Case IH focuses on top-end technology with tractor, harvesting and connectivity developments at Agritechnica
The new Magnum AFS Connect range marks the beginnings of technology transfer from the Magnum-derived Autonomous Concept Vehicle also on the Case IH stand. All models feature 8.7-litre FPT Industrial Cursor 9 six-cylinder turbocharged and intercooled engines which use the latest FPT Hi-eSCR2 technology to meet EU Stage V emissions legislation. The new Magnum 400 model is available with 21/5 PowerDrive transmission only, offering 40 and 50kph at reduced engine speed. Models 340, 380 and 400 can also be specified in rear-tracked Rowtrac configuration.
AFS Connect and mycaseih.com: seamless, instant data transfer and single-point access
Case IH is also launching its mycaseih.com customer portal and the AFS Connect telematics portal accessed via this. AFS Connect remotely and securely transfers monitoring and management data regarding field operations, fleet information, agronomic data and more, all in real time, and provides single point access for analysing this data and consequent decision-making.
New styling and upgrades for the Puma series
All Puma models are powered by 6.7-litre FPT Industrial six-cylinder engines, and now meet Stage V emissions regulations with Hi-eSCR technology. They are 100% HVO Diesel and biodegradable oil approved and offer lengthened engine (750hr) and transmission oil (1,500hr) change intervals. They all feature a distinctive new hood with the latest Case IH family styling incorporating upgraded road and work lights offering up to 40.000 lumen in its top LED specification.
Vestrum CVXDrive brings proven continuously-variable technology down the power scale
A compact, high-specification 100-130hp CVT tractor design, the new four-model Vestrum CVXDrive range takes the transmission into a new class – previously the smallest range available with CVXDrive specification was the more heavily-built four-cylinder 116-145hp Maxxum line. Maximum speed is attainable at reduced engine speed via an Eco function, and transmission operation is electronically-controlled for fast, smooth speed progression, with double clutch technology for seamless shifting between the two mechanical ranges, ensuring full tractive power across the whole speed range. Active Hold Control prevents movement on hills and at junctions.
New Axial-Flow 150 combine models
New Axial-Flow 5150, 6150 and 7150 combines, ranging from 312 to 460 (max) hp, replace the equivalent 140 series models for 2020, powered by FPT Industrial Hi-eSCR2 Stage V engines that include an automatic exhaust muffler. Axial-Flow 250 series combines now benefit from a 6,000kg capacity feeder/elevator option and 40km/h option for fully-wheeled combines sold in the German, Danish and Italian markets. Initial settings for Axial-Flow 250 series AFS Harvest Command automation, which helps achieve a targeted loss level, grain quality, throughput or capacity, have been further developed, with the addition of crops such as barley. Header news includes an 8.53m cut VariCut 3050, with 574mm knife travel, for the 7250 and 140/new 150 series machines.
LB436 HD offers higher density 120x90cm large square baler alternative
Capable of creating bales with up to 22% greater density than the LB434 XL model, which produces the same 120x90cm bale dimensions and remains in the range, the new LB436 HD produces bales weighing an average 500kg in crops from barley to wheat straw. A 2.35m five-bar pick-up feeds a standard 29-knife Rotor Cutter chopping system, and ISOBUS Class 3 compatibility allows the baler to control tractor actions such as forward speed. The new two-stage gearbox features gearshift overload protection. Like other Case IH large square balers, the LB436 HD’s new TwinePro twine knotter system means once the first standard knot is tied, a second (loop) knot is created, providing increased strength of up to 30%, boosting productivity and enabling well-tied bales of standard density to be made using lower-cost twine, or higher densities to be achieved with standard twine.
