Speedrower Self-Propelled Windrowers Tier 4B


The Speedrower® self-propelled windrower name is synonymous with unparalleled efficiency, durability and the brute power required to meet any crop head-on and cut or swath it in record time. A lot has changed on these windrowers through the years, but one thing has not. You can depend on the New Holland Speedrower because of its proven record of reliability and performance for over 50 years. That heritage continues with the newest models. We are continuing to raise the bar and put even more power, efficiency, and of course SPEED into the newest Speedrower!


The latest Speedrower windrowers set the standard with best-in-class operator comfort, increased horsepower, fuel efficiency, and advanced Tier-4B-compliant engines. Now you can have the advantage of New Holland’s proven ECOBlue™ engine technology that’s been tackling tough jobs in New Holland tractors for over four years. Plus, the new Speedrowers look great with updated styling that is functional too!
