New Holland Construction Launches Three New Compact Track Loaders

July 2011, Vol. 66 No. 7

New Holland Construction has introduced three compact track loaders in the new 200 Series.

The new machines feature best-in-class forward dump height and reach – boosting operator profits and productivity.

The New Holland C232 and C238 compact track loaders feature the patented vertical lift Super Boom design, for enhanced forward dump height and reach.

The new self-leveling bucket feature on each model also allows attachments to maintain the preset location throughout the lift cycle.

For long load and carry operations, the optional Glide Ride feature on these compact track loaders ensures a smooth ride over the roughest job site.

The C232 and C238 are rated at 76 and 84 horsepower. The C232 has a rated operating capacity of 3,200 pounds and a bucket breakout force of 8,585 pounds. The C238 has a rated operating capacity of 3,800 pounds and a bucket breakout force of 8,585 pounds. The overall width is just 79 inches on the C232 and C238 models equipped with the 18-inch tracks, to make it easier to transport these machines on a standard trailer.

New Holland also introduced the C227 model, a radial lift machine, rated at 70 horsepower, with a rated operating capacity of 2,700 pounds and a bucket breakout force of 7,145 pounds.

The new 200 Series compact track loaders feature superior flotation, traction and stability. “Operators are productive in sloppy, sandy or muddy conditions,” Dave December, NH marketing manager said. “Plus, the low ground pressure provides maximum flotation and minimum soil disturbance, making New Holland compact track loaders ideal for landscapers.”

The dump angle on the new 200 Series compact track loaders has been increased to a best-in-class 53 degrees. This lets operators empty the bucket faster, resulting in faster cycle times and increased productivity.

“A comfortable operator is a productive operator,” December said. “The New Holland 200 Series cab, with dozens of upgrades from our L Series, provides a superior working environment. It is one of the widest, most comfortable cabs in the industry, providing more head and foot room, and offering twice the visibility in critical zones.”

The 200 Series compact track loaders also feature large, 20- to 25.5-gallon fuel tanks, allowing operators to work as long as 10 hours before refueling.
