New styling, more performance

New Holland Agriculture introduces its new tractor styling with the new T7 Series featuring its ECOBlue™ HI-eSCR technology for compliance with Tier 4B emissions standards.


The new eight-model range, which includes a new standard wheelbase model with an impressive peak power of 225 horsepower, delivers more power and bristles with productivity-boosting features. Luca Mainardi, Head of Tractor and Precision Land Management Product Management, commented: “The new T7 offers the best of New Holland’s technologies and features. Great attention to detail has been devoted to provide farmers with a powerful and highly versatile tractor that will enable them to achieve the highest levels of productivity with ease while enjoying ultimate comfort.” The new T7 Series has been completely restyled resulting in a sleek, aggressive new styling that marries form and functionality. Housed in the new engine hood are New Holland’s trademark cat eye lights that now include LED signature lighting. The sleek lines of the hood features extended blue side panels which provide improved protection from dirt and debris from entering the engine compartment while new side vents add a further styling element. Service access to filters and the cooling package is as easy as ever with an integrated release handle in the left side of the grille. The slim roof line with distinctive gullwing-like profile features an array of adjustable powerful LED working lights, further improving visibility after dark. Attention to small details such as an integrated radio antenna illustrates that functionality can be retained with style.

ECOBlue™HI-eSCR technology

The new T7 Series features a 6-cylinder engine and ECOBlue™ HI-eSCR technology developed by FPT Industrial that meets Tier 4B emissions standards without the need for Exhaust Gas Recirculation or Diesel Particulate Filter. The high efficiency after-treatment system ensures that there’s no need to compromise the combustion efficiency in order to reduce emissions, producing power is the engine’s only task. This freedom has allowed New Holland to increase the upper power levels of both wheelbase versions of the T7. Rated power of the long wheelbase increases by 5% while the standard wheel base climbs by 9% to a 180 hp. Add 45 hp of Engine Power Management to this and the T7.225 is a mighty powerful tractor for its dimensions and weight. To maximise the potential of this package tyres as large as 710/70R38 are now available on the standard wheel base. Don’t just focus on the high power though. With their HI-eSCR technology New Holland are still able to offer customers a 6 cylinder T7 at a relatively low power level. Many operators will always choose the advantages of a 6 cylinder tractor over a 4 cylinder model; at a rated power of 140-hp rising to 175-hp with Engine Power Management the exclusive T7.175 retains those benefits for the customer.

New LED work lights package and ISOBUS Class III

The new T7 Series bristles with productivity boosting features that enable the operator to work most efficiently. The all-new lighting offering features up to 16 LED cab work lights that provide a true 360-degree and far-reaching spread of light which is five times greater than before at  31,000 lumens. All the work lights are integrated in the roof; the front corner 360-degree ones have a large arc of adjustment able to point rearwards, for example downwards at a verge mower or towards the outer edge of wide implement. The rear 360-degree corner lights can be switched off independently to avoid glare, typically when unloading alongside a harvester. With these class-leading LED work lights packages, operators are able to work long after dark comfortably, safely and productively. Increased productivity comes with easy to use automation. A new 2nd generation Headland Turn Sequencer II has been developed. Controlled through the now standard IntelliView™ IV touch screen, HTS II enables complex headland turns to be created by recording a turn ‘live’ or creating one by selecting actions and trigger points from a menu. Everything from selecting the target speed of the Auto Command transmission to switching to an implement camera view is programmable and editable. It’s then placed under the control of a single button. With the new T7 comes ISOBUS Class III architecture which allows a compatible implement, a New Holland BigBaler for example, to control the tractor including its speed. Further additional features include adjustment of the power shuttle clutch engagement time and Remote Valve Management. This allows any two hydraulic remote valves to be assigned to the quad switch on the CommandGrip multi-function handle. At the front end the long wheel base models get a new integrated front linkage with a higher capacity PTO, while the standard wheelbase front end loader option features a wider frame loader for improved visibility and stability.

Advanced braking technology

The T7 range brings to farms braking systems that you only normally find on commercial road vehicles. Available on the T7.230 models and above, the advanced braking technology of the award-winning anti-lock system (ABS) manages the brakes of each wheel individually, increasing vehicle stability when braking on greasy surfaces, a very desirable option for those involved in high levels of road transport work.  In addition, ABS SuperSteer enables the tractor to execute tight turns in the field by automatically braking the rear inside wheel as the steering wheel is turned. An ABS trailer power socket and an exhaust brake are also individual options on all T7 models. The exhaust brake feature reduces the requirement to use the normal service brakes when descending gradients, the engine’s cylinder compression being utilised to hold the tractor’s speed.  Finally, wider frame modular trailer hitches increase flexibility at the rear of the tractor.
