The show, which was held near Bothaville, in the Free State, South Africa, saw three models launched ranging from 27 to 36 kW. The TT Compact tractors combine versatility with powerful performance, good fuel efficiency and low emissions.

Available in two- or four-wheel drive, the tractors have been designed to be very easy to use and service. They are well-suited for these markets, where farmers look for manoeuvrable and versatile tractors they can use for soil preparation, to operate implements and pull trailers, and for transport from one plot to another.

The seating and layout of the controls are designed to maximise comfort when the operator needs to spend long hours on the driver’s seat, as well as to make it easy to get on and off when necessary.

The levers have been positioned to the side, so that the driver can easily and comfortably change gears. The instrument cluster includes an rpm meter, a digital hour-meter, fuel gauge, water temperature gauge and warning lights for battery changing and oil pressure.

New Holland’s trademark one-piece rear hinged sloping engine hood and side-mounted exhaust provide an unobstructed view to the front.

The 27, 31 and 36 kW three-cylinder engines deliver power, fuel efficiency and low emissions. They feature a wet air cleaner with over bonnet pre-cleaner and dual spin on filters with optional water trap, which enables them to operate in the harshest environments.

The TT Compact models benefit from New Holland’s focus on the environmental impact of its equipment, Featuring New Holland’s low emissions technology, the TT Compact series performs with emissions well below the levels mandated by local emissions regulations.

The TT Compact series is available with a choice of transmissions: 8x2 standard or optional 8x8 constant mesh with mechanical shuttle, which makes it easy to shuttle shift from forward to reverse. In addition to the standard independent 540-rpm PTO with ground speed, an optional 540/540E rpm PTO is also available for customers who may need a two-speed PTO.

Nampo Harvest Day also saw New Holland exhibit its NH2™ hydrogen powered tractor. New Holland state that the NH2™ is the first hydrogen powered tractor ready to go into service on a farm. It uses fuel cell technology to generate power to run the tractor and to operate implements.

The NH2™ delivers the performance expected of a conventional diesel tractor of the same size, but with zero harmful emissions – only heat and water vapour.

The first NH2™ working unit is expected to begin operating this summer in Italy at ‘La Bellotta’, the first energy independent farm.
