New Holland, Pa. (March 24, 2017) – New Holland Agriculture, a brand of CNH Industrial (NYSE: CNHI /MI: CNHI), has received the “Machine of the Year” award bestowed in the Combine category at the SIMA 2017 International Agribusiness show in Paris, France.
New Holland’s flagship CR and CX combines, featuring the technically innovative Everest leveling System, were chosen by the jury for delivering harvesting productivity and efficiency benefits for customers. New Holland’s Super-conventional CX8 Series combines and its flagship rotary CR7.90, CR8.80 and CR8.90 (currently only available for Zedelgem models) combines featuring the Everest leveling System have been awarded based on selection criteria focusing on innovative features, performance, productivity, cost of operations, ease of use and operator comfort.
The CX and CR Everest models compensate lateral slopes of up to 20% to maintain perfect horizontality for the combine and optimize the loading of grain, effectively delivering the same outstanding performance as on level ground. The Everest System can also work in combination with a self-leveling shoe to deliver 100% efficiency on slopes of up to 36% and improves combine capacity even in the most demanding conditions. The combine’s cab remains horizontal up to 20% so the operator can maintain attention throughout the day without any tiredness due to the position of the combine in side hills. The Everest System, developed in co-operation with I2J Solutions, is totally integrated and does not modify the structure of the machine’s base unit.
