New Holland, PA (May 30, 2009) - New Holland Wins Five AE50 Awards for Engineering Innovations
New Holland, PA -New Holland has been honored with five prestigious AE50 Awards by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) for the most innovative product ideas to enter the market in 2008.
The AE50 Awards are based on new technology or the advancement of existing technology intended principally for producing, processing, storing, packaging or transporting agricultural, food and other biological products. To be nominated, a product must have the potential for broad impact on its area or industries. Only 50 products are chosen for the award each year.
The following New Holland products were presented with AE50 awards:
New Holland H9800 Series Self-Propelled Automatic Bale Wagon and Mil-Stak® Large Bale Loader Attachment permits handling loads of 3'x3' bales or 3'x4' bales. The Mil-Stak bale clamp can be easily removed or attached to allow an operator to switch between picking up large and small square bales. This saves considerable time and boosts efficiency because an accumulator isn't needed to pick up the big, square bales, nor is manual handling required to load them onto a truck. The attachment is manufactured by Mil-Stak in Fruitland, Idaho.
Tongue-Mounted Swiveling PTO-Driven Gear Pump for New Holland H7150 Haybine® Mower-Conditioner. New Holland's new H7150 Haybine® mower-conditioner combines the cutting capacity of a self-propelled windrower with the convenience of a highly maneuverable pivot-tongue hitch for fast, efficient haymaking. The new tongue-mounted pivoting pump makes hook-up very easy: just drop in a hitch pin and connect the telescoping 1000 rpm PTO shaft to the tractor PTO. There's no need to lift a heavy pump to attach to the tractor PTO shaft.
New Holland 750HD Specialty Crop Header delivers Speedrower® windrower performance and reliability to delicate crops that don't require conditioning, including grass seed, mint and flower seed. The 12-disc "Grass Seed Saver" 750HD header attaches to a New Holland H8080 or H8060 windrower to slice through 15-1/2 feet at a clip. It features the MowMaxTM true modular cutterbar, designed to cut cleanly, be more durable, and easier to service. The head design makes consistent, evenly formed windrows, minimizes seed loss and delivers significantly more throughput capacity than sickle heads.
The specially designed push bar allows the head to gradually engage the crop to minimize seed loss. The crop is cut and flows to a tapered auger that transfers and discharges the crop rearward, free of restriction to make a consistently even windrow.
New Holland CR9090 Elevation Combine is the highest capacity combine in the world. The 35-ft. VarifeedTM header, 591 hp Iveco Cursor 13TCD engine and a grain capacity of 350 bushels is the biggest the market.
Eight-Range Hydrostatic Transmission with Integrated Hydraulic Control System for the New Holland TV6070 Bidirectional™ Tractor. Electronic control of range allows the transmission to automatically downshift the range when under heavy loads. When the load returns to normal, the range returns to the selected one automatically. This feature, which provides greater power to the wheels and reduces the possibility of the transmission overheating, is especially valuable during road transport in hilly areas and when performing loader work.
