Case IH Introduces Limited-Edition 50 Series Axial-Flow Combine
In celebration of the iconic Axial-Flow combines, Case IH is launching a special-edition 150 series combine as part of the 50 series Axial-Flow lineup. The new machine has both the heritage styling of the International Harvester and technology to help farmers maximize their grain harvest.
The throwback style includes color schemes and decals reminiscent of the first Axial-Flow combine from 1977. The white cab top and tire rims also resemble the features of the older model.
While the outside of the combine resembles a ’70s era machine, underneath the machine is equipped with the latest innovation from Case IH.
“We’re excited to bring back the retro stylings of the 1977 International Harvester Axial-Flow combines, now paired with productivity enhancements desired to help today’s producers harvest more of what they grow,” says Kelly Kravig, Case IH harvesting marketing manager. “For older generation farmers, this combine is a throwback to their earlier farming days. For younger generations, this is the combine they grew up in.”
The new combine includes productivity enhancements such as single-rotor technology, the Cross-Flow cleaning system, and a two-speed electric shift transmission. These features enable the combine to work through a variety of crop types and harvest conditions.
