Shelf Edition CR 960
1/64 Collectors Edition high feature CR 970
Special 1/64 CR 970 shipped to New Holland Dealer Only
New Holland is set to release an all new Twin-Rotor combine . CR combines will be unmatched for threshing, separating and cleaning throughput. That's because the New Holland Twin Rotors generate unequalled centrifugal force to separate most of the grain up front before it reaches the sieves. It's more gentle and efficient than conventional straw walker designs. And, because the grain drops directly into the grain pan, and not into a bed of augers, as with competitive models the grain is cleaned more gently. The Twin Rotor system delivers results that count-more grain in the tank, less damage and a cleaner sample. In 1975 a new era for combines began with Sperry-New Holland's Twin Rotor combine. Sperry-New Holland was a pioneer in rotary combine design, using two rotors, spinning in opposite directions to move the crop rearward in a spiraling motion against threshing and separating grates that surround the rotors. Large grain tanks from 205 to 330 bushels with foldable extensions let you operate longer, unload less frequently. Grain tank covers are optional and can be controlled from the cab. CR's have an industry-leading three-bushels-per-second unloading speed coupled with engine boost improves your productivity. The overhead-style unloading auger is available in both 18- and 21-foot lengths—longer than those available on some competitive models—to accommodate heads up to 42 feet wide. There will be 4 CR models. They will include the CR920, 255 hp, 205 bu; CR940, 295 hp, 255 bu / 300 bu optional; CR960,330 hp, 300 bu and the big CR970, 370 hp, 300 bu. Ertl will release a 1/64 high feature New Holland CR 970 in July 2002 complete with hand rails, lights, warning flashers, straw chopper, duals and decaled 98c 12 row corn head and 72c grain head. One Premier edition CR 970 was shipped to each new Holland Dealer owner in July. A detailed collectors edition CR 970 will follow the dealer edition in August 2002. It has the railing and all the extra decoration like the ones that were given to the dealership owners. This is as close to a "collector edition" as there will be from Ertl. In August a highly detailed collectors edition CR 970 was released by Ertl with hand rails, rear deck safety rails, rear safety flashers, straw chopper, and dual front tires. Ertl did an excellent job in detailing the corn head and the grain head. The grain head stands out because the real sits up out front of the sickles like the real one and tine bars have been cast onto to the bars for extra detail. The combine has a "Dealer Edition, Collectors Edition" stamp underneath. It has been reported to TTS as few as 3,500 Collectors Editions may have been produced. In November 2002 Ertl will offer a 1/64 shelf-edition CR 960 with a 98c 12 row corn head and 72c grain head with single wheels and none of the railings. The new headers have a wide throat and are specially made for the new CR toys and modeled after New Holland heads.
