Dealers in Donegal and Sligo win Irish prizes in New Holland’s annual awards.
Many machinery fans will get their first look at New Holland’s recently launched T5 Utility tractor range working at the UK based Grassland and Muck event next week.
New Holland has added a further five models to its T5 range of tractors to complete the mid-range tractor line up.
The latest Utility models offer between 75 and 114 horse power, and continue the heritage of New Holland’s well- regarded T5000 series with 24×24 Dual Command transmission, capable performance and compact size, and all at a competitive price.
The larger, three-model T5 Tier 4B Electro Command range launched in 2016, offers between 99 and 117 horse power, with a semi powershift ElectroCommand transmission, upgraded styling and optional cab and axle suspension.
New T5 Utility tractors can be specified with a choice of two or four-wheel drive on all Synchro-Shuttle models (four-wheel drive on all others), plus a wide choice of transmissions including dual command, power shuttle, and creep-speed to suit individual requirements.
Like many tractors in this market space, it comes loader-ready.
The T5 can support a maximum lift capacity of up to 2,539kg with a maximum lifting height of 3.7m from New Holland’s 740TL front loader.
For added versatility, a front linkage is available, offering a lift capacity of 1,670kg combined with a 1000-speed PTO.
Rear lift capacity is impressive, at a maximum of 4,400kg with a second assist ram.
A three-speed PTO featuring ECO and ground speed increases the number of implements that can be used, and reduces fuel consumption.
New Holland has not forgotten the tractor driver either.
In the spacious VisionViewTM cab, drivers benefit from an ergonomic control layout, a choice of seats and air conditioning, along with a full width high visibility roof panel for improved safety, particularly when operating a front loader.
The Heavy Duty (class 1.5) front axle, available on the T5.95, 105 and 115, gives greater load carrying capacity, also enhancing these tractors for loader work.
New Holland has presented two dealers from its Irish network with prestigious awards.
The annual New Holland Dealer of the Year Award highlights excellence in sales performance and service quality to customers.
The winner of the Irish Dealer of the Year Award 2016 was Cowan Tractors from Manorcunningham, Co Donegal.
Bertie Cowan of Cowan Tractors, winner of Irish Dealer of the Year, said: "The award was really unexpected and it was great to hear that as a team we had done so well. We weren’t thinking about the awards we were just trying to do our best. This award is testament to the hard work of all our staff and the loyalty of our many customers over the years. We are continually striving to improve our customer experience in dealing with our company."
The runner-up of the Irish Dealer of the Year Award 2016 was O’Briens Tractors from Bunnanadden, Co Sligo.
