Zhengzhou Zhonglian: Inheritance and Innovator of Xinjiang-2

The development and production of Xinjiang-2 has an indelible effect on the development of agricultural mechanization in China. Zhengzhou Zhonglian Harvest Machinery Co., Ltd. has become the only company that is still developing steadily. A farm machinery company has gone through 30 years, from the start to the lead, and what efforts have been made behind it. The reporter interviewed Chen Chengfeng, deputy general manager of Zhengzhou Zhonglian.


Inheritance is the foundation of survival

In 1992, China Academy of Agricultural Mechanization Sciences and Xinjiang Combine Harvester Factory jointly developed the Xinjiang-2 self-propelled grain combine harvester with independent intellectual property rights. This product is not only suitable for small plots in China, but its degranulation performance is better than that of foreign countries. The product, and the price is moderate, it is very suitable for the operation scale of the rural household contract responsibility system at that time. In 1995, the Xinjiang-2 combine harvester was mass-produced and promoted nationwide, and in a few years it quickly occupied the vast rural market. It can be said that 60% of the combine harvesters on the market are upgraded and upgraded on the basis of Xinjiang-2.


After the development of Xinjiang-2 at that time, Zhengzhou Zhonglian was an important manufacturer of Xinjiang-2. According to the reporter, Zhengzhou Zhonglian was formerly known as Zhengzhou Harvester Factory and was founded in 1995.


“It can be said that the development of Zhengzhou Zhonglian after several decades is the inheritance and innovation of Xinjiang-2. The Xinjiang-2 type combine harvester has had a profound influence and leading role in the development of China’s grain combine harvester. The emergence of China’s national industry’s own brand, laid the technical foundation of China’s harvesting machinery industry, and promoted the rapid development of China’s harvesting machine industry and agricultural machinery supporting industry. Zhengzhou Zhonglian as the inheritor of Xinjiang-2, so many years also We have always adhered to Xinjiang-2 as the blueprint, and insisted on innovating and developing a combine harvester model that is more suitable for the current market demand. We firmly believe that the Chinese can develop products that are more suitable for China’s national conditions.” Chen Chengfeng said.


Innovation is the soul of development


Zhengzhou Zhonglian is not only the inheritor of Xinjiang-2, but also an innovator. In 2007, Zhengzhou Zhonglian was changed into a joint-stock enterprise, which also opened a new journey. After the restructuring, the company deeply realized that only by innovation can we have sustainable development. The company adheres to the market-oriented, constantly develops new technologies and pays attention to product development. Based on Xinjiang-2, it has developed and produced Xinjiang-3, until Xinjiang -7 and Xinjiang -8 in the past two years. Even in the case of the saturated wheat harvester market in recent years, Zhengzhou Zhonglian still insists on innovation. In 2016, it developed a new Xinjiang-8A new wheat harvester model. It has a cleaning width of 1040mm, double-layer screen, closed side reduction, quick-connecting header, high harvesting efficiency, good cleaning effect, wide application

area, and multi-purpose.


In 2019, a new upgraded 4LZ-8B1 (Xinjiang-8) grain combine harvester was introduced, which not only upgraded the appearance, but also completely renovated the cabin. The overall sealed cab has a wider view and the cockpit is clean. Comfortable, low noise, and air-conditioning interface, the new driving operation button is also more convenient; widening the bridge, feeding smooth and non-blocking, making the operation faster and more efficient. It adopts automatic hydraulic high-level unloading grain cylinder, which is suitable for all kinds of grain transportation vehicles. It can quickly unload grain, it can harvest a variety of crops such as wheat, rice, soybean, rapeseed, miscellaneous grains and corn kernels.


In 2008, after analyzing and forecasting the current market, while maintaining the R&D and production of the existing combine harvester, Zhengzhou Zhonglian began to enter the corn harvester field. In 2012, the company launched the 4YZ-3X self-propelled misaligned corn joint harvest. The machine body is only 5.6 meters long, and the turning is flexible without pressing the corn. The picking and cutting header

adopts the forced plucking of the chain and picking up the wrong line structure, and the loss rate is low. The picking roller adopts the large spiral pulling stem method, and the picking is fast and not entangled. The peeling machine adopts the star wheel flexible stripping technology, the stripping rate is high, the front cutting knife, the straw shredding power consumption is small, and once it is listed, it has been recognized by the majority of users. In 2013, the company upgraded 4YZ-3X and added vibrating screen, which greatly reduced the grain loss rate of the peeling machine.


In 2014, the 4YZ-3X upgraded version of 4YZ-3B was launched. This model retains all the advantages of 4YZ-3X and is upgraded to a fully enclosed cab. The front cut medium powder structure smashes the straw for better adaptability and the picking roller upgrade. For double helix, the picking speed is faster. In 2015 and 2016, the company’s 4YZ-3X and 4YZ-3B have their own advantages and occupy a place in the

corn machine market. In 2017, the company further upgraded the 4YZ-3B model, and the new stepless shifting operation makes the operation easier.



In recent years, the number of traditional agricultural machinery products has been large, and the supply exceeds demand. The purchasing power of users has dropped significantly. It can be said that it has entered the cold winter of the market, and some enterprises have transformed or even closed down. But in the face of difficulties, new opportunities will emerge.


Zhengzhou Zhonglian is far-sighted and keenly grasps the market demand. After research on the market, it has been found that peanuts have a large increase in the area of ​​peanut planting due to high oil production and high yield. Compared with food crops, peanut yields are higher. However, the peanut machine yield is at a low level, so Zhengzhou Zhonglian began to enter the peanut harvester field in 2016 with its many years of manufacturing experience and unique advantages in harvesting machinery, and developed and produced 4HZJ-2500 self-propelled peanuts. Picking up the harvester, mass production will be launched in 2017. Even if the peanut harvester is not included in the subsidy in 2017, the sales volume is still hot and can be returned in one year. Words of mouth bursting, clean, stable performance and other praises are endless, 2018 sales far more than three times the plan.


According to incomplete statistics, as of 2019, Zhengzhou Zhonglian’s newly upgraded 4HZJ-2500 self-propelled peanut picking harvester 2019 has already ordered more than 1,000 units, which is in short supply. “We continue to work overtime to increase production, and we have been unable to meet the needs

of the market. When the machine is just finished, it will be pulled away!” Chen Chengfeng said.


History is always strikingly similar. The supply of Xinjiang-2 is in short supply. Nowadays, Zhengzhou Zhonglian 4HZJ-2500 self-propelled peanut picking and harvesting machine is in short supply. We are telling us that as long as we insist on independent innovation and research and development, the Chinese

can completely adapt to China. Agricultural products with national conditions and market demand!


Development never stops


Only when enterprises develop, can they gain a foothold in the competition, especially in the agricultural machinery industry. Only by maintaining development can they stand forever.


As a professional harvesting machinery enterprise, Zhengzhou Zhonglian has been innovating and developing in recent years, and has continued to revitalize its vitality. It has become a well-known harvesting machinery manufacturer in China. The company has always adhered to the core values ​​of pursuing quality excellence and innovation-driven development”. In terms of products, in addition to innovative research and development of new products, the products will be upgraded every year. Whether it is the appearance of the products, manufacturing processes, parts and components, we are striving for excellence. Today, the products are homogenized, through the products. The details are created to let the user feel the difference of the product. Over the years, he has become a harvesting expert with his manufacturing advantages in harvesting machinery.


“The company’s current development situation is good, but we are not satisfied with the status quo, still developing the market, research and development of new products, I think China’s agricultural machinery market, there is still a lot of room for development, I firmly believe that as long as the innovation and research and development, enterprises will go Farther!” Chen Chengfeng said confidently.
