For generations, agricultural workers have depended on the plow as a steadfast technique for weed removal. Nonetheless, there are numerous benefits to ploughing, such as penetrating the soil structure, integrating crop remnants and fertilizers, and facilitating nutrient release through mineralization. Another benefit of ploughing is its effectiveness in managing root weeds and fungal diseases. Moreover, ploughing aids in alleviating soil compaction and expanding the top surface volume by approximately 30%, enhancing water absorption capabilities. All these factors come together to create a significant agronomic benefit for farmers.
PLOUGHING PRODUCTIVITY - Throughout history, farmers have depended on the plough as a highly dependable approach for weed removal. Nonetheless, plowing offers numerous benefits, including disrupting capillary action, integrating crop remnants and fertilizer, and encouraging nutrient release through mineralization.
LOW FUEL CONSUMPTION - Due to their well-engineered design, New Holland plough necessitate up to 15% less draft effort when compared to prominent competitors.
OVER 165 YEARS OF PLOUGH MAKING EXPERIENCE - New Holland ploughs are manufactured at our specialized facility located in Överum, Sweden. The Överum plant has a rich history of over 165 years in plough production, ensuring that every plough crafted benefits from this extensive experience.
A GUIDE TO CHOOSING THE RIGHT PLOUGH
New Holland has created a variety of ploughs to provide you with the option to select the most suitable one for your specific operation. To enhance flexibility, New Holland utilizes a modular system, allowing modules to be bolted rather than welded to the frame. The chart below considers the two key factors in plough selection: tractor power and the needed number of furrows.
TYPES OF PLOUGH: BODIES AND POINTS
New Holland has designed a diverse range of plough bodies, allowing you to choose a plough that suits not only your specific application but also aligns with your soil and topographical conditions. Alongside this, you have the option to choose from various points, enabling precise customization of the soil-engaging components. Opt for short points for rocky or stony ground, or select streamlined flush points for particularly adhesive soil types, tailoring the effectiveness of the plough accordingly.
Every New Holland plough comes equipped with sturdy and enduring headstocks, meticulously designed to align with their intended usage profile. New Holland provides the option of two distinct stone release systems hydraulic or shear bolt allowing you to make a practical choice based on your field's specific characteristics. This ensures that the soil continues to turn over effectively during ploughing operations.
EFFICIENT STONE RELEASE SYSTEM
New Holland provides a choice between two distinct types of stone release systems: hydraulic and shear bolt. These systems boast one of the highest release heights available in the market, minimizing pressure transferred to the point during release and resulting in smoother ploughing operations.
THE PMV RANGE OF PLOUGHS
New Holland's PMV range of ploughs presents unparalleled ploughing flexibility. These reversible, fully mounted ploughs incorporate hydraulically operated working width adjustment, simplifying customizable ploughing with ease. Compatible with tractors of up to 180hp, these ploughs offer convenient adaptability for varying agricultural needs.
ALIGNMENT COMES AS STANDARD
All models come standard with a hydraulic alignment cylinder, facilitating the essential task and adding a touch of convenience. Moreover, the plough's working width is adjustable within the range of 30-50cm. Notably, during the turning process and while the frame maintains alignment, the working width remains unaffected and doesn't reduce.
THE PXV RANGE OF PLOUGHS
The PXV plough range stands as the epitome of professional ploughing standards. Designed to work seamlessly with tractors of up to 360hp, these reversible, fully mounted ploughs boast hydraulically adjustable working widths. With an extendable frame, this plough provides heightened operational flexibility for discerning farmers.
THE PXV OL RANGE OF PLOUGHS
New Holland offers a series of robust, fully mounted reversible ploughs known as PXV OL (On-Land). These heavy-duty ploughs are capable of operating with the tractor either in the furrow or on the unplowed ground, catering to larger tractors equipped with wider tires. In the on-land configuration, the plough maintains perfect balance during turnover, requiring no additional alignment movement. This feature streamlines the turnover process, making it quicker and more convenient.
To enhance tractor traction within the field, hydraulic draft control is employed to regulate the plough's depth. However, when faced with varying soil conditions, operators might need to utilize the depth control lever to maintain a consistent ploughing depth. The inclusion of a depth wheel on the plough proves beneficial to the operator. It is a well-recognized practice that the most uniform ploughing is achieved when the depth wheel and draft control are used in conjunction.
