Segment-leading deluxe VisionView™ cab: outstanding operator comfort and unsurpassed visibility

New Holland knows that operator comfort is a prerequisite for optimum productivity, especially during long and demanding days. The deluxe VisionView™ cab, also available on the T5 range, was designed around the operator using advanced virtual reality techniques to offer unparalleled ergonomic excellence. The spacious interior is a full 20% larger than its predecessor, for even more comfortable operation. All controls fall perfectly to hand for operators of all shapes and sizes. The principal controls, including the electronic draft control (EDC) mouse, and hydraulic remote levers, amongst others, have been placed to the right of the operator in an ergonomic ‘Command Arc’ to reduce fatigue and increase precision.

A dedicated foot pedal to infinitely adjust the position of the steering column and integrated instrument cluster is located at the base of the column, which enables precision placement whilst in the actual driving position.

The curved opening rear side glasses offer a clear line of sight for rear-mounted off-set mowers, comfortable visibility is further assisted by the 15° of seat swivel. The repositioned exhaust muffler, now in line with the A-pillar, significantly enhances visibility with a perfect view of the inner tyre wall, ideal when working in narrow row-crop applications.

An all-new dual zone air conditioning system features 10 individually positionable vents, which all deliver even flow thanks to dual-zone technology for optimal total-body comfort. The B-pillar mounted controls fall perfect to hand, and can be intuitively adjusted whilst on the move.

The deluxe VisionView™ cab has been designed with traditional livestock operations in mind, with an overall height as low as 2559 mm (with 420/85R30), enabling the T4 full access to even the lowest sheds.

Tailored transmission offering: choose the transmission to suit your needs

The T4 range benefits from an extensive transmission offering which means operations can tailor the transmission to suit their individual needs. The 12x12 Synchro Shuttle and 20x12 Synchro Shuttle with creep variants are available with a mechanical shuttle on both cabbed and ROPS variants, and offer get on a go rugged simplicity. The column mounted shuttle enables operators to change direction without having to remove their hand from the steering wheel.

All models can be equipped with electro-hydraulic, column-mounted Power Shuttle versions of the 12x12 and 20x20 Creeper transmissions, the latter boasting speeds as low as 200 metres/hour, perfect for specialist applications such as hand planting and weeding. The top of the range Dual Command 24x24 variant allows operators to tailor forward speed to precisely match the task in hand. An ergonomic Power Clutch button is located on the rear of the gear shift lever and means operators can change gear without depressing the foot clutch, perfect when working in uneven, cultivated fields. The electro-hydraulic, column-mounted Power Shuttle offers effortless, fingertip shuttling..

Adjustable shuttle sensitivity: regulated direction control

Three aggressiveness-settings for the ergonomic column mounted Power Shuttle can be swiftly and easily regulated via a dedicated button on the left hand ‘B’ pillar. The soft setting is perfect for field activities such as baling, medium for standard work and the highly sensitive setting has been specifically designed to offer near-instantaneous direction changes.

Powerful Tier 4A compliant engines for outstanding productivity and efficiency

T4 models are fitted with the 3.4 litres, Common Rail F5C engine, developed in partnership with FPT Industrial, and benefit from state-of-the-art Cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation technology (CEGR) for Tier 4A compliance. This is in full alignment with New Holland’s T4A roadmap: due to their reduced cooling demands, machines producing under 120hp are fitted with CEGR technology. These engines deliver between 86 – 107hp and offer outstanding transient response thanks to the precision fuelling technology of the Common Rail engines. Productivity in demanding conditions is further enhanced with maximum torque of up to 444Nm and up to an impressive 35% torque rise.

This engine has been specifically designed for agricultural operations, and sustained maximum power is available through the range from 1900-2300rpm, the most common operating band, to deliver outstanding flexibility in the majority of tasks. Furthermore, all engines are compliant with B20, 20% biodiesel.

Powerful hydraulic packages: up to 100 litres/minute of flow

New Holland knows that a one size fits all hydraulic offering is not suitable for these models. The 76 litre/minute option, which features a dedicated 48 litre/minute pump for hydraulic application (28 litres/minute for service) is perfect for standard farming applications. Farmers that carry out the most demanding hydraulic applications, such as bale wrapping, will opt for the MegaFlow variant, which boasts 100 litre/minute of flow, with a dedicated 64 litre/minutes of hydraulic flow explicitly for the main pump to ensure uniform performance in even the most demanding conditions. Furthermore, a 36 litre/minute services pump ensures steering remains light and responsive even during intensive rear linkage work. Up to three rear, and two mid-mount hydraulic remote valves can be specified, which are all controlled from the comfort of the cab.

Rear lift capacity has been significantly enhanced, with maximum lift capacity of up to 3800kg. Traditional operations will opt for the award-winning Lift-O-Matic™ Plus, mechanical draft control, system, which enables operators to return an implement to a pre-set working depth courtesy of an ergonomic lever and constantly adjust the depth thanks to the same lever situated on the Command Arc. Electronic draft control will become the default choice for customers that carry out extensive field cultivation, such as ploughing. The ergonomic mouse offers fingertip control of all key parameters including draft and depth control.

Flexible PTO options

The T4 range is available with a choice of PTO speed options: owners can choose between mechanical and electro hydraulic engagement, and from a whole host of PTO speed options: from the entry level 540, right through to the most advanced 540/540E/1000/Ground Speed variant, the latter is only available on cabbed models. All PTO speeds are selected from the comfort of the cab or operator platform for efficient engagement. Fuel economy if further enhanced with the addition of the 540E option, which is available at a mere 1900 erpm, for reduced fuel consumption and a quieter operating environment.

Module front linkage and PTO: enhanced operating flexibility

New Holland knows that in order to remain competitive in a highly dynamic market place, farmers prize operating flexibility. Available on all orders as of June 2013, the T4 front linkage has been engineered by design to respond to this requirement. Available in three different configuration: fabricated front linkage only with a maximum lift capacity of 1850 kg, front PTO only and the modular chassis integrated, casted front linkage and PTO variant, operations can specify a tractor to suit their individual needs. Moreover, if a change of business focus was to occur, all options can be easily retrofitted by authorised New Holland dealers.

Flexible tyre offering: maximum tyre size of 540/65R34

A vast tyre offering will enable farmers to specify their T4 to suit their individual needs, whether by fitting 12.4 R36 row crop tyres to protect high value salad vegetables, or the very largest 540/65/R34 for increased traction and reduced infield compaction.

Rugged ROPS option: comfortable and safe operating environment with optional FOPS protection canopy

Operations that require traditional, rugged productivity will select the ROPS variant. All configurations, except those fitted with a Dual Command™ transmission, can be specified in this format, which can be further enhanced with a fully FOPS (Fall on Protection System) compliant canopy. The foldable ROPS is the perfect choice for operations with the lowest shed doors.

Operators will benefit from the same operating environment and ergonomic layout as cabbed models. ROPSs variants have been further enhanced by the addition of hardwearing, weather resistant materials to ensure ultimate durability in even the harshest operating environments.
