New Holland has made enhancements to its Guardian Front Boom Model sprayer with the addition of the IntelliSpray Nozzle Control System. IntelliSpray features Pulse Width Modulation solenoids on each nozzle that open and close at different rates to maintain application rate. Typical open and close rate would be 10 times every second and the duration of time that they are opened or closed varies the rates. Droplet size is the main criteria you use to choose your spray tips. IntelliSpray technology allows droplet size remain consistent by maintaining a constant spray pressure, and allows for less drift as compared to conventional spray systems. Whether traveling at 8 mpg or 18 mph, the pressure remains consistent. This allows for more convenience for nozzle selection and speeds. Turn Compensation along with 36 boom sections also come standard equipped with the IntelliSpray boom options.

Flagship baler on hand

As the latest generation of New Holland’s reputable flagship balers, the new BigBaler 340 Plus features a 31.5 inch longer baler chamber over the prior model, which delivers up to 10% higher density in perfectly formed bales for stacking and transport, maintaining this high bale quality through the day. The increase in density means more crop per bale, raising productivity.

The BigBaler’s double knot system is designed to guarantee high bale density with lower knotting strain, reducing the risk of twine snapping even in hot conditions, further increasing productivity. The new BigBaler 340 Plus delivers the ultimate baling experience with a host of unique features, such as the IntelliCruise technology that automatically regulates tractor ground speed to maximize baling capacity and uniform bale density, or the best-in-class SmartFill feed flow indicators that tell the operator in real time which direction they should drive over the swath for even bale formation. The productivity-boosting features also include the MaxiSweep pick-up design that enhances high windrow flows with common components-tine bars and reel bearings from the self-propelled forage harvester. The plunger stroke rate per minute and the in-line crop flow guaranteed by the uniform width of the feeding, processing and pre-compression elements combine to make it the highest capacity New Holland baler ever. In addition, the BigBaler is fully ISOBUS compatible for single screen technology. With the best-in-class IntelliView™ monitor in the tractor cab, operators have at-a-glance intuitive fingertip control of all key operating parameters when baling at top speed.
