Boomer™ 54D by New Holland named "Machine of the Year"
New Holland’s Boomer™ Tier4B compliant Boomer™ 54D was awarded the title of “Machine of the Year 2015” Award in the Compact and Specialized category at the SIMA 2015 show in Paris. Luca Mainardi, Head of Tractor and Precision Land Management Product Management, declared, “This award recognizes the considerable benefits that 54D Boomer™ tractor brings to our customers. It is the ultimate power tool, the perfect combination of superior operator comfort and optimal performance. This is achieved with the EasyDrive continuously variable transmission, the Tier 4B compliant engine and a host of features that enable the operator to get the job done with great efficiency and comfort.” The Boomer 54D™ mounts a new 2.2 liter, 3 cylinder turbo charged Common Rail engine equipped with New Holland’s unique Particulate Matter Catalyst (PM-Catalyst) technology for Tier 4B compliance. This engine, developed by FPT Industrial, produces 53 hp and maximum torque of 180 Nm. The Boomer™ 54D is the only tractor in this segment which features the EasyDrive™ continuously variable transmission (CVT) to bring big-tractor ease of operation to the compact Boomer™ range. The CVT enables infinite speed adjustments up to 33 kph to allow the operator to precisely adjust speed to the work while reducing in-cab noise and enhancing operator comfort. The SuperSuite cab offers the largest interior space in the industry for comfortable operation, while the wide entry threshold provides easy access. The low profile enables the Boomer™ 54D to drive under a 2.4 meter opening with ease. Visibility is excellent both forward and to the rear. The hood design makes it easy to see front-mounted attachments and the unobstructed rear view to the drawbar, to make mounting rear implements easier than ever. Available for this new New Holland arrival is a complete range of front and rear mounted implements and mid mount mowers to complete jobs in record time. All these features make the Boomer™ 54D the ideal compact tractor for small landholders, municipal services, and grounds keeping businesses as well as, not to leave out, sports facilities.
