Tri-stripe combine features new look
CASE IH will launch its new 250 series Axial-Flow combine next month, with new tri-stripe decal styling.
The company announced late last year it would launch three new 250 series Axial-Flow combines, replacing the existing 7240, 8240 and 9240 models.
The 250 series will sport a different look and feature two-speed electric shift ground drive, adjustable rotor cage vanes and an improved feeder house design.
It also features a fore-aft feeder faceplate tilt and header height control.
Case says the automation upgrades make harvesting easier, by sensing and optimising the machine settings regardless of the operator’s skill level.
CASE IH plans to launch the new machine at O’Connors site at Wimmera Machinery Field Days in Victoria on March 5.
O’Connors chief executive Gareth Webb said the hosting the Axial-Flow 250 series launch in Victoria was an “Aussie first”, after a number of product launches in NSW.
“We are very excited to be hosting the Australian launch,” he said.
The company will also launch a limited-edition CASE IH Axial-Flow 150 series combine at Wimmera. The machine, which will be for sale at an undisclosed price, will celebrate the company’s international harvester heritage.
It features a heritage-inspired paint scheme with the traditional white roof and rims, as well as side panel decals reminiscent of the first Axiel-Flow, introduced more than 40 years ago.
CASE IH Australia product manager Tim Slater said the idea to create the heritage-inspired harvester had a “great response” from visitors to the CASE IH site.
“The uptake on social media and the feedback it created was amazing,” he said.
The official unveiling of the Case IH Axial-Flow 250 Series and the limited edition 150 Series will take place on March 5.
The launch will coincide with the Wimmera Field Days’ inaugural twilight session.
Visitors to the O’Connors site at J1-15 will be able to view the new machines for the duration of the event.
