New Holland Agriculture has upgraded its telehandler offering, with new naming and livery, with the latter said to integrate the range into the NH harvesting family.

“The new and improved TH Series offers solutions tailored to New Zealand’s different farming and civil operations, ranging from medium to large scale livestock farmers, agricultural and cartage contractors, as well as civil and construction operations,” says Rod Gardner, brand manager New Holland New Zealand.

The top of the range TH7.42 Elite features a more powerful 146 hp engine, up 13 hp from the LM7.42 Elite it replaces, includes features such as hydraulic pressure release, heated air-suspension seat with integrated controls, and rear cab and boom lights to maximise productivity. 

 A new transmission offers electronic modulation to ensure enhanced shifting and shuttling modulation, while a 6x3 powershift system offers two forward/reverse shuttling modes, resulting in easier directional and speed changes, with an automatic gear shifting mode for travelling. 

 With the aim of reducing downtime, daily checks and routine maintenance for the TH7.42 Elite have been simplified, with service intervals extended to 600 hours.
