‘Smallest’ Axial-Flow eats through 2,500 bushels each hour

Terry Snack is proud to talk about the Case IH Class 5, 5130 Axial-Flow combine. It’s the company’s smallest and Snack refers to it as “ideal” for the small to mid-sized farmer. It accommodates a six to eight-row corn head and a 25 to 30-foot platform. “It’s a real castle up there,” says Snack, referring the 110 cubic feet of cab space, from which the operator can actuate the fold-down grain tank extension. Folding it down trims 2.5 feet of the machine’s height to ease transportation, but extended, the tank holds 250 bushels of grain. And ok, it may not be the most essential part of the harvester, but the cab features a refrigerator, which provides a welcome cold drink and sandwich making long days in the field seem less daunting.
