This post is dedicated to our friends Felipe Sevilla, Juan Francisco Pérez and Diego Martínez, who sent us some pictures and comments about their trip to SDF Academy in Toledo. During the fourth week of October, the subsidiary company in Spain of Same Deutz-Fahr Group held three field days for all its customers, farmers and Facebook followers to introduce the new 9 Series. This new high power Series has to compete against the tested Fendt 900 Series, New Holland T8 Series or John Deere 8R Series... Good luck!
As you can see in our pictures, all attendees could test whole series of tractors Deutz-Fahr offered in Spain and especially the new 9340 TTV Agrotron. This tractor won The Golden Tractor for the Design 2015 award. On this way, Deutz-Fahr and mainly Giugiaro Design are carrying out an important work with all of their products, we remember this award was won (and The Tractor of the Year award too) by the 7250 TTV Agrotron in 2013. You can see more pictures about this new 9 Series in the Steven's website.
The new 9 series (it has four models: 9270TTV, 9290TTV, 9310TTV and 9340TTV) comprises the new 6-cylinder DEUTZ TTCD 7.8 L6 engine with four valves per cylinder, DCR (DEUTZ Common Rail) injection system with built-in electronic management, twin turbo chargers and intercooling and Tier 4 final which can generate a maximum power between 274HP/1,119Nm and 334HP/1,371Nm. The gearbox used is the new ZF Terramatic TMT 32 continuously variable transmission with four mechanical ratios which offers a maximum speed of 60 km/h at just 1,780 r.p.m. We would like to highlight front axle is manufactured by Dana (it is the Dana M770) because the other Agrotron (6 and 7 Series) models use Carraro axles. This Dana front axle uses semi-active suspension and external disc brakes. Disc brakes on the front axle and ABS are also available as options (ABS is standard on 60km/h versions).
Regarding the Bosch hydraulic system, the 9 Series has a powerful closed-circuit hydraulic system and load sensing pump operating at 210 l/min and operating at 200 bars with six auxiliary distributors. The impressive hydraulic performance is complimented with are rear lift capacity of 12,000kg. About the comfort offered by this 9 Series to farmers, the Maxi-Vision cab and color work monitor allow maximum visibility and the ergonomic arrangement of the controls set around the driver intuitively offer a pleasant working environment.
Finally, we would like to thank our friends Felipe, Juan Francisco and Diego to sent us a few pictures what allow us to see this event without being there... Thank you very much!!
