New Holland returns to Cereals in 2018 and will be showcasing some of its latest machines.
Visitors to stand 887 will see the CR9.80 Revelation 24″ SmarTrax with Flex Technology, part of the CR Revelation range – its latest rotary combine models launched in 2017 – and the flagship FR920 forage harvester. The manufacturer’s new T6 Direct CommandTM and high performance T7 Heavy Duty tractors will also be on display.
New Holland has also provided the UK’s leading arable event with two T6 tractors to pull the visitor ride-on trailer shuttle to and from the car park on both days in style.
The latest CR models have been designed with increased capacity in mind. Both narrow and wide width models feature more space in the rotor tube for increased capacity at a lower power requirement. The new styling also ensures improved visibility and serviceability.
Launched at harvest 2017, the narrow frame CR7.90 and CR8.80 features a revised rotor cage, which increases the space available for threshing while the latest Twin Pitch Rotors and a revised Dynamic Feed Roll maintain crop throughput in even the most difficult harvesting conditions.
The wide frame models now feature Twin Pitch Plus as standard, the rotor configuration that was developed especially for the world-beating CR10.90.
Residue management is likely to be one of the biggest challenges facing farmers over the next ten years so, the CR8.90, CR9.80, CR9.90 and range topping CR10.90 all benefit from a revised residue management system including, an award-winning chaff distribution system, a revised straw chopper rotor for finer chopping and, revisions to the Opti-SpreadTM system to ensure even spreading of chopped material out to 14.5 metres.
One of the stars on the New Holland stand at Cereals will be the new flagship FR920, featuring the all-new FPT Industrial V20 engine developed specifically for forage harvesting applications. It delivers a massive 670 kW (911 hp) maximum power at 1600 to 1800 rpm, 4,095 Nm maximum torque and a productivity-boosting 44% torque rise at 2100-1600 rpm. The power curve is mapped to match the precise requirements of foraging applications ensuring the best transient response, reacting fast to changing load. The V20 engine delivers the most fuel-efficient performance in the 1600 to 1900 rpm working range. This, together with the low maintenance costs results in the machine’s excellent Total Cost of Operation.
New Holland will show its new T6 Dynamic CommandTM multi-purpose tractor range with new, 8 step semi-powershift transmission. Offering between 145 and 175 max hp with engine power management, the lowest fuel consumption levels of a 4-cylinder agricultural tractor, and a host of productivity-boosting features, the T6 Dynamic Command models sets a new benchmark in efficiency. The T6 24×24 Dynamic Command adds further choice to the popular Basildon-Built T6 range, complementing the T6 Electro CommandTM and Auto CommandTM models.
The T6 Dynamic CommandTM range is now available via New Holland dealers with demonstration units becoming available from May 2018.
Additional tractors at the show include the T7 Heavy Duty tractor. The most powerful tractors ever built in Basildon, the two-model T7 Heavy Duty range offers an excellent power to weight ratio, making it ideal for tillage and top work, especially at speed. Continuously variable transmission provided by New Holland’s Auto Command™. Four-speed rear PTO and a two-speed front PTO offer significant fuel savings with engine rpm adjusted via the in-cab speed shift to take account of changing conditions and implement demands, to maximise engine efficiency.
