MOSCOW, September 17, 2013 —
New Holland’s new generation of LM Series telehandlers has been completely redesigned to deliver improved performance together with premium operator comfort.
“Telehandler demands for livestock and hay producers vary,” says Michael Cornman, Dairy and Livestock marketing segment leader. “Some producers require a telehandler with the reach to pick up, transport and stack large bales, while others need a compact machine for daily use for livestock duties. With New Holland’s new LM Series, there are five telehandler models to suit producers’ specific needs.”
Two Large-Frame Standard Configuration Models
New Holland’s two LM Series large-frame standard-configuration models — the LM6.32 and LM9.35 — are designed for applications including material handling, yard work and stacking large bales. These telehandlers are the ideal choice for broad-acre, mixed farm and contract applications.
The LM6.32 and LM9.35 have maximum capacities of 7,054 and 7,716 pounds and maximum lift heights of 20.6 and 29.8 feet, respectively.
Powered by Tier 4A 4.5-liter NEF engines, with a maximum power output of 121 horsepower, these telehandlers feature a full powershift 4F/3R (four-forward and three-reverse speed) transmission with clutch-free changes between each gear. Gear selection is on the joystick, while a column-mounted power shuttle lever allows convenient direction changes. A 31.7-gpm hydraulic gear pump and three-mode steering system add to the high level of performance offered. Transport speed is 25 mph.
LM7.42 Elite Large-Frame Model Offers Auto Features
The LM7.42 Elite large-frame model has a maximum capacity of 9,259 pounds and maximum lift height of 22.9 feet.
The LM7.42 Elite large frame model features a powershift 6F/3R transmission with the ability to select auto mode. Effective in speeds 4, 5 and 6, auto mode selects the most appropriate gear in relation to engine and forward speed and is well-suited for transport duties. Gear and direction changes are made using the buttons on the armrest-mounted joystick.
Three Steering Modes
Four-wheel steering mode provides the large-frame LM telehandlers with a turning radius of just 12.8 feet, tight enough to maneuver around many obstacles. Crabsteer mode creates the ability to move a load into or out of an area in a diagonal direction. Four-wheel steering is great for general use and transport applications, allowing the telehandler to be operated just like a standard tractor. The LM7.42 Elite also features auto wheel alignment when switching between, all-wheel, crab and front steering.
Two Compact Models: Small in Size, Big on Performance
Offering tremendous lift height and lift capacity combined with a tight turning radius, the 75 horsepower LM5.25 and 101 horsepower LM6.28 telehandlers are more versatile than a tractor with a loader and more efficient than a larger skid steer, so producers don’t have to compromise on productivity. Especially suited for mixed farming, these compact telehandlers can do more work in more places — and do it faster.
The LM5.25 and LM6.28 measure just 70.8 and 79.2 inches wide respectively. With a turn radius as small as 11.2 feet, these compact handlers can operate in tight spaces. Heights of just 78 and 79.2 inches enable either machine to work in low buildings such as poultry houses. But their compact dimensions don’t mean limited capacity. The LM5.25 and LM6.28 have maximum capacities of 5,512 and 6,172 pounds, and maximum lift heights of 18.9 and 20.8 feet respectively.
Powered by a 203 cubic inches 3.3L Tier 4 Final engine, the LM5.25 features a single-speed hydrostatic transmission, while the LM6.28 is powered by a 268 cubic inches 4.4L Tier 4A engine with a dual-range transmission. Both models have an inching pedal. Use the single drive pedal to speed or slow the machine, with less need to operate the brakes. The inching pedal helps increase precision and is ideal for applications such as stacking bales and handling grain.
Exceptional Comfort: Best-in-Class Visibility, Ergonomic Controls and Operator Comfort
The all-new 360 Vision Cab offers class-leading space and comfort with excellent all-around visibility and an unparalleled view of the front of the forks when fully lowered. Not only does the extra visibility boost loader work productivity, but it also speeds up attachment changeovers.
Easy Maintenance: Unique Under-Hood Configuration for Swift Daily Maintenance
The LM Series features a unique under-hood configuration that makes carrying out daily maintenance even simpler and tool free. The hood opens wide and all service points can be reached from ground level.
“This new generation of telehandlers demonstrates New Holland’s dedication to providing smart, productive solutions to our customers,” says Cornman.
