According to New Holland, the history of self-propelled forage harvesters began in 1961 when New Holland decided to transform its famous pull-type forage harvester into a unit with its own engine and controls.
“From that moment on, the pioneering and innovative spirit that has always marked New Holland has been expressed uninterruptedly,” New Holland says in a release. “Giving rise to a series of real inventions that have revolutionised the sector, New Holland’s self-propelled forage harvesters enable farmers and contractors to increase productivity, quality, efficiency, safety and driving comfort.”
To help celebrate this golden anniversary New Holland is launching a FR9000 50th Anniversary Limited Edition model.
