The tractors are positioned as being easy to operate and configured for versatility, with a standard three-point hitch that has a lift capacity of up to 7,200 lbs.

2. 25th Anniversary Edition Magnum tractor
Case IH’s revamped replica of the first Magnum row-crop tractor launched in 1987, after the merger of J.I. Case and International Harvester.

Today’s models are streamlined and equipped with the latest technologies such as automated steering, CVT transmissions, and centralized operator controls. Suggested list price for the 290-PTO-hp Magnum 340: $320,000.
3. Case IH Twin-Row planter
This new line of twin-row planters, an expansion of the company’s existing Early Riser planter lineup, is the result of a supplier agreement with Great Plains Manufacturing. The planters let you increase plant populations without having to invest or modify existing harvesting or spraying equipment. Seed is staggered in two rows, eight inches apart, on 30-in., 36-in., 38-in. or 40-in. centers to match the width of the combine header. The planters can be used in corn, soybeans, cotton, milo and sunflowers. Suggested list price: $212,000 for 16-row.
4. Case IH LB4 large square balers
A revamp of Case IH’s LB3 Series, now featuring up to a 20% capacity-increase, larger flywheel to handle uneven windrows, a new high-capacity pickup, and a new curved design that more easily sheds debris. The new baler, made tough enough to handle biomass crops, comes in two models and six configurations. Suggested list price: $149,265.
5. Titan 30 series floaters
New series of fertilizer and chemical applicators that offers 8 to 9 percent more hp and better fuel efficiency than the previous Titan series floaters. The floaters, available in a 330- or 400-hp model, sport a redesigned Surveyor cab with more room and centralized controls, and a rugged frame to perform in tough crop conditions. Suggested list price: $202,194-$231,006
