Case to show world's largest combine header at LAMMA


Developed to match the requirements of 12m Controlled Traffic Farming (CTF) systems, the use of which is increasing on farms throughout Europe, the new 12.5m Case IH 3050 VariCut header will be seen for the first time in the UK on the Case IH stand at LAMMA.

This unique header, which follows the trend towards ever-larger working widths and makes optimum use of the high threshing capacities of the latest Axial-Flow combines, features a number of new developments and innovative technologies.
These include a rugged frame, double-floor design and one-piece reel. This incorporates a patented reel protection system, which avoids contact between the reel and knife, particularly during knife extension or retraction, while the angle of the reel tines can be adjusted without tools.
Case IH engineers have also improved the Field Tracker system, which uses four sensors that enhance the header’s ability when working on hillsides and uneven terrain.

The new VariCut features are designed to ensure that the engine, threshing and cleaning systems of Axial-Flow combines operate at full capacity and efficiency, paving the way for fewer passes, reduced turnaround time and – in conjunction with the track systems available for the front axles of Case IH Axial-Flow combines – markedly lower soil pressure and improved sustainability.

The new six-model range of Case IH Axial-Flow combine harvesters comprises three ‘130 Series machines, the 5130, 6130 and 7130 from 299hp to 415hp, together with the larger ‘230 Series combines, the 7230, 8230 and 9230 from 449hp to 571hp. All are powered by efficient Case IH FPT Tier 4 SCR engines which deliver an average fuel saving of 10% over Tier 3 power units.
Flagship Quadtrac to be launched
Flagship of the 2014 Quadtrac range, which also includes the Quadtrac 540 and Quadtrac 580, the Quadtrac 620 is rated at 628hp but produces a maximum of 692hp, with up to 2941Nm of torque. This unique tractor was recently named ‘Machine of the Year 2014’ in the XXL category at the Agritechnica exhibition in Hannover.

All Quadtracs are powered by six-cylinder, 12.9-litre FPT Industrial Cursor 13 engines which utilises the latest engine technology to significantly enhance performance and minimise fuel consumption. They are amongst the first Case IH products to be equipped with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), which fulfils the stricter criteria of Tier 4 Final/Stage IV emission standards.

The new engines with the unique HI-eSCR technology deliver optimised combustion, thus ensuring that Case IH Quadtrac tractors continue to stay in the lead with regard to fuel efficiency. This patented technology not only provides outstanding cost-effectiveness but also NOx transformation efficiency of 95 per cent, setting the standard in the industry. The engines are aligned to deliver maximum performance without increasing emissions or reducing effectiveness. Larger 19001850-litre fuel and 320-litre AdBlue tanks allow long, uninterrupted working days to maximise productivity.

Power is transmitted through a 16 x 2 Full Powershift transmission, while the standard Automatic Productivity Management (APM) system automatically selects the best combination of gear and engine speed for each implement and type of terrain. Four independently-driven tracks provide a constant contact area of more than 5.6m², 25% greater than other tractors in this class, which increases traction, reduces ground pressure, virtually eliminates slip and minimises soil damage.

The Surveyor cab, largest in the industry, provides unrivalled all-round visibility and features an exclusive suspension system which optimises driving comfort. The latest generation of Multicontroller features several detail improvements, its new design making it easier to operate, while backlit controls enhance safety when working at night. Standard equipment includes high-intensity-discharge (HID) lighting which is up to six times brighter than conventional systems and provides 360° illumination.
