FR FORAGE CRUISER Forage Harvesters



Powerful. Respect. For you. For your farm. For the future.

The FR Forage Cruiser range benefits from the productivity enhancing features of FPT Industrial Cursor 13, 16 and V20 engines equipped with Tier 4B ECOBlue™ HI-eSCR technology on FR480 - FR650 models and Stage V ECOBlue™ HI-eSCR 2 technology on the FR780 and FR920 models. Both systems maintain the outstanding performance and fuel economy you’ve come to expect of the FR range. Through the Clean Energy Leader strategy, New Holland is committed to making agriculture more efficient while respecting the environment. 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. What does this mean? Clean running power units that offer improved performance and enhanced fuel economy.

ECOBlue™ HI-eSCR technology for Tier 4B compliance

The FR650 and FR780 are powered by the 2014 Diesel of the Year engine, FPT Industrial’s Cursor 16 powerplant and features Tier 4B ECOBlue™ HI-eSCR technology on FR650 and Stage V ECOBlue™ HI-eSCR 2 technology on FR780. What’s more the FR650 has 5%* increased capacity while consuming 21%* less fuel than the larger predecessor FR700 model. Meaning you quite literally can do more with less.

* Refers to official DLG certified test data - maize 8mm chop length.

Transient response

Here at New Holland we’re passionate about transient response. You might think what’s that? Quite simply the FR range’s power curve has been specifically mapped to match the precise requirements of foraging applications. When that is combined with ECOBlue™ HI-eSCR technology the FR’s engine reacts quicker to changing load, so when you encounter a particularly dense area of the maize field your engine will respond in the blink of an eye so you experience zero harvesting slow-down.

Automatic working modes for the highest work rates

The FR Forage Cruiser has two driving modes: Power Cruise and ECO engine management, which can be selected independently or used in conjunction with each other. Selection is based on crop conditions and operator preference.
Power Cruise™ II system: automatically adapts engine and ground speed in relation to actual load for fuel savings of up to 15%. During periods of reduced load, during headland turns for example, engine speed is reduced to improve fuel efficiency. When throughput increases, so does engine speed to maintain a higher work rate.
ECO engine management mode: benefits from two settings, a high range where engine speed can be set between 2100 - 1950rpm, ideal for foraging grass, and a low range which spans 1850 - 1700rpm, which is perfect when working in maize. The operator sets the desired engine speed and the ECO management mode works to ensure the engine always remains fully loaded to deliver optimal operating efficiency and performance, whilst maintaining a constant forward speed. The top transport speed of 40kph can be achieved at a mere 1200rpm with 20% fuel savings and a quieter operating environment.
