New Holland adds Essential range to T7 tractor line up, offering affordable power, performance, and reliability

New Holland has expanded its T7 tractor range to meet the needs of farming and contracting businesses that want leading performance and economy in a more affordable package. The three-model T7 S Essential range is an economic alternative to a pre-owned machine in the same power class.

Fuel efficient and reliable the T7.165 S, T7.195 S and T7.215 S offer max power of 165, 190 and 210hp respectively, powered by FTP Industrial’s proven Tier4B-compliant six cylinder NEF Engine with ECOBlue HI-eSCR technology.

The T7.165 S is fitted with New Holland’s 18×6 40kph Range Command semi-powershift transmission. Ideally suited to livestock and mixed applications, with yard-friendly dimensions and maneuverability, the T7.165 S has the power to drive high-capacity mixer wagons, as well as the versatility for duties including mowing, baling, loading, clamp building and transport. Available loader-ready, with a wheelbase of 2,734mm, the T7.165 S comes fitted with New Holland’s high-specification Horizon cab in high or low roof specifications.

Set on a longer wheelbase of 2,884mm, the T7.195 S and T7.215 S models are designed for more intensive use, featuring New Holland’s18x6 40kph Power Command full-powershift transmission. Both models offer rugged dependability and are ideally suited to multi-operator applications, and in hire or contract fleets. Fitted with the high roof Horizon cab, the T7.195 S and T7.215 S offer exceptional levels of performance, comfort and value.

While the Essential range offers greater affordability, it doesn’t compromise on choice. For loader work the T7.165 S comes with massive hydraulic flow, electronic loader joystick, automatic four-wheel drive, and the option of award winning CustomSteer™, to deliver excellent loader cycle times and reduced steering wheel rotations for optimal maneuverability with less operator input.

Where more intensive fieldwork is required, both the Range Command transmission on the T7.165 S and the Power Command transmission on the more powerful T7.195 S and T7.215 S can be specified with creep speeds. Full IntelliSteer™ RTK guidance offering accuracy down to 1.5cm and a comprehensive telematics package is available on all T7 S models. The long-wheelbase T7.195 S and T.215 S deliver rear linkage lift capacity of up to 10,463kg with optional 110mm rear lift rams, and maximum power outputs of 190hp and 210hp respectively, making heavy cultivation duties a breeze.

The Horizon cab, used across the T7 range, has operator safety and comfort at its heart. Low noise (69dB(A)), excellent visibility and ergonomically arranged controls come as standard. Standard 8 halogen lights provide good visibility at night or in barns, with the option to upgrade to an 8 or 12 LED light pack.
