Status Quo Has No Place On The Farm

When farmers make equipment for farmers, you get innovations that aren't found in an engineering textbook. Case in point: the new T8 Series tractors. They redefine large-scale agriculture with the revolutionary compact, long wheelbase design. With bold, new styling, and a sculpted frame, T8 Series tractors give you the speed and stability of a long wheelbase with the agility of a short wheelbase. T8 tractors defy the status quo in more ways. You get more power with less noise and fuel, higher speeds with better maneuverability, increased technology with simpler operation. In short, you'll never have to compromise when you own a New Holland T8 Series tractor.

Engine Features
  • Clean-running engines that save you money: At the heart of every tractor from the Clean Energy Leader is a clean-running engine. T8 tractors feature proven EcoBlue technology with SCR Cursor 9 engines that deliver increased horsepower while using less fuel and meeting stringent Tier 4A emission standards. The result: you cover more acres in a day and save both time and money.
  • The power you need, when you need it: The T8 Engine Power Management (EPM) system continuously adjusts engine output to match your working conditions, optimizing fuel efficiency and boosting your overall productivity. During demanding hydraulic, PTO and transport applications, these engines develop more power and torque to maintain performance.
  • SCR advantage - breathability: By using EcoBlue technology with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology and DEF/AdBlue® After treatment, the nitrogen oxides in exhaust gas are converted to harmless water and nitrogen. This treatment is separate from the air intake which means an SCR engine “breathes” only clean fresh air, ensuring optimal combustion conditions. New Holland draws on the experience of engine development partner, Fiat Powertrain Technologies (FPT). FPT has already produced over 150,000 SCR engines during the past five years for trucking use, so you can be assured of reliability.
  • The proof is in the numbers: All five T8 Series tractors make use of proven, 8.7-liter, six-cylinder Cursor 9 engines. Compared to the engines used on the previous T8000 Series tractors, T8 tractor Cursor 9 engines with SCR provide up to 14 hp increase in rated power, up to 31 hp increase in maximum power and up to a 15% increase in peak torque while saving you up to 10% in operating costs.
  • Cool power: The improved T8 cooling system handles the heat generated by the powerful new engines. An increased grill area and added venting in the new hood design promotes air flow, letting cool air in and warm air out—without blowing the warm air over the cab or stirring dust on the ground. A more efficient vistronic fan drive system adjusts fan speed based on temperature input, so the fan only spins as fast as needed. The end result is less power is consumed.
  • Available engine braking: Optional engine braking uses the compression of exhaust gas to slow the tractor down, saving wear on the brake pads. Just step on the convenient floor pedal and the exhaust is restricted from leaving the valve and is compressed by the piston moving upwards. This compression of exhaust gas slows the tractor down.
Transmission Features
  • The most speeds in its class: No matter which T8 transmissions you choose, you get a minimum of 18 forward speeds, with eight of them in the critical 3- to 8-mph tillage range. That's more than other tractors in this class. All four are electronic, full powershift transmissions that provide Ground Speed Management (GSM) convenience during both field and road operation.
  • Choose from four super smooth transmissions: You'll find the transmission that meets your needs in the T8 Series. The four options include: The 18 x 4 powershift (standard); the 19 x 4 powershift option with fuel-economic overdrive; the new 19 x 4 powershift with a time-saving 31-mph (50 kph) top transport speed; the 23 x 6 creeper powershift – engage creep gears on the go, without having to stop.
  • Controls close at hand: The Sidewinder II armrest console puts your hand in a natural position for operating the transmission control lever, with no clutching required. Move through powershift gears with two ergonomically placed side buttons.
  • Handy GSM road and field settings: Convert to automatic transmission with a simple push of the Ground Speed Management (GSM) button on the armrest. For GSM Road, push the top of the button, select a start gear and set the ground speed of the tractor using only the throttle lever. For GSM Field, push the bottom of the button when in the right speed and the transmission automatically maintains tractor performance based on engine speed and load. These fuel economy settings are accomplished by the transmission automatically changing engine rpm and gears.
  • Time-saver for headland turns: Program the Custom Headland Management feature to memorize multiple adjustments made when turning, then recall them with the push of one button. At the end of a row, push once to automatically throttle back, change gears and raise the implement. Then push again to reverse the adjustments as you enter the new row. A total of 30 functions can be programmed for completing a headland turn.
Hydraulics and Hitch Features
  • Powerful and versatiler hydraulic system: Quick response and ample oil flow are an integral part of T8 tractor design. You have the capacity, control and flexibility to perform multiple hydraulic functions simultaneously—without sacrificing performance. You also have the precise control needed for the most advanced seeders and specialty equipment.
  • Fully integrated front hitch and PTO: From the outset, T8 tractors were designed to work with implements on the front as well as the back. That means when you equip your T8 tractor with the optional front PTO and three-point hitch, the tractor was designed to not only handle the workload, it's designed to excel at the job. The slim engine hood provides excellent forward visibility. The balanced long wheelbase makes it easier to make full use of 12,000-pound front lift capacity, and the integrated electronic controls for the front linkage are easy to reach and use.
  • Enhanced hydraulic management: Your T8 tractor can be equipped with up to six electronic remotes, and all are easily controlled right from the SideWinder™ II armrest. Use the IntelliView™ III touch-screen to easily set flow, timing and detent settings that precisely match the job.
  • 72.3-gpm MegaFlow™ option: Standard hydraulic flow is a generous 42.5 gallons per minute (gpm). With the Megaflow™ pump option, capacity climbs to a massive 72.3 gpm. Engine Power Management provides up to 50 hp of extra power in high-demand conditions and allows you to make use of T8 full hydraulic capacity.
Frame and Axle Features
  • Stability and maneuverability with no compromises: What's more important to you—stability or maneuverability? With a New Holland T8 Series tractor, you don't have to choose.
  • The stability of a long wheelbase: With the longest wheelbase in the industry, T8 tractors give you a smooth ride that makes a real difference in your productivity and comfort. It's all due to the unprecedented 11'4”-long wheelbase. It adds exceptional stability not only in the field, but also on the road at high transport speeds. This stability means you can also make full use of the 18,000-pound rear lift capacity—without the need for the heavy front ballast that conventional tractors require.
  • Outstanding agility: The precise, sculpted frame of T8 tractors adds more than style to your operation. It allows for outstanding turning performance so you can make sharp turns in tight spaces and faster headland turns.
  • TerraGlide™ suspended front axle: The improved and patented TerraGlide™ suspended front axle provides the ultimate in traction, stability and smoothness. It's standard on models equipped with the 31-mph transmission and optional on other models. This patented axle suspension system uses a simple design with fewer moving parts than other brands and doesn't compromise the turning radius—a significant advantage when maneuvering in tight spaces or turning at the headland.
Cab Features
  • Smoothest, quietest, most spacious cab in the business: New Holland tractors are known for their superior comfort and operator convenience, and T8 tractors continue that tradition with a cab that puts you in complete control.
  • Absolute driving pleasure: Everything about the T8 cab reduces effort and time. The long T8 wheelbase provides stability that smoothes out bumps and turns, allowing for fast, nimble handling. And, the cab has more space and more glass. Stretch out your legs and take in the outstanding view over the slim, sculpted hood and curved fenders. It's the best visibility there is for a tractor this size. Choose the optional Auto Comfort™ air suspension seat for automatic precision damping that reduces vibration as much as 40%.
  • Comfort Ride™ cab suspension: Another factor that makes this New Holland cab the smoothest in the business is the simple, but unique Comfort Ride™ cab suspension system. Isolation mounting at the front of the cab and spring/dampers at the rear reduce movement coming from either axle. The smooth ride allows you to travel faster both on the road and in the field to complete jobs faster.
  • Award-winning Sidewinder™ II armrest: Now, even the largest New Holland tractors feature the Sidewinder II armrest—winner of the prestigious AE50 and GOOD DESIGN™ awards. This patented armrest electronically glides forward or back to adjust to the perfect position for every operator. At the front of the armrest is the CommandGrip™ multi-function controller that provides fingertip access to your most frequently used controls.
  • Quiet comfort: With a decibel rating as low as 68dB, the T8 cab provides a hushed and comfortable environment —exactly the kind of place you want to work.
Maintenance Features
  • No-Hassle servicing: T8 tractors save you time in the field and during routine maintenance. You can complete daily fluid checks quickly, without opening the hood.
  • Daily maintenance from one point: Complete daily servicing at just one central location, from the ground, without opening any doors, panels or the hood. Check and fill engine oil, coolant, hydraulic oil and fuel in one side of the tractor, and inspect, clean and replace the cab air filter, as well.
  • Extended service intervals: By using earth-friendly “green” oil filters that put oil through an ultra-filtration process, New Holland saves you both time and money. You replace only the element, not the whole canister. Compared to previous model tractors, T8 service intervals for engine oil, oil filter and fuel filter have doubled from 300 to 600 hours. That means you have to stop less frequently for maintenance, decreasing downtime and maintenance costs, too.
  • New hood and cooling system design: The new T8 hood design not only looks good and enhances your forward visibility, it also provides optimum cooling. The new venting provides excellent airflow to improve the efficiency of the cooling system. A new, higher performance radiator uses thinner tubes spaced more closely together, a deeper core and higher heat transfer density for maximum cooling efficient.
Technology Features
  • Advanced features that are easy to operate: T8 tractors employ the very latest technology to increase the productivity of your operation, decrease operating costs and make your work easier overall.
  • Fully integrated IntelliSteer™ guidance: T8 and T9 Series tractors can be specified with the fully integrated IntelliSteer™ automatic guidance system, so you can take advantage of GPS technology for near-perfect row spacing and repeatability throughout the season. Choose from four levels of accuracy to match your needs and your budget.
  • New IntelliView™ III display: At the front of the Sidewinder II armrest is the state-of-the-art IntelliView™ III touch-screen display. It not only gives you the information you need at a glance, it also gives you quick access and control of key functions. The intuitive layout makes it easy to use.
  • Impressive fuel savings with Ground Speed Management: How's this for easy—just set your forward speed and allow your T8 tractor to select the correct gear and engine speed based on the load on the tractor. It means less fatigue for you and your drivers and better overall fuel efficiency. Field testing indicates you will gain fuel savings up to 20%. The other bonus is that drivers can concentrate on traffic while travelling on the road, and on the field and implement performance when working.
Versatility Features
  • Maximum versatility: T8 tractors are valued partners in a wide variety of applications.
  • Productivity in the field: T8 tractors help you to achieve unprecedented efficiency during field work. When working with PTO applications like large square balers and manure spreaders, T8 Engine Power Management provides a controlled response to increased loads, directing more power to the PTO when needed to help get through tough spots. The Intelliview™ III monitor gives you maximum control by making it easy to adjust remote flows and timers, and to add and monitor up to three cameras.
  • Smooth, high-speed transport: The supreme smoothness of T8 tractors, resulting from the long wheelbase as well as superior cab suspension and optional suspended axle, means you will move between jobs with incredible speed. The fixed front axle reduces steering wander for improved safety. Engine braking reduces wear on brake pads and reduces brake fade on long downhill runs, so you can haul heavy loads with confidence.
  • Mowing efficiency: You'll increase your haymaking efficiency during haymaking, and the Auto PTO feature protects drivelines, and can be adjusted to turn on and off at different heights. A new proportional PTO valve provides soft starts on high inertia equipment, protecting both tractor and implement from failure. The Custom Headland Management system simplifies the repetitive functions of mowing and other haymaking activities. You can insert pauses into the sequence of memorized tasks and reply them at the end of each pass with the push of a button. And, don't forget how the integrated front three-point hitch and PTO make T8 tractors an ideal match for mega cutter applications.
  • Row crop control: An impressive turning radius makes T8 tractors ideal row-crop tractors. The front three-point hitch makes it easy to add ballast when needed or to handle front fertilizer tanks, or to operate hydraulic motors. The New Holland hydraulic system gives you precise control for sensitive implements, and the MegaFlow™ option provides a split-circuit advantage that other tractors do not offer. New Holland's extensive row-crop lighting packages allow you to work the rows no matter what the hour.
