 New Holland‘s CR8.90 combine has set a new World Record.  In just eight hours a total of 16, 157 bushels of soybeans were harvested in the Bahia State of Brazil.

“Setting the world record for harvesting 16,157 bushels of soybeans is an achievement we’re very proud of and it demonstrates the power and productivity of the CR8.90”, stated Dan Valen, Director of Product Marketing North America. “Similar to the CR10.90 smashing the World Record for wheat harvesting in 2014, the CR8.90 delivered an exceptional performance in setting this record. Both of these accomplishments reinforce the New Holland CR Series and Twin Rotor™ technology as best-in-class, worldwide.”

The record was set on April 5, 2017 on the Villa Panambi farm.  Three quarters of an inch of rain had fallen that morning, making moisture high, while the temperature ranged from 77 to 82.4 degreed Fahrenheit.  Between 10:30 am and 5:30 pm, 222 acres (90 hectares) were put through the CR8.90, averaging 2,020 bushels/hour and 72.6 bushels/A of beans.  You can watch the feat on YouTube.
