New Holland’s recently-launched flagship FR920 SPFH will be on display at next month’s Cereals Event. Powered by an FPT Industrial V20 block developed specifically for forage harvesting applications, the engine generates a maximum power of 911hp (670kW) at 1600-1800rpm, and a 44% torque rise at 2100-1600rpm. Designed to act fast to changing load, New Holland says the V20 delivers the most fuel-efficient performance in the 1600 to 1900rpm working range.

 

Visitors will also see the CR9.80 Revelation 24" SmarTrax with Flex Technology, a model from the firm’s latest range of rotary combines. Part of the CR Revelation range, both narrow and wide width models feature more space in the rotor tube for increased capacity at a lower power requirement, and the new styling is claimed to improve visibility and serviceability.

 

The narrow frame CR7.90 and CR8.80 features a revised rotor cage, which increases the space available for threshing, while the latest Twin Pitch Rotors and a revised Dynamic Feed Roll are designed to maintain crop throughput in even the most difficult harvesting conditions. Wide frame models now feature Twin Pitch Plus as standard, the rotor configuration that was developed for the CR10.90.

 

The CR8.90, CR9.80, CR9.90 and CR10.90 all benefit from a revised residue management system including, a chaff distribution system, a revised straw chopper rotor for finer chopping and, revisions to the Opti-Spread system to ensure even spreading of chopped material out to 14.5m.

 

A model from the new 4-pot T6 Dynamic Command tractor range with new eight step semi-powershift transmission will also be at Cereals. Offering between 145 and 175hp (max) with engine power management, the 24x24 Dynamic Command adds further choice to the Basildon-built range, complementing the T6 Electro Command and Auto Command models. The first demonstration units are now with dealers.

 

Additional tractors heading to the show include a version from the two-model T7 Heavy Duty range, which are the most powerful tractors ever built in Basildon.
