CNH delivered in May a fleet of 90 New Holland combines to the Government of Turkmenistan; the machines, which were immediately put to work in the field, exceeded expectations as they fulfilled their role in the harvest of over a third of the Country’s 850,000 ha (2,100,400 ac) of wheat
LUGANO, Switzerland – (July 14, 2011) – CNH International, a subsidiary of CNH Global, the manufacturer of New Holland machinery and a world leader in the agricultural and construction equipment industry, delivered a fleet of 90 New Holland CSX7050 combine harvesters to the Government of Turkmenistan in May, which were immediately sent to work on this year’s harvest. The sale is part of a long-standing trade relationship between the two parties, which is aimed at supporting the country’s growing agricultural sector and, since 1994 has seen the supply of more than 1,500 tractors, 300 cotton pickers and 1,100 combine harvesters.
The fleet of New Holland CSX7050 combines was deployed in two installments: 30 units were sent to the western region of Balkan to harvest 85,000 hectares (210,040 ac), while the remaining 60 were immediately put to work on the 200,000 hectares (494,000 ac) in the Mary region, East of Ashgabat. To ensure the full success of the machines’ first harvesting season, training was provided to the combine operators. This was followed up by regular field visits from New Holland product specialists and dealer technicians throughout the season to monitor the machines’ performance and help the operators get the most out of the CSX combines. In anticipation of the start of the harvest season, technicians were trained specifically on this combine model at the CNH Training Centre in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.
With maximum engine power at 2,000 rpm of 200kW (272 hp), the CSX7050 combines are high capacity, extremely versatile machines, thanks to the four-drum threshing and separation technology. The system, which includes the Opti-Thresh™ concave, beater, Rotary Separator and Straw Flow™ beater, can be adapted to suit a wide variety of crops and harvesting conditions with no compromise in kernel and straw quality or throughput, as the farmers and operators who used these machines in Balkan and Mary discovered. The Opti-Thresh™ system received particularly high praise for dealing exceedingly well with the Turkmen crop conditions, delivering minimal grain losses.
The CSX7050 combines that are hard at work in Turkmenistan were designed and built in the New Holland centre of excellence for harvesting equipment in Zedelgem, Belgium. This is where the first steps in mechanizing the harvest were taken more than 100 years ago and the first European self-propelled combine harvester was unveiled in 1952. These are only two examples of the innovative spirit that has led to the development of unique technologies such as the Opti-Thresh™ system, earning New Holland recognition around the world as a leader in combine harvester excellence.
