New Holland TS6 Series Tractor

Chuck Zimmerman

Lean and mean is how New Holland is describing their new all purpose TS6 Series tractors. These tractors are made in Mexico. I spoke with Thierry Mahe, General Manager at the production facility. He says they’ve had a limited release of these tractors and based on the success of that launch they’ve now ramped up production for a full launch.

The four TS6 models range from 90- to 115-PTO horsepower: two models are equipped with 4-cylinder engines and two models feature 6-cylinder engines. All four models are available with either 2WD or 4WD, and with a flat-deck ROPS operator station or an all-weather cab.

TS6 tractors are available with a choice of three rugged transmissions: an 8F x 8R synchronized transmission with mechanical shuttle, an 8F x 8R synchronized transmission with hydraulic shuttle and a 16F x 8R DualPowerTM transmission with hydraulic shuttle. The DualPower transmission has an underdrive for each forward gear to provide more torque at the push of a button. An optional 4-speed creeper range is available for all transmissions.
