New Holland Agriculture launches the CH CROSSOVER HARVESTING combines

New Holland Agriculture is launching the CH7.70 combine, which introduces a brand-new, Crossover Harvesting™ concept that brings together Twin Rotor® separation technology with the brand’s renowned conventional threshing technology.

New Holland Agriculture claim 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 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.

Carlo Lambro, New Holland Brand President, concluded: “New Holland revolutionised the way farmers harvested over 45 years ago. Today, with the launch of the new CH Crossover Harvesting combine, it confirms its global harvesting leadership.

“Our brand offers a wide choice of technologies capable of meeting the specific requirements of every farming operation with solutions focused on innovation, sustainability, and outstanding cost efficiency.”

This new Crossover technology delivers up to 25% 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.

The CH7.70 can be equipped with a range of Varifeed™ headers of up to 9.15 metres, including a brand-new 8.53-metre Varifeed version specifically developed for this range. The front face of the feeder housing can be mechanically adjusted to ensure perfect alignment with the header, thereby optimizing the angle for each different header to deliver smoother, laminar crop flow for increased throughput and ensure the best flow whatever the crop.

The CH7.70 features the proven Cursor 9 engine that develops 374hp – 34hp more than the CX6.90 – to deliver a consistently powerful and fuel-efficient performance in all conditions. It complies with Stage V emissions standards with the patented HI-eSCR 2 technology developed by FPT Industrial. The CH combine has been designed to deliver easy maintenance: only four greasing points make daily maintenance even quicker and the large service door on top of the straw hood door provides easy access”. This maintenance-free after-treatment system, together with the exceptionally low fuel consumption, results in extremely low operating costs.

In addition, the standard three-year extended warranty (1200 engine hours) covering the engine, driveline and after-treatment system, together with the long, 600-hour service intervals, further contributes to the combine’s low operating costs. This testifies the brand’s confidence in the superior quality of its flagship combines and its commitment to meeting its customers’ demand for a clear Total Cost of Ownership of their equipment.
