The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) has named New Holland Agriculture’s Horizon Ultra tractor cab a 2022 AE50 award winner.
The AE50 awards program emphasises the role of new products and systems in bringing advanced technology to the marketplace. These engineering developments help farmers increase efficiency, enhance quality, improve safety, and increase profits.
Each year, 50 winners are selected by ASABE, and New Holland Agriculture say they are pleased to be among the 2022 recipients.
Carlo Lambro, brand president New Holland Agriculture, said, “It is always an honour to be included in ASABE’s AE50 annual award winners. These awards are a testament to the strength of the New Holland teams around the world: from the engineers who design our latest innovations to our field teams who work in the field side by side with our farmers to identify our next opportunities, and every step of the journey in between.”
New Holland say the winning Horizon Ultra cab is the quietest in the industry - registering no more than 66 decibels. In addition to the noise reduction, the cab has been expanded overall by 8% compared to prior models. They say the enlarged frame creates more comfortable and functional room for the operator and extra storage space.
Intuitive operation is via ergonomically located controls on the new SideWinder Ultra armrest and IntelliView 12-inch display.
