New Holland's two new combine headers match the capacity and productivity
of both the new CR9000 Series Twin Rotor combines and CX8000 Series
Super Conventional combines. The 74C flexible cutterbar header
is available in three cutting widths, including a new 35 foot
width. Each is equipped with a twin knife drive. The 74C offers
a choice of 1.5 inch knives and guards (twin cut) or 3.0 inch
knives and guards. It also provides up to 4.5 inches of float
and closely follows the ground contour to pick up low-growing
crops. The New Holland Terrain Tracer header flotation system
is standard equipment.
Terrain Tracer follows the ground contour in rough, uneven fields.
It automatically tilts the header laterally to follow the ground
contour and raises the head vertically. If the combine dips into
a gully one wheel at a time or crosses a deep tire track, the
header remains on the ground to get all the grain. Terrain Tracer
is offered for all New Holland direct cut, auger type headers
and corn heads.
The 99C corn head gets under downed corn, picks it up and takes
in less trash for more combine capacity. It is available in eight
row rigid, eight row folding and 12 row rigid configurations.
The divider snouts are constructed of smooth, durable polyethylene.
The slippery surface of the shields, fenders and points allow
for smooth, fast feeding so the operator can work at increased
ground speed. The polyethylene construction also absorbs impact
so ears do not bounce out of the corn head.
The 99C corn head features heavy-duty cast iron row unit gearboxes
to drive and support the stalk rolls. The stalk rolls are heat
treated and straight fluted, knife rolls are more aggressive feeding
than a tapered stalked roll.
The shields on the 99C corn head flip up and out of the way for
complete servicing and easy transport. It is also easy to adjust
the height of the points without tools.
