New Holland T6 Dynamic Command™ Tractor Lineup

New Holland, Pa. (August 29, 2017) – New Holland Agriculture is expanding its acclaimed T6 tractor series with the new T6 Dynamic Command™. The new T6.145, T6.155, T6.165, and T6.175 Dynamic Command models are the only tractors in this segment featuring the new 8 step semi-powershift dual clutch transmission on the market, providing operators with a new option to further improve their productivity. The new transmission reduces the number and improves the quality of gear shifts during operation, making these tractors a valuable asset to the fleets of dairy and livestock producers, hay and forage operations, and row crop farmers.

“The T6 Dynamic Command was developed directly as a result of key customer input,” said Daniel Valen, Director of Product Marketing for New Holland North America. “While many customers liked the Electro Command™ transmission, they were looking for more gears in each working range, a more efficient shuttle, and of course, an affordable price. We were able to deliver on these requests with the T6 Dynamic Command.”

With these new models, New Holland provides its customers with even more choices. Customers who are looking for an entry-level tractor for use in the yard and light field applications can opt for the T6 16×16 Electro Command™ with 4 step semi-powershift; those requiring a multipurpose tractor for tillage, haying applications, and loader work can choose the new T6 24×24 Dynamic Command; and customers who are looking for luxury performance when exact speeds are critical can find the perfect solution in the award-winning T6 Auto Command™ with continuously variable transmission.

The all new 24×24 Dynamic Command transmission allows the tractor to use less power during operation when compared to the Electro Command transmission, meaning the customer sees higher work rates with less fuel usage. At the heart of the 3 range, 8 step semi-powershift transmission is a dual clutch concept, similar to that which operates the seamless range shifting in the New Holland Auto Command transmission.

The new features of the T6 Dynamic Command make a full day’s work easy by increasing productivity and decreasing fatigue, meaning operators can get more done in less time while staying more comfortable.

Dynamic StartStop: the new brake to clutch feature improves the ease of operation when the tractor is stopping frequently, typically front end loader operation. Simply press the brake pedal and the tractor will slow and come to a stop, there’s no need to engage neutral or depress the clutch pedal. Release the brake and the drive is reengaged, for simple and efficiency-boosting automation.
• Smart Range Shift: will always put you in the correct gear when making a range shift, any overlap gears from one range to the next are skipped giving sequential ratios and rapid
Auto Shift: making the operator experience even simpler, this entry level of automation feature allows the tractor to shift gears on its own based on an adjustable engine speed threshold. Depending on the task, the operator chooses how much the engine speed can reduce before a gear change is made.
Ground Speed Management: this advanced automation feature allows an operator to select and maintain the target ground speed. Ground speed management reduces fatigue and fuel consumption by automatically shifting and throttling up or back as needed, based on load. 
Adjustable Shuttle Aggression: some tasks require the smoothest forward-reverse shuttling while sometimes the priority is faster direction change. The T6 Dynamic Command tractor lets you select between three aggression levels for the best performance possible.
Dynamic IntelliShift™ System: as the brains behind each gear shift, the Dynamic IntelliShift system analyzes engine speed, transmission shaft speeds, ground speed, load and even oil temperature to ensure each shift is as smooth and seamless as possible.
Kick Down: For the most rapid acceleration, just press the throttle fully and your T6 tractor automatically downshifts to provide you with peak power for more productivity through the day.
Transport Power Management™: when travelling more than 14 MPH, the TPM system switches the T6 Dynamic Command engine to a power curve with a different profile that concentrates more power at higher engine revolutions for more consistent tractor acceleration rates.

Two versions of the SideWinder™ II armrest, New Holland’s multi-award-winning console, are available to controlling the T6 Dynamic Command. Choose from either electronic hydraulic remote valves or mechanical valves. For the mechanical option, the integrated control panel has been repositioned to the front of the armrest to provide unobstructed access to the mechanical remote levers on the right hand side.

The CommandGrip™ multifunction handle is taken from the Auto Command CVT tractors. Pushing the force-based version of the CommandGrip forward will shift up gears, and pull backward to down gears. Engage reverse and the logic cleverly reverses, pulling backward upshifts, a common logic to the established speed control on the Auto Command. While operating in Ground Speed Management mode, pushing forward will accelerate the tractor towards the requested target speed, pulling backward decelerates the tractor.

To create the perfect front end loader tractor the T6 can now be specified with CustomSteer™, a new variable ratio steering feature that delivers the full maneuverability of the T6 with reduced turns of the steering wheel. Repetitive maneuvering while loading is made easy, just one rotation of the steering wheel can turn the steering fully from left to right while still maintaining precise control. Add in the brake to clutch feature, a high flow hydraulic pump, an advanced loader joystick with transmission controls, the high visibility roof and you can see why the T6 Dynamic Command is perfect loading tractor.

The T6 Dynamic Command can be offered with ISOBUS Class 3 capability.
Hitched to a New Holland round baler with IntelliBale™, the baler can stop the tractor when a bale is formed, eject the bale and close the tailgate. The driver simply presses the shuttle button to resume baling.

New Holland’s philosophy is that advanced features should deliver benefits and not bring complication for the operator. Ease of use is a fundamental design criteria and the T6 Dynamic Command is no exception to this rule.

  • Optispread Plus™ residue management system for New Holland CR combines provides an improved residue spreading solution to combine operators, delivering excellent chopping performance and even spreading of the residue over the width of current and future combine headers. The patented system provides four main benefits to New Holland customers. First, it finely chops residue, allowing it to decompose and fertilize fields more quickly than previous and competitive systems. Second, it provides an even distribution of residue, reducing potential yield loss. Third, it spreads the residue across the entire width of the combine head. And finally, all these features are made possible via in-cab adjustments, allowing the operator to easily select spreading width, spreading pattern, and wind compensation without having to leave his seat. Here is a video demonstrating this system:

  • The Guardian SP310F high clearance self-propelled front boom sprayer is the first model that was engineered and built as a result of New Holland’s acquisition of the Miller-St. Nazianz company. Boasting an industry-leading crop clearance of up to 78 inches, the Guardian SP310F was designed to give operators the flexibility to spray effectively in all crops and during all stages of crop growth – from short beans to late-season corn. To further enhance productivity, the suspension can be adjusted in the cab from 72 to 78 inches, depending on the needs of the operator. It also features a completely redesigned suspension, an FPT engine, a newly designed cab, and even weight distribution to reduce soil compaction and maintain traction.

New Holland Claims World Record for Harvesting Soybeans in 8 Hours

New Holland, Pa. (April 26, 2017) – New Holland Agriculture has set a new World Record by harvesting an impressive 16,157 bushels of soybeans in eight hours with the CR8.90 combine. The record-breaking performance, which took place in the Bahia State of Brazil, was certified by independent adjudicator RankBrasil.“Setting the world record for harvesting 16,157 bushels of soybeans is an achievement we’re very proud of and it demonstrates the power and productivity of the CR8.90”, stated Dan Valen, Director of Product Marketing North America. “Similar to the CR10.90 smashing the World Record for wheat harvesting in 2014, the CR8.90 delivered an exceptional performance in setting this record. Both of these accomplishments reinforce the New Holland CR Series and Twin Rotor™ technology as best-in-class, worldwide.”

Record-Breaking Performance

The record was set on April 5, 2017 at the Villa Panambi farm, belonging to the Mingori Brothers, in the Bahia State of Brazil, with the support of their dealer Jaraguá Bahia, based in nearby Luiz Eduardo Magalhães City. On record setting day, moisture was high due to ¾ inch rain at 5:00 am, and temperature ranged from 77 to 82.4 degrees Fahrenheit. Harvesting started at 10:30 am and finished at 5:30 pm, having harvested approximately 222 acres (90 hectares). CR8.90’s average throughput was 2,020 bushels/hour in a crop yielding an average of 72.6 bushels/acre, and 17% average moisture content. The record-setting performance and efficiency was achieved by harvesting 73.5 bu of soybean per gallon of fuel and entirely overseen and verified by an official adjudicator from independent organization RankBrasil, which certified the record.

CR Series – a record-breaking combine range

The CR8.90 follows on the footsteps of the range topping CR10.90, which proved it is the world’s highest capacity combine when it captured the World Record for harvesting an impressive 29,321 bushels of wheat in eight hours in 2014 – a title it holds to this day.

CR combines are able to achieve such outstanding performances thanks to New Holland’s innovative Twin Rotor™ technology which offers best-in-class productivity , efficiency and grain quality; IntelliSteer® auto guidance, which enables operators to harvest around the clock; Twin Pitch Plus rotor technology that can improve capacity in high moisture conditions by up to 10% and the optional Dynamic Feed Roll™ with integrated dynamic stone protection, which improves the CR’s already impressive capacity by up to 10% as well as enhancing crop flow into the rotors and reducing grain crackage.

12 Reasons to Buy a New Holland Box Spreader

New Holland box spreaders are the best-selling spreaders in the industry – and for good reason. Known as “Strong Boxes,” New Holland box spreaders are engineered to perform and built to last. They have the toughest floors and sides of any spreader available. And they’re made of special steels that are more corrosion-resistant and stronger than ordinary steels.

12 Reasons to buy a New Holland box spreader:

  1. Extra steel frame members in the spreader’s undercarriage provide added box strength.
  2. Heavy-duty axles with high-strength steel plates and spindles reduce stress on the frame. Standard on all models, these axles are a separate component from the box for easy servicing.
  3. A-frame hitch made of high-strength, lightweight steel extends far back under the bed. This directs pulling forces to the axles and carries the load instead of pulling it.
  4. Sturdy, formed steel frame member protects the front of the floor.
  5. Maximum-strength, easy-cleaning side sheets are designed without ribs.
  6. Optional slurry sides – a New Holland exclusive – increases capacity by about 25% and reduce splash-over.
  7. Sides and endgate made of special steels are four times more corrosion-resistant and twice as strong as ordinary steels.
  8. Unique “floating floor” made of high-density polyethylene tongue-and-groove planks expands and contracts without putting stress on the frame or sides. It won’t chip, crack, peel, or splinter – plus it’s acid and mold-resistant and won’t rot or warp.
  9. Choice of heavy-duty T-rod or pintle-type apron chains to match your spreading conditions.
  10. Rotary quadrant control lets operator set apron speed from the tractor. Choose from Neutral, Slow, Unloading, Fast Unloading, or Clean-Out positions. An optional hydraulic drive on models 185 & 195 provides more variable spreading rates.
  11. Rugged, heavy-duty jack swings out of the way for transport. It’s mounted inside the hitch channel for added protection.
  12. EVERY NEW HOLLAND ‘STRONG BOX’ COMES WITH A 12-YEAR BONDED PROTECTION. Here’s something you won’t find with competitive models – a no-nonsense, no hassle guarantee on the sides and floors. It’s standard on every New Holland box spreader. This special Bonded Protection plan guarantees the floors and sides of all New Holland box spreaders for 12 years. If the floor or sides of your New Holland box spreader fail within 12 years of original dealer purchase, new parts will be provided – FREE. No one else offers this type of protection.

Call or visit us at any of our locations today for more information on these industry-leading spreaders!
