Innovation gongs for NH

New Holland Agriculture has picked up three silver medals in the Innovation Awards at the upcoming Agritechnica, November 10 to 16 in Hanover, Germany.

NH’s industry-first driveline concept for its high density BigBaler received a silver medal. 

The medal recognises its two-speed, powershift, start-up technology which delivers smooth baler engagement. Using two-stage logic, this protects the tractor and baler drivelines and, with the baler’s much heavier, larger diameter flywheel it achieves more comfortable and efficient baling. 

The second silver medal is for innovations the brand has made to enhance its CX combine harvester range’s four-drum threshing system. The new Ultra-Flow staggered drum design smooths crop flow resulting in higher capacity, reduced blockages and less in-cab noise. 

Power requirement for threshing is said to be reduced by 16%, reducing fuel use and increasing the combine’s capacity by up to 10%. 

Baler Mode on the brand’s T7 tractor range was also recognised, as it significantly reduces the pitching motion of the tractor cab when working with large square balers. 

In operation, the tractor recognises when the baler is attached and activates Baler Mode. This acts on the tractor’s front axle suspension, adjusting stiffness in line with bale compression and reducing cab movement by up to 15% in the process. 

The system reduces variations in engine speed, leading to fuel savings of up to 12%.
