Case IH has unveiled a new lineup of harvest equipment – the Axial-Flow® 140 series, plus new draper and corn heads. Today’s post focuses on the new Axial-Flow 7140, 6140 and 5140, which are the result of years of engineering, testing and asking operators what they need to get the job done during harvest season. Tomorrow, we’ll feature the enhanced draper heads and corn heads.
With increased power, more operator control and fine-tuned Agronomic Design, how can the new Axial-Flow Combines help you be ready for harvest?
The new Axial-Flow lineup combines Case IH Agronomic Design principles that deliver more high-quality grain and superior residue management, along with Tier 4 B/Final emissions compliance.
Fuel efficiency and low maintenance are key on these new combines, with Case IH FPT Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR)-only technology increasing fuel efficiency and a three-speed manual transmission offering reliable, consistent performance. The 140 series provides 63 more horsepower than previous models, with the 6140 boasting a peak power of 411 hp.
Producers spend a lot of time in the field during harvest, so why not tackle the job in a comfortable cab and as simply as possible? Axial-Flow combines are known throughout the industry for superior cab features. Plus, a new spreader option allows operators to adjust spread distance from the cab. The chopper counter knife bank also can be adjusted from within the cab and comes with a retractable knife bank if the combine is placed in emergency mode.
