The agricultural industry is highly diverse. Each individual enterprise has its own totally individual success strategy. Whether it’s a large, medium or small company, a contractor or a local authority, they all have one thing in common: they need to be successful. Accordingly, tractor technology needs to 100% match their working profile.
Ploughing, sowing, cultivating, transporting, harvesting crops, front loader work: each individual professional will decide how the tractor will be utilised, along with which specific features are required. DEUTZ-FAHR has developed the new 6 Series for this purpose: with 8 models ranging from 156 to 226 HP, two wheelbases, three transmission variants, two cabin types with different comfort levels and various other feature options, you can put together the best technology mix in this tractor class, and create your own, unique tractor. With the 6 Series E3, DEUTZ-FAHR has redefined the configurability concept.
The new 6 Series is powered by the new 6.1-litre Deutz TCD engines. Water-cooled 6- cylinder inline engines with turbocharging and charge air cooling, with 5hp (average) more than the previous Stage3B (T4i) range.
These engines have been uncompromisingly designed for use with the new Powershift/RCSHIFT/TTV transmissions.
The powerful DEUTZ Common Rail (DCR®) injection system and the electronic engine control with intelligent link to the drive management ensure optimum engine performance at low fuel consumption.
POWERSHIFT, RCSHIFT OR TTV: THE CHOICE OF TRANSMISSION TYPE IS YOURS.
What is the main area of focus for your tractor? Simple farmyard work, grassland work, heavy transporting, pulling heavy implements in the field or a mixture of all of these? Whatever the focus of your new 6 Series, it offers exactly the right transmission for any driver demand and any budget.
Powershift transmission: 5 mechanical gear speeds plus 6 Powershift steps forward and 3 reverse, the Powershift transmission offers 30 + 15 (with creeper: 54 + 27) total number of speeds for 40 or 50 Km/h maximum speed (according to the markets regulation) at reduced engine speeds. Fully automatic RCshift transmission: 5 robotised ranges plus 6 Powershift steps forward and 3 reverse, for a total number of speeds of 30 + 15 (with creeper: 54 + 27). This transmission can be driven in 4 modes;
1. Manual: the driver selects range and Powershift gear
2. Semi Auto: the driver selects the range and the system selects Powershift's speedsautomatically
3. Full Auto Field: the system selects the range and Powershift speeds automatically to optimise field operations
4. Full Auto Road: the system selects the range and Powershift speeds automatically to optimise transport applications
TTV transmission:This efficient and reliable system is capable of varying speed continuously, optimising engine power without unnecessary loading or fuel wastage, for easier and more productive work. These operating principles allow the TTV transmission to quickly provide the required driving speed, ensuring a smooth drive and advantages in terms of on-the-move comfort and safety, particularly when driving on roads.
All transmissions are easy to operate, simple to programme and easy to monitor via the on board displays. They each offer excellent efficiency, precision and effectiveness. However, what is unique about the new 6 Series is that you can choose the level of gear shift technology you want.
The attachment points of the new 6 Series are available with a wide range of feature options. For the hydraulics, you can choose between mechanical and electro-hydraulic controls, up to five hydraulic valves in the rear and two in the front, and a hydraulic pump output of up to 170 L/min, with a rear lifting capacity up to 10.000 kg. The models with the MaxiVision 2 cab have all the hydraulic inputs proportionally controlled, for a broader control of implements. A separate oil tank ensures an ample oil supply for the TTV models.
The main hydraulics are offered with a Load sensing system or an open centre constant flow pump. The new front linkage system of the 6 Series TTV range is equipped with a position control function, providing greater control across a broader range of implements. The new front support with new integrated front lift is designed to match the front suspension, this solution provides a compact layout for maximum steering capability, offering up to 5.480 kg lift with up to 2 dedicated front valves. The front mounting area also features an integrated ISOBUS terminal.
MAXIVISION AND MAXIVISION 2: EVERYTHING FOR RELAXED WORK
The unique features offered by MaxiVision and MaxiVision 2 can be seen from both inside and outside the cab. When it comes to ease of use and ergonomics, the new 6 Series caters for the operator by making best use of the technology available. The InfoCentrePro on the dashboard features a 5" colour display, providing the driver with a stream of data about the tractor's operating conditions. It offers maximum convenience in terms of settings and information. On TTV models there is an additional WorkDisplay fitted on the right pillar, performing real time working information. The interior provides a peaceful working environment with all engine noise, vibrations and heat reduced to a minimum as there is no connection between the cab and engine.
The new hood encapsulates the latest, highly contemporary look of the DEUTZ-FAHR tractor family, while its optimised design also ensures outstanding forward visibility. The best possible view of rear attachments is guaranteed by the rearward position of the cab. In order to allow precise, stress-free work in all lighting conditions, it can be fitted with an optional 40.000 lumen LED package with up to 16 working headlights. Other features that enhance comfort and functionality are the bright, color codes for the controls, the large windows and a new system to close the right door. The air conditioning system – with automatic functions – optimises the internal temperature, while the largest number of air outlet openings In this tractor class guarantee uniform air distribution like no other model. With the MaxiVision and MaxiVision 2 cabs, you can look forward to extremely comfortable and efficient work.
