New Holland’s harvest demonstration tour started in Bicester on 25th July and will visit 12 locations across the UK during August and September. The tour is showcasing the new CR combine models due to be launched at Agritechnica in November.
Both rotary (CR) and mid-range CX models have been upgraded to increase productivity and throughput, whilst maintaining grain quality. Farmers will have the opportunity to ride and drive to get a feel for the new models’ improvements at the tour stops.
New additions to mid-range CX5 and CX6 combines include specialised CX5.90 and CX6.90 Laterale models. These machines are perfect for those farming on more extreme terrain as hydraulic rams work to maintain a level chassis on side slopes. Standard models benefit from the award-winning Triple-CleanTM, a three-tier cascaded cleaning shoe, providing a 15% increase in performance.
Improvements to the cab across the CX models bring the mid-range combine ranges closer to their flagship CX7 and CX8 siblings, and offer significant improvements for operator comfort and safety. New interior features include a user-friendly and ergonomic dashboard, wider passenger seat and, right hand module. New exterior LED light packages improve visibility.
The new CX models are built with mixed farmers in mind. OptiSpeedTM auto-adaptive technology is now standard on both ranges. Operators’ benefit from increased separation power without the risk of blockage thanks to the variable speed straw walker.
