Case IH Early Riser 2130 Hits Aussie Shores

Case IH Early Riser 2130 Hits Aussie Shores

The Case IH Early Riser 2130 has finally reached Australian shores. Case IH partnered with leading ag tech company Precision Planting to build this exciting new attachment. This is the only planter engineered and built with Precision Planting components direct from the factory.

Why is the Case IH Early Riser 2130 a big deal?

No longer will Case IH planter customers need to buy add-on technology. That’s big news. And Case IH are excited about it.

Andrew Kissel, Product Manager for Planting and Soil Management Equipment for Case IH, explains how they wanted to give customers a complete machine from the factory floor.

“…this planter needed to leave the factory with everything the customer needs for their operation… rather than having to make the initial purchase and incur the additional costs of technology add-ons.”

Australian farmers can now experience the accuracy and performance of the Case IH Early Riser 2000 series. The inbuilt tech gives farmers even more power from the cab. 

The technology allows us to understand what’s happening and control the environment to some extent. But the row unit itself and its components—the steel, the rubber on the bottom end of the machine—that’s what really makes the difference.”
