Case have announced a major cab redesign for all Axial-Flow combine harvesters for 2013.
Though Case already boast the largest and quietest cab on the market, the latest refinements promise even greater comfort and ease. Case’s new ‘office in the field’ is to be available as a standard ‘Deluxe’ cab or top of the range ‘Luxury cab’.
Major tweaks have been made to the handling controls, steering and seating. But what about the all-important accessories and styling?
Most outrageously desirable are the optional “red leather luxury seat” and “brushed chrome” instrument trims. Equally essential, a portable electric refridgerator handily concealed beneath the co-driver’s seat; lunch, anyone?
Naturally, Case wouldn’t dream of leaving out an iPod or iPad port, multiple storage bins and a convenient cup holder.
Should you, whilst reclining on your air-conditioned red leather seating, actually wish to operate your new Axial-Flow combine, Case designers have been busy with the upgrades.
The Multifuntion Propulsion Handle has been slimmed down and redesigned so that all key functions are at the driver’s fingertips. The right-hand console has also been refined with simpler ergonomic controls.
The steering column, now infinitely adjustable, has also been reduced in width to allow the operator greater header visibility.
To allow for greater leg room, the seats have been lowered, and travel increased. The driver’s pedals now include foot pegs.
In introducing these latest improvements, the goal of the Case design team was to bring the environment of a comfortable modern office to the cab of a working combine harvester. Case’s legion of Axial-Flow combine operator’s will certainly reap the benefits next year!
