The Austoft 4000 is smaller in size compared to conventional models and is easy to move between cane fields. Designed with the same functional concept as the A7000 Series harvesters, many of its parts are interchangeable with other Case IH sugarcane harvester models. This characteristic significantly increases the machine’s cost-benefit.

Explore the Features
Working in row spacings from 1.2 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 manoeuvrability 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.
Designed for maximum performance, the Austoft 4000 demonstrates its versatility by harvesting both in sugarcane fields with reduced spacings of 1.2 meters as well as in sugarcane fields with wider row spacings up to 1.5 meters. By harvesting in row spacings, the Austoft 4000 becomes a superb option for cane growers who want to harvest mechanically, as well as big plantations where the Austoft 4000 can harvest short rows and/or low productivity soils. This frees the bigger volume harvesters like the Austoft 8010 series in order to harvest to their full daily harvest capacity, representing a significant gain in machine productivity.
The Austoft 4000 was designed to make maintenance simple. The engine, hydraulic system, and industrial components are easily accessible, streamlining the machine preventive maintenance, which in turn increases the machine’s availability.
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.
Larger radiator, higher cooling capacity, longer lifespan.
Added USB charging port for operator convenience and improved communication.
Windscreen protector preventing damage from the cane.
Elevator cane flap to reduce spillage.
Larger rear wheels, improved stability, reduced compaction.
Optional eView™ operating rear cameras. Located on the sides of the cab roof for monitoring the elevator and can be easily monitored from a screen in the cab.
Two speeds engine cooling fan.
Optional Topper Extension and DIA KIT increases cleaning capability.
Extractor cleaning system
New 4 blades extractor cleaning system - The Case IH exclusive Antivortex system reduces vegetable impurities and cane loss and increases load density. With it, the power demanded by the extractor has been reduced compared to a conventional system, reducing vibrations and fuel consumption.
