First UK showing of New Holland’s small tractor range set for Grassland events
New Holland’s new T5 range will make its UK debut at the upcoming Grassland UK event at the Bath and West Showground in Shepton Mallet.
The redefined T5 series is a new concept in future-focused, powerful livestock and mixed farming tractors. With a fully Tier 4A-compliant, 3.4 litre Common Rail turbo-charged engine and fully-integrated, factory-fitted loader with lift capacity up to 1,850kg, these machines can now be supplied with an all-new modular front linkage and PTO, adjustable shuttle sensitivity as well as new load sensing rear and mid mount remotes.
Visitors will also have an exclusive opportunity to see working demonstrations of the new T4 PowerStar. The small but versatile tractor is available in three models from 55hp – 75hp. With the VisionView™cab as standard, excellent operator comfort and visibility is guaranteed. It also features an outstanding lift capacity for a tractor of its size – comfortably managing 2,150kg.
Alongside this, there will be working demonstrations of the new T6 tractor, a popular choice among farmers, thanks not only to its power and ease of operation, but also its fuel efficiency. The T6 includes a powerful Tier 4A compliant engine featuring ECOBlue™ SCR technology. This delivers responsive power, uncompromised combustion cycles and 100 per cent clean, fresh air intake which, combined with Engine Idle Speed Management (EISM) technology, delivers unrivalled fuel consumption optimisation and maximum productivity.
There will be more Tier 4A-compliant technology on show at the silage clamp. New Holland Construction will be demonstrating their new W170C agricultural wheeled loader. This has a new 5 speed ECOSHIFT transmission with torque lock up - eliminating losses and reducing fuel consumption by up to 10% . As with the new range of T6 tractors, further fuel savings are also achieved by using the efficient Tier 4A- compliant engines with SCR technology.
Visitors will also be the first to see a public working demonstration of the new compact LM5020 / LM5030 models of telehandlers alongside their larger family members, the LM5040, LM5060 and LM5070.
In addition, show-goers will be able to take a look at the FR9060 self-propelled forage harvester in action. And, if that’s not enough, the New Holland BR6090, BR7060 and BB9060 balers will be hard at work completing the rest of the display.
New Holland will be taking part in all three Grassland events: Grassland UK 2012 at the Bath and West Showground on 10th May; FTMTA Grass and Muck 2012 at Gurteen Agriculture College near Birr on 17th May; Wales Grassland 2012 at Pentre Farm, Merthyr Cynog, Brecon on 8th June.
