Excellent levels of comfort

With in-cab noise levels as low as 69 dBA, the  Horizon™ Cab on the New Holland T6 and T7 tractor ranges is universally recognised as offering operators excellent  levels of comfort. while the SideWinder II armrest is a benchmark in terms of ergonomic operation.

Following customer consultation, New Holland has launched an upgraded version, for both the T6 and T7 ranges, which will further enhance comfort and intuitive, ergonomic use. Driver comfort was at the heart of the Horizon™ Cab upgrade and new items have been included to enhance the operator’s environment. The air conditioning controls, lighting panel, additional storage slots and the radio have all been grouped in an ergonomic cluster within the roof lining. This enables operators to fine tune these controls on the move whilst keeping their eyes on the road for enhanced safety. Charging points have also been provided for mobile telephones and other electrical items to enable operators to stay in touch at all times. A handy USB and auxiliary port are integrated into the radio for the connection of an MP3 player, while Bluetooth connectivity allows easy phone pairing. The Horizon™ Cab now features additional storage solutions, including elasticated straps on the rear of the instructor seat, which are ideal for keeping paperwork tidy. An additional net has also been added to the front of the instructor seat. This is accessible from ground level and can be used to tuck items such as gloves away. The Horizon™ Cab is now equipped with the T8 range’s steering wheel as standard. The thicker wheel enables a more comfortable and natural grip. SideWinder™ II models have a tinted rear window as standard. This will protect operators from the harshest rays when mowing or grain carting during the height of summer. Additional protection is provided by an optional integrated rear sun blind, which is neatly stored away when not required.

New Holland listened to users, and has installed backlit technology on the CommandGrip™ multi-function handle. The control icons are backlit with clear white LED lights, to make selecting the desired function when working late into the night even easier. The buttons now feature soft touch technology, which delivers low effort operation, reducing fatigue and enhancing the driving experience.

For operations which extensively use guidance, the optional, 26.4cm IntelliView™ IV colour touchscreen monitor will be the default choice. Mounted to the SideWinder™ II armrest, operators can select from a whole host of parameters quickly and easily and follow guidance paths with greater ease. The larger screen allows tractor functions and guidance information to be clearly displayed on a single screen, there’s no need to fill the cab with multiple monitors.

A host of luxury options are available on both tractors: the heated enlarged wing mirrors have an electronically adjustable top section. The manually adjustable wide angle lower section has been designed to counteract blind spots and is similar to those found on heavy goods vehicles, for the best possible view when manoeuvring in confined spaces, trimming verges or for keeping an eye on the front edge of tillage implements. Customers looking for a touch of luxury will select the leather steering wheel option with detailed stitching, which is standard on all Auto Command models. A thick pile branded floor carpet completes the luxury pack for the ultimate in farming comfort. The Horizon™ Cab is standard on all T6 and T7 models.
