The T7.315 delivers the power to perform row crop work, baling hay, mowing, hauling manure and other chores, and the comfort and efficiency operators are looking for. It also features the revolutionary IntelliCruise™ tractor-baler automation that enables New Holland’s BigBaler to control the tractor’s speed to maximize productivity and bale consistency, making it the ultimate large square baling tractor.
