Compared to the engines used on the previous T8000 Series tractors, New Holland T8 tractors with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) provide up to 14 hp increase in rated power, up to 31 hp increase in maximum power and up to a 15% increase in peak torque.
With the implementation of the upcoming Tier 4 emission standards, New Holland T8 tractors are powered by Cursor 8.7-liter engines from Fiat Powertrain Technologies.
The five models in the lineup include:
- T8.275: 185 PTO hp; 273 hp maximum
- T8.300: 205 PTO hp; 298 hp maximum

All T8 Series tractors are geared with an Ultra Command full powershift transmission. The series’ wheelbase measure 11’4”, and the tractors provide 18,000 lb. rear lift capacity. New Holland's optional TerraGlide suspended front axle provides a 55° turning radius.
The T8 Series cab totals 109.5 cubic feet of interior space and features SideWinder II armrest console with its intuitive controls, focusing on ease of use and operator comfort. This console includes the CommandGrip control lever and the IntelliView IV touch screen monitor, which is the first on the market to integrate tractor and implement controls, as well as those associated with the IntelliSteer auto-guidance system.
Standard hydraulic flow is 43 gpm and with the Megaflow pump option, capacity totals 72 gpm. Engine Power Management (EPM) provides up to 50 hp of extra power in high-demand conditions.
Another available option is engine braking, which uses the compression of exhaust gas to slow the tractor down.
