New Model 880:
Built stronger
to last longer!
New Holland's new Model 880 forage
harvester is built stronger, designed for
greater capacity than any other forage
harvester on the market today. The
large 24-inch-diameter cutterhead has
the heft to handle thickest crops with
ease. Fifty-two closely-spaced pickup
fingers on this windrow attachment give
Super-Sweep action ... let you pick up
the short material ordinary pickups
can't get. And a built-in knife sharpener
lets you sharpen cutterhead knives right
in the field ... in minutes. Stop in soon.
Ask to see a demonstration of this big,
new harvester from New Holland.
