New Holland claims its new CR Series combines not only offer unmatched efficiencies when harvesting but provide industry-leading grain and straw quality with a mere 0.1 per cent grain cracking.

The CR’s unique twin-rotor design provides high-quality straw for baling, and is the perfect choice for extensive operations where maximum throughput is required. With its spiral design propelling the crop gently backwards it’s highly efficient in ensuring effective threshing and separation.

"Coming from a farming background I originally favoured conventional combines to handle large volumes of straw but after experiencing the twin rotor combine I have found not only do they handle the volume but produce a superior sample with far less grain loss," long-term New Holland dealer, Geoff Perkins from Geoff Perkins Farm Machinery Centre, says.

One of his customers, Roger Newman of Linton Park Farms, Western Australia recently purchased a CR9090 after experiencing how well his current CR9070 performed during harvest.

"We operate in hilly country and the CR performs well with the twin rotors ability to fill the whole sieve area, together with the self-levelling shoe, which avoids just one side of the sieve being loaded up," he says. "I believe the twin-rotor concept assists grain quality and quantity. We manage to get 24-25 tonnes of canola per hour with a 40’ front."

Like many property owners Newman and his family don’t have a great deal of spare time to monitor the conditions and after-effects of harvest but in simple terms believe they are getting the best from their land thanks to their CR Series combine.

"While we know our grain quality is good we don’t measure the physical grain loss except to say when the sheep go over the chaff cart stacks it is virtually undisturbed due to no grain content which speaks for itself. We also experience very little regrowth due to machine grain loss," he says.

Long days and nights in the paddock means operator comfort is paramount during the long hours of harvest. The ergonomic design of the CR Series combine cab ensure it not only looks good but is functional in design as well as offering operators all the creature comforts you’d expect from a class leading combine.

The layout and cab design were two key features that drew Newman to the CR Series. "It offers a perfect view of the entire header and I like the feel of the controls and the positive button response time," he says.

The other drawcard to purchase another New Holland CR combine was Newman’s strong relationship with Geoff Perkins Farm Machinery at Narrogin. Perkins and his team have a very strong reputation within the local community and are well known for their level of knowledge and technical expertise.

When it comes to making large-scale purchases like a combine customers like to know they not only have the support of their local dealer and are working with someone who understands their business and its needs as well.

"I rely on my relationship with Geoff Perkins from Geoff Perkins Farm Machinery Centre to help me establish the term of the lease based on the hours the machine will do each season the and the trade in value at the end.

"By financing my machine through an operating lease I am able to retain working capital for other farm improvements," he says.

Fitted with the latest ECOBlue selective catalytic reduction system used to meet Tier 4A emissions standards and boasting a Cursor 13 engine the CR9090 series combine, Newman has purchased offers industry leading technology with enough power to meet the most demanding conditions, while offering significantly reduce fuel consumption.

"The CR harvester performs well and I am happy with its harvest ability and the support from Geoff Perkins. This will be my fourth New Holland combine the first was a CX and I am looking forward to taking delivery of my third CR a new CR9090 later this year," he says.
