NH T8 CVT vs. JD 8370R IVT

The Nebraska tests are now coming out on Tier IVb tractors with CVT transmissions.   We reviewed  the Nebraska test 2102 for a JD 8370R with an IVT transmission, DEF and CEGR engine using two turbochargers to stuff enough heated air in the engine to achieve a 16:1 compression ratio is and compared it with the NH T8.420 with CVT:

JD 8370 with IVT Neb Test | NH T8.420 with CVT Neb Test

Notice that while the horsepower at rated RPM is identical (351) the NH uses less fuel (18.44 for NH vs. 18.93 for JD), the torque rise is higher (50.7% for NH vs. 43.6% for Deere or a 16.2% advantage to NH) and the while the report says that Deere claims regeneration occurs only once every 50 hours, the tractor did regenerate in the 32 hour test period.

This test is just one of the many reasons why we believe we have the best high horsepower tractor on the market. We would enjoy speaking with anyone interested in these results, and give a demo of our tractor to get the real feel of the superiority of the product.

SMARTTRAX vs. Duals (photos)

SMARTTRAX provides compaction relief that is visible.  As the photos comparing a track impression from a T8 SMARTTRAX tractor compared to a T8 with 50” duals in very muddy conditions shows, the track’s ability to spread the forces on the ground (compaction) is clearly lessening the soil impact.

Both tractors had no draft load so the compaction from the pulling force isn’t considered in this comparison, but the lessening of compaction from the draft load would be additional advantage for the track. The turn effort of both tractors, done without brake assistance, shows that the T8 SMARTTRAX doesn’t ‘berm’ up the soil any more than a tractor equipped with tires does.  Reduce yield-robbing compaction while maintaining tractor control that feels like a tractor with tires.
