The new International Machinery Manufacturer’s Awards (IMMA) reward companies that have produced machines that show particular innovation, effectiveness and value.
The Axial-Flow 9230 is a single rotor machine with the highest-available capacity, dual control unloading system. The judges highlighted the innovative pivoting auger spout, and "a 10.4 folding unloading auger allowing adoption of a true 12 metre control traffic system". This complements the 9230’s 41 foot /12m cut header option - currently the widest in the UK. Organised by the Cereals Event, the awards are supported by the Agricultural Engineers’ Association, The Institution of Agricultural Engineers, The Royal Agricultural University and Farmers Weekly, and were presented at an awards ceremony on 11th June. On receiving the award, Charles Blessley, Marketing Manager, Case IH UK and Ireland said, "We are delighted to have won this prestigious award for the Axial-Flow 230 series. The award confirms Case IH’s position at the leading edge of agricultural machinery development and demonstrates our commitment to new technology, value and effectiveness".
