6 Series RCshift

6165 & 6215 - The Auto Shifting Tractor 

The agricultural industry is highly diverse. Each individual enterprise has its own totally individual success strategy. Some go for size, others for specialisation. In milk production, in livestock, or in the arable farming.Others successfully adopt a mixed approach in accordance with soil and climate conditions as well as market opportunities. Whether it’s a large, medium or small enterprise, a contractor or a local authority, however diverse the profile, they all have one thing in common – they need to be successful.

Accordingly, tractor technology needs to 100% match their working profile. Ploughing, sowing, cultivating, transporting, harvesting crops, front loader work – each individual professional will decide how the tractor will be utilised, along with which specific features are required. DEUTZ-FAHR has developed the new 6 Series for all these requirements.
Ranging from 171 to 226 HP, six-cylinder engines, ZF RCshift auto transmissions and comfortable MaxiVision cabins the 6 Series assemble the best technology mix in this tractor class.





MaxCom Armrest Control

The newly designed armrest makes the 6 Series even more relaxing and intuitive to operate. All routine functions can be automated. The new, highly ergonomic MaxCom joystick on the armrest controls everything from driving speed, direction of travel and cruise control selection to the ComforTip system, rear and front lift controls. An intuitive system that requires no change of hand position and no more than a moment’s thought to operate.

MaxiVision Deluxe Cabin

When it comes to ease of use and ergonomics, the new 6 Series MaxiVision 2 Cabin caters for the operator by making best use of the current technology available. The InfoCentrePro on the dashboard features a 5" colour display, providing the driver with a stream of data about the tractor’s operating conditions. It offers maximum convenience in terms of settings and information. The interior provides a peaceful working environment, with all engine noise, vibrations and heat reduced to a minimum as there is no connection between the cab and engine.


Front Linkage and PTO Options

When you get to this Hp segment the use of front and rear implements used at the same time grows. The team at Deutz Fahr have always put a lot of thought in designing a tractor with Front linkage and PTO with the first inceptions put in to place in the mid-70s with the famous INTRAC series. The front linkage and PTO systems fitted are integrated into the front casting of the tractor resulting in better weight distribution when mounting a front implement. The front linkage units use a separate remote valve for raise and lowering and PTO is engaged with a button inside the cabin. If you are looking to be more efficient with your farming practices then this step is the right way to go.

Sense Clutch Powershuttle

A large master drive clutch is located between the powershift and range sections. All drive has to pass through this clutch and protects the transmission driveline from sudden changes in speed or loading. The actuation is carried out electronically via the clutch pedal or comfort clutch button and is automatically modulated to allow a progressive take-up of drive. This system also features the “Sense Clutch” system where the user can modulate the shuttle movements with 5 available settings.

Closed Centre Hydraulics

All 6 Series RCshift are fitted with closed centre hi flow hydraulic pumps and electro hydraulic remote valves. These valves via a proportional joystick and switches on armrest. Flow and timing settings can be controlled within cabin allowing to make easy adjustments to any implement you are connected up to. With the electro hydraulic system fitted there is an external fender control to work 1 remote. All Deutz Fahr 6 Series tractors are equipped standard with Power Beyond and load sense lines allowing external implement hook up easy.

50 km/h and Front Suspension 

The RcShift transmission is designed for a maximum speed of 75km/h. Thanks to this feature, the 6 Series is capable to reach 50 km/h at super eco engine rpm. All 50km models are equipped with front axle and cabin suspension. The front axle suspension was redesigned from the previous series to allow more movement resulting in better ride and traction results. When front axle suspension is engaged there I +/- 120mm of travel available at all times. Another standard feature is the anti-dive valve and when brakes applied the front axle won’t move.  

GPS Steering Solutions

As an option the 6 Series RcShift tractor can be fitted with the Easy steer Hydraulic valve. Not only does this give you options to plug a GPS systems into but also gives the operator a feature where the steering revolutions form lock to lock can be reduced when system activated. Deutz- Fahr offer in house GPS steering solutions with Trimble powered and TopCon products available. Both systems combine the latest guidance features.

RcShift Gearbox

The 6 Series is equipped with the 54/27 RCSHIFT transmission, the new full robotized gearbox available for 6165 and 6215 models. With the aid of an electro hydraulic valve block and an exclusive software module developed by Deutz-Fahr, it is possible to shift through all the 30 speeds automatically.  In addition a semi-automatic shifting and a manual mode is available. The result is the new RCSHIFT full robotized transmission where the short shifting duration and the fully automatic management give the driver the feeling of a full powershift with the driving behaviour of a continuously variable transmission.

4 Valve Deutz Diesel Engine

The new series six-cylinder 6 Series DEUTZ engines have been completely remodelled in terms of exhaust technology and cost-efficiency. Using 4 valve technology the tractors engine respond better, provide greater torque reserves and start with greater torque in the lower engine speed range. Simultaneously, fuel consumption was reduced. The Deutz 6.1 lt 6 cylinder engine uses Deutz common rail technology (DCR) electronic waste gate turbocharger and many other technologies to give the best performance. All Deutz engines brought into Australia feature NO AdBlue and NO DPF technologies resulting in a lower maintenance cost.
