DEUTZ-FAHR displays farming solutions at SIMA Paris

C5000 1At the SIMA in Paris, DEUTZ-FAHR showcased its new range oriented towards emerging markets, the 6W Profi, which is comprised of four models with six-cylinder Stage III A engines and power levels between 130 and 180 HP

These machines, which are entirely designed in Italy, are distinguished by their modern design combined with robust mechanics, to ensure high productivity and low operating costs, which are strategic features in a global market that requires ever more reliable and performing equipment.

Under the bonnet of the new 6W Profi models, the reliable Deutz TCD 2012 L06 series engines work tirelessly, equipped with Deutz Common Rail (DCR) at 1600 bar, turbocharger with intercooler and waste-gate valve. Thanks to the electronic injection control, consumption is constantly optimised in relation to the required instantaneous power, while maintaining the delivered power almost constant, resulting in a wide range of engine speeds.

The 6130 W Profi, 6145 W Profi (on display at the DEUTZ-FAHR stand) and 6165 W Profi models feature a large 280-litre diesel tank, to which an additional 140-litre fuel tank can be added as an option. However, on the 6180 W Profi, both tanks are standard, with a capacity of up to 420 litres.

Designed by SDF, the fully synchronised transmissions offer 4 gears for 3 ranges with a shuttle, and offer wide configuration options: the more simple version offers a total of 12+12 speeds; as an option, a creeper or super-creeper can be added (in the latter case, it is possible to operate at only 200 m/h with the engine at maximum speed) for a combination of 16+12 speeds; if, instead, users prefer to opt for the splitter, they get to 24+12 gears.

The 6W Profi range is fitted as standard with a PTO with electro-hydraulic coupling, to allow a gradual and progressive start of the connected equipment. The standard configuration offers 540 and 1000 rpm coupling, whereas as an option, it is possible to have the 540ECO with 1000 rpm. For ease of maintenance, the dedicated PTO clutch has been placed near the shaft for easy access.

Constructed with premium components, the hydraulic system offers a 94 l/min fixed flow pump, serving the lift and the auxiliary distributors, which can be supplemented by an additional 37 l/min tandem pump, to provide a total flow of up to 131 l/min. In addition to all of this, there is also a 43 l/min pump dedicated to the power steering.

Large and small harvesters

The DEUTZ-FAHR offer includes a wide range of large and small harvesters. There is an increasing trend for farms to harvest grain using owned machinery, and many farmers are increasingly relying on their own combine harvesters to carry out threshing operations independently. The DEUTZ-FAHR C5000 range was designed with exactly this in mind to support this trend, completing the low end of the range.

Equipped with a Deutz Common Rail Stage V 6-cylinder 6.1 l engine with maximum power of 175 HP (129 kW), it guarantees high levels of performance, low consumption and a reduced environmental impact as well as long work days thanks to its 300 l fuel tank.

The C5305, presented in Paris, is equipped with a 3-speed, multifunction joystick controlled hydrostatic transmission: CommanderStick. The cutter bars are available in widths of 3.6 metres, 4.2 metres and 4.8 metres. The design of the frame and the Schumacher Easy Cut II system guarantee a clean and silent cut with minimised wear and jerky movements. The threshing drum of the C5305 has a 600 mm diameter and is 1110 mm wide. This particular configuration is synonymous with a wide pitch angle and as a result a considerable threshing surface, while still being a narrow and manoeuvrable machine. The total width, including the wheels, is  less than three metres.

The new DEUTZ-FAHR C5305 is an ideal machine for anyone searching for a compact and powerful combine harvester that guarantees optimal performance with low threshing and maintenance costs.

The control console in the CommanderCab VI has been fully redesigned. All the control elements are now integrated in the armrest of the new extra-large seat, which was inherited from top-of-the-range Deutz-Fahr tractors. The diagnostics and all the adjustments of the combine harvester are controlled and managed by the new iMonitor with an eight inch touchscreen. In this way, the operator always has an overview of engine performance, losses and all notifications. The Balance system is now managed using a joystick integrated into the multifunction armrest for simpler and faster control on uneven terrain. With lateral compensation of up to 20 per cent and compensation when driving uphill/downhill of up to six per cent, maximum harvesting performance is guaranteed even on difficult terrain.

A second 12-inch iMonitor is dedicated to managing the precision farming instructions, such as assisted driving (Agrosky) or harvest mapping. The same monitor is also connected to the cameras located on the side or to the rear, which help when manoeuvring and when emptying the grain tank.
