Trac­tors get smart ’n’ savvy

Countryman - - MACHINERY AND TECHNOLOGY -

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.
