Is the front mouse controller not the lift?
View attachment 96843
I assume the one just beside the main lever is the lift but I also guess that the buttons just to the right of the forward/neutral/reverse are lift and lower buttons with the further 4 being spools? What I’m not sure is the rabbit/hare along side a roller? Is it that you can adjust the speed finely with the roller and set 2/3 speeds and jump between them with the rabbit/hare? There’s also a cruise control button under them.

Yes that’s the lift,with can-bus control it’s easy to move the function to another place.
It's a far cry from the 8x2 constant mesh between your legs!

I doubt I'd even get it started....
35 years since I mowed the whole farm for silage with a Ford 5000 and a km22 mower,I’ve earned the comfort of a decent modern cab,that said I could make that 5000 sing,I could drive it in my sleep.

Was in Basildon during the week for a drive.

a lot of very nice improvements, a lot of customer feedback taken in on these.

few things i noted, better design of a lot of cab features etc, better panel fit and finish, car like integration with the armrest,
All very focused on what an operator wants,
Doesn’t feel anything like the outgoing T7 HD

some photos attached, i have videos but not sure they are worth uploading

Best improvement is the cooler box but doesn't mean much for the average Joe's with the swb t7. FFS case have em in the smaller case's

Case doesn’t have a cooler box, the dealers sell it as that, but it doesn’t have a lid on it for a reason.

there is a kit available from NH dealers to mount a 12v coolbox in the right hand foot well beyond the foot throttle if you really want one.

If I remember correctly back in the early 2000's I called into a NH dealership in Collon, co.Louth.
Who would that have been? I remember Armstrongs where in the Naul at the time.

North East Farm Machinery, Armstrongs were involved in it I think with Richard Davis who was into Renaults.

The white rear wings is a bit too much IMO, but the others do look well, possibly white bonnet grills tho would tie it back. The grills on the one here have often looked white after rolling barley and I think it kind of suits it

I think the white wings are desperate looking. Also a couple of posts up has what looks like whore grills amd again don’t like the look of them… but that’s just me. !

I’ll be shot for posting this in here but for comparative purposes I think the white is too severe on the wings of the new Holland
