The Agroplus V/S/F Series of tractors offers specialist farmers three minimum widths: V – 1110 mm; S – 1220 mm; and F – 1510 mm.

With unique design requirements needed for the specialist grower, the Agroplus V/F/S series is ideal for fruit growers and vineyards looking for a compact and powerful tractor.

Engines that develop power
This range of tractors can be supplied from 85 hp to 106 hp engines, designed compact in size but big on features. A 4 cylinder turbocharged diesel engine equipped with intercooler gives optimum torque and power from 1600rpm, a figure targeted by engineers as the tractor’s economy speed PTO runs at this engine rpm, thereby resulting in better efficiencies.
The cruise control or engine speed programming features enables the operator to set and retrieve an engine speed with the press of a button. This has two benefits: first, and most important, is the ECU is governing the fuel to the engine depending on load at all times, resulting in better fuel consumption compared to mechanically controlled versions; and, secondly, the ease of retrieving your engine rpm when returning to the row guarantees the right PTO and engine rpm setting at all times.
With a specialist tractor speed options are vital depending upon the task and conditions. This range can be equipped with a wet clutch Powershuttle or synchro shuttle spec, plus the choice of either 30/15 speed gearbox with mechanical splitter or a 45/45 gearbox equipped with a 3 speed powershift. All transmissions are equipped with a 40 km/h eco feature whereby engine revs are lowered at full speed.
Push Button PTO
All Agroplus V/S/F tractors are equipped with an independent wet clutch PTO. Engaging the smooth start PTO is simple – just the touch of a button. The PTO is also direct drive, resulting in minimal power loss from engine to PTO shaft. All tractors are standard with 540 and 540 economy speeds, and customers can equip their tractor with a 1000 speed also if required.
The letters of the series define the width of the tractor, with F being the widest at 1510mm, S at 1220mm and V at 1110mm. The most critical point, especially when operating in orchards, is the width of the roof, and all models possess 1048mm width. The spacious cabins are equipped with air-conditioner, air seat, multi-function digital dash, ergonomic controls and carbon filters. Also available as an option is a low profile cabin with an overall height of 1920 mm.
Spacious Operating Area
When sitting in the cabin of the Agroplus it feels like a normal sized tractor. Equipped with a one piece door, the cabin’s normal B pillar is removed which allows for increased internal space. All cabins are equipped with an air seat as standard, along with finishing touches such as MP3 Bluetooth radio player, drink bottle holder and a high capacity air-conditioning system to keep you cool at all times.
Tight Turning Circle
A tight turning circle is achieved by a sculptured front axle. Unlike some other manufacturers Deutz-Fahr keeps their systems simple to achieve the best turning circle, resulting in less upkeep and maintenance to the front axle. Turning circles of 3.4mt can be achieved (tyre equipment depending), allowing operators to successfully manoeuvre in tight headland.
As a vineyard, orchardist or any type of specialist grower, hydraulic functionality and capacities are vital. The Agroplus models brought into Australia are equipped with three sets of rear remotes with a flow regulator; however, if this is not enough a tractor with front mounted remotes that can be duplicated front rear, or have separate functionality with mechanical and electronic options, can be ordered. Deutz Fahr will have the solution.
Full PTO Functionality
PTO equipment on the Agroplus V / S / F does not fall short either: 540 and 1000 rpm and the economy PTO 540E are standard. Start-up is modulated, protecting both the attached implement and the drivetrain of the tractor. Front PTO and front powerlift available on request, delivering 1000 rpm.
