Case IH awarded for its newly launched LB436HD baler and for its new mixed-fleets connectivity partnership DataConnect / LB436 HD has new and upgraded features including pick-up, driveline, density system and knotter technology / DataConnect enables global mixed-fleet customers to view their machine data in the platform of their choice·


The new LB436 HD baler has been awarded “Machine of the Year 2020” in the category “Hay and Forage”, and DataConnect connectivity solutions in the “Electronics” category during a ceremony held at Agritechnica in Hannover, Germany. The jury, composed of a panel of European agricultural magazine editors, recognized the several benefits of this new baler range, brought by its innovative new features, enabling farmers and contractors to pack more material into every bale, while reducing handling requirements and transport costs. The new connectivity partnership “DataConnect” enables mixed-fleet customers to manage farm, fleet and data more easily.


New baler LB436HD

With new designs and components throughout, the LB436 HD is capable of producing bales with up to 22% greater density than the LB434 XL model, which produces the same 120 x 90cm bale size and remains in the range.


Features unique to the LB436 HD include a new main gearbox and mid-ship gearbox with gearshift overload protection for high power transfer and driveline safety. In addition, an innovative new twine knotter system, named TwinePro, is designed to boost productivity while eliminating field litter and bale contamination. The LB436 HD is fully ISOBUS Class 3 compatible, meaning not only can it be controlled from an ISOBUS terminal in the tractor cab, but the baler can also control the tractor’s actions, such as increasing forward speed in light areas of swaths, to automatically boost workrates.


DataConnect

The joint effort between Case IH, STEYR, New Holland, CLAAS, John Deere and 365FarmNet aims to enable mixed-fleet customers to view their machine data in the platform of their choice. The participating brands have all agreed to enable cloud-to-cloud exchange of machine information (machine location, speed, fuel level, working status) in their competing telematics platforms. This will bring even further benefits to the recently launched Case IH AFS Connect telematics portal.

“The new LB436 HD offers higher density for the same bale size, as well as economic and environmental benefits thanks to its new TwinePro knotter system, while DataConnect brings our customers the freedom they need to manage their mixed-brand fleets with the highest possible efficiency.” says Thierry Panadero, Case IH Vice President Europe.


“The Machine of the Year 2020 awards are a real accolade for our products and solutions, underlining the Case IH focus on solutions for technology-oriented professional producers.”

 

New suspended front axle option brings greater working comfort to Case IH Quantum tractors


Case IH Quantum

Front suspension option for specialty tractor range / Available on·Quantum·V, N and F·models with·cabin, with or without front axle brakes / In-house innovative design / Suspension height·can be set manually from the cab / Four ride modes suit every conditions and applications

A new suspended front axle option is now available for Case IH Quantum tractors, bringing to the specialty tractor sector the same levels of on-road and in-field comfort that operators of larger models in the Case IH range already benefit from, helping to reduce fatigue and increase productivity.


New suspended front axle ·

The new suspended front axle suspension option has been designed by Case IH engineers along similar lines to the established design proven on larger tractors. Utilising a swing arm design connected by a saddle-type pivot, the layout of the suspension system means the structure is particularly robust which ensures no friction is created between the saddle bar and the front axle.


With its pivot center located in a higher position than on alternative systems, the suspension provides higher·levels of rolling comfort. There is +/- 3° of movement at the compression end-stop position, and +/- 8° at all other positions.

 

Suspension height·can be set up manually from the cab, and this also allows any front implement to be attached and adjusted more easily. The system has four ride modes·to suit all applications: locked, soft, medium and hard.

Additional features have been developed in order to further improve the driving experience of the new suspended front axle Quantum models. These include automatic ride height control, which ensures the full travel of the suspension is made available regardless of the load on the front axle.

An anti-dive/squat feature·is designed to maximize tractor stability even when heavy implements are attached, while axle roll control balances the oil flow between the two cushioning cylinders, providing greater stability and comfort in hilly terrain.



Availability of the new features

The new suspended front axle option can be ordered on·Quantum·V, N and F·models specified with a cab, and is available whether the tractor is fitted with front axle brakes. Operation of the front linkage, where specified, is unaffected.
