New Holland FR780

New 2017 FR780 self-propelled forage harvester.


Equipment Description

New Holland has been at the forefront of the forage harvesting sector for over half a century with a whole host of pioneering industry firsts that have revolutionized the way you harvest today, including the first ever self-propelled forage harvester! New Holland married industry-leading chopping performance to outstanding operator comfort and added superior control with the Intellivew IV monitor. Significantly improved capacity and productivity result from better crop flow and new engines. All this is wrapped up in a sleek, tapered design which has New Holland written all over it. Learn more about the New Holland FR780 below and check out the attached literature.

Key Features:

  • Ultimate Capacity – New Holland knows that throughput is king where forage harvesters are concerned, and that you measure in tons per hour. The largest cutterhead in the business offers exceptionally high levels of inertia, and when combined with lots of cutting space, throughput and accuracy are guaranteed.
  • Superior Harvest Quality – The industry’s widest crop channel from feedrolls to spout flipper means a thin, controlled crop mat for best-in-class chop quality. HydroLoc feedroll drive technology guarantees constant chop length independent of throughput and crop type. When combined with uniform kernel cracking from the most efficient crop processor around, you’ve got the ingredients for chopping the highest quality cattle feed.
  • Lower Operating Costs – Thanks to the new Tier 4B engines with Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) and HI-eSCR technology, fuel consumption is optimized and reduced from previous model engines. Also, Advanced MetaLoc technology protects your FR from damaging metal. Lastly, the patented Variflow system can be changed from corn to hay position in under 2 minutes without the need for tools, saving you time and earning you money.
  • Absolute Driving Pleasure – Skilled forage harvester operators are hard to find. The FR offers a first-class operating environment to make them want to stay. A new armrest of ergonomic excellence combined with the ultra-wide Intelliview 4 color touchscreen monitor keeps all operating parameters at your fingertips.
