New Holland has further confirmed its position as the industry leading harvesting manufacturer, with two Agritechnica silver medals for combine harvester innovations.

Advanced harvesting technology nets New Holland two Agritechnica silver medals


Advanced harvesting technology nets New Holland two Agritechnica silver medals

• Ground-breaking Opti-Speed™ strawwalkers: up to 10% higher productivity
• Innovative Cornrower header: one-pass swathing reduces operating costs and improves bale density by up to 15%
• Harvesting innovations maximise sustainable food and energy production

New Holland has further confirmed its position as the industry leading harvesting manufacturer, with two Agritechnica silver medals for combine harvester innovations. The unique-in-the-industry Opti-Speed™ strawwalker system improves productivity by up to 10% and the Cornrower header perfectly combines in field efficiency with New Holland’s hallmark commitment to sustainable farming practices.

“New Holland is committed to developing innovations which bring practical benefits to the world’s farmers and contractors.” Stated Carlo Lambro, Brand President, New Holland Agriculture. “Furthermore we, together with the world’s farmers, have the great responsibility of maximising sustainable food and energy production. Opti-Speed™ technology helps reduce losses, which subsequently means more grain is available for food production. The innovative Cornrower header enables farmers to produce both food and fodder from maize crops as well as converting the previously wasted by-product of maize stover into productive energy through biomass.”

Ground-breaking Opti-Speed™ strawwalkers: up to 10% higher productivity

The Opti-Speed™ strawwalker technology, which was recognised with a silver medal, is exclusively available on the CX7000 and CX8000 Elevation range of super conventional combines. The range, which includes the world’s most powerful strawwalker machine, producing up to 490hp, is extensively used by the world’s professional large-scale farmers and contractors.

The unique Opti-Speed™ system delivers up to 10% higher productivity by automatically varying the strawwalker speed based on the field’s gradient. The operator simply selects from four pre-set crops, and the Opti-Speed™ system autonomously modifies the strawwalker speed. When driving uphill, the strawwalker speed reduces to decrease the transport speed of the straw over the strawwalkers and when driving downhill, strawwalker speed is increased to prevent blockages. Moreover, in flat fields, this system is particularly beneficial for maize harvesting thanks to slower strawwalker speeds. As such, a productivity gain of as much as 20% can be achieved.

Innovative Cornrower header: one-pass swathing reduces operating costs and improves bale density by up to 15%

New Holland, through its Clean Energy Leader® strategy, is committed to improving farming productivity and sustainability and the silver medal winning Cornrower header is a key element in this. The fully integrated Cornrower system can be fitted to conventional maize headers, and it produces uniform windrows of finely chopped maize stover. This fine chop can increase bale density by up to 15%, and the bales also benefit from improved combustion and fermentation profiles, perfect for biomass production.

This one pass system reduces operations’ fuel consumption as well as limiting in field compaction. Furthermore, all maize stover is chopped and remains clean and free from dirt and stones. Any lost kernels fall onto the windrow, and as such bales used as fodder have an improved nutritional profile. This superfine chop system also allows the stover to release moisture more quickly to reduce the time from chopping to baling. Additional usages include as absorbent animal bedding and as a ration supplement which, when mixed with hydrated lime and water can help to reduce the cost of fodder by up to 40% when compared to traditional maize silage.

New Holland has received a gold medal and an honourable mention at the 2013 Sitevi awards.

New Holland triumphs at Sitevi 2013 with ultra-clean and advanced harvesting technology


New Holland triumphs at Sitevi 2013 with ultra-clean and advanced harvesting technology

• Gold medal winning Opti-Grape™ technology: up to five times better cleaning performance
• Honourable mention for in-cab anthocyanin readings: monitor grape maturity in real time

New Holland has received a gold medal and an honourable mention at the 2013 Sitevi awards. A gold medal was bestowed on Opti-Grape™ technology, which delivers best-in-class cleaning performance. The CAN bus system, which displays the data from FORCE-A’s real-time grape maturity sensor on the IntelliView™ III monitor on Braud 9000 machines, was recognised with an honourable mention.

“We are delighted that these advances in grape harvesting technology have been recognised.” Stated Gaffoglio Maggiorino, Head of the Grape Harvester business. “We are fully committed to ensuring that our complete range of Braud grape harvesters delivers unsurpassed quality for today’s exacting viticulture businesses and customers.”

Opti-Grape™ technology: up to five times better cleaning performance

The gold medal winning Opti-Grape™ technology uses a unique in the industry system, which delivers an air cushioned blowing surface: a rotary turbine blows air through a fine mesh to eliminate all material other than grape (MOG) before it falls down into the hopper. Situated at the end of the cleaning system and above the hopper, the driver adapts the air cushion’s strength by changing the turbine speed depending on the desired quality of sorting. As a result, the driver can directly adjust the quality of grape cleanliness. The air flow is directed through 4300 2mm diameter holes to remove even the tiniest impurities such as petioles, stalks, wood, bits of leaves and stems, together with dried, mouldy and botrytised grapes. This material is blown above the grapes and removed. The result is a higher quality, less ‘green’ tasting wine, which enhances grower profitability and the desirability of the harvest.

The high pressure air cushion surface technology has been developed in addition to an host of improvements in the cleaning system, which include a new pre sorter ; two sets of rollers in the pre-selection area, which enhances cleaning efficiency by up to 20%, as MOG simply falls away through the gaps. Furthermore, the top aspirator on the receiving conveyor has also been upgraded to remove even more debris during the initial cleaning process. Grape quality has improved significantly, as only the grapes which remains on the bunch pass through the final destemmer, protecting those which have already been separated.

The Opti-Grape™ system underwent rigorous field testing, both in the Northern and Southern hemispheres and when compared to traditional cleaning technologies, the Opti-Grape™ system dramatically reduces MOG levels by up to five times, with MOG content as low as 0.1%. This can assist grape growers in maximising profitability, as the need for additional MOG sorting is substantially reduced. The system has no productivity impact, and can be used at normal harvesting speeds for most varieties of red grape. Operators which harvest both red and white grapes can simply disengage the system from the cab. By removing MOG, but also dry, mouldy and botrytised fruits, the system influences the grapes at the beginning of the vinification process, which directly impacts the quality of the final product.

In-cab anthocyanin readings: monitor grape maturity in real time

New Holland has developed full compatibility between the Braud 9000’s CAN bus network and FORCE-A’s Multiplex® sensor to display real-time anthocyanin readings on the IntelliView™ III colour touchscreen monitor. Available across the entire Braud 9000 range, this Multiplex® sensor is situated above the hopper and uses unique optical technology to determine the anthocyanin content of the grapes, a key indicator of grape maturity. This solution is instantaneous and non-invasive, so maintains grape integrity. Operators can view and record the milligrams per litre of anthocyanin as well as monitor the heterogeneity of the hopper on the IntelliView™ III screen thanks to CAN bus technology. The anthocyanin reading is displayed for each load, which helps in the decision making process for subsequent vinification. This system can also be linked to the Braud 9000’s integrated mapping functionality. In conjunction with GPS data for positioning, a map of the anthocyanin spatial variability of the entire parcel can be produced to enable vineyards to tailor inputs to ensure optimal grape maturity, as well as selecting individual parcels for particular blends of grape. This data can be fully integrated with that obtained from EnoControl to further refine the grape harvesting process.


New Holland’s BigBaler range of large square balers has further cemented its position as the industry-leader with a coveted SIMA Silver Innovation Medal.

New Holland’s BigBaler receives SIMA Silver Innovation Award for industry-leading safety

• Best-in-class baler safety enhances the operator experience
• Industry-leading throughput of up to 110 bales/hour
• Up to 20% capacity increase and up to 5% denser bales for improved productivity

New Holland’s BigBaler range of large square balers has further cemented its position as the industry-leader with a coveted SIMA Silver Innovation Medal. The international jury of agricultural experts were particularly impressed by the cutting-edge safety features, which enhance operator safety with a zero-tools approach, whilst maintaining best-in-class outputs. Furthermore, the BigBaler is just the latest product in the renewed, professional hay and forage product line up, which features the updated FR range of forage harvesters and the new Roll Baler, high density, fixed chamber round baler.

The BigBaler is produced at New Holland’s global Centre of Harvesting Excellence, in Zedelgem, Belgium, where it benefits from the world’s most advanced harvesting expertise. The facility, which recently gained the World Class Manufacturing bronze level, is home to both product management and development teams together with the testing and manufacturing departments; this fully integrated model ensures close collaboration and continual dialogue to guarantee the peerless competitiveness, functionality and quality of the BigBaler. Zedelgem is also home to the flagship rotary CR and conventional CX combines, as well as the renowned range of FR forage harvesters.

“We are delighted that the jury have recognised the great strides that we are making to improve operator safety in the current BigBaler range, the culmination of over twenty-five years of continuous development.” Stated Franco Fusignani, Head of New Holland Agriculture. “We are not only committed to enhancing agribusinesses’ profits, but also to improving the lives of the people who work with our machines every day. Safety is right at the top of our agenda.”

Guaranteed safe and secure operation
The BigBaler range was designed with safety in mind, as New Holland knows that safety is fundamental, and that when operators are under pressure to bring the crop home in prime condition, short cuts can be fatal. Furthermore, these advanced safety systems have been engineered by design to be tool free for swift, hassle free access.

A unique safety system has been developed so that the front shield can only be opened when the baler is completely stationary: when the PTO has been deactivated and when the flywheel brake has been engaged. Only when these conditions have been met, can the operator unlatch the front shied, using a dedicated lever.

Side doors are opened in absolute safety, and operator strain is reduced, as opening is assisted by powerful gas struts, which also support the side shields when they are open. Operator safety has been further enhanced, as there is no access to any moving components via the twine boxes. The super flat service platform on top of the baler makes working at height even safer, especially when combined with the grab rails. A dedicated needle-locking device is conveniently situated near the rear-access ladder and prevents access to the knotting system unless the lock has been engaged.

Industry leading productivity, efficiency and throughput: up to 110 bales/hour
The BigBaler range has further raised the benchmark in the large square baling sector, and it has become the default choice for professional baling operations, biomass contractors and power generation businesses. As most productive large square baler in the segment, the BigBaler can produce up to 110 bales/hour, for unsurpassed throughput.

The MaxiSweep™ pickup ensures constant, smooth feeding of an even greater volume of crop, and has contributed to up to a 20% capacity increases. Bale density has been further improved by up to 5% courtesy of the enhanced pre-compression chamber which benefits from advanced SmartFill™ technology, which uses a network of sensors to guide the operator to maintain even flake formation for uniformly dense bales.

Advanced PLM solutions such as ActiveWeigh™ on-the-go bale weighing technology, can be recorded together with moisture content, date and time and the bale’s GPS location to create precise yield and field mapping data, so that inputs can be fine-tuned to increase productivity and profitability for future seasons.

The significant throughput and quality advantages of the BigBaler have been further recognised with a prestigious AE50 award, conferred by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers. The BigBaler range was regarded as one of the fifty most innovative product ideas to enter the market in 2012.

ECOBraud: Sustainable Viticulture, reducing the in vineyard carbon footprints by up to 40% and improving operator safety

ECOBraud, New Holland’s Sustainable Viticulture program, is aimed at increasing productivity and profitability whilst reducing the environmental impact of viticulture and is an integral element of the Clean Energy Leader strategy. ECOBraud encompasses the complete range of New Holland viticulture equipment, including Braud grape harvesters and speciality tractors, and will enable a reduction in the carbon footprint in the vineyards by up to 40%. This will directly contribute to a 10% reduction in the overall carbon footprint of each and every bottle of wine produced.


New Holland’s new range of Braud 9000 multi-function harvesters has set a new benchmark in terms of carbon reductionand increased harvesting safety. The Intelligent Management System (IMS) which controls principal machine functions in relation to load can today reduce fuel consumption by up to 31%. When combined with the controlled rate application of fertilisers, a total reduction of the in-vineyard carbon footprint of 40% will be achieved .

Operator safety is enhanced by conducting an on-board diagnosis of eventual principal malfunctions and subsequently alerts the operator as well as automatically stopping the machine or disengaging the self-levelling system to prevent potentially dangerous situations arising. The operator is also protected against accidental misuse as a whole host of functions, including forward speed, levelling and hopper empting can only be performed when the operator is present.

A real-time stability indicator uses a network of sensors which transfers data, such as the exact weight on each wheel, lateral slope, ground conditions, hopper fill level and distribution and the use of multifunction equipment, in real-time to the on-board computer.

This information is then combined to alert the operator when the vehicle approaches its stability threshold via the intuitive IntelliView™ III monitor. This active safety device is available in multifunction mode, as well as when harvesting on difficult terrain.

The machine’s height and the lateral position are automatically adjusted, with zero operator input, to prevent eventual accidents and to increase overall harvesting safety, even when operating in the most difficult and undulating terrain and during high speed road transport.

The worldwide production of olive oil is steadily growing and in order to increase productivity and to control the associated cost increases...

Braud 9090X Olive harvester: enhancing harvesting efficiency by up to 20% and more than doubling harvesting speed to improve Super Intensive Olive operations’ productivity


Braud 9090X Olive harvester: enhancing harvesting efficiency by up to 20% and more than doubling harvesting speed to improve Super Intensive Olive operations’ productivity

The worldwide production of olive oil is steadily growing and in order to increase productivity and to control the associated cost increases, growers are moving towards super intensive plantations which require highly mechanised harvesting techniques.

New Holland, together with growers, has developed the pioneering new Braud 9090X Olive that can increase harvesting efficiency by up to 20% and more than double the harvesting speed for significant improvements in productivity.



The model features a shaker frame that has been engineered by design with dedicated front/middle and rear rollers that package the tree before and after shaking for optimal harvesting. The harvesting head can work in three dimensions and both guides and clamps the foliage to ensure a smooth flow into the patented dual-articulated Noria baskets, which subsequently convey the olives into the hoppers.

New Holland’s renowned double harvesting shaker system, has been expressly designed to overcome the significant resistance forces encountered when harvesting olives from trees, which are ten times higher than those of conventional, liana style vines.

The main shaker system is composed of 2x17 rods which act upon the rigid part of the tree together with the additional 2x4 tight rods that harvest the upper and flexible part of the tree where the highest quality olives are found. An additional second patented shaker system with 2x4 rods increases the harvesting efficiency at the very top of the tree. This state of the art technology has significant benefits in terms of harvesting efficiency, with over 95% of olives harvested at a constant forward speed of approximately two kilometres per hour. Thismeans olives are picked at their optimum ripeness for the very highest returns for producers.

New Holland has revolutionised the way headers are powered with the centrally mounted SynchroKnife™ drive

SynchroKnife™ drive: increased harvesting uniformity, comfort and quality for combine headers


SynchroKnife™ drive: increased harvesting uniformity, comfort and quality for combine headers

New Holland has revolutionised the way headers are powered with the centrally mounted SynchroKnife™ drive. It ensures an even weight distribution across the entire header for increased stubble height uniformity. Furthermore, these perfectly balanced headers ensure advanced header height control mechanisms, such as Auto Float™ II, work more effectively.

This slim profile solution is neatly situated under the header floor, which maintains smooth crop flow into the header for improved feeding characteristics, as well as reducing non-functional width, and decreasing potential snagging of valuable standing crop by eliminating bulky side-mounted gearboxes.

The central location of the SynchroKnife™ drive has reduced mechanical complexity by eliminating the need for secondary gearboxes on draper headers. Dual opposing hydraulically driven knife drives have substantially reduced the stress on the knife bar which has consequently improved reliability and reduced the likelihood of costly, productivity impacting downtime during the intensive harvest season.

Furthermore, this system has considerably increased in-cab comfort by reducing the vibrations reaching the operator. These heads are designed to fit CR and CX8000 ranges of combine harvesters.

Smart Key: improved operator and fleet management


Smart Key: improved operator and fleet management

The Smart Key provides farmers and contractors with a productivity enhancing tool both for the operator and fleet management. It also combats the increasing prevalence of farm machinery theft.

Each operator will be given their own, unique Smart Key which will significantly improve their day-to-day operating experience. Each Smart Key is equipped with a fully programmable radio frequency identification chip with a unique key identifier that enables fleet owners to control the operators working attitude and the fleet usage.


Personal Smart Keys assigned to the operators can be programmed to work with selected machines within a fleet (up to 40 machines can be assigned to every key), or as a ‘master key’ which is compatible with all machines. This ensures that operators can only start the machines which have been pre-specified for their personal key.

Moreover, a single key is compatible with all New Holland products, eliminating the need to carry multiple keys. Specific machine parameters can be linked to each key, for example limiting the top road speed on machines driven by ‘rookie’ drivers. Individual operators can recall their preferred machine settings via the IntelliView™ monitor, which automatically recognises the key owner upon start-up, enabling them to get straight on with the job, reducing unproductive time spent inputting personal preferences every time.

The system can also record individual operator profiles, such as their average fuel consumption, hectares worked and eventual operator misuse, and these are transmitted via telematics to the management software. This enables farm managers to assign individual tasks to the most efficient operators for increased profitability. It also provides large agribusinesses with an electronic record of hours worked for simplified accounting.

Individual SmartKey profiles are managed via the machine’s IntelliView™ monitor (for machines not equipped with a touchscreen display, technical support and programming are conducted by the local dealer). In order to access the electronic Key Management Menu (KMM), which defines the key profile, or profiles, for that particular machine, the user defined Vehicle Access Code (VAC) is used. Via the KMM, keys can be added or deleted, or a back-up can be made. An expiry date can also be set for individual keys to prevent machine misuse when on contract hire or during use by casual labour. A unique VAC can be chosen for every machine, or the same VAC can be used for the entire fleet.

Intelligent Trailer Braking System: best in class road safety and stability


Intelligent Trailer Braking System: best in class road safety and stability

The Intelligent Trailer Braking system enhances safety by automatically controlling the valve which regulates the braking force exerted on the trailer in relation to the tractor’s deceleration, thereby creating an equalised braking effect between tractor and trailer. An electronic control system, which modulates the trailer brakes, ensures uniform tractor and trailer braking to eliminate the ‘pushing’ effect, which can ultimately lead to dangerous jack-knifing.

This system enhances transport safety when decelerating with the transmission or the engine brake, as this reduction in speed is sensed, and the same process of trailer brake modulation occurs, to ensure the trailer reaches the target deceleration as quickly and safely as possible. This controlled and harmonised braking force means that the stopping distance of the tractor and trailer combination is virtually the same as that of the tractor alone when decelerating.

New Holland received an honourable mention for its revolutionary ECOBraud concept, which enables vineyards to calculate their carbon footprint, and provides strategies for reducing overall greenhouse gas emissions.

Silver Medal for the Active Safety and Weighing System
New Holland’s new range of Braud 9000 multi-function harvesters has set a new benchmark in terms of harvesting safety. A network of sensors are located on key points of the machines’ frame which transfer data in real-time to the on-board computer, this information is then combined with that from the inclinometers to alert the operator when the vehicle approaches its stability threshold via the intuitive IntelliView™ III monitor. The machine can even put into place a series of measures to prevent driver errors, as well as automatically taking control of the machine for guaranteed operator safety.

This active safety device is available in multifunction mode as well as when harvesting on difficult ground. The machine’s height and the lateral position are automatically adjusted, with zero operator input, to prevent eventual accidents and to increase overall harvesting safety, even when operating in the most difficult and undulating ground and during high speed road transport.

The ASW system also benefits from integrated grape weighing functionality. As the hoppers are emptied, an accurate measurement is made of the actual harvested tonnage which enhances accurate yield monitoring, enables operations to fine tune inputs and also to manage crop volumes to guarantee the highest quality end product for improved profitability.

Braud 9090X Olive for Super Intensive Olive Farming earns a Silver Medal
New Holland knows that harvest quality is of supreme importance for super intensive olive growers. The new Braud 9090X Olive can enhance harvesting and efficiency by up to 20%. It features a shaker frame that has been engineered by design to adapt to the shape of the tree, its age and even its yield. The harvesting head can work in three dimensions and both guides and clamps the foliage to ensure a smooth flow into the patented Noria baskets, which subsequently convey the olives into the hoppers. New Holland’s renowned shaker system, with 2 x 21 high power shakers, has been specifically developed to overcome the significant resistance forces encountered when harvesting olives from trees, which are ten times higher than those in conventional, liana style vines. Moreover, as the highest quality olives are found at the very top of the tree, a second shaker system enables the Braud 9090X Olive to harvest these highest value crops. This state of the art technology has significant benefits in terms of harvesting efficiency, with over 95% of olives harvested at a constant forward speed of approximately two kilometres per hour, for olives that are picked at their optimum ripeness for the very highest returns for producers.

ECOBraud carbon footprint reduction strategy wows the judges
The Sitevi jury recognised the pioneering status of the ECOBraud approach to assist winegrowers in reducing their carbon footprint with an honourable mention. As an integrated element of New Holland’s Clean Energy Leader strategy, winegrowers will be able to use an internet interface to calculate the carbon footprint of their vineyard, and it will also provide them with concrete information as to how to reduce their overall greenhouse gas emissions.

This will be used in conjunction with the 2009 award-winning Intelligent Management System (IMS) that controls principal machine functions in relation to load and can today reduce fuel consumption by up to 31%. The second generation system will control the variable rate application of inputs, and will contribute to up to an impressive 40% reduction in the carbon footprint of vineyard businesses, which, in real terms, means a 10% reduction per bottle. This is of growing commercial importance, as the food and drink industry are moving towards low-carbon suppliers, and consumers are becoming ever more carbon conscious when making purchasing decisions.

The Crop ID™ system, awarded with the SIMA Innovation Award 2011, records information in real time about every bale.

Crop ID™ system for the Big Baler BB9000 range


The Crop ID™ system, awarded with the SIMA Innovation Award 2011, records information in real time about every bale. As the bale passes through the chamber, an empty radio frequency ID tag is applied, and when it exits the chamber, and passes off the chute, the information recorded by the Crop ID™ Precision Information Processor, including bale weight, moisture content, date and time and its GPS location, is transferred onto the tag. An infrared scanner can be used to read the tag and to ensure the correct bale is selected for every situation.

Anti-lock braking systems for cars and lorries are now commonplace.

ABS SuperSteer™ system


ABS SuperSteer™ system

Anti-lock braking systems for cars and lorries are now commonplace. But the added complications of heavy mounted articulated equipments, uneven terrain and a huge amount of variation in traction conditions, even from wheel to wheel, means that an effective antilock braking system for tractors requires more advanced development. New Holland has won a silver award for its ABS SuperSteer™ - a smart application of ABS technology to tractors, which not only offers confident stopping power with increased safety, but also increases tractor manoeuvrability and improves safety when operating on steep hills.

ABS SuperSteer™ uses ABS technology to manage each wheel’s brake individually. This new feature will be available on current and future New Holland high power, high speed tractors like the T7000 Auto Command. ABS SuperSteer™ will enable a new generation of 60kph-capable, front-axle suspension tractors achieve an outstanding level of field agility and comfortable ride control.

New Holland’s pioneering SuperSteer™ axle remains available on New Holland’s range of tractors from 40 to 325hp but is limited to a top speed of 40 kph.

Using a single foot pedal, the ABS SuperSteer™ allows the tractor to be steered by the brakes. Two orange pedal extensions either side of a single pedal replace the conventional, independent two-pedal arrangement. At low speed, this provides the driver with the same single-wheel steering as a conventional tractor, but automatically disables at higher speeds to prevent accidental application.

The ABS SuperSteer™ function includes tyre slip control and automatic coupling with the steering angle. This allows the tractor to perform tight turning manoeuvres without driver intervention on brakes by pivoting on a braked rear wheel, reducing the turning circle to that of a tractor fitted with a SuperSteer™ front axle. A driver-selectable amount of slip on the pivoting wheel is allowed to prevent soil damage.

The hill holder function improves tractor control on slopes, automatically engaging the brakes to prevent the machine rolling back during hill starts and easing clutch engagement.


Dealing with longitudinal slopes:the Opti-fan™ System blowing precision.

Opti-Fan™ system


Opti-Fan™ system

AE50 AWARD 2011, INNOVATION GOLD MEDAL AGROSALOON 2010, TECHNICAL INNOVATION FIMA 2010, SILVER MEDAL AGRITECHNICA 2009


The multi award-winning Opti-Fan™ system consists of a simple yet very effective way of correcting fluctuations in the speed grain flow across the cleaning shoe. Whether working up-hill or down-hill, the fan speed automatically adapts to the direction and to the degree of the slope.

The Opti-Fan™ system takes combine performance on slopes to the next stage, with automatic compensation for continuous uphill or downhill gradients.

When driving downhill, material moves against gravity and therefore more slowly over the grainpan and top sieve, causing it to remain longer in the cleaning shoe and the layer thickness to increase. More ‘material other than grain' (MOG) remains in the cleaning shoe as the set cleaning fan speed is insufficient to clear the crop. Driving uphill causes the material layer to decrease as it moves more quickly out of the shoe under gravity. The air flow from the fan is too high for the thin layer of material which results in the material travelling too quickly over the top causing increased grain losses.

The fan speed control system senses the combine’s angle of ascent or descent and automatically adjusts the cleaning fan speed to compensate. The operator sets the level-field fan speed and the system reduces the speed when travelling uphill and increases it downhill to optimise the material layer thickness on the cleaning shoe. No extra work is required from the driver and losses are reduced and the grain sample is improved.

IntelliFill™ system


IntelliFill™ system

Receiving a Gold medal, Agritechnica’s highest award, the FR9000’s IntelliFill™ system allows the operator to fill a trailer accurately and with minimal losses, even when visibility is limited. Following a front-to-rear or rear-to-front pattern, the automatic trailer tracking system uses a specialised 3D camera mounted under the spout to guide the crop flow into the trailer. The system ensures a uniform fill whether the trailer is alongside the forage harvester, or following, in the case of starting new fields. The system can accurately control the crop flow trajectory even when operating at night.

The spout-mounted sensor creates a distance image of the trailer and its surroundings, based on NIR (near infra red) technology. Unlike conventional mono or stereo camera systems, which have poor depth perception, the New Holland tracking system can accurately position the crop flow to a distance of 20 metres.

The system can operate in conjunction with any trailer without need to calibrate or adjust to recognise any new trailer. This allows the operator to automatically control the position of the spout and to consistently fill any type of trailer.

The driver benefits from improved operating comfort and safety and is able to concentrate on the front of the machine and increasing work rate. During long working days, and even in the dark, the automatic spout guidance will consistently reduce spoilage of crop, thus increasing the overall quality of work of the forage harvester.
