The New Holland CR10.90 combine harvester including the Twin Pitch Rotor system and Dynamic Feed Roll.

The first combine harvester to enter the class 10 segment in the world, the CR10.90 is the culmination of 40 years of the company’s Twin Rotor technology.

New Holland says the new model will deliver up to 15 per cent more productivity in small grains combined with grain crackage as low as 0.2 per cent.

It offers the best of New Holland’s harvesting technologies including the Twin Pitch Rotor system, Dynamic Feed Roll, SmartTrax rubber tracks with Terraglide suspension and Hi-eSCR engine technology.

Equipped with the Diesel Engine Of The Year 2014, the Cursor 16 engine, the new CR10.90 offers a massive 652hp and Common Rail technology for precise fuelling and responsiveness.

New Holland Australia Brand Leader Simon Vigour says the company is always improving and refining its Twin Rotor technology, which is designed for high capacity harvesting.

"The new Dynamic Feed Roll on-the-go mechanical stone protection system further raises the CR10.90’s massive capacity by feeding the rotors faster and more smoothly while removing stones with no stopping or hesitation," Vigour says. 

"The serrated blades on the roll are gentle on the crop, maintaining high-quality straw. This is achieved with no additional power consumption, resulting in higher capacity."

Vigour says CR combines work seamlessly in variable crop conditions with the Twin-Pitch rotors, which can raise productivity by up to 10 per cent in damp conditions.

"Switching between small grain and corn configurations to rice is easy," he says.

"The redesigned adjustable rotor vanes require less power in high volume crops and consistently deliver high quality straw."

SmartTrax™ rubber tracks with the Terraglide™ suspension system ensure excellent traction and low soil compaction while providing a silky smooth ride.

Vigour adds the CR’s grain tank capacity of 14,500 litres combined with an unloading speed of up to 142 litres per second will allow the predicted productivity increases of 15 per cent.

"The extra-long 10-meter folding unloading auger on the flagship model is a match for the largest headers and tallest trailers," he says.

The brand new 3.7 m3Harvest Suite Ultra cab is larger and offers more glass area than previous models.

Designed in consultation with customers, the new Harvest Suite Ultra cab is larger than its predecessor, and the interior layout has been entirely redesigned to further improve ergonomics and comfort.

"The new force-based CommandGrip™ multifunction handle is intuitive to use and makes it easy to fine tune harvesting speed to optimise performance," Vigour says. "The new harvesting console is designed to become an extension of the operator."

The new cab also features more glass than previous models. The 6.3 m2 of glazed area, together with the floor sloping down into the front windscreen, provide excellent visibility all round and a clear view of the edge of the header.

Standard on the CR10.90 for Australia will be both HID and LED packages, with an exceptional long far distance working lights offering up to 500m visibility.
