A uniform length of cut not only yields high-quality feed, it makes everything easier—unloading, blowing, storing and feeding. The key to a consistent chop is smooth crop flow through the forage harvester. It's a process New Holland has perfected. And it's what makes these forage harvesters so effective.
SMOOTH, POWER-DRIVEN FEEDROLLS
Top chop quality starts with four power-driven feedrolls that deliver material smoothly to the cutterhead. The front feedrolls are aggressive to handle heavy materials and pull in slugs. The smaller, rear feedrolls grip the crop tightly to ensure an even, precise cut. Spring-loaded upper feedrolls keep material compressed.
UNIFORM CHOPPING WITH 12-KNIFE CUTTERHEAD
The heart of these forage harvesters is the massive 12-knife cutterhead that's built to move more crop and chop it uniformly using full-width, spiral, hardened-alloy knives with tungsten edges. There's no better cutterhead on the market, and none that's easier to sharpen.
MORE CUT LENGTH CHOICES
You'll get the widest selection of cut lengths to meet your exact feeding requirements. Vary length of cut by changing feedroll speed, adding or removing knives or by using one of six optional recutter screens for nonprocessor machines.
NO SLOWDOWN AT THE BLOWER
Smooth crop flow continues at the blower. A 1000-rpm blower on the FP230 and FP240 moves crop fast for increased productivity. A quick-shift, two-speed blower on the 790 lets you gear down the tractor in easy-to-blow crops.
