Speedrower Series SP Windrowers Tier 4B
Overview






SPEEDROWER® SELF-PROPELLED WINDROWERS






NOW THERE’S EVEN MORE SPEED IN SPEEDROWER®

New Speedrower® SP windrowers allow you to get the job done quicker than ever before, while giving you the industry-leading power, control, comfort and performance you’ve come to expect from New Holland. Industry-leading new features speed the Speedrower models past other SP Windrowers on the market.

 




24-MPH, HIGH-SPEEED, FORWARD-LOOKING TRANSPORT

A new high-speed transport option provides road speeds up to 24 mph*—the fastest in the industry—so you can enhance your productivity and efficiency by spending less time on the road and more time cutting crop. This factory option not only saves you time and labor, it saves you in fuel as well. Another plus: there’s no need to change to “transport mode,” swivel your seat, or navigate the road looking over a large engine hood as some other windrowers require.



IMPROVED STEERING CONTROL

The new hydraulically controlled steering system eliminates mechanical steering linkages, including six rods and pivot points, for simpler, more precise steering.

 


THE MOST RESPONSIVE HANDLING EVER

Straight-line tracking is a New Holland exclusive. New Holland partnered with Pratt and Miller engineering, world renowned in professional motorsports, to optimize the design and performance of New Holland windrower steering components. The solution optimized the windrower’s stability at higher speeds as well as its braking ability. New anti-shimmy shock absorbers on the rear caster wheel wheels of windrowers equipped with the high-speed transport option provide improved steering control. Swivel post casters are positioned at nine degrees for faster response when changing direction or turning quickly. Combine these new features with New Holland’s best-in-class rear axle suspension and Comfort Ride™ cab, you get the smoothest, most responsive windrower handling ever.



INCREASED GROUND CLEARANCE

You’ll easily clear large and fluffy windrows with 42.5 inches of ground clearance from head to the rear of the machine. That’s more than 6.5 inches of additional clearance when compared to the previous H8000 Series windrowers.

 


REAL SUPPORT FOR REAL TERRAIN

You get a choice of tires with rugged support arms to match your needs. NEW larger 16.5L tires provide a smoother ride over rough ground and feature a new single cast support arm design for more clearance for mud, debris and tall fluffy windrows or swaths. Crop will not wrap around the single cast arm, as often happens with fork supports with large tires. Standard 14.0L tires are suitable for most hay operations and feature a new heavier-design tailfork, rear axle spindles and hubs for increased structural integrity.

 


INDEPENDENT REAR AXLE SUSPENSION

This patented feature is now standard equipment on the Speedrower® 200 and Speedrower® 240, and optional on the Speedrower® 130. It provides an exceptional ride and allows you to improve your speed and efficiency on uneven terrain.



POWER DOWN LIFT ARM FUNCTION

Now, you can remove and attach headers more easily by hydraulically lowering the header lift arms to remove the header without the need to handle manually. The power down option allows a single person to change heads easily on the fly and speed to the next field.

* Depending on front tire size.



DRIVETRAIN

 


POWERFUL AND EFFICIENT

ABUNDANT HORSEPOWER
Choose from three Speedrower® windrower models with Tier 3 emission engines rated at 126, 190 and an industry-leading 226 horsepower. Full-flow turbochargers and intercoolers provide quick response and high fuel efficiency.


POWER MANAGE FEATURE

Power Manage is standard equipment on six-cylinder Speedrower windrowers working with Durabine disc headers. Power Manage allows you to reduce engine speed as much as possible while still maintaining cutting speed and not lugging down the engine. When turned “on,” Power Manage maintains the disc speed you choose. If the engine drops below 1850 RPM, the header drive pumps are disabled until the engine recovers to 1900 RPM, then automatically returns to the selected disc speed.

 


IMPROVED HYDRAULICS

A more reliable hydraulic valve block design includes more robust hydraulic components for less downtime. The valve block is now located under the right-side platform, outside of the engine compartment, and the valves are color coded, all for easy serviceability. You get increased oil flow and increased oil cooling capacity pumps that provide more reliability and less downtime.

 


SIMPLE MAINTENANCE

New Holland makes maintenance and refueling easy, to keep you working at high speed. Regular maintenance areas, such as filter and fluid level check points, are easy to access and centralized for faster servicing.



FAST CHECKS AT GROUND LEVEL

Unlike other windrowers, Speedrower® windrowers allow you to refuel while you keep your feet on the ground. Reaching the engine and drive system is convenient, too. Just lift the side shields for complete access to routine maintenance points.

 


EASY ACCESS BEHIND REAR SCREEN

A rotary radiator screen, standard on all models, opens for convenient servicing of air conditioning condenser, hydraulic oil cooler, radiator and intercooler. The rotary screen precleaner reduces debris buildup on the rear screen by using the vacuum generated by the engine fan to continuously sweep the screen.



CAB

 


INDUSTRY-LEADING COMFORT AND CONTROL

Speedrower windrowers continue to provide optimum visibility, plenty of room and comfort with a full-size instructor’s seat and optional heated leather seat.

 


CAB SUSPENSION OFFERS SMOOTH RIDE

The unique Comfort Ride™ cab suspension cushions you from chassis motion to take the bumps out of your ride. It’s standard equipment on all Speedrower windrowers. Four-point suspension includes iso-mounts on the front and coil springs over shocks at the rear. So you can take advantage of high-speed cutting without taking abuse from rough ground conditions.

 




PLENTY OF ROOM AND COMFORT FEATURES

The spacious cab includes storage, lots of legroom and even built-in footrests. The tinted, curved windshield provides a great view of the header and outstanding overall view. A three-way adjustable steering wheel telescopes and tilts at floor and knee levels, and the dual cab air filtration system cleans both fresh-air from outside and air recirculated within the cab.

 




CONVENIENT CONTROLS FOR EASY OPERATION

The innovative floating control console can be adjusted independently of the seat. Once both are set for the operator, they move or float together so that the controls stay in the same position relative to the operator’s hand. The CommandGrip™ multi-function control handle puts all you need at your fingertips.

 


CHOOSE YOUR MONITOR

Select from three monitor options: 1) a Four-Line display with three lines that you can customize 2) Four-Line display with touchscreen-ready, providing all the components to plug and play an IntelliView™ IV monitor from another machine 3) a 10- inch color touchscreen IntelliView™ IV display.



INDEPENDENT HYDRAULIC HEADER FLOTATION

The Speedrower 200/240 and all Speedrower 130 draper models are equipped with independent header flotation, which allows you to adjust flotation separately for the right and left side of the head, without leaving the cab. Non-draper Speedrower 130 models feature unified flotation, with left- and right-hand lift arms carrying the same setting.

 


SIMPLIFIED ADJUSTMENT

The drop rate—how quickly your header raises and lowers to the ground—now has a 1 to 10 user preference setting, making this important feature user-friendly. Operators can program two cut-height memory positions and can make changes on the fly with a simple press of a button on the CommandGrip™ multi-function control handle. On draper-ready models, a lift arm position sensor provides header height feedback to the operator on the display. If many operators operate the same machine, owners can set and lock the flotation adjustment to the setting they prefer.



DELUXE CAB UPGRADE PACKAGE

For the ultimate in comfort, optional factory-installed features include:
• Automatic Temperature Control with set-and-forget temperature control
• An A-pillar information display with fuel level and coolant temperature bar graphs and six additional warning lights
• Front and rear sunscreens
• Four matched premium speakers instead of just two



PRECISION LAND MANAGEMENT

 

PRECISION FROM THE FACTORY

Speedrower® SP windrowers now feature integrated IntelliSteer™ auto guidance that is fully installed and tested at the New Holland plant in Grand Island, Nebraska. Both windrower steering and the guidance system are controlled completely with hydraulics so there’s no delay in response due to wires, electronics or steering linkages that slow other windrowers.


DRIVE BY OIL, GUIDE BY OIL

With New Holland windrowers, guidance and steering are controlled completely with hydraulics, so there’s no delay in response due to wires, electronics and steering linkages used by other windrowers.

 

INTELLISTEER™ ACCURACY

Speedrower windrowers can now provide cutting accuracies from +/- 1 inch to 8 inches, so cutting overlap becomes nonexistent in wide cutting and swathing applications. And you control both windrower function and auto guidance with one screen. System components, including the IntelliView™ IV touchscreen display, 372 GPS receiver, and Navigation II controller are common to New Holland tractors, combines, sprayers and large square balers.



PRAIRIE SPECIAL

 

THE ULTIMATE SWATHING MACHINE

The New Holland Prairie Special is a Speedrower® SP Windrower customized for high-capacity swathing of grains, oilseed or pulse crops. All three Speedrower models are available as a Prairie Special. Prairie Special machines include the features most requested by prairie grain-swathing customers, including:
• Deluxe cab upgrade package
• In-cab control of reel and canvas speeds
• Engine cold start
• Auto Guidance Ready
• Fixed-position crop shields
• Cab and rear axle suspension
• Header quick latch
• Draper ready with chaff wiper kit
• 600/65 R28 R1W drive tires
• Single cast rear wheel support with 16.5L tires



DURASWATH™ DRAPER HEADERS

 


UNMATCHED SWATHING CAPACITY

When you pair a Speedrower® SP Windrower with a new DuraSwath™ draper head, expect your productivity to climb. Available in 25-, 30-, 36- and 40-foot widths, DuraSwath headers cut big acreage down to size and are ideal for swathing small grains, canola, forage and specialty crops.

 


UPGRADED HYDRAULIC SYSTEM

The brand-new Speedrower hydraulic system allows DuraSwath draper heads to handle increased power to the knife, draper and reel circuits. A split hydraulic system features two oversized 40-gallon- per-minute (gpm) piston pumps, allowing the knife to run on one circuit and the draper and reel to run on another. The reel drive is a hydraulically powered chain drive, and allows for more accurate reel speed and increased power for tough crops. Oversized pumps allow you to rake advantage of “Power Manage.” This feature allows you to throttle back while keeping the same header RPMs to maintain performance, but save on fuel and reduce cab noise. In-cab speed sensors are standard for the knife, reel and belt drives, allowing the operator to view them directly.


STEEPER REEL ANGLE

The reel arms on each side of the header operate the reel at a steeper attack angle to reach crop in front of the knives for improved crop feeding, especially in lodged and down crops. You can adjust the reel attack angle as needed on the fly while swathing.

 




MORE RUGGED CUTTERBAR AND KNIFE DRIVE

An upgraded, low-profile cutterbar cuts close to the ground—from 3/4 inches with a maximum guard angle of eight degrees to 1-5/8 inches with a minimum guard angle of two degrees. The rugged New Holland cutterbar system works well in all crops, and especially well in muddy, down and wet crops. Double heat-treated stub guards are available for use in crops that are very tough or green. The Schumacher cutterbar system provides excellent cutting in all crops. A new knife drive motor is both efficient and reliable to handle the torque resulting from tough conditions. The improved sealed knife head bearing requires no greasing. Double heat-treated knife hold-downs have been improved to offer increased durability and easier service adjustment. New, long-life, six-inch poly skid shoes offer a smooth transition and improved on-the-ground cutting.

 


FLATTER TABLE AND BELT ANGLE

The draper angle has been decreased from 20 degrees to 15 degrees for better feeding and improved visibility. There’s ample space on the table and no need for a cross auger as required on other draper heads. Deck opening adjusts from 55 to 65 inches on double-swath heads, 56 to 72 inches on center delivery heads, with an 80-inch opening possible when back panel extensions are removed. An integrated draper seal and slide block keeps deck slides free from material build-up.

 



DRAPER BELTS PULLED, NOT PUSHED

Thick, durable Raptor™ draper belts are center-driven, and are pulled—not pushed—for improved feeding efficiency. Raptor belt canvas now has over eight inches of support, allowing materials to sit front first and make a smooth transition from cutterbar and reel to belt. Belts are double V-guided and fully reversible for twice the life and edge-sealed to keep trash out.

 



STRONGER FRAME AND REEL

The 6”x10” tube frame and fabricated end struts provides increased frame strength and excellent visibility to the cutterbar so operators can see the crop as it is cut. Reel tubing is manufactured from thicker but lighter HSLA (high-strength, low-alloy) steel for increased strength and reduced weight. Specially designed tine and bat spacing helps reduce wrapping, and allows crops to be easily lifted, divided and fed to the draper belts. A locking collar keeps reel arms and bats connected to the center tube. A timing arm now wraps around the bat and has locking knuckles that provide support and stability to the reel.

 


OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT

• Fully castering gauge wheels – 3 to 8 inches of shock travel
• Roto-Shear Ready option – equips the header to be ready to install a vertical knife on each end to help cut through down, tangled or green crops
• Cross auger – available for the 30-, 36- and 40-foot models to help in tall, bushy crops
• Crop dividers – choice of pipe divider or floating tip dividers to reduce crop trampling
• Four-wheel transport system for 40-foot models – includes a two-piece hitch that stores on the header and a flip up rear axle for easy changes between field and transport

HAYBINE® SICKLEBAR HEADERS

 


PROVEN PERFORMANCE WITH SICKLE HEADERS

Smooth, clean cutting is what New Holland Haybine® headers deliver. Choose the right header width—12, 14, 16 or 18 foot—to match your capacity needs, and produce top-quality, uniform windrows, round after round.

 



LAY A VARIETY OF SWATH WIDTHS

Lay down a swath as wide as 96 inches or a windrow as narrow as 38 inches with any HS Series header you choose. There’s no need for tools to change from swath to windrow either. For more convenience, add the electric windrow shield adjustment option for in-cab control of windrow formation.

 





FAST COUNTER-STROKING SICKLES

Get high-capacity cutting performance from the fast, 1810-spm sickle speed and a full 3-inch stroke. Dual counter-stroking sickles with reliable modular wobble drive assure smooth cutting with minimum vibration and maintenance.

 





CONSISTENT CROP FEEDING

The fully adjustable five-bat reel sweeps crops smoothly to the exclusive floating auger. This 20-inch auger, with 5-inch flightings, floats up to 2 inches to handle heavy crops and delivers the crop evenly to the conditioning rolls.

 






CONDITIONING YOU CAN COUNT ON

Known for producing thorough conditioning and fast drydown, New Holland chevron-design, intermeshing rubber rolls have a proven torsion-bar roll-pressure system that applies near-constant pressure across the wide 102-inch rolls. They even open automatically to clear crop plugs, without the need to stop. And no tools are necessary for adjusting roll pressure.




DURABINE™ DISC HEADERS

 


HIGH CAPACITY AND RUGGEDNESS FOR HIGH-VOLUME PRODUCERS

Maximize the performance of your Speedrower® self-propelled windrower with a Durabine™ disc mower-conditioner head. Durabine™ disc heads were designed with high-acreage, high-volume producers and commercial hay operators in mind. That means they’re ready for day-in, day-out operation in demanding conditions. Testing shows that crop flows more quickly and smoothly through a Durabine head than other designs.


WELCOME TO THE WIDEST DISC CUT IN THE INDUSTRY

With a cutting width of 19’4”, the 12-disc Durabine™ 419 cuts wider than any disc head in the business, so you can knock down more acres per hour than ever before. Or choose the 10-disc Durabine™ 416 to slice through 16 feet of crop at a clip. Both heads use pairs of counter-rotating discs and full-length augers for cleaner cutting in all crops, ultra-smooth crop flow and better formation of fast-drying swaths or windrows. You can adjust windrow/swath width easily without tools—from a wide 96-inch swath to a narrow 38-inch windrow. Optional electric windrow shield adjustment allows for on the go changes from the cab.

THE BENEFITS OF A TRUE MODULAR DESIGN

New Holland's MowMax™ II cutterbar sets the standard for the industry. With its true modular design, each disc module is an individually sealed gear case with a dedicated oil reservoir so even when cutting on slopes, there's never a problem with oil starvation to the upper side. In the case of damage, all components — discs, modules, drive components — are common within the different drives, and damage can be isolated to the ShockPRO™ hub.

 


THE SHOCKPRO™ DIFFERENCE

When the mower hits an obstruction, ShockPRO™ hubs absorb the shock of an impact before damage to the cutterbar driveline can occur. If a ShockPRO hub fails, replace it in just 10 minutes, at minimal cost. See just how easy it is to replace a ShockPRO hub. Here's how:



3-YEAR WARRANTY PROTECTION

The 3-Year MowMax™ Protection includes the one year standard machine warranty plus two more years of coverage of the disc cutterbar starting with the input drive shaft. Coverage pays for parts and labor for defective parts or workmanship within the 36 month time period.

 


CLEANER CUTTING WITH MOWMAX™ II

Large-diameter cutting discs mow at a shallow attack angle to achieve a close, clean cut with less horsepower. Cut as short as 0.7 inch up to 3.5 inches with standard skid shoes. Reversible swing-away knives double the cutting life. AA broad offering of knives includes:
• Standard 14–degree twist knives
• 7-degree twist knives lift less dust to decrease ash content in feed
• 14-degree twist, serrated knives for longer life in sandy soils or abrasive conditions
• Rock knives for longer life when operating in stony conditions

 


LONGER, STRONGER AUGER PROMOTES CLEANER CUTTING

Only Durabine heads use an exclusive full-length auger extending from the center of the right outer disc to the center of the left outer disc. The heavy-duty, 20-inch auger features thick, 5/16-inch flighting supported on the back side with an additional bracer. This crop flow auger actually helps the discs do a better mowing job. It moves the heaviest crops with ease, sweeping crop immediately away from the discs and prevents it from pushing down the incoming crop. This leads to the cleanest disc cutting ever, for greater overall capacity. Since it’s not the discs’s job to distribute crop to the conditioning rolls, there’s no need to use co-rotating discs. Durabine heads use pairs of counter-rotating discs—the smoothest way to cut cleanly.



HYDRAULIC HEADER TILT

Speedrower windrowers allow you to adjust cutting height/angle with a tilt switch on the multi-function handle. A tilt angle indicator is on the header and is visible through the front windshield.

 


MODULAR CONDITIONING SYSTEM

Since you can remove or exchange the conditioning module, you have the flexibility to condition crops only when they need it. Choose from:
• Rubber chevron-design intermeshing rolls
• Steel chevron-design intermeshing rolls
• High-contact urethane rolls
• Leaning Edge™ flails




SPECIALTY HEADERS

 


GRASS SEED HARVESTING CONFIGURATION

The Durabine™ 416 Specialty Grass Seed Harvesting Configuration delivers high-capacity harvesting performance in delicate crops that don’t require conditioning, including grass seed, mint and flower seed.



UNIQUE AUGER

The unique auger features flighting that tapers as it approaches the center of the head, with no auger paddles or paddle supports and no conditioning module.

 


FLEXIBLE LEAN BAR AND OTHER FEATURES

A flexible lean bar in front assists with the flow of tall crops into the head without sudden impacts that could shatter seeds. In addition, a second curtain hanging above the cutterbar improves crop flow. In the back, windrow forming rods gently direct crop into a windrow ready for harvesting.



DURAMERGER™ DUAL WINDROW MERGER

 


DUAL WINDROW MERGER SPEEDS HANDLING

Ideal for high-capacity forage harvesting, a Speedrower® self propelled windrower with a DuraMerger™ 419 mounted crop merger lays two windrows side by side to increase forage crop volume. A convenient in-cab control adjusts the merger belt speed and the deflector position so you can lay the windrows exactly the way the forage harvester operator wants them.


LOW-RIDING MERGER CATCHES ALL THE CROP

When fully lowered, the merger rides only a few inches above the ground to pick up the entire crop. The robust merger design lets it float up and over obstructions, then automatically return to its original position, without having to manually readjust it.



EASY ON-OFF CONTROLS

Switching from one windrow to two is easy and can be done right from the cab simply by lowering or lifting the merger. When it’s not needed, the merger tucks up tight and out of the way under the windrower frame.

 


GREAT CLEARANCE, RELIABLE BELTS

Industry-leading clearance eliminates the chance of catching a windrow while crossing uneven terrain. The merger belt system was designed for reliability, as well. Belt speed and deflector position are adjusted from the cab, an endless belt takes the worry out of maintenance, and a V-guide on the inside of the belt ensures it will track evenly, no matter how heavy the load.
