The New Holland TD95 and TT75 tractors have become favourites with Burmese farmers across the country during many years of hard service, proving to be robust and dependable with low costs of ownership. The high-performance TD95 is supremely capable in even the toughest conditions while the general-purpose TT75 is capable of meeting a wide range of demands and provides great value. Both these tractors are ideal for farming in Myanmar, being well suited to everything from hot, dry and humid conditions to wet paddy fields.
Mr. Daw Shwe Kyi, Ko Thein Naing owns both these New Holland tractors, using a 98 hp TD95 and a 75 hp TT75 (4WD) to farm 70 acres of paddy and a sesame plantation. His farm is located in Ownkhon village and serves the surrounding areas of Myit Thar and Na Htoe Gyi, in Mandalay Region, where agriculture is the primary source of employment and makes a considerable contribution to the national economy.
Mr. Daw Shwe Kyi, Ko Thein Naing bought his first New Holland tractor unit, the TD95, in 2015 and was so satisfied with its performance that he decided to buy a second unit to boost his plantation’s output. He said: “I am very happy with my New Holland tractors because they are good at everything. The oldest tractor has been working for 4,000 hours now without any need for major repairs. That is one reason I really like New Holland. I also appreciate the tractors’ fuel efficiency and operator comfort, and the way they really help make my job quicker and more productive.”
New Holland works closely with its authorised distributor in Myanmar, Yangon-based CPCL, which has 16 branches throughout the country to provide farmers with world-class products and excellent after-sales support. Mr. Daw Shwe Kyi, Ko Thein Naing said, “CPCL’s customer service is very good and I feel they are always there to provide help whenever it is needed.”
High-performance TD95 supremely capable in the toughest conditions
New Holland’s TD95 tractor has a 3.9-litre water-cooled four-cylinder diesel engine with turbocharging. Producing 98 hp and 370 Nm of torque, this gives the TD95 a superb power-to-weight ratio and a significant torque advantage over competitors. By having mechanically-engaged four-wheel-drive with a limited slip differential, the TD95 combines high maneuverability with maximum traction in difficult conditions. This tractor is particularly suited to working in extreme conditions and at altitude. It can run on B20 (20 percent) biodiesel without modification.
The TD95 is notable, too, for its low fuel consumption, long-life components, and long service intervals. Farmers also like this tractor’s New Holland Lift-O-Matic™ system, which makes it easy to raise an implement and to lower it to the same pre-set position.
General-purpose TT75 provides great value
New Holland’s TT Series general-purpose tractors - available in 55 hp and 75 hp variants - are a popular choice because they provide a superb combination of power and economy. Both variants have proven their reliability over many years and are easy and economical to maintain. The TT75 is equally well suited to hot and dry conditions and to the wetness of rice paddy fields (with water-proofed driveline), thanks also to its specialised tyres for rice that make the job easier.
The TT75 has a 3.9-litre four-cylinder naturally aspirated diesel engine from FPT Industrial which produces 75 hp and 260 Nm of torque at 1375 rpm. This water-cooled engine features cross-flow cylinder heads and fuel injection for better performance and fuel economy. Transmission 8x2 and hydraulic lift up to 2000 kg handle the toughest tasks with ease.
