Considering a deere 61XX tractor. What are main differences in the D, M, amd R versions?

We have a 6155M and a 6155R.  Just looking at both it seems the major thing they have in common is the engine.  The R is a lot fancier with the IVT, front suspension, cab suspension, and fancier cab.  The M is kind of basic with a 20 speed power quad transmission, sort of a bare bones smaller cab, and solid front axle.  You probably should try JD's website to get more concrete answers.

I have two 6140r's Didn't like the M or the D. Built a bare bones R the way I wanted it. Build one on JD website and then get close to a good salesman to order the way you want. hth

I have a 6115M. probably as close as youre going to come to buying a brand new 4020. no bells and whistles, but VERY well built. great hydraulics, bar axles, big front axle , etc. no IVT, front suspension, etc.

The D's are basically a big utility tractor it seems to be about half the physical size of a 6r the same engine size, m is kind of the middle of the road, I think they are really similar to the 7030 small frames

Can only go up to an M in open station tractors. No R's

Many originally went to R's for integrated AutoTrac
Can be put on an M now though

New ones are Es, I don't think they make Ds anymore.

Es have the Top shaft synchronized 12 x 12, open center hydraulics and a cab like the 5 series.

Ms have the power quad and cab like the 20 and 30 series. I think the only hydraulics you can get with the cab are open center. Closed is available on open stations.

Rs have the deluxe cab and IVT with closed center.

I know there a few threads on here where people didn't like the Ms on loaders due to the hydraulics being much slower than the R series.

D or E are always open center hydraulics. M can be either way. R is always closed center hydraulics.

IVT is only available in an R

All Rs are auto trac plug and play

We own a 6125R with just under 4000 hours. Will trade for another 8000 size when the warranty is up on the 6125R

Dairy that we do custom field work for bought the D series and the thing had a dry clutch. I think they said it burnt up something like 3 clutches in one year.

We have a 6210R and a 6140M with a loader. The 6210R has IVT, Autotrac, suspension, 50K transmission. Most options. It is our sprayer, sidedress tractor and it also pulls silage dumptrailers. VERY versatile tractor, cab is a little smaller than a 7,8 or 9R, but laid out well. The 6140M has a 20 speed powerquad, which works well, feels a bit clunky if you are used to IVTs or full powershifts. Cab reminds me of a 7210, I think it is based on the 6x00/10/20/30. It is smaller, but functional. Ours has the closed center hydraulics and we run an Oxbo 30' merger with it. Works well. Greenstar ready, so it is easy to put an ATU in it and it already has a roof bracket too.

They both work, just depends what you want to do with them.

did this replace the Massey? hows the leg room. Tried the same model with cab. Seems like the foot room was tight. wanted to put feet back a little and the platform was there.

No we still have the Massey. this one is just an experiment to see if John Deere resale value/upkeep cost is for real. It may be time to start upgrading the Oliver baling tractors.

the platform is one of the reasons I went with this one. it is huge. the floorboards are made of heavy tread plate and has lots of room.
I am surprised they don't sell more of them, but the dealer said I'm the only Moron that doesnt like cabs. In truth, I'm probably their only customer who can't AFFORD a cab lol.

what did not feel right was the step up, were the grid plate met the little step up. about 3 inches. edge of the seat.
