Case IH has increased its range of machines that use biofuels to include the B100, otherwise known as pure biodiesel to include many more pieces of farm equipments in every country Case IH announced recently. Case IH has now made it possible for farmers using medium to high horsepower tractors, windrowers and most self-propelled sprayers and cotton pickers, as well as Case combine harvesters. The use of B100 or pure biodiesel for the Case combine harvester is a huge step forward to reduce harvesting costs for farmers with the ever increasing cost of fuel prices. Case IH said the same protocols and engine operation and maintenance procedures are very important in order to keep productivity high and Case combine harvesters running smoothly.
Case IH director of tractor product management Don Reiser said, With record prices for crude oil, Case IH committed to exploring better ways to use environmentally-friendly biofuels made from renewable raw materials. We have conducted rigorous laboratory and in-field tests to evaluate how our engines perform with various biodiesel blends. Rieser said that Case IH combine harvester dealers are trained to provide information and help with the guidelines for using biodiesel fuels in the extended family of biodiesel Case IH equipment. Case IH dealers can provide customers help with biodisel approvals and technical requirements as well as recommended practices that include sourcing pre-blended biodiesel from reliable suppliers. Case IH combine harvester dealers can also provide support for following proper filter and oil change intervals and with some equipment installing special parts to help the equipment use a higher percentage of biodiesel. Don Riser said, We also are committed to educating our dealers and customers on how to get the best results with biodiesel fuels.
