John Deere 6230 Tractor Features
Everything you need to efficiently manage your crops or farm chores is on-hand in the John Deere 6230. From the spacious cab to the optional PowerQuad Plus transmission, there’s a whole range of features available to ensure you operate in comfort with maximum output.
John Deere 6230 Cab
- Adjustable steering column & dash
- Heating & cooling
- Optional CommandARM control arm
The cab design for the John Deere 6230 ensures absolute comfort. Each tractor comes standard with an automotive-style instrument panel, which has 2 large dials for engine and tractor speed. The steering column and dash are both adjustable to suit the operator, and heating and cooling systems are strategically placed on the right-hand console for easy reach.
The most recent 6230’s have an improved cab design that features a more intuitive CommardARM control arm, which puts all the key functions in one place and within easy reach. Optional for the CommondARM is a 17.8cm display, which offers fast adjustment and display of additional tractor functions.
This, combined with the abundant storage, panoramic windshield and multiple power sockets ensures all day comfort for every operator.
An Engine Combining High-Performance With Fuel-Efficiency
The reliable PowerTech engine has been thoroughly tested over the years to ensure maximum performance and reliability. The several transmission choices available for the John Deere 6230 ensures you will always be able to harness every inch of power from your engine.
To help improve fuel-efficiency, John Deere has added an electronically controlled HPCR fuel injection system. Combined with a dual-temperature cooling system, it will keep your engine running better for longer.
Servicing & Maintenance
Servicing and maintaining John Deere tractors is easier than ever thanks to the single-piece tilt hood. It opens up in 2 positions for quick access to the engine, radiator and components. Need a bit more clearance than the standard 45-degree angle the hood gives? Then override the gas struts and put completely upright to get maximum working space.

- 45-degree hood
- Gas struts
- Hood tilts completely upright when required
The engine oil change interval is 500 hours (subject to use and conditions). According to John Deere, the brakes and clutches require little-to-no maintenance and should last the average life of a tractor.
All of this helps reduce the cost of ownership and to help you save money in the long-term.
And if you purchase through a dealer, you’ll have complete service and support throughout ownership as well. Your local John Deere dealership is a part of a huge network and they can organise quick, efficient replacement of parts, tune-ups or emergency repairs.
