johndeereFor farmers who desire tractor performance in horsepowers ranging from 75 to 140 PTO-hp, John Deere introduces the full line of 6030 and 7030 Series tractors.

This new team of tractors can be
configured from economical to premium models to meet any farm, ranch or
worksite application and provide flexible performance to get the job
done. The high-performance PowerTech Plus engines are standard
equipment on all 6030 Premium and 7030 Premium models and can be
configured as either PowerTech E™ or PowerTech Plus™. They feature a
four-valve common rail fuel delivery, a fuel-saving variable geometry
turbocharger (VGT), exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and dual
temperature cooling. The optional Intelligent Power Management delivers
up to an additional 25 engine horsepower when needed for transport or
mobile rear PTO work.

Many transmission options are available and can be tailored to specific
customer needs. The field-proven PowrQuad PLUS™ transmission offers
four power-shift gears within four ranges and is available in a
transport speed up to 19 mph. For faster transport speeds and gear
selection, AutoQuad PLUS™ goes a step further with automatic shifting
within each of its six ranges and transport speeds up to 25 mph. A more
economical transmission option, SyncroPlus™, is available on the 6030
and 7030 mid-specification models and offers a fully synchronizable
clutch system that allows shifting on the go. Precision guidance
innovations are also available on the 6030 Premium and 7030 Premium
Series Tractors. Designed to fully integrate with new technology such
as GreenStar AutoTrac™ or AutoTrac Universal, operators can take full
advantage of precision accuracy and gain even more productivity from
these tractors.
