MOUNTVIC 452408 307 John Deere 6030 either
John Deere 6030
I know that you might have already seen this tractor on one of my other posts, but I taught that to see some closer shots might interest somebody.

As I had mentionned before on another thread the 6030 were built between 1972 and 1977 at the Waterloo factory. 175 HP on the PTO.

Probably the best photo I took of this 6030.

I now wished I hadn't posted the first photo. Can somebody tell me, how I could I delete the first photo. I just hate the background on the first photo.

Re: John Deere 6030
Tony, unbelievable how a 2WD tractor is used to disk with such a heavy disk. I imagine that the soils are not too loose because that tractor could have a lack of traction. What crops are planted in that farm?
Regards.

Re: John Deere 6030
how wide is that disk?
we have a disk of 2,5 metre on the 3 pt hitch, pulling it with 90 hp, always hp's left, so now were putting some cultivator teeth(don't know the right english word) on it

Here is overview photo of a field.

Sorry I should have been smarter of taking a better quality photo.

Victor you are absolutely right, they can't use this tractor with this disk in all fields. If they did they wouldn't go far. The tires just don't have very much tread left.

I some areas they have soils which are called marl soils which are similar to clay soils up north and have excellent moisture retention. We have some very fertile soils in our State.

The main crop in this area is edible beans, and the planting season will start around September I believe.

I couldn't tell you the width of the disks Gerbert.

I would think about 10 feet, and I shall take a measuring tape with me next time.

Re: John Deere 6030
Ziko,

I believe you are on to something here. There seems to be a good demand for those tractors still. I did a search on www.tractorhouse.com and they only had 9 listed and on www.ironsearch.com there was only one listed.

One similar to the one on my photos was listed for $13,000.00 and the tractor is in real bad need of a paint job.

Re: John Deere 6030
DIN means engine HP,wich is about 200 factory,but most will be around 230 HP.
DIN stands for german industrial norm wich is mesured with fan,waterpump and more.
not like SAE wich is even w\o muffler.

btw,this disc is hard to pull,look the size of the dishes.

Thanks for these links! The nicest would be one with a cab. But I first need to have room for it. And I think it ins't cheap to get a tractor like that to Europe? Does anybody knows what the cost would be for that?

Re: John Deere 6030
Hi, does anyone has a good close-up from the front weights. I might be able to buy a double stack set here. But I think the big plate, which is the first weight is not the correct one, because it's a square one and don't have the corners, which go aroud the frame..

Re: John Deere 6030
Mark,

Here is another of mine threads with photos of two 6030. #472698

Not sure if they will be helpful, since that they don't seem to be much closer shots.

Also look on www.tractorhouse.com they have some 6030 listed and you can zoom in on the photos.

Re: John Deere 6030
Thanks Tony...but at the other threads the photos don't give me a beter look. I will try tractorhouse. The big problem is, that there aren't any other 6030 around here, so I have nothing to compare and I want my 6030 to be original and correct...

Re: John Deere 6030
hope this one helps a bit,
the corners are rounded off on all of them,the single bracket is different.

Re: John Deere 6030
Thanks jdeere, it sure helps. I know that the single bracket is different. I've looked it up on pictures on tractorhouse and at the mainweight I yesterday was looking, that was different from the pictures. I was square and had not the side curves, so I looked really strange. And I even didn't liked it. So I have to look further for the weights.... :-(
