In the design of the Agrofarm G, DEUTZ-FAHR focused on practicality and real-world capability, two of the core values of the philosophy of the German multinational and cornerstones of its technological supremacy in the agricultural machinery sector. Consisting of two models - the 410 and 430, with engine powers of 88 hp (65 kW) and 102 hp (75 kW) respectively - the new Agrofarm G series has been conceived for applications in the open field, jobs such as hay-making, and transporting loads. These tractors are generously equipped for unparalleled practicality, and are offered as LS (with synchronised mechanical reverse shuttle) or GS (with hydraulic power shuttle) variants.
A 100% agricultural engine
SDF 1.000 WTI series four-cylinder, turbo-intercooled, liquid cooled diesel engines are Tier IIIA compliant and combine ready power delivery right from the bottom of the rev range and superior fuel economy with extraordinarily compact dimensions.
These engines also feature an electronic governor with a programmable engine speed memory, a state of the art, high performance injection system, HRT hydraulic tappets and a viscostatic fan: technologically advanced solutions which work in conjunction with one another to maximise engine efficiency and minimise emissions.
SDF engines produce generous levels of torque, which is already available even at low engine speeds: in both models, maximum torque is continuously available from just 1400 rpm all way to 1800 rpm, meaning the driver has to perform less gear shifts and can concentrate fully on the job in hand.
The excellent pull-away torque of these engines ensures smooth starts even with heavy loads and on steep gradients.
In keeping with DEUTZ-FAHR's renowned commitment to the environment, these engines are fully compatible with diesel fuels containing any proportion of biodiesel up to 100%.
Highly modular transmission configurations for extreme versatility.
The Agrofarm G is offered with three different basic transmission configurations: a synchromesh gearbox with fifteen forward/reverse speeds (or twenty forward/reverse speeds with supercreeper gear); a two stage (Hi-Lo) Powershift gearbox with thirty forward/reverse speeds (or forty forward/reverse speeds with supercreeper gear); or, for the Agrofarm 430 G GS, an Overspeed transmission (for a top speed of 40 Km/h at engine economy speed) with two-speed Powershift gearbox, for forty forward/reverse speeds.
The latter variant has been recently revised and offers five gears over four ranges (including a supercreeper range) and a mechanical or hydraulic reverse shuttle, for twenty forward and reverse speeds (or forty with Hi-Lo gearbox), covering a wide spectrum of ratios to cater ideally for any job. This transmission gives the tractor a range of speeds from 540 m/h to 50 Km/h (or an electronically limited 40 Km/h where required by law). The maximum road speed is reached at lower engine speeds, reducing both fuel consumption and noise, while the driver has an impressive choice of fifteen speeds within the speed range used in the majority of applications (from 4 to 15 Km/h approx.).
The Powershuttle hydraulic reverse shuttle on GS versions has five configurable settings, allowing the driver to adjust the responsiveness of the system during direction changes as desired.
The right PTO for every job.
All Agrofarm G tractors offer the two standard PTO speeds (540 and 1000 rpm), while the 540ECO and 1000ECO speed modes are also available as an option for even greater versatility.
The desired speed mode may be preselected and activated electrohydraulically directly from the cab. Alternatively, the PTO may also be activated from remote control buttons situated on the rear mudguards.
DEUTZ-FAHR also offers an optional synchronised PTO with an additional independent output shaft, which may be used to power driven axle trailers.
To protect implements and the transmission, the PTO clutch engages smoothly and gradually in all conditions.
Agrofarm G also delivers outstanding performance with front-mounted implements. The integrated front three-point linkage has an impressive maximum lift capacity of 2000 Kg and comes complete with a 1000 rpm front PTO.
A multifunction system to cater for every possible need.
Just like any self-respecting mid-power tractor, the Agrofarm G boasts a highly versatile hydraulic system capable of tackling a wide range of applications: with a 56 l/min main pump and a separate hydraulic circuit for the steering system. Agrofarm G tractors are equippable with up to four hydraulic distributors (to a total of eight ways); the first three distributors are controlled from specific levers, while the fourth (with optional flow regulator) is electrohydraulically controlled. The hydraulic connectors are easily accessible and can be connected without difficulty even if the lines are pressurised. Reflecting the commitment of DEUTZ-FAHR to protecting the environment, all the hydraulic connectors are equipped with oil collection containers to recover any oil escaping when coupling or uncoupling connections.
The rear lift is mechanically controlled as standard, or (as an option for 430 G models), electronically controlled. The electronic lift control system is particularly effective for applications where precise implement control is needed.
These tractors are equipped with seriously powerful rear lifts as standard, Standard lift capacities for the 410G and 430G are, respectively, 4300 and 5300 Kg, while 430G versions with the electronic lift have a maximum capacity of 6600 Kg. The optional front lift has a maximum load capacity of 2000 Kg.
Innovation at the service of safety.
Available as both 2WD and 4WD variants, Agrofarm G tractors are equipped with independent wet disc brakes on both the front and rear axles.
These extremely reliable, resilient brakes require no special maintenance and ensure superlative safety even when operating at high speeds.
The integral braking system on Agrofarm G tractors makes automatic dual traction engagement under braking unnecessary, for immediately responsive, dependable stopping power even when steering.
The version of the 430G GS with Overspeed transmission (with forty forward/reverse speeds) also features the innovative hydraulically operated Park Brake system.
Total brake control even when towing trailers: as well as pneumatic brake systems, these tractors are also available with hydraulic braking systems compliant with a wide variety of international type approval standards.
A simple but comprehensively equipped driver area for unparalleled productivity.
Agrofarm G tractors feature a state of the art, spacious cab with a four-pillar structure conceived for superlative visibility and comfort.
These tractors are extremely compact, with limited overall height and extraordinary manoeuvrability. While the sloped, shaped engine cowl, the lack of B pillars, extensive glazing and (optional) panoramic roof ensure superb all-round visibility.
Class-beating climate control in all working conditions. In addition to an effective ventilation and heating system, all Agrofarm G tractors may also be equipped with a powerful air conditioning system offered as an optional accessory.
The work area is conceived for maximum practicality and driver comfort: with wide-opening and sturdy slip-proof steps ensure easy access to the cab, and comfortable sprung seats (with air sprung suspension available as an option). In addition to offering an unrestricted view outside the tractor, the roomy cab interior also boasts clearly visible instrumentation and controls for complete control over the tractor in all conditions.
The instrumentation and controls are simple and comprehensive: all the controls are situated conveniently on the right hand side of the driver and are colour-coded for immediate identification and grouped by function.
The anti-glare display is clear and easy to read in all conditions and provides the driver with real-time information on the operating parameters of the tractor (tractor speed, PTO speed, working hours, total Km, etc.) in both analogue and digital format.
Designed with a highly modular configuration, Agrofarm G tractors are also available as platform variants with a ROPS roll frame, which considerably reduces the overall height of the tractor for working in locations with limited headroom.
