Designed in the USA, Axial-Flow 4000 Series combines harvesters are built at parent company CNH Industrial’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Harbin, China. Compact dimensions, operator comfort and advanced features are combined with high harvesting capacity, thorough crop threshing, low grain losses, gentle grain handling and unsurpassed sample quality. These benefits are characteristic of Case IH Axial-Flow single-rotor technology, which has become the benchmark for harvesting quality and performance since the first Axial-Flow combines were launched in the USA in 1977.
The integrated straw chopper, which is standard, features two rows of knives in a 2 x 14 configuration to provide optimum residue performance. The proven horizontal, twin-disc spreader with two-speed spread control evenly distributes chopped material on the field for optimum integration into the soil. Customers who wish to bale straw can specify the optional straw beater for perfect bale processing and optimum density.
To optimise their performance potential, Axial-Flow® 4000 Series combines are fitted with a spacious, comfortable cab which incorporates over 3.74m2 of glass area, providing the operator with a panoramic view and excellent visibility over the header. Operator comfort is enhanced by the A-pillar monitor, ergonomic control layout and suspended, individually adjustable seat, together with a high-capacity air filter and the standard heating/ventilation system. Air conditioning can be specified as an option to provide the ultimate in-cab environment.
All two-wheel-drive 4000 Series models are equipped with 28L-26R1W 16PR front tyres and 14.9R24 R1W 12PR rear tyres. Four-wheel-drive versions include 28L-26 R1W 16PR front and 16.9-26 R1W 12PR rear tyres, while four-wheel-drive ‘Rice’ models are fitted with 28L-26 R2 16PR front and 16.9-26 R2 12PR rear tyres.
Because of their mechanical simplicity, Axial-Flow® combines incorporate fewer moving parts than either conventional designs or more complex rotary and hybrid machines, so they are simpler to operate, more reliable and less costly to maintain. All service points on the new 4000 Series models can be reached from the ground or a single step, so routine maintenance is easier, faster, cheaper and safer than with other types of combine, resulting in more time spent harvesting and higher output potential.
