For efficient work with utility tractors, working, driving and operating comfort are just as important as versatility. Arable farms, dairy farms, livestock farms and municipal applications – the range of work is increasingly varied, and the working day increasingly long. Only if a utility tractor meets every aspect of the working profile can it be commercially successful. Only if the level of comfort is right will the performance and motivation of drivers remain high for a long time. DEUTZ-FAHR has developed the new 5C Series with this in mind. The highly comfortable cab of the new 5C Series is supported on the latest design of “Hydro Silent-Block” cabin suspension mounts. The gear shift lever has been redesigned as the gears are now easily selected using a Bowden cable design. An up to 40% reduction in cab noise and vibrations is the result. At the same time, the new light package guarantees optimal vision during poor visibility. Whatever demands you have of a utility tractor, DEUTZ-FAHR can meet them with state-of-the-art technology, a wide range of configuration options and an extraordinary level of comfort. At DEUTZ-FAHR you will find the largest selection of utility tractor models.
The new engine powering the 5C Series is the Deutz TCD 3.6 L04, a 3,620 cm³ four-cylinder unit bristling with state of the art technology which delivers extraordinary performance, reliability and durability. The innovative technology employed include electronically controlled Common Rail injection, a turbocharger with intercooler and wastegate valve, and a proportional viscostatic fan. This impressive package oftechnical solutions has made it possible to keep specific fuel consumption down to a record-breaking 210 g/kWh. Compliance with Tier 4i emissions regulations is ensured by an electronically controlled, liquid cooled external exhaust gas recirculation system (EGR) and a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC). The DOC (Diesel Oxidation Catalyst) installed above the engine catalyses the components of the exhaust gas on contact to transform them into substances that are harmless for the environment. As it does not function as a particulate filter, it does not produce wasteful exhaust back-pressure and does not require energy-costly active regeneration cycles. It needs no additives, such as AdBlue used in selective catalytic reduction systems (SCR), and is maintenance-free. It is also less bulky than an SCR system, making it better suited for installation on compact tractors. With a fully electronic engine governor, which means that the engine delivers only the power actually necessary to perform the specific, and a 150 litre fuel tank, these tractors have the mautonomy needed to work continuously throughout even the longest day. These engines are designed specifically for agricultural applications, as demonstrated by a torque curve which remains close to maximum torque from 1,200 to 1,900 rpm - the engine speed range used in the majority of agricultural applications - and a torque reserve of 32%. The power curve, on the other hand, is practically flat between 1,800 and 2,200 rpm, ensuring silky smooth operation even when performing particularly heavy-duty tasks.
When it comes to the transmission, the new 5C Series shows just how adaptable a utility tractor can be. For all variants, maximum efficiency is guaranteed by a highly efficient five-speed transmission with electrohydraulic reverse shuttle and up to four gear ranges (slow, fast, creep and super creep) with three Powershift speeds and 60 forward and reverse gears. Driving at 40 km/h ECO with a reduced engine speed goes without saying. Thanks to Powershift technology, engine speed can be increased or decreased under load simply by pressing a button on the gear shift lever without activating the clutch. The electrohydraulic reverse shuttle is equipped with two long-life wet multi-plate clutches. This makes it possible to change direction at speeds up to 13km/h even under load. Standard equipment includes Powershuttle and the convenient Stop&Go function for stopping and moving off without using the clutch.
Anyone who sits inside the new 5C Series will immediately notice that the new cab is the embodiment of comfort and peace. The design is similar to that of a comfortable car. Smooth curves, a bright, friendly atmosphere, controls within easy reach and clear visibility on all sides promote fast and efficient work. As in a comfortable car when you start the engine, you feel pure power and nothing else. Noise and vibrations remain outside. The cab is supported on the latest design of “Hydro Silent-Block” cabin suspension mounts that absorbs up to 40% more vibrations than the previous versions. At night or when visibility is poor due to adverse conditions, the light package with eight work lights (six in the roof and two on the side posts) plus two working headlights and two LED lights in the bonnet guarantees perfect illumination of the entire working area. Whatever tractor tasks need to be carried out, the modern and stylish cab motivates drivers to enjoy their daily workplace. Day after day.
