New Holland has extended its acclaimed all-purpose T6 tractor range with a new six-cylinder model, the T6.160 Dynamic Command. This tractor combines the high performance of the proven NEF engine with New Holland’s exclusive Dual Clutch and CVT technology to deliver high efficiency and productivity – all in a compact package with a 2.6m wheelbase and 10.5t gross vehicle weight.
T6 series global product marketing manager Benjamin Davies said New Holland had a proud legacy in this segment.
“It started more than 30 years ago when we launched the first compact six-cylinder tractor on the market, the 7810,” he added. “It was a true game changer, and the new T6.160 Dynamic Command builds on this rich heritage to offer farmers a compact low-power Stage V six-cylinder tractor with embedded technology for operator efficiency.”
The T6 range now offers two six-cylinder models with Dynamic Command: the existing 145hp T6.180 and the new 135hp T6.160 – the only compact six-cylinder tractor on the market with rated power less than 140hp. The newcomer will be available in the second half of 2021.
The T6.160 Dynamic Command features the proven, powerful NEF six-cylinder 6.7 litre engine that generates 135hp and delivers a strong pulling away performance, engine stability with fluctuating loads, and effective engine braking in downhill operation and transport.
The new T6 model features the exclusive 24×24 Dynamic Command transmission developed in-house by New Holland. The innovative design – with eight-step push-button gear changes using Dual Clutch technology and three push-button robotised range changes – ensures that the best gear for the application is always engaged. The clutches designed for fast gear changes combined with a fully automated gearbox always set the ideal ratio and reduce the need for operator input. The result is high productivity with low operator fatigue.
The NEF engine meets Stage V emissions standards with the high-efficiency SCR (selective catalytic reduction)-only maintenance-free after-treatment system. Combined with the Dynamic Command transmission, the engine raises the bar on efficiency, achieving fuel savings of up to nine per cent.
A host of automated functions makes it easy to power through a long day of work with consistently high productivity. These include the Ground Speed Management II (GSM II) control package exclusive to New Holland and designed to increase the tractor’s efficiency by automatically maintaining the target speed set by the operator while reducing fuel consumption.
Another productivity-boosting feature is the Smart Range Shift that ensures the correct gear is always engaged when making a range shift, while any overlap gears from one range to the next are skipped giving sequential ratios and rapid acceleration.
The T6.160 Dynamic Command also features New Holland’s award-winning SideWinder II armrest with fully integrated IntelliView IV ultra-wide colour touchscreen and CommandGrip multifunction handle, which provide the highest levels of comfort and ease of operation.
The telematics on the T6.160 Dynamic Command mean that the farmer is always connected to their tractor through MyPLM Connect. Using the simple tablet-based user interface, they can send and receive real-time information. They can manage their fleet and farm data in a single environment, uploading their agronomic data from Farm Tab, which is available free of charge within MyPLM Connect. The platform is embedded in the MyNH portal, where they can register their units, receive information and product materials, and request assistance if needed.
