9 SERIES GETS GOLD

The Deutz-Fahr 9340 has won the 2015 ‘Golden Tractor for the Design’ award. The 9 Series has four models from 270 to 340hp with TTV continuously-variable transmission. They are claimed to be the ideal choice for the highest levels of power, provided by Deutz TCD 7.8-litre, twin turbo, six-cylinder engines hooked to ZF TMT 32 continuously-variable transmissions.

A top speed of 60kph can be attained at just 1,780 rpm and 50kph at 1,480 rpm, helping to reduce fuel consumption. The braking system requires only a small input to bring the tractor safely to a halt, with front disc brakes on the 60kph version. An electronic parking brake (EPB) with positive engagement also increases safety.

The hydraulic system employs a 210 l/min load-sensing pump operating at 200 bar, providing 150 l/min to up to seven rear spools and allowing a lift capacity of 12 tonnes.

The Maxi-Vision cab has a single-piece windscreen, ‘soft grip’ steering wheel and allows options that include a 12in touch screen monitor and Agrosky GPS navigation system.
