New Holland Agriculture’s new Genesis T8 Series tractor with Precision Land Management (PLM) Intelligence is designed to adapt to individual farmers’ unique needs.

Features available range from advanced connectivity between operators, vehicles, advisors and dealers to improve productivity and reduce downtime, to customisable controls, improved visibility and enhanced comfort. 

A revamped cabin design is said to offer more comfort, more storage, increased power ports and vents, egress lights and an ergonomic seat. Customisable controls allow operators to adjust to their preferences and requirements using a new SideWinder Ultra armrest and the IntelliView 12 monitor.

The in-cab experience has been enhanced by removing obstructions to enhance visibility. The new InfoView monitor is positioned in direct line-of-sight on the dash so the operator can keep his eyes on the horizon ahead. 

New 360-degree LED work lights deliver up to 25% more light.

Beyond the cabin, the company says the integration of its advanced PLM platform and approach to precision farming solutions can be summed up in four words: “Open, connected, smart and supported”.

“ISOBUS Class III technology allows users to be connected through MyPLM Connect and APIs to share and analyse data, and to enhance support functionality through a local New Holland dealer,” NH says. 

“To keep things simple, this is achieved via a tablet-based user interface.”
