Bi-directional tractor

A new tractor from New Holland can be operated cab-end or engine-end first. The TV6070 bi-directional tractor features a Turnabout console that rotates the seat and the controls 180° so the tractor may be operated from front or back. With 3-pt. hitches on both ends, the TV6070 provides speed and versatility. Jobs are completed in less time because attachments are “doubled up.” For example, hay can be cut and conditioned up to 35-ft. wide at a time by pushing a sickle header and pulling another one. Or snow can be removed faster with a snow blower on one end and a blade on the other.

The new tractor model is equipped with a 6.7-liter, fuel-efficient diesel engine and can operate on any diesel fuel or biodiesel blend up to B100. It is rated at 105 PTO hp. The new model features a transmission with eight operating ranges from 0 to 19 mph. The driver selects a range and then has infinite control of the speed with a drive control handle. The ranges may be shifted on the go. In addition, when the tractor senses a steep hill or heavy resistance, it automatically downshifts the range and then returns to the original setting when the load is reduced.

Retail prices start at $91,500 for the base TV6070 and $101,200 for a model with a front-end loader. For more information, contact your New Holland dealer or visit theNew Holland website.
