Opti-Speed™ variable strawwalker speed technology for New Holland CX Series combines, beginning with Model Year 2014, delivers productivity improvements of up to 10% in corn and up to 25% in wheat by automatically matching the strawwalker speed to the crop type and harvesting conditions on flat or hilly ground. The operator selects the crop to be harvested on the in-cab IntelliView™ IV display, and Opti-Speed™ constantly regulates the strawwalker speed for that crop by reading the slope.
The SmartTrax™ system with Terraglide™ suspension for New Holland CR Series combines is a track system that follows the contour of fields or roads using rollers that adjust side to side as well as up and down for maximum traction, less soil compaction, and greater driver comfort. The triangular structure of SmartTrax™ is designed to reduce ground pressure by up to 60%, when compared to wheeled machines, and to improve stability while maintaining the maneuverability of traction-tired combines.
The ECOBlue™ HI-eSCR exhaust gas after-treatment system, developed by FPT Industrial, ensures that the high-horsepower New Holland T7, T8, and T9 Series tractors are Tier 4B-compliant* while maintaining efficiency and productivity. The ECOBlue™ HI-eSCR system is an evolution of the existing ECOBlue™ SCR system and is protected by eight patents. This system has the highest NOx conversion efficiency in the industry—above 95%—while maintaining or improving the productivity of the machine. The new engine control unit manages both the engine and the HI-eSCR after-treatment system by predicting the DEF/AdBlue injection rate for the dosing module.
