New Holland Swivel-Hitch Discbine® Mower-Conditioners Built for Tight Turns 

New Holland, PA (August 31, 2010) - Haymakers can now take advantage of New Holland Discbine® disc mower-conditioners with the exceptional maneuverability, precise cutting and tight-turning capabilities made possible by a unique bent-tongue design swivel hitch.

"The swivel hitch enables the operator to make sharp turns in both directions, particularly to the left. It saves time when making turns in both the field and in transport mode," says Mike Cornman, New Holland Hay and Forage Segment Marketing Manager.

New Holland's new H7230 and H7330 Discbine disc mower-conditioners offer the convenience and performance of a swivel hitch. The unique bent-tongue design features a constant-velocity joint driveline for on-the-go hydraulic swing for precise movement. The swivel hitch and the constant velocity driveline allows the operator to mow at almost any angle and make square and over-square corners without vibration or noise, and can be swung on-the-go to cut around field obstacles. The swivel hitch option is offered in both two-point and drawbar hitch versions.

Like all New Holland's Discbine disc mower-conditioners, the new swivel-hitch models feature the latest advances in disc cutterbar technology: the MowMax™ true modular cutterbar with the protection of ShockPRO™ disc drive hubs. The MowMax cutterbar is standard on all H7000 Series Discbine disc mower-conditioners, ensuring a cleaner cut, reduced operating costs and less downtime.

For gentle hay handling and fast dry down, New Holland's Discbine disc mower-conditioners offer a choice of conditioning methods. The H7230 features chevron-design, intermeshing rubber or steel rolls that ensure consistent, gentle and thorough conditioning. For grass type crops that can take advantage of more aggressive conditioning, tapered flails on the H7330 provide fast-drying, time-saving flail conditioning that gets haymaking off to a quicker start. Both provide a 10'4" cutting width.
