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.
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.

This spring, farmers used Case IH high-horsepower tractors equipped with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology to plant their fields. When asked about how they felt about Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF), their responses were positive:
- Outstanding mileage
- Above and beyond tractor performance
- Maximum fuel efficiency
- Case IH continues to be a leader in innovation

Depending on where you’re located, harvest season is either rapidly approaching or well underway. It’s the time of year when you get see how well your efforts paid off. We understand that farming only gives you one shot at every season. We’ve said it before, our goal is to help you BE READY to take that shot.
Check out the video capturing Midwest growers’ thoughts about SCR technology.
The future leaders of production agriculture met in Des Moines, Iowa, the last week in July for the National FFA Organization New Century Farmer Conference. Forty-nine young people from across the U.S. participated in personal and professional development workshops, while networking with agriculture industry professionals.
In our quest to prepare this new generation of farmers “Be Ready” and embrace agriculture’s challenges and opportunities, Case IH helped sponsor the event. We hosted a dinner for the participants at the Case IH Training Center in Nevada, Iowa, and presented on new and technologies in farm machinery.
It’s a valid question asked by many producers on a regular basis, and one that Case IH can answer.
Diesel engines have evolved into more powerful and fuel-efficient engines since their invention more than a century ago. While this evolution is good for productivity in the fields, it’s bad for emissions.
Check out Case IH’s latest “From the Field” video post on The Weather Channel titled, “How can our farmers meet emissions standards?”. This video post discusses how Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology not only helps Case IH high-horsepower tractors meet Tier 4 emissions regulations, but also how it creates cleaner oil, less maintenance, and the power producers need to get the job done.

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.
Check out Case IH’s behind-the-scenes interview with Dawn Geske of Diesel Progress International
As a panelist for the Case IH Be Ready VIP Discussion: Engine Emissions Technology – Fact vs. Fiction, Dawn Geske, Editor-In-Chief of Diesel Progress International, explained that Diesel Progress has been following the emissions mandates and the development of new emission technologies since the beginning. “Engine manufacturers really put a significant amount of investment and research and development into meeting these requirements,” said Geske. “They’ve been working on this for many years to make sure they’re giving producers the best technology that meets Tier 4A mandates.”
In last week’s blog post, “Engine Ed: What’s the 4-1-1 on Case IH’s 2011 Lineup?” David Stark walked us through some key features of the new Case IH engines and explained how they work together to provide Case IH’s 2011 lineup of Steiger®, Magnum™, and Puma™ tractors with the power, performance, and fuel efficiency you need to get the job done.
With that said, I know many of you are curious about Case IH’s partnership with Fiat Powertrain Technologies (FPT), so I wanted to provide some background about this partnership and what it means for you.
