The new 7 Series has been developed by Deutz-Fahr with two models, 226 and 246 horsepower, at launch.
They are equipped with the new Deutz 6.1 engine not only meets Stage 4 (Tier 4 Final) emission standards, but also provides a greater torque reserve and starts with a larger torque, despite consuming 5% less fuel and AdBlue, compared to the previous T3b engine.
The continuously variable TTV transmission covers a speed range from 0.2 to 60 km/h and has been upgraded for superior performance with new software.
The top speed of 60 km/h is unique in its class. All top speeds of 40 km/h, 50 km/h and 60 km/h can be reached at a lower engine speed.
A unique feature in this new 7 series is the intelligent, adaptive front axle suspension system. This guarantees maximum stability and traction on the road pulling heavy loads, and in tillage work in the field.
The innovative anti-dive system ensures stability and safety during transport operations. The new 7 Series is the only standard tractor that is fitted with high-performance dry disc brakes on the front axle.
In combination with the booster brake system, this delivers maximum braking performance with the lightest pedal pressure.
The hydraulic technology come from Deutz-Fahr’s higher classes. There are up to five control valves at the rear and two at the front.
The highlight here is that all valves are proportionally controlled.
New features are the position- controlled front linkage with a lifting capacity of 5480 kg and the ISOBUS interface at the front. The rear lifting capacity is 10000 kg.
The new 7 Series also benefits from a style which has been developed and refined in collaboration with Italdesign Giugiaro.
Their clear and decisive lines for the hood, and their distinctive cab and generous use of high quality materials results in an aggressive yet user-friendly design which has become the hallmark of the latest developments in Deutz-Fahr tractor range.
