POWERED, PRODUCTIVE AND SUSTAINABLE BY NATURE
The New Holland T6 Methane Power is the world’s first 100% methane powered production tractor, and is key to completing the virtuous cycle of the Energy Independent Farm system. Farmers grow crops and use waste products to generate biomethane, which powers the tractor, which, in turn, helps to grow those very crops.
FUEL FLEXIBILITY - Become energy self-sufficient by using biomethane from your biodigester or compressed natural gas (CNG) as fuel.
TRUE SUSTAINABILITY - 98% less particulate matter was produced compared to European Stage V emission limits. With biomethane, a 10 to 15% reduction in CO2 is achieved.
PROVEN ENGINE TECHNOLOGY - FPT Industrial has over 20 years of experience and produced over 50,000 natural gas engines to date.
SAME PERFORMANCE. GREATER SAVINGS. - Same power, torque and durability as its diesel counterpart, but with an estimated 30% reduction in running costs.
YOUR SUSTAINABLE FARMING PARTNER
For over a decade, New Holland is established as the Clean Energy Leader for its active promotion and development of renewable fuels, emissions reduction systems and sustainable agricultural technology. New Holland offers the farmers of today and tomorrow the widest choice of accessible solutions that improve efficiency and productivity, whilst respecting the environment. Rooted in the belief that farmers can use technology to help them reduce their dependence on fossil fuels, the New Holland Clean Energy Leader® strategy is based on four key pillars: Alternative Fuels, Efficient Productivity, Sustainable Farming and being a Committed Company.
The power and torque produced by the methane engine are comparable to those of a standard production T6 tractor.
This means that the T6 Methane Power responds in exactly the same way and enables you to complete the same tasks as before, just more sustainably and with a reduced operating cost.
The T6 Methane Power features an all-new NEF 6.7L engine specifically developed for agricultural applications by FPT Industrial, a leader in natural gas powertrain technology, with over 20 years’ experience and 50,000 natural gas engines produced to date.
SIMPLE AFTER TREATMENT TECHNOLOGY
Methane and biomethane are incredibly clean burning fuels, with up to 80% lower polluting emission
HORIZON™ CAB. MORE SPACE, BETTER VISIBILITY.
Want all around visibility? The New Holland’s industry leading Horizon™ cab is the solution. In the yard, in the field or on the road, you have an uninterrupted, productivity enhancing view. The new sun-visor protects you from the harshest rays. Working with front loaders? Select the high visibility, fully openable transparent roof hatch, which affords a perfect view at maximum extension from the comfort of your seat. Never lose a grain or suffer a crick in your neck ever again. Whisper quiet comfort is courtesy of a mere 70.5dB(A) cab noise level.
THE ULTIMATE IN FARMING COMFORT
New Holland brings to you the best-in class seat offering, with four different models providing you with a wide and comprehensive choice. All seats benefit from improved cushioning. These firmer, more durable seat cushions provide outstanding comfort whatever the terrain. A standard, full-sized upholstered instructor seat folds down to provide a work surface when not in use.
GREAT MANOEUVRABILITY, IMPROVED TRACTION, HIGHER OUTPUTS.
New Holland’s range of axles is engineered to perfectly match your requirements. All T6 tractors can be specified with structurally light but strong front axles to fully exploit a front loader or linkage. An overall maximum gross vehicle weight of 10500kg on all models, when combined with perfect weight distribution and efficient ballasting optimises traction and means you’ve got even more flexibility when using heavy mounted implements or when ballasting. All models benefit from a 2642mm wheelbase which ensures a 4300mm turning radius for ultimate manoeuvrability. All T6’s come with a robust 275mm flanged rear axle as standard. For operations looking for ultimate flexibility.
THE TRANSMISSION GEARED FOR YOU
New Holland knows that every farm has different requirements, and that intelligent innovation also means offering tried and tested solutions to improve efficiency. The semi powershift Electro Command™ transmission offers clutchless gear changes to reduce fatigue, and gear shifting is taken care of for you with the addition of the optional Auto Modes.
DYNAMIC OPERATION IN EVERY SITUATION.
The Dynamic Command™ transmission, fruit of extensive customer consultation and an intensive research, development and testing process, is now available on the T6 Methane Power. Designed to offer even more gears in the most frequently used operating ranges, this will enable you to perfectly match the speed of your T6 to the task in hand. Furthermore, the ability to deliver near instantaneous direction changes makes field, but especially loader work even easier and more efficient.
PRODUCTIVITY AND FLEXIBILITY GUARANTEED
New Holland knows that full integration by design is the best option. That is why the T6 was designed with front loaders and front linkage in mind. The T6 is fully compatible with the wide frame New Holland 600LA and 700LA range’s of front loaders: the perfect productivity combination. Moreover, you’ll always have a perfect view of your load at full extension from the comfort of your seat thanks to the optional high visibility, transparent roof hatch. Moreover, you no longer have to choose between front loader or front linkage, with the T6 you can have both.
HYDRAULIC POWER AND PTO FLEXIBILITY
Have you ever thought about just how much hydraulic flow you actually need? All T6 Methane Power tractors are fitted with a Closed Centre Load Sensing (CCLS) hydraulic system as standard. Delivering 121 litres/minute that will power even the most demanding implements including specialist vegetable harvesters. If that wasn’t enough, New Holland has engineered the CCLS system to operate at peak efficiency. The benefit? Full hydraulic power is always available at the remote valves and linkage, but only as much as is needed. The result? Reduced fuel consumption. Regardless of how hard your tractor is working, the steering will always remain light and easy to use, and loader cycle times remain uncompromised thanks to a separate 47 litres/minute service pump or optional 67 litres/minute pump when fitted with Class 4 front axle.
THREE LEVELS OF FACTORY-FITTED ACCURACY
When ordering your T6, you can choose between three guidance packages. This means that your T6 will arrive direct from the factory with the exact accuracy level you require. Choose your accuracy level right down to the most precise 1.5cm option. A must for high value vegetable or bulb farming.
Using data from MyPLM®Connect, skilled technicians analyze specific triggers in the cloud to implement solutions as required. If an issue is identified, the system proactively sends an alert to dealers with the corrective action. Then dealers can prepare in-field or remote assistance and in addition New Holland can support the process to find the quickest solution. That’s New Holland’s commitment to its customers.
A DREAM MADE TRUE
New Holland Agriculture is already imagining the future of farming, where farmers will be able to provide for all of their own energy requirements. This concept is based on the principal that they can recycle and transform, what are today considered to be mere by-products, into useful energy, alongside the integrated use of renewable energy, such as that generated from solar, wind and biomass sources. New Holland is actively engaged in this challenge, and has continually developed innovative solutions which will enable tomorrow’s farmers to capitalise on these advantages.
