New Holland has improved its popular T5 tractor range – one of the best sellers in its power bracket in Europe – to not only meet Tier 4B emissions regulations, but also to incorporate a host of new features designed to boost comfort, efficiency and productivity.
The new T5 Tier 4B range has been re-engineered to meet the evolving needs of livestock farmers and those who require a nimble, mid-powered tractor for dairy and mixed farming.
“New Holland has traditionally been very strong in serving this sector of agriculture with tractors in this power bracket, and the T5 Tier 4B developments are designed to build on that,” explains Sean Lennon, Head of Tractors, Telehandlers and PLM Product Management.
“While upgrading the T5 tractors’ emissions systems to meet Tier 4B regulations, New Holland has taken the opportunity to add further developments that enhance the machines’ versatility and capabilities. Styling has also been brought into line with that of the higher powered T6 and T7 range.”
New Holland Agriculture have also launched the new T6 all-purpose tractor series. The company says the T6 Series combines ultimate power with advanced technology to deliver unmatched comfort, visibility and manoeuvrability together with more power and performance. The new range also introduces New Holland’s sleek new tractor family styling.
The new T6 complies with Tier 4B emissions standards with New Holland’s ECOBlue™ Hi-eSCR (High-Efficiency Selective Catalytic Reduction) technology. With this after-treatment system the engine breathes clean air, optimising combustion, torque rise and fuel efficiency.
The new T6 engines achieve better performance by maximising power output from each cylinder. The new engine control unit brings the engine to maximum torque faster and holds through to the lower rpm longer, outperforming the previous generation’s engine.
The Engine Power Management develops more power and torque according to the load on the transmission, hydraulics and PTO. On the T6.165 it can deliver up to 33 extra horsepower when it is needed to maintain performance. Engine Speed Management ensures the engine speed is maintained under changing loads, for applications that require a constant PTO speed or to maintain a fixed forward speed in difficult terrain.
