Deutz-Fahr launches new six and seven series tractors

Impressive modification and upgrades to the new DEUTZ-FAHR 6 and 7 Series range of tractors, put the company at the top of its game in performance, horsepower and comfort. Key features that dominate include transmission and suspension; an impressive front integrated linkage; new cab design, layout and controls arrangement with improved visibility.

It is in the 6 Series offering where small to large scale farmers will benefit most from the new innovations, but for farmers with a range of crops as well as contractors it will still be a whole new experience running a multi-purpose 7 Series tractor in the 226hp and 246hp.

Upgraded 6 Series tractors boast a completely new transmission in the 156hp-226hp range: the Powershift models with manual transmission based on five mechanical gear speeds plus six Powershift forward and three reverse. New RCshift models feature a fully automatic transmission with five robotised gear speeds plus six Powershift forward and three reverse.

Driving comfort in the new 6 Series tractor is a whole new experience coming from a stepless transmission in the TTV models with speeds ranging from 0.2kmph to 40kmph or 50kmph at reduced engine speeds – therefore improving fuel efficiency too.

However, the continuously variable TTV transmission on the 7 Series tractors cover a speed range from 0.2kmph to 60kmph and has been upgraded for superior performance with new software. The top speed of 60kmph is unique in its class. All top speeds of 40kmph, 50kmph and 60kmph can be reached at a lower engine speed.

The new Deutz 6.1 engine meets Stage 4 (Tier 4 Final) emission standards, and provides a greater torque reserve and starts with a larger torque and improved fuel economy. Its new electronic Visco fan combined with the innovative cooling system increases efficiency. The new cooling group that is of aluminium construction can be fully opened, allowing easy maintenance and faster servicing.

A unique adaptive front axle suspension on both 6 and 7 Series models supports maximum stability during heavy draft operations and its innovative Anti-dive system ensures stability and safety during transport. Both are fitted with high performance dry disc brakes on the front axle. In combination with the Booster brake system, it guarantees maximum braking performance with the lightest pedal pressure.

Advancements to the hydraulics mean up to five proportionally controlled valves are now available in the rear (10000kg lifting capacity), and two in the front (5480kg lifting capacity) also with ISOBUS plug in.

A new style cab with all around improved visibility enhances operator comfort, ease of use and safety. A five-inch colour display provides the driver with a stream of data on the tractor’s operating conditions. A new armrest joystick provides excellent operator comfort. Noise levels are reduced due to the fact that the cab and engine hood are not connected.

The cab is equipped with both electro hydraulic spool valves (for TTV and RCshift models) and mechanical spool valves (for RCshift and Powershift models). For all models, the front lift and front loader integrated controls can be mechanical or electro-hydraulic.

The latest available precision farming system based on Agrosky are now available factory fitted on both 6 and 7 Series models, featuring the central monitoring control unit and 12-inch iMonitor 2 screen.
