Cropweek 2012 – New Holland Offers SmartTrax System to Provide Wider Harvest Windows

At this year’s Crop Production Week Show in Saskatoon, we got to take a look at New Holland’s new SmartTrax track system. The system offers producers a number of benefits, the first of which is more power to the ground. The tracks offer a boost in pulling and climbing power when travelling or pulling larger implements across hilly land. The second benefit is better floatation.

This is a real benefit to no till farmers or anyone using a controlled traffic system.

We talked to New Holland Agriculture’s Todd Summach about the SmartTrax system at Crop Production Week 2012.
