The 2017 survey of Combine harvesters has identified the Case IH’s 140 series Axial-Flow combine as the models with the highest retained value.
According to results from the survey, notable advantages included the Case IH residue management system built to handle tough residue associated with current crop genetics, an engine that produces up to 325kW (442hp) and a grain tank capacity of 10,570-litres.
The Axial-Flow 140 series came out on top in the survey when measured against competitor series’ – these included the John Deere S600, New Holland CR, Claas Lexion, Gleaner S9, Gleaner S8 and Massey Ferguson 9500. The award recognised products that showed 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 Combine buyers in new and used equipment purchases.
Released into our local market in 2015, the Case IH 140 series Axial-Flow has been well supported for sales here. Further product enhancements were announced in 2016 that included a Cross Flow cleaning system that allowed cleaning efficiency to be maintained even on side slopes.
There was also an upgrade to the residue management system – giving better control of the residue from the cab both for speed and direction. Another well received upgrade was a two speed electronic shift transmission that afforded better harvesting speeds with less strain.
