Following a successful European debut in July, New Holland has launched its T7 Heavy Duty tractor in Australia and New Zealand.
The flagship of the 11 model T7 range, the T7 Heavy Duty includes Precision Land Management Intelligence to help farmers achieve maximum precision and efficiency.
The T7 HD's three models range from 186 kilowatts to 224kW (250 to 300 horsepower) and it maintains the powerful performance, exceptional agility and outstanding versatility that are the hallmark of this tractor.
On-farm delivery of the first tractors is expected in mid-2022.
New Holland mixed farming and livestock product segment manager Ben Mitchell, said the T7 HD PLMi tractor was created from the first-hand feedback from operators on what important inclusions they are looking for in their machinery.
"We listened to our customers and found they expect more - more comfort, space and connectivity," he said.
"With the integration of the new generation of PLM Intelligence, the T7 HD is ideal for operators who need to multi-task in a variety of fields and transport applications, and look for a boost to their comfort, efficiency and productivity.
"Farmers can easily do more in their operation and be remotely connected to dealers and support services, increasing overall efficiency and profitability."

Mr Mitchell said the brand-new Horizon Ultra cab provides a comfortable work environment with clean, uncluttered surfaces and intuitive operation with ergonomically located controls on the new SideWinder Ultra armrest and user-friendly IntelliView 12-inch display.
Controls can be configured to match the operator's preferences, and a range of customisation features are included that enable operators to personalise their tractor.
"The redesign has further improved visibility by increasing the total glass area by 11 per cent, while cameras keep a safe watch on the area around the tractor," Mr Mitchell said.
"A new work light package with up to 24 LED lights totalling an impressive 45,600 lumens further ensures visibility around the tractor and implement is maintained into the night.
"Topping off the features of the new cab is the industry leading 66dBA sound level, ensuring a whisper quiet ride, while enjoying the multi-zone climate control."
New Holland precision land management product segment manager Chris Camilleri said the T7 HD introduces the next-generation PLM Intelligence, which represents a step forward in New Holland's strategy.
"The technology marks the shift from traditional farming practices to agriculture 4.0, where precision and interconnected farming assists farmers to plan all operations in advance, manage in real-time the behaviour and performance of each machine, and achieve maximum precision and efficiency," Mr Camilleri said.
"The next-generation PLM Intelligence will be adopted in all New Holland next-generation machinery, so that customers will find the same logic when switching machines and can easily access data to get the job done more efficiently."
New Holland's advanced connectivity also helps operators to minimise downtime while on-farm.
"Through the MyNewHolland App, customers can register their machine, retrieve its technical information and access the MyPLMConnect portal," Mr Camilleri said.
"Operators can manage their fleet and farm data in a single environment, while receiving dynamic information in real time from individual machines to make informed decisions."
