New Holland Agriculture in Europe has announced the release of new Tier 5-compliant Boomer tractor models which the company says packs bigger performance while maintaining its compact size.
Its European product marketing manager for compact tractors Edoardo Ronco said the Boomer range would offer an extensive choice of models from landscaping to golf course maintenance, from hobby and part-time farmers to homeowners, from greenhouses to orchards and vineyards.
The new Tier 5 emissions-compliant range delivered more performance and efficiency but also significant benefits for the operator including a wider choice of models available with the high-comfort cab, he said.
"The Boomer range has been extended with two new Class 3 models, the 47 horsepower (35 kilowatts) Boomer 45 and the 57hp (42.5kW) Boomer 55, so that it covers the power segment close to 60hp (44.7kW)."
All Class 2 and Class 3 models will be available with the high-comfort Boomer Suite which offers improved visibility and ergonomic controls.
The revamped dashboard features a new vehicle speed LCD readout shown on the instrument panel which facilitates operation.
The new Boomer range also enhances operator comfort and reduces fatigue with a host of features. On models with hydrostatic transmission they include the standard Cruise Control.
Class 3 cab models featuring this transmission will also offer the new Servo Hydraulic Assist option which reduces the effort required to operate the pedal to a minimum.
Models with hydrostatic transmission are now available with the EZ Speed function which co-ordinates the forward hydrostatic pedal and engine speed, resulting in better efficiency and versatility.
When the operator activates it and the hand throttle is in the low position, the engine will speed up when the hydrostatic pedal is pushed.
This ensures they have the right engine speed and the right ground speed available whenever they need it.
A new auto PTO feature, easy to activate with a switch, automatically turns off the PTO when the three-point hitch is raised and re-engages when it is lowered.
The tractors have three-cylinder turbocharged engines featuring common rail direct injection technology and a larger radiator and cooling fan.
The Boomer range is supported by an extensive choice of tyres which includes agriculture, industrial and flotation tyres for turf.
