NEW HOLLAND, Penn.-A number of enhancements to Model Year 2009 CR9000 Series Combines are to increase productivity and operator convenience.
There are four models in the line, including North America's largest combine, the CR9080. All are approved for B100 biodiesel usage that meets ASTM 6751 fuel quality standards.
Increased Engine Power
The CR9070 combine's New Holland Cursor 10 engine and the CR9060 combine's Cursor 9 engine will increase in power over the 2008 models.
The CR9070's engine will produce 420 hp at rated rpm (2100 rpm). A steep power rise curve will produce another 43 hp at 2000 rpm, giving the CR9070 a maximum power of 463 hp.
The CR9060 combine's New Holland Cursor 9 engine will produce 360 hp at rated rpm (2100 rpm). Using the steep power rise curve, it will produce another 55 hp at 2000 rpm, giving the CR9060 a maximum power of 415 hp.
New Standard Features
All 2009 CR9000 engines have a new sensor in the fuel filter housing to detect fuel filter blockages. A new battery disconnect switch at the battery site has been added as standard equipment. This switch can be used when storing the machine to prevent battery discharge.
The unload tube boot on Model Year 2009 CR combines has been redesigned to reduce the discharge auger height and improve the discharge pattern for faster unloading. The unload tube is now available in 18 ft., 21 ft. and 24 ft. lengths.
A shield has been added to the outside of the rear cab window to prevent dirt from entering the cab. The shield deflects falling material away from the cab when the window is opened to be cleaned.
