New Holland has improved its popular T5 tractor range – one of the best sellers in its power bracket in Europe. Not only does the range meet Stage IVB emissions regulations it also incorporates a variety of new features designed to boost comfort, efficiency and productivity.
New Holland say the new T5 Stage IVB range has been re-engineered to meet the evolving needs of livestock farmers and those who require a nimble, mid-powered tractor for dairy and mixed farming.
“New Holland has traditionally been very strong in serving this sector of agriculture with tractors in this power bracket, and the T5 Stage IVB developments are designed to build on that,” New Holland’s Sean Lennon said. “While upgrading the T5 tractors’ emissions systems to meet Stage IVB regulations, New Holland has taken the opportunity to add further developments that enhance the machines’ versatility and capabilities. Styling has also been brought into line with that of the higher powered T6 and T7 range.”
A key development is the Terraglide front suspended axle option. When paired with the optional Comfort Ride cab suspension, farmers and operators can expect similar comfort levels to those already found on larger machines. Optional front brakes are available for true four-wheel braking performance.
In the VisionView cab, comfortable operation is improved with carefully arranged controls and tiltable steering column, to keep everything close to the operator. A panoramic windscreen and large 200-degree wiper improves visibility even in poor weather conditions. The operator also benefits from enhanced stowage with the addition of a storage box to the left of the seat.
A new wide frame with bolted towers and the option of side rails form part of a loader-ready package. The option of new mechanical or electrohydraulic joysticks with integrated transmission shifting is aimed at making operation easier, and more efficient, for those who fit their T5 with a loader. These provide transmission and loader function buttons on the one unit.
The new T5 range is available in three models: the 99hp T5.100; the 107hp T5.110; and the 117hp T5.120. They offer maximum torque figures at 1,500rpm of 430, 468 and 491Nm respectfully.
All are equipped with the 3.4-litre common Rail F5C engine with ECOBlue Compact HI-eSCR technology and Low Rate exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) developed and produced by FPT Industrial.
This is in alignment with the New Holland Stage IVB strategy that foresees the use of Compact SCR and Low rate EGR for lower-powered products with reduced cooling requirements, and for which overall product dimensions are of vital importance. It all adds up to outstanding efficiency, increased performance and up to 24 per cent more torque backup for even more productivity. Fuel capacity is 165 litres, and AdBlue tanks hold 12 litres.
The rear three-point linkage lift capacity has been raised to 5,420kg, while remote valve layout has been improved for easier coupling. Flexibility is enhanced by the multifunctional front linkage, capable of lifting 1,850kg, and the 1,000rpm PTO. Improvements to the chassis have allowed gross vehicle weight to be raised from 7,400kg to 8,000kg, and a new fixed heavy-duty front axle option allows the fitment of 28-inch front tyres.
