PFG Australia has introduced two additional tractors to their well-established and successful Deutz-Fahr 4E Series.
The 95hp 4100.4E and the 85hp 4090.4E ROPS tractors add further strength and versatility to their range.
These high-spec, high-quality, versatile, all-purpose tractors extend the range to three cab models – 62 horsepower, 80 horsepower and 95 horsepower tractors – and a first European style, Deutz-Fahr ROPS tractor, providing an even greater choice to Australian farmers and growers.
The all-purpose tractors join the existing range with demonstrable power, manoeuvrability and loader capabilities. The new 4100.4E (95 horsepower) has a state-of-the-art Deutz-Fahr cabin, providing the ultimate in comfort, while the 4090.4E ROPS (85 horsepower) model loses nothing other than airconditioning through its open air platform.
PFG Deutz-Fahr tractor specialist Anthony Darveniza said, “These powerful yet compact tractors will provide unequalled versatility in the field and on the road. With a CreepSpeed of just 280m/hr and a top speed of 40kmh, these tractors are a good fit for any job from large lifestyle blocks, to the challenging and precise applications required by grape growers and horticulturalists. In addition, these tractors are so easy to operate and maintain that numerous operators can jump on and be driving within minutes.”
Both the 4090.4E (85hp) and the 4100.4E (95hp) are powered by the Deutz-Fahr 4-cylinder, 4000 CC (4.0 litre) turbocharged, inter-cooled engine. The compact design of the engine has allowed the minimal dimensions, reduction in weight, whilst maintaining maximum performance.
The transmission is simple, proven Deutz-Fahr transmission technology. It provides 30 forward and 15 reverse gears in five synchronised speed gears and three range gears, including creep, and synchronised shuttle.The synchronised shuttle enables forward and reverse to be selected through the simple movement of a lever, when using a front-end loader .
The ability to stop is important. Deutz-Fahr has developed a valuable feature from its oil-immersed wet brakes. The front brakes are engaged together with the rear to ensure positive stopping when towing heavy loads, and in difficult conditions.
The four-wheel-drive front axle enables a turning angle of 55 degrees, providing excellent manoeuvrability, whilst the featured centre line drive eliminates the need for universal joints, decreasing maintenance.
The operator will appreciate the hydrostatic steering which enables fast and easy control for reduced operator-fatigue. An independent 17-litres-per-minute pump ensures total steering control at all times.
Providing additional reliability and safety, the hydraulic system has a dedicated 45-litres-per-minute pump to supply the lifting ram and auxiliary valves. Another operator-leaser is the Easy Lift button which enables the operator to lift the three-point linkage up/down with the press of a button. These additions give greater accuracy and simplicity to mounting a wider range of implements.
The cabin and ROPS platform offer a characteristically Deutz-Fahr, spacious working area, comfortable driving position and colour-coded, ergonomic controls for every aspect of operation.
The 4100.4E is fitted with digital climate control, similar to a car, whilst the 4090.4 ROPS model features a two-post, foldable frame with sun canopy, in place of airconditioning.
The Deutz-Fahr 4E Series provides users with the ideal combination of compact dimensions, power, a sturdy construction and simplicity of use. With applications from parks to horticulture, viticulture to sheep, beef and dairy, they are capable of the widest variety of operations.
This proven and highly successful Deutz-Fahr range is brought to you by PFG Australia. For further details and information, visit deutztractors.com.au, or contact your local Deutz-Fahr dealership.
