New Holland: T4 Series Tier 4A Tractors

New Holland: T4 Series Tier 4A Tractors

A utility tractor needs to have power, and a new T4 will certainly give you that. This 3.4L (207 cubic-inch) turbocharged F5D engine provides you with responsive power. This engine utilizes a high pressure common rail fuel injection system to enhance combustion, which is crucial for lowering emissions for Tier 4A compliance. New Holland introduced common rail to the agriculture industry in 2003. Today, these enhanced engines are the latest generation to reap the rewards of this technology, optimizing performance and quietness significantly in comparison to the previous Tier 3 NEF engines.

KEEP GOING IN DIFFICULT CONDITIONS

When you ask for more power, your F5D engine will give it to you with an enormous torque backup of 35%. So, when you’re working in demanding conditions, like round baling high-moisture hay in uneven swaths, you’ll maintain both your forward speed and PTO speed while these large portions are fed into your baler.

CLEAN ENERGY LEADER

In order to fulfill Tier 4A emissions standards, F5D engines are equipped with a Cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation (CEGR) system and a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). Rest assured, Fiat Power Train (FPT) has ample experience with CEGR and DPF on passenger cars and commercial light-duty trucks. CEGR is the wise choice for the T4 tractors because it keeps their physical dimensions small, which is what you expect from a utility tractor. CEGR also enhances engine density up to 36 HP per liter of displacement because fuel injection and CEGR are electronically monitored. Finally, the cooling requirements and costs associated with installing a CEGR system on a smaller engine are inherently lower, making this system a smart choice.

TRANSMISSIONS TAILORED FOR YOU

SMART SHIFTING

Regardless of the transmission you choose, you receive a smart control layout that enables you to easily shift through your gears and ranges. The range lever, located to your right at the bottom of the CommandArc™ console, provides you with three ranges to choose from. Above the range lever you will find your gearshift lever that you control to shift through your four synchronized gears while on the move.

12X12 MECHANICAL SHUTTLE

This base transmission is perfect for get-on-and-go simplicity and finding the speeds you need for a variety of different implements. This transmission features a left hand mechanical shuttle located on the steering column and a synchronized gear lever and unsynchronized range lever on the right hand side of the platform. The max speed of this base transmission is 19-mph.
20X12 MECHANICAL SHUTTLE WITH CREEPER

If you need to go slower but have with the simplicity of a base transmission, a 20X12 transmission with a creeper is available. This transmission features two additional ranges with four creeper gears in each range.

12X12 POWER SHUTTLE

The 12X12 transmission with power shuttle is perfect for general applications. For instance, this transmission is ideal for loader work because it has a great mix of speeds combined with an ergonomic power shuttle, making shuttling between forward and reverse a breeze.
20X20 POWER SHUTTLE WITH CREEPER

The 20X20 power shuttle transmission with a creeper is perfect for specialty crops where going slow is important. Combined with the ergonomic power shuttle, this transmission is well-suited for planting and harvesting vegetables by hand. Combined with the optional 25-mph (40-kph) top speed option, you can take your time in the field and then quickly cruise down the road back home or on to the next field.
OPTIONAL 25-MPH (40-KPH) GROUND SPEED

For operators with a 4WD front axle who need to get down the road faster, an optional 25-mph transmission is available on all models.

CAB

THE VISIONVIEW CAB: LOOK UP AS YOU LIFT UP

You’ll be impressed when you look up and have a perfect view of your loader thanks to the optional high visibility panel. This panel can be opened up in the summertime to allow fresh air in the cab. When the sun gets too hot, the integrated sunshade can easily provide you with shade.

PERFECTLY PLACED CONTROLS

The most frequently used controls are all conveniently located on the CommandArc™ to your right. This ergonomic cluster places your PTO knob, hydraulic levers, throttle lever, three-point hitch controls, and even your loader joystick all in one convenient location.

COOL CLIMATE CONTROL

The new high-performance air conditioning system features dual zone technology to guarantee high performance during the hottest summers and the coldest winters. Control your air flow coming out of the ten repositionable vents with the B-pillar mounted controls. These vents provide air flow to both the upper and lower portion of the cab while also warming and cooling your feet.

SELECT YOUR SEAT

Three seats are available for all cab models. You can choose between a fabric, mechanical suspension seat without armrests, a fabric seat with air suspension and armrests, which is standard, or the fabric seat with air suspension, armrests, and 15° swivel.

INSTRUCTOR SEAT

T4 tractors equipped with a cab can be equipped with an optional full-size buddy seat that enables you to show someone exactly how you want a task done.

PERFORMANCE AT A GLANCE

The unobstructed instrument cluster moves in conjunction with the tilting steering column for a clear view of key operating information. Consult the easy to read performance monitor for information on your acres worked, direction, and service information in the convenient three-section display.

RUGGED ROPS PLATFORM

ROPS FOR AN OPEN AIR EXPERIENCE

All T4 tractors are available in an ergonomic, flat deck, ROPS configuration. For applications where low-clearance is crucial, the ROPS can easily be folded down. The CommandArc™ console is still part of this configuration, providing you with unmatched ergonomic comfort.

FOPS FOR SHADE AND PROTECTION

For added shade and protection from the elements and debris, a stylish FOPS canopy is available. In addition, the FOPS canopy also comes with a noise reduction kit, which includes grab rail glass and a rubber floor mat to reduce noise and vibration.

SMART STORAGE

ROPS models have additional storage compartments on both fenders since no cab air filters are needed. These storage spaces are easily accessible from both the platform as well as the ground.
