SMARTTRAX™ II AND TIRES

SmartTrax™ II: High traction, low compaction

Put one of New Holland’s five T9 Series SmartTrax™ tractors to work for you and you get the benefit of 2,800 square inches of ground contact per track module for a total footprint of 11,200 square inches. That maximizes traction, flotation and ride smoothness, while reducing ground pressure and compaction for minimal surface damage, and that improves soil fertility and water drainage, maximizing your yields.

LSW Singles: Low compaction, narrow-width roading

The next generation of tire solutions comes with Low Side Wall technology— powerful, rugged, balanced, and power hop resistance all wrapped up in a single tire solution. While increasing the rim diameter but not increasing the tire diameter, a lower side wall results in a tire with more stability for heavy pulling and roading applications and high ground area contact — yielding more productive results for your operation.

High Flotation or Row Crop Duals, Triples: Less compaction and fuel usage

Tailor your dual or triple tires to your operation, whether it’s roading, heavy pulling or row crop applications. High flotation duals feature an IF rating that produces a stronger tire to carry heavy loads at lower tire pressure. This results in less compaction and fuel usage. Row crop applications require the proper tire to decrease compaction and maintain traction throughout the tire’s lifetime, all to improve yields year after year.

Exclusive SmartTrax™ design: Performance advantages that just keep on pulling.

New Holland SmartTrax II gives your T9 Series tractor the lightest footprint and the heaviest pull, resulting in the ultimate-productivity tractor. SmartTrax II is a choice that best suits your terrain, your applications and your budget. And, only New Holland offers you two track lug options — the two-inch agricultural lug tread or the exclusive deep-traction lug tread with a 2.6-inch tread depth for added traction and pulling capability in very wet, loose, or soft soils.
1. The largest drive wheel in the industry measures a massive 56.3 inches in diameter — that’s 30% larger than the nearest competitor
2. 13 to 14 drive lugs are fully engaged at all times, eliminating slippage between the drive wheel and track. This also reduces the load per lug compared to other designs, which increases belt durability. More power is transmitted through more drive lugs for better power distribution and extended track life
3. The axle position of the SmartTrax II design results in a low center of gravity, which improves total vehicle Stability
4. Designed with no mid-roller directly under the track module pivot point to reduce over-center ride impact for maximum operator comfort

Rugged durability, less maintenance, more uptime

• All bearings are sealed and lubricated for a lifetime with annual maintenance
• No daily greasing as there are no grease fittings
• Check the bogey and idler wheel oil levels only once a year and change at 5,000 hours
• No need for complex alignment adjustment mechanisms that need to be adjusted, serviced, and replaced. The SmartTrax II rigid undercarriage shaft bores are machined in one operation to ensure excellent alignment between bores, plus New Holland uses straight steel cables in the heavy-duty belts

Low Side Wall technology: Solutions for high flotation, heavy pulling, and roading applications all in a single tire.

New Holland T9 Series tractors can now be equipped with Low Side Wall (LSW) tires to meet the new demands of producers looking for high flotation, heavy pulling, and a narrow overall package for roading applications. LSW tires feature the ability to maintain high load ratings at 40% lower inflation psi values, opening new productivity value to a single tire combination. The larger rim diameter—without increasing the overall LSW tire diameter—results in a more stable tire for the toughest applications.

When equipped with LSW1250/35R46 singles, the overall width measures about 150 inches or 12.5 feet. This narrow roading width, in combination with a light footprint, provides a middle ground when choosing between SmartTrax and high-flotation duals. Low Side Wall tires design features a larger rim diameter without increasing the overall tire diameter, providing more stability for heavy pull and roading applications.

As the aspect ratio of a tire increases so does the chance for bouncing during roading and power-hop in in-field heavy pull applications. LSW tires eliminate those chances with a lower aspect ratio.

With LSW singles, total psi on the ground is comparable to high-flotation duals on tractors with similar gross vehicle weight — but yields a nearly 20% reduction in overall tire width.

The Dual and Triple threat: Tire combinations to meet your row crop or high-flotation needs.

New Holland T9 Series tractors utilize the Row Crop frame on models up to the T9.565. When used in combination with IF or VF Row Crop tires, they maintain load carrying capacities at lower air pressure ratings — producing less compaction, less fuel consumption to promote bottom line returns. High flotation duals can also be equipped with this technology, further improving fuel consumption in heavy-pull applications. Triples distribute the overall weight of the T9 Series tractor over even more area, decreasing compaction for your specific application.

Row Crop Frame and Row Crop Duals are perfectly matched for row-crop applications

Spring tillage, planting, post emergence side-dressing, grain carting, roading, and fall primary tillage—there is no application that the T9 Series tractor can’t handle.

High Power Wide Frame and High Flotation Duals provide the power to where it’s needed

Heavy-pull applications call for the High Power Frame matched with high-flotation tires. Tire designs featuring improved traction capabilities are made for these kinds of applications. Grain cart applications with VF and IF dual tires (Row Crop Frame shown) allow for high-speed, low-pressure inflation, which lessens soil compaction while boosting fuel economy. Through less compaction, the T9 Series tractor improves your harvest and yields the following year.

How to decide on the best tracks or tire offering in the industry

Several factors go into selecting the best way to equip T9 Series tractors. Consider your application and primary needs. Is total flotation and heavy pull a primary consideration? What if roading width and top roading speed are your primary requirements? Use the chart on this page to help determine the best fit. More New Holland leaf symbols means a more favorable solution. In this example, LSW singles, duals, triples or SmartTrax™ II should be considered on a T9.565 ballasted to the application. Choose full ballast in heavy-pull applications and medium ballast for row crops. You might also consider Increased Flexion (IF) or Very Increased Flexion (VF) tires that provide similar load-carrying capacity at lower psi levels.
