Cutting-edge cotton harvester rolls off assembly line

The Case IH Module Express 625, the first module building
picker, will hit the fields in time for the 2007 cotton harvest. The machine
allows producers to combine cotton harvesting and module building in a single
operation.

The module utilizes an environmentally-friendly, 16-foot
tarp to protect bales from weather damage. Tarps are made of a reusable
material to eliminate the risk of contaminating the finished product. In
addition, the 365-hp. machine has a longer wheelbase than most traditional
pickers for optimum front-to-rear machine balance. Low-inflation front dual
tires and large steering tires leave a minimal footprint in the row.
