New Holland has just launched a completely new line of tractors – the Series TT – to compete in the highly competitive, low horsepower end of the market. The two-model series, which perfectly compliments the existing TDD range, offers the perfect entry-point to the New Holland brand experience. It aims to hit the low-cost, low-spec market head-on with units that are simple to operate and easy to maintain with low running costs.

The two models, the TT55 and TT75 are rated at 40.5kW (55 Hp) and 55.1 kW (75 Hp) respectively. They are manufactured at New Holland’s purpose-built US$55 million facility in Delhi, India.

“The range will directly compete with low-cost Indian, Korean and Chinese produced models, and not compromise on quality,” said New Holland Marketing Manager, Simon Vigour.

The models are ideally suited to small acreages such as hobby farms, market gardens and small livestock operations and their robust, yet uncomplicated design, will please those customers with a low desire for technology and a high desire for self maintenance.

“The TT range meets the high standards and quality farmers have come to expect from New Holland tractors,” Simon said. “Our India facility, which has been in operation since 1999, features the latest in modern manufacturing with world-class quality control and an annual capacity of 30,000 units.

“All personnel have been trained in the latest New Holland production techniques and the plant features in-house design, engineering and state-of-the-art test facilities. The strictest control processes are adhered to and proudly, in 2001, the plant was the only tractor manufacturer in India to be awarded the coveted ISO 9001:2000 certification.”

The TT series specifications include a choice of three or four cylinder engine, depending on the model, with a fuel-efficient 2.9L or 3.9L capacity. On the TT55, a torque rise of 26.7 per cent is delivered, while on the TT75, torque rise is 18.5 per cent.“The TT models offer simple, efficient drivelines with minimal electrics which ensure they’re easy to maintain and keep running costs at a minimum,” Simon said. “Both models feature side mounted gears which provide easy access onto the platform and a durable 8 x 2 partially synchronized transmission.”

There are also two ranges of four forward and one reverse speeds with an independent PTO operating at 540rpm. Other features include mechanical hydraulics with “Lift-O-MaticTM” control for a fast and maximum lift of 1,525kg through the lifting range.

The TT55 and TT75 are offered in either two or four wheel drive with a fixed ROPS and canopy as standard.
