Deutz-Fahr Agrotron M600 Comfort Plus

As we told you in last post, Agrotrac dealer delivered us a new Deutz-Fahr Agrotron M600 Comfort Plus on last Monday. We haven't worked with it, we only tested it on the road and it stands out for its big comfort thanks its mechanical suspension in cab and its front axle hydro-pneumatic suspension. The sensations are formidable: 4 speed powershift are very soft on road, Deutz engine reacts very quickly, it gets high revolutions quickly and air breaks transmit a great control of the tractor. It is a great tractor.

The most important highlights are:
  • Deutz DCR TCD 2012 L06 2V engine with 6,057cm3 and 6 cylinders.
  • Maximun power: 140 hp.
  • Tank capacity of 270 litres.
  • Gearbox ZF T7224: 6 speed range transmision synchronized and 4 speed powershift.
  • Nº of gears with creeper gear: 40/40.
  • Soft powershuttle reversing transmission.
  • Mecanical suspension in cab and front axle hydro-pneumatic suspension.
  • Grammer Maximo Conform seat with pneumatic suspension.
  • ZF Lifting force rear of 9,200kg.
  • PTO of 540, 540E, 1000 and 1000E.
  • Integrated and sound-proofed safety cab with noise level of 73dB.
  • Pump flow rate of 83 l/min (open center) and 4 hydraulic remote valves.
  • Maximun speed at 50km/h.
  • Continental HC 70 tyres: 480/70 R24 and 520/70 R38.

More winter tasks: this time with mini ploughing

Unfortunately, this winter has begun very dry, so we have a lot of time to prepare our soil to sow sunflowers in April. This time, we used mini ploughing tool because we were ploughing a fallow. We didn't need a big working depth so we can save some diesel too. That morning was very foggy and there were a little soil frost , so it allows us to take nice pictures as you can see below.

This working was the last one we have done with our Agrotron 85, because the next week we are going to have a new Agrotron M600 Confort Plus which we have bought in Agrotrac dealer. I would like to say this tractor has been like a faithful friend: it has never failed!. We have never had any problem with it which has always worked very fine. Now, the main problem is that it is small for our work. We hope our new Agrotron M600 will behave like our old Agrotron 85.
