Simple gear, good specs

Designed to suit livestock and smaller mixed farms, the new New Holland T4-S tractors distributed by Norwood are available with 55, 65 and 75hp outputs.

They meet smaller farms’ preferences for mechanical simplicity, good standard specification and above all versatility, 

These ‘Kiwi spec’ models mate a 2.9L 3-cylinder S8000 Tier III engine to a 12 x 12 transmission enhanced with a hydraulic shuttle operated via a steering column mounted lever. 

This makes the T4-S models particularly suitable for loader work, and an optional creep setting allows speeds from 100m/hour for specialist jobs like precision vegetable planting.

 A new four-post cabin is said to offer roominess and visibility, and the opening roof panel gives an extra sightline when working with a raised frontloader. 

A flat floor gives easy access and plenty of space, and a powerful heating and air conditioning package increases operator comfort and helps reduce fatigue. 

Rear lift capacity is rated at 3000kg with two external assist rams. Up to three hydraulic remotes are available and a standard flow rate up to 48L/min. 

All models have a two-speed 540/540E PTO engaged via a servo assisted lever, and a soft-start function modulates engagement to protect the tractor and implements.

 The wheelbase is compact at 2130mm long, overall height is 2520mm and operating width depends on tyre widths and track settings of 1440-1950mm. This makes for a versatile small tractor. 

Its ability is enhanced by its FL 3.15 Master, factory fitted loader made in Turkey. It has an integrated joystick, can lift to 3m and holds 1720kg. It is supplied as standard with a 1.8m rehandling bucket.
