World’s most powerful combine
The CR10.90 from New Holland Agriculture’s CR Series of combine harvesters has set a record for the global farming industry as the world’s most powerful, with 486kW.
 
A combine harvester is used for harvesting crops, built to literally “combine” the reaping and threshing processes. Built at New Holland Agriculture’s Centre of Harvesting Excellence in Zedelgem, Belgium, it has up to 15 percent higher productivity than the brand’s previous highest capacity model.
 
When compared with what was considered a high capacity combine a decade ago, this new machine has more than 25 percent more productivity, thanks to advances in harvesting and engine technology.
 
The CR10.90 is the most powerful on the market thanks to its Engine of the Year 2014, Cursor 16 engine (with EcoBlue HI-eSCR technology for Tier 4B compliance), from FPT Industrial, CNHIndustrial’s powertrain brand.
 
It is equipped with Twin Rotor technology, pioneered 40 years ago by New Holland, delivering efficiency, capacity and grain quality. The combine’s larger, 14,500-litre grain tank allows for more time between unloading, and can be emptied in less than two minutes, which is theequivalent of emptying approximately 140 baths in the same time.
 
The larger Harvest Suite Ultra Cab improves operator comfort and provides excellent visibility while harvesting.
