New Holland Agriculture • www.agriculture.newholland.com T7 Long Wheel Base Series New Holland Agriculture introduces a major upgrade to the T7 Long Wheel Base (LWB) range in the shape of a new suspended front axle. The combination of new axle geometry, low-friction hub bearings and a new hydraulic steering unit delivers superb feedback and control to the driver. The self-centering characteristic designed into the axle reduces steering corrections to a minimum, especially at high speed. The tractor's front suspension has also undergone a major update. To provide improved performance over the wide variation of front axle loads encountered on a tractor, a new control valve with dual accumulators has been added. The T7 LWB utilizes a suspension concept known as Skyhook. This active system aims to keep the tractor in a level condition regardless of external forces. Such as an implement being raised or lowered, or the tractor braking or accelerating, actions where weight can be transferred on and off the front axle causing instability. The upgraded T7 goes as far as weighing the rear implement to determine how stiff to make the suspension to reduce the risk of excessive suspension travel at high speed. This advanced control results in a very stable vehicle.
