Up to 20 mph (32 kph) in-field and 30 mph (48 kph) on-road – the fastest in the industry and 30% faster than prior Speedrowers.
Comfort Ride™ cab suspension and Terraglide™ rear axle suspension are optimized for faster speeds to provide the most comfortable ride possible in the roughest field conditions.
The new SensiDrive™ ground drive system uses drive-by-wire technology to provide better handling and greater accuracy with IntelliSteer™ Auto Guidance.
PRECISION LAND MANAGEMENT TECHNOLOGY
The latest PLM™ technology is available to increase your efficiency and precision, from factory-installed IntelliSteer™ Auto Guidance to Headland Management Automation.
THE SIMPLE AFFORDABLE WAY TO MAKE QUALITY BALES
Across every acre, it’s our passion to give you more. The newest generation of Speedrowers is the product of years of conversations with haymakers like you in order to build a windrower that helps you mow more hay in a day. The result is the Speedrower PLUS self-propelled windrower, which offers superior drivability with advanced SensiDrive™ drive-by-wire controls, enhanced productivity with the industry’s fastest speeds, easy-to-use Precision Land Management (PLM™) solutions, and our most comfortable ride ever.
FASTER IN THE FIELD AND DOWN THE ROAD
Time savings come standard with the Speedrower PLUS Series. All three models provide an impressive in-field top speed of 20 mph (32 kph). To keep you moving quicker from field to field, standard models offer top speeds of up to 22 mph (35 kph) while the new High-Speed version (available on Speedrower 220 PLUS and 260 PLUS) offers the fastest top speed in the industry at 30 mph (48 kph). High-Speed versions provide head-forward visibility plus added control of automatic service brakes and rear axle steering for stable, confident, and productive transporting.
EFFORTLESS PRODUCTIVITY WITH THE NEW SENSIDRIVE™ GROUND DRIVE SYSTEM
To cut more acres in a day, Speedrower PLUS windrowers are easier to drive and can operate at faster speeds. The new SensiDrive ground drive system uses drive-by-wire technology to control ground drive pumps and wheel motors, resulting in more power in tough conditions and straighter mowing with less steering fatigue. Improved drivability also yields speeds of up to 20 mph (32 kph) in-field and 30 mph (48 kph) on-road – the fastest in the industry and 30% faster than prior Speedrowers.
MORE GROUND DRIVE POWER IN THE TOUGHEST CONDITIONS
These windrowers have been designed to deliver power in the toughest conditions, such as on steep hills. In fact, the high-speed transport version of the Speedrower 220 PLUS and 260 PLUS boasts nearly double the previous generation’s hill climbing ability, with over 11,000 lb. ft. of torque at the drive wheels and a 20% hill-climbing improvement. Even more impressive is the SensiDrive ground drive system, which compensates by automatically adjusting the pump and wheel motors to provide ample drive torque while eliminating system over-pressurization.
DEPENDABILITY IS MEASURED OVER THOUSANDS OF ACRES
New Holland understands that commercial dependability is measured over thousands of acres. Therefore, the quality of every component makes the difference. That’s why we partnered with Danfoss®, a leading global producer of hydraulic drive pumps, motors, and hydrostatic ground drive solutions. We went a step further and developed a new main gearbox to power these windrowers and upgraded to heavy-duty Dana® brand planetary final drive gearboxes. The result is design reliability that you can depend on to deliver productivity, acre after acre.
Powering all three models are ECOBlue™ Hi-eSCR (High-Efficiency Selective Catalytic Reduction) engines developed by Fiat Powertrain (FPT) Industrial. These engines offer clean, reliable power and performance with impressive fuel efficiency and torque.
SELECTIVE CATALYTIC REDUCTION (SCR) PROCESS
1) Exhaust gases leave turbo outlet and travel through the Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) canister, where precise amounts of DEF are injected into the exhaust stream 2) DEF quickly vaporizes and converts to ammonia and carbon dioxide (the basic elements of DEF) 3) Exhaust, carbon dioxide and ammonia pass into the SCR chamber 4) In the SCR canister, carbon dioxide is neutralized, and the ammonia catalytically reacts to NOx 5) After the catalytic reaction, the harmless nitrogen vapor and water vapor are released through the exhaust pipe to the atmosphere
STYLE MEETS FUNCTION
Productivity requires keeping both you and the windrower cool. On the rear of the machine, the iconic New Holland leaf logo has been incorporated into the rotary screen protective cover. However, this cooling system features updates beyond aesthetics – it’s designed for optimal heat exchange to maintain engine and hydraulic cooling efficiency. While competitive designs use a hydraulically-driven cooling fan that consumes horsepower and varies rotary screen suction and air flow, the Speedrower PLUS has a mechanical-driven 42-inch fan that runs continuously to provide uninterrupted air flow and nonstop rotary screen cleaning.
The Speedrower PLUS Series is built with the comfort you need to help you mow longer. To make climbing into the cab easier, the steps and entry platform were redesigned. The standard and deluxe cab packages offer cloth-covered, air-ride suspension seats, while the premium cab package comes with luxurious leather-covered, high-back seats with heat and cooling ventilation. Adjustments to tailor the operating experience don’t stop there. The three-way adjustable, telescopic steering wheel tilts at both floor and knee level and the right-hand seat-mounted console moves along with the seat. Surrounding you is 73 square feet of curved, tinted glass for optimal visibility, even quieter noise levels, and a high-capacity air conditioning and heating system that maintains your designed temperature.
COMFORT RIDE™ CAB SUSPENSION
Across even the roughest fields, Comfort Ride cab suspension has been optimized for faster speeds. The four-point suspension system includes new front isolation mounts and updated coil springs over the shocks at the rear to cushion the entire cab.
INTUITIVE INTELLIVIEW™ IV DISPLAY
All Speedrower PLUS windrowers are equipped with a 10.4-inch IntelliView IV color display. Conveniently located on the right-hand console to provide best-in-class visibility, this touchscreen display makes operation simple with customizable run screens and fully-integrated factory-installed IntelliSteer™ auto guidance.
TAKE COMMAND WITH THE COMMANDGRIP™ MULTIFUNCTION HANDLE
The comfortable, easy-to-use CommandGrip multifunction handle puts precision control at your fingertips. This handle’s ergonomic design delivers a comfortable feel and places the most-frequently used controls, like forward and reverse, header and reel position, headland management, and auto-guidance engagement right where you need them.
TERRAGLIDE™ REAR AXLE SUSPENSION
The Terraglide air-ride rear axle provides the most comfortable ride possible in the roughest field conditions. Compared to prior models, the new trailing arm design reduces forces felt in the cab by up to 50%. This axle features a four-link, solid beam design that stabilizes cab pitching during fast turns and rapid speed changes. Adjustments are simple with the single central airbag and a height measurement notch on the frame.
