New forage harvesters, mower conditioners, headers and loaders represent latest round of products.
There's more? In February, New Holland unveiled almost 20 new models of combines, tractors and hay tools. (See March issue, page 30.) Recently it introduced more than a dozen additional models.
The new 414-hp FX38 picks up the middle horsepower range of the company's line of self-propelled forage harvesters, which also includes the 346-hp FX28 and 525-hp FX58. It features an extra-wide 30-in. cutterhead with beveled and reversible knives for high-capacity cutting and efficient chopping.
Two new models of pull-type forage harvesters offer more capacity than previous models to meet the requirements of higher horsepower users. Model FP230 (24,170 dollars to 36,899 dollars) is designed for use with a maximum tractor PTO hp of 225, and model FP240 (31,603 dollars to 42,397 dollars) is meant to be used with a maximum tractor PTO hp of 300. Both have a 1,000-rpm driveline.
To match the capacity of these pull-type forage harvesters, the company introduces three new cropheads. Models 27P (4,919 dollars to 6,013 dollars) and 29P (7,305 dollars) windrow pickup heads measure 6 ft. 4 in. and 7 ft. 8 in. A new row-crop head, model 3PN (12,765 dollars), provides straight-line feeding, a uniform length of cut and more capacity than previous models.
Two new 12-disc Discbine mower-conditioners, the largest in New Holland's six-model lineup, provide an extra-wide 15-ft. 7-in. cut for fast production capacity. Model 1441 (32,146 dollars) features roll conditioning, and model 1442 (31,212 dollars) features flail conditioning. Both come standard with a center-pivot tongue and swivel hitch for maneuverability.
Get efficient cutting and smooth feeding when swathing grains, cereals and specialty crops with new models 994S Grain Belt draper headers (12,056 dollars to 14,206 dollars) for use with New Holland self-propelled wind-rowers. T hey fit the current HW series of New Holland Speedrowers and previous models 2450 and 2550.
Finally, make quick work of big jobs with two new mid-mount loaders. Model 32LA (3,670 dollars to 4,720 dollars) fits New Holland TND tractors, and model 33LA (3,670 dollars to 4,720 dollars) fits New Holland TNS tractors. Both feature a low, narrow profile for visibility, and the mid-mount design allows for complete turning.
