NEW Holland Agriculture has launched the CH7.70 combine, which introduces a brand-new Crossover Harvesting concept that brings together outstanding Twin Rotor separation technology with the brand’s proven and renowned conventional threshing technology.
The new Crossover Combine sets a new benchmark in capacity for mid-range combines, delivering outstanding grain and straw quality, and is equally at home in all crops and conditions. The highly fuel-efficient engine with patented HI-eSCR 2 technology for Stage V compliance, delivers high productivity with extremely low operating costs. This performance comes with the superior comfort of the Harvest Suite Deluxe cab.
Lars Skjoldager Sørensen, Crop Harvesting Product Management Global, commented: “We designed the CH7.70 for professional arable farmers and contractors looking for a combine that delivers consistent, high performance in all conditions together with low cost of ownership.
“The new CH7.70 combine brings to our customers all the benefits of 45 years of Twin Rotor separation excellence combined with our best threshing technology – best-in-class productivity, top grain and straw quality, crop-to-crop versatility and reliability with low operating costs. This unique concept heralds the new era of Crossover Harvesting by New Holland.”
Lionel Gleyroux, Combines and New Holland Flagship Europe, stated: “The new Crossover combine creates a new segment in New Holland’s wide offering, between mid-range conventional and flagship rotary models, further extending the choice of solutions for our customers, capable of meeting the specific needs of all types of farming operations.
“The new Crossover Harvesting concept takes the best of our harvesting expertise to create the opportunity for every farmer and contractor to be more productive, versatile and effective. It offers the best of both worlds – New Holland’s best Twin Rotor and conventional technologies – to deliver segment-leading throughput.”
“With the new Crossover Harvesting concept, our customers just get more: more productivity, more quality, more savings. The new CH combines proudly bear the Crossover Harvesting logo on their livery to signal the revolution they introduce under the hood,” he added.
This new Crossover technology delivers up to 25 per cent higher throughput than a conventional combine in this segment. The two-drum threshing system features a 600mm diameter drum – the largest in the segment – with reinforced, heavy-duty design to deliver outstanding threshing performance. The large drum combined with the user-friendly sectional concave, offers the best match in terms of versatility, enabling fast adaptation to different crops, in less than 20 minutes.
Drum speed is controlled from the cab by a new heavy-duty hydraulic drum variator, so that the operator can easily ensure the speed is perfectly matched to the crop and field conditions.
The threshing system is combined with proven New Holland Opti-Thresh system, which adapts to crop conditions and maturity simply by repositioning the rear part of the concave – no tools are needed. When the hinged top section is moved away from the drum, the rubbing action is gentler, improving straw quality.
The CH7.70 combines this high-capacity two-drum system with New Holland’s proven Twin Rotor concept to deliver the Crossover Harvesting experience. Over 45 years, since it was first introduced, it delivers the most efficient and gentle threshing system on the market while reducing broken grains.
The specially designed 21-inch, 3.45-metre-long Twin Rotor system provides the largest separation area in the segment, at some 2.9 m2, and is a perfect match to the CH7.70’s mission.
