It’s one thing when we say it, but we understand when you hear it from a farmer it’s a whole different story. We’re talking about the importance of Efficient Power to a modern operation, and how power, fuel economy, maximum uptime and operator comfort all can help make the most out of every hour of every day.
Today’s video features Brad Ramp of McLean, Illinois, who tells us that when you’re trying to plant “a large amount of acres with a limited amount of equipment,” you can’t afford downtime or operator fatigue. Brad’s 2011 Tier 4 Magnum tractor delivers is efficient, responsive, nonstop power that works as hard as he does. As Brad says, “When it’s time to plant, we’ll run 24 hours a day.”
Hear What Producers are Saying: Case IH Smart Technology
All this week and next, we’re featuring videos highlighting what farmers have to say about Case IH Efficient Power, and how they’re putting it to work on their operations. Today we get feedback about the fuel efficiency in new Tier 4 compliant high-horsepower tractors.
Based on feedback from producers who have purchased new Tier 4 Steiger and Magnum tractors, the adoption of SCR technology for emissions control has led to gratifying gains in both performance and efficiency. While meeting Tier 4 requirements was obviously a requirement, these farmers told us that these engines put power first, delivering both optimum performance and top-notch fuel economy.
Watch Case IH Power: Hear What Producers are Saying
You don’t have to go far to hear a company talk up its own products. But what about the folks who use them, day in, day out? We think those are the voices that really count. All this week, we’re bringing you video highlights of the reactions we’ve been getting from farmers in the field to the new Efficient Power Tier 4 tractors from Case IH.
Today, we hear from a three-generation farming family from Kankakee, Illinois. With about 2,800 acres in production, the Ohrts have to cover a lot of ground in more ways than one. That’s because their acreage is spread out over a 30-mile stretch of northeastern Illinois. They tell us they appreciate the benefits of Efficient Power in the field, and the fuel economy they get on the road.
There’s more to the Efficient Power story, and more real farmers to tell it. Keep checking back this week and next for more video highlights from the people who are making it such a powerful success.
Watch Case IH Power: Hear What Producers are Saying
A couple of weeks ago, we asked you to tell us what Efficient Power means to you in a Twitter campaign and contest at Farm Progress Show. We got some great answers, but you’re probably wondering what inspired that contest.
The answer: You did! Last spring, after planting, we talked to farmers who purchased some of the first Tier 4 Steiger and Magnum tractors off the line. They told us that these engines put power – and not emissions – first, using SCR technology to deliver both optimum performance and top-notch fuel economy. They compared the tractors’ ease of use and comfort to driving a Cadillac.
Now you can hear for yourself what these farmers had to say. This first video highlights what producers like you told us about the power they saw in their fields. Check back throughout this week and next to hear more from these first owners about their experiences with Efficient Power.
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.
It’s the next best thing to being there – a video walk-around of the new Axial-Flow® 30 Series combines, guided by Case IH Combine Product Specialist, Mike King, at the 2011 Farm Progress Show.
This year marks the 35th anniversary for Case IH Axial-Flow combines. That’s how long Axial-Flow rotor technology has been leading the industry – setting new standards for the rest to follow.
If you were in Decatur for the Farm Progress Show, you probably noted the Case IH presence. We admit it – Case IH was hard to miss. But if you weren’t able to join us we invite you to take a look at the video recap of opening day.
We also hope nobody missed a chance to tweet their response to the question, “What does Efficient Power mean to me?” Here’s how it worked: Everyone was invited to describe what Efficient Power meant to them personally. There weren’t many rules- you had to include a #EfficientPower hashtag to identify your tweet, and of course you had to observe the Twitter 140-character limit. Other than that, the topic was wide open.
Check out this video walk-around with Mark Burns, Case IH Marketing Manager for Application Equipment. Mark is at Farm Progress Show showing off just a few of the features of the all-new Case IH Patriot® 4430 sprayer. The Patriot 4430 is an industry-leading performer that makes an excellent addition to the Case IH Efficient Power family, delivering more horsepower in a more fuel-efficient package with its 8.7L engine equipped with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology. It offers the most advanced spray technology available, and its improved Surveyor™ cab design makes the days – and acres – fly by in comfort.
