new models fill deutz range gap

Deutz-Fahr says two new models launched in its 6 Series range of four-cylinder tractors will help meet strong demand from farming professionals. The 126 horsepower (94kW) Deutz-Fahr 6130 and 136hp (101kW) Deutz-Fahr 6140 were developed to answer the many challenges of everyday farming with stronger construction and heavy duty axles, the company says. Previously the strongest tractor in the company’s four cylinder range was the 5130, which topped out at 127hp (95kW), with its next strongest model being the six-cylinder 6135G, equipped with a 141hp (105kW) engine. Deutz-Fahr product manager Anthony Darveniza says the new models fill the gap between those two models, providing advantages that aren’t available elsewhere. “With a longer wheelbase and heavier build, these tractors are very stable and highly efficient. They are going to make people think again about how…

next gen smart tech

New Holland has built its precision agriculture technology in a new version of its Genesis T8 Series tractor from the ground up – and with a redesigned cab to boot. The company says the new Genesis T8 offers better connectivity between operators, vehicles, advisors and dealers to help improve productivity and reduce downtime. New Holland’s product marketing manager for its Precision Land Management (PLM) Intelligence platform Luke Zerby says the new Genesis T8 is designed to be open, connected, smart and supported – by both the manufacturer and its dealer network. “PLM Intelligence maximises all of these, utilising ISOBUS CLASS III technology to keep you completely connected through MyPLMConnect and APIs to share and analyse your data, and now to enhance support functionality through one’s local New Holland dealer,” he says. “This is all…

top of the class

With a slight facelift and an upgraded tier 4 final engine, the new Claas Arion 600 series, distributed here by Landpower, is a good-looking addition to the Australian market. KEY FEATURES The latest Claas Arion 600 series has been beefed up, now pushing out a max 205 horsepower (153kW) through its 6.8-litre six-cylinder CPS engine, which is actually a John Deere engine. This is a fair bit more than the previous Arion 600 max hp which topped out at 184hp (137kW). Servicing intervals have been pushed out to 600 hours on the engine and 1,200 on the transmission, which also helps to keep running costs down. Landpower product manager Michael Pundt explains that the whole frame is more-or-less the same on the new Claas Arion 600, except it’s now got bigger tyres. “This is for…

agco training attracts crowd

Over 80 farm machinery dealers got to grips with a new Massey Ferguson square baler at a multiday product training event for AGCO in Melbourne last month. AGCO, which is also the parent company of Fendt, demonstrated its new MF 2370 ultra high density square baler at the event alongside the Fendt Tigo wagon and the Massey Ferguson WR9900 self-propelled windrower. Dealers also examined round balers, trailed wrappers and other hay tools from Agco’s Hesston and European plants at the event, AGCO national green harvest manager David Allan says. “The feedback from our attendees was that it was beneficial to see the products up close, especially given the new additions to the range such as the Massey Ferguson round baler range,” he says. “We have an exciting new range of models that add to…

Innovative ideas to develop airborne disease detection and mapping for grain farmers, a smarter way to fence using your phone and purifying abattoir water for reuse are among 14 projects to receive funding in the Government’s Science and Innovation Awards. Each of the project proponents will receive grants of up to $22,000 to further develop their ideas, for a combined $330,000 in grant funding, Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources David Littleproud says. “These are innovative and practical ideas that will make farm businesses more efficient and provide greater protection against biosecurity threats,” he says. “All projects have big potential and we want to see them reach their goals. One project will also win the Minister’s Award with another $22,000 to help deliver the project.” The Meat & Livestock Australia Award went to Travis…
