Magog, Quebec, Canada (Sept. 11, 2018) – Camso shared details about its Conversion Track System (CTS) High Speed for Combines and provided updates from its Profit From the Ground Up field study at this year’s Innov-Agri Show that took place Sept. 4-6 in Outarville, France.
“We have the widest range of agricultural tracks in the industry and continuously expand our product portfolio to serve numerous types of agricultural equipment and applications,” said Martin Lunkenbein, Service and Aftermarket Sales Executive Director - Agriculture for Camso.
Expanding its product offering to more combine brands, Camso displayed its latest CTS High Speed that allows tracked harvesting machines to reach road speeds similar to those of wheeled combines. “CTS High Speed is the industry’s first 100 percent bolt-on track system for combines with an integrated final drive that achieves similar roading speeds to wheeled combines – up to 23 mph (37 kph). This exclusive innovation increases a combine’s mobility and flotation for better access to fields with soft ground conditions,” stated Lunkenbein.
CTS High Speed are now available for the following makes of combines:
- AGCO: Full offering for 5 to 6 Straw Walker
- Case IH: New offering for 140 and 240 Series
- Claas: New offering for Lexion Series
- John Deere: Full offering including new S700 Series
- New Holland: New offering for all CX5 & CX6
During Innov-Agri, Camso also released new results from its Profit From The Ground Up field study. The studies are designed to help producers get the most from their fields by using the right tools. “To prove it, we are bringing farmers real data on the benefits of using Camso tracks and track systems for tractors and implements. The first seasonal test has been conducted on tractors for soil preparation,” Lunkenbein said. In one Italian study in corn, the Camso track systems helped produce a 10 percent yield increase with improved performance and better soil preparation.
“Camso is an industry leader when it comes to tracks and track systems and understands farmers mobility challenges and needs,” Lunkenbein said. “Camso products are approved by Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and are the number one choice of OEMs and farmers for agricultural tracks – endorsed by dealers and recognized by farmers. We surpass any product in performance and value. Camso remains committed to redefining the industry standard and to engineering products ready to respond to the evolution of farming equipment.”
From field prep to planting, harvesting and crop delivery, Camso products optimize each stage of a farmer’s operation according to Lunkenbein. “New and field-proven Camso products and technology demonstrate our ongoing commitment and focus to developing solutions that advance a farmer’s operation in terms of efficiency, decreasing soil compaction, increasing yields, lowering operating costs and improving productivity. Our tracks and track systems are one tool in a farmer’s toolbox that can reduce the effects of uncertain weather and extend their farming season.”
