Tractors get smart ’n’ savvy
Also at the Farm Progress Show, New Holland launched its innovative and smart Auto CommandTM Continuously Variable Transmission on its flagship T9 Series tractors.
The four-model range being introduced to the Australian market include three agricultural models, and one scraper model. The line-up develops maximum outputs ranging from 450hp to the 615hp, the most powerful CVT tractor on the market today.
Sean Lennon, New Holland Head of the Tractor product line said the T9 Auto CommandTM was ideal for the more demanding customers who required an all-round performance from their high-powered tractors.
“Cash crop farmers will appreciate its powerful performance in PTO applications such as grain cart and large planters,” he said.
“Big dairy and livestock operations will find handling silage packing and haulage operations much easier with the Auto Command transmission. Intuitive and easy to operate, this multiple-use tractor brings high quality and reliability to large-scale, professional farming operations.”
The Auto CommandTM transmission provides seamless speed changes with the most intuitive operating logic in the market, a logic that is already proven on other New Holland tractor ranges.
The ease of use and commonality is an obvious advantage for farming operations that regularly use seasonal labour and where there are multiple ranges of tractors.
The award-winning SideWinderTM II armrest with its fully integrated IntelliViewTM IV ultra wide color touchscreen and CommandGripTM multifunction handle offer supremely comfortable and easy operation.
The CommandGripTM handle also uses force-based logic to control the tractor’s speed and acceleration.
