Lockout features are available for:
- Precision Ag Technology applications
- Power take-off (PTO)
- FieldCruise™ engine controls
- Machine monitor
On-screen help and diagnostic text
There are a number of different ways to get meaningful on-screen help when navigating the Generation 4 CommandCenter. Operators can find the help icon on the shortcut bar on the bottom of every page. This icon gives detailed information on everything from tractor operation to application information. Simply select the help icon and navigate to the information section that is needed.
Additionally, application-based help is also available in all locations of the CommandCenter. Simply click on the (i) icon available on the title bar and it will lead directly to more information on the application currently being used.
Diagnostic text and information is available for better understanding of whether applications are operating as directed.
The machine monitor application provides the user instantaneous readings about the status or condition of the machine. Values shown in the machine monitor vary by application, but typically include parameters like engine speed, coolant temperature, and ground speed. The machine monitor supports run page modules in the layout manager, allowing the user to populate specific machine parameters directly to a run page.
NOTE: The machine monitor application replaces part of the Universal Performance Monitor in previous machines.
The work monitor application displays the performance information about the task being performed by the machine. The user is shown averages, totals, and productivity of the machine, such as area worked, average working speed, and fuel usage. The values of the work monitor can be reset by the user at any time. Specific values of the work monitor can be configured by the user to be shown on a run page.
NOTE: The work monitor application replaces part of the universal performance monitor in previous machines.
Tractors with a 4200 CommandCenter are equipped with one video input and tractors with a 4600 CommandCenter have two video inputs. The operator has the ability to set a variety of triggers, including reverse, PTO, hitch, and selective control valve (SCV) levers to activate the camera. The image will then appear on the CommandCenter display. The camera (video observation system) is available through JD Parts and Ag and Industrial (A & I) Products.
John Deere Generation 4 CommandCenter processors
A Generation 4 CommandCenter is made up of a processor and a display. Two processor options are available for the Generation 4 CommandCenter.
The 4600 Processor is the premium processor. Available features with the premium processor include:
- Compatible with 25.4-cm (10-in.) touchscreen display

The 4200 Processor is base equipment on all 6R Tractors. It offers:
- Compatible with 21.3-cm (8.4-in.) touchscreen display
- One video camera input
- One USB input
- AutoTrac capable (machine-specific activation sold separately)
Generation 4 CommandCenter displays are available in the following configurations:
- 21.3-cm (8.4-in.) display on the 4200 CommandCenter
- 25.4-cm (10-in.) display on the 4600 CommandCenter
For those wanting to maximize their viewing real estate, the 26-cm (10-in.) touchscreen color display is an excellent choice. With the 26-cm (10-in.) display, the title bar and all shortcut keys may be viewed at all times. Operators can monitor more items at once on the 26-cm (10-in.) touchscreen display.
Rear-mounted selective control valves (SCVs)
To control a rear implement, up to six SCVs or five SCVs plus Power Beyond can be ordered (6145R-6250R). For (6110R- 6130R) up to five SCVs or four SCVs plus Power Beyond can be ordered. The SCVs can be controlled electrically. Up to four mechanical SCVs are available, in combination with Power Beyond. All mechanical or electrical SCVs feature four positions - neutral, raise, lower, and float.
- Release levers make disconnecting hydraulic hoses easy
- Relocated valves improve operator's visibility to the rear hitch
- Up to six rear SCVs give operators total flexibility
MECHANICAL CONTROL VALVES
The tractor may be equipped with one type of mechanical control valves: premium (450 Series).
Premium-couplers control valves also have an additional lock function (position 3), which holds the control lever in the raise or lower position until the pressure in the oil circuit has reached a predetermined value (e.g., when the control cylinder has reached its end position).
In position 2, the control lever returns to neutral as soon as it is released and is the setting for normal hydraulic operation.
If an implement is connected, pressure connection has to be connected to the lower coupler. With standard SCVs, a valve prevents sudden loss of pressure caused by leakage when the engine is shut off.
On premium SCVs, the likelihood of leakage is further diminished.
Premium mechanical control valve (premium)
- Position 1
- Position 2
- Position 3
- Hydraulic oil flow control
ELECTRICAL CONTROL VALVES
The tractor may be equipped with the premium (450 Series) control valves. All main characteristics can be controlled by the CommandCenter™ display.
HYDRAULIC CONTROL OPTIONS
Hydraulic set up
Shortcut button right-hand console
Simply push the hydraulic symbol on the right-hand side console or the CommandCenter and the CommandCenter display shows a setup menu to:
- Monitor valve status - detent, float, or neutral
- Adjust maximum flow and detent (combine for both direction or separate extent and retract adjustment)
- Time detent - this is particularly useful when repeat SCV operations are performed, such as lowering a mower-conditioner plow or cycling planter markers.
- Continuous flow detent - this is particularly useful when a hydraulic motor is used, such as on an air seeder.
SCV flow setup
SCV flow rate can be programmed between 0.04 and 10 allowing fine tuning for implements with different hydraulic requirement.
Behavior can be set between linear (red), progressive (green), or a combination (yellow) for exact flow modulation and precise valve management.
- Linear means that the distance travelled by the SCV/ICV corresponds to the distance travelled by the control lever/multifunction lever
- Progressive means that initially the distance travelled by the SCV/ICV is less than that travelled by the control lever/multifunction lever (giving a more sensitive start to the movement)
ComfortView™ operator environment
ComfortView cabs feature a modern, automotive-style instrument panel as base equipment. The instrument pod has two large analog dials for engine and tractor speed, as well as two smaller dials that display fuel level, DEF level, and coolant temperature. The steering column and dash are adjustable to suit the operator's needs. The column tilts toward the operator and a lever on the left-hand side allows for the column to telescope out to the desired level.
A dimming mode automatically reduces the brightness of the instrument illumination when the tractor lights are used.
STEERING COLUMN CONTROL PANEL
Instrumentation control panel
The instrumentation panel has a row of information and warning lights across the bottom to monitor all important tractor functions. A three-stage warning system first gives information, then gives warnings, and finally, gives a stop alarm to prevent damage from occurring in the event of a component malfunction. An integrated power take-off (PTO) over-speed warning is incorporated into the diagnostics to ensure proper operation.
RIGHT-HAND CONSOLE CONTROLS
The right-hand control console is angled for operator comfort and ease of operation. The design of the right-hand console is controlled by the type of SCVs chosen.
Mechanically actuated valves are controlled by traditional levers, while electronically actuated valves are controlled by fingertip paddle pods. Controls for the ComfortView cab are grouped by function on the right-hand console.
The modular console panel provides individual access to hand throttle, transmission controls, MFWD switch (if equipped), hitch command console, load/draft control, SCV, and PTO controls.
The console is also the location of the CommandCenter. The CommandCenter allows the operator to customize important tractor functions.
This option requires a PowrQuad™ or AutoQuad™ transmission.
- Ergonomic placement of controls to match arm movements
- Integrated hitch control module with draft wheel
