John Deere says a "significant makeover" for its 6M tractor range will bring improvements in comfort, visibility, performance and technology in 2020.

The company says a redesign of its Cornerpost display will eliminate the cluster of instruments that surrounded the steering column, while increasing forward-facing visibility and functionality.

Up to four selective control valves (SCVs) will be available on the new models – with electronic valves being offered in the 6M range for the first time.

Switches on the electrohydraulic joystick are fully programmable, and direction of travel can be changed on both this and the mechanical joystick via the PowrReverser push-button, Deere says.

Deere’s AutoTrac precision guidance system will be available on the small-frame models for the first time, with JDLink telematics also included to assist customers with fleet management, service updates and maintenance alerts.

 "The design of the 6M tractor's right-hand console and the compact CommandARM console is perfectly aligned with the updated Cornerpost display in the A-post," Deere says.

New models will also have mechanical cab suspension and the proven Triple Link Suspension (TLS) front axle, while 360-degree LED lighting is available as an option for night work.

This is in addition to 310-degree visibility from within the cab and noise level reduction to 70 decibels in all conditions.

"It's a smoothly productive operator experience that is enclosed by more glass all around for a wide-open, unencumbered view," Deere says.
