Camso gets ready for Farm Progress Show 2018

Magog, QC, August 16, 2018 – Camso expands its product portfolio with a new track during this year’s Farm Progress Show, running from August 28 to 30 in Boone, Iowa.

Camso is committed to driving farming forward and focuses on developing solutions that help farmers improve efficiency, increase yields, lower operating costs and improve productivity.

“We have the widest range of agricultural tracks in the industry, engineered for numerous types of equipment and applications,” says Martin Lunkenbein, Service and Aftermarket Sales Executive Director – Agriculture, for Camso. “This year’s track innovation will be made public at FPS, but to see it, you have to come to see us on-site at booth #109,” hinted Lunkenbein.

Over and above this exciting new track, visitors can learn about Camso’s certified remanufactured tracks and wheels program, launched earlier in March 2018. “As leaders in track technology, it’s important for us to provide solutions for customers looking to get multiple lives from their used tracks and wheels,” says Lunkenbein. “Customers have two options with our program. They can return their original product to their local dealer and have it remanufactured by Camso, or they can choose to buy a certified remanufactured product directly from our inventory,” concludes Lunkenbein.

In addition to a broad range of tracks, wheels and systems at the show, Camso will highlight its Conversion Track System (CTS) High Speed for combines. Featuring an integrated final drive system, the CTS High Speed allows track combines to reach similar roading speeds to their wheeled equivalents.

To see the product in action, each day at 11 a.m., showgoers can watch the system run during a live field demonstration.

Camso has also partnered with Mud Hog to offer a hydraulic rear drive axle powered track system solution. Together they’ve teamed up and will demo a CTS High Speed at the front of a John Deere S700 combine with Mud Hog’s X-track, featuring Camso CTS.

More Camso-equipped products will be displayed in various OEM booths throughout the show, including the new IDEAL combine from AGCO, the 9RX narrow tractor from John Deere, and Kinze grain carts.

Camso will be located in booth #109 in the northwest corner of the show site. Company representatives will be on hand to answer questions and provide information.
