Early next year, New Holland will have a new two-wheel drive (2WD) version of its T6 series tractor available. The 2WD version features enhanced maneuverability on two wheels so it can make sharper turns – ideal for flat and rolling hill work that includes hay making, mowing and roadside fleet applications, according to company officials.
The 2WD version is also less expensive than its T6 series 4WD counterparts, but still offers best-in-class mid-range tractor benefits that include the ultra-quiet VisionView cab and optional ComfortRide cab suspension, according to Michael Cornman, Under 140 HP Tractor Segment Marketing Manager. Because of smaller front wheels, cab visibility is vastly improved, he adds.
“We had a lot of dealers and customers coming to us with this request and are excited to announce that we’ve brought it to life,” he says. “This new 2WD solution not only fulfills flat land and chore work needs, but it comes at a more economical price point.”
Cornman says the 2WD model will be available for all Electro Command semi-power transmission models, which have eight push-button power shifts across 16 gears. The 16th gear is an ECO transmission offering, which reduces engine speed at the maximum transport speed of 19 MPH for a more fuel-efficient trip.
