New Holland’s Boomer compact tractors series has been awarded the title of “Machine of the Year 2015” in the Compact and Specialized category at the SIMA 2015 show in Paris. The new Tier 4B-compliant Boomer 54D model runs a Common Rail FPT Industrial engine and features a SuperSuite cab and EasyDrive continuously variable transmission.
The machine was rewarded for its technical innovation and the benefits it brings to customers, with selection criteria focusing on innovative features, performance, productivity, cost of operation, ease of use and operator comfort.
The Boomer 54D is powered by a new 2.2 liter, 3 cylinder turbocharged Common Rail engine to optimize performance and fuel consumption with New Holland’s unique Particulate Matter Catalyst (PM-Catalyst) technology for Tier 4B compliance. This solution is maintenance-free, does not require DEF fluid or any other operator input. The engine produces 53 hp and maximum torque of 133 ft./lbs.

The Boomer 54D features New Holland’s EasyDrive continuously variable transmission (CVT). It is the only tractor in this segment with this type of transmission, which brings big-tractor ease of operation to the compact Boomer range.
The CVT enables infinite speed adjustments up to 18.6 mph. Braking is smooth and steady, and automotive-style cruise control enables operators to maintain, fine tune or resume working speeds. In addition, an advanced reactivity setting means they can adjust acceleration and deceleration to suit their individual driving style or application. The EasyDrive transmission is easy to operate with the left-hand dedicated reverse/forward shuttle and drive-like-a-car features such as the single “Go” pedal.
The SuperSuite cab offers a large interior space for comfortable operation, while the wide entry threshold provides easy access. The low profile enables the Boomer 54D to drive under an 8-foot opening with ease. The high-visibility panel located in the roof allows the operator to see the loader through its full range of motion. The hood design makes it easy to see front-mounted attachments and the unobstructed rear view to the drawbar makes attaching rear implements easier.
Like all Boomer models, the Boomer 54D has electro hydraulically engaged rear and optional mid PTOs. A full range of front- and rear-mounted implements and mid-mount mowers are available.
