The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) awarded two AE50 recognitions to Case IH for outstanding agricultural innovations. The awarded Early Riser 2150S front-fold split-row planter and Steiger series tractor three-point hitch system, highlight how Case IH equipment and technology help farmers achieve maximum productivity.
“Case IH is and will continue to combine the world’s best and agronomically superior iron with industry-leading, cutting-edge technology,” said Scott Harris, Case IH global president. “We are proud to receive this recognition from the ASABE. This is one of the many ways we remain committed to our brand promise, to make farmers’ lives easier, make their operations more productive and help them thrive.”
Annually, ASABE distinguishes the 50 most significant product innovations in engineering and technology for agricultural, food and biological systems. The honor recognizes products that save producers time and reduce costs and labor, all while improving user safety. The awards were presented at the ASABE Agricultural Equipment Technology Conference (AETC) on February 12.
Early Riser 2150S front-fold split-row planters
The Case IH Early Riser 2150S offers a 50-inch split-row offset (front to back) design, maximizing residue flow and minimizing residue plugging. A combination of 16-inch total row unit travel, 30-degree total wing flex, in-cab adjustable hydraulic wing downforce, patent-pending in-cab adjustable hydraulic rear sub-frame downforce and automated hydraulic per row unit downforce result in accurate row unit ground-following, seed placement and seed depth in challenging field topography. The 525-gallon liquid fertilizer capacity, 100-bushel seed capacity and 10 mph high speed planting capability maximizes in-field productivity (for a 30- to 40-foot Split-Row Planter with carrying wheels between the rows). Rear camera and individual seed tank scale options increase productivity and safety. Nearly all settings can be made from the cab, including tool-less conversion from 15- to 30-inch row spacing.
Steiger series tractor three-point hitch system
Maximize the power and lift capacity of wide-frame Steiger series tractors with the new three-point hitch system. Delivering up to 620 horsepower, this innovation brings the extra muscle needed to tackle almost any job. Dig, haul and plow through any obstacle with a 20,000-pound lift capacity and increased maximum lift height.
