The 6140B Cab Tractor is equipped with the proven John Deere 6-Cylinder Turbo Charged Tier III engine, incorporating the latest John Deere engine technology. This tractor boasts with 140hp (103 kW) of rated power. The 6140B is the preferred answer to customer needs in grain, hay and forage, sugar cane, timber, and highvalue crop production systems.

John Deere Africa Middle East recently introduced their 6140B Cab Tractor as an addition to the current 6B model line-up. All farmers can benefit from the versatility of this machine, especially those working in primary operations.

What makes the 6140B Cab Tractor different from the current 6B line-up?

To date, the 6B series was only available with a 4-cylinder, 4.5-litre engine. The new 6140B Cab model is the first to be equipped with a more powerful 6-cylinder engine, which incorporates an electronically controlled high-pressure common rail fuel injection system, intercooler, and heavy-duty PowerCore™ air filter system. Thus, optimised fuel efficiency, immediate torque response, and supreme engine reliability are all advantages of this state-of-theart engine technology.

Moreover, this high-quality and well-balanced heavy-duty tractor can execute any application ranging from heavy tillage, planting, spraying, spreading, mowing, baling, and material handling to transport work, providing peace of mind for your farming operation. This machine can also accommodate implements such as rippers, speed discs, field cultivators, 8-row planters, and sprayers.

Transmission options

Available in a Standard and Deluxe model, the 6140B Cab Tractor comes equipped with either a 12F/4R TSS 40 km/h transmission with a wet clutch; or a 24F/12R TSS 40 km/h transmission with Hi-Lo, PowerReverser™ and wet clutch. This allows customers to choose the tractor solution that best fits their farming needs.

Adding to the versatility offered by the two transmissions options, optimised performance and efficiency are further enhanced by the heavy-duty CAT II 3-point hitch with 5 400 kg hitch lift capacity, three SCVs with 200-bar open centre constant flow hydraulics, and a 540/100 rpm reversible PTO.
