Tag: Efficient Power

Our Case IH product specialists based in the field tell me that a few of you have already begun to put seed in the ground this spring.  This week’s initial USDA Crop Progress Report confirms that.

Many of you are still gearing up, or perhaps just impatiently waiting for the first crop insurance planting date:  April 6 for corn in Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio and April 11 for Iowa and Minnesota. So what’s top-of-mind for you during this critical window?  (more…)

The results are in from the Nebraska Tractor Test Lab confirming Tier 4A Case IH tractors with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology have set new industry records for fuel-efficient power.

For example, the Steiger® 600 set the record for drawbar horsepower and fuel efficiency versus the competitions’ biggest tractor. Measured at maximum power in horsepower-hours-per-gallon, the Steiger 600 tested 8.4 percent more fuel efficient than the Deere 9630 at maximum drawbar pull, and 10.5 percent more fuel efficient at 75 percent drawbar pull maximum power.

Getting Inside Selective Catalytic Reduction

Using an actual Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) muffler that’s been cut away to reveal its inner workings, Kevin Knapp from Case IH explains the SCR system that can be found in our new Tier 4A 30 Series Axial-Flow combines, as well as our high-horsepower tractors. The system is a model of simplicity and engineering efficiency.

The biggest advantage of SCR as the emissions-reduction technology of choice is what you don’t see. The entire system can be explained without showing the engine at all. That’s because Tier 4 compliance is achieved after combustion, allowing the power plant to be tuned for optimum performance and economy. Kevin probably puts it best when he says, “The engine’s just there to create power, and do it efficiently.”

Hear what producers are saying about Case IH simple operation.

In a historical sense, they represent the third and fourth generations of their Illinois farming family, but Don and Jon Thompson don’t spend much time looking backward. Instead, this father-son farming team keeps an eye on the future, adopting innovative technologies as soon as they become available, and adapting quickly to constant changes in farming practices.

Knowing their background, it’s no surprise that the Thompsons were among the first to see the advantages of the Axial-Flow rotary combine back in the mid 1970s, and that today they’re near the head of the line to see the advantages of new Case IH Tier 4A engine technology.

If you haven’t seen the earlier video posts highlighting what producers are saying about Case IH technology, check back over the last week or so.  You’ll hear a variety of voices talking about Case IH Efficient Power, using terms like powerful, smart technology, and simple operation. Or for the big picture, just visit Case IH at our YouTube channel.

We’ve been the featuring video highlights of the Efficient Power story for more than a week now- scroll down to see our earlier posts, or visit us at our YouTube channel.

First Owners Reports: Simple Operation

Categories: Efficient Power

The fact is, no matter how sophisticated the engineering gets, the key to delivering Efficient Power is making it simple and straightforward for the folks who use it every day. That’s what today’s video is all about. We hear from a variety of Case IH customers about their day-to-day, real-world experience with their model year 2011 Tier 4 Steiger and Magnum tractors.

And just what are they saying about their new Tier 4 compliant tractors? Exactly what most producers would want to hear: Simple operation, fuel efficiency, operator friendliness, and importantly, no issues with using Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) for the SCR system.  Watch for yourself.

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.”

In the days to come, we’ll have more videos from the field to tell more of the Efficient Power story. To see more right now, visit CaseIH.com/EfficientPower or our YouTube channel.

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.
