Pics: New tractors, combines and forage cruiser for New Holland at Agritechnica
New Holland has launched three new machines at this year’s Agritechnica; two new tractor models, new combines and a forage cruiser.
The new T7.290 and T7.315 tractors are to meet the demand for growers needing increased power, but the versatility to perform numerous jobs.
These new T7 series tractors deliver power without compromise, class-leading torque and high efficiency and according to New Holland, these models offer growers unparalleled versatility for performing a wide range of field and haulage jobs.
Primary and secondary cultivations, drilling, baling, mowing and haulage tasks all fall within the capabilities of these new T7 models.
The new models also feature New Holland’s Intellicruise tractor-baler automation that allows the New Holland Bigbaler to control the tractor’s speed according to changes in the windrow to maximise productivity and bale consistency.
A four-speed rear PTO and a two-speed front PTO allow the engine to be operated as efficiently as possible.
New Holland states that the two new T7 models can mount larger group 48 and 49 tyres (2050mm and 2170mm diameters) with a rear tyre width up to 900mm.
This results in excellent traction and, most importantly, minimal soil compaction. The T7.290 has a max power of 290hp while the T7.315 has a max power of 313hp.
New Holland’s CX Series combines
Also at this year’s Agritechnica event, New Holland launched the new generation CX Series of super conventional combines – two five-straw walker and four six-straw walker models.
According to New Holland, the new models set new standards of operator comfort, grain and straw quality, productivity and versatility while preserving the soil with lower compaction.
The CX range has been expanded with the new CX8.85 450hp six-straw walker model with a 12,500L grain tank.
The Harvest Suite Ultra cab is new to the CX Series and the result of extensive customer consultation.
The ultra-wide 10.5in IntelliView IV colour touchscreen monitor is mounted on rollers so that it can be positioned just as the operator wants it.
New Holland states that operators will be comfortable throughout the longest working days with a choice of three seat options.
Unloading speed has increased by 14% which means the largest 12,500L grain tank can still be emptied in under two minutes thanks to a 125L/second unloading speed, according to New Holland.
New Holland’s FR Forage Cruiser
The new FR Forage Cruiser self-propelled forage harvesters deliver consistently high chop quality and industry-leading crop processing efficiency.
According to New Holland, the new five-model line-up offers superior comfort in the spacious flagship cab, enabling operators to make the most of the forage harvester’s exceptional productivity with its ergonomic layout and intuitive automation.
The new FR Forage Cruiser features the largest cutter head in the industry – both in width and diameter – that powers through crop lumps effortlessly, New Holland states.
The cutter head is available in five configurations to match the specific chopping requirements: 2×8, 2×10, 2×12, 2×16 and 2×20 knives for a length of cut range of 6 to 33 mm, 5 to 27 mm, 4 to 22 mm, 3 to 16 mm, and 2 to 13 mm respectively.
All models of the new FR series feature engines developed by FPT Industrial; the two smaller models run versions of the proven Cursor 13 engine tuned to the constant high loads experienced when harvesting forage.
The flagship cab of the new FR Forage Cruiser provides operators with a comfortable work station. The cab provides exceptional 360-degree panoramic visibility, with curved windows offering a perfect view of the header and spout, whatever its position.
