Even more performance for the New Holland CR combine harvester

Friday, October 18th, 2013

At the Agritechnica 2013 trade fair, New Holland will unveil the Dynamic Feed Roll™ technology as an option for the powerful twin-rotor combine harvesters, the CR 8000 and CR 9000.

The feed roll with its new dynamic stone protection system is installed tangentially across the two longitudinal rotors in the combine harvester.

The Dynamic Feed Roll delivers the harvested grain uniformly to the twin rotors as well as providing an effective method for stone protection on the move, by way of a stone catcher trough beneath the feed rotor.

Many years of trials at the R&D Centre in Zedelgem have demonstrated that this feed roll delivers tangible benefits in terms of grain quality. Furthermore, the tests have shown that the Dynamic Feed Roll requires no additional power requirement because the improved crop delivery to the rotor area actually reduces the need for power.

The advantages for the user are very evident indeed:

• continuous ‘non-stop’ stone protection
• excellent grain quality
• improved crop flow through continuous supply to the rotor
• less strain on the rotor drives

New Holland sets the pace at BBC Harvest

Thursday, September 12th, 2013

Is it feasible that agriculture should step back one hundred years to try and regain a little of the romanticism that seems to have embraced harvest time? As part of the BBC’s Harvest program, a
series of three programmes set to be broadcast in September, an experiment took place on the Essex farm of Guy Smith to establish just what the difference is between a modern combine harvester and a more traditional way of bringing in the harvest.

Using a state-of-the-art New Holland CR8080 SmartTraxTM combine from local dealer Ernest Doe, presenter Philippa Forrester shows viewers how a modern machine brings together all the separate
operations that our ancestors used to undertake to complete harvest and took control to get a feel for the output of a modern harvester. Equipped with New Holland’s GPS guidance system IntellisteerTM, Philippa managed to resist the temptation
to grab the steering wheel and take a straight swath out of the field.

To offer a contrast and a glimpse of a bygone age, volunteers learnt the art of hand cutting wheat with hooks and scythes while a veritable army of local schoolchildren was gathered to relearn the
lost art of hand threshing. Led by co-presenter Gregg Wallace and equipped with pillow cases, bats, sticks and even tennis rackets, the volunteers proceeded to thresh the cut crop and then using sieves and a further measure of manual labour, were introduced
to the art of winnowing – using wind to clean the crop.

Over more than 100 years, the founding companies that have created the modern entity that is New Holland have sought to make life easier and more productive for the farmer. From stationary engines
and threshing machines, through to tractors and grape, cane and combine harvesters, New Holland has consistently been at the forefront of innovation, helping farmers to expand the boundaries of agriculture.

The BBC Harvest Programme is intended to give the wider public an in-depth view of harvest time for UK Agriculture. A series of three programmes covering the harvest of fruit, cereals and vegetables
is scheduled to be broadcast this week (Sep. 11th, 12th, 13th). Following on from the difficult harvesting and sowing conditions of 2012, the series of programmes will show viewers the culmination
of what has proven to be one of the more difficult farming years in recent memory.

Using the CR8080’s GPS system and on-board weighing equipment, Philippa managed to harvest an average of 11kg of wheat a second during her stint behind the wheel.

To find out how the challengers fared with their un-mechanised harvest, tune in to BBC Harvest.

BBC Harvest is on at 8pm on BBC 2 on Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th and at 9pm on Friday 13th. Enjoy the viewing!

New Holland Launch the New FR Range of Forage Harvesters

Friday, September 21st, 2012

The launch of the new FR range of forage harvesters sees New Holland accomplish the complete renewal of its line-up of professional harvesting products. The five model FR range delivers between 450-824hp and offers industry-leading chop quality and consistency, which, when combined with the range’s unsurpassed throughput, provides the most efficient and productive package on the market. Innovative new features such as productivity enhancing ECOBlue™ SCR technology, the ultra-wide IntelliView™ IV colour touchscreen monitor, and a new high performance grass pick-up header have been combined with renowned FR features including the VariFlow™ and HydroLoc™ systems in a strikingly distinctive New Holland styling package, to offer professional contractors and large cooperatives unsurpassed quality and throughput.

“The latest generation of FRs represents the pinnacle of forage harvesting technology, and is the culmination of over 50 years of pioneering forager firsts.” Stated Hedley Cooper, Head of Harvester Product Management. “In 1961, New Holland revolutionised the world of forage harvesting with the Model SP818. Today, over half a century later, yellow blooded engineers are hard at work at our Harvesting Centre of Excellence, in Zedelgem, and the home of the FR, to provide today’s high output contractors and cooperatives with the productivity, efficiency and reliability they require.”

ECOBlue™ SCR technology for enhanced productivity and reduced fuel consumption

New Holland is committed to enhancing environmental sustainability whilst improving farmers’ and contractors’ productivity as well as reducing their operating costs. The Cursor 9 and Cursor 13 engines fitted to the FR450 and FR500 respective, boast ECOBlue™ SCR technology for Tier 4A compliance. The ECOBlue™ SCR system offers significant performance advantages, and the new FR450 and FR500 now develop maximum harvesting power of 450hp and 520hp, which mean operators will have the power on tap to tackle even the most demanding conditions and crops.

Fuel consumption has been optimised courtesy of ECOBlue™ SCR technology. The renowned Power Cruise™ technology enables further fuel savings in the field, and the ultra-low road mode engine speeds, as low as 1400rpm, enable up to an additional 20% reduction in fuel consumption.

New Holland’s ECOBlue™ Selective Catalytic Reduction system used to meet Tier 4A emissions standards was developed in partnership with FPT Industrial, and over 240,000 SCR engines have been produced to date for ultimate reliability in all operating conditions. A fundamental element of ECOBlue™ SCR technology is AdBlue, which is injected in the after-treatment system to neutralise the harmful exhaust emissions produced during combustion. It turns them into water and nitrogen, both of which are naturally present in the environment. The range’s AdBlue system has been designed for minimal operator input, and the 150 litre tank only needs to be filled every two diesel refills. It is located next to the pre-existing diesel tank to ensure hassle-free filling. Operators are kept continually informed of AdBlue levels via the IntelliView™ IV display.

All-new chopper body and powerful blowing performance for efficient crop flow

The FR benefits from an all new chopper body which has significantly enhanced chop quality in terms of uniformity and throughput. Moreover, changing from the grass to the maize setting has been further simplified to reduce downtime during tight foraging windows. The FR features the latest advances in blower design, which have optimised crop transfer from the cutterhead to the processor and trailer, even when working in the lightest grass crops. The paddle type blower has increased the mass of smooth flowing air by a full 40% to transport higher volumes of crop more efficiently and to reduce the risk of crop accumulation in the chopper body area for significantly diminished crop build-up, reducing maintenance demands. Advanced computational fluid dynamic analysis was also conducted to establish the smoothest and best possible path for the crop, and an impressive value of 80% has been achieved for crop flow direction stability. A more stable flow means reduced turbulence and greater unloading efficiency.

Distinctive styling facilitates access and serviceability

The FR range’s distinctively New Holland styling features a slick black spout, reminiscent of the 50th anniversary model. The sculpted steps form a natural arc for easy cab-access, and the operator platform has been widened with sculpted hand rails for safe entry and exit late at night and after long working days. The elegant side panels open wide as a single unit on self-supporting gas struts for easy servicing access.

Daily maintenance has been further simplified courtesy of significant advances in feed roll packaging. The entire area has been sealed thanks to the addition of precision placed plates which form a protective seal around the feed roller to prevent the build-up of debris, which can substantially reduce time-consuming daily cleaning. Furthermore, this system has the additional benefit of improving crop flow and reducing costly side ‘fall out’ losses.

New grass pick-up for higher speed, ultra-reliable, smooth harvesting in all conditions

New Holland knows that the optimum harvesting window for guaranteed nutritious silage is tight; this lead to the development of the high capacity 300FP grass pick-up header. Available in two working widths, the three metre model is perfect for transport-intensive operations, whereas the super-wide 3.8 metre version makes light work of even the widest grass swaths. Ultimate throughput is guaranteed courtesy of the roller wind guard. Designed to ensure smooth crop flow from swath to forager, it prevents crop flow disturbances for uniform feeding. The wind guard can be adjusted from the cab to maintain constant, laminar flow in swaths of changing densities. Retractable fingers smoothly and efficiency transfer the crop to the feed rolls, and optional paddles can be specified when working in the densest and most demanding conditions.

Pick-up speed has been significantly increased thanks to the addition of a supplementary tine bar, bringing the total to five. This enables higher ground speeds, perfect when working in unstable climatic conditions or for contractors looking to increase productivity and profitability. When working in muddy or boggy fields, the pick-up support wheel will prevent costly bulldozing and maintain uniform header height. Reinforced tines complete the high level of reliability that this header offers; when working in even the most uneven fields or in stony conditions, tine breakages have been consigned to the history books.

All headers can be quickly and easily attached courtesy of the ‘quick-attach’ logic, and lateral and vertical header height correction are managed from the comfort of the cab. This ensures that the header follows the contours of even the most uneven ground without bulldozing or lifting.

Designed to enhance biomass productivity

The FR range has been engineered by design to offer productive biomass harvesting. Cutting edge technology is combined with a complete range of customisable options so that the FR can be specified to match diverse biomass harvesting operations. The high inertia biomass drum features 2×20 knives for a fine cut for more efficient digestion and combustion. The Dual Drive function of the HydroLoc™, variable chop length system, enables ‘straight through’ crop-flow by disengaging the threshing mechanism, perfect for miscanthus biomass harvesting. The 130FB coppice header with integrated saw blades, can slice through coppice stems of up to 15cm and produce uniform woodchips. The protruding ‘trunk’ efficiently feeds stems into the feed rolls for effective harvesting.

IntelliFill™ system: let your FR fill the trailer for you

The multi-award winning IntelliFill™ technology enables the operator to accurately fill the trailer with minimal losses, even when visibility is limited. A specialised 3D camera mounted under the spout guides the crop flow into the trailer, ensuring a uniform fill. The spout mounted sensor creates a distance image of the trailer and its surroundings based on near infra-red technology, which means crops can be accurately discharged up to a distance of 20 metres. What’s more, the system needs no manual calibration, and recognises different types of trailer automatically, eliminating complex and time consuming set-up procedures. This system provides notable advancements in terms of operator comfort and can lead to significant increases in productivity: operators can concentrate on harvesting without having to continually check over their shoulder to monitor crop discharge. During long days, and even in the dark, the automatic spout guidance will consistently reduce crop spoilage, increasing the forage harvesters’ overall quality of work.

Accurate yield mapping can enhance yields and improve customer service

Today’s modern agricultural contractors find themselves in an ultra-competitive world, where even the slightest difference in quality or service can tilt the balance when lucrative contracts are up for grabs. New Holland knows this, and has placed a powerful tool in the hands of professional forager contractors: fully integrated yield mapping reporting. Yield mapping information can be downloaded from the FR, analysed using New Holland PLM™ software so that contactors can provide customers with accurate reports on their field performance, enabling them to tailor inputs to enhance future yields. This is the perfect example of New Holland, contractors and customers forming a virtuous cycle to enhance yields and mutual profitability.

Wide range of headers for ultimate crop-to-crop flexibility and productivity

All models in the FR range are fully compatible with a wide range of headers including the Marangon for New Holland direct cut header which is the default choice for super-intensive dairy farms and biomass operations. The six metre header offers a super fine cut with 14 ultra-flat round cutting discs for uninterrupted flow that transmits zero stress and strain to the cutting bed, enhancing machine reliability and reducing costly down time during tight cutting windows. The main frame is composed of one module to which the cutterbar has been fully welded for increased strength and inherent stability. Moreover, when cutting tall, high value whole crop, it can be elevated via hydraulic struts to prevent knocking off valuable seeds.

Furthermore, all New Holland combine maize and grain headers, together with specific Forage Harvester maize headers can be fitted.

Power-saving VariFlow™ system improves blower and in-field performance

The two-position Variflow™ system enables operators to alter the location of the blower based on the crop being harvested. The Blower rotor is precision placed depending on the crop to tailor the blower force required for efficient transfer of material up the spout. The system features one maize and two grass settings: one grass door position for first cut, heavy silage and the second, which virtually eliminates the gap between the blower and the grass door, for light second and third cut silage. In grass-mode, the blower is situated 20cm closer to the cutterhead and offers savings of up to 40hp to enhance overall machine efficiency. The operator can swiftly change between the two settings in less than two minutes without the need for tools to maximise efficiency during tight harvesting windows.

New Holland Launch Their 2013 Harvest Campaign

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

New Holland introduces the Roll Baler range, a new series of professional fixed chamber round balers

Friday, September 7th, 2012

The new Roll Baler range of heavy duty fixed chamber round balers is set to become the default choice for professional baling operations. The three model line-up, featuring the standard Roll Baler 125, and two combination baler-wrapper models: the Roll Baler 125 Combi and the Roll Baler 135 Ultra, is set to redefine the benchmark in terms of bale density and wrapping flexibility. Moreover, the sleek modern design and premium construction further enhance the range’s appeal.

“The heavy duty Roll Baler has been engineered by design to offer outstanding in-field performance, uniformly dense bales, efficient road transport and bullet proof reliability. Everything professional contractors and large scale dairy farmers are looking for to boost their productivity.” Stated Bob Hatz, head of Hay and Forage Product Management. “Furthermore, the flagship Roll Baler completes New Holland’s round baler line up, alongside the standard BR6000, fixed chamber baler and the BR7000, variable chamber models.”

Efficient feeding and precision chopping improve profitability and bale quality

The 2.1m pick-up working width for both Roll Baler 125 models and the 2.2m pick-up working width for the Roll Baler 135 model ensure that every last piece of valuable crop is efficiently transferred into the chamber, even when working in heavy first cut silage or dense straw swaths produced by today’s high capacity combines. The five tine bars maintain positive contact with the crop and provide an even flow to prevent clogging. The 470mm diameter rotor features 10mm thick tines for exceptional reliability and durability to further extend machine life.

Precision engineered rollers ensure uniform bale formation and enhance machine reliability

The Roll Baler range features 18 rollers each with a 200mm diameter, for accurate and uniform bale formation. Their aggressive profile maintains contact with the crop, independent of crop type and condition, for dense core formation and uniform filling. Overall machine longevity is enhanced, as the high number of rollers ensures that bale weight is equally spread across the entire circumference of the chamber during formation. It also eliminates excessive loading points. Roller working life has been extended, thanks to a highly wear-resistant material used in their construction. This is perfect for operations that work extensively in particularly abrasive crops.

Flexible wrapping with both net and plastic film options

Contractors can offer their customers even greater flexibility as both the Roll Baler 125 Combi and the Roll Baler 135 Ultra are compatible with both traditional net wrap and state of the art film wrap. Film wrapping offers a whole host of benefits including an improved bale oxygen barrier: this facilitates the fermentation process for higher quality forage

Furthermore, once the initial film layer has been applied, during the wrapping process, the overall cost of wrap is significantly lower. This is because uniform side and end wrapping can be achieved in a shorter time with a reduced quantity of wrap.

Intuitive monitor for fingertip control

The dedicated bale monitor features intuitive impulse contact buttons for true fingertip control. An easy to read display enables operators to monitor and control a whole host of parameters including bale density, PTO speed, net/film indication, manual and automatic tying selection and even the number of wraps per bale. Contractors can provide accurate job reports courtesy of the bale counter which can store up to 50 individual customers’ bale counts, and farmers can accurately monitor the yield per field.

Precision hydraulic operation improves baling efficiency

When used in conjunction with a tractor featuring load sensing hydraulics, the Roll Baler automatically controls the hydraulic flow, using only the precise volume required to maintain pick-up performance and pressure.

Exceptional stability and tyre configurations reduce compaction and increase transport comfort

The Roll Baler range’s low centre of gravity guarantees outstanding stability even when working on the most extreme gradients and side slopes. Owners can tailor the configuration of their Roll Baler to suit their needs courtesy of the tyre offering. All tyre configurations comply with the stringent three metre transport width restriction. Super wide, 500 x 22.5 flotation tyres are available on the Roll Baler 125 that reduce compaction to facilitate valuable regrowth, as well as enhancing traction in boggy conditions. The 55/50R17 tyres are available on both the Roll Baler 125 Combi and on the Roll Baler 135 Ultra for a silky smooth transport ride.

Easy servicing for reduced downtime

New Holland knows that during tight baling windows, every second spent in the yard is a second lost in the field. That is why the Roll Baler has been designed to offer the ultimate in easy servicing. The single piece, light weight front shield provides easy access to all servicing and lubrication points. The centralised automatic greasing system assures long life as does the automatic oiling system which continuously oils all chains.

Exactly what it says on the shielding

New Holland has applied its evolved numbering strategy to the Roll Baler range of fixed chamber round balers to make their performance immediately obvious to customers. The Roll Baler highlights the use of roller technology to form the bale. The numbers, either 125 or 135 denote the bale diameter in centimetres. ‘Combi’ indicates a combination baler-wrapper and the 135 ‘Ultra’ emphasises this model’s heavy duty baling and wrapping usage profile.
