A specialist with more options than a tractor of 400 HP

The fact that Deutz-Fahr has been committed to steeples transmission in its tractor for many years is a proven fact. Almost the entire range of tractors has this type of transmission (from 5 Series to 9 Series), but recently the 5 Series in its specialist tractor variants has become a very exclusive tractor and we would say that it is a unique tractor. If the Deutz-Fahr 5 DF, or the Same Frutteto, was already one of the best specialist tractor, he becomed a unique tractor in its segment at the moment of adding the options of ActiveDrive (independent suspension on the front axle) and ActiveSteer (the four wheels are directional and rear wheels can turn up to 20º). These improvements have made it the best option for the most exquisite farmers with their work and especially with their tractors. The ActiveSteer, the last improvement we mentioned, is the one that makes this tractor have better specifications than a 400 HP tractor and exclusive in the market. 

A few months ago, we were able to try and, especially, enjoy the Deutz-Fahr 5115 DF TTV ActiveSteer-ActiveDrive during a working day in the vineyard with our friend Helio and Oscar (El Provencio - Cuenca). There, we could test the tractor with a FerroPRO S.L. cultivator, with a General shredder and also in transport works. The sensations were very good as the tractor is driven very comfortably. The cabin, although it is small, has all the comfort options, the turning radius is very small because the four wheels are steerable (although we didn't really see this as a huge advantage either) and the independent suspension is a joy on the roads. Initially the tractor is somewhat complex to drive because of the many options available, but with practice we understand that this is not a problem. We also found the driving mode only with joystick (without accelerator) a bit strange.

You can find the most important features of the Deutz-Fahr 5115 DF TTV ActiveSteer-ActiveDrive bellow (you can see here how the Same Frutteto CVT or the Deutz-Fahr 5 DF TTV are made):  

  • FARMotion engine of 3,849 cm3 and 4-cylinder (Stage IIIB). 
  • Maximum power of 113 HP and 435 Nm (ECER120). 
  • TTV Stepless transmission, designed by SDF (T3500). 
  • Maximum speed 40 km/h at only 1,650 r.p.m. 
  • PTO 540/540E/1000. 
  • Independent suspension with double wishbone of the front wheels. 
  • Closed-centre hydraulic system of 100 l/min (only for the lift and distributors). Pump of 42 l/min for the steering.   
  • Four-wheel steering. 
  • Cab with Cat 4 filter system and flat platform. 

We would like to publish this last post of this year to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2021. Next year, we have good health, rain and a good harvest.
