New tractor from John Deere gives high-value crop growers more options

John Deere introduced Aug. 5 the new 6155MH Tractor that delivers all the field-proven performance and reliability of other M Series Tractors but in a high-crop configuration.

“The 6155MH is ideal for growers of high-value crops in California and Arizona, and for sugarcane producers in Louisiana and Florida,” Dennis Ogle, marketing manager for John Deere, said in a news release. “It’s especially effective for field operations such as cultivating, harrowing or spraying, or for pulling harvest trailers.”

The John Deere 6155MH Tractor features a rear drop axle for maximum clearance while working in high-value crops.

The rear drop axle provides additional crop clearance under the axle and greater drawbar clearance when compared to tractors equipped with a standard axle and high-clearance tires. The 6155MH can be equipped with several options, including:

  •  PowrQuad PLUS 16F/16R, AutoQuad PLUS 20F/20R or   CommandQuad PLUS 20F/20R transmission
  •  Factory-installed creeper speed
  •  Closed-center hydraulic system with electronic selective control valves   (SCVs)
  •  Front hitch with hydraulic SCVs
  •  Draft link with hooks

“We are constantly improving our tractors by listening to feedback from our customers and then responding to their needs,” Ogle said. “The 6155MH gives high-value crop growers the performance they expect, with more options to choose from, at a competitive price.”

The 6155MH is now available for ordering. For more information visit the John Deere website, or your local John Deere dealer.
