New Holland has launched the T7 Heavy Duty (HD) tractor with Precision Land Management Intelligence (PLM) to the New Zealand market.

Part of New Holland’s 11 model T7 range, the new T7 HD is said to offer power, agility and versatility via the three models in the 250 to 300 rated horsepower sector. At the same time, integrating the brand-new Horizon Ultra™ cab and next-generation PLM™ Intelligence.

New Holland product segment manager – mixed farming and livestock, Ben Mitchell says the new tractors were created from the first-hand feedback from operators who listed comfort, space and connectivity as must haves.

“The T7 HD is ideal for operators who need to multi-task in a variety of fields and transport applications,” Mitchell explains. “Alongside being remotely connected to dealers and support services, to increasing overall efficiency and profitability.”

The new generation of T7.275, T7.290 and T7.315 are not very different visually to the current offering. However, the lowered rear fenders boost visibility, while a new 24 LED work light package improves things for early starts or late finishes.

Said to be 7.5% larger, offering 11% more glass area and with a reduced noise level of only 66dB(A), the redesigned cabin offers more legroom and areas for storage.

To the left, there is enclosed storage area with power sockets behind the passenger seat that now gets a flat back.

Meanwhile beneath the cabin, a 12-litre chilled cool-box is created thanks to the rear fender redesign.

To the right, the new Sidewinder armrest-taken from the T8 Genesis, comes complete with IntelliView 12 display and a host of customisable functions. The more open storage areas are complimented by the seat, which has a greater degree of swivel, again due to the mudguard redesign.

The conventional dashboard is gone and replaced by the CentreView, self-levelling steering wheel mounted display, which maintains its horizontal orientation as the wheel is turned.

Full climate control offers zone selection and 35% more output than the previous setup. Meanwhile, the optional AutoComfort seat adds a climate control function to extract moisture on hot days or warm your backside on cold mornings.

New Holland says the T7 HD tractor is available for purchase now, with delivery expected on farm by mid-2022.
