Already ahead of the game with its methane-powered tractor, New Holland Agriculture has unveiled the first prototype of its Low Carbon Tractor (LoCT).
The three-model T7-S range is said to bean economic alternative to pre-owned machines in the same power class.
The T7.165S, T7.195S and T7.215S have maximum power outputs of 165, 190 and 210hp, respectively, powered by FTP Industrial’s proven Stage IV-compliant 6-cylinder FPT Engine with ECOBlue HI-eSCR technology.
The T7.165S is fitted with a 18 x 6 40km/hr Range Command semi-powershift transmission, suited to livestock and mixed applications, with yard-friendly dimensions and excellent manoeuvrability.
The T7.165S has the power to drive high-capacity mixer wagons, and is good for such tasks as mowing, baling, loading and transport. The tractor is loader-ready from the factory, has a wheelbase of 2.7m and is fitted with NH’s Horizon high roof cab with a visibility panel.
The 2.88m wheelbase T7.195S and T7.215S models are designed for more intensive use, using an 18 x 6 40km/hr Power Command full-powershift transmission; they suit multi-operator applications and in hire or contract fleets. The longer-wheelbase models have rear lift capacity of up to 10,463kg with optional 110mm rear lift rams.
The T7.165S comes with high hydraulic flow, an electronic loader joystick, automatic four-wheel drive and the option of CustomSteer, the latter making for optimum loader cycle times and fewer steering wheel rotations for best manoeuvrability.
Both the Range Command and Power Command transmissions can be specified with creep speeds and IntelliSteer RTK guidance to 1.5cm accuracy; a comprehensive telematics package is available for all models.
