The loader is driven by the latest generation 55 kW (75 HP) Deutz turbo diesel engine. It meets the requirements of the exhaust gas level stage V by using a diesel oxidation catalyst and a diesel particle filter. Because all the components in the hydrostatic drive are perfectly matched to each other, fuel consumption is converted into performance economically and effectively. The standard hydraulic fan drive reduces noise development. It is also available with an optional reverse function.
The maintenance-free articulated steering makes the loader more manoeuvrable than any front loader tractor. The inner turning circle is only 1.75 m – ideal for use in narrow barns and halls. With an optional top speed of 35 km/h, the 6680 Z is also perfectly equipped for interplant uses.
The SCV-Plus cabin (Silence/Comfort/View) offers ideal driving ergonomics, perfect space and excellent all-round visibility. A low version of the cab is also available, so that entry into old buildings with a low entrance height is possible without any problems.

    Cab / Operations

    New SCV-Plus-Cabin: Silence, Comfort, View
    Schaffer6680Z Cabin
    The 6680 Z is equipped with an SCV-Plus cabin. Even at first glance, the tidy dashboard, ergonomic operating elements and the new colour co-ordinated range of switches show that this is the highest quality.
    SCV stands for ‘Silence, Comfort, View’. In the development of the SCV-Plus cabin, these ideas have been taken one step further. The operating elements are arranged in a more ergonomic way. The joystick is more comfortable to hold, additional functions speed up how you work. The extensive glass area offers the very best all-round visibility.
    The ignition switch, along with the control system for the air-conditioning and heating systems is housed in a new console right next to the joystick. Additional, larger air outlets and removable side panels ensure the perfect supply of fresh air. With the new SCV-Plus cabin, the driver has a completely new feeling of ergonomics and comfort – nothing to stand in the way of a long working day.
