New Holland’s acclaimed range of Twin Rotor™ CR combines are present at New Holland South Africa stand at Nampo show. The stand will be animated by daily demo activities, videos and all New Holland best product displays.
“The latest CR upgrades are testament to our unceasing quest to improve the harvesting productivity of the world’s professional farmers and contractors,” stated Hedley Cooper, Head of Combine Harvester Product Management. “The all-new and proven Dynamic Feed Roll™, with integrated dynamic stone protection has improved capacity by up to 15%. The range continues to offer intelligent innovations that improves harvesting productivity and the operator experience such as the SmartTrax™ system and the IntelliView™ IV colour touch screen monitor.”
Dynamic Feed Roll™ with integrated dynamic stone protection: significant productivity increase (optional)
The all-new Dynamic Feed Roll, located in front of the rotors, positively feeds the rotors for smoother, streamlined feeding and automatically directs stones into a dedicated trap. The additional roll, available on all models, improves feeder performance by up to 15% thanks to greater throughput. Furthermore, the on-the-go Dynamic Stone Protection means you can keep harvesting on stony ground without the need to stop.
Productivity can be further increased via advanced PLM® technology. All CR combines are delivered PLM® Connect Telematics ready, which enables eventual retrofit by authorized New Holland dealers.
Reduced compaction and improved traction
New Holland has developed the SmartTrax™ system in-house to ensure that it is the perfect match for CR combines. The triangle structure has been designed to reduce ground pressure by up to an impressive 57%, when compared to wheeled machines, and to improve stability while maintaining the manoeuvrability of tyred combines.
Flexible rotor solutions for guaranteed harvesting efficiency
The pure rotary breed CR combines feature New Holland Twin Rotor™ technology for unsurpassed grain quality, with a mere 0.1% cracked grain – the lowest in the entire industry. Furthermore the unique rotor design provides the best straw quality for baling. The Twin Rotor’s spiral design propels the crop gently backwards to assist in effective threshing and separation. These rotors are perfect for extensive operations where maximum throughput in all conditions is required.
The CR is available in both narrow and wide frame versions. The 17” rotors are fitted to the narrow frame CR8070 model and the heavy duty, high capacity 22” design are fitted to the wide frame CR9080 model. The 17” rotors have two intake flights, whereas the 22” variant offers three intake flights; both options feature a dedicated separation and threshing area that guarantees complete threshing and separation.
For extensive harvest operations, the Twin Pitch rotors are the default choice for people searching for high performance in all crops and conditions. Featuring 44 elements, they maintain aggressive separation in difficult harvesting conditions, while offering good straw and grain quality and keeping fuel consumption low.
The CR range’s rotors can be precision adjusted to cope with changing conditions.
Opti-Clean™ system enhances cleaning efficiency
The Opti-Clean™ system optimizes the stroke and throwing angles in the cleaning system for enhanced cleaning efficiency. The grain pan, pre and top sieves operate independently to optimize the cascade for increased capacity. The longer sieve stroke and steep throwing angle keep more material airborne. The opposing motion of the grain pan and bottom sieve on one side, to the pre-sieve and the top sieve on the other, reduces overall machine vibrations and increases operator comfort.
Intelliview IV monitor
The IntelliView™ IV features increased screen size, maintaining the intuitive simplicity of today's screen. Furthermore, it is fully compatible with New Holland’s complete range of Auto Guidance products: IntelliSteer™, fully integrated auto guidance, the SmartSteer™ system and row guidance can be programmed and managed via the screen. The operator can also adjust its position to suit their individual preferences.
Improved feeding performance with the new reinforced feeder
The CR’s feeding system has been redesigned to further increase throughput capacity and to allow the fitment of wider headers. On wide frame models, the feeder now features four chains with connecting slats for improved crop flow when working in heavy or dense crops for improved throughput. The feeder housing has also been further strengthen and benefits from a 25% increased lift capacity which offers compatibility with a larger range of headers
Improved grain handling
The grain handling system on the CR range has been further upgraded to match the increased capacity and throughput of the range.
The unloading spout has been completely redesigned, and directs the crop in a forward and outward direction for better distribution and a longer unloading distance, which means taller, higher capacity trailers and chaser bins can be used. In order to match their enhanced performance, the CR9080 can feature an optional unloading auger extension of 1.3 m to further increase unloading flexibility. Unloading speed has also increased by 15% which means the largest 12,500 litre grain tank can still be emptied in 100 seconds.
In order to continually monitor grain quality, a convenient viewing window has been positioned in the cab just behind the operator. Consequently, the operator can immediately adjust machine parameters if required. For physical sampling, a grain sample flap can be accessed from the operator’s platform.
