Redesigned to improve compatibility
6120M Tractor with 600R Loader
The 600R Loader has been redesigned to work effortlessly with the model year 2020 6110M and 6120M Tractors. The 6110M and 6120M Tractors are equipped with a sloped hood to improve operator visibility. In cadence with this updated tractor design, the 600R Loader features curved booms, making an ideal tractor-loader combination. This combination also includes a 22.9-cm (9-in.) reduction in overall machine and loader length, improving forward visibility by over 2.1 m (7 ft). Pairing the model year 2020 6110M or 6120M Tractor with the 600R Loader allows visibility directly to the loader attachment, providing more efficient performance with any loader application.
Panoramic roof for increased visibility

As the lift height of the R-Series Loaders increases, the panoramic roof inside of the 6M Tractor cab provides additional visibility to the entire lift-cycle of the loader. The 600R Loader has a lift height up to 391.2 cm (154 in.), allowing an operator to stack three bales. Through the larger panoramic roof of the 6M Tractor, tasks such as stacking bales can be done quickly and efficiently.
Light-emitting diode (LED) light option for variable operating conditions

To further enhance visibility, the 600R Loader has the option to include LED lights. With LED lights mounted onto each side of the loader boom, performing loader applications in variable operating conditions is made easier. Pairing the loader LED light option with an LED light package on the 6110M or 6120M Tractor will provide unmatched visibility to enhance operator experience during any task.
Single-point hydraulic connection on the 600R Loader
The R-Series Loaders feature a single-point hydraulic connection that saves the operator time when attaching or detaching the loader. This feature also incorporates the connection point for any electrical needs as well as the hydraulic lockout valve. With all hydraulic and electrical connections in one location, installation is quickly completed with the pull of a handle.
NOTE: Before disconnecting the hydraulic connection between the loader and the tractor, it is necessary to release the hydraulic pressure.

R-Series Loaders are even easier to attach and detach due to the automatic mast latch system. This feature provides efficiency to operations that require frequent loader parking. The automatic mast latch system is a mechanical lever that allows operators to remove or attach the loader with one trip out of the cab. The ease and convenience provided by the automatic mast latch system provides improvement to operation uptime.

Hydraulic shut-off valve on R-Series Loader
The R-Series Loaders come equipped with a hydraulic shut-off valve to improve serviceability. When conducting brief service to the loader, close the hydraulic shut-off valve to ensure the loader does not move while operating under the equipment. This feature promotes a safe way to conduct brief maintenance without having to use support stands or removing the loader completely.
600R Loader working with 6120M Tractor
The MSL R-Series Loaders utilize a false rod cylinder to improve bucket performance. This bucket cylinder is designed with a smaller displacement of oil required on the head end of the cylinder, which allows the cylinder to function more quickly, decreasing operation cycle time. With the false rod cylinder design, loader applications can work more quickly and efficiently.

The loader harness is now factory installed on all 620R, 640R, 660R and 680R Loaders. This unlocks the full potential of loader options and makes field installation a breeze. This harness connects one, two, or all three field options: loader lights, loader suspension (LSS) and Hydraulic Implement Unlock [HIU].
The R-Series Loaders provide several options to enhance operator experience and productivity in the field. Individual options can be ordered to fit an operation’s unique set of needs. Some of the available loader options include:
- Loader lights for enhanced visibility
- Hydraulic Implement Unlock [HIU] improves operator efficiencies
- Loader suspension system for a smoother ride
Loader lights for enhanced visibility
600R Loader with light-emitting diode (LED) lights
Daylight hours change but the work does not. To enhance visibility, LED lights are on each side of the loader boom and assist in a various low-light loader applications. Installation time is improved with the loader harness installed and ready for this kit. To further improve installation time by ordering tractor options to have the tractor include the loader light switch and harness installed to the multicoupler with loader ready packages.

HIU is great time-saving feature that is easy to use from the comfort of the cab. The in-cab switch activates stored oil and pushes the unlock handle on the carrier. To reconnect, simply align the carrier, connect to the implement as normal, and the carrier automatically relocks when implement is connected. Operators can still use the manual handle to unlock the carrier if they are already out of the cab. There is no longer a need to go up and down from the tractor just to change implements. HIU can save time if multiple implement changes are part of normal operations. The HIU option has no maintenance and is easy to install during pre-delivery. Loader field kit installation time is improved with the loader harness installed and ready.
NOTE: If implements have hydraulic functions, then the hose connection still needs to be unhooked by hand (example, a grapple bucket).
Loader Suspension System (LSS)
The LSS improves operator comfort and loader efficiency during loader operation. This system is easily activated by the operator from the joystick. When activated, the LSS absorbs the shock, providing a smoother ride in the cab as well as reducing material loss from the bucket. Installation time is improved with the loader harness installed. This kit is nicely packaged within the torque tube of the loader frame, staying clear of any debris and damage.
