The 50th anniversary run of the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Ky., begins today. The Show is held at the Kentucky Exposition Center, just off Interstate 65 on the south side of town. It runs through this Saturday, Feb. 14.
Here are just two of several companies that have invited visitors to come by their exhibits and see what they're offering that is new to the market. A number of companies are expected to display new products for the first time at this year's show.
Case IH: Dan Danford, communications specialist, wants you to visit Booth 1036 in the South Hall. You will notice the red machinery long before you get to the Case IH exhibit.
Two brand new tractors will be on display, Danford notes. He also points to a number of products that while not totally new, have new features for 2015.
He suggests checking out the Early Riser planters on display. Experts will be on hand to tell you how you can take planter performance to the next level by starting with a Case IH Early Riser planter and adding Precision Planting options.
Precision Planting, now owned by Monsanto, will also be at the show. Their products displayed in the Case exhibit will relate specifically to improving planter performance.
You will also want to check out the Magnum Rowtrac tractor, the Steiger Rowtrac tractor and the Axial-Flow combine with front tracks, Danford says.
Kuhn-Krause: Kuhn Krause believes they established an industry standard with the Dominator tillage tool. Now they are ready to introduce the Dominator 4855.
The company says it uses a five-step system to accomplish residue management. Several features on the new model resulted from customer and dealer feedback, company spokespersons say.
The Dominator 4855 will be available this year in seven-, nine-, 11- and 13-shank configurations. The new model has been engineered to be easy to service and with minimal down time in mind.
