Synchronized range module
Fully synchronized range modules with high contact helical gears provide large-tooth contact for greater torque transmission capability and quieter operation. A park lock is integrated as standard.
Creeper module option
For the 6110M-6135M the slowest gear is down to 0.25 km/h (0.15 mph) at 1000 engine rpm.
For the 6145M-6155M the slowest gear is down to 0.15 km/h (0.09 mph) at 1000 engine rpm.
Transmission declutch button
The transmission declutch button feature is base equipment on AutoQuad PLUS and PowrQuad PLUS transmissions on 6M Cab Tractors. This gives the operator convenient range shifting and increases comfort in all operations.
The left-hand reverser with the neutral position is located in an ergonomic position to the left of the steering wheel. This allows quick, convenient, and smooth forward reverse shuttle shift at any speed. The forward, reverse, and neutral positions are also displayed on the dashboard.
FieldCruise™ engine controls
With FieldCruise, the operator limits the engine rpm to a minimum of 1200 rpm engine speed and a maximum of 2100 rpm engine speed.
AutoQuad transmissions — button on the speed lever
The AutoQuad button is included in the lever to activate automatic shifting of the four PowerShift gears. The engine rpm at which the automatic power shifting shifts up or down can be infinitely set within a range to improve productivity in all load conditions.
John Deere 6M Series Tractors feature the reliable and proven PowerTech PVS 6.8L and PSS 4.5L and 6.8L engines. These air-to-air aspirated engines deliver a power bulge above rated power to provide excellent torque in demanding applications.
PowerTech PSS/PVS engine identification
To match the engine power characteristics and improve the operation economy of the machine, the rated engine speed is 2100 rpm.
The PowerTech PSS 4.5L and 6.8L engines utilize two turbochargers – a VGT and a fixed geometry turbocharger. This provides 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.
The VGT is electronically controlled and actuates the turbo vanes as required to maintain peak engine performance. PowerTech PVS 6.8L engines only have a VGT turbocharger.
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
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 aids in lowering the combustion temperature, which lowers the NOx produced as a result.
HPCR fuel injection system
Every PowerTech PSS 4.5L and 6.8L 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.
Engine control unit (ECU)
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.
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 allows 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:
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.
The 6M cabs are designed with functionality and operator comfort in mind. While in the cab, the operator will experience various features that will make the operator’s task easier.
Four different cab packages, including a low-profile cab, are offered on the 6Ms to match the operator’s needs. Protection from elements such as wind, dust, sun, rain, or hot and cold temperatures improves an operator’s efficiency and productivity which leads to greater performance.
The four cab packages are broken down in the table below.
|Cab packages with codes below|
|Base||All cabs include: right-hand steps, front windshield wiper and washer, tilt/telescopic steering column, right-hand operational controls, floor mat, hand and foot throttle control and overhead reading light|

The optional Tractor-Baler Automation (TBA) makes baling easy. This exclusive system manages most of the baling process and gives the customer the following advantages:
When used with a John Deere ISOBUS tractor, electric selective control valve (E-SCV), and (IVT™) transmission, the system will be able to:
The only action remaining is to forward reverser and manage the steering.
If the John Deere tractor is not equipped with IVT but has E-SCV and ISOBUS, opening and closing can be automated.
A single touch on SCV, brakes, or reverser will disengage the automation. In the same way, automated open/close can be momentarily stopped when unloading in hilly conditions.
Tractor-Implement Automation is an exclusive green on green advantage. This advanced technology option has won awards at SIMA and Agritechnica farm equipment show in Europe, a true cost/value guarantee.
NOTE: to run through fully automated mode, a John Deere Isobus tractor with E-SCV and IVT is required. A baler activation key and a tractor activation key (different) have to be ordered.
The 990 and 960 Balers offer ISOBUS compatibility as base equipment. This standardized communication not only allows the use of John Deere Greenstar2 1800, 2600, or 2630 Displays, but also the use of other ISOBUS conform competitive monitors.
Adapter harnesses for non-ISOBUS tractors are available.
The Baler interface displays information that is needed. The 900 Series monitors provide all required information:
Adjustments can also be managed from the operators station:
The 960 and 990 Balers can be ordered without a monitor for customers who already have an ISOBUS display, or for those who search more advanced application (field management). Displays other than John Deere Greenstar2 1800 can be purchased through Ag Management Solutions (AMS) pages.
The 900 Series Balers can be teamed with all ISOBUS certified displays. The Greenstar2 1800 monitor can be ordered with the baler to match traditional baling requirements. When not baling this display can be used for other functions such as guidance and spraying applications when connected to an appropriate receiver and implement.
The strong steel frame has been a John Deere industry exclusive since 1992, providing profound advantages over competitor solutions.
