The Fulton County Youth Leadership Academy (FCYLA), recently visited New Holland Rochester. FCYLA is a group of juniors in high school from Fulton County that learn about how to become leaders in the community. So, as part of that agenda, the group added a visit to New Holland Rochester to learn about entrepreneurship and innovation from the company president, Jim Straeter. Jim spoke with the students about his innovations and patents with the Cornrower and solar systems we sell and he invented. The students enjoyed learning from Jim about what it takes to become an entrepreneur, innovator, and leader within the community, and we enjoyed having the opportunity to share what we do with them.
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:
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 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.
See us for a demo ride today!
Dean Gangwer, a good friend and former service manager at Rodkey New Holland, took an unconventional approach to saving a newborn calf last week. It’s a great article that can be found here: http://www.theindychannel.com/news/daily-extras/indiana-farmer-uses-hot-tub-to-save-baby-cow
New Holland Centerville held their annual Open House on Friday since being in business with us. While this was only their 2nd Open House under new ownership, and their first under new store management with Jeff Jones, the products, deals, and food on hand was as good as any of our other locations held throughout the last couple of weeks.
We appreciate all the customers who came out to check out all the products we have to offer, take advantage of all the parts discounts, and have conversations with us over a great meal.
Our New Holland Logansport location held their Open House today. Despite the very icy roads, roughly two hundred people still came out to celebrate the occasion with a great meal and take advantage of huge parts discounts.
Thanks to all the people who were able to make it out, and to all of our customers for making New Holland Logansport the great business that it is. We look forward to another year of providing great products and service to all of our great customers.
The Rodkey New Holland Open House in Rossville, IN took place yesterday. While the weather was cold outside, there was nothing but hot deals and meals inside. Many great customers came in despite the weather to take advantage of great parts discounts, service specials, and for good conversation over a delicious meal.
Thanks again for everyone who was able to come and attend our annual Open House at Rodkey New Holland. We look forward to having this snow melt and helping provide farmers with the best equipment and service as they begin the new year.
