Case IH announces new Class V combine

Slated to be ready in time for the 2005 harvest season, the 2377 Axial-Flow combine will be the new Class V offering from Case IH.

The 2377 is a continuation of the 2300 series. This new model will improve upon the 2366 with upgraded grain tank capacity of 190 bu. and 7,947 sq. in. of cleaning system area. In addition, the new model will include an AFX rotor as standard equipment.

The high-capacity AFX rotor has been an engineering success for Case IH, showing significantly increased throughput capacity, quieter operation and reduced wear on threshing components. Farmers report the greatest performance difference with the rotor during tough harvesting conditions.

The 2377 will have a Case IH 250-hp, 8.3-l (505-cu.-in.), turbocharged, air-to-air aftercooled engine. It can deliver a 15-hp rise at 2,100 rpms.
