The new T5 tier 4B range has been re-engineered to meet the evolving needs of livestock farmers and those who require a nimble, mid-powered tractor for dairy and mixed farming, according to the manufacturer.
“New Holland has traditionally been very strong in serving this sector of agriculture with tractors in this power bracket, and the T5 tier 4B developments are designed to build on that,” said Sean Lennon, head of tractors, telehandlers and PLM product management. “While upgrading the T5 tractors’ emissions systems to meet tier 4B regulations, New Holland has taken the opportunity to add further developments that enhance the machines’ versatility and capabilities. Styling has also been brought into line with that of the higher powered T6 and T7 range.” A key development is the ‘Terraglide’ front suspended axle option. When paired with the optional ‘Comfort Ride’ cab suspension, farmers and operators can expect similar comfort levels to those already found on larger machines, according to New Holland. Optional front brakes are available for true four-wheel braking performance. In the deluxe ‘VisionView’ cab, comfortable operation is improved with carefully arranged controls and tiltable steering column, keeping everything close at hand. A panoramic windscreen and large 200-degree wiper improves visibility, even in poor weather conditions. The operator also benefits from enhanced stowage with the addition of a storage box to the left of the seat. Externally, night vision is improved with new high-power LED work lights. The optional eight LED lights provide 15,600 lumens and a broader spread of white light. Compared to equivalent powered halogen lights, they offer 145 per cent more light and increased durability with less power consumption, according to New Holland. Those operating compatible equipment benefit from optional ISOBUS class II capability, which is designed to make it easy to monitor and control all implements using the optional IntelliView III monitor for single screen operation. A new wide frame with bolted towers and the option of side rails form part of a loader-ready package. The option of new mechanical or electro-hydraulic joysticks with integrated transmission shifting is aimed at making operation easier, and more efficient, for those who fit their T5 with a loader. These provide transmission and loader function buttons on the one unit. New ‘Auto Transport’ and ‘Auto Field’ modes improve the functionality of the Electro Command transmission, enhancing drivability, the company says. For roadwork, operator input can be reduced by simplified gear changing in Auto Transport mode, which can significantly reduce fuel consumption. In the field, performance and economy during power take-off (PTO) and draft operations can be optimised with Auto Field mode, which manages both engine speed and transmission. Additionally, there are now three settings for shuttle modulation, allowing the operator to set the responsiveness of forward/reverse changes, a feature particularly targeted at the large number of users who equip tractors of this size with a loader.
