New Holland introduces the T9 SmartTrax heavy horsepower 4WD tractor with PLM Intelligence. High road speed and maneuverability in the field and on the road, are 2 important assets for this New Holland flagship.

“The T9 SmartTrax with PLM Intelligence is more than an enhanced track system,” explains Ken Paul, product marketing manager, high horsepower tractors for New Holland. “It showcases a suite of best-in-class features designed to elevate performance and simplify routine maintenance.”

The inclusion of advanced oscillating roller wheels and vibration dampening mount suspension in the track system, contributes to elevated ride quality and prevents uneven wear during field-to-field transportation. To ensure ease of daily maintenance, clear track system hubcaps have been integrated, providing straightforward access to critical components. The new track system for the T9 tractor also streamlines maintenance and optimizes tension by eliminating manual adjustments with its automatic track tensioning system. This update can contribute to lengthening the lifespan of the track belt.

The new T9 consists of 5 models: T9.520, T9.580, T9.615, T9.655 and T9.700, ranging from 475 to 645 rated horsepower. The SmartTrax system ensures performance in a variety of terrains while enhancing overall operational performance and preserving the integrity of the field environment.

Speed and maneuverability are two of the biggest benefits operators will notice with the SmartTrax system. Coupling access to a range of different high horsepower T9 models and an increase in top vehicle speed for optimal efficiency, road speed now goes up to 25 mph (40 km/h). This ensures quicker and more efficient field-to-field transportation.

The T9 SmartTrax has multiple track belt options available. They include two width choices: 30-inch and 36-inch (75 and 90 cm) and three different belt brands to choose from.

Other advancements include a 47% increase in fuel capacity, which was enhanced due to the design of the SmartTrax system and its lower profile on the tractor in comparison to the fuel tank. Fuel capacity stands now at 455 gallons (2,482 liter), contributing to extended run time and reduction in refueling stops.

Another feature incorporated into the design of the T9 SmartTrax is swinging cab entry steps. These automatically pivot as the tractor is articulated, keeping the ladder from extending beyond the tracks and allowing for easier entry and exit from the cab.

The T9 SmartTrax will be available for model year 2025.
