The new Case IH WD3 series windrowers are the first in the industry to offer a factory installed autoguidance system specifically designed for windrowers to increase productivity and reduce operator fatigue. Case IH engineers conducted dynamic stability testing and adjusted the machine's weight balance and developed caster wheels, set at a 9-degree angle. In addition, a dampening feature prevents over steering. The windrowers can top out at 24 miles per hour road speed. The agricultural machinery company has also added a DH3 series' 40-foot draper header as well as a DC3 series disc mower conditioners and a RB565 round baler.

Feedstock supply used for bio-energy requires the highest yielding crops. Recently introduced technology from New Energy Farms, Leamington, Ontario, Canada, has reduced energy crop establishment costs, increases yields and expands feedstock options. Known as CEEDS, it is applicable to crops such as Miscanthus, Arundo donax, sugarcane and others, for fuel, fiber and feed markets. The technology was demonstrated at the New Energy Farms Open Day in September. For growers or end users, New Energy Farms provides a benefit to feedstock supply strategies. They include step changes in yield, maximum yield from a cultivar, first year yield, choice to the customer, and new crops and new regions.

Company adds to diesel fuel product line
Crystal Flash, of Grand Rapids, Mich., has added two products to its diesel fuel product line.
Ignite and Ignite50 have been developed to work with diesel engines designed and built after 2009, but can perform well in older engines, too. The new products are formulated for use in diesel engines including those used in agricultural equipment, over-the-road trucks, construction equipment, school buses and other applications.
The energy distribution company noted that Ignite and Ignite50, which are compatible with biodiesel fuel and blends, offered users a number of benefits, including: better ignition quality and reduced misfires; improved starting in low temperatures; reduced engine noise; lower exhaust emissions’ reduced warm-up times; prevents formation of carbon deposits; extends filter life; restores fuel economy and lost horsepower; and guaranteed cetane of 50 or better. Both products meet or exceed Engine Manufacturers Association lubricity specifications.
In an effort to meet federal mandates for improving air quality, manufacturers of diesel engines and fuels have been working on technological advances that reduce emission of mono-nitrogen oxides and particulate matter. These efforts include the reformulation of diesel fuels to reduce sulfur, cetane and other parameters.
Ignite and Ignite50 include corrosion inhibitors designed to prevent corrosion and rust damage, thermal stabilizers that prevent deposits from plugging and damaging fuel filters and moisture control and cold flow improvers that are designed to work efficiently in very cold weather.
