New Holland's TG Series II tractors, introduced in early 2006, offer performance in pulling power, hydraulic capacity and comfort. Four models, ranging from 175 PTO horsepower to 255 PTO horsepower, provide innovative performance features that maximize productivity and control in row crop and other operations.

With up to 255 PTO horsepower and up to 44 PTO horsepower growth, TG Series II tractors deliver proven power at the drawbar and plenty of lugging power to pull through heavy tillage, discing and ripping jobs. Responding with up to 56 percent PTO torque rise and a power growth of up to 44 horsepower, the six cylinder, turbocharged 8.3 litre New Holland engines increase horsepower as they pull down to lower revolutions per minute in demanding conditions. All models are Tier 3 compliant and have electronic engine management for the convenience and fuel savings of setting a constant engine speed or 'cruise' control. A larger 80 gallon fuel tank provides fuel capacity for up to 18 hours of continuous operation without refuelling.

TG Series II tractors are available with a choice of three transmissions: a standard 18Fx4R powershift transmission; an optional 19Fx4R powershift transmission, which has a special gear that increases fuel economy during transport; and an optional 23Fx6R shift through creeper powershift transmission that is designed with five slower forward and two reverse speeds for working in vegetable, potato or other specialty crops. The operator can engage and disengage the creeper gears at the end of the rows without stopping, with the push of a button.

The most advanced seeders and specialty equipment can be operated with ease with 70 gallons per minute hydraulic flow with the MegaFlow option. Two pumps provide two separate circuits, so two systems, such as a low flow/high pressure system from one remote and a high flow/low pressure system from another remote, can be operated simultaneously without sacrificing performance. Up to five remotes are available. With an optional lift capacity of up to 17,920lb.

TG Series II tractors equipped with New Holland's tight-turning SuperSteer front axle are ideal for row crop work. The TG tractor has a 16.5 foot turning radius, measured with 380/85R34 tires on 30 inch row settings. Headland turns are easy because the SuperSteer axle eliminates 'light bulb' turns at the end of rows. By doing so, it saves travel, fuel consumption and time.

To make headland turns even easier for the operator, a Custom Headland Management system, standard with the performance instrumentation option, memorizes the multiple adjustments needed when turning at the headlands and allows the operator to recall them with the push of a single button.

For a smooth ride and better traction on the roughest ground, TG Series II tractors can be equipped with an optional TerraGlide front axle. An electro-hydraulic beam axle design keeps the front tires on the ground by keeping them perpendicular to the terrain while providing up to 4.4 inches of travel. This constant ground contact pressure provides consistent power to the ground, improving stability, traction and steering control, as well as reducing the vibration that reaches the cab.

The optional IntelliSteer auto-steering system uses GPS technology to guide TG Series II tractors to plant, spray or till using perfect row positioning every time. Four levels of accuracy are available, from ± 10 inch to up to ± one inch accuracy. IntelliSteer is a factory installed option for TG Series II tractors. A colour IntelliView II display monitor is mounted on the right-hand armrest of all models equipped with IntelliSteer so the operator has easy fingertip control of calibrations, data storage and operational functions.
