New Holland Goes Two-Wheeling For Maneuverability

Looking to make sharper turns and also save money?

Beginning in 2017, New Holland will offer a two-wheel-drive (2WD) version of its T6 series tractors. The new tractors, unveiled earlier this year at the Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa, offer enhanced maneuverability on two wheels for sharper turning, making them a good fit for flat to rolling hill work, including hay making and mowing operations.

In this video, New Holland segment marketing manager Mike Cornman explains that removing the 4WD feature will reduce the tractor cost by US$10,000, but farmers will still enjoy the ultra-quiet VisionView cab and optional ComfortRide cab suspension.

The 2WD model will be available for all Electro Command semipower transmission models, featuring eight push-button power shifts across 16 gears. Cornman notes that the switch to 2WD will limit ground speed to 19 MPH because breaking will rely solely on the rear tires.
