At this point in the growing season, you’re probably already thinking about harvest. If you’re concerned about how you’ll get the crop out, it’s a good time to evaluate your equipment needs.
A timely harvest is almost as important as getting your crop planted on time. Equipment downtime can open your crop to weather delays or weather-related losses, such as dropped ears, lodging or shattered pods. A slowed harvest can hurt next year’s crop, too, if the fall tillage window slams shut.[Tweet “It’s a good time to evaluate your equipment needs. Via @Case_IH #BeReady”]
Now, with the new Case IH Certified Pre-Owned* Program, you can gain peace of mind from a new piece of equipment — even when new doesn’t fit your budget.
Start with the Best
Only special machines — those serviced by a special caliber of technician — are eligible for the Case IH Certified Pre-Owned Program. Late-model (five or fewer years old) Axial-Flow® series combines and Magnum™ and Steiger® series tractors qualify for consideration. Combines must have fewer than 1,500 engine hours; tractors can have no more than 2,000 engine hours.
Only after meeting those standards is an analysis of engine oil, coolant and hydraulic fluid performed. This state-of-the-art fluid analysis identifies dirt, wear particles and coolant contaminants that can cause catastrophic failure or significantly shorten equipment life.
Next, a thorough, systematic inspection — 200-plus points for combines and 100-plus points for tractors — and reconditioning includes replacing worn out or defective parts. Those replacement parts must be genuine Case IH parts or factory-authorized parts. New parts carry a six-month warranty; factory-authorized remanufactured parts come with a 12-month warranty. Certified Case IH dealer technicians perform all repairs, returning the equipment to field-ready condition.
A final test drive — conducted only after equipment successfully meets all analysis and inspection checkpoints — ensures that all repairs fully meet Case IH standards, and the equipment qualifies for the Case IH Certified Pre-Owned Program. This exhaustive certification process is a guarantee you’ll work confidently with proven Case IH quality and durability for years.
Equipment purchased under the Case IH Certified Pre-Owned Program comes with a Case IH Protection Plan with Extended Powertrain Coverage** to help keep your equipment working properly beyond the base warranty period. The Case IH Protection Plan covers all major engine and drivetrain components with a $0 deductible.
The Case IH Protection Plan includes 12 months or 2,500 total engine hours (whichever occurs first) for Magnum and Steiger series tractors and 12 months or 2,000 total engine hours (whichever occurs first) for Axial-Flow series combines. Coverage extends to the following components:
- Final drives
- Driveline (tractors)
- Engine-mounted PTO
- Rotor drive
- Header-drive components
- Hydrostatic pump and motor (combines)
- Gear boxes (combines)
In addition to the $0 deductible under the Case IH Certified Pre-Owned Program, coverage can transfer to a new owner free of charge.
