Case IH will upgrade its Class V combine offering for the 2005 harvest season with the introduction of the 2377 Axial-Flow combine.
“All of our customers are searching for opportunities to improve their efficiency and performance, but many do not require the significant capacity of our 2388 and AFX8010 offerings,” says Leo Bose, marketing and training manager for Case IH combines.
“The new 2377 will continue the 2300 Series combine tradition of proven performance and reliability, while also providing a capacity advantage compared to its predecessor.”
The new Case IH 2377 combine features an upgraded grain tank capacity of 190 bushels, as well as 7,947 square inches of cleaning system area. In addition, the AFX rotor is now standard equipment.
“Case IH is now able to extend the many advantages of our revolutionary, high-capacity AFX rotor to our 2377 Axial-Flow combine,” Bose explains. “The tougher the conditions, the more pronounced the advantages in terms of throughput capacity, quieter operation, and reduced wear on the threshing components.”
A 250 horsepower Case IH 8.3-liter (505 cubic inch), turbocharged, air-to-air aftercooled engine powers the 2377. In tough conditions, it can deliver a 15 horsepower rise at 2,100 rpms.
The new 2377 Axial-Flow combine continues to build on the principles that led to the development of the first Axial-Flow combine, including:
Delivering superior grain quality;
Maximizing grain savings;
Adapting to all crops;
Offering matched capacity, and
Using a simple, low-maintenance design that retains its value.
