Description

BEST IN HIGH CAPACITY AND CHOP QUALITY
No one builds rugged, high-capacity forage harvesters like New Holland. The best-selling line of pull-type models provides the uniform chopping you're looking for and all the reliability you've come to expect from New Holland.

UNIFORM CUT LENGTH IS KEY
No A uniform length of cut not only yields high-quality feed, it makes everything easier—unloading, blowing, storing and feeding. The key to a consistent chop is smooth crop flow through the forage harvester. It's a process New Holland has perfected. And it's what makes these forage harvesters so effective.

SMOOTH, POWER-DRIVEN FEEDROLLS
Top chop quality starts with four power-driven feedrolls that deliver material smoothly to the cutterhead. The front feedrolls are aggressive to handle heavy materials and pull in slugs. The smaller, rear feedrolls grip the crop tightly to ensure an even, precise cut. Spring-loaded upper feedrolls keep material compressed.

UNIFORM CHOPPING WITH 12-KNIFE CUTTERHEAD
The heart of these forage harvesters is the massive 12-knife cutterhead that's built to move more crop and chop it uniformly using full-width, spiral, hardened-alloy knives with tungsten edges. There's no better cutterhead on the market, and none that's easier to sharpen.

MORE CUT LENGTH CHOICES You'll get the widest selection of cut lengths to meet your exact feeding requirements. Vary length of cut by changing feedroll speed, adding or removing knives or by using one of six optional recutter screens for nonprocessor machines. Read More

NO SLOWDOWN AT THE BLOWER
Smooth crop flow continues at the blower. A 1000-rpm blower on the FP230 and FP240 moves crop fast for increased productivity.

FEATURES TO KEEP YOU CHOPPING AT PEAK EFFICIENCY
Chop quality is the hallmark of New Holland forage harvesters due to the built-in features that help to maintain them. Knife sharpening and shearbar adjustment are a snap. And the cutterhead reverses to ensure a true cutting edge on all knives.

FLIP-UP FEEDROLLS FOR EASY CLEANING
A New Holland exclusive, flip-up feedrolls allow you to routinely clean and inspect the shearbar and smooth roll scraper without taking them out of the machine. The upper feedroll lifts up without removing the crophead.

BUILT-IN KNIFE SHARPENERS
A built-in knife sharpener in these forage harvesters features a huge, 3-inch-diameter, ratchet-advanced stone for faster-than-ever sharpening.

EASY MAINTENANCE, LONG WEAR
Lightweight, hinged shielding panels lift easily, making lubrication, adjustment and inspection nearly effortless. And the shearbar is hardened on both the top and side for even wear and extra-long life. It’s also reversible, so when one side wears down, just turn it around.

ONE-PASS CORN SILAGE PROCESSING
Improve your corn silage feed efficiency with New Holland's optional onboard CropPro™ crop processor. Factory-installed between the cutterhead and blower, it shears cobs and stems, and cracks and crushes kernels, producing silage that is higher in effective fiber and easier for the herd to digest.

HIGHER MILK PRODUCTION WITHOUT SUPPLEMENTS More complete crop processing means more digestible feed and better milk production from your herd, without buying additional feed or supplements, and without the expense and process time of a stationary roller mill.

EASY SWITCH BETWEEN CROPS The unit comes factory installed, so the only adjustment necessary is when you switch from making corn silage to haylage. To do that, just remove or replace a single baffle and you're set to go. A 7-foot-long, 11 3/8-inch-diameter cross-flow auger moves silage from the crop processor to the blower fan.

PROTECT EQUIPMENT AND CATTLE
Broken rake tines, sickle sections and lost hitch pins can turn up in the cleanest fields. Large pieces can cause costly cutterhead damage, while smaller pieces can end up in livestock feed and harm animals. An easy way to avoid these dangers is to install the Metalert® III electronic metal detector on your forage harvester.

COMES WITH FIVE-YEAR PROTECTION PLAN
The Metalert III system delivers peace of mind and a five-year cutterhead protection plan that pays for all parts and labor to repair any damaged part resulting from ferrous metal entering the cutterhead. The Metalert III microcomputer also provides on-board diagnostic capabilities.

SYSTEM BASED ON MAGNET AND SENSOR
A magnet and sensor are housed in the lower front feedroll. The magnet emits a constant magnetic field between the two front stainless steel feedrolls. When a stray piece of iron or steel enters, a signal is sent to a solenoid located above the upper feedroll to stop them. It also shuts off power to an electric clutch on the reversing gearbox.
