Zaragoza, February 14th, 2012; Powerful, reliable and economical; these are the hallmarks of the new Agrotron L 730 tractor in the 200 + hp class. Designed for heavy duty applications, the Agrotron L 730 is the ideal tractor for medium-large farms and contracting businesses.
The Agrotron L, equipped with the Deutz Common-Rail (DCR) 6-cylinder turbodiesel engine, meets all the latest emissions standards due to its innovative high-pressure fuel injection system with its 7-hole injector nozzles and electronic engine control. With a maximum power of 220 hp/162 kW, a displacement of 7146 cc, a high constant torque speed range and low fuel consumption, this engine is an example of the innovative DEUTZ engine design which is also able to run on biodiesel (B100).
The FULL POWERSHIFT transmission offers three speed ranges (creep, work and transport) and up to 12 powershift gears. Gear changes can be effected manually by pressing the button on the PowerComS control lever or automatically using the Automatic Powershift function, which selects the optimal ratio according to the load conditions and engine speed. In total, there are 24 forward gears and 33 reverse gears available. The maximum speed of 50 km/h is attained at an engine speed of just 1750 rpm.
Other innovative features include the hydraulic Powershift, which comes as standard equipment, and the Comfortip headland management system, which allows the operator to program sequences of commands and functions for repetitive tasks. With the optional iMonitor, sequence programming is even easier and can also be performed manually.
The hydraulic system has also been uprated in line with the increased power. The Agrotron L 730 is equipped with a Load-Sensing hydraulic system with a maximum capacity of 130 l/min and up to seven electrically controlled spools (five rear, two front). Furthermore, Agrotron L has been designed with DEUTZ-FAHR's DRP traction geometry, which is a system that takes into account the weight distribution, the geometry of the linkage and the tractor's centre of gravity in order to optimise traction even under the toughest conditions.
The new DEUTZ-FAHR Agrotron L 730 also presents a number of other safety and comfort features. These include the POWERBRAKE, a braking system that is also used on saloon cars: this in effect comprises a servo brake which affords optimal braking force with even just a light touch on the brake pedal, and the Electronic Parking Brake (EPB) which guarantees maximum safety when stopping or parking the tractor even on slopes.
In terms of comfort, the new S Class cab offers: pneumatic cab suspension, optimum sound insulation for reduced noise levels; maximum visibility thanks to a glass area of 6.5 m2 and highvisibility roof for comfortable working. The cab interior has also been completely redesigned.
Finally, the L series is equipped as standard with the PowerComS control system and the optional iMonitor, both of which are also available on the other models in the Agrotron range, which continues to be the sector leader.
