Tractors en 2015 Consumer Electronics Show: Your next cab <div class="node-body blog-body"><p>Over the weekend I heard a CBS radio interview with Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association, who said one thing that is different with this year&rsquo;s show in Las Vegas is the strong showing of automakers and automotive suppliers. Five car makers displayed their wares this year compared to near to none a decade ago.</p> <p>States Shapiro in an interview: &ldquo;Technology has become more important than horsepower. Consumers are saying, &lsquo;What I have in my home, I want in my car.&rdquo;</p></div> <div class="field-content-focus"> <span>Content Classification:&nbsp;</span> Curated </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul class="links"><li class="og_links first last"><a href="/blog/farm-industry-news-blog">Farm Industry News Blog</a></li> </ul></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Trucks/pickups Tractors Electronics and digital equipment Tractors Farm Industry News Blog Thu, 08 Jan 2015 18:18:00 +0000 75271 at Kioti launches new workhorses for the farm <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Kioti has launched its new PX Ag Tractor Series, and the company says the tractors are designed to be workhorses on the farm.

It is designed with conventional wheels in front for maneuverability and comfort and its SmartTrax tracked system in the back to provide traction and flotation. Nathan Graham, commercial trainer with New Holland, takes us for a ride to point out the features. Judging by its smooth ride, you won&rsquo;t even know there are tracks underneath.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Tractors Tractors Mon, 25 Aug 2014 13:29:00 +0000 72111 at New Holland's GenesisT8 Series SmartTrax combines wheels, tracks <div class="node-body article-body">An innovative approach from New Holland Genesis T8 SmartTrax provides the maneuverability of wheels with the traction and flotation of tracks.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Tractors New Holland Tractors Mon, 25 Aug 2014 13:18:00 +0000 72101 at <p>A Genesis T8 Series SmartTrax has a larger contact patch with the soil, which New Holland says enhances traction and reduces ground pressure and compaction. The contact patch of the 24-inch SmartTrax system is up to 65% larger than a 710/75R42 single rear tire set. The 18-inch SmartTrax system is 35% larger than a set of 480/95R50 rear duals. The reduced ground pressure allows earlier access to drying land and can provide extended working late in the season with a reduced risk of damage to the structure of the soil, New Holland says.</p> Jodie Wehrspann Fendt Launches new 700 Series Tractors <div class="field-byline"> Source: Fendt </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Fendt last week unveiled its new 700 Series tractor line, designed to give buyers a range of sizes and option packages to fit their specific operation.
