John Deere has added the 6120EH Tractor to its lineup to meet the needs of high-value crop growers who require high clearance and reduced speeds to match the speed of field workers.
High-value crop production requires the ability to pull implements and conduct harvesting operations over rows of varying widths without damaging the crop, says Dennis Ogle, marketing manager, John Deere. The 6120EH provides up to 30 in. of drawbar ground clearance to avoid damaging the plant or roots during applications such as cultivating, spraying, transplanting and harvest.
In addition, specialty operations that include vegetables and fruit farms demand extra-slow tractor speeds that traditional transmissions may not be able to attain. The creeper transmission allows for speeds as low as .14 mph to accommodate hand harvesting operations, the company adds.
Features on the 6120EH include:
High-crop axle maximum clearance of 33 in.
Multiple tread spacings of 72, 76, 80 or 84 in.
Creeper transmission minimum of .14 mph at rated engine speed
LED lighting package
Precision ag components (John Deere AutoTrac Universal 300, 4240 Universal Display, StarFire 6000 Receiver and JDLink)
Less drawbar and draft link option
