New Holland combine product manager ANZ Marc Smith says the new CR combine harvester is the most powerful combine available.

"The CR combine already holds the world record for harvesting; it’s the most powerful combine in the market with the highest capacity," Smith says. "But at New Holland we are constantly look for ways to improve our customers’ productivity and profitability.

"With the new CR Revelation range we have achieved this, the control of crop flow has been improved, assisting our customers increase their productivity; we increased capacity and residue management performance. And with the new styling we improved visibility and serviceability."

The world’s most powerful combine (CR10.90) has also received a further 50hp power upgrade, making it the biggest combine in the industry with a total of 700hp according to the company.

The new New Holland CR combines have a host of features to increase the machines’ already high capacity and productivity even further, while maintaining the remarkably low grain crackage or reducing it.

The new cab-controlled remote adjustable rotor vanes result in increased crop flow control and power efficiency gains. New Holland says this feature, offered standard on all 22-inch models at the top of the range, delivers higher productivity and capacity.

Other features include the optional Twin Pitch Plus rotors with 3-inch raspbars, which deliver power efficiency gains ranging from 20kW in the CR8.90 to 28kW in the top-of-the-range CR10.90.

A redesigned chaff spreader is also a stand out feature of the new Combine range.

"The chaff spreader has been entirely redesigned with a patented air crop flow system replacing the traditional impact based design," New Holland says. "The spreading width has been increased to 45 feet and is adjustable from the cab.

"The powerful Opti-Spread straw management system is further improved with 25% stronger hydromotors, V-shaped paddles and cleaning scrapers, the result is a wider, 45-foot spread, better spread distribution and reduced wear," the company says.
