The brand new Harvest Suite™ Ultra cab is larger and offers more glass than previous models. The six model series is topped by the CR10.90 Elevation, the most powerful CR model ever, and the highest capacity in the industry that delivers outstanding performance.

“The new CR Series is the culmination of 40 years of Twin Rotor® technology,” stated Dan Valen, New Holland North America Cash Crop Equipment Segment Manager. “It offers the best of New Holland’s smart harvesting technologies: Twin Pitch rotors, Dynamic Feed Roll™, SmartTrax™ rubber tracks, Tier 4B ECOBlue™ Hi-eSCR engine technologies – all working together to allow producers to harvest in a new dimension. All this is coupled with the Harvest Suite Ultra cab that defines harvesting comfort. You couldn’t ask for more.”

The Dynamic Feed Roll on-the-go mechanical stone protection system further raises the CR’s massive capacity by feeding the rotors faster and more smoothly while removing stones with no stopping or hesitation. The new serrated blades on the roll are gentle on the crop, resulting in high-quality grain.

CR Series combines work seamlessly in tough crop conditions with the Twin Pitch rotors, which can raise productivity by up to 10% in damp conditions. Switching between small grain/corn configurations to harvest rice is easy. The redesigned adjustable rotor vanes require less power in high-volume crops and consistently deliver high capacity.

The SmartTrax™ rubber tracks, optional on all models, ensure excellent traction and low soil compaction while providing a silky smooth ride.
