The 4400 series corn header lineup is expanding to include narrow row (20" and 22") configurations. The lightweight header, up to 2,000 lb. less than competitive models, floats just above the ground to reduce compaction. For the first time, power is driven from the gearboxes in the center of the header and split equally to the right and left side of the header. From there, separate drive lines power the row units and choppers, which provides more efficient power flow and additional protection to the drive lines. Updated stalk roll spiral patterns handle a wider range of stalk diameters and stalk health. Row guide sensors help the row unit stay centered on the rows, reduce overall ear bounce and grain loss and provide more efficient picking.
Case IH is expanding its line of fertilizer applicators with the Nutri-Placer 940 High-Speed Low Disturbance (HSLD) row unit. The applicator is capable of speeds up to 11 mph and places nutrients up to 6" deep in the root zone. Models range from 50' to 65' widths and feature cast-iron components. They also include the new 22.6" single-coulter-blade design to cut through residue with minimal disturbance. Additional new features include five-section flex for ground contouring, triple-fold transport modes and 30" row spacing.
AFS Soil Command, the first seedbed quality monitoring technology, will be available on the Tiger-Mate 255 field cultivator for spring 2019. Factory-integrated seedbed sensors are strategically mounted to shank assemblies. The sensors monitor each time the shank begins to trip or float, alerting the operator to an uneven seedbed floor. The AFS Pro 700 display and interface allow operators to make adjustments on ISOBUS-VT-compliant displays.
The L10 series premium loaders feature new styling that provides better visibility, efficient, flow-optimized hydraulics and fast mount and dismount (30 to 60 seconds). A chamfered and embossed arm design increases strength and cast and forged components add more strength at critical stress points. The six models in the L10 series are designed for Farmall, Maxxum, Puma and Magnum tractors. A full range of attachments, from grapples to buckets to bale spears, are available.
