DTN/Progressive Farmer offers this two-minute walk-around of New Holland Ag's T7, 300-horsepower (PTO), Long Wheelbase (LWB) tractor with PLM Intelligence (see video on it at…).

Some of the tractor's highlights:

-- Delivers increased engine power with larger tires, but no increase at all in overall dimension. Ultimate Performance Density, New Holland calls it.

-- 6.7-liter FPT Industrial NEF 6 engine delivers 280 horsepower max power for draft work and 300 horsepower for PTO; max torque at 1,300 rpm.

-- 18% increased fuel capacity (123 gallons); decreased service intervals by 50% (compared to competitors).

-- Larger 81-inch-tall tires; axles provide up to 12.5% greater carrying capacity.

-- 10 buttons around the armrest and CommandGrip can be configured to operator preferences.

-- Equipped with Tractor Implement Management (TIM), two-way communication between the tractor and implements. For example, Integrated Large Square Baler Control with this tractor reduced cab movement by 15% and fuel consumption 12%, while maintaining PTO speed.

-- T7.300 LWB tractor mounts PLM Intelligence system, connects operators and farmers. Includes IntelliView monitor for view of the fieldwork ahead; IntelliSteer autosteering, IntelliTurn automated end-of-row turning.

-- Main connection panel contains ISOBUS, camera and power connectors; multiple USB charging ports and DC power outlet located around cab.

-- Up to four cameras, including wireless option, allow operator to see the view from an off-board camera (i.e., see the view into the grain wagon while offloading the combine); 24 LED lights; a pair of long-range lights mounted to cab rear illuminate corners of wide implements at night.

-- Horizon Ultra Cab is 7.5% larger by volume; 11% more glass; 33% wide cab entry; 14% larger door. Has a 5.3-gallon cooling compartment below the passenger seat.
