Same Deutz-Fahr plans to have two distinct display areas to at this year’s Ploughing event – a move designed to emphasise a differentiation of the SAME and Deutz-Fahr brands.
*Deutz-Fahr: stand 388, avenue W
For the Deutz-Fahr display, the event will be the first time that models from the recently introduced 5, 6 and 7 Series tractors will be on show in both Powershift and TTV formats. There will be examples from each of the ranges – the award winning 7250 TTV, the 6180 TTV and the 5120 TTV and, with Powershift transmissions, there will the 6180P followed by the 6150.4 and the 5110.
The range topping 263hp 7250 TTV, is powered by a Deutz 6.1 series Tier 4i engine while the 6180 forms part of a six-model line-up which covers the 150hp to 190hp power band. The 5 Series comprises three models and offers a power span from 100hp to 122hp.
Deutz-Fahr will also be promoting a new initiative which will involve inviting visitors to register on the stand for a Deutz-Fahr driving experience – dealers will be running a series of driving days during October and November to provide an opportunity for customers to drive the 5, 6 and 7 Series tractors.
Completing the Deutz-Fahr exhibit will be the brand’s 5-walker 6040 combine harvester and the new Agrovector 37.7 telescopic loader.
*SAME: stand 413, avenue X
The SAME display will provide visitors with the chance to see the new 122hp Same Virtus 120 alongside the latest versions of the popular Tiger, Dorado and Explorer tractors.
Introduced last year, the three-model Same Virtus range is powered by electronically powered 4-cylinder Deutz engines driving through powershift transmissions. Features include a high power to weight ratio – the 120, for example, has a ratio of just 38.5kg/hp.
For SAME tractor enthusiasts, there are also plans for a vintage SAME to be on the stand in support of a brand focus on the SAME heritage. All of which should make interesting viewing.
