Pioneering, reference and leadership in the sugar market
The Austoft 4000 Sugarcane Harvester represents once again the pioneering spirit of Case IH. Working in row spacings from 1.0 and 1.1 meters this harvester is narrow enough to harvest one row without compacting the root zone of the adjacent cane row. It is compact, light, has excellent maneuverability and an excellent base cut resulting in reduced cane loss and increased productivity in subsequent ratoon crops. The Austoft 4000 is designed to harvest crops up to 85 tons per hectare.
More versatility wit the Austoft 4000 Sugarcane Harvester
Designed for maximum performance, the Austoft 4000 demonstrates its versatility by harvesting both in sugarcane fields with reduced spacings of 1.0 and 1.1 meters as well as in sugarcane fields with wider row spacings up to 1.5 meters. By harvesting in all of these row spacings, the Austoft 4000 becomes a superb option for those cane growers who need or wish to start harvesting mechanically, or for big plantation areas where the Austoft 4000 can harvest short rows and or low productivity soils, freeing the bigger volume harvesters like the Austoft 8000 series, in order to harvest to their full daily harvest capacity. This represents a significant gain in machine productivity.
The Austoft 4000 is smaller in size compared to the conventional models, and is easy to move between cane fields. The Austoft 4000 was designed with the same functional concept as the A7000 Series harvesters. Because of this, many of its parts are interchangeable with other models of Case IH sugarcane harvesters. This characteristic significantly increases the machine’s cost-benefit.
Easy & fast to service
The Austoft 4000 was designed to make maintenance simple. The engine, hydraulic system, and industrial components are easily accessible, streamlining the machine preventive maintenance, increasing the machine’s availability.
Confort for the operator
For greater productivity, the Austoft 4000 has operator comfort, good visibility, and operational ease for the operator. The controls are ergonomically positioned to ensure convenience and functionality for the operator during the long working hours.
