New Holland Upgrades its Industry-Leading Horizon™ Cab on T6 and T7 Tractors 

New Holland, PA (July 29, 2013) - With interior cab noise levels as low as 69 dBA, the Horizon™ cab on T6 and T7 Series tractors offers operators a superior level of comfort. With the SideWinder™ II armrest, an industry benchmark for ergonomic operation, and over 63 square feet of cab glass, it is easy to understand how operators will be more productive. Following customer consultation, New Holland has launched an upgraded version for both the T6 and T7 tractors to further enhance comfort and intuitive, ergonomic use.

Enhanced day-long operating comfort
Driver comfort was at the heart of the Horizon™ Cab upgrade and new items have been included to enhance the operator's environment. The air conditioning controls, lighting control panel, additional storage slots and the radio have all been conveniently clustered within the roof lining. This enables operators to fine tune their controls on the move while still keeping their eyes on the road for enhanced safety.

Charging points have also been provided for mobile phones and other electrical items to enable operators to keep in touch at all times. A handy USB and auxiliary port are integrated into the radio for the connection of an MP3 player, while Bluetooth connectivity allows for easy phone pairing.

The Horizon™ Cab now features additional storage solutions, including elastic straps on the rear of the instructor seat, keeping paperwork tidy. An additional net for small items like gloves has also been added to the front of the instructor seat to provide ground-level access.

Auto Command™ tractors with the SideWinder™ II console come standard with a tinted rear window. This tint will protect operators from harsh rays when looking out the rear window at their implement during the height of summer. Additional protection is provided by an optional integrated rear sun blind, which is neatly stored away when not required.

Additionally, Auto Command tractors now come standard with the same steering wheel that T8 tractors utilize. This thicker wheel provides operators with a more comfortable and natural grip.  This stitched-leather steering wheel is optional on non-Auto Command tractors for those customers who want a touch of luxury. To complete their frills, a thick, New Holland-branded carpet can line the floor for the ultimate in farming comfort.

Upgraded CommandGrip™ multi-function handle: even easier operation 
New Holland listened to customers and installed backlit technology on the CommandGrip™ multi-function handle. The control icons are illuminated with LED lights to make selecting the desired function when working late into the night even easier. The buttons now also feature soft touch technology, which provides simple operation, reduces fatigue, and enhances the overall driving experience.

Larger IntelliView™ IV color touchscreen monitor optional
For operations which extensively use guidance, the optional, 10.3 inch IntelliView™ IV color touchscreen monitor will be the correct choice. Mounted to the SideWinder™ II armrest, operators can quickly and easily select from a whole host of parameters and follow guidance paths with greater ease. This larger screen puts tractor functions and guidance information on a single screen, which means there's no need to fill the cab with multiple monitors.  

A host of luxury options
A host of luxury options are available on both tractors, like enlarged heated mirrors that have an electronically adjustable top section. The manually adjustable wide-angle lower portion has been designed to counteract blind spots like mirrors found on heavy on-road vehicles. This provides operators with the best possible view when maneuvering in confined spaces, trimming roadsides, or for keeping an eye on the edges of trailing implements.

The Horizon™ Cab is standard on all T6 and T7 tractors.
