New John Deere 6030 & 7030 Series tractors from Mannheim

John Deere’s latest generation of 110 to 203hp tractors from Mannheim offers nine different models combining new Tier 3 engine technology with Intelligent Power Management, field proven features and numerous ergonomic improvements.

Replacing the 6020 Series tractors, which were introduced in 2001, the new 6030 and 7030 Series Mannheim made tractors retain John Deere’s proven full frame concept, modular transmission and lifelong components such as the Perma Clutch 2. The new range includes two brand new six-cylinder models, the 7430 and 7530, which extend the full frame concept for the first time into the 180 to 200hp bracket.

The new 6030 and 7030 Series tractors from Mannheim feature high pressure common rail PowerTech Plus diesel engines, which use the latest technology to deliver more power and usable torque. They are equipped with a variable geometry turbocharger for better fuel efficiency and engine responsiveness.

In addition, improved airflow and combustion efficiency are provided by four valves per cylinder in combination with a cooled exhaust gas recirculation system, to meet cleaner emission requirements without adversely affecting engine efficiency or fuel consumption.

All 30 Series Premium tractors are available with the unique Intelligent Power Management system, which generates extra engine power for pto and transport applications – up to an additional 25hp depending on the model range. The extra power is provided during rear pto operations when the tractor is moving and the pto system detects a load, or during transport when travelling above 8.7mph (14kph).

A number of styling and ergonomic changes inside and outside the cab are designed to enhance operator comfort and help increase productivity. The newly contoured bonnet gives it a narrower look and feel, while retaining the overall family appearance of the 7000 and 8000 Series tractors. The optional Xenon working lights provide more flexibility, better visibility at night and allow longer working hours with less operator fatigue.

The 30 Series tractor cabs are now rated at 70.6dBA, the quietest on the market, and feature hydraulic cab suspension (HCS) and an entirely new interior design. The cab is mounted on new pivot bearings at the front, and the rear HCS cylinders have integrated rubber ISO mounts to reduce noise levels. The dashboard, right hand console and left hand storage area come in new lighter colours with improved outlines, while the seat has a deeper base cushion to provide the driver with a more comfortable working environment.

For an easier reach from the steering wheel, the left hand reverser has been integrated into the newly designed dashboard, just like the windshield wiper lever and the direction indicator, which is now self-cancelling as in a car. To provide the driver with a perfect view of the instrument panel from any position, the whole dashboard can now be moved telescopically.

A new one piece, right hand console incorporates the most ergonomically placed controls for a wide range of applications and operating requirements, including a choice of mechanical or electrical selective control valves on the right hand side. Front and rear pto switches are now located directly in line and are in an easier location between the other controls, while the buttons for the Headland Management System (HMS) sequencing and AutoTrac assisted steering are integrated into the side of the electronic hitch control pod.

The new CommandCenter on every 6030 and 7030 Series Premium tractor is a combination of information centre and set-up monitor in one large, full colour display. For frequently used functions such as the settings for the hitch, engine, transmission, HMS and SCVs there are shortcut keys on the control panel giving quick and direct access for setting changes.

Those functions which are less often used are featured in a single menu page, which can be accessed by pressing a menu button and using the rotating dial. Extra settings can be engaged via free programmable hotkeys on top of the CommandCenter, which also serves as an information centre to display relevant tractor data.

For instance, to operate the new Triple Link Suspension (TLS) Plus system, the driver can choose one of three operating modes via the menu page, either Auto, Max or Manual. The system automatically produces a progressive spring adjustment to provide the best ride quality under extreme conditions. In Max mode, maximum stiffness is achieved by raising the system’s hydraulic pressure, an ideal solution for pallet work, for example, where placement accuracy is essential.

Transmission options remain the same as on previous models. The new 30 Series CommandARM option integrates the AutoPowr lever with the new right hand console, while for the ultimate in luxury a leather seat and leather steering wheel are also optionally available.
