New Holland has introduced its next generation of hardworking utility tractors, the T4 Series. This tailored offering produces between 84 to 106 horsepower thanks to powerful 4-cylinder engines with Common Rail technology and a Cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation system to meet Tier 4A compliance. Impressive features include the deluxe VisionView™ cab, the ergonomic CommandArc™ console, and distinctive, eye-catching New Holland styling.
“The comfort and convenience of the T4 Series is well-suited to the demands of livestock and dairy farmers who carry out extensive hay and forage and feeding applications, as well as for diversified operations requiring a highly productive, mid-range utility tractor,” says Michael Cornman, New Holland Dairy and Livestock Marketing Segment Leader.
A comfortable choice: the deluxe VisionView™ cab
Operator comfort is a prerequisite for optimum productivity, especially during long, demanding days. The deluxe VisionView™ cab, which is also available on the T5 Series of tractors, was designed with operators in mind. Using state-of-the-art virtual reality techniques, T4 Series tractors provide ergonomic excellence as a standard feature. All controls fall perfectly to hand for operators of all shapes and sizes. The most frequently used controls, including the throttle, PTO, and hydraulic remote levers, have been placed to the right of the operator on the ergonomic CommandArc™ console to reduce fatigue and increase operator precision.
A dedicated foot pedal to adjust the position of the steering column is located on the floor between the clutch and brake pedals. This pedal provides operators with a comfortable driving position with an unobstructed view of the easy-to-read instrument cluster.
The curved, opening rear side windows deliver a clear line of sight for implements like rear-mounted off-set mowers. Visibility is further assisted by 15° of seat swivel. The repositioned exhaust muffler, now in line with the A-pillar, also enhances visibility with a perfect view of the inner tire wall, which is ideal when working in narrow row-crop applications.
An all-new dual zone air conditioning system features 10 individually positionable vents that deliver even flow for optimal total body comfort, thanks to dual-zone technology. The B-pillar mounted controls for air speed and temperature can be intuitively adjusted while on the move.
The deluxe VisionView™ cab has been designed with traditional livestock operations in mind, with an overall height as low as 102.5 inches (2,603 mm) (with 420/85R30 tires), enabling a T4 Series tractor full access to low buildings.
