What's ahead for combines in 2013

Model year 2012 was a huge year for new combine introductions, as manufacturers were under the gun to meet Tier 4i emissions deadlines with new, cleaner-burning engines. AGCO, Case IH, Claas, John Deere and New Holland all came out with their own spin on how to meet emissions requirements while at the same time packing more power, capacity and features into their new model lineups.

This year, Challenger and newcomer Versatile launched even more models, new for 2013. Remaining players have upgraded their existing lineups and introduced new features, including telemetry, cab-controlled grain tank extensions, heated/cooled seats and active refrigerators.

Here’s your all-in-one scorecard of what’s new in combines for 2013 to aid you in the purchase of your next combine.
