New Holland has further extended its line-up of equipment with Tier 4A engines with the addition of five new CR Series Twin Rotor combines and three new CX8000 Series Super Conventional combines equipped with ECOBlue Selective Catalytic Reduction engine technology. 

As a result, New Holland offers the largest range of Tier 4A compliant products in the industry with 20 tractors in the over 100-hp T7, T8 and T9 Series range and eight combines available in North America. 

New Holland's Tier 4A engines offer improved power, performance and reduced fuel consumption thanks to ECOBlue SCR engine technology.

New Holland has introduced an industry first: a choice between two different forms of stone protection. For producers working in extremely stony conditions, Dynamic Stone Protection, a mechanical stone protection system, is available as an option for New Holland CR8090 and CR9090 combines.

This system performs similarly to a stone trap in a conventional combine. It features an 18-inch diameter closed beater and stone trap module that mounts between the rotor frame and the feeder. Any stones entering the feeder are propelled into a sump below the beater.

The Dynamic Stone Protection system can improve feeding performance in heavy, damp conditions. On-the-go harvesting is guaranteed as the stone trap only needs to be emptied once a day.

The operator empties the sump by engaging a lever conveniently located to the left-hand side of the feeder. Also available across the entire CR range is New Holland's Advanced Stone Protection (ASP) System, which automatically detects and ejects stones to fully protect internal threshing elements while providing unobstructed, high-capacity feeding for optimum grain quality.

The powerful new Opti-Spread system, an option available on CR8080, CR8090 and CR9090 combines, is mounted behind the straw chopper and evenly distributes chopped straw across the full header width. It meets a wide range of spreading width requirements and can be conveniently controlled from the cab.

The optional spreader uses variable speed rotating discs and adjustable deflectors to neutralize the effects of sidewinds or sloping ground.
