Ultimate capacity
New Holland knows that throughput is king where forage harvesters are concerned and that
owners dream in tonnes per hour. The largest, 900mm diameter, cutterhead in the business offers
exceptionally high levels of inertia, and when combined with lots of cutting space, throughput
and accuracy are guaranteed. The ECO engine management mode works to ensure the engine is
always fully loaded in relation to a preset engine speed to deliver optimal operating efficiency and
performance. Renowned Power Cruise™ features remain to ensure your FR’s voracious appetite is
satisfied in fields of varying crop density and state of the art headers that eat grass, maize, whole
crop… quite simply anything for breakfast complete the capacity picture.
Superior harvest quality
If you can guarantee unsurpassed harvest quality you’re already half way to getting lucrative silage
and biomass contracts in the bag. Patented HydroLoc™ technology guarantees constant chop length
independent of throughput and crop type. The ActiveLOC™ system automatically adapts chop length
to actual moisture content for unsurpassed quality. Automatic adjustment maintains best-in-class chop
quality, and when combined with uniform kernel cracking from the most efficient crop processor around,
you’ve got the ingredients for the highest quality cattle and the most profitable power stations.
Lower operating costs
Lower operating costs mean higher profits. The FR480 to FR780 models benefit from advanced ECOBlue™
HI-eSCR technology for Tier 4B compliance which optimises your fuel consumption. Saving you money.
For example the FR650 has 5%* increased capacity while consuming 21%* less fuel than its larger FR700
predecessor model. Increasing productivity and reducing costs. Advanced MetaLoc™ technology protects
your FR from potentially fatal metal ingress. Saving you lots of money. The patented Variflow™ system crop
processing system can be changed from maize to grass position in under 2 minutes without the need for
tools. Saving time, earning you more money. The FR: a money making machine.

History
Revolutionising forage harvesting
In 1961 New Holland revolutionised forage harvesting mechanisation: it transformed the highly successful pull type forage
harvester into the first self-propelled unit, the now legendary SP818. With this daring move, New Holland dramatically
increased in-field performance. In line with this ambitious philosophy, over the last 50 years, New Holland has introduced a
vast range of pioneering industry-firsts to improve the profitability of your forage businesses. Today, the FR Forage Cruiser
reflects New Holland’s continuous and unswerving commitment to offer products that meet your most demanding requirements.
Yellow blooded engineers at the Zedelgem Centre of Excellence
Today, over half a century after the first SP818 was designed and built in New Holland, Pennsylvania, yellow blooded
engineers based at New Holland’s Harvesting Centre of Excellence in Zedelgem, Belgium, are still committed to
developing the next generation of forage harvesters. The sophisticated product development process and the extensive
knowledge of a dedicated workforce at a World Class Manufacturing facility ensure the FR range, together with all
flagship harvesting products, the CR, CX8000 and BigBaler ranges continue to set the harvesting benchmark.

Grass headers
Leading from the front
Outstanding performance in grass
The old adage ‘you are what you eat’ has never
been more relevant than when talking about beef
cattle. In order to produce the finest and most
highly prized cattle and top quality dairy herds,
the highest quality silage with an exact nutritional
profile must be fed. In order to deliver this to
your customers, you have to harvest at exactly
the right moment. You won’t get a second
chance. With the 300FP grass pick-up you’ll get
it right first time, every time.
Efficient feeding
Enhanced reliability on uneven ground
The header can be equipped with retractable fingers
that transfer the crop into the feed rollers. Operations
which work in dense crop or with particularly long
blades of grass that pose a potential snagging risk,
can choose the optional auger paddles. Active reel
reverse is now standard and when the feeder drum
and pick-up auger are reversed, a powered reversing
action is automatically applied to the tine reel.
Reinforced pick-up tines are fitted as standard to
ensure optimum reliability when working in uneven or on
stony ground. Operating in undulating terrain has been
further facilitated thanks to the addition of a rear pickup support wheel which prevents potentially damaging
bulldozing from occurring.
A width to suit your requirements
Two working widths, which both feature five tine
bars, are available to offer tailored harvesting
performance. The three metre header is perfect
for transport intensive operations, as it does not
need to be removed for road transport, meaning
you get where you need to go even quicker.
The ultra-wide 3.8 metre variant easily
processes the widest and densest swaths, the
ideal partner for your self-propelled windrower.
Roller wind guard.
Smooth flow guaranteed.
The heavy duty roller wind guard continually
rotates to guarantee a smooth, even flow of crop
into the feed auger, eliminating any disturbances
which could lead to profitability impacting crop
losses. Furthermore, it can be fully adjusted from
the comfort of the cab for lightning-fast reaction
to swaths of changing densities.

Super-fast pick-up
Advanced header levelling control
Foraging windows can be tight. You need to collect
the crop at the right time to satisfy your customers,
as well as guaranteeing maximum throughput to
get to as many clients as possible. Maximum reel
speed and pick-up speed have been increased
for optimal pick-up feeding performance. Fields
will be cleared in the blink of an eye, testament
to the FR’s ultimate capacity.
Advanced header height control means that no matter how
uneven the terrain, uniform pick-up across the entire swath
is guaranteed. The AutoFloat™ system, which is available
on combine and maize headers, uses a combination of
sensors that ensure the header follows uneven terrain, and
automatically adjusts its position hydraulically to maintain
uniform height to the prevent the header digging into the
ground. Lateral free float technology uses two heavy-duty
springs which are built into the crop attachment frame and are
used in conjunction with pick-up headers to ensure unrivalled
ground contour following. These systems can be locked-out
for silky smooth road transport.

Maize Headers
Productive
maize harvesting
New Holland experts have developed a whole range of maize headers that have been custom
designed for the FR range. Both rigid and flip-up variants are available and ultimate fleet
flexibility is guaranteed as combine maize headers can also be fitted. Whether you’re looking
for the most nutritious silage, or the highest energy biomass maize, you’ve found you’re perfect
harvesting partner.
Small disc for early cut success
Making light work of even the tallest maize
The small disc maize header, with 650mm diameter discs has
been designed to cleanly slice and process young short crop
with flexible stems, before they have dried and hardened.
The material is transferred quickly and efficiently into the feed
rolls to prevent costly losses. The spacing between the discs
has been optimised for narrow rows and six, eight, ten and
12 row variants are available. The feeding opening is
exactly the same width as the feed rolls for smooth feeding.
For intensive maize chopping operations, the large disc
maize header is the default choice. Available in six, eight or
ten row variants, the 1350mm diameter discs scythe through
the tallest crops which have been planted in even the widest
rows. The fast turning knives draw down and intake crop
smoothly and quickly for outstanding capacity. Making
sure that the maize is harvested at precisely the right time
to unlock every last joule of energy potential.
Combining performance
for ultimate nutrition
High protein food is a key ingredient when fattening and
finishing valuable beef cattle, so when only the juiciest
cobs are required, it’s time to fit a New Holland combine
maize header. Available in 6-12 row configurations, and
in both rigid and flip-up variants, productivity and quality
are guaranteed. The stalk rollers feature four knives for
aggressive pulling down of stalks of any size and length,
and they are controlled from the comfort of the cab to ensure
constant performance when different sizes of stalk or cob are
encountered. Fast throughput and comfort guaranteed.
Header attachment
A dedicated module can be quickly and simply attached
to the front of the FR range to ensure 100% compatibility
with combine maize and grain headers. The additional
feed roll ensures efficient crop flow over the extra distance
for sustained performance and ultimate flexibility.

10 11 Whole crop and coppice headers
The energy harvest
When only the most energy rich food will do it’s time to turn to whole
crop. The addition of succulent seeds to fodder will significantly enhance
milk volume and quality as well as livestocks’ top line whilst boosting
your, and your customers’ bottom lines. But it’s not only livestock that
require energy, direct cut energy grasses such as miscanthus can
be harvested and turned into precious bio-energy. Furthermore, the
burgeoning biomass segment has a voracious appetite for short rotation
coppice that can be transformed into energy to heat your home.
New Holland Direct cut Header
The six meter direct cut header features 14 exclusive super-flat round discs for a smooth, uninterrupted crop flow,
which transmits zero stress and strain to the cutting bed, enhancing machine reliability and reducing costly down time
during tight cutting windows. The large diameter auger quickly feeds the crop into machine. The cutterbar has been
fully welded to the one-piece main frame, for increased strength and inherent stability. Moreover, when cutting tall,
high value whole crop, the flip-up cover can be elevated via hydraulic struts to prevent knocking off valuable seeds.

Best-in-class chop quality
Enjoy industry leading chop quality
with the FR Forage Cruiser
The above is a bold statement, but the FR can more than live up to
this title. Industry-leading HydroLoc™ technology ensures constant
chop length regardless of crop type and variations in load. But quality
is nothing without throughput. The FR’s voracious appetite is never
satisfied, and as fast as you can get the crop in it has been processed.
The result? The best quality silage that facilitates digestion: both in
traditional livestock stomachs and in modern biomass plants.
Uniform chopping
The 2x20 knives 780kg, high inertia cutterhead offers outstanding
chopping performance in all conditions and prevents shock-loads.
A wide range of different cutterhead configurations are available
for bespoke foraging performance. The chevron design is proven
to offer the most uniform chop. 2x8 and 2x10 configurations offer
a medium - long chop for nutritious silage. The 2x12 and 2x16
variants are perfect for whole crop and maize focused businesses;
the shorter chop aids fermentation in bio-digestors. The top of
the range 2x20 biomass cutterhead has been engineered by
design to offer the finest chop possible for ultra-fine material with
an enhanced combustion profile. This cutterhead is perfect for
coppice and the emerging maize and sugarcane stover segments.

Consistent chop length. Always.
The Industry-leading HydroLoc™ system enables you
the precisely regulate chop length via the IntelliView™ IV
monitor, on the move and from the comfort of the cab.
When the chop length is changed, the header speed
automatically adjusts to match feed roll speed; likewise,
when forward speed variations are detected, feed rollers
automatically adapt, to ensure that no bunching or gaps
occur, only smooth even crop flow.
ActiveLoc™ technology:
moisture adapted chop length
The FR now features revolutionary ActiveLOC™
technology. Real time moisture sensing is used in
combination with pre-set chop length parameters
to control the length of the chop depending on
moisture content. The result: increased clamp
density and improved silage quality for an
enhanced nutritional profile.
MetaLoc™ machine protection
The state-of-the-art MetaLoc™ metal detection system
features six detection zones which will bring the feed
rolls to a dead halt within 300 milliseconds should metal
be detected, to protect your FR and your customers’
cattle. The metal’s location will be pinpointed on
the IntelliView™ IV monitor and the power reverser
automatically flips open the pickup windguard and
reverses the auger to positively eject the crop. The
operator can even adjust the sensitivity of the system.
Adjust-O-Matic™
automatic knife sharpening
Sharp knives ensure clean, precise cutting for
maximum capacity from less power and fuel. With
New Holland patented Adjust-O-Matic™ technology,
you can easily sharpen knives and adjust the shearbar
from the comfort of the cab. The result: significantly
extended knife life and reduced shearbar wear.
14 15 Crop Processing
Ultimate processing power
The FR Forage Cruiser must keep 100% of the people happy, 100% of the
time. Customers demand ultimate crop quality. The FR delivers it thanks to
unparalleled processing performance. Contractors and cooperatives want to
change between crops in the blink of an eye to minimise unprofitable downtime.
The FR delivers it courtesy of industry-leading Variflow™ technology.
Efficient crop processing rolls
The efficient crop processing rolls utilise a proven sawtooth pattern for
aggressive processing, which means virtually all kernels are cracked,
making their nutritious fibre content even easier to digest. Available in
four configurations, with between 99 - 166 teeth, the gap between the
rolls can be calibrated using the IntelliView™ IV monitor for truly tailored
processing performance. The toughened, highly abrasive surface has
significantly enhanced durability during intensive maize harvesting.

EASY CLEANING
Variflow™ technology
The concave door can be opened via the IntelliView™ IV monitor
when the machine is stationary. This enables better access to the
concave channel for even easier cleaning. The door automatically
closes when the engine is switched on. This feature is standard
on across the range and is available as an option on the FR480.
Variflow™ system technology has streamlined the
processor to trailer crop flow, banishing stagnant
crop, when harvesting grass, to the history books.
The Variflow™ system enables the operator to alter
the position of the blower depending on the crop
being harvested. The system features one maize
and two grass settings: one for first cut, heavy
silage and the second, that virtually eliminates
the gap between the blower and the processer,
for light second and third cut silage, as it powers
these light, flyaway crops directly up the spout.
In grass-mode, the blower is situated 20cm closer
to the cutterhead and offers savings of up to 40hp
to enhance overall machine efficiency.
Heavy duty processing
All FR models can be fitted with a heavy duty processor with a
staggered tooth configuration. These twin chrome coated rolls
offers more aggressive processing for higher throughput, together
with enhanced longevity in highly abrasive conditions.
One person. Two minutes. No tools.
In under two minutes, and on your own, you can
change the Variflow™ system from its maize to
grass setting without the need for any tools. Perfect
when uttermost flexibility is of the essence in busy
harvesting periods. Furthermore, an exclusive
tensioning system ensures correct belt tension in both
positions so you don’t need worry about it. During
extended periods of silage, or when harvesting
straight through, high value wholecrop, you can
remove the crop processor in under 20 minutes
with the assistance of a dedicated winch.
16 17 Discharge
Silky smooth crop flow
Foraging is not a solo task, constant communication is required
between the operator and the tractor and trailer driver to ensure
that every last ounce of valuable crop is delivered safely to the
trailer. With over 210° of spout movement, unfettered, ‘goldfish
bowl’ cab visibility and fully automatic trailer filling, as the crop
flows out, the pounds will flow in.
Efficient headland management
The close proximity of the blower to the cutterhead means that
two seconds after the crop has flowed into the pick-up it will be
delivered into the trailer. The result? Easier headland manoeuvres,
as the trailer is not trying to capture the last remnants of the crop
dribbling out.
Exceptional 210° of spout rotation
The sleek black spout benefits from a full 210° of
rotation, which enables trailers to be filled both on the
right and left sides of the forager, and a home position
can also be selected for safe transport. The spout is
even more stable thanks to an additional support strut,
which when coupled with stronger mounting points and
additional braces enables even more precise filling. The
extra-long spout has a 6.4 metre elevation, which means
even the highest trailers can be used to reduce trips
back to the clamp for non-stop efficiency.
Cutting-edge blowing performance
The FR benefits from the latest advances in
blower design to ensure efficient crop transfer
from processor to trailer. The paddle type blower
has increased the mass of smooth flowing air by
a full 40% to transport higher volumes of crop
more efficiently. Advanced computational fluid
dynamic analysis was also conducted to establish
the smoothest and best possible path for the
crop, and an impressive value of 80% has been
achieved for crop flow direction stability. A more
stable flow means reduced turbulence and greater
unloading efficiency.
Let the FR Forage Cruiser
fill the trailer for you
Operating a forage harvester requires
extensive experience and a high level of
concentration. For maximum focus on crop
flow and field progress, the multi awardwinning 3D camera-based IntelliFill™ system
automatically detects the trailer edge and
monitors filling. Whatever the trailer size or
shape, it automatically controls the spout
movement to perfectly fill right to the trailer’s
edges without spillages.
Precision fill direction control
In order to ensure that every last nook and cranny
of the trailer are efficiently filled, a fully adjustable
330mm wide flap can be precision placed, using
the dedicated control on the CommandGrip™ multifunction handle, to accurately fine tune crop flow.

AUTOMATIC WORKING MODES for the highest work rates
The new FR Forage Cruiser has two driving modes: Power Cruise and ECO engine management, which can be selected
independently or used in conjunction with each other. Selection is based on crop conditions and operator preference.
The renowned Power Cruise™ II system automatically adapts engine and ground speed in relation to actual load for fuel
savings of up to 15%. During periods of reduced load, during headland turns for example, engine speed is reduced
to improve fuel efficiency. When throughput increases, so does engine speed to maintain a higher work rate. The new
ECO engine management mode benefits from two settings, a high range where engine speed can be set between 2100 1950rpm, ideal for foraging grass, and a low range which spans 1850 - 1700rpm, which is perfect when working in maize.
The operator sets the desired engine speed and the ECO management mode works to ensure the engine always remains
fully loaded to deliver optimal operating efficiency and performance, whilst maintaining a constant forward speed. The top
transport speed of 40kph can be achieved at a mere 1200rpm with 20% fuel savings and a quieter operating environment.
20 21 Drivelines and traction
Efficient power transfer
In order to get the very most out of your FR Forage Cruiser, efficient
power transmission from the engine to the driven parts and ultimately
to the ground is a must. The range’s in-line concept and direct
driveline logic guarantee this and so much more.
Right angle gearbox
The short drive belt offers significant
improvements in power transmission, and
when compared to traditional belt driven
hydraulic systems, the FR’s gearbox
design offers substantial efficiency gains.
Furthermore, this gearbox delivers bullet
proof reliability, as it has been engineered
to for extended durability.
Dual drive option
When using attachments in demanding crop
conditions, an optional Dual Drive system adds
a second hydrostatic drive that allows for more
power to be transferred to the crop attachment.
Dual Drive also allows you to adjust attachment
speed independently from the feed rolls, on the
go, in the field, to fine-tune header feeding and
increase machine output.
Vast tyre offering
The FR can be specified with a wide range of tyres to
suit your individual needs. Full compatibility with supertall 710/70R42 tyres, as well as super wide 900/60R38
tyres mean that strict transport restrictions are met,
whilst a large in-field footprint is maintained for reduced
compaction and enhanced traction. Dual wheels can also
be fitted. The FR’s axles are also ready for the centralised
tyre inflation and deflation system, which enhances
flexibility when working in a variety of fields and conditions.
Super tight turning
The FR’s compact design and impressive 55° steering
angle give it a turning circle of a mere 6.4m. This means
smaller headlands for less time turning and more time
harvesting. Furthermore, the tapered rear design ensures
the forager itself perfectly follows its rear wheels with zero
overhang, making manoeuvring and parking even easier.
Direct driveline efficiency
The single drivebelt concept has eliminated
parasitic losses inherent with transfer gearbox
driven systems, and transmits 100% of the
power to the cutterhead, crop processor and
blower for the ultimate in foraging efficiency.
The FR780 and FR850 are fitted with heavy
duty 9HB V-belt drives to transfer every last
drop of their performance.
Long and stable
The FR’s ultra-long 3.2m wheelbase ensures ultimate
stability in the field and on the road. The four segmented
250kg counterweights prevent bouncing during high
speed road transport when the header is still attached.
High ground clearance, up to a full 14cm more than the
competition, prevents grounding and sinking when working
in muddy, marginal conditions in which the standard
diff. lock is your invaluable partner to keep you going.
Operations that work in the most extreme conditions, and
who are looking for year round foraging performance, will
select the optional 100% mechanical four wheel drive option.
22 23 Operator environment
Your field office
Spacious and quiet
The FR Forage Cruiser range of forage
harvesters quite simply offers you a
home away from home during long
foraging days and nights. The cab
is much larger than its nearest rival,
and you can enjoy all of that space in
the peace and quiet of the near silent
76dB(A) cab.
Easy access
The access steps have been
redesigned to follow a natural arc
to facilitate access. The operator
platform has been extended with
the additional of sculpted hand
rails for safe entry and exit late at
night and after long working days.
360° panoramic visibility
The FR cab’s 360° wide curved windows offer a perfect view
of the header and spout regardless of their position. The
sculpted side-door glazed panels naturally follow the spout’s
unloading arc for a crystal clear view during side discharge,
and the curved rear windscreen gives you eyes in the back
of your head visibility. The optional electric mirrors mean you
can see in all directions, and they can be easily positioned
from the comfort of the cab. Up to three viewing cameras can
be managed through the new IntelliView™ IV monitor. When
loading, reversing or checking the trailer fill level, they are
your second set of eyes.
Stay refreshed
on the hottest days
During long hot harvesting days, the
integrated fridge under the instructor
seat will mean a refreshing drink is only
ever an arm’s length away. Want more?
Well, it can be easily removed for easy
replenishment. Air conditioning comes
as standard, or upgrade to the optional
Automatic Climate Control system
which automatically adjusts fan speed
to guarantee accurate temperature to
within one degree Celsius. The FR is
definitely the coolest place to be.
Bright lights
for dark nights
The FR Forage Cruiser turns night into
day thanks to a complete range of
working lights. A dedicated light at the
end of the spout offers a crystal clear
view of the trailer fill and an optional
HID lighting package further enhances
lighting performance. At the end of a
long day, you can get out of your FR in
complete safety courtesy of the entrance
light, which remains on for 30 seconds,
after you’ve switched the FR off.
Are you sitting comfortably?
Choose from three seating options:
1.The standard wide cloth trimmed seat provides
exceptional features and ensures all operators will stay
comfortable throughout the longest harvesting day.
2.The optional deluxe cloth trimmed seat with heating and
active ventilation is perfect for the hottest days and the
coldest nights, and features fore/aft movement for even
more comfort.
3.The top of the range leather trimmed seat features all
the above and extended vertical travel and automatic
weight adjustment absorbs even the most severe bumps
to offer the ultimate in operator comfort and style.
24 25 Control centre
Effortlessly maximising performance
Intelligent and intuitive automation saves time and
enhances foraging performance. The CommandGrip™
multifunction lever is the primary interface that controls
your FR. All key machine operating parameters
can be managed including header controls, spout
engagement and Power Cruise™ activation. The right
hand console contains less frequently used functions,
which are laid out in an ergonomic and logical manner.
Machine functions can be analysed at a glance
courtesy of the colour IntelliView™ IV monitor.

26 27 Precision Farming
Farm with precision with New Holland
Precise yield mapping
Real time moisture sensing
Always perfectly centred
Precise yield data is also displayed
on the IntelliView™ IV monitor,
thanks to sensors that are located in
the feed roll linkage which analyse
crop throughput; this is combined
with the machine’s forward speed
to give accurate yield information.
This data can be printed out on the
on board job printer. Furthermore,
it can be analysed using advanced
PLM® Software to provide customers
with precise yield maps to enable
them to fine tune inputs to enhance
future profits. This 360° service
could provide your business with the
competitive edge when it comes to
winning valuable contracts.
The new, resistive type moisture
sensing system has been calibrated
for both maize and grass crops,
and provides the operator with a
real-time and an average moisture
reading on the in-cab IntelliView™ IV
monitor. This communicates with
the ActiveLOC™ system, which
automatically calibrates the chop
length to ensure the most nutritious
silage depending on the actual
moisture content of every individual
swath. This enables the precise
application of additive, from the
400 litre tank, to ensure top quality
silage and to eliminate the potentially
deadly risk of mould growth.
Maize headers can be specified
with row guidance to keep your FR
perfectly on course. Two sensors
continuously monitor the position of
the crop entering the header, and
automatically guide the machine
to ensure true perpendicular entry
even in poor visibility or at high
speeds. The system can also be
linked to a GPS positioning system,
which can distinguish between cut
and uncut rows, to facilitate nighttime harvesting and advanced
harvesting activities such as skip row
functionality to ensure your header is
always 100% full, 100% of the time.
Fully integrated IntelliSteer® guidance
All FR forage harvesters can be ordered direct from the factory with IntelliSteer®, New Holland’s fully integrated auto guidance
package. Fully compatible with the most accurate RTK correction signals, IntelliSteer® can guarantee pass-to-pass and year-toyear accuracy as low as 1 - 2cm. A variety of guidance paths, from straight A-B runs to the most complex adaptive curves can
be programmed, as well as the advanced functionality which enables operators to transfer the guidance path from the tractor to
the forage for precision in-field operation. The result? Fields which are cleanly harvested, so every grain, blade of grass or kernel
gets safely stored away.
Advanced telematics packages for enhanced fleet control
Advanced software solutions
The entry-level PLM® Connect Essential package features fleet management
and mapping functionality, it can track all machines and display their current
position as well as letting you know when planned maintenance is due.
Moreover machine security is enhanced as virtual geofences and curfews can
be set. The PLM® Connect Professional telematics package can immediately
message the operator, to which they can respond for validation. Fuel usage is
monitored to prevent theft and fleet managers can even activate SMS alerting
functionality. Fuel consumption reporting, fuel usage analysis and remaining
fuel monitoring are also available. Furthermore, each machine can be instantly
tracked and location reports are sent in real-time to monitor current usage
profiles and assist contractors in managing work flows.
New Holland offers a variety of precision
farming packages which will enable you
to tailor your inputs to reduce your costs
and increase your yields. This information
is recorded in real time by your machine
during working, and it is simply and
efficiently transferred for analysis by the
computer package from the IntelliView™ IV
monitor via the complementary 4GB USB
stick, which is large enough to record data
from over 600 - 700 harvesting hectares.
