New Holland brings its celebration of 100 years of blue tractor manufacturing to the Royal Welsh Show, with the support of Welsh machinery dealers. Show visitors will get a taste of what a century of innovation looks like as New Holland displays its latest range of tractors alongside vintage models.
Representatives from New Holland’s Welsh machinery dealers, Teme Valley, JG Plant, T Alun Jones, Malpas, Gwili Jones, JE Lawrence and Menai will walk and talk visitors through the different machines on the stand and explain the history of blue tractor production.
The 100-year blue tractor manufacturing anniversary display is the latest in a year-long calendar of events in association with the Blue Force tractor enthusiast club. A 1926 Fordson F series, owned by a Blue Force club member and a Fordson Dexta, owned by Blue Force Chairman Philip Gibson will feature on the stand, alongside the latest New Holland tractor models, including the new T5.105 Utility.
New Holland has recently expanded its T5 tractor range with an additional five models, to complete its mid-range tractor line up. The latest T5 Utility models offer between 75 and 114 hp and continues the heritage of New Holland’s well-regarded T5000 series, including 24x24 Dual Command™ transmission, capable performance and compact size, all at a competitive price.
The 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.
Loader-ready, the T5 Utility models 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 also available, offering a lift capacity of 1,670 kg combined with a 1000-speed PTO.
The larger, three-model T5 Tier 4B Electro Command range launched in 2016, offers between 99 and 117hp with a semi powershift ElectroCommand™ transmission, upgraded styling and optional cab and axle suspension.
Visitors to Royal Welsh Show looking for a compact tractor can take a closer look at New Holland’s Boomer series, with three models on display, the Boomer 20, Boomer 30 and Boomer 50.
The six-model Boomer range is built to make jobs easier and is ideal for homeowners, stable yards, smallholders, golf courses, landscapers, and small horticulture applications. Available with power outputs between 27 and 47hp, the Boomer’s responsive and efficient engine combines with maneuverability, comfort, and big-tractor reliability for the ultimate compact workhorse. The Boomer 50 boasts the highest horsepower of the range and is perfect for yard work on farm.
Also on display is New Holland’s extensively renewed and upgraded RollBaler 125 which offers the best choice in fixed round chamber baling for silage or straw - even when working with heavy grass, dense hay or large, dry, brittle straw swaths.
Boasting a new, wider pick-up measuring 2.3m, giving an additional 10 cm on the previous model, the RollBaler 125 delivers best-in-class efficiency. A new, advanced roller reduces crop losses even in dry conditions, ensuring consistent and superior bale density.
