New Holland’s new flagship FR920 Forage Cruiser on show at LAMMA 2018

New Holland Agriculture’s new flagship model the FR920 which extends its forage cruiser range encompasses high capacity and productivity, which the company says comes from its powerful new engine, improved feeding, and HydroLoc™ technology.

A choice of three ranges of crop processors, all available in different roll configurations, covers every requirement from Biogas applications to shredded silage. This big forage harvesting performance comes with outstanding operator comfort.

Lars Skjoldager Sørensen, Head of Harvesting Product Line, said: “New Holland has been at the forefront of forage harvesting for more than half a century. Over the years we have introduced a host of pioneering innovations and industry firsts. Today, with the new flagship FR920, we are offering forage harvesting on the largest scale combined with excellent durability resulting from the new heavy-duty drives and processors. The FR920’s productivity and best-in-class chop quality comes with outstanding Total Cost of Ownership.”

This new flagship model features the all-new FPT Industrial V20 engine developed for forage harvesting applications. It delivers a 670 kW (911 hp) maximum power at 1600 to 1800 rpm, 4,095 Nm maximum torque and a productivity-boosting 44% torque rise at 2100-1600 rpm.

The power curve specifically mapped to match the precise requirements of foraging applications ensures the best transient response, so that the FR reacts fast to changing load. The V20 engine delivers a fuel-efficient performance in the 1600 to 1900 rpm working range. This, together with the low maintenance costs, which results in the machine’s excellent Total Cost of Operation.

The overall feeding system has been improved and now features a 12.5% bigger intake channel thanks to higher lifting potential of the intake rolls delivering ultimate capacity at any given condition.
