Deutz-Fahr has revamped its 5-series tractors with improvements to the transmission, hydraulics and data transfer, as well as updating the three- and four-cylinder engines to Stage 5 emissions ratings.
Power outputs range from 95hp for the 2.8-litre three-cylinder engine in the 5100, to 126hp in the biggest of the four models that run a 3.8-litre four-cylinder.
There are five manual transmission options – GS 10×10, 20×20 and 30×30 and LS 10×10 and 20×20 – and the option of a creeper that offers 60 gears and working speeds from 300m/hour up to 40kph. There is also a hydraulic powershuttle with stop/go function and automatic powershift option.
Hydraulics are powered by a 90-litre/min pump and up to eight rear spools can be specced. Rear lift is 5,400kg (with the option of an electronic control system), and the front linkage capacity tops out at 2,100kg.
Data transfer is handled by SDF’s Smart Farming Solutions – a new digital platform that allows owners to track a machine’s location, and view performance data including diesel use, average speed, hours and any alerts or error codes.
The four-pillar Topvision cab is an upgrade on the outgoing models and features cab suspension, climate control, a high-visibility roof with opening hatch and an optional DAB radio.
Prices start at £70,163 and rise to £81,048.
