New Holland Offers 2014 Speedrowers


New Holland is unveiling its new 2014 Speedrowers, replacing the H8000 series, including the 130, 200 and 240 models. The changes in the new series are wide-ranging, but not unlike most new models, there is a heavy focus on operator comfort and user-friendly features.

Still toting the Tier 3 engine, the new speedrowers are equipped with hydro-mechanical steering, enabling easy turning and speeds of up to 24 mph. The anti-shimmy shock absorbers on the rear wheels limit side-to-side wheel movement, while the patented rear-axle suspension system allows for even further shock absorption on rough terrain. And with 42.5″ of ground clearance, there’s little chance of fuss over bunched-up canola swaths.’s Debra Murphy caught up with Seth Doman, a brand marketing manager with New Holland, at Agritrade in Red Deer to talk about the new speedrowers. The video below highlights some of the changes, including a discussion on the new lift-arm position sensor.
