The MowMaxII modular cutterbar features larger discs with larger, heavier gears, bearings and interconnecting shafts. The design also features individually sealed disc drive modules so if the mower hits an obstruction the damage is isolated and contained in that module. ShockPRO disc drive hubs absorb the impact before damage to drive components can occur.
A new biomass kit is available working in energy crops like corn stover. Among other features, it includes extra-high skid shoes.
Three new models of the New Holland Speedrower self-propelled windrower will soon be available as well. They include the Speedrower130 with 4 cylinder engine rated at 126 h.p., the Speedrower 200 with 6 cylinder engine rated at 190 h.p. and the Speedrower 240 with 6 cylinder engine rated at 226 h.p.
All have integrated, factory-installed IntelliSteer auto guidance which can provide cutting accuracies from +/- 1 inch to 8 inches. Guidance and steering are both controlled hydraulically so there is no delay in response due to wires, electronics and steering linkages.
New Holland introduced the T5 Series line of utility tractors earlier this year. They have now been upgraded to appeal even more to dairy, livestock and mixed farmers with the addition of the Electro Command semi-powershift transmission. Two models are available: a T5.5 105 and T5.115, which offer 106 and 114 h.p. respectively.
The Electro Command semi-powershift transmission is an optimized version of the transmission that's currently fitted to New Holland's T6 tractors. This transmission features sixteen forward and reverse gears, and enables operators to select up to eight gears via up or downshift buttons on the dedicated transmission lever without physically moving it.
