Redesigned Cab Featured in 2013 Case IH Axial Flow Combines

Case IH unveils new features on its legendary Axial-Flow® combines for 2013, including a redesigned cab and a new folding auger with a pivoting spout option.

“Now, Axial-Flow combines are designed to help producers simplify harvest even further through the ultimate operator environment, added innovation and harvest control,” says Nate Weinkauf, Case IH Combine Marketing Manager.

Guided by input from producers and custom operators, Case IH has taken the largest and quietest cab in the industry for large-model combines and made it even better.

Features of the new cab include a slim Multifunction Propulsion Handle, redesigned with controls within a finger’s reach. It contains an upgraded right-hand console with simple ergonomic controls and slide rail that allows for adjustment of the display, placement of a cup-holder and office tools. Multiple convenient storage locations have been added featuring brushed-chrome styling. Operators can stay tuned in and connected on the go with an iPod plug-in, and a training seat opens to a convenient, portable electric refrigerator to keep food and drinks cool and handy. Leg and foot room has been added due to increased seat travel space. In addition, a red leather luxury cab seat option is available for comfort during long harvest days and nights.

“We understand the long hours that producers spend in the combine. Our goal was to offer every convenience of an efficient, comfortable working office and make it available in every Axial-Flow model,” says Weinkauf.

In addition, all models use the state-of-the-art AFS Pro 700 display for yield monitoring and machine and guidance control in the cab. The AFS Pro 700 is compatible with all Case IH equipment, so it can easily be transferred to a tractor cab in the spring for planter control and later to a sprayer to control application maps.

To make on-the-go unload more comfortable and safer as header widths continue to grow, Case IH has added new options to its auger offerings. In addition to the two fixed auger options that extend up to 28 feet, 9 inches, two folding auger options are now available: a 28-foot-9-inch auger that folds at a 90-degree angle and a 34-foot auger that folds at a 135-degree angle.

In addition, operators can now control a pivoting grain spout with the Multifunction Propulsion Handle, adjusting the flow of grain up to 3 feet without changing the speed of the grain cart or combine. In combination with the independent cross-auger control launched last year, producers will have more flexibility during the challenging grain cart fill process.

In addition, optional powered grain tank covers are controlled from the cab so the operator can concentrate on harvesting.

As part of the Case IH Efficient Power family, Case IH Axial-Flow 30 Series models feature added horsepower to power through tough conditions with fuel-efficient Case IH FPT Tier 4 SCR engines. Across the Case IH lineup, the same proven power plants deliver an average 10 percent efficiency advantage over comparable Tier 3 models.

“Case IH has been continuously improving the Axial-Flow AFX rotor, always setting the trend as a leader in harvesting,” says Weinkauf. “Overall, the simple and reliable Axial-Flow design, with fewer moving parts, helps producers stay in the field to achieve better yields.”
