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="http://farmindustrynews.com/tractors/test-drive-new-hollands-genesis-t8-smarttrax" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://farmindustrynews.com/tractors/test-drive-new-hollands-genesis-t8-smarttrax#comments Tractors Tractors Mon, 25 Aug 2014 13:29:00 +0000 72111 at http://farmindustrynews.com New Holland's GenesisT8 Series SmartTrax combines wheels, tracks http://farmindustrynews.com/tractors/new-hollands-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="http://farmindustrynews.com/tractors/new-hollands-genesist8-series-smarttrax-combines-wheels-tracks" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://farmindustrynews.com/tractors/new-hollands-genesist8-series-smarttrax-combines-wheels-tracks#comments Tractors New Holland Tractors Mon, 25 Aug 2014 13:18:00 +0000 72101 at http://farmindustrynews.com <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 http://farmindustrynews.com/tractors/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.
