New Holland says it has had a positive response to the launch of its T3.75F compact speciality tractor at last month's Fruit Focus show.

Jeremy Cloude, general sales manager of Haynes Agricultural, a New Holland dealership covering Kent and East Sussex, said: "People were impressed with the T3.75F's advances. They liked the overall package but particularly its strength and rigidity. We had quite a few sales leads which we're following up."

The compact and narrow tractor boasts a short 1.86m wheelbase and turning radius of 3.4m.

Its technical attributes include best-in-class hydraulics, a tier-3 turbocharged 2.9-litre three-cylinder engine, Lift-O-Matic raising and lowering, a telescopic steering column and a fully suspended platform to reduce noise and vibration to the operator.
