With New Holland, beauty is more than skin deep.



    The four-model New Holland CX5 and CX6 strawwalker combine series offers a specification choice to exactly match specific end user demands. Available with 600mm diameter, 4 drum threshing technology, these five and six-straw walker combines benefit from a host of developments to boost productivity in more demanding terrain. The proven Triple-Clean™ and self-levelling Smart Sieve™ cleaning system – which operates on slopes of up to 25% - is now matched to the Opti-Speed™ variable speed strawwalker system. Proven in the higher capacity CX7 and CX8 combine models, Opti-Speed automatically adjusts the speed of the strawwalkers both up and down slopes to deliver productivity improvements of up to 10% in hilly areas. Other new features include standard hydraulic reel reversal, an automated clean out system to speed preparing the combine when moving between different crops and a new cab with even greater space, improved visibility and enhanced comfort. Power comes from proven NEF or Cursor engines compliant with the Stage V emission standards. Fuel efficient and clean running, the power units develop maximum power outputs of of 258hp - 340hp at a modest 2000rpm. In undulating terrain, these versatile combines have the power and specification to deliver level-land productivity and cleaning performance. For those that operate in more demanding terrain, CX5 and CX6 Laterale models offer slope correction of up to 18% on both sides. The CX5.90 Hillside model offers side hill correction of up to 38%. All models are offered with a choice of headers to include High Capacity and Varifeed™ grain headers of up to 9.15m. For maize, five, six and eight row maize headers are available. New Holland. Specification choice to match specific end user needs.

    The new midrange CX5 & CX6 models are manufactured in Plock, Poland in collaboration with New Holland’s Centre of Global Harvesting Excellence in Zedelgem, Belgium. It was here in Zedelgem, over 100 years ago, that Leon Claeys built his very first threshing machine that revolutionised the way farmers harvested. Zedelgem is synonymous with harvesting firsts, in 1952 it produced the first European self-propelled combine harvester. Today, yellow blooded engineers are committed to developing the next generation of harvesting products. The sophisticated product development process and the extensive knowledge of a dedicated workforce of a World Class Manufacturing facility ensure the CX5 & CX6 range, together with all flagship harvesting products, the CR Twin Rotor™ combine, BigBaler large square balers and FR forage harvester, continues to set the benchmark in harvesting.

    A powerful crop flow from the very beginning: the large diameter reel, with easy reel adjustments, the aggressive knife action and the retractable fingers over the full intake auger width, ensure consistent crop feeding right from the start. No valuable time is wasted with the quick header coupling system and the trouble-free clearing of blockages.

    New Holland has developed a five, six and eight-row maize header line-up which has been engineered by design to perfectly match the CX5 & CX6 operating profile. Following extensive field testing, both the rigid and flip-up versions deliver improved harvesting productivity and reliability.

    The CX5 and CX6 feed elevator features four chains with connecting slats for improved, continuous crop flow. From the Varifeed™ header through the elevator to the drum, a continuous crop flow is produced. This ensures bunching of crop in difficult conditions is greatly reduced, for more efficient throughput.

    New Holland CX5 and CX6 combine models are offered with the four-drum Opti-Thresh™ that adds a Rotary Separator and Straw Flow™ beater. Opti-Thresh adapts to suit a wide variety of crops and conditions, boosting productivity without compromising kernel or straw quality. The design of the adjustable plates on the beater has been improved to further enhance raking of straw from the drum with reduced kernel damage. To further enhance productivity and efficiency, all CX5 and CX6 models are fitted with the same Opti-Speed™ system employed on the larger CX7 and CX8 range. Opti-Speed™ automatically varies the speed of the strawwalkers to compensate for sloping ground. When climbing a slope, the walker speed is slowed to retain straw to ensure remaining kernels are shaken free from the crop residue. When travelling down a slope, the speed of the walkers is increased to help prevent straw falling forward and hindering crop flow. Other developments include a revised beater design, featuring square profile adjustable beater plates to enhance straw rake-off from the drum, reduce kernel damage and perform better in damp conditions.

    The cleaning efficiency of the New Holland CX5 & CX6 combine models matches their high threshing and separation capacity. Large adjustable sieves, moving in opposite directions, and a powerful fan delivering an even distribution of air, are complemented by ingenuous extra features: the Triple-Clean™ cascaded cleaning system, the Smart Sieve™ concept that virtually eliminates side slope effects and the award-winning Opti-Fan™ system that adapts the air flow to the longitudinal slope of the combine.

    High unloading rates reduce time loss to a minimum. Unloading into even the highest type of grain trailer is easy, the over-top unloading system featuring a choice of 4.75m, 5.50m and new 6.4m unloading auger lengths. Excellent visibility of the unloading auger ensures smooth and uninterrupted harvesting when unloading on the move. High grain tank capacities deliver increased field autonomy.

    High quality straw, ideal for baling is the result of the wide range of adjustment possibilities. In situations where the straw is chopped, the correct management of residue is important, especially where reduced tillage methods are practiced.

    The CX5 & CX6 combines benefit from the productivity enhancing features of FPT Industrial Nef and Cursor 9 engines, equipped with ECOBlue™ HI-eSCR 2 technology for Stage V compliance. The proven ECOBlue™ technology uses AdBlue to transform the harmful nitrogen oxides contained in the exhaust gas into harmless water and nitrogen. This after-treatment system is separate from the engine which means the engine only breathes clean, fresh air. This results in clean running power units that offer improved performance and enhanced fuel economy.

    Purpose developed for CX5 and CX6 combines, the new Harvest Suite™ Deluxe cab is 200mm wider and more spacious, an adjustable steering column and smaller steering wheel delivering improved ergonomics and even better visibility over the header. Additional work lights are standard, with detail improvements to include full-width hand rails over the front of the combine to facilitate cleaning through to new control buttons, two USB ports and an optional heated floor mat. Job data recording is now possible via the onboard printer option. The cab volume has increased to 3.7m³ and boasts 6.3m2 of glass, and you can enjoy all that space in the peace and quiet of the near silent 73dB(A) cab. The new automotive inspired interior, features an ultramodern dark grey colour scheme, which has been extended to the headliner, armrest and rear bulkhead. With the new Harvest Suite™ Deluxe cab, there is truly luxury in space.

    Automation saves time and boosts harvester performance. The multi-function lever on the CX5 & CX6 combine models is the proven CommandGrip™ handle. It is built into the console on the operator’s right hand side. The position of this console is adjustable to suit the operator’s preference and the CommandGrip™ is a forcebased propulsion handle that always comes back to its most ergonomic position irrespective of forward speed. It provides access to all major controls.

    Increasing yields, or saving money through reduced inputs: precision farming is a practice that makes use of site specific crop data in turn allowing optimum treatment and seed application in the subsequent periods. CX5 & CX6 combine models are ready to receive the equipment that supports this way of operating.
  • 360°: CX5 & CX6

    The CX range has been designed to spend more time working and less time in the yard. After all, we all know how precious time in the field is during short harvesting seasons. All service points are easy to access, and long service intervals mean they will spend more time in the field.
