New Holland Equipment Showcased at 2018 Farm Progress Show Boosts Quality Forage Production
- FR920 Forage Cruiser self-propelled forage harvester
- Megacutter™ triple disc mower-conditioner
- C245 Super Boom® compact track loader
- LM Series large-frame telehandlers
New Holland’s new FR920 Forage Cruiser self-propelled forage harvester features a massively powerful, yet fuel-efficient engine designed to produce best-in-class chop quality and throughput. It delivers 911 horsepower and a productivity-boosting 44 percent torque rise to power through the tough spots. It’s the largest, most powerful model in the Forage Cruiser line.
Real-time yield and moisture data can be collected. Forage Cruisers with yield and moisture systems can also be fitted with ActiveLoc™, a feature that will automatically vary the chopper’s length of cut based on the changing moisture content of the crop. The Evo NIR sensor from Dinamica Generale provides real-time moisture and nutrient parameters with accuracy within 2 percent - ideal when producing livestock feed.
With PLM™ Connect telematics, all this data can be quickly and easily shared remotely with a trusted third-party service like an agronomist or animal nutritionist without having to physically transfer and deliver it.
“By increasing an operation’s overall connectivity, data can reach its full potential by getting the right information to the right people to make the right decisions, without having to pull the USB drive and take it back and forth to the machine,” says Luke Zerby, New Holland PLM Product Marketing
Manager. “For example, harvest data that includes feed quality information as well as yield information could be used to calculate what percent of the daily ration the forage can make up so that it is either used by the next season or that it stretches out until the next harvest.”
Winning the race for quality hay
Additionally, MegaCutter 533 is ISOBUS compliant and easy to operate from the IntelliView™ IV display and integrates Automatic Headland functions, which activate sequential raise to perform seamless turns.
Material handling versatility
For big jobs, the new C245 Super Boom® vertical lift compact track loader is a powerhouse, the largest, most powerful ever offered by New Holland. The C245 features a 90-HP engine, a 4,500-lb. rated operating capacity, and 9,200-lb. breakout force. New Holland’s patented, vertical-lift Super Boom design reaches up and out to dump cleanly into the center of spreaders, high-sided trucks and hoppers. Operators can empty the bucket faster and easier, which in turn increases cycle times.
LM Series large-frame telehandlers combine the vertical lift of a forklift, the strength and speed of a wheel loader, and the maneuverability of a skid steer, all in one versatile machine. “They’re a one-machine solution for moving massive amounts of material fast, including picking up, transporting and stacking large bales. A bucket can be swapped quickly to handle other jobs,” says Justin Raski, Marketing Manager Telehandlers & Ag Loaders. The new models are equipped with new fuel-efficient Tier 4B, four-liter NEF engines.
