CNH Industrial (CNHI) has completed its purchase of ATI Inc. an Indiana-based US manufacturer of rubber track systems for high-power tractors and combines.
This provides New Holland customers with access to factory-fit industry leading track technology.
It extends the available of the range and enabling New Holland to tailor their choice based on their specific floatation, suspension and traction requirements.
Reducing compaction and getting more harvest time for equipment is the aim of every current grower.
As part of that strategy, more growers see value in the use of tracks for specific machines and CNHI will capitalise on that increasing trend.
Through CNH Industrial’s long standing commercial supply agreement with ATI Track Systems, that dates back to 2012, tracks are currently fitted to the New Holland T9 articulated tractor range.
This extends the current range and enabling growers to tailor their choice based on specific flotation, suspension and traction requirements.
ATI offers PowerFlex Trax with TerraForm technology with a suspension that enables higher transport speeds up to 40kph over non-suspension fitments.
In the paddock, PowerFlex Trax with TerraForm technology deliver a smooth ride over rough terrain, for improved operator comfort, while also providing better header ground following performance.
The ATI combine track system offers improved flotation to reduce compaction and provides harvest flexibility especially in wet conditions, according to CNH Industrial.
Marc Smith, Product Segment Manager – Broadacre, Australia and New Zealand had this to say, “This is exciting news for New Holland in Australia. We released the SmartTrax II option for T9 4-wheel drive tractors in 2018.
“The performance and the acceptance of this track system has been very encouraging and we look forward to the benefits and future developments that will come from bringing ATI inhouse,” Marc concluded.
