Deutz Fahr 6135C RV Shift: Stepless powershift?

With the launch of its new 114hp-136hp 6C tractor range Deutz Fahr has taken the unusual decision to add simulated steps to its homebuilt CVT gearbox. Potential purchasers now have the option of choosing from the company’s confusingly titled ‘Powershift’ manual stickshifter, its in-house built TTV stepless box or this latest variant – the RV Shift.
