New Hol­land an­nounces the T3F com­pact se­ries of spe­cialty trac­tors

Farms & Farm Machinery - - News -

New Hol­land Agri­cul­ture has launched the T3F trac­tor se­ries, which the com­pany is call­ing “the first ever com­pact spe­cial­ity trac­tors”.

With power op­tions rang­ing from 50hp-72hp, the four mod­els in the se­ries will be only 1.35m wide, will weigh in at 22kg, and be able to per­form turns within a ra­dius of 3.4m.

The new trac­tors, avail­able in March, will com­plete a se­ries of New Hol­land’s ‘ex­ten­sive spe­cialty of­fer­ing’, which in­cludes the T4000F/N/V range.

New Hol­land prod­uct man­ager for trac­tors un­der 100hp Mark Crakan­thorp says the T3F se­ries will cre­ate many more op­tions for spe­cial­ists.

“This ground-break­ing con­cept is set to open up new mar­ket op­por­tu­ni­ties in spe­cial­ist or­chard, nut and viti­cul­ture op­er­a­tions,” Crakan­thorp says.

“Op­er­a­tions will no longer have to trade off size for power. The new T3F will sat­isfy power de­mands in in­ten­sive ap­pli­ca­tions.

“The im­pres­sive hy­draulic of­fer­ing is per­fect for spe­cial­ist tasks, and the com­pact pack­age will pro­tect valu­able crop trees against po­ten­tially dam­ag­ing rub­bing and brush­ing.”

A fo­cus of the new T3F se­ries is the S8000 en­gine, which New Hol­land says will be able to be tai­lored to each farmer’s needs.

New Hol­land says the 3-cylin­der, 2.9-litre, tur­bocharged and in­ter­cooled en­gines are ideal for its tar­get buy­ers.

“Fuel-ef­fi­cient and re­li­able op­er­a­tion is cou­pled with ex­cel­lent in-field per­for­mance,” the com­pany says.

“Max­i­mum torque of up to 295Nm is avail­able to­gether with up to an im­pres­sive 34 per cent of torque backup.

“No mat­ter how steep the in­cline or de­mand­ing the ter­rain, the T3F will keep go­ing. More­over, all en­gines are fully com­pat­i­ble with B100, 100 per cent biodiesel.”

New Hol­land can also tai­lor the trans­mis­sion to suit each buyer’s needs.

The com­pany says the hy­draulic sys­tem is also a stand­out fea­ture of the new trac­tor.

“The T3F ben­e­fits from two fixed-dis­place­ment hy­draulic pumps de­liv­er­ing a to­tal of 84L/min of flow. A 52L/min pump is ded­i­cated to HPL func­tions and two rear hy­draulic re­mote cou­plers,” it says.

Ad­di­tion­ally, the en­tire T3F range will be fit­ted with New Hol­land’s Lift-O-Matic sys­tem, which al­lows op­er­a­tors to lift and re­turn rear mounted im­ple­ments to a pre-set height by us­ing a rocker switch.
