6 Series RC-Shift

Match your efficiency demands

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 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 an 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.




The highlights:

  • Fully automatic modulated gear shifting
  • 3 driving modes
  • 50 ECO and 50 SuperECO Km/h
  • Fine stepped multi-speed-transmission (5 robotised speeds x 6 Powershift speeds)
  • Overlapping of min. 2 Powershift speeds
  • Only 18% speed shift to the next gear
  • 17 gears in the main working speed range
  • 42" tyre option (from model 6175)

The new RC shift transmission ensures extremely comfortable, efficient and fully automated gear changes. Three driving modes can be selected:

  1. Manual: user selects range and Powershift speeds
  2. Semi-auto: user selects range and the system selects Powershift speeds automatically (field operations)
  3. Full-auto: system selects range and Powershift speeds automatically (road operations)

To ensure fuel-efficient driving during transport work, maximum speeds of 50 Km/h, 50ECO Km/h and 50 SuperECO Km/h, are available with an overdrive performance of 50 km/h at 1447 rpm (according to market regulation), Speed Matching to select the right gear for the application is fitted as standard. Fully integrated, electronic engine and transmission management ensures precise performance as well as improved functionality.




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 significantly 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 console or armrest in the cab.





Hydraulic System


The attachment points of the new 6 Series are available with a wide range of feature options. For 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 of up to 10.000 kg. The models with the MaxiVision 2 cab have all the hydraulic inputs proportionally controlled, for 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 the 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.




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.





In general, the higher the driving and operating comfort, the more productive the work. And the more relaxed the work, the better the results. For this reason, all 6 Series models offer first-class cabin comfort. Unique in the market: You can choose from a multitude of technology, equipment, specification and comfort variants. It's completely up to you. Based on the intended purpose of the tractor, on the driver's demands - there is a solution for all budgets. Whatever the requirements, the new 6 Series has you on the right track. MaxiVision and MaxiVision 2 cabs with different operating comfort levels and technological solutions, from simple mechanical manual controls to the most advanced electronic joystick. You can choose between three escape hatch options – a simple green sliding roof, a glass roof with UV absorption or the FOPS safety version for optimal views while using the front loader. Whatever you choose, the new 6 Series will meet your personal demands.
