NH tractor looks pretty in pink

While it seems increasingly common to see ‘black editions’ of many tractor brands – or as with one Scandinavian manufacturer, a plethora of colours – it’s not so common for the New Holland brand.

Recognisable for its iconic blue colour scheme, the Italian head-quartered company is sponsoring this year’s Giro d’Italia cycle race that kicks off on May 6th in Budapest and finishes off 21 stages and 3,410km later in Verona on May 25.

Stopping off on route in multiple rural communities, a shocking pink T5.140 Dynamic Command tractor will certainly cut a splash on the 105th running of the event.

While not immediately considered a must-have colour for agriculture, the heavily customised ‘wrapped’ machine is inspired by the pink jersey (maglia rosa) worn by the race’s general classification leader.

The company says the use of pink, and its association with the sporting excellence of a winner, “denotes the drive, performance and staying power needed to win a Grand Tour – the same qualities undertaken by New Holland tractors in fields around the globe to reach its farming goals”.
