New Holland Launches The World's Most Powerful Combine

The CR10.90 from New Holland Agriculture’s CR Series of combine harvesters sets a record for the global farming industry. This is the latest development to emerge from CNH Industrial’s activity in the field of innovative agricultural equipment.

New Holland Launches The World's Most Powerful Combine Harvester

New Holland Agriculture has achieved a product milestone with the introduction of its new CR10.90 combine harvester, now the world’s most powerful with 652 horsepower.

The CR10.90 is built at New Holland Agriculture’s Centre of Harvesting Excellence in Zedelgem, Belgium. It has up to 15% higher productivity than the brand’s previous highest capacity model, which was already at the top of the field, and when compared with what was considered a high capacity combine a decade ago, this new machine has over 25% more productivity, thanks to advances in harvesting and engine technology.
With over 170 years of experience in farming equipment, New Holland’s product innovation and expertise in the agricultural sector provide farmers and agribusinesses with efficient, sustainable and profit-generating technologies. This latest success in the field is further confirmation of the company’s dedication to agriculture worldwide. The new features that have gone into the world’s most powerful combine harvester confirm New Holland’s commitment to sustainable agriculture as well as its efforts to maximise the efficiency of cultivated land to ensure continuous growth and development.
The CR10.90 is the most powerful on the market thanks to its Engine of the Year 2014, Cursor® 16 engine (with ECOBlue™ HI-eSCR technology for Tier 4B compliance) from FPT Industrial, New Holland’s powertrain brand. It is equipped with Twin Rotor® technology, pioneered 40 years ago by New Holland, delivering efficiency, capacity and grain quality. The combine’s larger, 14,500 litre grain tank allows for more time between unloading and can be emptied in under two minutes, which is the equivalent of emptying approximately 140 baths in the same time. The larger Harvest Suite™ Ultra Cab improves operator comfort and provides excellent visibility while harvesting.
Through its global Research and Development operations and agricultural machinery brands, New Holland’s parent company CNH Industrial has dedicated significant resources to providing the appropriate means to increase actual and potential soil productivity. An excellent example of this is the SmartTrax™ rubber tracks with Terraglide™ suspension technology, standard on this model, which reduces soil compaction resulting in less damage to soil and higher yields for the future. 
Also with regards to increasing soil productivity, one of the company’s main areas of focus is Precision Agriculture Technology, which is widely recognised as the most efficient driver towards sustainable agriculture. New Holland’s IntelliSteer™ fully integrated autoguidance solution and PLM Connect™ telematics system are both available on the CR10.90. These technologies provide auto guidance capabilities to map fields to harvest in the most efficient manner and to analyse harvesting data to enable a future improvement of yields.  
40th Anniversary of New Holland Twin Rotor® combines 
Twin Rotor combine technology began in Lexington, Nebraska in 1975 where the very first combine to boast the then-revolutionary rotary technology rolled off the production line. 
Hailed for its success in significantly improving the traditional method of threshing grain, the New Holland Twin Rotor system used centrifugal force to separate the grain. This system reduced crop damage and losses while improving harvesting speed and capacity. 
Now, almost 40 years later, after an unrelenting process of refinement and innovation, the ninth generation of Twin Rotor combines is carrying on this legacy. Twin Rotor combines continue to offer farmers superior performance and the best grain quality. 
New Holland is continuing to apply new concepts and technologies to the Twin Rotor combine, ushering in the newest models, which raise harvesting to a whole new level with greater productivity and grain crackage as low as 0.2%. The series is topped by the CR10.90 Elevation, the most powerful Twin Rotor combine model ever, with a massive 14,500 litre grain tank and 652 horsepower engine.
