17 Dec 2021
Australian and New Zealand farmers will soon have another option when it comes to draper headers, following the announcement of a new partnership between Case IH and MacDon Industries Ltd.
The co-branded draper headers designed for Case IH Axial-Flow® combines will be available for order worldwide next year, with Australian and New Zealand customers able to order through their local dealers late in 2022, with delivery in time for the following year's harvest.
Case IH ANZ General Manager Pete McCann, said the new partnership was aimed at delivering an industry-leading harvesting package for producers.
"Case IH and MacDon have always strived to bring greater efficiencies and productivity to the agriculture industry and we're looking forward to what this new arrangement can offer our customers," he said. "The collaboration is an exciting new chapter in Case IH's Hay and Harvest product offering, and we believe it gives farmers a high-efficiency draper header-combine solution that will make harvesting easier, and more profitable for local farming businesses."
