New Holland showcases new CR8.80 combine at UK-wide Harvest Demo tour

• Harvest Demonstration Tour visiting many UK locations in August and September
• Tour showcases the new CR8.80 combine

New Holland has announced the dates for its UK-wide Harvest Demonstration tour which will visit a number of different locations from 12th August to 9th September. The tour will showcase the new CR8.80 combine, in action with a 30’ VarifeedTM header.

The CR8.80 is the latest in the CR range, offering farmers a very high output machine in a extremely narrow format suitable for tight lanes and narrow gateways. The engine features New Holland’s EcoBlue Hi-eSCR engine technology to comply with the latest Tier 4B emissions regulations and the optional tall 710/70 R42 tyres or 24” tracks help keep the overall width to 3.3m.

The CR8.80 brings togther a powerful efficient engine with advanced harvesting technology, including IntelliSteer® auto guidance to deliver even greater efficiency. ECOblueTM technology lowers fuel consumption by up to 10% and reduces operating costs.

Capable of operating with a 30’ (9.1m) VarifeedTM table, the CR8.80 with its brand new FPT Cursor 11 engine, is capable of operating at over 50 tonnes per hour in wheat. The CR8.80 features the same Twin Pitch RotorTM technology and Dynamic Feed Roll module as can be found in the range topping CR10.90.

At each event there will be a selection of machinery supplied by the supporting dealer. Each demonstration day will feature: a product walk around with New Holland staff, working demonstrations, opportunities for ‘ride and drive’, as well as refreshments.

Nigel Honeyman, New Holland's Combine Product Specialist, says: “The UK-wide Harvest Demonstration Tour will be the first opportunity for people to view the new CR8.80 at work. This offers a fantastic opportunity for prospective customers to assess the machine’s potential with our combine working on-farm and harvesting commercial crops.”

Nigel continues: “This year’s tour reflects our on-going commitment to innovation. The new CR8.80 has New Holland innovation at the heart of its design, whether it’s greater fuel efficiency, increased grain handling capacity, or more efficient cutting and straw management. However it is compact for more diversity and efficiency of use.”
