CASE IH 140 series Axial-Flow combines retain their value better than any combine available – that’s what was determined late last week by North America’s EquipmentWatch, the world leader in data, software and insights for the heavy equipment industry.
EquipmentWatch identified the Case IH 140 series Axial-Flow combine as “an excellent choice for demanding farming needs”, citing features including the Case IH residue management system, an engine that produces up to 332kW (442hp) and a grain tank capacity of 10,570 litres.
The Axial-Flow 140 series came out on top for the EquipmentWatch Highest Retained Value Award which recognises manufacturers in 28 heavy equipment categories for products that show the highest retained value over the last five years.
It is the only industry benchmark that relies on data-driven residual values to confirm and project an asset’s value, providing an evaluation point and greater confidence for customers in new and used equipment purchases.
Released in Australia in 2015, the Case IH 140 series Axial-Flow has had further product enhancements announced last year, which included:
- New Cross Flow™ cleaning system – allowing the cleaning efficiency of the machine to be maintained even on side slopes
- New residue management system – giving better control of the residue from the cab (speed and direction)
- New style concaves – more and lighter in weight (6 v’s 3)
- New Clean Out doors – full width sliding doors to make clean down when changing varieties or locations easier
- New two speed electronic shift transmission – better harvesting speeds with less strain
- Pivoting spout on all Axial-Flow combines – better control of grain when unloading
