The history of New Holland combine harvester

In the 1960s New Holland experienced dynamic sales growth of its products, leading the company to enter the grain combine market. Instead of investing heavily in research and development, they decided to acquire an existing solution. They turned their attention to Werkhuiszen Leon Claeys from Antwerp, Belgium, who had developed his own combine model in the 1950s, renowned in Europe for its effective handling of straw, which was prevalent at the time. Later, they recognized the market potential in North America and decided to build a large combine factory in Grand Island, Nebraska. In 1965, they introduced the NH 990 model there, which became a pioneering model in the series of conventional combines, lasting until the TR model appeared. The following year, in 1966, the 980 model was updated to the 985 model, and the smaller 975 model was added to the lineup. It was also the time of introducing the first corn header for New Holland combines. The next year, 1967, brought the modernization of the 990 model, which became the 995 model. In 1973, the 985 and 995 models were replaced by the 1400 and 1500 models, although there was no successor for the 975 model. The 1400 and 1500 models were the last traditional combines produced by New Holland. Then came the TR series, which forever changed the face of New Holland combines.
