New John Deere 6030 Series Tractors Broaden Customer Appeal

John Deere’s new mid-specification 6030 Series tractors are designed for wider appeal to a bigger range of customers, particularly mixed and livestock farmers looking for reliability, performance, higher levels of comfort and simple operation as standard.

Available for 2008, this new eight model range replaces the previous 6020 SE Series, and will complement the 6030 Premium models that were introduced in autumn 2006. The previous 6020SE model has not been continued, but two new models have been added at the top of the range to provide extra power options.

The full line-up is as follows:


Rated power
(97/68 EC)

Max power
(97/68 EC)





4-cyl, 4.5-litre PowerTech Plus

All models feature a Tier 3 turbocharged engine with the same high pressure common rail fuel injection system as on the Premium machines, but in a simpler overall package without the variable geometry turbocharger, exhaust gas recirculation and Intelligent Power Management system. The engines deliver 20 per cent constant power and a five per cent power bulge when required.

There is now a wider choice of transmissions, depending on model, including Power Reverser 16/16 (30 and 40kph), PowrQuad Plus 16/16 (30 and 40kph), and PowrQuad Plus 20/20 and 24/24 (40kph only). All include a new electrically operated left-hand reverser that is incorporated into the new tilting and telescoping dash unit.

A number of changes have been made to the cab, compared to the previous SE range, to improve operator comfort. Noise levels have been reduced to 71dB(A), rear visibility down to the pick-up hitch has been improved, and cruise control is standard. Other improvements include the relocation of the heater from the cab roof to underneath the seat, which greatly improves visibility when using a front loader.

Additional standard features include a remote pto control, large capacity fuel tanks up to 250 litres (325 litres optional) on the new 6830 and 6930 models, and increased lift capacity options ranging from 4 to 6 tonnes. An optional factory fit vandal protection kit is available, which includes a lockable bonnet, fuel cap and transmission oil cap, and both Parallel Tracking and AutoTrac Universal steering systems are available as field fit options if required.

Prices of the new John Deere 6030 Series tractors, which are available from November 2007, range from £34,309 to £54,334.
