• New Harvest Suite™ Ultra cab from New Holland gives combine operators the ultimate in comfort, safety and efficiency
• The new cab is available on the CR range of New Holland combines
New Holland invited visitors to Cereals 2015 to test out the extra comfort on offer in its new Harvest Suite™ Ultra cab, available on the company’s CR range of combines.
Completely re-designed after extensive customer consultation, the new Harvest Suite™ Ultra cab takes operator comfort, safety and efficiency to the next level and offers a home away from home for operators working long hours during the busy harvest period.
The cab is bigger and more spacious, offering greater storage space and an integrated fridge that keeps food and drinks cool and can be removed for easy replenishment. A choice of two different seating options provides the ultimate in comfort, ideal for when the ride gets a bit bumpy.
The near-silent cab - 73dB(A) - and adjustable air conditioning will help keep stress levels low when the temperature gets turned up in the rush to get crops in.
With 6.3m2 of glass (7% more than previous models) and a panoramic view, the new cab offers fantastic visibility. The cab floor slopes down into the front windscreen, giving operators a clear view of the header, and perfectly shaped side glass gives an uninterrupted view of the unloading auger. Wide angle electric mirrors can be adjusted from the cab, and with as many as six optional viewing cameras, managed through the new IntelliView™ IV monitor, operators can have eyes in the back of their heads.
Ergonomic control of all harvesting operations is provided by the new harvesting console. Designed to become an extension of the operator, the force-based Command Grip™ multifunction handle delivers intuitive control and finger-tip adjustment of speed for ultimate performance.
Even the lighting package has been redesigned to improve visibility and safety into the night. The spread of light has been precision engineered for maximum visibility of the entire header as well as the field ahead and behind. Specific unloading auger lights allow precision unloading – even in pitch darkness.
Nigel Honeyman, New Holland's Combine Product Specialist, says: “Feedback from our customers has heavily influenced design of our new Harvest Suite™ Ultra cab. Visibility, comfort and safety are paramount at harvest, so we’ve made the new cab a great place to work. Operators can sit back and relax, knowing that a host of innovative features will help them optimise productivity.
“At the heart of all our combines is innovation. Through exclusive, innovative features and designs, New Holland has produced super-efficient and powerful combines that maximises harvest efficiency and provide exceptional comfort for operators.”
