John Deere will demonstrate its new 6250R tractor with the award-winning CommandPRO joystick, premium C441R wrapping baler and manure sensing system, at Grassland & Muck 2017, taking place in Stoneleigh, Warwickshire, UK, next month (May 2017).
The 6250R tractor will be equipped with John Deere’s triple mower conditioner (TMC), consisting of one front-mounted and two rear-mounted units. To achieve the maximum cutting width of 9.9m, a F350R 3.5m-wide front mower-conditioner can be combined with the largest available R990R rear-mounted units. The combination of the smaller F310R front-mounted mower with either the R950R or R870R rear mowers reduces the cutting width to 9.5m or 8.7m respectively.
The light, powerful 6250R features an AutoPowr transmission and can attain up to 300hp with intelligent power management. It is fitted as standard with JDLink telematics, including remote display access and wireless data transfer.
Developed to meet the high-capacity requirements of contractors and larger livestock farms, the new C441R premium wrapping baler incorporates a heavy-duty drive system rated at up to 210hp with 1000rpm pto. The new 18-roller bale chamber has also increased in width, from 117-121cm.
The baler has a number of enhancements designed to improve the machine’s overall durability and performance in both heavy, wet grass crops and dry straw. The wrapping unit now features a 15% faster wrapping arm working at 40rpm, and the 18% faster table transfer system delivers a further big increase in productivity.
There is a choice of 2m or optional 2.2m pick-ups, feeding a high capacity MaxiCut HC rotor with 13 or 25 knives. The baler also incorporates a full width parallel drop-floor system operated from the tractor cab, which enables blockages to be removed instantly. The machine is available with a single axle as standard or with an optional tandem axle chassis for improved stability.
The new manure sensing system will be featured on a Joskin slurry tanker working in the ‘Muck machinery demonstration area’ at the event. It is designed to adjust slurry spreader application rates to match field conditions, which helps to increase productivity and crop yields while minimising input costs.
