When it comes to operating Case IH Axial-Flow combines during harvest, we’re going to leave it to our customers to tell the story. Here’s another video featuring Case IH customers talking about their Axial-Flow rotary combines and what makes them stand out from the crowd. The Autoguidance system on the combines is an important feature to farmers, especially for those who are in the combines harvesting around the clock. With easy-to-use controls and excellent visibility, Case IH Axial-Flow combines make harvest simple, like it should be.

Next week, Case IH customers will be talking about Tier 4 and the impact it has on their efficiency and ultimately, saving them money.

It took a lot of combined expertise to bring the new Axial-Flow 30 Series combines from the drawing board to your fields for the 2012 harvest. Whether a new feature began as a bright idea in an engineer’s head or a suggestion from the field, every single aspect of the new 30 Series design was proven and proven again. Along the way, it’s subjected to endless hours of rigorous testing, and put through trials that duplicate the stresses it might meet in the toughest real-world conditions.

Finding Efficiency In $4 Fuel

Case IH Magnum 340

As you’re wrapping up spring planting, we understand your first priority is getting your equipment to the field and getting it done.

Still, we expect that concern lingers in the back of your mind about rising fuel costs as you spend endless hours in the field. “Will our harvest cover these rising input costs? Will prices stay strong?”

With average U.S. diesel costs around $4 per gallon, (reported by the U.S. Energy Information Administration, May 30, 2011, it’s a hard issue to avoid.

While Case IH can’t do anything to lower fuel costs, we can offer you some guidance to optimize fuel efficiency as you operate your tractor. That’s why I asked John Bohnker, Case IH Marketing Manager for Magnum tractors, to provide helpful tips.

From CDPD Rules to Tillage Tools

For our final article in the Case IH Customer Driven Product Development (CDPD) series, I’ve invited Rob Zemenchik, Case IH marketing manager for tillage products, to be our guest blogger. We’ve already discussed how the CDPD process has guided many new Case IH planting and seeding equipment product developments, and Rob tells us how the CDPD process influenced the evolution of Case IH tillage equipment, as well.

Farmers often say that they do their best thinking about farming when they’re actually farming, which is why Case IH developed the Customer Driven Product Development (CDPD) process around the one-on-one, on-farm interview. During the interview, we let the farmers guide the conversation so they can express their thoughts and opinions, and we can identify unmet needs.
