New Holland's new TJ Series II 4WD includes six models, ranging from 280 to 530 horsepower. They offer increased efficiency with new, higher levels of power, comfort and control.

With 530 horsepower available on the largest TJ530 model, TJ Series II tractors achieve power growth of up to 54 horsepower and a 40 percent torque rise to pull bigger, heavier equipment, even in tough conditions. Fuel efficient, six cylinder EPA Tier 3 compliant 'green' engines offer exceptional power and torque rise as well as air emissions compliance.

In addition to higher horsepower engines, increased oil pump and engine cooling capacities provide greater engine reliability and durability. Oil pump capacity is now up to 25 percent greater than on previous TJ models, providing more engine lubrication for longer life. Engine cooling capacity has also been increased and a special water filtration system filters out contaminants and adds a conditioner to maximize engine reliability.


The new TJ Series II tractors feature capacity matched frames based on horsepower. A longer wheelbase on all frames and unique 'centre pull' design adds to the stability and enables the TJ Series II to deliver at the drawbar. The row crop chassis — TJ280 and TJ330 — makes the TJ Series II the only row crop 4WD tractor with true 30 inch row capability. The larger chassis — TJ380 and TJ430 — and high capacity chassis — TJ480 and TJ530 — versions are designed for heavy-duty agricultural and commercial uses.

Power is matched by transmissions that provide a choice of work speeds and smooth shifting performance. A 16×2 full powershift or 24×6 Hi-Low synchroshift transmission — TJ280, TJ330, TJ380 and TJ430 only — are available. The clutch free, push button, 16 speed powershift transmission now features wider gears and extra clutch plates for more torque carrying capacity. The operator can conveniently start travel in any of the first eight gears.

Also new on powershift transmissions is the convenience of AutoShift, which minimizes manual shifting during both field and road operations. In field operation, AutoShift automatically down shifts to maintain engine revolutions per minute and torque as load increases, then up shifts as load decreases. In road operation, AutoShift automatically selects the proper gears based on throttle input and road speed. Fuel efficient AutoShift is standard on all powershift models.

The Custom Headland Management system, standard on powershift models with performance instrumentation, can be easily programmed to make complex headland turns a snap. One switch controls as many as 30 functions such as remotes, throttles, gear shifts and three-point hitch to save valuable time at every turn. The flexible 24×6 Hi-Low synchroshift transmission is fully synchronized to allow easy shifting on the go with a rolling load. Nine speeds are available in the four to 8.5 mile per hour working range.

For even greater convenience and control, TJ Series II tractors are available with the factory installed IntelliSteer auto-steering system. IntelliSteer provides state-of-the-art automated steering guidance and GPS satellite technology to reduce inputs and enhance operator comfort and productivity for maximum field performance. The system automatically guides the tractor in straight lines with an accuracy of ± one inch (2.5cm) at speeds up to 29km/hr (18mph).

New Holland's exclusive MegaFlow hydraulic option provides huge flow capacity and flexibility to power numerous functions at the same time without hindering performance. MegaFlow pumps up to 94 gallons per minute through two separate hydraulic pumps to meet the demand of power hungry implements such as beet lifters, air-seeders and laser land levelling equipment. By utilizing two separate pumps, MegaFlow delivers dedicated hydraulic flow to the implement even while operating multiple hydraulic functions. Four remotes are standard, with an option of up to nine remotes.
