The new 7-Series TTV from Deutz-Fahr includes the 7250 TTV and 7250 TTV HD – both of which offer greater comfort and higher traction force, paired with highest efficiency through the new SDF TTV Compound Transmission than any predecessors.

So confident is Deutz-Fahr of the 7-Series' reliability and lowest running cost too, that the engine oil replacement interval has been increased to 1000 hours, while the transmission has been increased to 2000 hours.

As you would expect, the brand has stuck with it's own well known diesel engines, with the Deutz TCD 6.1 Stage V engine fitted now offering up to 247hp and a maximum torque of 1072Nm.

But the real hero is the new SDF TTV Compound Transmission – equipped with the PowerZero function and the well-known PowerShuttle – which gives tip-top performance and class-leading acceleration. It can reach its 60kph top speed at less than 1800 engine rpm and 40kph at less than 1200 rpm.

The TTV transmissions are a combination of two extremely efficient hydrostatic units, paired with optimised mechanical components.

Traction is also assisted by the availability of larger diameter rear tyres – up to 2.05m – are now available for the new 7-Series TTV and the payload has been increased to up to 6.5 tonnes, with a gross vehicle weight of 15.5 tonnes. This can increases to 16-tonnes with the 7250 HD version.

Intelligent front axle suspension is available, as are dry disc brakes, for improved road safety. The turning circle has also been reduced by almost 2m.

A new steeper hood and raised cab gives better all round visibility, more able to see the front 5450kg-capacity front linkage, which can come with dual speed front pto of 1000 or 1000ECO chosen via the InfoCentre control systems. This also allows the driver to choose the ECO pto speeds at the rear.

The new 7-Series hydraulic circuit is independent from the transmission lubrication circuit, while the load sensing pump is available with three different flow rates with up to 210 litres/min. Thanks to the new CleanOil hydraulic system, there are 90-litres of removable oil capacity.

Furthermore, the electronic control of all the distributors means that they can be programmed and controlled proportionally.

The new 7-Series TTV is TIM ready, allowing two-way communication between the tractor and implements, further helping efficiency and work quality.

For the first time in this power range, Deutx-Fahr's engineers have developed a TTV front-loader light and 'ReadyKit', which, together with the Profiline FZ80.1 front loader, makes the 7-Series a real loader tractor. It also has a new lifting height of more than 4.5m and a breakout force of 3770 daN.

The renewed MaxiVision cab can be equipped with the optional and improved pneumatic suspension, a practical bar mount for the installation of additional monitors, as well as a pneumatic seat which can swivel up to 23°.

The tractors are equipped with the new SR20 GNSS RTK satellite receiver, matched to an Auto-Turn function for automatic headland turning.

The iMonitor3 controls all major functions, allowing data exchange through Agrirouter. New functions include Via XTEND, which allows the screen to be cast wirelessly to external tablets and as standard there's also a data management package and SDF Fleet Management free of charge for the first year.

This allows also remote diagnostics to improve the communication flow between dealer and driver.

Depending on towing requirements, these latest tractors can be equipped with hydraulic and/or pneumatic trailer brakes, while a dual mode function allows it to connect old and new models of hydraulic braked trailers.

The latest advanced Trailer Brake Management (aTBM) optimises trailer braking performance, though an engine brake is also available, which activates the E-visco fan to increase deceleration.
