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 12 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, DEUTZ-FAHR has redefined the configurability concept.
The new 6 Series is equipped with a completely redesigned engine in terms of environmental impact and cost-effectiveness. The new Deutz 6.1 Stage 4 (Tier4 Final) engine is more responsive, offers higher reserve torque and starts with a higher torque and, at the same time, consumption of fuel and AdBlue has been reduced. The revised exhaust system features SCR exhaust after treatment and an additional, passive DPF (diesel particulate filter). DPF offers three advantages compared to the usual active filters: no fuel injection directly into the filter, less heat is generated around the unit and an efficient "heat-mode" strategy of the engine reduces the regeneration needs. This saves fuel and money while conforming to all international emission standards. On TTV models, the efficiency of the engine is also supported by Electronic Visco fan. The Deutz 6.1 Stage 4 (Tier4 Final) engine – modern technology Made in Germany – is synonymous with the highest levels of reliability and efficiency, allowing you to achieve the maximum from your work.
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.
With 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 offers, 5 robotised speeds gear plus 6 Powershift steps forward and 3 reverse, for a total number of speeds of 30 + 15 (with creeper: 54 + 27). A high speed and high pulling transmission.
Maximum comfort and high efficiency: it's the 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.
BEST PROSPECTS FOR YOUR WORK
With four PTO speeds 540/540ECO/1000/1000ECO at the rear and 1000 or 1000ECO at the front, all work can be carried out very efficiently. Thanks to the reduced engine speed characteristics, coupled with ECO power take-off technology, fuel consumption is siginificantly reduced. The proportionally controlled PTO prevents sharp start-ups and protects transmission components. The new InfoCentrePro provides clear, easily understandable information about hydraulic and PTO functions. All hydraulic and PTO functions can be easily set and controlled from the right consolle or armrest in the cab.
PREPARED FOR A WIDE RANGE OF APPLICATIONS
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.
NO COMPROMISE BETWEEN SAFETY AND DRIVING COMFORT
The new front axle with suspension and the braking system of the 6 Series are unique in this performance class. The front axle is now fitted with double-acting hydraulic cylinders and a longer stroke, significantly increasing the damping effect, which is electronically controlled. Depending on the brake intensity and driving speed, two suspension levels are activated – the AntiDive and AntiRise system, or the complete suspension system in the field and on the road; the suspension system can also be locked. The 6 Series TTV is the only standard tractor that is fitted with high performance dry disc brakes on the front axle (6205 and 6215 TTV), with the additional Booster brake system ensuring maximum braking performance with the lightest pedal pressure. No other standard tractor offers a front axle, dry disc brakes combined with the booster brake system.
TTV models are equipped with the EPB: the automatic parking brake system which acts on the rear brake discs. The EPB automatically disengages when the shuttle direction is activated and automatically engages when the driver leaves the seat. Moreover, TTV models can be equipped with the new exhaust engine brake, for 40 % more braking power, especially when driving downhill with heavy loads, this system prevents the service brakes from overheating. This increases safety and decreases service costs. The operation is comfortable, easy-to-use and reliable via an additional pedal that is controlling a butterfly valve. The braking performance is optimised automatically according to the pre-selected driving mode (Auto, Manual, PTO).
COUNTLESS CABIN COMFORT OPTIONS: THE CHOICE IS YOURS
