DirectDrive
Overview

The DirectDrive transmission combines the efficiency benefits of a manual shift transmission with easy handling similar to the AutoPowr™/IVT™ transmission. DirectDrive utilizes unique double-clutch technology giving 6R customers more driving comfort.

 

Since this is a mechanical transmission, it provides smooth shifting between gears with high efficiency. Smooth shifting is achieved by excellent modulation between the dual clutches in combination with engine rpm management to speed match the next gear.

 

DirectDrive uses efficiency manager to automatically change up gears and throttle back, similar to how AutoPowr varies its ratio to achieve minimum engine rpm with a higher transmission ratio. 

The best of both worlds - efficiency and comfortThe best of both worlds - efficiency and comfort
#

Benefits

  • Excellent mechanical power transfer.
  • Double-clutch technology (unique to PowerShift transmissions).
  • Ranges perfectly fitted to agricultural applications – less need of range shifts.
  • Very good reduction in engine rpm at 40 km/h (25 mph). An operator concept that allows transmission control similar to an infinitely variable transmission.
  • AutoClutch™ function.
  • Three set speeds and cruise control button.

The modular concept

The DirectDrive transmission consists of the range box, the dual-path module, and the PowrReverser™.

Range box

The range box in the 6R Series consists of three ranges perfectly suited for agricultural applications.

  • Range A: 2.7 km/h - 10.8 km/h
  • Range B: 5.4 km/h - 22 km/h
  • Range C: 13 km/h - 40 km/h at 1550 rpm

Changing from ranges is quick and simple and due to its adaptation to agricultural applications, it is hardly ever required in the field. Less range shifting means fewer torque interruptions.

Dual-path module

Overview

The dual path module includes the eight PowerShift gears, available in all three ranges. The PowerShift gears can change automatically, creating a very efficient drive strategy to save fuel and reduce noise.

The main technical innovation is the use of two clutches in one transmission. This system allows very fast shifting between gears and is highly efficient. The second gear is already lined up, ready to go, and just waiting for the change command to be given.

Infinitely variable transmission (AutoPowr™/IVT™)
Overview

The John Deere Infinitely Variable Transmission (AutoPowr/IVT) utilizes a combination of mechanical and hydrostatic power, providing stepless and continuous power across an infinitely variable range of speeds.

Single-speed lever is used for intuitive and accurate control of ground speeds as slow as 50 m/h (0.03 mph) to 40/50 km/h (25/31 mph). For model year 2015, the transmission has been revised so transport speeds are reached at lower engine rpms, ultimately reducing fuel consumption and in cab noise. Software has also been revised to ensure under acceleration engine rpm is kept to a minimum within the engines peak torque band.

Set-speed adjusting wheel

Overview

The set-speed adjusting wheel is the rotational thumbwheel located on the speed control lever. The wheel is quick and easy to adjust with the operators thumb and rotates infinitely with no stop or start position. When the operator rotates the thumbwheel, the ground speed of the tractor is increased by 0.2 km/h (0.12 mph) when the tractor is traveling below 20 km/h (12 mph). When the tractor is traveling above 20 km/h (12 mph), the tractor is increased by (1) km/h (0.6 mph). The set speed adjuster is used to set the maximum commanded forward or reverse speed in each speed band.

As the operator moves the lever within or between speed bands, the electronic management system ensures smooth, quick, and powerful acceleration or deceleration, regardless of load or ground speed.

While in motion, the operator can adjust the maximum speed of each speed band. With the lever in band one, the target maximum speed can be adjusted to 20 km/h (12 mph). With the lever in band two, the maximum speed of 40/50 km/h (25/31 mph) can be defined depending on transmission option. When stationary, all set speeds, both forward and reverse, may be adjusted while the left-hand reverser is in the power zero position.

An easy-to-use left-hand reverser is available in all the AutoPowr/IVT transmissions. The reverser control is located at the 10 o’clock position on the steering column for intuitive control. The left-hand reverser incorporates the following controls:

  • Forward direction selector
  • Reverse direction selector
  • Park (P) - Park lock (P) - Tractor cannot move and the trailer brakes are engaged. Lever must be in the (P) Park position to start the tractor. 
  • Neutral (N) – Tractor is in a non-parked position and capable of movement.
  • Power zero – Tractor is held stationary by the transmission.

#

Benefits

  • Pedal mode is ideal for applications like mowing, baling, or hedge cutting, where it is important to keep the engine speed at a constant rpm independent from the ground speed.

Manual Mode settings

Overview

Manual mode makes the transmission and engine independent of each other. The transmission does not automatically adjust engine rpm to save fuel. This can prove to be useful in applications like loader work where the variability of engine speed based on load is not needed.

Benefits

  • Allows for temporary stationary control of the tractor without using the brakes.
  • Quick and easy way for the operator to change the direction of the tractor.
  • Ensures that the tractor can’t be operated with the park lock on.

Electronic hand and foot throttle

Overview

The tractor ground speed is controlled via the accelerator and hand throttle. The engine rpm can be set to a specific ground speed using the hand throttle (A). Button (B) activates and de-activities FieldCruise™ (with two available pre-sets), which is an engine rpm limiter.

 

The specific ground speed set can be set by pressing button (C), this pedal lock feature works like the cruise control on a car (only functions when foot throttle is ordered). Button (D) allows the operator to drive with the minimum target rpm with ECO on.

 

NOTE: button (D) is only active in custom mode.

AutoPowr/IVT selector control via CommandCenter

Overview

The AutoPowr/IVT application setting employs four modes to take full advantage of the engine-transmission communication: Full auto, custom, pedal and manual.

Full auto mode

Overview

Full auto mode enables the tractor to make adjustments to the transmission operating mode automatically based on the engine and transmission speeds and the load on the tractor. This should be the AutoPowr/IVT setting for 95 percent of all applications.

Full auto mode switches between load control and fuel economy mode seamlessly with no involvement from the operator as conditions and applications change. Fuel economy mode automatically switches off when the power take-off (PTO) is engaged to provide full PTO power. Operators can set the maximum forward and reverse speeds for the tractor in their particular application.

NOTE: Activation ECO is not available in full auto mode.

Full auto screenshot on CommandCenterFull auto screenshot on CommandCenter
#

Custom mode

Overview

Custom mode allows the operator to customize the AutoPowr/IVT settings when full auto mode is not desirable. In custom mode, operators can turn ECO on and off. This can either be done by pushing the ECO button on the side of the hand throttle module or by selecting ECO in the transmission settings page of the CommandCenter.

 

When accelerating with ECO on, the tractor minimizes engine speeds, which reduce acceleration aggressiveness. As a result, ECO on should reduce fuel consumption in lighter, steady loads. In contrast, when accelerating with ECO off, engine speed can be higher aggressively to maximize productivity. The higher engine speeds with ECO off better enable the tractor to quickly recover from sudden load increases and not lose as much ground speed when load increases occur.

In custom mode, the engine droop settings can be defined between 4 percent and 30 percent with PTO on and off. The higher the droop percentage the more the engine rpm will be reduced when pulling before a transmission ratio change is made

Droop setting on CommandCenter screenDroop setting on CommandCenter screen

Benefits

  • Ensure that the operator has the best driving options when required.
  • Independent droop settings allow the operator improved performance and flexibility.

Pedal mode settings

Overview

Pedal mode allows the operator to change the tractor’s ground speed independently from the engine speed.  The ground speed is controlled through use of the foot pedal while the hand throttle determines engine speed.  Maximum ground speed is determined by the location of the speed control lever in the speed band.

 

Operators can lock-in a desired ground speed, without pressure on the foot pedal, using the pedal lock button (as described above). To unlock the foot pedal, the operator can tap the foot pedal, press the lock button, or press the brake pedal. When releasing the foot pedal, the vehicle decelerates to a safe creep speed. To come to a complete stop, the brake pedal should be depressed.

Operation just presses brake pedal to stop the tractorOperation just presses brake pedal to stop the tractor
The Auto clutch sensitivity change on CommandCenterThe Auto clutch sensitivity change on CommandCenter

Benefits

  • This feature makes the AutoPowr/IVT an ideal transmission for operations that require a lot of speeds (like baling or loader work).
  • Upon release of the Auto Clutch, the tractor will accelerate to the previously command speed (ideal for round baling).
  • Excellent modulation makes inching to implements and attachments easy.

Torque

Overview

The AutoPowr/IVT is a combination of mechanical and hydraulic components that are capable of providing low speed with extremely high levels of torque:

  • Allows the tractor to smoothly pull away, even under high loads
  • Enhances front loader operation by delivering high torque, driving the tractor into the pile without slippage
  • Retains constant working speeds with PTO implements, which have a tendency to push the tractor (spading or rotary cultivator)

Creeper mode

Creeper mode is a standard feature on AutoPowr/IVT. Down to 50 m/h (164 ft/h) the creeper mode is activated when the selected speed is below 2.1 km/h (1.3 mph) in set position 1.

When the tractor moves below 600 m/h (1968 ft/h), the engine speed is independent of travel speed. This allows the operator to choose the engine speed that best fits the task (rated speed for hydraulic or PTO usage, or low idle for fuel-saving operation). No additional power is needed.

Manual mode display on CommandCenterManual mode display on CommandCenter
#

Load anticipation feature

Overview

The load anticipation feature allows the AutoPowr/IVT to predict how much load the engine expects from the activation of the hitch or a particular SCV function.

In Full Auto Mode, all load anticipation features are active. In custom mode, they can be turned on or off in the custom settings page. When a SCV or the hitch is activated, the engine speed is raised to 1500 rpm (as long as the commanded throttle position is over this value). This creates a boost in engine power, which improves hydraulic performance and prepares the engine for potential load situations, returning an implement to work for example.

 

Also added is PTO load anticipation. If it is turned off, the engine does not react to PTO engagement, and engine speed is controlled purely based on load , If turned on (in custom) when the PTO is engaged, the engine rpm will rise to throttle position or pre-defined PTO cruise setting.

Load anticipation display on CommandCenterLoad anticipation display on CommandCenter
#

Benefits

  • John Deere exclusive feature.
  • Tractor recognizes when additional engine rpm is needed.
  • Saves fuel, because the engine shuts down when no additional power is needed.

Forward/Reverse relationship

Overview

Similar to the AutoQuad PLUS transmission, the AutoPowr/IVT can also adjust the forward/reverse speed ratio. The reverse speeds can be set to a maximum of  30 percent higher and 70 percent lower than forward speeds but only in range 1. In range 2, the forward-to-reverse speed ratio is 1:1, up to 22 km/h (14 mph). Above that, the reverse speeds will only go up to 30 km/h (19 mph).

Brake with integrated Auto Clutch function

Overview

With the AutoPowr/IVT, no clutching is required to stop the tractor. After the brakes are released, the tractor automatically accelerates back to its previous speed (if using hand throttle) The effect of Auto Clutch can also be set via the operator CommandCenter.

Rear-mounted selective control valves (SCVs)
Overview

To control a rear implement, up to six SCVs or five SCVs, plus Power Beyond can be ordered (6175R-6215R). The SCVs can be controlled electrically. Up to four mechanical SCV are available in combination with Power Beyond. All mechanical or electrical SCVs feature four positions: neutral, raise, lower, and float.

Benefits

  • Release levers make disconnecting hydraulic hoses easy
  • Relocated valves improve operator's visibility to the rear hitch
  • Up to six rear SCVs give operators total flexibility

Premium-couplers control valves also have an additional lock function (position 3), which holds the control lever in the raise or lower position until the pressure in the oil circuit has reached a predetermined value (for example, when the control cylinder has reached its end position).

 

In position 2, the control lever returns to neutral as soon as it is released and is the setting for normal hydraulic operation.

 

If an implement is connected, pressure connection has to be connected to the lower coupler. With standard SCVs, a valve prevents sudden loss of pressure caused by leakage when the engine is shut off.

On premium SCVs, the likelihood of leakage is further diminished.

SCV flow setup

Overview

SCV flow rate can be programmed between 0.04 and 10 allowing fine tuning for implements with different hydraulic requirements.

Behavior can be set between linear (red), progressive (green), or a combination (yellow) for exact flow modulation and precise valve management.

  • Linear means that the distance travelled by the SCV/ICV corresponds to the distance travelled by the control lever/multifunction lever
  • Progressive means that initially the distance travelled by the SCV/ICV is less than that travelled by the control lever/multifunction lever (giving a more sensitive start to the movement)

ComfortView™ operator environment
Overview

ComfortView cabs feature a modern, automotive-style instrument panel as base equipment. The instrument pod has two large analog dials for engine and tractor speed, as well as two smaller dials that display fuel level, DEF level, and coolant temperature. The steering column and dash are adjustable to suit the operator's needs. The column tilts toward the operator and a lever on the left-hand side allows for the column to telescope out to the desired level.

 

A dimming mode automatically reduces the brightness of the instrument illumination when the tractor lights are used.

CommandARM controls

Overview

The 6R Series features a redesigned CommandARM with all key vehicle functions in one place.
The updated CommandARM layout is only available with Infinitely Variable Transmission (IVT™)  and DirectDrive transmissions.

The base 17.8 cm (7-in.) (4100 CommandCenter) or optional 25.4 cm (10-in.) (4600 CommandCenter™) display is fully integrated on to CommandARM and offers fast adjustment of additional tractor functions.

The CommandARM design allows for 37.5 degrees of total seat swivel and adjustable positioning matching the operator’s preference. (30 degrees right and 7.5 degrees left)

Hydraulic and hitch controls utilize fingertip paddle pods for raise/lower and extend/retract functions. The CommandARM offers up to a maximum of six electronic selective control valves (E-SCVs) (without electronic joystick). The optional electrical joystick replaces fingertip paddle pods for control of selective control vales (SCVs) and allows for programmable hydraulic functionality according to operator preference.(A maximum of five E-SCVs can be ordered with the electronic joystick).

Controls for radio, lights, rotary beacon, and hazard flashers are located to the center right on the CommandARM along with PTO for front (if equipped) and rear PTO. Additionally, located on the right side of the CommandARM is an encoder wheel, which allows for finite positioning of the rear 3-point hitch. Three buttons near the encoder for set lock and return to height. Adjustment knobs for the 3-point hitch are located under the cover for the CommandARM storage compartment and allow for adjustment of the rate of drop, hitch height limit, and depth control.

The transmission control and throttle are placed on the left side of the CommandARM closest to the operator for convenient setting and adjustment. The throttle design incorporates buttons which control engine cruise speed, pedal lock/cruise control, and transmission Eco settings (for more information refer to the AutoPowr™ or DirectDrive transmissions pages).

Located just to the right of the throttle is the auto-steer activation button and four sequence controls for iTEC™ functions. Behind the iTEC sequence controls are buttons which control the activation and deactivation of MFWD and differential lock.

Differential lock can also be activated by foot switch on the cab floor. A new feature in the 6R Series Tractor is auto steering angle dependent differential lock button.

Operators can easily identify controls by icons located near levers, and each functional area is color-coded.

  • Functions: motion (throttle, transmission) - orange
  • Mechanical front-wheel drive (MFWD) and hydraulics (hitch and SCVs) - black
  • PTO - yellow

Right-hand console controls

Overview

The right-hand control console is angled for operator comfort and ease of operation. The design of the right-hand console is controlled by the type of SCVs chosen.

Mechanically actuated valves are controlled by traditional levers while electronically actuated valves are controlled by fingertip paddle pods. Controls for the ComfortView cab are grouped by function on the right-hand console.

The modular console panel provides individual access to hand throttle, transmission controls, MFWD switch (if equipped), hitch command console, load/draft control, SCV, and PTO controls.

The console is also the location of the CommandCenter. The CommandCenter allows the operator to customize important tractor functions.

This option requires a PowrQuad™ or AutoQuad™ transmission.

Benefits

  • A constant power range of 2100 rpm down to 1500 rpm
  • Power bulge of 10 percent
  • Greater tractor productivity
  • Responsive power reducing the need to downshift the transmission

Details

To match the engine power characteristics and improve the operation economy of the machine, the rated engine speed is 2100 rpm.

Series turbochargers

Overview

The PowerTech PSS 4.5L and 6.8L utilizes two turbochargers – a VGT and a fixed geometry turbocharger, providing 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.

PowerTech PSS engine series turbochargersPowerTech PSS engine series turbochargers
#

Benefits

  • Deliver high power density
  • More low-speed torque and responsiveness to meet varying load conditions

VGT

Overview

The VGT is electronically controlled and actuates the turbo vanes as required to maintain peak engine performance.

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.

PowerTech VGTPowerTech VGT
#

Benefits

  • Increased low rpm torque 
  • Quicker response to load
  • Increased peak torque
  • Improved fluid economy
  • Improved performance at high altitudes

Air-to-air after cooling

Overview

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 aid in lowering the combustion temperature, which lowers the NOx produced as a result.

Benefits

  • Higher horsepower
  • Less NOx production

HPCR fuel injection system

Overview

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.

High-pressure common railHigh-pressure common rail
#

Benefits

  • Instantly respond to load changes reducing the need to change gears
  • Improved fluid economy

Engine control unit (ECU)

Overview

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.

ECUECU
#

Benefits

  • Optimized fluid economy
  • Maximum engine performance

Details

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:

  • Number of injections
  • Fuel pressure in the common rail
  • Start of injection
  • Duration of injection

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.

Lighting options provide maximum visibility in every direction
Overview

Lights on the 6R Series Tractors have been positioned and designed to provide maximum visibility to the front, sides, and rear of the tractor to increase productivity in any operating condition. The cab lighting pattern provides 330 degrees of coverage while the hood lighting provides the remaining 30 degrees for completely programmable, 360-degree, stadium-style lighting.

  • A second beacon light can be field installed on the right side of the cab roof.
Triple-Link Suspension (TLS™) Plus: More than comfort, it is a performance feature
More productivity - greater operator's comfort

CommandCenter™ console TLS Plus provides exclusive front suspension using a hydropneumatic self-leveling system to increase productivity and improve ride dramatically. TLS Plus provides more control over the front suspension of the tractor. In the field, the TLS Plus front suspension maintains ground-to-tire contact, enabling more power to the ground.

 

Front axle adjustment on CommandCenterFront axle adjustment on CommandCenter
#

Auto mode

The TLS Plus reacts to inputs, which provides the best comfort and stability. Inputs include travel speed, implement weight, draft characteristics, and braking activity. The TLS Plus activates whenever the tractor exceeds 1.5 km/h (0.9 mph).

 

Maximum mode

The suspension is set to maximum hardness, which is preferable for front loader operation. This allows the operator to adjust the suspension for different situations. If the tractor exceeds 35 km/h (22 mph), the hardness is reduced to provide greater driving comfort. When dropping below 25 km/h (15 mph), maximum is reactivated.

 

Manual mode

This setting can be useful when attaching mounted implements to the front hitch. When activated, the axle settles in its mid position and then can be raised or lowered manually with the touchscreen or shortcut buttons F and G. The manual setting is overridden when the travel speed exceeds 5 km/h (3 mph) and returns to the previously selected setting of automatic or maximum.

The system

 

 


Vertical linkage double-acting cylinders 

First link: vertical linkage

Two double-acting hydraulic cylinders control the vertical movement of the axle, which leads to excellent sensitivity.

 
Exclusive long-longitudinal member

Second link: longitudinal linkage

This linkage controls longitudinal movement of the axle. It is the connection point for pulling and braking forces generated by the front axle to the tractor’s center of gravity. This increases the tractor’s stability and the tractor’s draft and drawbar performance.

 
Third link controlling lateral movement

Third link: lateral linkage

This third link holds the axle laterally. These few simple components ensure excellent suspension quality and reliability with reduced maintenance.

A full stroke of the suspension typically takes 1 second, allowing the system time to distinguish between typical terrain inputs or level changes. This prevents overreactions.

In addition to active central leveling of the suspension, the John Deere TLS Plus adopts a constantly variable rod side pressure by using a closed loop system. When the suspension reacts at a different frequency, which could be detrimental to driver comfort, the system then fine-tunes the rod side pressure, changing the spring stiffness and improving the ride behavior.

ISOBUS and tractor-baler automation offer new baling experience
Tractor-Baler Automation simplifies baling experience
A single manual action; system manages the restA single manual action; system manages the rest
TBA awardsTBA awards

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:

  • High baling comfort a single action to bale instead of four.
  • Error proof baling - even after 10 working hours, the system does not forget any action; a true advantage for an inexperienced driver.
  • Constant bale quality - same diameter bale after bale
  • Constant productivity - no reduced efficiency due to operators fatigue.

When used with a John Deere ISOBUS tractor, electric selective control valve (E-SCV), and (IVT™) transmission, the system will be able to:

  • Stop the tractor when bale size is reached
  • Wrap the bale
  • Open the gate
  • Close the gate when bale is unloaded

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.
