New Holland introduces a new two-wheel drive (2WD) version of its premium T6 Series tractor, available starting Q1 2017.
The 2WD version offers enhanced maneuverability on two wheels for sharper turning, making it perfect for flat to rolling hill work, including hay making, mowing and roadside fleet applications. Removing the 4WD feature allows for a reduction in purchase price while still offering best-in-class mid-range tractor benefits like the ultra-quiet VisionView cab and optional ComfortRide cab suspension.
“We had a lot of dealers and customers coming to us with this request and are excited to announce that we’ve brought it to life,” says Michael Cornman, Under 140 hp Tractor Segment Marketing Manager. “This new 2WD solution not only fulfills flat land and chore work needs but also comes at a more economical price point.”
The 2WD model will be available for all Electro Command semipower transmission models, featuring eight pushbutton power shifts across 16 gears. The 16th gear is an ECO transmission offering, reducing engine speed at maximum transport speed of 19 mph to make for more fuel-efficient operations.
In addition to the acquisition cost and maneuverability benefits, cab visibility is vastly improved thanks to smaller front wheels.
