    Had 6630 since 08, now 4000hrs, had a few engine probs, egr coolers etc, been ok since these parts were replaced. Its a tractor that needs to be warm to perform, then to me it pulls ok, just like the 130hp its meant to be. I only have a 7810 to compare it with, which is unfair. It pulls our 3m vaderstad well, but stuggles with a 3000l sprayer, esp on banks. It struggles unless fully topped up with oil to tip our 14t grain trailers also.

    If you want to buy a totally overated pile of congeled shite then buy a green and yellow one. If you actually pay for it yourself then dont listen to the salesmans bollucks and and save yourself many thousands by buying a pink one a red one or even a blue one which wil do as much if not more for a lot less unless, you have swallowed a bottle of green pills.

    They do get better when warm then...To be fair this one was cold when i took it up the road, and felt lifeless compared to our old 4 cylinder 10/20 series tractors!

    I have been concidering a 6630 to upgrade a 6600 but want one with autotrac and electric spools so limiting my search. I did get a price for a new 6130r which is a 4 cyclinder engine in a 6 size chassis but not had chance to try one and no one locally has either. From talking to users of the 66 models they like the 24x24 gearbox range which is now not available on any of the 6 cyclinder Rs.

    Got a 2009 6630 been a good motor pulls 3200lt trailed sprayer up and down hills comfortably after a bit of doctoring (know the risks!) on five furrow plough in autumn again pulls it fine! but she does drink fuel like its going out of fashion, agree likes to be warm before work, makes some strange rumbles before then! The big question is what to replace it with!

    Why play with a 66's gadgets to make it push out more power? sureley a 68/9 would be less hasstle, and a reduced risk of breakdowns due to putting too many eggs in the pudding so to speak? and maybe fuel consumption would be better too?

    Running an 08 6630 premium which has not been chipped. Handles Vaddy 3m system disc drill and 4.6m Unipress ok on our ground which is far from level.
    Average fuel consumption over all operations is 9.63l/hr. drilling with Vaddy or pulling unipress straight on ploughing has fuel consumption of 18-22 l/hr depending on ground.

    Re: john deere 6630

    I have a 2007 6630 premium from 6 months old. It has now done 4300 hours. Its had the head gasket done (known problem on early 30 series) and recently had the rubber fuel line replaced (another common problem). Puts up the odd error code now and then but it has not stopped it running! Had a problem with the electronic selection of 1000 speed pto. Main problem turned out to be a freyed wire under the cab.
    The fuel tank could do with being bigger as it won't do a full day with my 4m combi drill or mowing with a 3.2m trailed moco. We swaped our 6410 for a 6430 this spring and it can pull our 2nd 3.2m mower at the same speed as the 6630. Its only about 10hp less but a lighter machine which you do notice with road work.
    Overall I am happy with the 6630 and like it a lot more than the 6600 it replaced, especially in the power derpartment

    i can only speak of my own experience i have had ford 40 series and tm s, jcb fastracks valtra s, mcCormicks and deutz, before them i ran john deere 6000 then 6010 series. i have since had 5, 30 series. one 6930 three 6830 and a 6630 some power quad and rest autopower we swap them at about 5000hrs the last two we swaped just one had a speed sensor on pto. the three we run now have been spot on they are 20 months old with between 3300 and 4000hrs on them. one has had a heat shield crack on exhaust that is only fault we have had. the 6630 we have does all we ask of it ploughs with 5 furrow plough, 3m power harrow, hauls 12 ton trailers no problem, drives doda hd and spends summer on four rotor rake.

    I was considering a 6930 but with all the talk of them being an alcoholic im beginning to change my mind, Im now beginning to lean towards a late on 6920s instead, less to go wrong I would think.. An 06 model would be nice, If you could get the 30 series cab suspension on the 20 series it would be a great job........

    you can add another 5-6l/hr on that when it is working hard plough 25/30 acres a day drill 50 to 60 acres a day best to date 70acres have to have a midday fill of jungle juice

    6430 here (2007).

    Had a 6400 before that.

    Not overly impressed after 3000 hours.

    The thirty range series be renamed as the thirsty series.

    Main clutch pack casing spilt before 1000 hours (replaced under warranty). Various engine coolant seals leaked. One rear wheel has recurrng rust spots breaking through. 1000rpm pto controller recently replaced.

    Burns 25L/hr at full whack (55kph), ploughs 19-20 acres on its 180L tank (4 furrow variwidth + trailed press)

    Nice tractor to drive and also fiitted with 653 JD loader. Only comparing it to the legendary 6400 so not a wide ranging comparison I guess.

    If it were me I would choose a 68/69, purely because they make a better draft tractor and are capable of maximising the larger horsepower they have.

    You are right about choosing the later 6920s, over a 30series, there is far less to go wrong, and RBM had a low houred one recently for a shade above £30k, quite cheap as it only had 1200hrs???

    As for the cab suspension, for me there is not a lot of difference, I find the R -series is the only one with major improvement in this area.

    we have run 6000 6010s 6020(shit) and 6030 we have 6630s 6930s now to be far i think the last 30s are nearly as good as the old 10series hold money well reliable good al round tractors all are auto power bar one wich is power quad diesel consumption well on standard size tank can still do same work as i could we old 6810 i think people look at the command centre to much its not accurate

    Can't get mine to drink that much. Highest fuel use recorded on a tank full is 22.51l/hr which was pulling the Vaddy on our steepest ground. 60 acres drilling in a day not a problem here but agree that on long days the fuel tank isn't big enough.
