New Holland has expanded its T7 tractor range with three base-spec Essential-badged models that offer the same performance as existing machines, but in a more affordable package.
The T7.165 S, T7.195 S and T7.215 S offer rated powers of 150hp, 175hp and 190hp and are all powered by a six-cylinder NEF engine. Maximum power on each climbs to 165hp, 190hp and 210hp.
The smallest model is fitted with New Holland’s 18-speed, 40kph Range Command semi-powershift transmission (with the option of creeper speeds) and has a wheelbase of 2,734mm.

Set on a longer wheelbase of 2,884mm, the T7.195 S and T7.215 S versions use a 18×6 Power Command full-powershift transmission and have a rear linkage lift capacity of up to 10,463kg with optional 110mm rear lift rams.
For loader work, the T7.165 S comes with a decent hydraulic flow, electronic loader joystick, automatic four-wheel drive, and the option of Custom Steer to reduce wheel rotations from lock to lock.
Other paid-for extras include an LED lighting package, cab suspension, front axle suspension and SuperSteer, which increases the steering angle by 10deg.
