The Case IH stand at SIMA 2019 is a goldmine of new equipment. Highlighted by the new Versum CVX Drive and six-cylinder Maxxum 150 ActiveDrive 8 tractors, Case IH is also showing off its AFS Connect telematics system, the EZ-Pilot Pro assisted steering system and new Case IH Coffee Express 200 Multi coffee harvester.

Versum CVXDrive


Case IH says its new Versum CVXDrive range of tractors provide a new option for mixed farms, dairy operations, contractors and road maintenance operators who require a lightweight 100–130hp (75–97kW) model with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). 

Features include new styling, to match the larger Case IH machines and a 40km/h CVT that includes an Active Hold Control feature and Automatic Productivity Management (APM)

It is yet to be announced whether the new models – the Versum 100 CVXDrive, 110 CVXDrive, 120 CVXDrive and 130 CVXDrive – will arrive Down Under.

 

Maxxum 150 ActiveDrive 8


The launch of the new six-cylinder 145hp (108kW) Maxxum 150 ActiveDrive 8 at SIMA completes the very extensive Maxxum series of tractors, which culminates with a new six-cylinder model, the Maxxum 150 Multicontroller.

The highlight of the new Maxxum is its new ActiveDrive 8 transmission. An eight-step powershift with three ranges, (24 forward and 24 reverse ratios), Case IH claim the ActiveDrive 8 is the only double-clutch transmission to also feature a creeper range option, which doubles the number of gears to 48 x 48 and provides a minimum ground speed of under 200 m/h. 


AFS Connect/MyCaseIH


The new Case IH AFS Connect telematics system provides technology/information-driven farmers and agricultural contractors with a "visualization of their fleet and agronomic data together with the capability to seamlessly transfer data to trusted partners". The system offers coverage maps, machine locations and notifications, agronomic data and data permissions, as well as the ability to share data with third-party advisors.

AFS Connect is primarily accessed through MyCaseIH, a new cloud-based platform which will provide customers with fast, convenient single point sign-in to their Case IH account and a single point of contact with all elements of the brand, from equipment and agronomic data to information and resource materials. Currently in the final stages of development, MyCaseIH will be launched later this year.

 

EZ-Pilot Pro / AccuGuide MotorDrive

The new fully-integrated assisted steering solution, the EZ-Pilot Pro, works together with the Trimble Nav-900 guidance controller and Case IH AFS Pro 700 touch screen display to monitor and control tractor, implement and auto guidance settings/controls through a single display. 

Impressively, the EZ-Pilot Pro is accurate to within 2.5cm when using an RTK+ signal. The system utilises a steering actuator which is integrated into the steering column for a clutter-free cab and to maximise the space available for the operator. Incorporating a terrain compensation system Case IH says the system is able to maintain accuracy in rough or undulating terrain, the system will operate at forward speeds down to 1.6 km/h, can work at up to 45° to the swath and provides auto guidance for up to 15 seconds when reversing to ensure accurate vehicle placement and implement positioning on the headlands.

"Case IH AccuGuide MotorDrive comprising an AutoPilot Motor Drive and Nav-900 guidance controller from Trimble, plus the Case IH AFS Pro 700 touch screen display, offers very precise guidance but with further benefits," Case IH says.

Coffee Express 200 Multi

This excited us the most: the Case IH Coffee Express 200 Multi.

A new coffee harvester which is set to take on the Africa Middle East region, we can only hope to get behind the wheel of one.

The Coffee Express 200 Multi features a unique hydraulic brake system in the shaker rolls which Case IH says delivers greater harvesting performance and less damage to the plants. This unique system is also exceptionally versatile, allowing producers to choose between selective harvesting of the beans or the entire crop.

The Coffee Express 200 Multi delivers is capable of harvesting up to 130 to 150 bags per hour (60–70kg/h).
