Premium Technology in Smaller Equipment
Narrow operating windows make maximizing productivity essential during planting and harvest, regardless of farm size. Dave Brennan, planter marketing manager for Case IH, talks about why Case IH added the smaller Early Riser planters to their portfolio.
Brennan… “We've had a premium technology offering in our planters since the launch of the 2000 series Early Riser planter back in 2016. But those typically have only been larger size planters - I'll say 12 row and above - when you get down to it, technology can benefit all of those growers, and specifically those growers that maybe are a little smaller than average field size and are mixed-revenue operators. That technology really helps them not only with productivity but agronomically speaking as well, and it improves their bottom-line opportunity.”
Kelly Kravig, platform marketing manager with Case IH, says premium technology doesn’t stop at planting. He talks about what farmers can look forward to with the new Axial-Flow 160 series.
Kravig… “The advantage that the 160 series brings is we now include Harvest Command in the base machine, and what that does is it allows an individual who is a less-than-experienced operator to be able to operate the machine efficiently, so we can dramatically improve productivity and efficiency of the combine with a less-experienced operators. So, we now offer harvest command on our class six and class seven machines, so our entire portfolio of combines from 160 series all the way through to our largest 250 Series offers this technology.”
