New Holland, a Brand of CNH Industrial, has displayed its high-efficiency forage harvester and new high horsepower tractors at the 2022 China Dairy Exhibition held in Jinan, Shandong province.
The New Holland machines on display are perfectly suited to the Chinese dairy industry and demonstrate the Brand’s leadership in mechanized solutions for forage, silage, and straw.
Edward Tsui, CNH Industrial Marketing Manager of Agricultural Machinery in China, said the dairy exhibition gave New Holland the opportunity to showcase its long history in the industry, while being involved in discussions with industry experts to help shape the industry’s future.
Quality and efficiency at forefront of FR forage harvester design
“We are committed to developing the forage planting and dairy farming industry in China,” Mr Tsui said. “Since 1961, when the first self-propelled forage harvester was operated in corn fields for dairy farms, New Holland has led the forage industry.”
“Our machinery is designed to provide the best cutting quality, engine efficiency and increased uptime to deliver the best return on investment.”
The New Holland FR forage harvester features the widest chop channel components on the market, from feedrolls to spout flipper, so the crop mat is thinner and better controlled. This allows precision chopping and thorough processing to make the highest quality feed possible.
“We know productivity is crucial when it comes to forage harvesters,” Mr Tsui said, “that’s why our engineers have put a real focus on improving engine efficiency in our new FR forage harvester.”
“The engine efficiency management ECO function delivers optimal operating efficiency and performance.”
Service points on the New Holland FR forage harvester are easy to access, while maintenance intervals are extended, meaning less downtime and more time that can be spent productively in the field.
“Regular maintenance operations are so simple on this machine that it’s possible for a single operator to change the processor from the corn to grass setting without the need for any tools, in less than two minutes,” Mr Tsui said. “This is perfect for when you’re in the middle of harvesting and need to get the most from every minute of your day.”
T2204 with China IV compliant engine and improved driving experience
The New Holland T2204 tractor features a highly efficient FPT NEF engine with second-generation selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology, fully meeting China IV emission standards. The tractor does not require exhaust gas recirculation (EGR).
The tractor features a PTO and the main pump with a hydraulic flow of up to 120 liters/min as standard.
“Works can be completed precisely with land management functions, power reversing, and automatic gear shift,” Mr Tsui said. “The machine is enhanced by advanced traction management, automatic four-wheel drive and differential lock, and adjustable wheelbase.”
“New LED headlights and low-noise driver’s cab improve the driving experience.”
New Holland contributes to constant improvement of the industry
To stimulate constant improvement of the industry, 17 special forums were held during the exhibition, with many experts participating. All aspects of China’s dairy industry development plan and the new areas of research were discussed.
As a leader in agricultural machinery solutions, New Holland offers a wide range of equipment that is suitable for seedbed preparation, forage cultivation and processing, silage harvesting, and power traction.
“Company staff had an opportunity to discuss and learn from the experts and the dairy users during these forums,” Mr Tsui said. “New Holland will continue to be a part of developing a new chapter for the dairy industry.”
