With the introduction of the Profi 6 cylinder and its new 8-speed transmission under load (powershift) improved, STEYR completes the renowned Profi range. Already much appreciated for its proven versatility and efficiency, this range now also includes a tractor with an exceptional 6-cylinder engine: the 6.7-liter FPT-ECOTECH common-rail diesel engine with turbocharger, intercooler, HI emission control technology -eSCR and Power Plus engine management system, offers a nominal power of 145 hp and a maximum power of 158 hp that with the Power Plus reaches up to 175 hp. This thrifty FPT engine also uses an optimal weight-to-power ratio. Combined with its exceptional maneuverability, the 6-cylinder Profi with S-Control 8 therefore ensures maximum versatility for all types of demanding operations in agriculture, horticulture and landscaping, as well as in forestry and municipal services.

S-Control 8 ™: Sample of efficiency
STEYR engineers have equipped the Profi 6-cylinder with a new, improved 8-stage powershift transmission, the most efficient in its class. The S-CONTROL gearbox offers a total of 24 gears divided into three groups for forward and reverse travel and includes a range of automatic functions that make the tractor more efficient and greatly improve operator comfort. The large overlap between groups means that there is rarely a need to change groups while working. Group B for example can be used from 4.3 to 18.1 km / h without interrupting traction and is ideal for most operations on arable land, grassland and during operations with the front loader.

Among the exclusive functions and features of the S-CONTROL 8  transmission there is also an accelerator pedal with kick-down function for situations in which maximum power is needed in a short time, as can happen during transport operations on steep roads. The Power Shuttle prevents traction losses during off-road direction changes while the S-Stop II function greatly simplifies the stops at road intersections and during operations with the front loader: When you stop at road intersections or when you stop stack bales, for example, the S-Stop II function intervenes on the clutch every time the brake is activated. The tractor then starts to move forward gradually as soon as the brake is released. This function allows the operator to use the tractor with maximum comfort and precision in the order of centimeters.

Productivity and versatility are of primary importance
With three-point hitch and four electronically controlled rear auxiliary hydraulic distributors, three ventral distributors and, on request, also the front lift, front PTO and front loader, the STEYR Profi 6-cylinder with S-Control 8  proves to be a highly productive and versatile partner for all types of operations. Quick Turn and Power Shuttle ensure maximum ease and comfort during use with a front loader and / or in confined spaces.

The extremely comfortable cabin allows access from both sides and has an air conditioning system and electrically adjustable multi-controller arm, it also has an extremely low noise level of only 69 dB (A) and an excellent view in every direction including also the sunroof. This cabin is therefore the ideal environment for long and productive working days. Thanks to the factory configuration with S-TECH touch screen monitor, ISOBUS II, ISOBUS III, S-Guide and S-Turn, the 6-cylinder STEYR Profi ensures that work can be completed with ease, precision and maximum automation. In addition to the comfort of the cab, the ‘heavy duty’ suspension system of the front axle also ensures excellent ride comfort and safety in the field and on the road.
