Case IH and its South African distributor, Northmec, showcased the brand’s full line of agricultural solutions at the Nampo 2017, the largest show of agricultural machinery in Africa and the Middle East. In this edition of the show Case IH, which has earned a justified reputation as the specialist in tracked drive systems for high-output machinery, has dedicated particular focus to its offering of tracked equipment.
Jacques Coetzee, Product Manager Case IH at Northmec, is very pleased with the outcome of the event in South Africa: “The Nampo show is always a great opportunity for us to meet customers from across the region, discuss their requirements and show them how we can help their business. This year was no exception: our stand was crowded with visitors throughout the duration of the show. Our new Axial-Flow® flagship combine harvester on tracks and brand new SPX sprayer attracted a lot of attention. The exhibition was definitely a success for Case IH.”
Case IH’s extensive tractor offering on display
The impressive display highlighted the extensive tractor offering, with models ranging from the 35-75hp simple and economical JXT, the 80-90hp Farmall JXM, the 90-110 hp Farmall JX, the 125-141 hp Maxxum, the multi-purpose 142-225 hp Puma, the proven 250-340 hp Magnum and Magnum CVT, all the way up to the mighty 608 hp Steiger 600.
Case IH also showcased its tractors featuring track technology, highlighting its benefits: greater ground contact, increased traction, reduced ground pressure, and less ground disturbance when turning. On display were the Magnum Rowtrac, the Magnum CVT Rowtrac, and the top-of-the-range Quadtrac 600, which has established itself firmly as the leader among high-hp tractors for traction, flotation and a narrow transport width.
New Axial-Flow® 9240 features Case IH unique tracked drive technology
Case IH presented its new flagship combine, the Axial-Flow® 9240, which raises the bar on capacity and productivity. It features the brand’s proven Axial-Flow® single rotor technology that revolutionised combine harvesting for its simplicity, grain quality, grain savings and crop adaptability. This combine also stands out for its exceptional flotation due to the proven Case IH track system, which adapts to uneven ground thanks to the free movement of the single suspension cylinder. As a result, ground pressure is even across the track surface. In addition the suspended track drastically reduces ground pressure and consequently soil damage, and the combine is able to operate even in soft soil conditions.
First public appearance for the new SPX 250 sprayer
The Nampo show also saw the launch of the new Patriot SPX250 sprayer, which expands the offering to four models. The smallest of the range, the SPX 250 features a 167hp engine, a 2,500 litre tank, and boom width ranging from 24 to 27 metres. It has the highest clearance in its class, and delivers the high quality performance, accuracy and efficiency of the bigger models.
