New Holland unveils T7 tractor

Presented by

New Holland unveiled its new flagship heavy duty T7 tractor last week, as the manufacturer ushers in a ‘new generation’ of farming.

New Holland says the new T7 tractor has been designed to meet today's industry needs

The new T7 features a new-look cab and the addition of New Holland’s next-gen Precision Land Management (PLM) intelligence system, which the company says  makes it ideal for multi-purpose use in the field and in other transport applications.

New Holland spokesman Sean Lennon says the company designed the tractor cab to give farmers all the space and comfort they could want. 

"On top of this, the next-generation PLM Intelligence will make it easier for them to access our intelligent farming solutions which deliver substantial added value in terms of better decision making and accurate execution, boosting their efficiency and profitability," he says.

Only two per cent of the parts from the previous T7 HD tractor have been carried over into the redesigned ‘Horizon Ultra’ cab, with the new model designed to operate more quietly, at 66 dBA, keeping operator fatigue to a minimum. 

The length of the cab has been lengthened to provide a more spacious work environment for the operator, with additional room for a passenger and more floor space included. Up to 30 litres of storage space has also been added, plus a 12-litre cooled compartment.

Visibility has also been improved, to the front and down to the rear hitch, while the 24 LED lights packaged around the tractor provide increased visibility at night.

A 12-inch display couples with what New Holland hails as an industry-first CentreView display, which has been placed in the centre of the steering wheel to provide operators relevant information and data. Ergonomic customisable controls are located on the new armrest.

Many functions of the T7 can be controlled from the armrest keypad or IntelliView 12 monitor

The T7’s new cab features all the necessary connectivity points including USB and Bluetooth as well as an improve climate control system and comfortable seating.

New Holland says the technology unveiled on the T7 HD is a step forwards in its precision land management strategy and marks a shift from traditional farming to ‘agriculture 4.0’ which is built around interconnectivity and precision agriculture.

"These new developments are the result of New Holland’s strategy to be more and more connected to our customers," says Carlo Lambro, New Holland Agriculture Brand President.

"Servitisation and digitalisation are the gates to the future. They have made it possible to integrate the physical presence at the wheel with an array of digital services that mean we can always be at our customer’s side, helping them to get the job done."

Customers will be able to register their New Holland machines using the MyNewHolland app where the MyPLMConnect portal can help manage their fleet and farm data all in one location.

MyPLMConnect can display dynamic information in real time from individual machines at work in the field to help operators make better decisions. The electronic architecture will be adopted across all the brand’s next-gen equipment.

New Holland is also set to introduce a new PLM Cygnus receiver which helps to provide more accurate data on things such as vehicle position, considering terrain variations and helps acquire guidance lines quickly.

New Holland dealers can also use the technology to perform remote diagnostics on machines using the New Holland Remote Assist tool.

The New Holland Agriculture team is looking forward to releasing this product to the Australian and New Zealand market in 2022.
