New Case IH Titan 30 Series floaters
Case IH introduced its new Titan 30 Series floaters to its Efficient Power family. These floaters are more both more powerful and more efficient than previous models and feature the newly redesigned Surveyor cab with accurate controls to help producers maximize inputs.
“The enhanced performance and efficiency of Titan 30 Series floaters means operators can cover more acres with less fuel,” says Ken Lehmann, Case IH Application Equipment Sales and Marketing Manager. “With improved ruggedness and efficiency, these floaters are designed to perform in tough conditions.”
More Horsepower & Increased Fuel Efficiency
Titan 30 Series floaters are available in four configurations, with three- or four-wheels and the option of 330 or 400 horsepower. These floaters also feature the new Case IH FPT 8.7-liter engine, offering 8 to 9 percent more horsepower than previous models. The diesel engines are designed to handle heavy engine loads while delivering optimum fuel efficiency and meeting Tier 4 standards.
Case IH’s Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) emissions solution operates outside the engine, allowing the engine to be tuned for maximum power and performance while still achieving compliance. This simple design also leads to improved fuel economy and engine durability.
“These machines meet all professional applicators’ qualifications: increased power, better fuel efficiency and maximized inputs,” says Lehmann.
More Comfortable Cab & Easier Controls
Because operators are often in the field for long days and even longer nights, comfort is of utmost importance. That’s why Case IH Titan 30 Series floaters are equipped to help operators work more hours without efficiency-robbing fatigue.
The newly redesigned Surveyor cab features more interior space, increased glass area, a new overhead control panel, improved interior dome and armrest lights, an exterior step light, and relocated external cab lights. The air-ride, 40-degree swivel seat provides a 180-degree field of vision, preventing neck strain.
“Case IH Titan 30 Series floaters are easier than ever to use,” says Lehmann. “Application control switches are ergonomically placed on a console to the operator’s right, with the most commonly used controls placed on the control lever for simple, one-handed operation.”
Designed for Solid Performance
Performance and productivity for any floater rests on the frame’s structural integrity. The Titan 30 Series floaters are designed to withstand the most demanding field conditions.
The frames are built of rectangular, cross-section steel tubing and are continuously welded, not just bolted together. This gives floaters maximum frame strength, protecting mounted components from stress cracking.
Welded-in torsion tubes, plus top and bottom doublers in key stress areas, combine to form a rigid frame that easily carries heavy loads. The floaters contain large rear axles rated at 34,000 pounds with a wheel-end planetary and two-speed air-shift. This ruggedness helps the chassis handle the demands of day-in, day-out spreading and spraying over tough terrain.
“Case IH Titan 30 Series floaters are also designed for ease of service, offering easy access to check fluids, batteries, tanks and air system components,” says Lehmann.
In addition, the new 30 Series offers two applicator options to deliver accurate and even application with less waste, the 610 Liquid System or the 810 Flex-Air™ applicator.
“The 810 Flex-Air applicator offers superior, precise fertilizer and nutrient placement that Case IH applicators are known for,” Lehmann says. “The Case IH Titan 30 Series simply provides greater power and comfort to help producers get the application completed with an uncomplicated, efficient system.”
