The chance of ever finding a highly capable off-road vehicle like this downtown or in the burbs is close to zero. What we’ve got here is a spick-and-span Deutz-Fahr 6-series, which I caught at a nearby farm- and garden equipment dealership.
Under the hood of this Giugiaro-design, that’s right, a water cooled Deutz TCD 6.1 L06 diesel engine with a turbocharger and intercooler. Furthermore the tractor is equipped with EGR+DPF+SCR (AdBlue), the works.
An inline-6 engine with 24 valves and 6.1 liter displacement. With its Deutz Common Rail system the engine’s maximum power output in the 6215, the 6-series’ top model, is 212 hp; 226 hp with power boost. The fuel supply pumps are lubricated by the engine oil, not by the diesel fuel (which is normally the case).
The long history of Deutz AG (known as Klöckner-Humboldt-Deutz AG from 1938 to 1997) dates back to 1864, when Eugen Langen and Nicolaus August Otto founded N.A. Otto & Cie, the world’s first engine manufacturer.
Engineer Otto was the first man who built a working four-stroke engine, using a coal gas-air mixture. I’m sure the terms Otto-cycle and Otto-engine sound familiar.
The cab interior of a 6-series TTV, which means it has a ZF continuously variable transmission.
Deutz-Fahr, nowadays an SDF company, was formed when Klöckner-Humboldt-Deutz AG merged its farm equipment brands Deutz and Fahr. Prominently in the middle is a modern interpretation of the globally renowned Deutz logo.
Shot last year, a 1961 Deutz D25 farm tractor with an air cooled 25 hp 2-cylinder diesel engine. Farm tractor and diesel engine, that’s all the D25 and 6215 TTV have in common. Even the typical shade of Deutz-green evolved.
