New Holland Presented Methane Powered Concept Tractor
Pushing the boundaries of innovation to pioneer alternative fuels solutions
Methane powered Concept Tractor: the performance and durability of its diesel equivalent with up to 30% running cost savings
The vital link in the Energy Independent Farm™’s virtuous cycle
The new concept reimagines tractor design
New Holland Agriculture presented at the Farm Progress Show the latest development in its vision for the sustainable future of farming: a methane powered concept tractor that reimagines the design of this machine and reveals a connected future.
The brand imagines the farm of the future as being completely energy independent: a farm that produces not only food, but also the biomass it needs to generate the energy it uses to run its operations and power its tractors and other machinery. Such a self-sufficient future is achievable today, with New Holland’s advanced technology and vision.
Carlo Lambro, New Holland Agriculture Brand President, said, “The new methane powered concept tractor is the latest development in New Holland’s pursuit of sustainable and efficient technology through innovation. Its groundbreaking engine delivers the same performance and has the same durability as its standard equivalent, but with much lower running costs. It combines alternative fuels and advanced agricultural technology to create a vital link that closes the loop in the Energy Independent Farm™’s virtuous cycle by running on the energy produced from the land and waste products.”
