Cutting-edge cotton harvester rolls off assembly line

Agriculture.com Staff 07/08/2010 @ 11:00pm

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.
