 6D Series Tractors.

 

The MFWD axle provides the following advantages over a two-wheel-drive axle:

  • Converts more engine torque to drawbar pull power for increased productivity

  • Reduces wheel slippage with less tractor ballasting for reduced soil compaction and increased fuel economy, and longer tire life

6D Series Tractor with bale spear HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

6D Series Tractor with bale spear

The MFWD front axle provides an exclusive 12-degree Caster/Action to deliver tight turns for headland turning or use within livestock building areas.

 

The Caster/Action design permits wheels to tilt and tuck under the tractor chassis to achieve sharp turns. It improves stability and steering accuracy, provides positive turn traction, and allows a maximum 52-degree turn angle.

 

Multi-position front wheels provide a wide range of tread settings that can get as narrow as 59.7 in. (1516 mm) or extend out to 79.4 in. (2016 mm).

  • MFWD fenders HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Large, 15.7-in. (400-mm), full-coverage, flexible fenders are available for MFWD axles. These fenders protect the operator station from mud and debris. The fenders feature a full range of adjustments to accommodate a variety of tread settings and tire sizes.

NOTE: These fenders are not compatible with front loaders.

Frame, structural design for efficient drawbar work
  • 6100D 2WD Tractor HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

The 6D Series Tractors are built on a structural-component chassis. This frame design provides a precise weight-to-horsepower ratio for efficient drawbar work. All 6D Series models weigh the same but have different horsepower ratings. The 6D tractor lineup provides more horsepower-varying models to better accommodate the diversified power-density requirements.

 

Higher-power-density models lower in horsepower for their weight are better suited for heavy pull-type tillage applications. Lower-power-density applications require more work for power take-off (PTO) applications. 

 

The engine oil pan and transaxle provide high load-carrying capacity for larger implements and are compatible with the John Deere 563 and 673 Loaders. The tractor is built to handle a variety of implements including tillage, hay equipment, rotary mowers, loaders, and seeding equipment.

Wheels and tires

Axle wheelbase length
  • 6D Series Cab Tractor HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Wheelbases are balanced to provide greater tractor stability. Balancing the wheelbase reduces potential for front-end float under heavy loads and during turns by matching hitch capacity to weight on front axle.
The weight distribution optimizes for increased traction, steering, and implement control. It also allows for a tighter turning radius and a smooth ride over rough terrain for improved productivity.

Optimizing tire performance

Knowing more about how to optimize your tires' performance can help increase efficiency and productivity and reduce downtime. Optimizing tire performance will also maximize the performance of your equipment.

  • 6D Series MFWD Tractor HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Optimum tire performance includes all of the following: excellent traction and mobility, reduced tire slip, greater efficiency, reduced soil compaction, and a more comfortable ride. Proper machine weights and tire inflation pressures are of utmost importance in optimizing benefits and performance characteristics of your tractors' tires.

Better traction

 

Power is wasted with poor tire traction. Power is delivered to the ground by the tires. Slipping results in higher fuel costs and longer hours in the field. There are a few ways to help maximize tire traction, which optimizes the performance of your tractor.

  1. Look at the footprint when selecting your tires. It is the most accurate measure of traction efficiency. A larger footprint provides more ground contact, resulting in more traction.

  2. Make sure that your tires are properly inflated. The efficiency of the power transfer through the tires depends on your tires and the proper inflation pressure. Over-inflation can cause a reduction in traction. As well as other tire performance issues.

  3. Replace your tires when lugs have become worn. Keep in mind that all tires should be replaced then wear starts to impact performance.

  • 6D Series MFWD Tractor HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

According to Michelin® Tire Ag Solutions product guide, about 80 percent of soil compaction occurs during a machine's first pass over the soil. When a tire with low ground pressure is used on the first pass, additional passes with the tires having higher ground pressure cause minimal additional compaction. Reducing soil compaction can have a positive effect on plant growth. Soil composition and moisture content are important factors affecting compaction. Wet or clay soil conditions are more susceptible to compaction.

 

You cannot eliminate compaction, but you can minimize it by using best management practices with your tires.

  • Using proper weight distribution of the equipment to transmit wheel torque efficiency.

  • Add weight and optimize your ballast to reduce slippage.

  • Avoid using liquid in tires when possible.

  • Use manufacturer's recommendations on tire pressure.

Maximize tire life

 

There are some tips to help you maximize the life of your tractor's tires. Select the tire that offers the lowest possible inflation pressure for carrying the specific load that you are wanting. Proper ballasting will also extend the life of your tires.

 

See ballasting

 

Follow the field speed recommendations in your operator's manual for the application and implement that you are using your tractor for. Following tire pressure recommendations will also allow you to reduce wear and increase the life of your tires, which will decrease downtime.

 

When is it time to change your tires?

  1. Sightings of severe punctures, cuts, or other abrasions on the tire are good indicators that tires should be changed and should no longer be used.

  2. When lugs start to wear and the tread depth, to the point where traction is decreasing and fuel costs are increasing, it pays to replace your tires.

  3. You can minimize your downtime and unscheduled stoppages by scheduling an annual assessment with your John Deere dealer, before the use season begins. Certainly if the tire can no longer perform, it's time to change your tires.

Transmission, 9F/9R , PowrReverser™
  • Gear selection lever HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Two levers, one for speed and one for range, with the addition of an electrohydraulic left-hand reverser, provide operators optimum control and maneuverability.

  1. Range lever (left-hand side) selects three ranges (A, B, C).

  2. Gear selection (right-hand side) selects speeds 1, 2, or 3 in the forward or reverse direction.

  3. Electrohydraulic left-hand reverser allows for quick and convenient shuttle shifting between forward and reverse at any speed.

All speed gears (1,2,3) are fully synchronized for shifting-on-the-go capabilities, putting less wear on the operator and saving them time in the field. In both the 9F/9R PowrReverser and the nine forward and three reverse (9F/3R) top-shaft synchronized transmissions, gears are synchronized for low shifting effort while the operator is doing field or loader work and during transport.

 

The ranges (A,B,C) are not synchronized. This means the tractor must be stopped for the operator to select the range. However, with operator input, the speeds have been well spaced out to minimize the need to change ranges within applications. 

 

A 6D Series Tractor with a 15,000-lb load can easily get started for transport in range C3. 

John Deere has led the industry in the innovation of wet clutches. In this wet-clutch design, five 6.7-in. diameter clutch disks provide optimum clutch modulation for smooth operation; the disks are oil-cooled for a lifetime of service.

 

The biggest advantage of a wet clutch is its ease of use, as the required force to depress the pedal is minimal. Also, with a wet clutch, the need for frequent adjustment and clutch mechanism changeover is eliminated.

  • Gear lever HOFFMANNS John Deere dealer Namibia

Two levers, one for speed and one for range, provide operator good control.

  1. Range lever (left-hand side) selects 3 ranges (A, B, C). 

  2. Gear selection (right-hand side) selects speeds - 1, 2, 3, or reverse.

Forward and reverse speeds

 

All speed gears are fully synchronized for shifting-on-the go capabilities. Gears are synchronized for low shifting effort under load.  Forward to reverse shifting is also synchronized; however, it is recommended to slow down the tractor speed in order to minimize premature wear of components.

Ranges are not synchronized; tractor must be stopped to select the range.

 

12-in. cerametallic dry clutch
 
A 12-in. disk consisting of eight double-sided cerametallic pads efficiently transmits engine power to the transmission to drive the wheels for the drawbar pulling required without compromising component life.
 
The clutch incorporates a separate disk for the PTO, which is independently actuated by the action of a mechanical lever. The separate disk permits the tractor to stop without compromising the PTO operation.

NOTE: 9F/3R TSS is available on all 6D Tractors except for the 6140D.
