New Holland, Pa. (August 29, 2017) – The proven leader of haytools, New Holland Agriculture is pleased to introduce two new disc mower-conditioners into its comprehensive product portfolio. The new Discbine 310 and 312 offer productive 10’ 4” and 11’ 6” cutting widths, a low-profile cutterbar, and a choice of conditioning systems that will be at home in a wide variety of crops – from light grasses to sturdy bermuda.
“Baling great quality hay starts with a great cut and an efficient dry down process, which is essential to the hay making process,” said Daniel Valen, Director of product marketing for New Holland North America. “The new 310 and 312 Discbines continue the New Holland tradition to do just that, but in a package that satisfies the customers with the need for an easy to transport design to maximize their efficiency and productivity. “
The productive new Discbine 310 and 312 models are designed to mow cleanly and maneuver quickly to speed up hay and forage making operations. Unlike traditional, side-pull mower-conditioners, the versatile center-pivot machines with swivel hitch design have the ability to mow right, left or even in line with the accompanying tractor, this allows the operator to alternate mowing positions with every other pass.
The new low profile disc cutterbar cleanly slices through tough crops, working at a shallow angle to ensure crop flows smoothly over the cutterbar and into the conditioner to provide even conditioning.
In addition to providing a clean cut on every pass, the new Discbines provide peace of mind and time-saving, easy maintenance. Simple and convenient adjustments can be made while working in even the most difficult conditions and a responsive mower suspension precisely follows field contours, resulting in reduced drying time and increased quality. Equipped with the QuickMax knife change system, the special knife release tool easily frees the blade from the disc so knife maintenance is fast and cut quality is ensured.
