Ecolo-Tiger Evolution The Ecolo-Tiger® 875 represents the 8th generation of Ecolo-Tigers, a tradition which began in 1978. With the development of the 875 model, Case IH experts invested five years of intense agronomic research in five states, analyzing five million data points, all with an eye to clearly understanding the field factors likely to impact yield. The Case IH team learned that by better managing residue, soil fracture and most importantly the size of holes and clods left behind, yield potential could be significantly improved. Large holes can collect water, and in combination with large clods they increase the variability in the field, making accurate seed placement at planting impossible. Based on the research findings, as many as 3,000 plants per acre, or 7 to 10 percent of the total stand could be lost to poor seedbed conditions.
Adapt in Adverse Conditions One outcome of this research, the Case IH patented double-edge reel, sizes any remaining large clods and levels the soil more to eliminate lost yield potential. In the new Ecolo-Tiger 875, the double-edge reel has a hydraulic option, allowing producers to position the reel from the cab. This best-in-class option allows operators to float over wet spots in the field by raising the basket. It provides level output over varying soil types for improved seed beds and resists plugging in wet conditions. Other rear options include a mechanical-positioned double-edge reel; a 5-bar spike; harrow; and a 3-bar coil-tine harrow.
Durability Built-in Like its predecessor, the Ecolo-Tiger 875 efficiently sizes and mixes tough, heavy residue, while leveling the soil for a smooth seedbed. Case IH engineers equipped this new model with redesigned high density Tiger Points for improved durability while maintaining the lift, twist and roll action that is an Ecolo-Tiger and Tiger point hallmark. This action not only fractures compaction, but also works to relocate soil particles for superior soil tilth. In addition, Earth Metal® blades are now standard equipment on both gang and individual disk blade models.
An aquant powder coat paint finish adds even more durability to the Ecolo-Tiger 875 with 400 percent more resistance to impact, scratching and paint fading vs. prior models. This paint finish is the result of Case IH’s expansion of its Goodfield, Ill., plant, which allowed for the addition of a multistage auto deposition primer dip paint system with a powder topcoat. Customers benefit from an even more rugged red paint finish that looks better rolling off the factory line, lasts throughout the life of the disk ripper and improves resale value.
