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.
RealAgriculture.com’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.
