NEW MID-HORSEPOWER SERIES TRACTORS
Case IH has revamped its multi-purpose, mid-horsepower tractor line with the launch of eight new Maxxum Series tractors for 2007.
New Maxxum models offer 4.5- or 6.7-liter Case IH engines, Tier 3 emission certified from 90 to 120 PTO hp.
“All five Maxxum Pro models — the 110 Pro, 120 Pro, 125 Pro, 130 Pro and 140 Pro — are fully loaded with deluxe features to boost productivity,” says Tom Dean, marketing manager for mid-horsepower tractors. The Maxxum Pro configurations are built with an efficient Case IH four-valve-per-cylinder common rail electronic engine. The electronic engine allows PTO and transport power boost of up to 25 hp, along with the fuel-saving constant engine RPM feature as standard.
Three additional Case IH Maxxum models — the Maxxum 110, Maxxum 115 and Maxxum 125 — are geared toward versatility, productivity and value.
Operators have a choice of ROPS or standard cab, and 2WD or MFD (mechanical front drive).
NEW CHISEL PLOW LINES
AGCO announces the new AGCO Sunflower 4213 Series and 4233 Series chisel plow lines. The new tillage tools are built with ultra high molecular weight (UHMW) material in rocker shafts and lift assemblies. Other features include a depth gauge for hydraulically controlled coulter gangs and shank placement/spacing for smooth residue flow.
The Sunflower 4213 chisel plow can fracture soil compaction up to 12-14 in. deep. It's available with 7, 9, 11, 13 or 15 shanks with cutting and transfer widths of 8 ft. 9 in. to 18 ft. 9 in. All five models share 15-in. spacing on the shanks and 7½-in. spacing on the 20-in. coulter blades. Dirt and residue clearing trash bars are mounted between coulter blades.
The Sunflower 4233 chisel plow has cutting widths of 21 ft. 3 in. to 28 ft. 9 in., which share a common transport width of only 14 ft. 6 in., due to the three-section design. It is available with 17, 19, 21 or 23 shanks.
