New Holland, Pa. (August 29, 2017) – New Holland Agriculture’s T5 Dual Command™ tractor offers advanced features to improve mowing and haymaking tasks. The 24x24 Dual Command transmission helps operators select the gear needed to adapt to changing crop conditions, the VisionView™ cab option provides a comfortable working environment at any time of year, and the spacious ROPS platform is also available for customers who prefer open-air operation.
“New Holland’s new T5 Dual Command is a deluxe new tractor offering with more advanced features and capabilities designed with the operator in mind,” said Daniel Valen, Director of Product Marketing for New Holland North America. “Whether in search of a basic utility tractor or a daily workhorse, the T5 provides ultimate versatility for jobs ranging from hauling wagons and raking hay, to feeding cows and scraping the barnyard.”
24x24 Dual Command with power shuttle
The Dual Command transmission helps operators get through tough situations while mowing or baling with ease, providing the flexibility to power down with the click of a button to work through a heavy windrow or thick patch of crop, without the operator needing to lift his/her foot.
The PowerClutch button on the gear lever reduces operator effort and fatigue by enabling the operator to shift through each of the 4 gears with a simple button press during shifting instead of using the foot clutch. In situations where the Hi-Lo reduction isn’t enough to help power through those tough conditions, the PowerClutch button enables the operator to quickly shift gears and power through. This transmission provides an affordable alternative to the more premium Electro Command™ semi-powershift transmission option for T5 tractors.
The Dual Command transmission comes with an electrohydraulic shuttle lever designed to enhance efficiency. The lever enables users to make quick and easy direction changes and is equipped with three different settings to tailor the tractor’s forward/reverse transition to the operator’s preference, or the task at hand. Choose the less aggressive setting for smooth shifting, the standard setting during transport, and the most aggressive setting for the fastest engagement time.
Advanced VisionView experience
The steering column features both tilt and telescopic adjustments to provide enhanced comfort while operating and easy-to-reach electronic switches for engagement of the 4WD and rear differential lock. Complete with rear fender-mounted PTO and rear hitch control switches for easier implementation hookups, these features combine with the standard comfort features and ergonomics of the VisionView cab to create an advanced operator experience.
Open-air ROPS Comfort
ROPS platform models with the Command Arc console provide exceptional comfort. The Lift-OMatic
™ Plus lever provides additional ease of operation enabling single lever control of the rear
