• Integrated IntelliSteerTM auto-guidance: Eliminates pass-to-pass overlap
• Improved steering control: Smooth, responsive handling
New Holland's new Speedrower® self-propelled windrowers allow producers to get the job done quicker than ever before while providing the industry-leading power, control, comfort and performance hay producers have come to expect from New Holland.
"In hay and grain fields, New Holland's new Speedrower self-propelled windrowers provide unsurpassed productivity with speed and the smoothest operation in the industry," says Tony Peters, New Holland Product Manager for Hay & Harvest.
INTELLISTEERTM INTEGRATED AUTO-GUIDANCE: ELIMINATES PASS-TO-PASS OVERLAP
Speedrower windrowers now have integrated, factory-installed IntelliSteerTM auto-guidance. They can provide cutting accuracies from +/- 2.5cm to 20cm, eliminating pass-to-pass overlap in wide cutting and swathing applications. Guidance and steering are both controlled hydraulically, so there's no delay in response due to wires, electronics and steering linkages used by other windrowers.
IMPROVED STEERING CONTROL AND SUSPENSION: SMOOTH, RESPONSIVE HANDLING
The new hydraulically controlled steering system eliminates mechanical steering linkages for simpler, more precise steering. Combined with New Holland's best-in-class, patented independent rear axle suspension and Comfort RideTM cab suspension, the new Speedrower provides smooth, more responsive windrower handling and allows operators to increase their speed and efficiency on uneven terrain. The heavier designed tailforks provide increased structural integrity, while the single cast arm supports with 16.L tires provide a smooth ride over pivot irrigation or clearance when swathing tall fluffy windrows.
INDEPENDENT HYDRAULIC HEADER FLOTATION AND DROP RATE
The Speedrower 130/200/240 draper models are equipped with independent header flotation, which allows the operator to adjust flotation separately for the right and left side of the head, without leaving the cab. Head flotation and drop rate are adjusted independent of each other. The drop rate for how quickly the header lowers to the ground-is factory set, but also has a 1 to 10 user preference setting, making this important feature more user-friendly.
A new hydraulic system on draper-ready equipped Speedrower Series windrowers is matched with DuraSwathTM draper heads providing increased power to the knife, draper and reel circuits. The split hydraulic system features two oversized 151 litre/minute piston pumps, allowing the knife to run on one circuit and the draper belts and reel to run on another. This eliminates pressure downstream and provides more available hydraulic horsepower, reducing the need for overall tractor horsepower thereby lowering fuel usage.
In-cab speed sensors come standard, allowing the operator to view the knife, reel, and draper belt circuit speeds directly on the monitor. A lift arm position sensor provides a header height readout on the display. If multiple operators operate the same machine, owners can set and lock the flotation adjustment to the setting they prefer.
POWER DOWN LIFT ARM FUNCTION
Headers can be removed and attached with ease by hydraulically lowering the header lift arms to remove the header without the need for manual handling. This power down option allows a single person to change heads easily and speed to the next field.
WIDE RANGE OF HEADERS
New Holland offers a wide range of headers to suit the SR series Speedrower. The Durabine range offering 4.9m & 5.9m cut offers a range of conditioning packs to include rubber chevron rollers for pastier & lucerne, Steel chevron rollers suitable for cereal crops and the unique super conditioner, developed in Australia for the export hay business.
Also available for cutting hay, New Holland offers the renowned sickle bar mowers from 4.27m to 5.5m. Additionally a full range of DuraSwath draper heads are available from7.6m to 12.2m. The new DuraSwath has been specifically designed for those wanting to windrow canola.
