DEUTZ-FAHR TRACTORS AUSTRALIA: GERMAN ENGINEERING AT ITS BEST

Agrotron M Series

The new Agrotron  range is the culmination of the rich experience of more than 80 years of major technological leadership in the agricultural machinery industry. Here is a tractor series that is one of the most comprehensive and modern on the market.

The panoramic view concept, the styling and the spacious cab of the Agrotron M is unmistakable. The Agrotron M sets standards in tractor design and ensures its owner productivity, value stability and profit.

 

Engine

Powerful, economic and environmentally friendly

Many can construct engines. But the real task is to build strong and efficient engines which comply with the effective emission standards and still set their own trend. The DEUTZ engine philosophy comes down to power, economy and environmentally friendliness

We develop for agriculture

DEUTZ-FAHR uses a whole host of intelligent technologies for this, aimed at increasing performance, lowering fuel consumption and reducing harmful emissions. This bio diesel initiative is only one of several forward-looking projects. Particularly, the changing applications in agriculture require extraordinary knowhow and long time experience in engine construction. But there is one thing all those applications have in common: power has to be available when it's needed. And the consumption has to be reduced at the same time. Although this sounds paradoxical, the engineers at DEUTZFAHR have managed to achieve it with the innovative DPC (DEUTZ-FAHR Power Control). By combining the electronic engine control (EMC) and the DEUTZ Common-Rail-Technology, a complex but very efficient engine control system has been developed.

Powerful, strong, efficient

The 6 cylinder high-tech DEUTZ turbo diesel engines in the Agrotron M come with innovative DEUTZ Common-Rail Technology (DCR) as standard. And thanks to the DPC the engines deliver constant power, high overpower and maximum torque. The driver can therefore relax while working with minimal gearshift changes because the engine offers sufficient reserves of power, good elasticity values and reduced fuel consumption at all times. At the top speed of 50 km/h the engine only reaches a speed of 2,100 rpm and at 40 km/h it is just 1,680 rpm. That saves fuel and protects the driver's ears.

Reducing emissions and the consumption = Protecting the environment

The four-valve models are equipped with an external exhaust gas recirculation as standard. This reduces consumption and exhaust emissions. Possible noise sources were already excluded at the design stage of the engines, because noises that don't occur don't require insulation. For example, a rigid, ribbed crank housing, soft combustion thanks to 7-hole injection nozzles, reliable waste gate turbochargers, double casing silencers and a flexible intake and exhaust pipe mounting system reduce noise where it arises.

Transmission

In the Agrotron we use the reliable and track-proven zf 7200 series transmission. the fully synchronised transmission comprises three main components: 4-stage powershift, 6-stage main transmission with wet multi-plate clutch and 4-speed creeper gear (optional) group.

Due to the position of the large-dimensioned wet multi-plate clutch, between the main and Powershift transmission, wear on the clutch and the effort needed for gear shifting are both considerably reduced. This results in smooth and fluid shifting with maximum clutch reliability. The clutch can either be controlled using the pedal or a knob on the gearshift lever. Voith hydrodamp vibration absorbers enhance smooth starting and reduce the load peaks when the Powershift stages are actuated.

The Powershift allows all four gears to be selected electro-hydraulically at the touch of a button on the armrest or on the PowerCom S control lever without pressing the clutch. The Powershift settings automatically adjust to the speed when the gear is changed (SpeedMatching).

With the shuttle transmission it is possible to pull off from a stationary position or change the direction of travel (reverse/forwards) without actuating the clutch. The Powershuttle lever, with the positions forwards, neutral and reverse is located on the left within easy reach below the steering wheel. The engaged speed and Powershift stage are retained when the direction is changed. The Powershuttle is of particular advantage when working on the headland or with the front loader, as the driver's right hand is free to operate other function controls.

Cabin

Relaxed and productive work requires room for movement and a clear arrangement of all operating elements. With the spacious panorama cab DEUTZ-FAHR has created a real trendsetter that, in addition to the unique all-round view, provides all creature-comforts, making work a real pleasure.

Simple and safe anti-slip, galvanised steps and wide-angle door opening range ensure safe mounting and dismounting. The interior exudes an atmosphere of comfort and a feeling of spaciousness that once more sets standards in tractor design. The orthopaedic, low-frequency seat and the optional pneumatic cab suspension are only two of the important design features of the modern cab.

Mechanical cab suspension

With the mechanical cab suspension the vibration stress for the driver is reduced by one third and the vibration and jolting which negatively affects the driver's health is also reduced.

Instructor's seat

The standard, folding instructor's seat is perfectly integrated into the cab entrance, a safety bar, handle and child lock in the door make this seat also extremely safe. An integrated compartment in the seat backrest provides room for documents.

Noise silencing

With its low interior noise level the Agrotron is one of the quietest tractors in its class. This is achieved with basic design features such as engines with low noise emission and consistent exclusion of noise-emitting and noise-transferring components from the cab. An additional insulating wall between the engine compartment and the single-cell, full-body cab considerably improves noise insulation.

Impressive air conditioning

The powerful 4-stage heating and ventilation fan of the Agrotron cab has a capacity of up to 580 m3 / h and ensures a constant and pleasant working atmosphere in next to no time.

Hydraulics

You can never have enough hydraulic power. With this in mind the Agrotron M can be optionally fitted with a load-sensing hydraulic system

The load-sensing hydraulic system effortlessly delivers variable output (flow) to match the changing demands of any implement thus ensuring maximum output, but minimal horsepower demand.

The system runs with an axial piston variable displacement pump that is controlled by the respective implement. When the consumer draws off oil, the system pressure drops and only then does the variable displacement pump instantly provide more oil so that the pressure required by the consumers is maintained. The consumer with the highest pressure requirements determines the current system pressure. The delivery rate may be up to 120 l / min; the removable oil volume is 40 litres.

Large-dimension lift cylinders provide a tremendous lifting force of up to 9.2 t. Fast, sure and safe implement coupling and uncoupling is also possible by additionally actuating the powerlift buttons on the rear mudguard. The coupling of heavy implements is easier with Cat. II / II fast couplers.
