Case IH Launchs AFS Support Centre

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

Case IH Advanced Farming Systems® (AFS) customers will see an added level of support for their precision farming investment. The new AFS Support Centre provides 24/7/365 access to service and support for everything from monitors, to guidance technology, to receivers, to section control. This additional support will help Case IH customers stay on the leading edge of technology while also minimizing downtime and offering solutions around the clock.

“In cooperation with Case IH dealers, the AFS Support Centre will provide the new level of support required by today’s advanced technologies,” says Uli Sommer, Case IH AFS Marketing Manager. “Now, when a customer calls his country specific AFS Support Centre phone number, he will be connected to a local language speaking AFS support engineer who is dedicated to putting precision farming technologies to work in conjunction with Case IH equipment.”

The AFS Support Centre will further supplement the quality AFS services offered through dealerships by providing highly-trained support engineers with quick access to additional resources. These support engineers will be able to tackle particularly complex issues and will be fully integrated with a centralised knowledge database. Also, product engineers are literally on-hand for additional support and knowledge.

“The AFS Support Centre’s ability to assist with in-field support and coordinate with the service provided through dealerships will give Case IH customers an extended team of experts,” says Sommer. “This ‘one-stop shop’ allows the AFS Support Centre and the technical support staff at dealerships to “own” all issues through to resolution. Real-time data on product issues, trends and analysis are supplemental benefits.”

Case IH Farmall A Tractor Range

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

The new seven-strong Farmall A range will makes its debut to UK and Irish customers at the respective grassland events. The range extends from the 55hp Farmall 55A to the 115hp Farmall 115A tractor.
Farmall 55A – the farmyard specialist
Farmall 55A is a new 55hp single specification tractor open station tractor. Standard specification is an 8×8 synchro transmission with left hand mechanical shuttle enabling quick and easy direction changes in shuttle type operations. Standard equipment also includes one rear double-acting remote valve and 540 rpm pto.
Whilst these tractors are designed primarily for working in and around yards and livestock buildings, the rugged and robust construction also makes the tractor very capable in a support role within many other environments. Available in either 2wd or 4wd, these tractors are equipped with an easy access spacious, comfortable operator’s platform.
A folding roll over protection is also part of the standard equipment. When folded this allows the tractor to access areas with a door height of 2m.
Farmall 65A, 75A, 85A, 95A, 105A, 115A – for farmyard and field
Farmall A, which supersedes JX range, brings new features, an increase in power, two additional higher powered models and a new ergonomically designed cab. These six new models which span the 65 – 115hp range are all available in 4wd.
Standard specification on Farmall 65A, 75A, 85A, 95A is a 12 x 12 mechanical shuttle, while the Farmall 105A and 115A benefit from a 12 x 12 powershuttle. In addition, the powershuttle is available as an option on Farmall 85A and 95A.
Internally the ergonomics of the cab have been given a complete overhaul with remote valve levers, hand throttle and rear 3-point hitch control relocated to improve the simplicity of operation. The heating and ventilation unit is now relocated to the rear of the cab to improve the feeling of spaciousness and enable a high visibility panel to be incorporated into the roof. This optional high visibility panel will be especially valuable for front loader operations enabling drivers to keep the loader in view when stacking bales or operating in low roof buildings.
Farmall 65A and 75A are ideally suited to perform the support role on large livestock units whether operating yard scrapers or powering straw choppers. The Farmall 85A and 95A combine power with economy and make ideal loader tractors, while the extra power available from the Farmall 105A and 115A makes these tractors ideally suited for high pto power tasks like operating diet feeder wagons.
Outside of the farmyard these tractors will play an important role in transport, slurry / manure spreading, fertiliser application, silage making and a variety of other field operations. Maximum rear lift capacity is an impressive 3,565kg and up to three rear remote valves can be specified.
