New Holland hopes to raise harvesting stakes with new combine range
The Company says the brand new Harvest Suite Ultra cab is larger and offers more glass area than previous models. The six model range is topped by the CR10.90, the first combine to enter the class 10 segment in Europe and the most powerful CR ever, that delivers the highest capacity in the industry and truly outstanding performance.
“The new CR range is the culmination of 40 years of Twin Rotor technology,” stated Hedley Cooper, Head of Combine Harvester Product Management. “It offers the best of New Holland’s harvesting technologies: Twin Pitch Rotors, Dynamic Feed Roll, SmartTrax rubber tracks, Terraglide suspension, ECOBlue SCR and Hi-eSCR engine technologies – all working together to deliver the very best performance. All this is coupled with the Harvest Suite Ultra cab that redefines harvesting comfort. And with the capacity and performance of the CR10.90, you enter an entirely new harvesting dimension. You couldn’t ask for more.”
Proven technologies deliver more capacity than ever
New Holland continues to improve and refine its proven Twin Rotor technology, which is designed for high capacity harvesting and delivers high outputs combined with grain quality without equal.
It says the Dynamic Feed Roll on-the-go mechanical stone protection system further raises the CR’s massive capacity by feeding the rotors faster and more smoothly while removing stones with no stopping or hesitation. The new serrated blades on the roll are gentle on the crop, resulting in high-quality straw. This is achieved with no additional power consumption, resulting in higher capacity as well as better grain and straw quality than with the equivalent model of the same horsepower in the previous range.
New Holland claim CR combines work seamlessly in variable crop conditions with the Twin-Pitch rotors, which can raise productivity by up to 10% in damp conditions. Switching between small grain and corn configurations to rice is easy. The redesigned adjustable rotor vanes require less power in high volume crops and consistently deliver high quality straw.
It says the SmartTrax rubber tracks with Terraglide suspension system, standard on the flagship CR10.90 and available on the other models as an option, ensure excellent traction and low soil compaction while providing a silky smooth ride.
