    6M Series Tractors have been redesigned to meet stringent reliability and serviceability requirements. Daily service requirements have been reduced and are simple to accomplish with improved accessibility to the engine. All 6M models are equipped with a 60-degree hood, and the 6110M and 6120M feature removeable side panels, allowing easy access to reduce time and make serviceability even easier.


    These features allow you to quickly and easily check parts like:

    • Engine oil filter
    • Engine fuel filter
    • Coolant recovery tank
    • Air cleaner


    Additionally, the oil dipstick on the 6110M and 6120M allows you to check the engine oil level without opening the hood.

    Lights on the 6M Series Tractors have been positioned and designed to provide maximum visibility to the front, sides, and rear to increase productivity in any operating conditions. The updated cab lighting pattern provides 330 degrees of coverage while the hood lighting provides the remaining 30 degrees. You have two options to upgrade lighting with the Economy and Premium light packages available:

    • Economy light package
      • Two additional work lights in the front, side, and rear
    • Premium light package
      • Two additional work lights in the front, side, and rear
      • All lights are LED lights


    Both packages require the 14-V/150-amp alternator (code 8741) and 12-V/174-amp-hr battery (code 8747).

  • John Deere Connected Support™ prevents downtime and efficiently resolves issues with revolutionary technology-based solutions
    Connected Support technology Connected Support technology

    When you buy John Deere equipment, you expect reliability. You also know that problems can happen, and a product is only as good as the support behind it. That’s why John Deere equipment is prepared with technology that senses potential issues and can alert you and your dealer promptly—in the cab or anywhere you are.

    John Deere Connected Support is a revolutionary change to support that leverages technology and the connectivity of JDLink™ telematics to prevent downtime and resolve problems faster. These tools decrease downtime by an average of 20 percent, enabling faster responses to unexpected problems and reducing technician trips to your machine. For some issues, unplanned downtime can even be prevented altogether through prediction of the issue.

    With your permission, John Deere Connected Support:

    • Keeps you running by monitoring machine health and promptly alerting you and your dealer of issues
    • Saves time by remotely viewing in-cab displays, reducing trips to the machine
    • Reduces or even eliminates technician trips to a machine through remote diagnostic and remote software reprogramming capabilities

  • Focus more on the job and less on steering with AutoTrac™ guidance on the cornerpost display
    AutoTrac on cornerpost display AutoTrac on cornerpost display

    If you are looking for a low-cost integrated guidance system, 6M Tractors come equipped with AutoTrac guidance using the digital cornerpost display. For this straight track only feature, you no longer need an additional display or activation. To utilize AutoTrac on the cornerpost display, simply order your 6M Tractor as AutoTrac Ready (code 1758) and install a StarFire™ 6000 Receiver (code 1881). While AutoTrac makes straight passes, you can focus more on job quality and leave the field less fatigued after a long day of mowing, spraying, or other field work.


    Benefits of AutoTrac on the cornerpost display include:

    • Easy to access, setup, and initiate
    • Eliminate implement overlap and optimize machine efficiency
    • Reduce operator fatigue
    • Less cost than adding an additional display and activation


    If you need more capabilities, like different track types or documentation, John Deere also offers a 4240 and 4640 Universal Display. These displays enable AutoTrac guidance that provides enhanced usability, increased performance, and greater operator choice. Additional benefits include:

    • On-screen mapping
    • Documentation
    • Section Control

  • Boost power and productivity in operations using Intelligent Power Management
    6120M with Intelligent Power Management 6120M with Intelligent Power Management

    The 6110M through 6140M Tractors come equipped with Intelligent Power Management (IPM). IPM provides a 14.9-kW (20-hp) boost for operations that use rear power take-off (PTO) in high-power applications or in transport. Benefits of IPM include improved productivity, increased acceleration, and the ability to maintain desired transport speeds. The requirements for IPM to be active include: 

    • Transport applications: The minimum ground speed where additional power begins to be applied for all models is 15 km/h (9.3 mph), assuming the engine is already fully loaded. Ramp-up to full additional power occurs as speed continues to increase.
    • PTO activation: Power must be sensed going through the PTO drive clutch by the electronic system. When using PTO-driven implements, engine power is increased gradually when ground speed exceeds 1 km/h (0.6 mph) if the electronic system detects a correspondingly high PTO power requirement. Full power becomes available from a speed of 2.5 km/h (1.5 mph).
  • Increase versatility with a front hitch and front power take-off (PTO)
    6120M with optional front hitch 6120M with optional front hitch

    For all 6M Series Tractors, an optional integrated John Deere Category 3N front hitch with hook-end draft links can be factory installed. The high lift capacity of 4400 kg (9,700 lb) maximum and 3300 kg (7,275 lb) through the full lift range ensures compatibility with heavy front implements and ballasts. If the tractor is not equipped with Triple-Link Suspension (TLS™), an accumulator will be installed to ensure driving comfort. The front hitch allows:

    • Maximum uptime with quick and easy changing from folded to working position
    • The operator to be highly flexible with the front ballast
    • Optional availability of integrated front power take-off (PTO)
    • Counterclockwise rotating PTO (view from front)
  • Reduce fuel consumption with proven, easy-to-use IVT™ transmission
    IVT transmission control handle on 6M Tractor IVT transmission control handle on 6M Tractor

    Operators looking for a more comfortable, fuel efficient, and proven transmission can upgrade to an Infinitely Variable Transmission (AutoPowrTM/IVT) system for any 6110M through 6140M tractor. The IVT system utilizes a combination of mechanical and hydrostatic power, providing stepless and continuous power across an infinitely variable range of speeds.


    The single-speed lever is used for intuitive and accurate control of ground speeds as slow as 0.05 km/h (0.03 mph) to 40 km/h (25 mph). The wheel is quick and easy to adjust with the operator’s thumb to set the maximum commanded forward or reverse speed in each speed band. Operators can also enjoy reduced fuel costs and a quieter, more comfortable ride with transport speeds being reached at lower engine rpms. Additional benefits include:

    • Easy to operate
    • Less shifting time for better management of implements
    • Precise management of speeds
    • Under acceleration, engine rpm is kept to a minimum within the engines peak torque band to reduce noise and fuel consumption
