New CASE IH combine in Australia
CASE IH has added a new model to its 130 series of combine harvesters, with the new 6130 Axial-Flow combine now available in Australia and New Zealand.
Launched in the United States about eight years ago, the 6130 has a Tier 3 engine emission standard, twospeed hydrostatic transmission and a 10,500 litre grain tank.
With a maximum harvest speed of 13.5km/h, the machine has a fixed cleaning system, a deluxe cab with automatic temperature control, an A-pillar instrument cluster with automatic crop settings and AFS Pro 700 display.
CASE IH Australia-New Zealand hay and harvest product manager Tim Slater said the combines were ideal for operators looking to replace earlier-model Axial-Flows.
“Our Axial-Flow combine range has been improving harvest quality and productivity and maximising operator comfort for more than 40 years,” he said.
“The 6130 lives up to these high standards, with no combine simpler to operate, or more efficient around the paddock, regardless of the crop, field condition, or farm size.”
Mr Slater said the header featured a Tier 3 engine rated at 240kW (332 horsepower) with a maximum load of 285kW (382hp), a two-speed hydraulic transmission capable of a maximum harvest speed of 13.5km/h, a fixed cleaning system and a large grain tank.
Mr Slater said the 6130 included standard elevators with yield and moisture sensors, a 6.4m unloading auger base tube and a fixed-blade straw chopper with dual-disc straw spreaders.
