The new DEUTZ-FAHR 4E Keyline Series features a modern driver zone designed in accordance with the latest standards for ergonomics. Conceived specifically for emerging new markets, the range consists of 4 models with power outputs from 45 to 60 HP and with 2 or 4-wheel drive. These machines are built tough but with contemporary, aggressive looks. With their sturdy construction, tried-and-tested engines and transmissions, and high-performance hydraulic rear lifts, these tractors can work effectively with many implements that would normally only be usable with much bigger, more powerful tractors.




The new 4E Series Keyline family is powered by engines of renowned reliability and fuel efficiency. All the engines offered feature a compact 3-cylinder architecture for uncompromised maneuverability.

The 4046 E Keyline is equipped with a 2700 cm³ naturally aspirated Simpson engine, with a maximum power output of 45 HP; the 4050 E Keyline, on the other hand, is powered by a turbocharged SDF 1000 Series engine, produces up to 50 HP. The same SDF 1000, but with the addition of an intercooler, powers the 4055 E Keyline and 4060 E Keyline models with a maximum power output of 55 and 60 HP respectively. All the engines offered are compliant with Stage III A emissions regulations. Compliance with these regulations has been attained without an exhaust after-treatment system – meaning no extra parts need additional maintenance or the use of additives. The extraordinary fuel efficiency of these engines means that the 55-litre tank is more than adequate to keep 4E Keyline tractors working uninterruptedly for hours on end even in the toughest conditions.

The modern, tapered design of the steel cowl, and the location of the engine air filter, situated under the cowl and out of the line of sight of the operator, ensure an unobstructed forward view.




Based on a 4-speed gearbox with two or three ranges, the transmission is offered in 8+2,12+3, 8+8, or 12+12 speed configurations to cater to even the most demanding applications. All models of the 4E Keyline range have a top speed of 34 km/h, for safe, rapid transport by road.

With the addition of the optional creeper gear, 4E Keyline tractors are also ideal for very low-speed applications, capable of ground speeds of just 500 meters per hour at maximum engine speed in the lowest gear.

The generously sized dry clutch with state-of-the-art pedal linkage is comfortable and effortless to use, for setting off smoothly even when working with heavy, high-draft force implements.

To extend the already impressive capabilities of these tractors in standard configuration, a special set of waterproof seals is available for working in particularly difficult conditions such as rice paddies.




The comprehensive PTO package equipping the DEUTZ-FAHR 4E Series Keyline is extraordinarily versatile, for outstanding productivity whether working with high or low-power demand implements. In addition to the classic 540 rpm speed mode, the PTO is also available as an optional variant with 1000 rpm, 540 ECO, or 540 rpm reverse modes. The PTO is engaged and disengaged with a dual action dry plate clutch operated progressively with a practical hand lever, for starting even implements with high rotating masses smoothly and gradually.


Hydraulic System


The open center hydraulic system is fed by a gear pump with a maximum output of 31 l/min (or 27 l/min on the 4045 E Keyline), and features 2-way (or, as an option, 4-way) rear distributors.

For superior comfort, all models are equipped with hydraulic power steering fed by a dedicated pump that is completely separate from the main pump, for impeccably smooth steering action even at low engine speeds and while the lift or hydraulic distributors are in use. The rear lift (with Cat. III three-point linkage) has an impressive maximum lift capacity of 1600 kg (or 1250 kg for the 4045 E Keyline) and is equipped as standard with the Easylift system.




The rear axle is available in “Light” and “Heavy Duty” variants. On 4-wheel drive versions, models up to 55 HP feature a Dana front axle; while 60 HP models are fitted with an original SDF front axle.

The possibility of fitting tires up to 650 mm in diameter at the front and 675 mm at the rear offers impressive ground clearance, making 4E Keyline tractors even more versatile. The excellent agility of these tractors is the result of a compact wheelbase – just 1950 mm for 4-wheel drive versions and 1920 mm for 2-wheel drive models – combined with an impressive steering angle (55° and 51° for two and four-wheel drive versions respectively), allowing for very tight headland turns. A Girling brake system and a parking brake, both of which are mechanically operated, ensure dependable stopping and holding power.




With every detail designed in accordance with the latest standards for ergonomics, the driver zone is comfortable and functional and offers excellent forward visibility. The all-flat platform facilitates access, while the adjustable driver seat, offered as standard, includes an effective mechanical suspension system adjustable to suit the weight of the operator. Intelligently organized controls and a modern analog instrument cluster ensure that all the main operating parameters of the machine are clearly visible at all times, maximizing productivity.

These tractors are available with a robust two-pillar rear ROPS structure and steel handrails on the rear mudguards.
