Although the machines are not available in the UK, the contracts underline Case IH’s strength in the world agricultural market.
The pickers, manufactured in Benson, Minnesota, will be delivered to Division 1 and Division 6 of XACG in the third quarter of 2008 in time for the cotton harvest in Xinjiang Province.
“As we look to expand our business in China, these new contracts represent an important step in that direction for our company,” said Franco Fusignani, Chief Executive Officer of CNH International.
Case IH CPX620 cotton pickers harvest from both sides of the cotton plant, providing customers with the best harvesting efficiency on the market. The bigger basket capacity, automatic chassis lubrication and powered guide axle make the CPX620 more productive and more capable of working in different soil conditions in Xinjiang.
