No matter how you prefer to cut or package hay, Case IH offers a growing lineup of innovative equipment to harvest and handle it. Did you see the new Case IH hay and forage tools at last week’s Farm Progress Show? How might they benefit your operation?
New to the lineup:
WD 4 windrowers deliver industry-leading HP
The new Case IH WD4 windrowers offer industry-leading horsepower combined with Efficient Power technology. The 4-cylinder WD1504 and the 6-cylinder WD2104 and WD2504 deliver 150, 210 and 250 horsepower, respectively, and are equipped with our exclusive SCR-only exhaust after-treatment technology to meet Tier 4 B/Final emissions requirements.
The WD4 series windrowers offer a factory-installed autoguidance system through the Case IH AFS Pro 700 control center to increase productivity and reduce operator fatigue. WD4 series windrowers now can top out at 24 mph on the road – the fastest in the industry.
Draper headers cover more acres faster
Case IH DH3 series draper headers for windrowers help producers cover more acres faster and more efficiently with a 40-foot header. A shallow, angled top section offers higher throughput capacity, crop feeding and crop flow.
The draper heads’ agronomic design also protects crop quality. A two-circuit hydraulic system offers more consistent flow and power across the header for a more even crop feed, resulting in more consistent, well-formed windrows.
Disc mower conditioners simplify the path to high-quality hay
Case IH DC3 series disc mower conditioners are designed to improve drydown for better hay quality. A cutterbar design with wide discs cuts closer and cleaner, getting more hay in windrows and leaving less hay in the field. Larger-diameter discs improve crop flow and windrow consistency.
Designed for easy, uninterrupted use, the DC3 series disc mower conditioners have lightweight, impact-resistant plastic access doors, simplifying adjustments.
RB5 series round baler line expands
New for 2015 is the RB5 series round baler, which delivers 20 percent more capacity than its predecessor and is available in three sizes – the RB455 (4×5-foot bale), RB465 (4×6-foot bale) and RB565 (5×6-foot bale). To meet the different needs of its producers, Case IH offers the RB455 and RB465 in four different configurations for hay, silage, rotor cutter and rotor feeder. The RB565 comes in three versions – hay, wide pickup and premium.
“We now offer a baler to meet every different operation and application, from dry hay to processed silage bales,” Thomas Beason, Case IH Manager, Livestock Marketing, said.
