Refresh on a Classic

10/02/2013 @ 2:49pm

New Holland celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Genesis tractor with a new series. “Producers will appreciate the innovative, productivity-enhancing features of the new Genesis T8 Series,” says Gary Wojcik, New Holland. The new six model lineup, ranging from 273 to 419 hp., is powered by efficient ECOBlue SCR Cursor 9 engines.

Auto Command CVT
The Auto Command continuously variable transmission (CVT) offers infinite speed changes and precise speed control. Controlled by the ergonomic CommandGrip handle, the four modes of operation, including Auto, Cruise, PTO, and Manual, provide the flexibility to optimize task or fuel efficiency. Easy to program and operate, the system provides a smooth application of power. If you are working in Auto mode, you simply select the desired working speed, and the Auto Command will adjust the engine speed and transmission settings to achieve the most efficient performance.

The transmission has four points of optimized efficiency where the transmission drives through a full mechanical connection: three points are aimed at field work and one for haulage. These points have been engineered to correspond to the most frequently used operating speeds. Available in 25 and 31 mph options, you can reach tops speeds at lower engine speeds if the load permits. The CVT is standard on the T8.420 model and optional on the other models. The option of a full powershift transmission is also available on the T8.275, T8.300, T8.330, T8.360, and T8.390.

New Terraglide
A new front suspension axle is offered as an option on all models. The saddle-style design increases suspended load capacity and improves traction in the field. The Terraglide also reduces cab bounce and improves ride and handling during high-speed transport operations.

IntelliView IV Monitor
The premium, widescreen New Holland IntelliView IV monitor is available as a factory-installed option on the Genesis tractors. The 10.5-inch color touchscreen display on the SideWinder II armrest operates both tractor functions and precision farm applications. Boundary mapping, coverage mapping, data recording, precision application/prescriptions, and more are controlled through the large color touchscreen monitor.
