New Holland has built its precision agriculture technology in a new version of its Genesis T8 Series tractor from the ground up – and with a redesigned cab to boot.

The company says the new Genesis T8 offers better connectivity between operators, vehicles, advisors and dealers to help improve productivity and reduce downtime.

New Holland’s product marketing manager for its Precision Land Management (PLM) Intelligence platform Luke Zerby says the new Genesis T8 is designed to be open, connected, smart and supported – by both the manufacturer and its dealer network.

"PLM Intelligence maximises all of these, utilising IsoBus Class III technology to keep you completely connected through MyPLMConnect and APIs to share and analyse your data, and now to enhance support functionality through one’s local New Holland Dealer," he says.

"This is all through a simple tablet-based user interface, allowing the farmer to do more, and do it easier than ever before."

New Holland product marketing manager North America Ken Paul says the new model features "personalisation at its best", letting operators adjust key features and functions to their individual preferences.

"Based on firsthand input from farmers in the field, we’ve created a tractor that’s literally built for the way they work," he says.

"The reimagined cab design offers the most comfortable and convenient driver experience, and next-generation intuitive controls that can be easily customised to the tasks at hand."

The cab has more power ports and vents, egress lights, easily-accessible storage and an ergonomic seat alongside New Holland’s IntelliView 12 monitor and its SideWinder Ultra armrest, where all the tractor’s key controls can be accessed.

But the Genesis has also been redesigned to remove visual obstructions, with its new InfoView monitor positioned in direct line-of-sight on the dashboard to help the operator keep their eyes on the horizon.

Strategically placed cameras make it easy to navigate in and out of traffic, while new 360-degree LED work lights deliver up to 25 per cent more visible light for night work.
