The NeXt generation AFX Axial-Flow combines will be lead by a class 8 combine model number AFX 8010
In the year 2004 CaseIH will unveil its all new AFX combine line. It will replace the popular 2300 series. With 171 years of harvesting experience behind it CaseIH has developed an Axial-Flow combine to meet the demands of farmers in the 21st century. The AFX Series will offer exceptional performance. Improvements include the new AFX rotor, less belts and chains, more hydraulics and an inverted rotary air screen which gives engine a natural air flow, electronic controlled sieves and screens (programmable), all new cab, longer feeder house, bigger elevators, augers, as well as new updated cosmetics. These machines deliver more horsepower, more productivity and more comfort than ever before. There are only 2 belts and two chains on the machine all hydraulic rotor drive is hydraulic with reverser. The 8010 is reported to max out at 525 hp and is hooked up electronically to the rotor drive. So in tougher crops the engine will up the hp and in easier crops the hp will drop off to conserve fuel. The AFX will be produced along with New Holland's CR combine with Twin-Rotor technology in Grand Island, Nebraska. The AFX combines will share common parts with the New Holland CR combine including the durable CNH frame, large grain tank from 205 to 330 bushels with foldable extensions and an industry leading 3 bushels per-second unloading rate from an auger that can accommodate heads up to 42ft. From their the new AFX is all CaseIH. The AFX Series combines still share a number of proven design elements with the original Axial-Flow introduced in 1977. The CaseIH AFX cab will make a 2300 owner feel right at home with the familiar features. Axial-Flow combines use a single rotor to thresh and separate grain, and create a vacuum of air that helps provide a clean operating environment. Conventional combines use up to 16 moving parts to do the same job. Because Axial-Flow combines use fewer moving parts, they are easier to operate, more reliable and less costly to maintain than conventional or more complex rotary designs Inside the new CaseIH combines. The new AFX rotor uses enhanced graduated pitch impellers to promote smooth crop flow and increase rotor throughput capacity in tough conditions by 5 to 25 percent. The top new CaseIH combine will likely be an AFX 8010, it will be a class 8 combine with around 370hp and a 330 bu hopper cable of handling up to 42 ft of header.
