New Holland unveils boomer
New Holland’s Boomer 1000 series reinforces the saying that ‘big things come in small packages’. Although compact in size, the Boomer 1000 is larger than a sub-compact tractor, with a longer wheelbase, taller profile, and higher-performance specifications allowing it to do a whole lot more than just mow.
With three models, 20, 25 and 30hp, the Boomer 1000 series handle tasks that ordinary lawn and garden tractors can't, delivering reliable performance, solid construction, safe and easy operation all at an economical price.
Andrew Barrie, New Holland's Product Manager for Compact Tractors, says "the Boomer 1000 series are built tough, and will give the owner years of dependable, trouble-free performance.
"The reliable three-cylinder diesel engine provides plenty of power for all kinds of jobs, with great fuel economy. The large 27-litre fuel tank allows for longer operating time and less idle time, maximising productivity."
The hydrostatic transmission has two ranges: throttle up to deliver the desired mid or rear PTO speed and use the travel pedals to determine your working speed. The two-pedal design minimises pedal effort and provides ease of use for every operator.
"Four-wheel drive is standard on all models, and on the Boomer 1025 and 1030 the front axle is fitted with Sensitrak 4WD engagement system, for turf-friendly traction control," Barrie says.
"The Sensitrak system provides 'set it and forget it' convenience and fuel efficiency. It engages and disengages the 4WD automatically, only when needed, to reduce scuffing the turf, save wear and tear on the tires and increase the life of driveline components."
In mud, rough or slippery conditions, simply step on the differential lock foot pedal and both rear wheels lock together for added traction.
Despite the compact dimensions, these tractors have great ergonomics, and all functions fall close to hand.
The inclined seat design perfectly positions the operator in relationship to the controls and to provide better visibility. Simple-to-operate colour coded controls are logically positioned for ease of use.
The Boomer 1000 series come standard with two PTOs to power front- and rear-mounted implements.
The mid PTO (2,200rpm) allows fitment of the optional 60-inch mid-mount mower deck. The rear PTO (540rpm) and the category-one three-point hitch with lift capacity up to 815kg permit operation of rotary tillers, mowers, blades, brooms and other attachments.
Further enhancing this range is the optional New Holland ApC 20 front-end loader. Designed and engineered for Australian conditions, it offers excellent visibility, durable performance and solid construction.
Backed by a two-year warranty, it allows you to handle a variety of tasks without compromising on productivity or safety.
"The New Holland mechanical level lift system is the best form of operator protection against rollback and is designed to meet the tough standards of the Tractor and Machinery Association of Australia's Code of Practice for supply and manufacture of front-end loaders, which is now being embraced by WorkCover authorities across Australia," Barrie says.
The cam lock attachment system allows quick and easy removal and fitment of the loader without the need for tools, and a wide range of optional attachments, such as 4-in-1 buckets, hay forks and round bale spikes further increasing the versatility of the Boomer 1000 series. Integrated park stands and colour-coded hydraulic couplers further simplify hook up.
Like all Boomer tractors, the Boomer 1000 series are easy to maintain. The hood lifts with a gas strut, but there's no need to raise it or remove a front-end loader to add fuel or check the engine oil. All routine service points are located on the right side of the engine. The battery is located out front, and easy to access. No tools are required for routine maintenance.
"The New Holland Boomer 1000 series is the ideal tractor, for small acreages, nurseries, landscape suppliers, and any application where compact size, simplicity of operation, and power to weight is demanded. Add to that the modern styling and these tractors deliver full marks in all categories," Barrie says.
Right now New Holland is offering huge customer rebate of $2,500, making the Boomer 1000 series the tractor of choice!
