New Holland Agriculture has further expanded the already vast T6 range with two new 6-cylinder models that were presented at SIMA 2019: the T6.180 Dynamic Command and the new T6.160 Electro Command.
Sean Lennon, Head of the Tractors product line, explains: “New Holland has a glorious tradition of leadership in this segment, with a wide choice and a unique offer. The new 6-cylinder model introduces in this segment a new level of performance with an extremely versatile tractor that offers more torque, more engine brake and more stability. Today there is more choice than ever for our customers and a T6 that meets the needs of every agricultural activity. “
6-cylinder performance now combined with the award-winning Dynamic Command transmission
The new engine features optimized EGR-free combustion for efficient operation, combined with an HI-eSCR post-treatment system to meet Stage IV emission regulations: a patented and maintenance-free solution that lowers operating costs.
Thanks to the 6-cylinder engine, the T6.180 offers a higher torque of up to 12% compared to 4-cylinder models, with low-end torque that significantly facilitates restarts, and an increase in torque at intermediate speeds which improves the engine’s ability to deal with transport and in the field. The new 6-cylinder engine delivers a maximum torque of 740 Nm at 1500 rpm, compared to the 700 Nm of the 4-cylinder.
Furthermore, the increased displacement of the new engine improves the engine brake in downhill applications and in transfers, thanks to a braking force greater than 50% compared to the 4-cylinder engine. The optional engine brake for 4 and 6 cylinder engines improves the engine’s braking capacity by an additional 24%.
