The New T4 Speciality Tractors for Fruit Farming
17th November 2022
New Holland T4s and T5s have been popular choices for professional fruit growers for some time but the new T4 F N & V series launched at SIMA this year really offers the full package for growers and paired with Dondi specialised implements – the two are the perfect combination.
Following on from the benchmark speciality TN series, the new T4 F/N/V models are precision made with the same modular build concept. Our favourite, the T4.110F is an ergonomic, and surprisingly spacious tractor offering low operating costs, a practical operator environment and is an absolute driving pleasure. The new T4 provides more power and performance, advanced cab filtration, more powerful hydraulics, and a new front linkage and PTO package leaving you fully equipped for a long productive day.
Thanks to the modular design concept the choice of transmissions can be easily matched to end user needs. Advanced features include a new ergonomic gear lever position, a new push button creeper engagement and the Powershuttle aggressiveness setting. New optional features include a new parking lock feature now available on Powershuttle transmissions as well as on Dual Command™ versions. Shuttle forward/reverse and PTO engagement can be adjusted, providing comfortable modulation customised for each application.
Choose rated power outputs of 76 to a hefty 121hp across the range. All models have clean and efficient four-cylinder 3.4 litre engines compliant with Tier V emission standards and a fuel tank capacity up to 104 litres with service intervals of 600 hours. T4FNV tractors have 3 different axles to choose from, the Standard axle to the advanced Terraglide front axle. The legendary SuperSteer™ front axle offers an effective steering angle of 76°, which means a tractor can turn in a radius as low as 3.5m for truly outstanding agility. The Terraglide™ front axle suspension is proven to protect the tractor, mounted implements, and the operator from heavy shock loads during transport. In the field, the advanced suspension system maintains contact between the tyre and the ground to improve traction and safety.
Not only does the new VisionView™ cab deliver all round visibility for an uninterrupted view but this award winning New Holland Blue Cab™ 4 meets EN 15695- 2:2009 filtration and EN 15695-1:2009 pressurisation standards. In-cab sound levels are now just 78dB(A) and the flat deck floor and 360° LED light packages further enhance day long comfort.
Pair this with the Italian implement maker Dondi which provides a range of equipment ideal for working in fruit plantations, vineyards, orchards or in nurseries under glass. Choose between specialist cultivators, sub-soilers and decompactors, all designed to work in narrow aisles between trees, vines and shrubs. There are also mounted single and double tool holders for implements to work the soil on either side of an aisle.
