On display during the open days will be the Deutz Fahr 6 Series CShift, the evolution of the family of tractors from 150 to 210 hp with robotic drive.

The robotic drive, which is available only on models with ZF T7200 IRSdrive, lets you manage the six ranges simply by using the joystick, without pressingthe clutch pedal or moving any levers.

To shift ranges (from one to six) all you have to do is press or pull the joystick pushing the OK button on the back at the same time.

When shifting from high to low, the gears in Powershift automatically adapt thanks to the speed-matching, while the electronic management of robotic drive handles the switch precisely and rapidly, safeguarding the bodies from overrun or loads that could compromise the system’s integrity.

You will practically drive the new 6 Series tractors with one hand, going from one gear to the next in less than 0.5 seconds. All the drive parameters are visible on display on the front right column of the cab: reset gear, gear in place, speed in Powershift (LMHS), forward or backward direction.

The number “0” on the display shows the “neutral” position.

Also, with Automatic Powershift, the driving comfort is further increased: The electronic control unit, in fact, aids the driver in selectingand automatically switching the gear in optimal Powershift, precisely identified and making errors impossible, in function of the load and the engine speed detected, moment by moment.

The strengths of the CShift drive 
are as follows:

n Range shift in less than 0.5 seconds

n Range change control via CAN 
 (controller area network) with IRS 
 (Intelligent Range Shifter)

n Protection of the drive while 
 repeatedly shifting gears

n Easy management with the Joystick

n 50km/h (40km/h at engine 
 economy speed)

n Proportional valves for ever 
 perfect switching

n Automatic clutch management 
 during range changes

n Electronic engine management in
 range changes with speed-matching
