New CASE IH com­bine in Aus­tralia

Countryman - - MACHINERY AND TECHNOLOGY -

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.
