New Holland Partner With Raven to Create a New Combining System

New Holland and Raven are introducing Raven Cart Automation: a system that synchronizes combine and grain cart movements to ensure a streamlined activity while combining and unloading simultaneously on the go. It sets the stage for a future where seamless coordination and unparalleled precision are the new norm in the field.

“Raven Cart Automation is a profound benefit for farmers and operators seeking to enhance control in the field and minimize traditional harvest time pain points like grain spillage and operator fatigue.

With this technology, we’re empowering farmers and operators to reclaim their time, reduce fatigue and stress and navigate their fields with unmatched precision to amplify their productivity.”

explains Paul Welbig, product marketing director – precision technology for New Holland.

Alleviating Harvesting Pain Points

Raven Cart Automation syncs combine movement with the grain cart, allowing the combine operator to control the positioning and speed of the grain cart during the filling process.

The grain cart driver can sync with the combine’s auger once they are within 200 feet. The tractor operator engages automatic steering and propulsion to enable the combine operator to control the grain cart’s bin positioning, speed, and direction.

Once the grain cart is full, driving capabilities are re-engaged for the tractor operator to navigate to the unloading point. Through coordinated combine and tractor motions, the system significantly helps reduce grain spillage and operator fatigue that’s typically associated with manual unloading while on the go.

Raven Cart Automation has a user-friendly interface, making it easy for operators of any skill level to use. It reduces grain cart operator training time and uses a real-time radio connection between combine and tractor, aligning with a GPS-based AB line.

Unmatched Versatility

The system allows operators to sync up to six tractors with one combine, allowing for a harmonized harvesting process and improved operational efficiencies. Raven Cart Automation can supplement technological assistance for small to mid-sized operations.

Raven Cart Automation is compatible with most New Holland tractors with CVT/PST transmission (2020 model year or newer) and seven CR combine models (2015 model year or newer).

“Initial feedback from customers and dealers during testing has been overwhelmingly positive.

We see a fit for this technology on so many different operations. It comes at a time when every bushel matters more than ever and the labor crunch is being felt on many farms across the U.S. and Canada.”

states Welbig.
