Case IH Round Baler RB455/465 Series Variable Chamber

Case IH have integrated a multitude of features into the new RB design so that every model is capable of following the largest combine or baling the heaviest crop with remarkable speed and efficiency. The bale size can be altered (from 90cm - 150cm/180cm) and monitored from the comfort of the tractor seat and the wrapping system is unbeatable – so there’s no need for you to worry about the crop type or conditions; you just follow the swath.

 width=

High Speed Pickup

Clean pick up of all crop types: choose from the standard 4-bar or heavy duty 5-bar pickup with heavy duty tines. The new double auger option with integrated feeding roll allows high capacity baling in large windrows.

Roto Cutter & Drop Floor Option

Work in comfort: choose from rotor feeder and rotor cutting versions. In the latter the 15 knives, protected from stones, can easily be replaced without using tools. The drop floor allows quick clearing of any foreign material without leaving the tractor seat.

New Belts

Minimum crop losses: the endless belts keep a strong grip on the bales and with four belts losses of valuable crop are cut to a minimum.

Dual Density Option

High efficiency, high quality: the dual density option enables you to add extra weight to the bale, making this an industry leading high density baler. Fewer, heavier bales require less transport and storage, and promise higher silage quality.

Serviceability 

Ground access: all service points can be easily reached thanks to wide opening doors that provide easy access. The baler is fitted with long life heavy duty chains which are lubricated each time the rear door is opened. Net rolls are easily changed from ground level.

Take the power and performance of the Polaris ProStar engine delivering 31hp. Wrap around it the new Sportsman 450 H.O. and you have a full-size capability ATV at a 400cc class, entry-level price.

 width=

The Sportsman 450 H.O. is the new star of the Polaris Sportsman range, featuring Polaris’ legendary automatic 4x4 system with On-Demand, True All-Wheel Drive which engages all four wheels when you need more traction and reverts back to 2WD when you don’t. For a smoother ride there is the proven MacPherson Strut front suspension with 8.2in/20.8cm of travel and Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) with softer suspension springs for a better ride. Manoeuvring over obstacles is made easier with 10.5in/26.6cm of ground clearance and the Sportsman 450 H.O. benefits from a new style seat with more foam and a durable base to keep your ride more comfortable.

Storage is all-important with any hard working ATV and the new Polaris has a 180lbs/81.6 kg capacity rear steel rack and 90lbs/40.8kg front rack that is Lock & Ride compatible along with 1225lbs/557.7kg of towing capacity. The front storage capacity allows you to stow away loads of gear and still have access to it, even with items tied to the deck.

To run more electrical accessories the vehicle has a 660 watt output and comes with industry-exclusive integrated plough and winch mounts. For working in high dust areas a high-flow, high capacity air filter provides better dust filtration, while Electronic Fuel Injection provides flawless starting and smooth running in varied temperature and altitude. Braking is made easy with a single lever hydraulic disc system for all-wheel braking and a foot brake for rear wheel braking.

Also a key feature is the Polaris PVT Automatic Transmission which allows you to easily shift between High, Low, Neutral, Reverse and Park. The new Sportsman 450 H.O. comes in sage green and with its long list of features for 2016 is certainly a new star in the rising.

New Tractor Range For Case IH

08 SEP

Case IH announces the new Optum CVX range with a stunning new design, Powerful, compact and highly manoeuvrable with excellent power-to-weight-ratio, Efficiency, versatility and reliability.

More power and close to ‘Puma dimensions’ is what Case IH claims the European farming community have been asking for; this has now been achieved! The new Optum CVX is the first Case IH tractor to have the new design with a new bonnet and rear fender styling, plus eye catching signature lighting.

Modern, productive farming and contracting businesses in Europe are amongst the most demanding customers worldwide, one reason being that cropping is more intensive and yields are higher than in most other regions, whilst weather conditions often limit available time windows for field work. Handling any given task with maximum performance, efficiency and reliability is therefore what the Optum CVX was designed and built for”, says Andreas Klauser, Case IH President.

Case IH Optum CVX

The Optum CVX range consists of two models with compact 6.7 litre NEF engines from FPT Industrial, with 270 or 300hp at a rated speed of 2,100rpm and a maximum power of 313hp at 1,800rpm for the larger of the two models. The engines feature Hi-eSCR only after-treatment solution for maximum combustion efficiency and fulfil Stage IV emission regulations. Changes for the engine include new valve material and design for the engine head for higher combustion pressure; however the major change comes in the lower part of the engine block and oil sump, with a specific design where the sump serves as backbone of the tractor, thus removing stress from the engine block. Whilst the typical weight of the Optum CVX amounts to 11,000kg, this ‘structural sump’ allows for a maximum gross vehicle weight of 16,000kg, providing ballast and payload options for the customer.The Optum CVX has the ability to put the additional power to the ground whilst maintaining the agility of the smaller models, thus further increasing efficiency, maximising uptime and increasing comfort levels for the operator, whilst reducing total cost of ownership: “This is an ‘Optumal’ solution for this broad range of demands and specifications. Our engineers have rethought and revised every single detail, always looking for ways to optimise efficiency, performance and reliability alike”, highlights Case IH Product Marketing Manager Dan Stuart.

The single eVGT turbocharger delivers the high torque required at low engine speeds and responds faster than twin turbos, thus making the Optum a true ‘power pack’”, says Stuart. “In addition, owners and operators will enjoy the longest service intervals in this power sector and less time and money needs to be spent on routine maintenance. A massive reservoir of 630 litres diesel and 96 litres AdBlue tanks, and idle speed management which reduces the engine speed from 850 rpm to 650 rpm, further adds to the highly efficient operation of the Optum CVX as there is less need to spend time returning to the farmyard for refuelling”, he adds

New Design

Creating a tractor that offers our customer the best solution is one thing, but we also know that customers and operators like to be proud of the tractor they own and drive. The most striking thing for people when they see the Optum CVX for the first time is the stunning new design, including the new bonnet with dynamic lines and 3D LED lighting, plus signature lights, the tractor announces the new look for Case IH tractors of the future.
