No matter what your line of work (landscaping, farming or construction) you'll complete your jobs more effectively with New Holland 200 Series skid steers and compact track loaders. The New Holland product development team worked with more than 1,000 valued New Holland and competitive skid steer customers for three years to develop final concepts for the 200 Series. work

The product development team then used virtual reality technology and New Holland’s Arizona proving grounds to test these concepts with prototype units and customer groups of landscapers, farmers, and general contractors.
New Holland listened and designed a loader that met the challenges, answered the requests and fulfilled every wish list. It’s the skid steer loader you would want on the job – one that’s durable, reliable and productive. New Holland manufactures the 200 Series skid steers and compact track loaders.

New Holland introduced the long wheelbase oncept to skid steers loaders, and now goes longer with the 200 Series. When combined with a low centrte of gravity and the correct front-to-rear weight distribution, the result is a smooth and stable ride.

The patented New Holland Super Boom® vertical lift linkage offers more height and reach which allows operators to load material into the center of the of high-sided truck boxes or hoppers.

Operators who are comfortable can work longer hours with less fatigue. The widest skid steer cab in the industry provides more head room and shoulder room for any size operator. The entry foot well is flat for easy entry and exit. The optional heated, cloth upholstered, air-ride seat gives maximum support and eliminates fatigue. Ergonomically designed joysticks put all controls right at your fingertips. The air vents are strategically located to cover operator extremities as well as defrost the door and windows. There’s more than twice the visibility as before in the critical zones based on visibility testing.

By simply opening the engine compartment rear door, you can easily identify service points like the engine oil fill and dipstick, the air filter, oil cooler, radiator, coolant over flow, fuel filter, and oil filter. Battery maintenance is simple, too. And, if you need more service access, the flip-top cab opens the machine up wide.
