Farm Equipment magazine has just recognized New Holland Rochester dealership with their “Best in Class” dealership award for 2014. The award is broken up into two categories, Multi-Store Operations and Small-Store Operations. Our dealership falls into their Small Store Operation category. While the judges noted our new New Holland Centerville location, our solar business, and Jim Straeter’s innovative and successful Cornrower machine as reasons why they selected us, we like to believe that it’s also our hard-working employees dedicating their time and effort to meeting our customer’s needs that makes us so successful. See the full press release below:
We will be offering up to a 20% discount on all parts orders of $1,000 or more at all of our locations Aug. 1 – Aug. 8. This will be the best time to purchase parts for harvest, so we suggest stocking up on any and all parts you may need for the season. Check out our flyer below for more details!

Abe Hughes, New Holland Vice President of New Holland Agriculture in North America visited the New Holland Tri-County dealership in Bluffton, IN on April 29.
Mr. Hughes discussed company product and marketing plans and got input on a wide range of topics dealing with markets, products, training and more.
Construction on the new shop had begun a week earlier and Mr. Hughes was given information about what we look to accomplish with our expansion at Bluffton.
Having corporate leadership come to visit and get hands-on information about the grass-root marketing matters is helpful for customers, dealers and the company and we look forward to future visits at our locations from New Holland management.

The Deere high horsepower tractors use CEGR and DEF technology to meet Tier IVb emission levels. Using two systems to accomplish what New Holland accomplishes with DEF technology only greatly increases complexity and cost for the owner throughout the life of the tractor as well as higher operating costs on fuel. The CEGR technology adds a second turbo charger (NH uses one, Deere uses compound (2) turbo chargers), a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (non on New Holland tractors), a Diesel Particulate Filter (none on New Holland tractors), and an Exhaust Gas Cooler (New Holland has none) in order to cool the recirculated air and a larger Air-To-Air Intercooler than New Holland uses because the hot recirculated air has to be cooled.
The DEF equipment on the Deere tractor has similar components as New Holland’s DEF equipment. All of the Deere CEGR equipment is ‘extra’ machinery that the New Holland owner doesn’t need to buy or maintain:
One might ask why New Holland uses CEGR technology on smaller tractors if it isn’t a good idea? Fact is, CEGR has benefits in small engine applications simply because small engines use a fraction of the air that larger tractors use and typically, smaller tractors don’t have constant high engine loads typical of high horsepower tractors’ applications. The lower combustion temperatures needed for CEGR to meet emission levels occurs more naturally in the smaller tractor.
The use of dual technologies (DEF plus CEGR) in high horsepower Deere tractors presents a huge liability for the owner throughout the life of the tractor that the New Holland single technology (DEF only) doesn’t provide to the New Holland owner. Deere points out that the DEF use will be lower because of the dual technology. While this remains to be seen in real world use, we would point out that diesel currently sells for about $4.00 per gallon whereas our Open House price on DEF was $1.39 per gallon.
Nebraska tests on Deere’s Tier IVa tractors showed higher diesel use than the New Holland Tier Iva tractors and the Deere tractors didn’t meet Deere’s advertised horsepower levels OR torque rise. See Nebraska tests 1990 and 1991 attached:
