Case IH showcased the latest features in its Quadtrac tractor and Axial Flow combines at the recently concluded Agritechnica
The Case IH Quadtrac now features transmission efficiency rating of between two and five per cent, and approximately 40 per cent faster shuttle, compared to the previous model. This has been made possible by improved features such as a new steering that enables fewer rotations until full lock in the field, the new automatic differential lock for the front and rear axles and comprehensive new lighting options that allows for safe, efficient and precise work even in the dark.
The new Axial Flow 140 series features near zero grain losses. The Cross Flow slope compensation feature automatically compensates for up to 12° inclines, without driver input. For maximum efficiency, the system is only activated when it is really needed.
Numerous customer requests have been integrated into the new model as well. For example, it now offers easy adaption from swathing to straw chopping, leading to improved work results. A particular highlight is the availability of the F-type rubber track drive from Zuidberg Tracks, a rubber track drive manufacturer based in the Netherlands. The rubber tracks take forward Case IH’s commitment to improve soil conservation.
The Axial Flow 240 series models are also packed with improved productivity and efficiency. Changes to the straw spreader ensure improved distribution of residue over larger cutting widths. This can be monitored and changed from the comfort of the cab to adapt for varying wind and crop conditions. Further updates to the new model allow the standard unloading system to be equipped with the pivoting unloading spout for precise unloading into the grain trailer.
