The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) has named the Horizon Ultra tractor cab as an AE50 award winner. The award programme emphasises the role of new products and systems in bringing advanced technology to the marketplace and each year 50 winners are selected.
Carlo Lambro, brand president of New Holland Agriculture, stated: “It is always an honour to be included in ASABE’s AE50 annual award winners. These awards are a testament to the strength of the New Holland teams around the world: from the engineers who design our latest innovations to our field teams who work in the field side by side with our farmers to identify our next opportunities, and every step of the journey in between.”
The Horizon Ultra cab is said to be the quietest in the industry, registering no more than 66 decibels. In addition to this, the cabin has been expanded by 8% compared to the prior model, offering a more comfortable and functional room for the operator and extra storage space.
Controls are located on the new Sidewinder Ultra armrest, alongside the user-friendly IntelliView 12-inch display. The controls can be configured by the operator and customisation is as simple or as extensive as required. The CenterView display is located in the centre of the steering wheel and provides a clear line of sight.
Class-leading climate control with zone selection offers 35% more capacity than the previous model to maintain a comfortable temperature in all seasons. There is also the Auto Comfort seat with lateral suspension and a climate control system that extracts moisture on hot days or warms on cold mornings.
It also introduces integration with New Hollands PLM Intelligence precision farming systems. The new electronic architecture will be adopted in all new equipment so that customers find the same logic when switching machines and can easily access data to get the job done more efficiently.
