Case IH expands B100 biodiesel use in equipment

Agriculture.com Staff 12/05/2007 @ 8:30am

Farmers can now use B100 (or pure biodiesel) on nearly all Case IH medium- to high-horsepower tractors, combines, windrowers, and most self-propelled sprayers and cotton pickers as long as proper protocols are followed for engine operation and maintenance.

New approvals for use of B100 apply to Case IH JX Series, JXC Series, JXN Series and JXU Series tractors, as well as the full-line up of Maxxum, Puma and Magnum tractors, including the new Magnum 335. All new Steiger tractors are also approved for B100, except the highest horsepower model, the Steiger 535. Other Case IH models okayed for B100 are the new Module Express 625 module-building cotton picker and SPX3320 and SPX4420 self-propelled sprayers.

If customers have questions about use, Case IH dealers are knowledgeable about guidelines for using biodiesel fuels in Case IH equipment and can advise farmers on biodiesel approvals and technical requirements.

To find out more, visit the Case IH Web site to check biodiesel approvals and requirements at www.caseih.com and look for the special Biodiesel Ready logo.
