Farmer Adapts New Holland Combine 20/03/2008

Richard Ward, a Warwickshire farmer, has reportedly enhanced the functionality of his New Holland combine harvester to better suit his specific needs, and those of his farm.

The farmer has had a history of owning New Holland combine harvesters, from the TF42 New Holland combine harvester to the TF44 New Holland combine harvester, to his latest addition, a TF78 New Holland combine harvester. It would appear that the New Holland combine harvesters discussed were purchased second hand.

New Holland combine harvesters offer a great level of performance for farmers, and the TF range of New Holland combine harvesters have been accredited with possessing fast speed and straw chopping skills, all within a reliable and trustworthy machine.

As previously mentioned, it has been reported that the farmer from Warwickshire has made numerous modifications to his New Holland combine harvester so as to further enhance its usability. These includes adaptations to the filler cap on the top of the Iveco engine. If the filler cap seeps oil, it attracts loose debris, which may present a fire hazard. This was alleviated on the New Holland combine harvester by fitting a piece of galvanised water pipe on top of the filler cap. A bung fitted to this water pipe assist the New Holland combine harvester by lowering the level of seepage. However, it should be noted that any modifications should only be conducted by professionals, and with the utmost care. In regards to this particular modification, it should be noted that because gas is prevented from escaping the bottom breather vent pipe must be able to operate fully so as to ensure that there is not a danger of back pressure occurring in the engine. As a result, this aspect (when modified) of the New Holland combine should be checked every day.
