New size to beat

U.S. Farms continue to get bigger, and manufacturers keep building larger combines to harvest more acres faster. Now New Holland and Case IH continue the trend by each introducing new Class 9 combines. They claim their models are now the largest combines in North America.

This New Holland CR9080 combine boasts 523 hp, a 10,075-sq.-in. cleaning area, two 22-in.-dia. rotors, and a spacious cab. Suggested retail price is $385,000.
