Forage Harvester

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 revolutionised the way you forage today. Owners will be spoilt for choice

in the five model range with powers ranging from 450hp(CV) right up to the mighty 824hp(CV) of the flagship

FR850 model. Industry leading chopping performance has been married to outstanding operator comfort in

the form of the IntelliView™ IV monitor. Significantly improved capacity and productivity result from better crop

flow, which are all wrapped up in a sleek and tapered design which has New Holland written all over it.
