The White 6710 wheeled tractor is powered by a Cummins 6-cylinder diesel engine and is available in a 2-wheel drive configuration. Other features include a 3-point hitch, inboard wet disc brakes, and a 32x32 Quadrashift transmission. This tractor is rated at approximately 95 PTO horsepower (70.8 kW). The White 6710 will be used in farming and can accommodate a variety of agricultural implements such as plows, planters, loaders or harrows.

The applicable subheading for the White 6710 tractor will be 8701.90.1040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other tractors suitable for agricultural use with a PTO of 59.7 kW or more but less than 74.6 kW. The rate of duty will be free.
