Deutz-Fahr 5100 Making all the Right Moves


Featuring a four cylinder, 100hp Deutz engine, that in turn, is mated to a wet clutch/powershift transmission with 45 forward and 45 reverse speeds, the nimble tractor is narrower than the Japanese tractor it replaced and features a 60 degree turning angle, making it more manoeuvrable and earning its keep powering a sprayer, fertiliser spreader and a heavy-duty three metre mulcher that deals with prunings.

How did we ever manage without GPS


It wasn't many years ago that farmers would ask, 'Why do I need a GPS system?' Today the question is much more likely to be, 'Why would you bother buying a tractor that is not fitted with GPS?'

Deutz-Fahr among the leeks


The Leek Division, based in Hastings, now covers 14ha and produces 1.2 million leeks annually, for export to the Japanese market. A key part of the operation falls to a Deutz-Fahr 5105.G tractor that arrived on the farm nine months ago and quickly become a firm favourite with the team.

Deutz definitely makes the grade


In the 38 years Doug Haigh has owned and developed his coastal Taranaki dairy farm he has learnt a thing or two about finding machinery that is up to the task. He reckons he has found tractors that definitely make the grade; his two 5 series Deutz-Fahr tractors.

The move to Deutz-Fahr


Back in June 2018, local Power Farming dealer Capital Tractors delivered a new powerhouse for the operation. A Deutz-Fahr F320, a brand new four-wheel drive tractor to replace an ageing 2WD tractor that had been at the property for many years.

5G gets a refresh


Deutz-Fahr 5G series tractors have recently been updated. This move broadly synchronises the specification of the two models which will be joined by a third, more powerful tractor by the end of the year.
