Large 9 Se­ries Deutz-Fahr trac­tors show up on Aussie shores

Deutz-Fahr has in­tro­duced the new 9 Se­ries line-up of high-horse­power trac­tors to Aus­tralia, un­veil­ing them at El­more Field Days 2016.

Deutz says the 9 Se­ries TTV was de­vel­oped from the ground up, fo­cus­ing on au­to­ma­tion and driver com­fort.

With a twin-tur­bocharged 7.8-litre 6-cylin­der en­gine, the trac­tors can pro­duce up to 340hp.

Im­porter PFG Aus­tralia prod­uct man­ager An­thony Dar­v­eniza says the en­gine makes the trac­tor more than ca­pa­ble of pro­duc­ing enough power.

“It’s got a twin-turbo en­gine … so one turbo will ac­ti­vate while the other one comes in at higher revs, plus it’s got very good torque at low-end revs,” Dar­v­eniza says.

The Deutz com­mon rail and ex­haust re­cir­cu­la­tion sys­tem means the 9 Se­ries com­ing to the Aus­tralian mar­ket will be at the Tier 3 emis­sions stan­dard.

With a con­tin­u­ously vari­able trans­mis­sion, most of the trac­tor’s torque is avail­able at only 1000rpm, while the max­i­mum torque be­tween 1200rpm and 1600rpm re­mains con­stant.

The re­designed front axle and sus­pen­sion will im­prove com­fort for the driver, says Dar­v­eniza, who also points out the noise-re­duc­tive de­sign of the cab.

“One of the main things with this trac­tor is that it’s got new front-axle sus­pen­sion on it, which gives you more move­ment and makes ser­vic­ing eas­ier,” he says.

“The en­gine and cab are sep­a­rated, and ba­si­cally that re­duces the noise lev­els. “It’s also Euro­pean de­signed, so from an er­gonomic and op­er­a­tional point of view you’ve got ev­ery­thing on there.”

The model dis­played at El­more was the 9340 TTV, the largest of the range.

“The wheel­base on this trac­tor is ac­tu­ally a bit de­ceiv­ing as it’s quite long, which gives you bet­ter ride qual­ity,” Dar­v­eniza says. “The wheel­base is longer than our com­peti­tors’ trac­tors, which is a key thing for pulling im­ple­ments.”

Though it has been avail­able in Europe for a year, the trac­tor is new to Aus­tralia.
