Leo Bose, Case IH combine marketing manager. explains, “Our new lineup includes two models in Class VII – the brand new Axial-Flow 7088 and the upgraded 7120. We’re also introducing the new Axial-Flow 9120, the company’s first, and industry’s largest Class IX combine.”
Case IH 88 Series:
The Class VII 7088 Axial-Flow combine is the newest member of the Case IH 88 Series, which is being revamped and expanded in 2009. “Customers told us they wanted to cover more ground in less time, so we’ve given our 88 Series models a ground-up redesign, with styling to match their big brothers in the 20 Series, higher horsepower and more grain tank capacity,” Bose says.
Case IH 88 Series Axial-Flow combine models in 2009 include:
* 5088 (replaces the 2577) – 265 hp, 290 max hp and 250 bushel grain tank capacity
* 6088 (replaces the 2588) – 305 hp, 330 max hp and 300 bushel grain tank capacity
* 7088 – 325 hp, 375 max hp and 300 bushel grain tank capacity
According to the company’s new product announcement, the 5088 and 6088 models are powered by an 8.3L Cummins engine; the 7088 sports a 9.0L Cummins engine. Rounding out the Case IH Axial-Flow combine lineup in 2009 are the 7120 (replaces the 7010), the 8120 (replaces the 8010), and the new Class IX 9120.
According to Bose, “The 5088 and 6088 are designed for customers who want Class V or Class VI productivity, with new styling, controls and instrumentation. The 7088 is for our growers who require increased horsepower for larger headers, or to climb steep hills or power through muddy terrain. Or, if you prefer the Case IH 88 series heritage platform design but need more capacity, the 7088 is for you.”
