New Holland has further extended its line-up of equipment with Tier 4A engines with the addition of five new CR Series Twin Rotor combines and three new CX8000 Series Super Conventional combines equipped with ECOBlue Selective Catalytic Reduction engine technology.
As a result, New Holland offers the largest range of Tier 4A compliant products in the industry with 20 tractors in the over 100-hp T7, T8 and T9 Series range and eight combines available in North America.
New Holland's Tier 4A engines offer improved power, performance and reduced fuel consumption thanks to ECOBlue SCR engine technology.
New Holland has introduced an industry first: a choice between two different forms of stone protection. For producers working in extremely stony conditions, Dynamic Stone Protection, a mechanical stone protection system, is available as an option for New Holland CR8090 and CR9090 combines.
This system performs similarly to a stone trap in a conventional combine. It features an 18-inch diameter closed beater and stone trap module that mounts between the rotor frame and the feeder. Any stones entering the feeder are propelled into a sump below the beater.
The Dynamic Stone Protection system can improve feeding performance in heavy, damp conditions. On-the-go harvesting is guaranteed as the stone trap only needs to be emptied once a day.
The operator empties the sump by engaging a lever conveniently located to the left-hand side of the feeder. Also available across the entire CR range is New Holland's Advanced Stone Protection (ASP) System, which automatically detects and ejects stones to fully protect internal threshing elements while providing unobstructed, high-capacity feeding for optimum grain quality.
The powerful new Opti-Spread system, an option available on CR8080, CR8090 and CR9090 combines, is mounted behind the straw chopper and evenly distributes chopped straw across the full header width. It meets a wide range of spreading width requirements and can be conveniently controlled from the cab.
The optional spreader uses variable speed rotating discs and adjustable deflectors to neutralize the effects of sidewinds or sloping ground.
Touch screen display
All Model Year 2012 CR and CX Series combines feature the new extra wide 10.4" IntelliView IV color touch screen monitor display.
Although the screen size is the same as the IntelliView Plus II screen, the new display's overall dimensions are significantly smaller and it weighs less. In addition, the IntelliView IV display has direct USB connectivity and can display images from up to three camera inputs.
New Holland has also introduced a new SuperFlex draper head specifically designed to match the high capacity of New Holland CR Series Twin Rotor and CX8000 Series Super-Conventional combines.
A patented, rubber spring flotation system allows the 880CF head to follow ground contours more closely.
The rubber torsion springs on each floor support can be adjusted manually to tailor flotation to conditions or to compensate for any cutterbar unevenness.
The six-bat reel smoothly feeds crop to the cutterbar, which cuts cleanly using three-inch guards and overserrated knife sections with 10 teeth per inch. Reel sensors provide for easy return-to-cut after each pass.
A shorter skid shoe design reduces weight and allows the cutterbar to cut closer to the ground for better cutterbar flexing.
The hydraulic center knife drive system uses a patented single gearbox mounted under the center draper to drive both knife assemblies. This unique and patented design distributes weight evenly, neutralizes header vibration and leads to exceptionally smooth cutting action.
Variable-speed outer draper belts and fixed-speed twin 41.6-inch center draper belts deliver the crop smoothly to the floating 26-inch-diameter auger.
The auger features five-inch flighting and handles heavy crop and feeds it smoothly into the combine. A flatter auger floor angle aids crop flow. The auger can be adjusted up, down, fore and aft to match conditions and a new, patented rubber retention system prevents
