Tractor takes out top award

Written by 

NEW HOLLAND has won the Tractor of the Year 2013 award in the Best of Specialised category with the T4060F. 

Local distributor CB Norwood says the T4060F (106hp) is the top model in the T4000F/N/V series, a narrow design for vineyards and orchards.

The T4060F, together with the entire T4000F/N/V range, is aimed at best efficiency. Various features enable growers to tailor their tractor to needs: a range of transmissions can be selected, and all ‘F’ models have the maker’s SuperSteer front axle (turning radius 76°). 

A 100% mechanical parking lock makes for safety and a new PTO ratio gives efficiency and a 5% fuel saving. 

Hydraulic mid-mounts are controlled by an ergonomic joystick; the system has a hydraulic motor function with 100% priority and a free return. 

The new electro-hydraulic mid-mount valves are controlled via a joystick which manages eight outputs.  

The Blue Cab is redesigned, and all key tractor functions are grouped together “for intuitive and immediate operation”.
