Now topping out the Deutz-Fahr X-series tractor range is the new X730 which is powered by a Deutz turbocharged engine rated at 305hp.

With four valves per cylinder, the engine employs the Deutz common rail high-pressure fuel injection system and externally cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR).

An amazingly high torque engine – maximum torque is 1206 Nm at an engine speed of just 1600 rpm – gear shifting within the 50kph, 40 x 40 transmission with its automatic powershift (APS) can be kept to the minimum and, as a result improved fuel economy is achieved.

Key features of the new tractor include a new and stronger rear axle design and a front axle with external disc brakes. These discs have a diameter of 590mm and have an active re-set which, when the brakes are not in use, pulls the pads away from the discs to prevent noise and wear caused by dirt.

In the cab, the X730 is equipped with the new comprehensive operator information panel as used in the Agrotron TTV 630 and can, if specified, also be fitted with the new iMonitor. Options also extend to pneumatic or semi-active cab suspension.

A load sensing hydraulic system with an output of 177 litres/minute is standard and provides a maximum rear linkage lift of 10,500kgs and 4500kgs for the front linkage. The rear pto provides 540E and 1000 rpm and the front, 1000rpm.

A truly powerful tractor, the 305hp Deutz-Fahr Agrotron X730 will be a popular choice for arable farmers looking for a reliable, fuel efficient tractor capable of producing high outputs.

Deutz-Fahr Agrotron M410 and M420 Deutz-Fahr’s Agrotron M-series just got bigger with the addition of two four-cylinder models – the M410 and the M420 which are rated at 143hp and 158hp respectively.

The first four-cylinder tractors to join the M-series, these new models employ Deutz common rail engines which have four valves per cylinder and use an external exhaust gas recirculation system. In the transmission department, a four stage powershift transmission offers a choice of 24 x 24 or 40 x 40 gears.

Designed for use with farmers and contractors needing a powerful yet economical tractor capable of performing a wide range of tasks in both the arable and livestock sectors, the new tractors, due to their shorter length (4.05m), are very manoeuvrable.

For the operator, cab furniture includes the new comfort armrest and standard Power S-control system and an ergonomic control layout that provides four pto speeds.

The Deutz-Fahr Agrotron M410 and M420 tractors will meet the increasing demand for compact yet powerful tractors in the 130hp to 160hp power range.

Agritechnica will also see Same Deutz-Fahr introducing a whole range of updates to its existing tractor and telehandler models including those marketed in the Same and Lamborghini brands.

Taking pride of place though, alongside the new X730 and M-series models will be the 60 Series combines harvesters - a completely new range of machines that offer new styling, improved technical specification and, as a result, higher outputs.
