Frames and Axle
What’s more important to you—stability or maneuverability? With a New Holland T8 Series tractor, you don’t have to choose.
THE STABILITY OF A LONG WHEELBASE
With the longest wheelbase in the industry, T8 tractors give you a smooth ride that makes a real difference in your productivity and comfort. It’s all due to the unprecedented 11’4”-long wheelbase. It adds exceptional stability not only in the field, but also on the road at high transport speeds. This stability means you can also make full use of the 18,000-pound rear lift capacity—without the need for the heavy front ballast that conventional tractors require.
The precise, sculpted frame of T8 tractors adds more than style to your operation. It allows for outstanding turning performance so you can make sharp turns in tight spaces and faster headland turns.
TERRAGLIDE™ SUSPENDED FRONT AXLE
The improved and patented TerraGlide™ suspended front axle provides the ultimate in traction, stability and smoothness. It’s standard on models equipped with the 31-mph transmission and optional on other models. This patented axle suspension system uses a simple design with fewer moving parts than other brands and doesn’t compromise the turning radius—a significant advantage when maneuvering in tight spaces or turning at the headland.
