Redesigned hood and improved turning radius make maneuvering in tight spaces effortless

6120M with redesigned hood and shorter wheelbase
6120M with redesigned hood and shorter wheelbase

The 6M Tractor was designed to ensure maximum maneuverability and visibility, no matter the job. With an updated sloped hood design, you can see it all – your front loader, attachments, and front-mounted implements – with an improved 5.5-m (18-ft) front view distance. This is 2.2 m (7.3 ft) more of visibility compared to previous models.


If you work in corrals and other small spaces, then you know how beneficial a shorter wheelbase can be when it comes to getting in and out of tight spots. The 6110M and 6120M feature a 17.8-cm (7-in.) shorter wheelbase (240 cm [94.5 in.]), giving you the power of a 6M Tractor with the nimbleness of a smaller tractor. Take advantage of a 4.3-m (14-ft) turning radius, perfect for cleaning out barns, working livestock, baling hay, roadside mowing applications, and more.

IVT transmission control handle on 6M Tractor

Operators looking for a more comfortable, fuel efficient, and proven transmission can upgrade to an Infinitely Variable Transmission (AutoPowrTM/IVT) system for any 6110M through 6140M tractor. The IVT system utilizes a combination of mechanical and hydrostatic power, providing stepless and continuous power across an infinitely variable range of speeds.


The single-speed lever is used for intuitive and accurate control of ground speeds as slow as 0.05 km/h (0.03 mph) to 40 km/h (25 mph). The wheel is quick and easy to adjust with the operator’s thumb to set the maximum commanded forward or reverse speed in each speed band. Operators can also enjoy reduced fuel costs and a quieter, more comfortable ride with transport speeds being reached at lower engine rpms. Additional benefits include:

  • Easy to operate
  • Less shifting time for better management of implements
  • Precise management of speeds
  • Under acceleration, engine rpm is kept to a minimum within the engines peak torque band to reduce noise and fuel consumption

Boost power and productivity in operations using Intelligent Power Management

6120M with Intelligent Power Management
6120M with Intelligent Power Management

The 6110M through 6140M Tractors come equipped with Intelligent Power Management (IPM). IPM provides a 14.9-kW (20-hp) boost for operations that use rear power take-off (PTO) in high-power applications or in transport. Benefits of IPM include improved productivity, increased acceleration, and the ability to maintain desired transport speeds. The requirements for IPM to be active include: 

  • Transport applications: The minimum ground speed where additional power begins to be applied for all models is 15 km/h (9.3 mph), assuming the engine is already fully loaded. Ramp-up to full additional power occurs as speed continues to increase.
  • PTO activation: Power must be sensed going through the PTO drive clutch by the electronic system. When using PTO-driven implements, engine power is increased gradually when ground speed exceeds 1 km/h (0.6 mph) if the electronic system detects a correspondingly high PTO power requirement. Full power becomes available from a speed of 2.5 km/h (1.5 mph).

Easy implement control using rear-mounted selective control valves (SCVs)

Optional electrical control valves (E-SCVs)
Optional electrical control valves (E-SCVs)

All 6M models come with the option to upgrade from mechanical to electronically controlled SCVs. To control a rear implement, up to four electrical SCVs or three electrical SCVs plus power beyond can be ordered. Each SCV features four positions – neutral, raise, lower, and float. The electrical SCVs are fully adjustable with the digital cornerpost display. Additionally, you can choose what SCVs are right for your operation with the following combinations of SCVs: 

With Compact CommandARM console:

  • Up to four electrical SCVs possible or three plus power beyond
  • Loader packages with electrical joystick available
  • Mechanical SCVs are not available

With right-hand console:

  • Up to three mechanical SCVs possible plus power beyond
  • Up to four electrical SCVs possible or three plus power beyond
  • Combination of two electrical and one or two mechanical SCVs available
  • Loader packages with maximum of three mechanical SCVs available
  • Loader packages with electrical joystick available
