It’s A New Era In Combine Technology With Case IH

It’s A New Era In Combine Technology With Case IH

We are on the brink of a new era in combine technology, thanks to Case IH and their new 50 series Axial-Flow combines.

Launching at the Wimmera Machinery Field Days in March, the Case IH Axial-Flow combines host plenty of upgrades and new technology. Models available to the Aussie market include the 7250, 8250 and 920 from the 250 series, and the 7150 from the 150 series.

Case IH ANZ Product Manager (Hay and Harvest), Tim Slater, says there’s a lot to be excited about. “No matter the conditions or crop type, the consistency in performance of this new series is what sets it apart.”

What’s New for Case IH Combines?

“There’s a number of new automated features that assist in maximising the efficiency and performance of the combine. In turn, it optimises grain quality and grain savings. Ease of operation is enhanced, meaning operators of all experience levels can make the most of their time in the cab,” says Tim.

Case IH Combine Enhancements

The new Axial-Flow models include enhancements such as:

  • 2-speed electric shift ground drive transmission
  • Simple adjustable rotor cage vanes
  • Improved feeder house design
  • Optional AFS Harvest Command combine automation system

What does this mean for jobs? Tim says the AFS Harvest Command automation system helps aid skilled operators, not replace them.

“Making this model more ‘user-friendly’ for anyone who gets in the cab, no matter their experience level, was a design focus for the 250. The AFS Harvest Command helps operators enhance the results they’re already achieving, while helping those with less experience get up to speed more quickly,” he says.

Operators can manage this new technology through the in-cab AFS Pro700 display. It can be set to suit the level of experience of the operator, as well as the crop condition and type, and harvesting conditions.

New Combine Features

On top of these enhancements, and their new-look styling, Case IH have also added some new standard features to the 250 series. These include:

  • Enclosed hydraulic-powered disc brakes
  • New front axle and final drives
  • Scalable MFH speed control
  • Improved AHHC control logic
  • New Ground Speed Adaptive Sensitivity (GSAS)
  • New in-cab adjustable pre-sieve
