DEUTZ-FAHR 6 Series Cshift won the ’Machine of the year 2016’ award in the category ’Tractor upper middle class’. The recognition was announced at the Agritechnica trade show in Hanover, where a jury consisting of journalists specialising in agricultural machinery from the German publisher Deutscher Landwirtschaftsverlag dlv and its European partners awarded the most innovative machines in agriculture.
DEUTZ-FAHR 6 Series is already well known as one of the best designed tractors in the upper middle class, with the most advanced equipment coming as standard across the complete range. The Cshift models with the robotised transmission was a feature that stood out to ultimately convince the jury: changing gears without using the clutch via a comfortable, precise and simple joystick.
The jury especially underlined the Powershift transmission with the best efficiency to bring the engine power to the wheels, the very comfortable operation with the joystick, the bright and comfortable German design award winning cab, the great power to weight ratio and the high lifting capacity.
