Field training in France.
There is some great new things on the horizon from John Deere, I have just completed field training in France for all AMS and Sprayer products, there was a great selection of Machinery to use and train on, from the Self Propelled 5430i, to the 724 trailed John Deere sprayer, and everything else in-between.
One of my highlights for the trip was the new John Deere 962i trailed sprayer, this really is a fantastic sprayer, coming from an operators background, the ease of use and ergonomics of this sprayer really shine though, with so many great attributes such as, a very low centre of gravity, up to a 6200l tank, Boom Track, swath control, auto dilute amoung others, all to make the operators life easier and more efficient.
Right though the whole range of sprayers the build quality is exceptional, with the best boom ride and stability in its class.
One the AMS (Agricultural Management Solutions) side there is constant development with JD Link Telematics and Guidance systems. Auto Track Controller is now available; this system means we can fit a fully integrated Autotrack system to other brands of equipment, with all accuracy levels, as an alternative we can offer the John Deere ATU 200 system which has been hugely successful as a bolt on steering kit, offering Auto Tracking on nearly any machine, with very fast fitting and being able to move it from machine to machine makes the ATU 200 great value for money.
Also another great Development is the John Deere Active Implement Guidance, Active Implement Guidance works with a wide range of steerable implements equipped with either side-shift, drawbar axle or disc steering. StarFire receivers are mounted on both the tractor and implement and it is controlled via your GreenStar display. Using either RTK or SF2 signals it follows straight, curved and circular tracks.
All of this development comes under the umbrella of John Deere Farm Sight, John Deere FarmSight integrates wireless communications and advanced precision farming technology to connect equipment, owners, operators and dealers to provide new levels of productivity and sustainable farm management.
It supports your business in three important areas:

With the DirectDrive transmission, John Deere has introduced a completely new technology to the agricultural machinery industry and a further option to the new 6R Series tractor range for 2012. This double clutch technology is already established in the prestige car industry, and will be available on a tractor for the first time.
DirectDrive has been designed to serve the needs of larger arable farms and contractors. It combines the handling comfort of an infinitely variable shift transmission (IVT) with the power efficiency of a mechanical transmission, and has been designed for specific tasks and load conditions which require continuous power, such as ploughing and towing, pto work and road transport.
- Key customer benefits of this new transmission are enhanced power efficiency and improved fuel efficiency, resulting in savings of up to 10g/kWh compared to an IVT transmission. Additionally, just like in Formula 1 racing cars, electromagnetic actuators enable fast changes between speeds and ranges under varying temperature conditions, to make this transmission even more productive.
- The operator can choose between a manual mode to take command of forward and reverse speed changes via the control lever, and an automatic mode. In this mode, the three range DirectDrive transmission enables fast changes between eight speeds under full load, and also provides fully automatic changes between the A, B and C ranges.
- Depending on the actual load, the Efficiency Manager function optimises the tractor’s efficiency by automatically matching the appropriate speed and engine rpm. As a result, the new DirectDrive transmission offers a cost-effective alternative to existing IVTs
- Compared to the mechanical/hydraulic power split of an IVT, the DirectDrive transmission exclusively builds on a fully mechanical power flow. This results in a power efficiency improvement of approximately four per cent, without compromising operator comfort and productivity.
The straightforward transmission design also provides a choice of driving strategies to match all tasks, including transport work at a maximum speed of 50kph with a significantly reduced engine rpm (in Eco mode). The new John Deere DirectDrive transmission will be optionally available on all six-cylinder 6R Series tractors from 140 to 210hp, from late 2012.
John Deere already manufactures the largest range of utility vehicles in the industry, and the new XUV 550 and XUV 550 S4 Gators extend the range even further.
These completely new 4×4 Gators, in green and yellow livery, will be available in both two and four-passenger versions – the latter being a first for John Deere – from spring 2012 (the two-passenger version was on show at LAMMA). They are smaller, lighter in weight and even more nimble than existing models, and are the perfect crossover vehicles for work and recreation.
To accommodate up to four people in comfort, the XUV 550 S4 model features a stretched chassis that adds a roomy rear bench seat to the two standard front bucket seats. With the flip of a lever, the rear seat can be converted in a matter of seconds to a cargo rack to provide additional carrying capacity for bulkier items. There is also plenty of storage space on both models, provided by a large sealed glove box and a sealed area under the bonnet.
- A powerful 12.1kW (nominal power at 3600rpm) V-twin OHV air-cooled petrol engine provides brisk acceleration to a top speed of 45kph (28mph). The standard specification also includes a fully sealed and enclosed CVT transmission, all-round hydraulic disc brakes and a best in class ground clearance of 262mm (10.3in), with underbody skid protection optionally available.
- Fully independent all wheel suspension provides 229mm (9in) of wheel travel at the front and 203mm (8in) at the rear. This gives a smooth, comfortable ride and superior traction both on and off the road, with or without loads. An integrated winch with recovery loops is available as an option, for use in more demanding terrain.
- The durable composite cargo box carries up to 181kg, and can be lifted from both sides. The removable tailgate features truck-style latching for easy operation with one hand, and there are multiple integrated tie-down points on the inside and outside of the cargo box for securing loads safely. Using the standard heavy-duty 51mm (2in) rear receiver hitch, the vehicles can also tow up to 500kg, perfect for gamekeepers with towed feeding spinners.
- A wide range of attachments and options will be available for the new XUV 550 Gators, including half poly or glass windshields and a poly roof, which can be built into a fully enclosed cab if required. Further options will include a front brush guard and rear bumper, additional front lights, a rear screen and a rail system for the cargo box.
We are proud to announce that Robert Bovett and Frank Winter-Taylor, two of our Service Technicians, have been awarded with Service Technician LTA 3, two of only three Technicians in the whole of the South of England. These awards are presented by the UK’s biggest governing body for the Landbased sector, IAgrE.
LTA3 is the highest qualification in this sector, and involves all sorts of different skills some of them being, solving practical engineering problems. They are professionals with supervisory or technical responsibility, and apply safe systems of working. They contribute to the design, development, manufacture, commissioning, decommissioning, operation or maintenance of products, equipment, processes or services.
Robert and Frank have done a huge amount of training, and passed a number of exams over a number of years to get to the level that they are now, so from everyone at New Forest Farm Machinery, Congratulations.

Following the introduction in June 2011 of the new 6R Series large frame tractors, John Deere is now unveiling the complete 6R tractor range.
Nine models from 105 to 210hp (125 to 240hp with Intelligent Power Management/IPM) are now available. Featuring the new John Deere tractor family styling, all 6R models offer new levels of power, performance and operator comfort, including improved suspension and cab visibility, more powerful hydraulics and increased lift capacities.
Models from the 6105R to 6130R are equipped with a Stage IIIB 4.5-litre four-cylinder PowerTech PVX engine rated from 105 to 130hp. IPM generates 20 additional hp (according to 97/68EC) for road and pto applications. The 6130R model is powered by a four-cylinder engine mounted on a six-cylinder frame. With its longer wheelbase, this tractor is designed for better performance, and features:
- Higher lift capacity
- More fuel tank capacity
- Improved loader performance
- Higher stability and driveability during transport and in hilly conditions
The 6140R to the 6210R are equipped with a Stage IIIB 6.8-litre six-cylinder PowerTech PVX engine rated from 140 to 210hp, or a maximum of 160 to 240hp with IPM (according to 97/68EC). John Deere’s fuel efficient diesel-only engine uses field proven technology to meet the latest emission standards, based on exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and a variable geometry turbocharger (VGT), with the addition of an exhaust filter that contains a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and a diesel particulate filter (DPF), as widely used in the construction and automotive industries.
Based on John Deere’s established full-frame design, these new tractors also have a longer wheelbase of 2580mm (6105R to 6125R), 2765mm (6130R to 6150R) or 2800mm (6170R to 6210R). These frames provide improved stability for loader applications. In addition, a higher permissible weight and payload allow bigger and heavier implements to be carried.
The large frame models offer the same wheelbase as the previous John Deere 7810 tractor, and can be fitted with larger Group 48 tyres with a maximum diameter of 205cm, which is unique to the industry in this tractor category. Similarly, the 6140R and 6150R can be equipped with group 47 tyres with up to 195cm diameter, which is also a unique industry feature. A 2m tread setting is available for either fixed or adjustable wheels, with the option of a flanged or rack & pinion axle on the large frame models.
An integrated front hitch with a lift capacity of 4000kg and a new front pto are also available ex-factory for the first time on 6R Series tractors. The front hitch is fully compatible with the new John Deere H-Series front loaders, which have been designed to provide maximum visibility and to match the new tyre size and tractor chassis dimensions.
With the newly designed 24-speed DirectDrive transmission, John Deere has introduced a completely new technology to the agricultural machinery industry. The double clutch technology is already established in the prestige car industry, and is now available in a tractor for the first time. It combines the handling comfort of an infinitely variable shift transmission (IVT) with the power efficiency of a mechanical transmission, and has been designed to provide outstanding efficiency for ploughing and towing, pto work and road transport.
Key customer benefits are enhanced power efficiency and improved fuel efficiency, resulting in savings of up to 10g/kWh compared to an IVT transmission. Additionally, just like in Formula 1 racing cars, electromagnetic actuators enable fast changes between speeds and ranges.
The operator can choose between a manual mode to take command of forward and reverse speed changes via the control lever, or an automatic mode. In this mode, speeds within a range are automatically changed as well as the A, B and C ranges. Depending on the actual load, the Efficiency Manager function optimises the tractor’s efficiency by automatically matching the appropriate speed and engine rpm. The 40 or 50kph top speeds are achieved with significantly reduced engine rpm.
The AutoPowr continuously variable transmission, as well as AutoQuad Plus and PowrQuad Plus with SoftShift for smoother gear changes under load, complete the range of transmission options. The 40kph AutoQuad Plus EcoShift transmission can produce lower engine rpm at high transport speeds, to maximise operator comfort and reduce fuel consumption. With the new AutoPowr drive pedal mode, operators can choose between three different settings depending on the application or their driving strategy.
The new 6R ComfortView cab has over 20 per cent more space and a similar increase in visibility. It offers a completely new level of operator comfort, with features such as the 7in full-colour GreenStar 3 CommandCenter display with optional touch screen and video capability, integrated climate and radio controls, Bluetooth connectivity with SIM card access and an optional panorama roof. The display is fully compatible with ISOBUS and tractor-implement automation (TIA) applications. Furthermore, the GS3 CommandCenter offers complete AutoTrac automatic steering capability.
Further options include the new HCS Plus hydraulic cab suspension and TLS Plus triple link suspension for the front axle, to provide optimum traction and operator comfort. TLS Plus transfers up to seven per cent more power onto the ground, and features +/-50mm of suspension travel as well as automatic adjustment of axle sensitivity and the suspension rate.
The new versatile lighting system on 6R Series tractors delivers 185 per cent more light output compared to previous models. It includes up to 10 cab lights integrated into the front, rear and sides of the roof line to provide 320 degree lighting, plus six adjustable belt-line and rear fender field lights. An additional six field, spot and road lights on the grille complete the lighting possibilities, as well as eight optional Xenon lights that are all controlled from the CommandCenter display.
Alongside the new 6R Series tractors, John Deere is also offering its newly designed 6210RE model. Based on the previous 7430E and 7530E Premium tractor design, the 6210RE will additionally deliver 20kW of electric power on the move, to run electrically driven motors on a range of tractor implements.
