When the 135hp (max.165hp with EPM) tractor was launched at the French SIMA show last year, it was only available with the Electro Command semi-powershift 'box.

It is now the second six-cylinder model in the T6 range to be offered with Dynamic Command. Previewed at the same French show in February 2019, the 145hp (max.175hp with EPM) T6.180 came from the start with Dynamic Command and Auto Command gearbox options.

The in-house developed 24fx24r Dynamic Command semi-powershift provides eight-step push-button gear changes. With Dual Clutch technology and three push-button robotised range changes, the gearbox enables shifting between eight gears under load, without having to change ranges.

Powered by a Stage V NEF 6-cyl 6.7-litre engine, the T6.160 Dynamic Command, which comes in a compact 2.6m wheelbase and 10.5t GVW, will be available in the second half of 2021.
