Deutz Agrotron K 120 launched

Press Release


Following hard on the heels of the launch last year of the Agrotron K 90, 100 and 110 tractors, Same Deutz-Fahr UK is now to introduce the Agrotron K 120.

The Agrotron K 120, which is available in two different specifications - the ProfiLine and standard - is powered by a Deutz four-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged electronically managed engine rated at 120hp - a Euro ll compliant engine which has been designed to combine excellent torque characteristics with low fuel consumption.

As with other models in the K Series, the 120 is equipped with an efficient yet compact cooling system which integrates the radiators for cooling the engine, oil, transmission and turbocharged air, into a neat unit that can be easily opened when cleaning is required.

A user friendly 40kph transmission based on the ZF 7100, offers a 24 x 8 box comprising three powershift ratios in four speeds which are then doubled up using an electronically operated splitter for field and road operation. There is also an option for a creeper box which increases the ratios to 36 x 12 and provides speeds as low as 0.25 kph.

Automatic powershift

Both the Standard and ProfiLine models benefit from an automatic powershift level adjustment system which provides a smooth transition when range shifting from field to road speeds and between gears three to four (and four to three), but the higher specification ProfiLine also has automatic powershift with speed matching - APS.

APS enables the operator to adjust the sensitivity of the system in respect of engine loads and speed and, as a result, allows the transmission to alter the point at which the four powershift gear ratios are automatically shifted.

Control for the transmission is by a Bowden gear cable with ProfiLine positioning the gear lever in the right hand arm rest - the PowerCom S multifunction armrest which conveniently combines all important functions of the tractor - powershift ranges, hydraulic linkage, and auxiliary valves.

Its design is such that all control operations can be made without having to take one's hand from the PowerComS - saving time and creating more efficient working.

In the hydraulic department, the Agrotron K 120 is fitted with a 55 litre/min pump - 83 litres/min ProfiLine - working at 200 bar plus a separate 26 litres/min steering pump operating at 180 psi. There are, as standard three double acting remote valves with colour coded levers to identify the respective valve. ProfiLine models benefit from four electronically controlled auxiliary valves with flow and timing facilities.

Powerful Hydraulics

Hydraulic lift capacity for the rear linkage is rated at 6220kg and, for the optional front linkage, 2500kg.

A choice of four pto speed is designed to enable the tractor to be used at different engine speeds yet still produce the required pto speed. For maximum power 540 and 1000 rpm is achieved at 1950 rpm engine speed and where fuel economy is a factor, the same pto speeds can be achieved at an engine speed of just 1550 rpm.

The rear pto also features a drive cut-off system when a three point linkage mounted powered implement is raised out of work. A clever way of preventing damage to universal joints.

For the operator, Deutz has retained all the air conditioned comfort and ergonomic control layout of the cabs used by other Agrotron models.

All levers and switches are colour coded for easy recognition and are logically and clearly arranged - frequently used controls are grouped conveniently on the driver's right hand side.

All engine management information, along with data such as forward speed, pto speed and oil temperatures are displayed on the Infocenter which is positioned in the centre of the dashboard.
