New Holland’s CR 9.90 kept the booth busy at Agri-Trade held at Red Deer, Alta., earlier this month.
The CR Series features a number of enhancements for 2020, including, for the CR 9.90, a Cursor 13 engine, and an upgrade of up to 600 horsepower.
“Power can be translated in capacity in the field, but not only that, it’s important we have also other features to match this additional capacity,” says Luiz Miotto, combine product marketing manager for New Holland, North America.
Those other features include an enhanced clean grain elevator, new cab colour, and improvements in emissions.
“For the 2020 series, we are introducing the Stage V — it’s the latest rule to manage the agriculture equipment emissions in Europe, and since this combine comes from Europe, it also comes with the latest technology.”
Building on its work with IntelliSense, the CR Series will also see an addition to its supported crop types.
“For the model year ’20, we added barley as a supported crop, together with soybean, corn, canola and wheat,” says Miotto, adding the system determines automatically which settings need to be adjusted to improve grain sample and reduce losses, while also providing high capacity throughout the day.
“And altogether, according to our tests…(the pre-programmed settings) can deliver up to 20 per cent more capacity during the day, compared to a driver that doesn’t have too much experience.”
Miotto says the technology offers a guaranteed maximum return on investment, but also the peace of mind of knowing a fleet is delivering the maximum capacity possible.
