New Holland started with one corn mill in the state of Pennsylvania, first built in 1895. The company then expanded into farm implements and later found success with automatic hay balers. New Holland was acquired by Ford Tractor Operations in 1985, and the Ford New Holland name began to appear on tractors. In 1990 Ford sold a majority interest in its farm machinery operations to a foreign company called FIAT, with the agreement that the Ford name be dropped in ten years.
Tractors began to be released under two names: New Holland in traditional Ford tractor markets, and FIAT in their traditional markets. In 1999, Case IH and FIAT New Holland merged to form CNH Global (Case New Holland) which continues to built tractors under the New Holland brand.
New Holland produces both Agricultural farm equipment, and Heavy construction equipment like backhoe, skid steer loader, excavator, mini excavator, and wheel loader. The models included in this Illustrated Master Parts List Manual are the 1215 Compact Tractor.
