Designed to make repetitive tasks easier and more accurate, a return to position (RTP) option is now available for use on selected H Series front loaders fitted to John Deere 6R Series tractors.
RTP automatically returns the front loader and its attachment to a choice of four preset positions, covering two boom heights and two attachment angles. It is compatible with H340, H360 and H380 non self-levelling and mechanical self-levelling loaders, depending on the model. Lift capacities of these loaders range from 1800 to 2150kg and lift heights from 4.1 to 4.5m.
With this option, the tractor uses the integrated CommandCenter display, which is standard on 6R Series models, and must be equipped with electronic independent control valves and an electrically operated joystick control. The loader is fitted with two sensors to detect the loader height and attachment angle. A complete loading cycle can be accomplished with just four clicks of the joystick, thus increasing productivity and reducing operator stress.
