Doing it all with one piece of equipment is something both farmers and construction workers would like to do, which explains why one of the most interesting pieces of equipment at the New Holland Construction Media Event held recently at company headquarters in New Holland, Pa., was one of their tractor-loader-backhoes. Jon Hume, product specialist with New Holland, told Chuck about one of their most popular TLB models, the B95c.
“The reason it is very popular is it has a lot of unique features,” Jon said, including a straight-arm loader and the ability to put multiple attachments with quick couplers on the front. Moving back, he said you’ll notice a big roomy cab with air conditioning and heat and a four-speed transmission with a top road speed of over 22 mph. “And as you swing around to the backhoe, the important part, we have mechanical controls or this one has pilot controls [that] allow us to have different change patterns between backhoe and excavator,” so that different operators can change patterns with a flip of the switch.
Jon said it’s all these features and more that really separate New Holland from the competition.
