The largest combine in the series, the Axial-Flow 9240, is rated for 550 horsepower. It has a 54-inch feeder width and 410-bushel grain tank capacity. It also has a larger cleaning system, faster unload times and greater range of rotor speeds than the 5140. The larger combines are available with optional 30- or 36-inch-wide rubber tracks to minimize soil disturbance and compression.
Case IH designed its latest combine series to offer improved fuel efficiency, comfort, visibility, simplified maintenance and higher grain quality, while meeting stricter emissions requirements. The Axial-Flow line utilizes a single rotor, so it has fewer moving parts and longer service intervals than its competitors. Additionally, the series features larger-capacity grain tanks, longer unloading augers and faster unload times than previous models.
Each combine comes with automatic crop settings and sieve controls, which can be adjusted from inside the cab. Case IH also sells five different header attachments. With all available modifications, the Axial-Flow series can adapt to 134 types of grain.
