  • The Evolution of the Leader

    A pioneer, a benchmark and a leader in the Sugar-Ethanol Industry

    The high performance of Case IH sugarcane harvesters results from over 50 years of product research and development, and significant investments to offer advanced solutions to the sector.

    The technological innovations offered by our harvesters provide not only high productivity and reliability, but also contribute to delivery of a raw material in accordance with industry specifications.

    Case IH is present where agriculture is the most advanced, and has its global plant installed in Piracicaba, Brazil, from where it exports its harvesters to the five continents. The Austoft 9000 Sugarcane harvesters are equipped with the Smart Cruise intelligent engine to optimise fuel consumption for simpler harvesting.

    The Austoft 9000 Sugarcane Harvester incorporates all the reliability of more than 25 years of the Austoft Series with a unique Case IH Technology Package. When harvesting in the most adverse conditions, the simplicity of operation and maintenance, low operating cost and excellence in after-sales service make Case IH the most cost effective option.

  • Technology that Makes Operation, Maintenance and management Easier

    Crush in comfort with best in class visibility, an ergonomically positioned console and intuitive layout of commands. Easily manage and review your operations with the AFS Pro 700 monitor, designed to view up to 12 windows per screen.

  • Effective in the Harshest Conditions

    Featuring 45° crop dividers with a bolted base shoe to reduce the need for welding in the field and increase harvester availability. The rotating toe is designed to reduce the possibility of soil disturbance. The side trim knife (standard) prevents the adjacent stool from being ripped out and contributes to optimised feeding of the basecutter. The side trim knives feature hydraulic adjustment from the cab (optional). Their hydraulic circuits have been changed from series to parallel to ensure greater efficiency, regardless of the power required by the topper.

    The front feed roller has larger fins to provide greater efficiency in guiding and feeding the sugarcane stalks to the basecutter.

    The Auto Tracker, automatic base cut height control (factory-fitted), is the only system on the market that senses basecutter pressure and height to ensure precise, uniform cutting with reduced losses and stool damage.

    The feed roller motors have fewer hoses, to make maintenance easier. Featuring the powerful Extreme Chopper for faster harvesting in plant cane, even in high productivity areas.

  • The topper is equipped with an extended mast that allows cutting of the tops in the tallest sugarcane crops. Its 40% more powerful motor increases productivity in high yield areas.

    The exclusive Antivortex system reduces vegetable impurities and cane loss and increases load density. With it, the power demanded by the primary extractor has been reduced by about 30 hp compared to the conventional system.

    A new structure with a rectangular profile has been developed to support the primary extractor, that is, to increase strength and avoid cracking.

    The secondary extractor, with a 360° turning angle, allows the hood to be directed in any position and allows trash to be thrown away from the transport.

  • Designed to Withstand Impacts and Long Harvest Seasons

    The 9000 series chassis is composed by modular sections joined by screws forming the main chassis. The main structures of the Harvester are also bolted to the main chassis:

    • Upper and Lower hydraulic tank
    • Primary extractor structure
    • Topper Suppor

  • The hydraulic system features intelligent piston pumps with individual electronic controllers that allow exact adjustment of the flow required for each function, without wasting power. The Closed Circuit of the traction system, in addition to the new pumps, also has an electronic fault system, which acts in an emergency situation, increasing the safety of the operation.

    Another New Closed Circuit is the Chopper System, which allows working at higher pressures and smaller engines, contributing to cost reduction and increased hydraulic efficiency.

    Due to the better efficiency of the pumping set for harvesting functions, there is less heat generation, allowing the system to work with lower temperatures in the hydraulic oil, increasing the useful life of the components and reducing fuel consumption.

    Another major evolution of the New Hydraulic System of the Austoft 9000 Sugarcane Harvester is the high abrasion resistant hoses, arranged in an optimised routing, reducing the number of failures during the harvest, and contributing to the reduction of downtime and hydraulic oil consumption.

  • The cooling system includes a radiator cooling package comprised of an engine coolant radiator, intercooler , hydraulic oil radiator, and air conditioning condenser.

    This system is located on the upper part of the harvester, which minimises contact with mineral and vegetable impurities. In addition, the system exerts positive pressure on the engine box, thereby decreasing the entry of impurities. Greater access to the engine is another factor that stands out with this new design.

    Air for radiator ventilation enters through a wide fixed screen, and the fan is hydraulically driven and reversible. To keep the air intake screen clean at all times, the fan is automatically reversed every 20 minutes, expelling all impurities captured in the air intake screen.

    The operator may also reverse the fan through a button in the cab at any time in the event of any irregularities in the engine coolant or hydraulic oil temperatures.

  • The Austoft 9000 Sugarcane Harvester has a variable hydraulic flow combined with automatic controls that adjust harvesting functions based on operating conditions. It optimizes fuel consumption, prevents “chokings” and automatically acts on two levels.

    LEVEL 1 • Increases rpm of harvest functions based on base cutter and chopper rollers pressures.

    LEVEL 2 • If increasing the rpm of the harvesting functions is not sufficient to reduce base cutter and chopper pressures, the ground speed is automatically reduced.

    When base cutter and chopper roller pressures return to normal levels, ground speed automatically increases to the previous setting on cruise control.

  • The Case IH intelligent engine – works by optimising fuel use. Its main benefits are:

    • A reduction in diesel fuel consumption without operational losses.
    • Less stress on the hydraulic system.
    • Less reliance on the operator to adjust the engine speed.
    • Reduces operator fatigue
    • Customers reported fuel consumption savings of up to 26% compared to machines without Smart Cruise.
