NEW HOLLAND, PA. (April 19, 2011) - New Holland introduced three compact track loaders in the new 200 Series. The new machines feature best-in-class forward dump height and reach - boosting operator profits and productivity.
"The New Holland 200 Series compact track loaders have been designed from the ground up, based on input from customers across North America," said Dave December, product marketing manager at New Holland. "These machines are built to tackle the toughest construction, landscaping and agricultural applications."
The New Holland C232 and C238 compact track loaders feature the patented vertical lift Super Boom® design, delivering the industry's best forward dump height and reach.
"The New Holland Super Boom® loader arm design provides superior productivity," December said. "Unlike competitive models, they can reach higher and further to load material to the center of trucks, finishing jobs faster."
The new self-leveling bucket feature on each model also allows attachments to maintain the preset location throughout the lift cycle.
Customers with varied levels of operator experience will appreciate how easy work can be completed with the self-leveling and Glide Ride features. For long load and carry operations, the optional Glide Ride feature on the New Holland C232 and C238 compact track loaders ensures a smooth ride over the roughest terrain.
The overall width is just 79 inches (200 cm) on the C232 and C238 models equipped with the 18-inch (46 cm) tracks, to make it easier to transport these machines on a standard trailer.
New radial lift model introduced
New Holland also introduced the C227 model, a radial lift machine. This design provides excellent digging performance for landscaping and construction applications.
The new 200 Series compact track loaders feature superior flotation, traction and stability. "Operators are productive in sloppy, sandy or muddy conditions," December said. "Plus, the low ground pressure provides maximum flotation and minimum soil disturbance, making New Holland compact track loaders ideal for landscapers."
The dump angle on the new 200 Series compact track loaders has been increased to a best-in-class 53 degrees. This lets operators empty the bucket faster, resulting in faster cycle times and increased productivity.
The New Holland 200 Series cab, with dozens of upgrades from our L Series, provides a superior working environment. It is one of the widest, most comfortable cabs in the industry, providing more head and foot room, and offering twice the visibility in critical zones," says December.
Stability is an important part of being productive on the job site. Because the rigid undercarriage and machine weight is distributed over a large area, New Holland compact track loaders provide a stable ride over the roughest working surfaces. The frame sheds material away from the track, minimizing downtime. Undercarriage components include permanently lubed idlers and rollers, and a strong, steel-belted rubber track. With fewer moving parts than a suspension track system, maintenance costs are significantly reduced.
Attachments increase versatility
"New Holland offers more than 50 compact track loader attachments to handle countless construction, landscaping or agricultural jobs," December said. "From digging, lifting and hammering, to trenching, planing or drilling, operators can count on New Holland attachments to boost their productivity. Plus, our new loaders feature a hydraulic heavy-duty coupler for customers who frequently change attachments."
