New Holland's 175-258hp combine range well suited to majority of Irish customers
New Holland's upgrade of its TC5000 range of five straw-walker conventional combines is possibly of greater relevance to the Irish machinery market.
The segment leader, the TC5060, TC5070 and TC5080 develop between 175 and 258 harvesting horsepower. New Holland is firmly targeting the TC5000 range at the world's mid-sized arable farmers, large-scale livestock operations and contractors.
The cab itself is 27pc larger, with a 23pc increased glazed area for enhanced visibility and with a noise level of just 74dBA.
The redesigned right-hand console contains all principal controls to enable intuitive calibration of key harvesting parameters, including sieve settings.
The command grip, which will be familiar to users of the T6, T7, T8 and T9 New Holland tractor ranges, manages all header and unloading operations.
Six roof-mounted and two header lights illuminate the field ahead to maintain night-time harvesting efficiency and safety. A Bluetooth MP3 radio, a removable cool box and a full-sized instructor seat add a touch of harvesting luxury.
This range of TC combines can also avail of the 4.87-6.03m heavy duty Varifeed headers, featuring up to 575mm of knife adjustment for crop-to-crop flexibility in all working conditions.
