Success is achieved by enterprises that are able to tackle every task throughout the season using the lowest possible amount of resources and being effective with the time available. Equally, every penny counts when it comes to reducing production costs. DEUTZ-FAHR has developed the new 7 Series for such businesses. The two new 7 Series models deliver up to 246 HP and stand out for a range of trademark German characteristics: high quality, high precision and reliability combined with cutting-edge technology in terms of both cost-effectiveness and comfort.
The 7 Series represents the culmination of highly innovative and intelligent tractor technology manufactured at our new facility in Lauingen, Germany, offering the exceptional comfort of the MaxiVision 2 cab, intuitive controls, a newly designed armrest, state-of-the-art precision farming systems, highly efficient engine and transmission technology, innovative axles and brakes which ensure optimal driving comfort and maximum safety. Furthermore, the hydraulic systems and lift capacity both front and rear, compliment the overall 7 Series specification making this tractor the ideal partner for increasing the productivity of professional contractors and agricultural businesses – both in the field and on the road.
STAGE 4 SIX CYLINDER ENGINES: POWERED BY EFFICIENCY
The new 7 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 has a higher torque at lower rpms. At the same time, consumption of fuel and AdBlue has been reduced by 5 %, compared to the previous generation. The revised exhaust system features SCR after treatment and an additional, passive DPF (diesel particulate filter). DPF offers three advantages compared to the usual active filters: no fuel injection enters the filter, less heat is generated around the unit and the filter regenerates much more quickly. This saves fuel and money while conforming to all international emission standards.
The efficiency of the engine is supported by Electronic Visco fan and the redesigned, compact and high-performance cooling system. The patented cooling system can be opened completely, which makes servicing much more straightforward. A pre-cleaning system on the air intake slots prevents dirt from entering the air filter, making a substantial difference to service costs. The Deutz 6.1 Stage 4 (Tier4 Final) engine – modern technology made in Germany – is synonymous with the highest levels of know-how and efficiency, allowing you to achieve maximum productivity.
TTV TRANSMISSION. TURN POWER INTO TRACTION
The new 7 Series is fitted with state-of-the-art electronically controlled continuously variable TTV transmission technology. It is a solid concept that has been tried and tested over the years, now with new software for even better performance. DEUTZ-FAHR is the only manufacturer that offers a 60 Km/h tractor in such a compact design. All final speeds of 40 Km/h, 50 Km/h or 60 Km/h can be reached at a reduced engine speed, which is extremely fuel efficient. Overall, the speed range extends from 0.2 Km/h to 60 Km/h. For field work, the TTV transmission system operates most efficiently at all speeds.
The highly comfortable TTV transmission is extremely efficient thanks to its four mechanical stages, which change automatically. Engine and transmission management are fully integrated, providing a comfortable automatic system for mechanical range shifting. Up to four cruise speeds can be stored in order to optimise work processes. A new trailer stretch mode increases driving safety on hilly terrain. Every single detail of the TTV transmission system has been designed to maximise the productivity of the 7 Series.
WORKING WITH ALL IMPLEMENTS IN ANY SITUATION
The productivity of a tractor depends directly on the equipment it can drive. The aim is to reduce the amount of distance travelled through increasingly large and heavy attachment combinations. This is where the 7 Series clearly demonstrates its strength. With three PTO speeds (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 the ECO power take-off sysytems, fuel consumption is significantly reduced. All hydraulic and PTO functions can be easily set and controlled from the armrest in the cab. An external control of hydraulics, rear lift and PTO from both sides of the tractor is also possible.
LIFT UP YOUR PRODUCTIVITY
The new 7 Series provides attachment area technology that was previously available only in higher power classes. The rear attachment area features up to five hydraulic control valves, while the front attachment area has two. The absolute highlight is that all valves are proportionally controlled.
The new hydraulic system of the 7 Series allows a position-controlled front linkage to be equipped. Until now, such advanced technology was only available on the 9 Series. The lifting capacity is up to 5480 kg, an impressive figure. Additionally, equipment is positioned much closer to the tractor with the newly integrated front linkage concept, which substantially enhances lifting capacity. The front mounting area also features an integrated ISOBUS socket. The hydraulic pump delivers an output of 120 L/min as standard or 160 L/min on request. The load sensing system is included as standard. A separate pump supplies the steering so that the working hydraulic system is not compromised. The rear lifting capacity is 10000 kg.
FOR UNIQUE SAFETY IN THIS TRACTOR CLASS
Productivity needs maximum vehicle control - both in the field and on the road. At top speed as well as on challenging ground conditions and with the heaviest equipment. The 7 Series gives you a uniquely valuable sensation: safety in every situation.
The new heavy duty front axle with suspension and the braking system of the 7 Series are unique in this tractor class. The intelligent and adaptive suspension system give the new 7 Series maximum stability – both during heavy tillage operations and when driving loads. The innovative suspension concept stabilises the tractor during all transport operations and boosts driving safety. In order to ensure better handling on uneven ground, the dampers are mounted on the front side of the axle.
The 7 Series is the only standard tractor that is fitted with high performance dry disc brakes on the front axle. The additional Booster brake system ensures maximum braking performance with the lightest pedal pressure. No other standard tractor offers a heavy duty front axle, dry disc brakes combined with the booster brake system and improved safety.
ERGONOMIC OPERATION. MAXIMISING DRIVER'S COMFORT
The unique features offered by MaxiVision 2 cab can be seen inside and also from outside. When it comes to ease of use and ergonomics, the new 7 Series takes care of work for the driver to the extent permitted by current technology. The new 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. In order to allow precise, stress-free work in all lighting conditions, the tractor can be fitted with an optional 40.000 lumen LED package with four working headlights. The interior is designed for the driver's comfort - reduced engine noise, vibrations and heat due to the cab and engine hood being separated. The new hood encapsulates the latest, highly contemporary look of the DEUTZ-FAHR tractor family, while its compact design also ensures outstanding forward visibility. The best possible view of rear attachments is guaranteed by the rearward position of the cab.
Other features that reduce stress are the bright, welcoming colours of the interior, the large windows and a sunroof, available in three designs: an easy-to-open green roof, a glass roof with 84% UV radiation absorption and a FOPS safety version for optimal visibility during front loader operation. The air conditioning system – with automatic functions – provides the largest number of air outlet openings in this tractor class guaranteeing uniform air distribution like no other model. Every detail of the MaxiVision 2 cab has been designed to help the driver work for long periods without stress, thus achieving maximum productivity.
The newly designed armrest makes the 7 Series even more relaxing and more intuitive to operate. All routine functions can be automated. Simply pre-select the desired basic settings and activate them at any time with a tap on the screen. The new, highly ergonomic joystick on the armrest controls everything from driving speed, direction of travel and cruise control selection to the ComfortTip system, lift controls and front lift controls. It is an intuitive system that requires no change of hand position and no more than a moments thought to operate. All of the controls are clearly marked with colours and are logically arranged according to their frequency of use. The driver has complete control over the new 7 Series at all times and can work for very long periods at a highly productive rate.
