TAKE THAT TO THE BANK. New Holland introduces another industry-first: a choice between two stone protection systems that prevent costly stone damage and downtime. New CR Series combines are available with the well proven Advanced Stone Protection™ system or the NEW Dynamic Stone Protection (DSP) system.
NEW DYNAMIC STONE PROTECTION™ SYSTEM
This is an all-new, on-the-go mechanical system designed by New Holland to achieve maximum feeding efficiency and stone detection effectiveness in extremely stony conditions. Stones are automatically directed by an 18-inch-diameter, closed beater into a dedicated, stone trap located between the feeder and rotors. There’s no stopping, no hesitation, no interruption of the harvesting process whatsoever. You keep on harvesting for an increase of up to 10% in daily capacity when operating in stony conditions. Simply empty the stone trap module during routine maintenance.
The addition of the Dynamic Stone Protection™ system between the feeder and rotors improves feeding performance, and reduces the risk of crop roping, especially in heavy, damp conditions.
ADVANCED STONE PROTECTION™ SYSTEM
The Advanced Stone Protection (ASP™) system uses two electro-acoustic sound filters to “listen” for stones both large and small and stop the head and feeder automatically when a stone is detected. The full-width ejection door opens to allow the stones to escape easily. It requires minimum operator input. An alarm and message appears on the IntelliView™ IV monitor to alert you that the door is open. To continue harvesting, simply reverse and raise the feeder to close the door. The ASP system detects stones, with minimum false detection and without mechanical parts to impede crop flow. And, it ensures an unobstructed flow of crop from the feeder to the rotors for enhanced grain and straw quality, increased capacity, and of course, the protection of internal components.
