Agricultural manufacturer Case IH has released a new combine harvester range, the 30 series Axial-Flow in Australia earlier this year.

Case IH introduces 2013 Axial-Flow combine harvesters
The new Case IH 30-series combine harvesters are specially designed to offer operators a comfortable working environment

The range features three models in the 130 series (5130, 6130 and 7130) and three models in the 230 series (7230, 8230 and 9230)

Case IH unveiled the new machines overseas last year to celebrate the brand's 35th year of its Axial Flow combine harvester technology.

The company says the new range features the largest and quietest cab on the market and will provide Australian farmers with the ultimate operating environment.

Case IH Product Manager Hay and Harvest Geoff Rendell says the new design will simplify harvest even further for Australian farmers on top of offering utmost comfort.

"We know that during harvest, your combine is your office in the field and we've designed the 2013 model Axial-Flow combine with this front of mind," he says.

"Our new, redesigned cab has advanced even further to set new industry standards in convenience, comfort and operator ergonomics."

Features of the new cab include a slim Multifunction Propulsion Handle, redesigned with controls within fingers' reach. The right hand console in the new cab has been upgraded with simple ergonomic controls and a slide rail that allows for adjustment of the display, placement of a cup holder and office tools.

"The new model also features iPod connectivity and the training seat opens to a portable electric refrigerator to keep food and drinks on those hot summer days," says Rendell.

"We understand the long hours that producers spend in their combine - we've designed this model to offer every convenience of a working office."

Case IH says the new Axial-Flow combine will continue to set the industry benchmark for uptime, grain quality and savings, regardless of the crop or field size.

All models use the AFS Pro 700 display for yield monitoring and machine and guidance control in the cab.

As header widths continue to grow and with ease of operation in mind, Case IH has also added a folding unload auger with a reach of 10.4m (34ft) from the centre line of the combine, making on-the-go unloading more convenient.

To save time from paddock to transport, in-cab control of the grain tank extensions and inclined delivery auger is now standard for 2013.

According to Case IH, operators can now also control a pivoting grain spout with the Multifunction Propulsion Handle, adjusting the throw of grain by up to three feet hence making it easier to top off chaser bins whilst unloading.

"The Multifunction Propulsion Handle in combination with the independent cross-auger control launched last year gives the ability to stop the grain tank cross augers whilst emptying the unload tube, allowing producers more flexibility during the challenging chaser bin fill process," Rendell says.

The new models also comes with a new heavy duty drive system, which Case IH claims will increase harvest and transport speed up to 40kph.

Another added feature of the 30 series Axial Flow harvesters is the new "Increased Flex" tyre technology.

"These tyres have a 15 per cent larger tread footprint, providing reduced soil compaction, greater load carrying capacity, longer tyre life, and improved traction in all conditions," Rendell explains.

"To further reduce compaction there is now a choice of two track widths on the 7230, 8230 and 9230 combines-general purpose 36 inch tracks, and the 30 inch track system with three metre centre-to-centre spacing for farmers using controlled traffic systems," he says.

"As a leader in harvesting, Case IH has been continuously improving the power, efficiency and design of Axial-Flow combines to help producers stay in the field to achieve better yields."
