Under the Spotlight: Case IH’s AF11 Class 10+ Combine Takes Stage at National Farm Machinery Show

National Farm Machinery Show is the site for several next-level announcements from Case IH, that continue to drive purposeful solutions for producers. Building on the legacy of Axial-Flow and Steiger, Case IH not only shows the AF11 and the next-generation corn head, designed to match its capacity but also introduces the Quadtrac Heavy Duty Suspension for Steigers that ups the ante in track technology.


For farmers looking to cover more acres in less time, the AF11 sets the bar in maximizing time in the field. To maximize the capacity of the AF11, Case IH is introducing the C516 corn head, which offers improved performance with a clean solution.

“We know that farmers are looking to pick corn faster, cleaner and with as little downtime as possible.

When paired with an Axial-Flow combine, like the AF11, this durable corn head will deliver maximized capacity and throughput.”

states Leo Bose, harvesting segment lead for Case IH.

The C516 corn head is designed with runtime in mind. It boasts the largest cross drill in the industry for maximized throughput, independent drive lines that allow for row-unit protection, and overall weight reduction for improved flotation and reduced soil compaction. The C516 corn head and AF11 will be available only in North America.

For the model year 2025, Case IH has introduced the Quadtrac Heavy-Duty Suspension (HDS). The HDS system is optional and offers faster transport speeds of up to 26.5 mph. Additionally, the fully suspended track system conforms to the ground surface, which reduces the shock transmitted to the machine and operator. This helps to ensure a comfortable and safe ride.

“We have significantly reduced vibrations felt in the cab for the operator, while also improving efficiency and performance in the field through a larger drive wheel and longer track.

Building hydraulic suspension into our Quadtracs was the next evolution for Steiger tractors. It comes down to being purposeful in how we deliver solutions to our customers, whether it be comfort, maintenance or just overall experience.”

affirms Morgen Deitrich, tractor segment lead for Case IH.

HDS is greaseless by design with an exclusive load-sharing hydraulic suspension and self-tensioning tracks. Built with durability and agronomic principles, HDS delivers unmatched comfort and reduced soil compaction via a larger footprint.
