TMfront linkage option

NEW Holland TM tractors equipped with SuperSteer front axles now have the option of a front linkage which comes as standard with a pto and 3.5t lift capacity.

The front linkage, says New Holland, has been designed specifically to work with the SuperSteer axle, which allows a turning angle of 65í.

Industrial ball joints are fitted at pivot points to allow smooth operation and long life.

Multi-use valves are designed to enable simple switching from single to double acting or transport settings, while the lift arms can be set in a folding, floating or fixed position.

The pto contains a multi-plate clutch which has its own hydraulic system which operates independently of the tractors system to ensure heat is rapidly dissipated.

Electro-hydraulic control using a proportional valve is said to achieve soft engagement, and engagement time can be set from the tractor cab.

Price of the linkage is listed at £2878. &#42
