Three new harvesters, which constitute axial series 250 only started to work them in an effort to maximize operator efficiency and crop quality.

New model 7250, 8250 and 9250 to replace the Case IH 240 series and will go into production in October this year, ready for use for the harvest of 2019.

There were several new automatic features added in the 250 series, which the manufacturer says will allow operators that they are driving the combine at maximum efficiency while ensuring quality of grain is also the best it can be.

Replacement 7240, 8240 and 9240 models old series 240, 250 series will be devoted to a more automated parameter changes when different conditions of the crop during harvest.

Sam Acker, case IH, global Manager for flagship combines, said that the new machine will be ready for most markets ahead of the 2019 season.

He said: “the proceedings of the case IH axial-250 series combines will begin in October of this year in time to have a car ready for global harvest in 2019.

“USA, Canada and UK markets will also receive the 250 series machines ready for work in the next year,” he said.

August von Eckardstein, case IH harvesting Manager of product marketing for Europe, Middle East and Africa, said: “the 250 series Axial the updates are focused on improving how to combine and operator performance.

Cotter agri Manufacturing Ltd is a family run outfit with experience 52 years based in Cappoquinn, County Waterford. The business was originally created by John Kotter and son John Kieran manages the operation. They work up to 10 employees during peak season.

“Our goal was to help decision-making and to make front-to-rear configuration easier for some desired result. Thus, the plant can not only enhance the productivity of an experienced operator, but can help a less experienced one to quickly gain confidence and get the most from the car.”

Automated sensors to take

One of the major changes for the new series 250 is a totally new technology in the afs team of automation, which uses 16 sensor inputs to constantly monitor the machine, and adjust seven different settings to achieve maximum performance of the processor.

Full AFS collection pack automation team also has a new in-cab pre-sieve adjustment.

Operators can manage this new technology in the cab, AFS Pro700 terminal. Currently, the automation system able to work in wheat, rapeseed/canola, corn and soybeans.

A few selections based on crop type and conditions allow the operator to adjust the machine to accomplish the desired result.

There are several options on the AFS team of the crop depending on operator experience, condition of crops and the types and harvesting conditions.

The basic version of the team harvest the AFS has automatic crop settings (ACS). It regulates the elements, such as fan speed and concave clearance depending on the type of crops selected on the terminal screen AFS, eliminating the need to make individual settings of the item.


The operator has the ability to adjust the combine on the go and save the settings for future use.

New 6.1-tonne lifting capacity is provided by the largest axis of the model, allowing them to handle the leaders of 13.5 m.

The next version, with control of the feed rate, adjust the speed depending on the load on the yields to the desired result, management efficiency losses, maximum bandwidth, or a fixed bandwidth.

The operator sets the targets maximum engine load and speed, and control the feed rate will work up to those limits. The new control system feed speed more accurate speed control based on plants and ground loads. The control of the feed rate that can be used as stand-alone functions, works on all types of crops.

The top variant, the Specification is complete, the AFS command automation of the harvest, which automatically makes threshing and cleaning adjustment system based on the same desired results and flow monitoring, with the addition of quality control of grain.

It uses camera-based technology and sensing a pressure sieve in order to provide further guidance in the process of automatic control of the machine to minimize impurities in the sample of grain and to keep the best quality grain trait for which Axial combine earned its reputation.

Lotting way to reduce the contamination of soils from compaction

The first pass of the ship through the field creates the most grip through the soil profile under the wheels/tracks.

Any way in which farmers can minimize the passage of further actions beyond those paths may significantly limit further damage to the soil and should not be difficult or costly to achieve.

That was the message from specialist precision farming

Ian Beecher-Jones, who talks about some of the measures farmers can take to minimize the risk of damage to soil structure, and evaluate

and repair existing problems, in the case of the 2018 launch them in Dresden.

Small improvements in management practices can have a broad impact on savings, said Mr. Beecher Jones, who leads the global precision farming consulting business.

“The soil type does not play a big role, and most of all suffered in one form or another, while studies show a measurable financial impact, the cost of establishing the crop and yield reduction in traffic and subsequent compaction.”

Prevent the creation of seal is preferable and cheaper than its decision.

“To fix the problems and maintain the structure, natural and mechanical means can help. Promote populations of earthworms and the use of cover crops are examples of natural remedies.

“Mechanically, the auto-steering system based on rtk signal with its 2.5 cm repeatable accuracy means the reduction of ground-level take out in the field does not have to be a complicated process, requiring a high level of additional investment.

“Farmers should consider the best field to minimize traffic, especially at harvest and transport crops.

“But at other times of the year they should not be afraid to be flexible in order to reduce traffic in a practical way that fits their system the best.

“If, in some years the wet season, or when not combinable crops in the rotation, for example – it is not possible to precisely follow the previous line, it’s not the end of the world. Reduce traffic as much as possible, with time still bring enormous benefits,” said Mr. Beecher Jones.

The same is true if the land should be at an angle or should be plowed for weed seed burial or restructuring of the soil, he said.

Such processes can take controlled movement a step back, but if they are necessary to improve agricultural techniques, the farmers should not fear that.

“It is important that all operations, traffic should be minimized over time. Only in the same way, where possible, that means taking into account the influence on these paths.

“Maybe tractor tires with narrower, more contours, help to spread the weight better, and those equipped is operated at the best pressure for this task?

“ This tractor is balanced to minimize wheel spin? The best alignment option based on the type of soil and working conditions? And is it possible to change the track width of the tractors in the farm so they are as close as possible match? Any marginal gains ultimately benefit.”

The process of harvesting has a significant impact on the ground in the next year, he concluded.

Studying maps of the crop show a strong correlation between low levels of yield and areas of soil compaction, but the collection methods themselves can have a big impact on damaging the soil before the next crop.

“Full CTF system does not need to provide tractors is carefully thought out during loading,” continued Mr. Beecher Jones.

“Unloading augers provide extra throw of their ultimate parts can help here. And given, tracked the front-wheel drive can help keep the weight of the plant in the smaller, narrower strips.

“Finally, if you combine can not be replaced in the near future, but its working width is not satisfied with an abbreviated transportation plan, replacing a single Title may be considered as a relatively low cost option for those who are looking for results soon.”
