                      Werner Betschart and Ant Metcalfe, owners of M&B
                      Contracting Ltd have recently taken delivery of a
                      new New Holland T7.270 AC TG 50K FL / PTO
                      ‘Blue Power’ tractor. This tractor is a limited edition
                      model that was released globally. It has a maximum
                      HP of 270. Is painted Maseratti Blue and has a
                      stainless exhaust pipe. It is the first tractor in the M&B
                      Contracting fleet that has the Tier 4 engine with SCR.
                      (Selective Catalytic Reduction). This uses ‘Go Clear’
                      injected into the exhaust which changes the gases
                      from nitrous oxide (NOx) to harmless water and
                      nitrogen emissions.
                      This creates a fuel saving of 8% whilst producing more
                      The engine also runs cooler than a Tier 3 engine
                      which saves maintenance costs and allows longer
                      service intervals.
                      NH Tier 4 engines produce 100 times less particle
                      matter compared with a Tier 1 engine produced in
                      The engine is manufactured by FPT (Fiat Powertrain
                      Technologies) which invented common rail technology
                      used today.
                      FPT has produced 150,000 SCR engines during the
                      last 5 years.
                      M&B Contracting Ltd are New Holland devotees.
                      As always they are very happy with the comfort and
                      power of their New Holland tractor which is currently
