The success of a recent UK auction of 1960s tractors should be a prompt to see what’s lurking in the gloom of your old machinery shed.
The hood now has extended blue side panels giving more protection from dirt and debris, and the roof has adjustable LED working lights that enable operators to work into the dark comfortably, safely and productively.
The T7 series has a 6-cylinder engine that meets Tier 4B emissions standards without the need for exhaust gas recirculation or a diesel particulate filter; and its after-treatment system maintains combustion efficiency while reducing emissions. This has allowed New Holland to increase the upper power levels of both wheelbase versions of the T7 while further improving fuel efficiency.
A new headland turn sequencer (HTS II), controlled through the maker's standard IntelliView IV touchscreen, allows complex headland turns by recording a turn 'live' or creating one from a menu. Such tasks as selecting the target speed of the Auto Command transmission and switching to an implement camera view are programmable and editable, under the control of a single button.
With the new T7 comes Isobus Class III architecture which allows a compatible implement, i.e. the New Holland BigBaler, to control the tractor.
The updated eight-model range includes a new standard wheelbase model with peak power of 225hp, delivering more power and offering productivity-boosting features.
