The CR6.80 provides a maximum 374 hp and is designed to work with grain heads up to 30 feet wide and 8-row corn heads. Offering the same advantages of the larger models in the CR Series – capacity, productivity, less grain loss and high grain quality — the CR6.80 is for the grower who demands the smart features that New Holland combines deliver, but does not require the higher capacity of the more powerful CR models.

“The CR6.80 provides all the benefits of Twin Rotor® and other smart harvesting technology, plus the harvesting comfort of the new Harvest Suite™ Ultra cab in a package that is perfect for the customer with fewer acres,” says Dan Valen, New Holland North America Cash Crop Equipment Segment Marketing Leader. “Forty years ago, New Holland was the first in the marketplace with a rotary combine and we are still the only manufacturer with a Twin Rotor design. Now with the CR6.80 combine, smart customers with the need of a 30-foot wide grain head or 8-row corn head can enjoy the benefits the Twin Rotor delivers: highest capacity in its class, outstanding grain quality, and lowest cost of ownership.”

New Holland’s newest in the combine series provides:
– CR6.80: big combine features for mixed farming operations
– Proven technologies: Twin Rotor®, self-leveling shoe, EcoBlue™ engine
– Harvest Suite™ Ultra cab: designed for ultimate harvesting comfort
