New Holland FR550
BEST-IN-CLASS CHOP QUALITY, PROCESSING EFFICIENCY AND COMFORT
New Holland has been at the forefront of the forage harvester market for over half a century, revolutionizing the way you chop with a host of pioneering industry firsts. Now, the NEW FR Forage Cruiser self-propelled forage harvesters offer innovation and productivity in a five-model line from 476 right up to 824 horsepower. New Holland has married industry-leading chopping and crop processing performance with outstanding operator comfort and new, efficient engine packages.
The FR’s compact design and impressive 55° steering angle give it a turning circle of a mere 21 feet. This means smaller headlands for less time turning and more time harvesting. Furthermore, the tapered rear design ensures the harvester itself perfectly follows its rear wheels with zero overhang, making maneuvering and parking even easier.
LONG AND STABLE
The FR’s ultra-long wheelbase ensures ultimate stability in the field and on the road. Up to four segmented 500-lb counterweights prevent bouncing during high-speed road transport when the header is still attached.
HIGH GROUND CLEARANCE
High ground clearance, up to a full four inches more than the competition, prevents grounding when working in muddy, marginal conditions. Operations that work in the most extreme conditions and who are looking for year-round forage harvesting performance, will select the optional 100% mechanical four-wheel-drive option.
