Case IH's Accustar II System earns award

RACINE, Wis. - The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers has consistently recognized Case IH for its excellence in agricultural equipment design. This year, these three Case IH products received ASABE's prestigious AE50 award:...

  • The Module Express 625 Cotton Harvester, the first commercial cotton picker with the ability to build modules while harvesting.
  • AFS Cotton Yield Monitor, an option on the new Module Express 625 that provides precise, real-time cotton flow information.
  • Steiger® AccuSteer™ II System, delivering the industry's tightest-turning four-wheel-drive tractors.

"These awards demonstrate how Case IH continues to serve our customers' needs by offering industry leading, productive equipment," says Jim Walker, Case IH Vice President of North America. "We offer a line of powerful and reliable equipment with features that help our customers maximize their profitability."
Annually, the AE50 awards recognize the best products introduced the previous year in the agricultural, food and biological systems industries. A panel of ASABE experts selects the top products from around the world, ranking them based on commercial impact, contributions to agriculture and engineering and advancements in engineering and technological significance.

The Steiger® AccuSteer™ II Systemsystem makes the Case IH Steiger row-crop models the industry's first precision-steerable four-wheel-drive tractors by allowing the front frame to pivot independent of the rear. The intuitive steering control allows the operator to turn the tractor, and at the end of the 10-degree pivot, the tractor automatically begins articulation. The result is a tight turning radius of just 12.4 feet to tractor centerline and easy turns at the end of rows.
