The New Holland Genesis T8 With PLM Intelligence

The New Holland redesigned T8 is built for the way you work. Growing production demands, resource challenges, labor shortages, weather uncertainties… these are just a few of the obstacles you face every day. You need a dependable partner in the field to help you simplify things. One that knows your operation inside and out. That connects you effortlessly to real-time resources and insights. That adapts to the way you work… not the other way around.

Customizable Control— When the time comes to deliver precision results in the field, there’s no room for a “one-size-fits-all” approach. Every operator has their own unique preferences and requirements with their IntelliView display. So, we built your controls package around the revolutionary idea that custom adjustments should come standard. Variable hydraulic technology lets you control all eight remote valves from any of 15 in-cab hydraulic buttons. Up to nine configurable buttons let you customize armrest controls to the operator or the task at hand.

Improved Visibility— Whether you’re in an open field or on a busy road, awareness of your surroundings is essential. We’ve reduced in-cab obstructions, placed your InfoView™ monitor in direct line-of-sight and even installed a nose mounted camera and a rear facing camera for road safety and in-field work. Welcome to your new horizon. Additional cab lights and controls let you configure custom lighting patterns, choose from three different lighting packages and turn night into day. Redesigned cab and instrument layout provides you with nearly 360-degrees of visibility. Strategically placed cameras offer additional safety, visibility and peace of mind. In the field or on the road.

Enhanced Comfort— With all the hours you spend in the field, shouldn’t work feel a little more like home? We think so. That’s why we’ve added more accessible storage, power ports, HVAC vents, egress lights and the most comfortable seat outside of your living room. Multi-zone HVAC system ensures optimal comfort, control and visibility no matter the climate or season. Redesigned SideWinder™ Ultra armrest offers multi-directional, independent motion to provide nearly infinite comfort configurations.

Advanced Support— When there’s no time for “downtime,” you need a tractor that measures productivity and precision in seconds and inches. We engineered New Holland Remote Assistance to provide remote connectivity, advanced diagnostics, and remote display viewing whenever, and wherever you need it. Customer-to-Vehicle connectivity allows you to run your farm business from the cab, the farm office or the other side of the world. Dealer-to-Vehicle connectivity helps you minimize downtime with proactive support, remote monitoring and diagnostics, and in-field software updates. Advisor-to-Vehicle connectivity lets you stay in touch with nutritionists, agronomists and other experts to improve decision-making on the move.

Intuitive Simplicity— True innovation doesn’t require an advanced degree to operate. To help you harness all of the powerful features and technologies built into the new T8, we developed a user-friendly interface that feels as natural and instinctual as agriculture itself. Improved button orientation and handle ergonomics put precision command in your hands. Enhanced joystick design lets you control tractor transmission functions as well as hydraulic remotes. Bluetooth connection allows you to control phone and radio through armrest or display. Easily split screens, expand tiles, and set up tasks right from the homescreen on the new IntelliView 12™ in-cab display.

Kivi-Pekka Rock Pickers are Hard as Stone

By using a Kivi-Pekka stone picker, you will be able to avoid causing wear and tear on your other farming machinery. The Kivi-Pekka stone picker will also help increase your crop yield, as there will be no stones to restrict the cutting height when harvesting, prevent harvesting or damage your machinery.

The machine is customized and manufactured according to the customer’s specifications. The KIVI-PEKKA, manufactured by Peltuote in Finland, is suitable for use by small co-operative groups and contractors, thanks to its durability and speed. In addition to field work, the KIVI-PEKKA can also be used for land clearance, road renovation and foundation work, golf courses and landscaping. Kivi-Pekka stone pickers are now sold in 43 countries, where they are used to collect stones from fields covering hundreds of thousands of acres.

Key Features:

  • Kivi-Pekka stone pickers do not require a large tractor. 70hp is required for the 4m (157″) working width model, and 80hp is required for the 5m (197″) and 6m (236″) models.
  • Maximum stone size is 50cm (20″) in diameter. The KIVI-PEKKA Flex Drum makes it possible to collect larger stones than when using the standard lifting drum. The lifting drum transmission is mounted on its own frame. This allows the frame and entire lifting drum to rise up together, thus making it possible to pick up stones 50 cm(20″) in diameter. The hydraulic pressure accumulator in the Flex Drum assists in raising the lifting drum when it comes upon a large stone. The drum can also be raised into its up position manually using hydraulics. The Flex Drum suspension dampens shocks to the sieve and tines, thus extending their service life. Thanks to the Flex Drum, there is no need to reverse rotation – the drum is simply raised to pick up large stones without having to stop.
  • Durability across the machine. Kivi-Pekka is equipped with strengthened drive belts, and power is transmitted to the lifting drum via straight drive belts, which reduces the power requirement. The belts do double duty as an overload protection mechanism, while also absorbing the shock from the stones that come into contact with the machine, thus preventing it from affecting the tractor through the transmission. The belts are highly resistant to wear and tear and require very little maintenance. Because the drivetrain contains no expensive parts that need replacing, the operating costs of the Kivi-Pekka stone picker are kept low.

Standard Equipment:

  • Standard tire size 560/60R22.5
  • All PTO shafts
  • Sieve for the stone tank
  • Sieve for the lifting drum
  • HD tines for the rotors
  • Lifting drum tines

  • Tipping height: 290 cm (114″)
  • Hydraulic working depth adjustment
  • Tool and spare parts box
  • Crow bar

Optional Accessories:

  • Other tire options: 710/45R22.5, 700/50R26.5, Walking tandems 500/50R17, Walking tandems 500/55R20
  • Hydraulic rotor lift
  • Flex Drum for 50 cm(20″) stones
  • Extra strong lifting drum tines (13×50)(1/2″x2″)
  • Rotation guard
  • Scharmuller K80 pick-up hitch

Section 179 Equipment Deductions for Taxes

Farmers and companies can lower their taxes by buying equipment to use as deductions by December 31st of 2018. Essentially, Section 179 of the IRS tax code allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment and/or software purchased or financed during the tax year. That means that if you buy (or lease) a piece of qualifying equipment, you can deduct the FULL PURCHASE PRICE from your gross income. It’s an incentive created by the U.S. government to encourage businesses to buy equipment and invest in themselves. In years past, when your business bought qualifying equipment, it typically wrote it off a little at a time through depreciation. In other words, if your company spends $50,000 on a machine, it gets to write off (say) $10,000 a year for five years (these numbers are only meant to give you an example). Now, while it’s true that this is better than no write-off at all, most business owners would really prefer to write off the entire equipment purchase price for the year they buy it. And that’s exactly what Section 179 does – it allows your business to write off the entire purchase price of qualifying equipment for the current tax year. This has made a big difference for many companies (and the economy in general.) Businesses have used Section 179 to purchase needed equipment right now, instead of waiting. For most small businesses, the entire cost of qualifying equipment can be written-off on the 2018 tax return (up to $1,000,000). Section 179 does come with limits – there are caps to the total amount written off ($1,000,000 for 2018), and limits to the total amount of the equipment purchased ($2,500,000 in 2018). The deduction begins to phase out on a dollar-for-dollar basis after $2,500,000 is spent by a given business (thus, the entire deduction goes away once $3,500,000 in purchases is reached), so this makes it a true small and medium-sized business deduction. All businesses that purchase, finance, and/or lease new or used business equipment during tax year 2018 should qualify for the Section 179 Deduction (assuming they spend less than $3,500,000). Most tangible goods used by American businesses, including “off-the-shelf” software and business-use vehicles (restrictions apply) qualify for the Section 179 Deduction. For basic guidelines on what property is covered under the Section 179 tax code, please refer to this list of qualifying equipment. Also, to qualify for the Section 179 Deduction, the equipment and/or software purchased or financed must be placed into service between January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2018. Bonus depreciation is offered some years, and some years it isn’t. Right now in 2018, it’s being offered at 100%. The most important difference is both new and used equipment qualify for the Section 179 Deduction (as long as the used equipment is “new to you”), while Bonus Depreciation has only covered new equipment only until the most recent tax law passed. In a switch from recent years, the bonus depreciation now includes used equipment.
Bonus Depreciation is useful to very large businesses spending more than the Section 179 Spending Cap (currently $2,500,000) on new capital equipment. Also, businesses with a net loss are still qualified to deduct some of the cost of new equipment and carry-forward the loss. When applying these provisions, Section 179 is generally taken first, followed by Bonus Depreciation – unless the business had no taxable profit, because the unprofitable business is allowed to carry the loss forward to future years.
