New Holland Agriculture has presented its new flagship T7 HD (Heavy Duty) tractor for the first time at a virtual press launch.
The new T7 HD maintains the powerful performance, exceptional agility and outstanding versatility that are the hallmark of this tractor and delivers a superior working experience with the brand-new Horizon Ultra cab and next-generation Precision Land Management (PLM) Intelligence features. It’s said to be ideal for contractors who need to multi-task in a variety of field and transport applications, and look for a boost to their comfort, efficiency and productivity.
“We asked our customers what they expected from their future tractor and developed the new generation T7 HD based on their demands, and it delivers everything they dreamed of,” New Holland Agriculture’s vice president for europe, Sean Lennon, said. “We designed the brand-new Horizon Ultra cab to give them the best working experience with all the space, comfort, quality finish they asked for, and the quietest cab on the market.
“On top of this, the next-generation PLM Intelligence will make it easier for them to access our intelligent farming solutions that deliver substantial added value in terms of better decision making and accurate execution, boosting their efficiency and profitability.”
The Horizon Ultra cab has been redesigned from the ground up to meet the customers’ most demanding expectations.
“The T7 HD might seem the same from outside, with the same compact, stylish appearance,” New Holland Agriculture’s global tractor product management leader, Oscar Baroncelli, said, “but it’s totally new inside; just two per cent of parts are carry-overs from the previous model!
“It’s more connected than ever and sets a new record as the quietest in the industry with just 66 dBA. We believe it’s going to transform our customers’ experience when they work in the field.”
The T7 HD maintains the T7 range family ‘feel’, while offering a spacious work environment where the driver feels far less enclosed by the cab structure. The cab has been lengthened to provide additional room for the passenger and more floor space. Customers will appreciate the ample storage available: a 30-litre storage space behind the seat that will comfortably hold the driver’s carry-on items; a 12-litre capacity cooled compartment; covered storage behind the passenger seat with a USB charging point and a mains voltage socket; open storage trays on the right side of the cab; and a netted storage bin within the roof bezel.
The redesign has further improved visibility to the front and down to the rear hitch and implement, while cameras keep a safe watch on the area around the tractor. A new work light package with up to 24 LED lights ensures visibility around the tractor and implement is maintained into the night.
The spacious cab provides a comfortable work environment with clean, uncluttered surfaces and intuitive operation with ergonomically located controls on the new SideWinder Ultra armrest and user-friendly IntelliView 12-inch display. The controls can be configured to match the operator’s preferences, and customisation is as simple and extensive as desired.
The CentreView display placed in the centre of the steering wheel – an industry first – provides a clearer line of sight. The new class-leading automatic climate control system with zone selection, which has 35 per cent more capacity than the previous model, easily maintains a comfortable temperature in all seasons.
The top-of-the-range Auto Comfort seat features lateral suspension and a climate control system that extracts moisture on hot days or warms on cold mornings. The Horizon Ultra cab’s advanced connectivity enables customers to bring their digital life on board effortlessly, as their mobile device automatically connects to the screen and can be operated with a button on the armrest.
