Brand new on the two-model Deutz 5GS series is the FARMotion Tier 4i engines. These 3.8-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged and intercooled engines are equipped with high-pressure common-rail fuel injection.

For emissions, DOC (diesel oxidation catalyst) and EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) are the order of the day. This allows the engine to meet the EU Tier 4i engine regulations without the need for AdBlue or a DPF (diesel particulate filter), which are both big ticks in the Deutz’s favour.

Service intervals are 500 hours for the engine and 1000 hours for the transmission. A sight glass for daily checking of the rear-end oil, and a high-lift bonnet for servicing around the front are handy features. The only small niggle is the three-piece bonnet, although the side panels will only need to be removed by the service technician – or if you want to exterminate a pesky bird during nesting season.

On the transmission front, the Deutz offers the most gears out of any tractors tested. The 40×40 transmission has five gears on the stick with a splitter and de-clutch button and four working ranges (slow, fast, under drive and super-creeper), all rounded off with a power shuttle.
