New Holland CX8.80

The CX8.80 and CX8.90 combines quite simply offer you a home away from home during long harvesting days and nights. The Harvest Suite™ Ultra cab is completely new to CX combines, and is the result of extensive customer consultation. The cab is larger with 130.5 ft³ volume and boasts 68 ft² of glass, 7% more than previous models. You can enjoy all that space in the peace and quiet of the near-silent 73 dB(A) cab. For enhanced comfort during long harvesting days, a removable fridge located beneath the instructor seat is standard.

The new CX8 harvesting console offers ergonomic control of all key harvesting parameters, and it has been designed to become an extension of you. The force-based CommandGrip™ multi-function handle—the same as found on high-horsepower tractors, CR combines and the FR SP forage harvesters—delivers intuitive control and enables you to fine tune harvesting speed for ultimate performance.

The CX8 Series benefits from New Holland’s renowned four-drum threshing system which delivers gentle yet efficient threshing for the highest quality yields. The largest threshing drums on the market smooth out peak loads, even in damp conditions, which ensures easy separation of all grain kernels of every cereal crop or variety.

The Opti-Clean™ system optimizes the stroke and throwing angles in the cleaning system and improves cleaning performance by up to 20% for enhanced profitability. New Holland has optimized the cascade for greater capacity, and the longer sieve stroke and steep throwing angle keep more material airborne for even higher cleaning efficiency. If that wasn’t enough, the entire system works to reduce overall machine vibrations and increase operator comfort.

The new increased tank capacity of the CX8.90 with optional folding covers perfectly matches the huge CX8.90 appetite. A capacity of 355 bushels is the largest available on a conventional combine and provides the convenience of opening and closing from the comfort of the Harvest Suite ™ Ultra cab.

When using the largest 41-foot Varifeed™ header on the CX8.90, a dedicated and powerful straw spreading system is a must. The optional Opti-Spread™ straw management system mounted behind the straw chopper easily meets any spreading width requirement. This straw chopper has been further enhanced with the addition of Dual-Chop™ technology. All residue passes through a dedicated rake to ensure a super-fine chop of all material.

The CX8.90 combine is equipped with a Tier 4A compliant ECOBlue™ SCR engine which delivers 10% fuel savings when compared to a Tier 3 model. Outstanding transient response ensures constant productivity no matter what the field conditions. The CX8.80 also benefits from ECOBlue™ HI-eSCR technology, which is compliant with the even more stringent Tier 4B regulations. Developed in partnership with New Holland’s sister brand FPT Industrial (Fiat Powertrain), the engine also features Common Rail technology for precision fuelling and outstandingly responsive performance.

FULLY INTEGRATED INTELLISTEER™ AUTO GUIDANCE You can order your CX8 Series combine with fully integrated IntelliSteer™ auto guidance direct from the factory to start saving money from your first run. The IntelliSteer system is an integral part of the combine’s steering system and uses DGPS or RTK to help ensure parallel pass-to-pass accuracy as precise as +/- 1 inch. IntelliSteer benefits include less operator fatigue and full, more effective use of header cutting width, which leads to higher capacity every day.
