    New Holland is a global brand of agricultural machinery produced by CNH Industrial. New Holland agricultural products include tractors, combine harvesters, balers, forage harvesters, self-propelled sprayers, haying tools, seeding equipment, hobby tractors, utility vehicles and implements, and grape harvesters.

    The original New Holland Machine Company was founded in 1895 in New Holland, Pennsylvania; it was acquired by Sperry Corporation in 1947, then by Ford Motor Company in 1986, and then by FiatAgri in 1991, becoming a full-line producer. In 1999, New Holland became a brand of CNH Global (NYSE: CNH), which was majority-owned by Fiat Industrial. On 29 September 2013, CNH Global N.V. and Fiat Industrial S.p.A. were merged into CNH Industrial N.V., a company incorporated in the Netherlands. Fiat Industrial shareholders received one CNH Industrial common share for every Fiat Industrial share held and CNH Global shareholders received 3.828 CNH Industrial common shares for every CNH Global common share held. CNH Industrial N.V. was subsequently listed on both the NYSE and the Milan stock exchange (Mercato Telematico Azionario).

    New Holland equipment is manufactured all around the world; the current administrative headquarters are in Turin, Italy, with New Holland, Pennsylvania serving as the brand's headquarters for North America and home of the largest hay tools production facility in the world. With 18 plants spread globally, as well as six joint ventures in the Americas, Asia, and Middle East, the corporation is present in 170 countries worldwide.

    The TR96 was built in the mid 1980s through early 1990s on a 130" wheelbase and was powered by 634 cubic inch V-8 diesel from New Holland. It's 100 gallon fuel tank and 230 bushel grain hopper meant it could go for a decent length w/out refueling.

    ERTL brought out this 1/32 scale model in 1987. Like the real 1/1 model it features rear wheel assist, operational auger and on the combine attachment the reels are gear driven by friction drive. The corn header is plastic while the bean is metal with plastic reel. While it lacks an actual interior it was an ideal combine for rug farmers in the day.

    Lots of New Holland yellow in these parts as there was a New Holland dealership 40 some miles north of my area. Where I grew up out in eastern Washington, New Holland, in those days, was only seen in pictures and perceived to be from "the east." Great 1/32nd scale model you have in your collection - again a farm toy scale I never paid to much attention to.
