New Holland introduces new features on CX combine range

The CX7/8 and CR flagship combines are now available with the new, award-winning Everest Sidehill and Everest Integral compensation system.

Models featuring this innovative system are engineered to counteract lateral slopes of up to 20% on all range.. Everest integral can counteract longitudinal slope up to 32% It keeps the threshing, separation and cleaning system perfectly level to offer high performance in side hills. The straw elevator entry section maintains optimal feeding on the steepest slopes. This, together with the level grain tank filling means that the combine’s performance is the same on the slope as it would be on ground level. The Everest Sidehill system can work in combination with a self-levelling cleaning shoe to deliver 100% efficiency on slopes of up to 30%.

The CX and CR combines featuring the Everest Sidehill system were awarded the “Machine of the Year” title at the SIMA 2017 for their benefits in terms of harvesting productivity and efficiency for customers who are working in challenging conditions. This innovative system was also recognised by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers with an AE50 award.

New IntelliSteer-Lite™ automatic steering system for CX5 and CX6 delivers record-breaking accuracy and return on investment

The CX5 and CX6 are now available with the new IntelliSteer-Lite™ factory fitted automatic steering system. It enables the operator to work at a higher forward speed, reducing the time needed to complete the job. The system’s accuracy also results in lower fuel consumption due to increased efficiency and less overlapping, maximising the customer’s return on investment. The operator benefits from lower levels of stress, as they can focus on the combine’s performance rather than steering. A further advantage of the new IntelliSteer-Lite system is that it can be moved to a tractor after the harvest season.

New ECOBlue™ HI-eSCR 2 Stage V technology on CX8.80 and CX8.90 delivers clean performance and more power

The CX8.80 and CX8.90 now comply with Stage V emissions standards, which mandate a further 40% reduction of Particulate Matter content compared to previous Stage IV regulation. They achieve the new emission limits with the NEF 6 and Cursor 9 engines and the new HI-eSCR2 technology developed by FPT Industrial. This innovative after-treatment system is a maintenance-free, patented solution that minimizes operating costs. The Cursor 9 engines feature a simple layout and are EGR-free, thus granting extreme productivity and reliability.

With the new Stage V set up, the flagship models at the top of the range become even more powerful, with the CX8.80 benefitting from a 14 hp increase in maximum power – to 305 kW (415 hp).
