New Holland Tractor T4.90
The New Holland T4 series is a four-tractor lineup – T4.90, T4.100, T4.110 and T4.120 – that fits in just below the slightly larger and more expensive T5 series. Though the T4 lineup is slightly smaller, it is all utility with gross horsepower ratings ranging from 86 to 117 and power take-off (PTO) ratings from 73 to 99.
Powering the New Holland TT4 Tractors used in Uganda
Powering T4 tractors are F5G four-cylinder 3.4L engines from Fiat Powertrain Technologies (FPT). These engines are EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4 or Tier 4B) compliant using external selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and light cooled exhaust gas recirculation (CEGR). This means additions of diesel exhaust fluid (DEF or AdBlue) are necessary, but it also means the emissions systems operate after combustion so the F5G engines can be tuned for optimum power. For the T4.90, the gross horsepower is 86 and the PTO horsepower is 73.

T4 tractor purchasers have five transmissions to choose from with base configuration tractors getting a 12 x 12 mechanical shuttle transmission. A good percentage of T4 tractors are expected to be purchased along with loaders, so New Holland offers several packages that include 12 x 12 power shuttle transmissions. For applications that require slower, accurate speeds for applications such as seeding and spraying, a 20 x 20 power shuttle with creeper is available. Next step up are Dual Command transmissions, the first being a 24 x 24 which has high-low functionality and can be shifted between those ranges without the need to depress the clutch pedal and the second being a 40 x 40 Dual Command transmission with creeper.

Hydraulics run through a twin pump system flowing 16.9 gpm to implement demand and 9.7 gpm to service needs (26.6 gpm total).

No problem, New Holland offers an optional ram that increases lift capacity to 7351 lbs. Lower link ends flex for ease of attachment and the outboard stabilizers telescope for quick cinching up of slack. Two rear remotes are standard with up to three supported. Tractors outfitted with the base 12 x 12 transmission come with a 540 rpm rear PTO with a 540/540E or 540/1000 rpm option. Dual Command transmissions can come with 540/540E or 540/1000 rpm PTOs.
