New Holland launched several new implements at the SIMA 2019 exhibition in Paris, extending its hay and forage range to offer customers a wider choice.

The first of these models will arrive in New Zealand in time for spring 2019.

“The addition of mowers, tedders and rakes completes our forage tools offering already headlined by the NH balers and FR foragers,” said New Holland brand manager Rod Gardner.

The new additions include a wide choice of front- and rear mounted mowers, plus offset and centre-pulled trailed versions, mounted and trailed tedders and side and central delivery rakes. 

A plain disc mower line-up has also been extended with three entry-level DuraDisc mowers in working widths from 2.0m to 2.8m, said to be simple to operate and maintain, while delivering high performance.

The Mega Cutter triple mower has adjustable working widths from 8.4m to 8.6m for high output. These are aimed at farmers and contractors who need to keep ahead of high output large balers and forage harvesters.

Both ranges are complemented by the offset, front and trailed DiscCutter mowers.

For operators looking to dry mown grass for hay or high dry matter silage, three new entry ProTed tedders are on offer, as are five ProRotor rakes in single rotor and twin rotor layouts.

Plans are in place for a nationwide roadshow.
