The New
Holland
T8 Series tractors combine a long wheelbase in a limited-overall length
tractor for maneuverability, stability, operator comfort and versatility. The
136-inch (11 ft. 4 inch) wheelbase, combined with a sculpted hood and frame,
provides tight turning performance for row-crop applications. The long
wheelbase also provides improved ballasting capability. The fully integrated,
close-coupled front hitch and PTO mean that while the T8 tractors are built to
suit heavy tillage and high-capacity hay-cutting applications, the tractors are
also engineered for secondary cultivation, manure spreading and other transport
applications plus operations with a full-range of front-mounted implements.

This
tractor also provides operator comfort with lower in-cab noise levels, and
improved ergonomics. The "saddle" front axle suspension provides for
a 61 per cent increase in suspended load capacity and a 31 per cent reduction
in cab bounce for ride and stability in field or road travel.

The New
Holland
T9.560 tractor has a large row-crop frame. The chassis has been
configured to allow it to be used in row-crop applications requiring 60-inch
tread settings and up to 500 rated engine horsepower. The ability to
accommodate larger diameter tires improves the traction with narrow tires
required in row-crop applications.

The
T9.560 provides hydraulic flow to power large planters and seeders in the
planting season and also is equipped with the PTO option to power grain carts
during harvest. The tractor also includes the option of a four-corner cab
suspension. The hood and cooling package were designed with consideration both
for improved visibility over the hood and to provide easy access for cleaning
the coolers.
