Pictured in its heritage colours, the Case IH Axial-Flow 7150 will soon be launched in Australia.

Visitors to the Wimmera Machinery Field Days, at Longerenong in Victoria later this month, might think they have travelled back in time when they inspect the newest Case IH Axial-Flow 150 series combine harvester at the event.

The Case IH Axial-Flow 7150 to be displayed at the event, from March 5-7, is the most recent version of a model dating back about 40 years.

The limited edition model that will be displayed at Wimmera will feature a heritage-inspired paint scheme with the traditional IH white roof and rims as well as side-panel decals reminiscent of the first Axial-Flow, introduced into the market over 40 years ago.

Case IH Australia New Zealand product manager for Hay and Harvest Tim Slater says the idea of the heritage-inspired paint job, which originated with the company’s Australian and New Zealand teams, had received a great response from visitors to the Case IH site.

"It’s really gratifying to know that an idea we had down here in Australia has had such an impact," he says.

"It also shows that while Australia and New Zealand may be smaller markets on the global scale, we have a strong influence when it comes to product development and releases."

Designed as a celebration of the milestone, and of the company’s International Harvester heritage, the new model will be available to buy from Case IH dealers later this year.

Slater says that aside from its distinct visual impression, the combine represented an increase in capacity, horsepower and grain savings.

"Many farmers will find it suits their needs perfectly because of its productivity enhancements, price and flexibility," he said.

 Some of the key features include:

  • Cross-Flow cleaning system - the largest cleaning system for a Class V to VII combine in the industry, featuring side hill compensation and industry leading clean out.
  • A two-speed electric shift transmission that for simplicity is designed to use first gear for harvesting and second gear for roading. It also provides increased propulsion and improved tractive effort for difficult field conditions, improving performance when needed.
  • Residue management systems featuring an integral straw chopper, as well as hydraulically driven dual disc spreaders for improved machine access and performance.
