New Holland CR Combine: Up to 15% Higher Capacity and Improved Grain Quality and Productivity 

New Holland, PA (August 12, 2013) - New Holland's range of Twin Rotor® CR combines have been further upgraded to deliver superb productivity in already benchmark harvesting performance. The CR range's industry-leading grain and straw quality is now complemented by up to an impressive capacity increase of up to 15%, and enhanced operating flexibility in all crops

"The latest CR upgrades are testament to our unceasing quest to improve the harvesting productivity of the world's professional farmers and combine harvesters," stated New Holland Combine Marketing Manager Nigel Mackenzie. "The Dynamic Feed Roll, part of the Dynamic Stone Protection system, has improved capacity by up to 15%, and the largest grain tanks in the segment significantly enhance harvesting productivity."

Dynamic Feed Roll: improves capacity by up to 15%
Dynamic Stone Protection utilizes a Dynamic Feed Roll, located within the feeder housing, to simultaneously speed up the crop for smoother, streamlined feeding, and automatically directs stones into a dedicated trap. The Dynamic Feed Roll, available on all models, improves feeder performance by up to 10% thanks to greater throughput. Furthermore, this on-the-go system means you can keep harvesting on stony ground without the need to stop.

New high-intensity light package for true, around the clock harvesting
New Holland has introduced its most complete lighting package on the CR range, simultaneously improving the spread of light to the front of the combine by up to 55%. Featuring four HID work lamps, mounted under the cab roof, the full width of the header is fully illuminated during work. A fifth HID light has been installed on the left wing mirror strut, and illuminates the field ahead, enabling operators to pre-empt changes in terrain or crop conditions.

Two halogen lamps are mounted to the rear shield, and cast a broad spread of light to enable operators to monitor residue distribution or straw flow from the rear of the combine. Two additional lamps are positioned to illuminate the area around rear steering wheels, to prevent operators inadvertently driving over standing crop or valuable straw.

Operator comfort has been further enhanced courtesy of the upgraded seat with deep cushions and extended fore-after adjustment to ensure operators are comfortable during long-hour harvest days. The optional, heated full-leather seat offers a luxurious touch for the most demanding customers.

Second generation cleaning shoe: up to 8% higher capacity in corn
The cleaning shoe on CR8090 and CR9090 models delivers up to 8% higher performance in high yielding corn. The cleaning shoe now features a larger diameter clean grain cross auger to speed the transition of grain into the elevator. This allows for improved air distribution across the cleaning shoe and leads to increased capacity.

Increased grain tank capacity: compatible with wider headers and faster unloading
The CR8090 and CR9090 models both feature an enlarged 410-bushel grain tank, 17% larger than previous models. This larger tank capacity requires less frequent unloading to significantly enhance harvesting productivity. Furthermore, unloading times have been maintained thanks to an increased unloading speed: unloading rates of up to 4 bu./second mean a full 410-bushel tank can be emptied in around 100 seconds. In order to facilitate unloading when working with the widest flex and draper headers, a new, extra-long 31.5 ft. unloading auger makes on-the-go unloading even easier.

Wider tire offering: reduced compaction and enhanced traction
The entire CR range is compatible with extra tall, large diameter 900/75/R32 tires. These tires offer a significantly larger footprint, when compared to traditional flotation tires, to significantly reduce yield-impacting compaction and enhance traction in demanding conditions.

The entire range is also compatible with 900/60/R38 Michelin Cerexbib specialist combine tires, and tests have shown, when combined with the CR's optimal weight distribution, in-field compaction rates have been reduced by up to 35% when compared with standard tires.
