In addition to capturing plenty of attention at the recent Dowerin Field Days, the T8.420 tractor also won New Holland an award for Best New Release – Self Propelled Machinery.

In fact, this is not the first accolade awarded to the innovative tractor. It also snagged the Machine of the Year award at leading international trade fair Agritechnica last year, held in Hanover Germany.

According to New Holland High Horsepower Tractors Product Manager Don Forrester, the unique point for the brand’s  T8 series is its long wheelbase.

"We have a tractor here with the longest wheelbase in this high horsepower category of tractors," he says.

"That long wheelbase, combined with some other features on the tractor like the AutoCommand transmission allows us to really put down the horsepower of this tractor which is rated at 420 maximum engine horsepower."

Watch the video as Forrester walks us through the tractor, including its controls, seats and FPT (Fiat Powertrain) engines.
