Axles and Traction

 

 
LONG WHEELBASE FOR COMFORT AND AGILE PRODUCTIVITY
 
The new T8 range has the longest wheelbase in the segment. Ultra Command models boast a 3450mm wheelbase, which has been further stretched to a mighty 3550mm on the T8.435, that is a full 500mm, an impressive half a metre longer than the nearest competitor, all contained within an overall length of a mere 6469mm. A longer wheelbase means greater stability at high transport speeds, faster and more efficient minimum tillage operations and more traction for demanding heavy drawbar applications all of this is achieved with lower ballasting requirement. You no longer have to choose. With New Holland, choice comes as standard.
 
TERRALOCKā„¢ TRACTION MANAGEMENT
 
Terralock will automatically manage the engagement of drive to the front axle and the locking of the front and rear differentials. To improve productivity, the system takes care of drive during a headland turn to optimise manoeuvrability.
 
TRANSPORT SAFETY
 
Front axle brakes are balance-linked to the rear axle brakes for safe, secure and dependable braking at high transport speeds. The optional engine braking system further improves safety by helping to reduce the need for repeated braking in difficult terrain.
 
HEAVY DUTY AXLES FOR HEAVY DUTY PERFORMANCE
 
The heavy duty axle is fitted to the T8.435 as standard. The 127mm bar axle means that every last drop of power is transmitted to the ground for ultimate in field performance. Furthermore, the largest 2.15m tyres, such as the 900/60R42 variant, can be fitted with ease.
