DEUTZ-FAHR TRACTORS NEW ZEALAND: GERMAN ENGINEERING AT ITS BEST

Agrofarm 100 G GS CABIN

The AGROFARM 100 G GS Cabin tractor is designed to meet the multi-purpose tractor requirements within the 85 to 100 horsepower sector. The New AGROFARM series has an excellent power to weight ratio with a mechanically governed fuel efficient engine. This tractor is ideal for front end loader work with a dedicated forward/reverse electro hydraulic Power shuttle Gearbox.

The Agrofarm G Series provide the ideal answer to a wide variety of needs: offering productivity and versatility in the field, superior manoeuvrability for general farm tasks and speed for quick road transport applications. These tractors combine compact dimensions with comprehensive, high technology equipment to ensure outstanding comfort in all working conditions.

What makes this tractor so user friendly is the newly designed ergonomic workspace inside the spacious comfortable cabin. Wide opening full length doors allow easy entry into the cab; a high capacity air conditioner is also fitted to allow maximum operator comfort in the harsh New Zealand conditions that we are acclimatised too.

The agrofarm range is well renound for its safety when operating in hill country and its ability to climb. This is thanks to its core features which include a true 4 wheel independent braking system, front and rear 100% locking differential and its low centre of gravity.

The New Agrofarm series is the best all-rounder in class.

 

 

Engine

Work hard and save fuel.

DEUTZ FAHR tractors live up to their economic reputation. After all, modern farmers expect fuel-efficient, high-power engines. The new Agrofarm 100 G GS Cabin is powered by a water-cooled 4-cylinder 4litre, turbocharged diesel engine. This series boast a compact design, uniform power development and low fuel consumption. Conceived specifically for agricultural use, SDF engines are designed to produce power even at low engine speeds with superlative fuel economy. The extremely compact construction and highly effective cooling system of these engines mean that Agrofarm G tractors can operate without difficulty even in areas with extreme weather conditions. The modern high pressure injection system uses a single pump for each cylinder. This is a far more advanced solution than the rotary or in-line pumps used in conventional injection systems, and ensures superlative performance with extraordinary reliability. SDF engines also offer plenty of torque right on tap even at low engine speeds as the maximum torque is already available at just 1600 rpm

Fitted with mechanical engine control and a modern high-pressure Bosch individual injection system with injection pressures of up to 1.400 bar, they deliver efficient fuel utilization, enormous efficiency and excellent emissions values. And, thanks to the 150 litre fuel tank, the tractor is more than a match for long working days.

 

Transmission

The perfect choice to deliver power to the ground

For the New Zealand market a Powershift/ Powershuttle transmission is used in the Agrofarm 100 G GS Cabin. The 40X40 transmission has a 40Km/h road speed making it incredibly versatile. This transmission is broken down into four mechnical ranges (including a creep set), 5 speeds with a two stage powershift. This gives the operator an infinent number of gears to match their application.

The transmission is fitted with a hydraulic Powershuttle with five adjustable settings, enabling the driver to change the direction of travel without actuating the clutch. The Sense O Clutch allows the operator to adjust the aggressiveness of the shuttle so that the tractor can be calibrated to match the application. This makes front end loader work and manoeuvring child‘s play. The Powershuttle also comes with a comfort clutch on the shifting lever. This engages at the press of a button and allows gear changes to be completed without the clutch pedal being pressed.

Agrofarm G tractors offer all four of the standard PTO speed modes (540, 540ECO, 1000 and 1000ECO), all of which selected and engaged electrohydraulically with an automatic load sensing function to ensure that the implement connected is always started progressively and smoothly. The PTO is simple and rational to operate, with electrohydraulic controls and an LCD screen displaying the effective PTO speed, allowing the driver to use any implement in the ideal operating conditions.

The New Agrofarm Series gives you the choice of speeds and gearbox functionality.

Cabin

Today's farmers can rely on DEUTZ-FAHR to give them a comfortable workplace in every tractor class. The new Agrofarm series boasts a newly designed 4 post cabin which gives the operator the ultimate unobstructured operating station.

All Deutz-Fahr tractors utilize a colour coded operating system. An array of colours for each button or lever represent their purpose. Ie: blue denotes the auxillary spool valves, green denotes the rear linkage whilst yellow represents any association to the PTO. This method of colour coding streches throughout the entire Deutz-Fahr range making it simple for an operator to come to terms with an operating platform when going from model to model. The Agrofarm cabin is designed with visibility and function in mind. This is due to the fact that traditionally a tractor of this size is fitted with a front end loader. Forward visibility has been maximised through the use of a slim line cabin design. This is further excentuated with the use of a glass panel in the roof providing an unobstructed view when operating a loader high in the air.

Electrical cable routing into the cabin for implement monitors etc is facilitated using a sealed flap system in the lower portion of the rear windscreen. This eliminates any dust or noise pentrating the cabin. All key controls come to hand via the right hand panel beside the operator. The power shuttle lever is located on the left hand side of the steering column. 

An air sprung seat is standard fitment on the Agrofarm cabin. This provides the operator a comfortable operating platform removing any shock loading and jolting through the seat. The Agrofarm cabin has ample head room and provision for a instructors seat. A tilting and adjustable steering column provides an excellent driving position no matter the height of the operator. All Agrofarm cabin tractors are fitted with a high output air conditioning system to suit the harsh New Zealand climate.

All components fitted to the interior of the cabin are designed to take the knocks and abrassions from high intensity farm use. With this in mind the pillars, floor and insulated panel work throughout the cabin can be wiped clean without fear of staining or making the components. 

The Agrofarm cabin is the ultimate practical work station where all controls naturally come to hand.

Hydraulics

Deutz-Fahr operates a dual hydraulic pump system which breaks up the demand of oil flow from key operating areas. A dedicated 56 L/min pump supplies oil to the rear auxillary valves and hitch whilst a second pump supplies oil to the steering pump and transmission for lubrication. This hydraulic circuit therefore guarantees flow to key areas such as the auxillary spool valves without jeopardising performance. This is a significant advantage where consistent oil flow is required to operate implements which are flow sensitive. A maximum of three auxillary spool valves are available for the Agrofarm series. Trailor brakes are also available as an option. 

The Agrofarm Series has a strong, simplistic easy to use three point linkage system with high capacity lift of 4300kg. A mechanical lower link sensing system gives accuracy and greater sensitivity when using implements requiring draft control.  This system is simple but very effective. The rear hitch can be controlled from the rear of the tractor making it simple to attach and unhook implements. This is further simplified using the CAT 11 hook ends.

The rear linkage and hydraulic circuit makes for a formidable combination well defending its reputation as a no-nonsense tough workhorse.
