New Holland Agriculture showcased its new products for customers at the second annual Nampo event, the Nampo Cape 2019, held in Bredasdorp, South Africa from 4 to 6 September.

The new New Holland T5.S Electro Command™ & TS6.120 High Clearance tractors, the Guardian™ SP310F front boom sprayer, the CR7.90 IntelliSence™ combine and - most importantly for the Western Cape region - the TD3.50F tractor for vineyards and orchards made their debut in the Western Cape province of South Africa, being presented to farmers and customers at the show. 

During the show, New Holland also organised a customer day on 5 September at its stand (71 & 78). The customer-dedicated day was divided into two sessions allowing clients to explore the new products while interacting with the New Holland sales & product marketing team.

New TD3.50F tractor extends New Holland’s extensive offering for South African orchard and vineyard farmers

If we talk about the vineyard & citrus producers then the new TD3.50F is the ideal solution for working with table grape vineyards. New Holland TD3.50F ROPS platform 4WD & 2WD tractors have earned a reputation for dependable and versatile performance in the sub-50 hp group. Combined with a proven record for whole low lifetime operating costs, the TD3.50F is the tractor of choice for vineyards, orchards and as a general workhorse across a huge range of enterprises.

By reducing the overall length, stability is also improved, the tractor having a longer wheelbase to boost its performance when fitted with a front loader or heavy mounted attachment. With its stylish new look, wide platform improved comfort & proven rugged build, the TD3.50F now provides even better performance & value.

Meanwhile, the Guardian™ SP310F front boom sprayer is the easiest method to spray, combining rugged construction with an innovative design that saves time. With the boom in front, you never look back as the operator gets the best view of the spray nozzles & the field ahead to confidently cover ground faster. And with redesigned lift arms and a chassis with 1.8-metre clearance, the SP310F gives an even more unobstructed view. The spray is delivered into the crop before the tyres go over it, removing the potential for dust to neutralize the spray. Tanks are available with 3,800 or 4,500-litre capacity & there are 5 available boom sizes, ranging from 27 - 41 metres. 

The T5.S Electro Command™ Series tractors are fitted with the FPT Industrial S8000 4-cylinder engine with intercooled turbocharger, with 3 models offering power outputs of 65kW, 72kW and 81kW. The Electro Command™ semi-automatic transmission, with 16 forward & 16 reverse gears, differentiates this tractor from other tractor available in market.

 The TS6.120 High Clearance tractor is characterised by unprecedented ground clearance of 645mm plus a rated power output of 88kW, enabling use with greater implements to boost productivity. When connected to a 16x8 dual-power synchronized hydraulic shuttle with creeper transmission & with 83 l/min hydraulic pump flow, this tractor can do all the spraying needed. A 540/1,000 rpm PTO is part of the package.

 The CR7.90 IntelliSence™ combine has the powerful 449 hp FPT Industrial Cursor 9 engine & the Twin Rotor™ technology that achieves best-in-class grain & straw quality. Grain cracking, at an industry-leading level of just 0.1 percent, is a thing of the past. Opti-Clean™ ensures the cleanest grain sample & there are two types of the rotor to choose from. Advanced harvesting technology, including IntelliSteer® auto-guidance, means that harvesting can continue around the clock without stopping.
