Big Order For Case In Turkmenistan

Posted on August 18, 2006

Case IH, a division of CNH Global, said Turkmenistan has agreed to buy 220 plowing tractors and 100 cotton pickers in an order worth approximately $55 million. "This is the family of tractors that has been hugely successful in Turkmenistan, and we are very honored for the purchases to continue," said Michael Edmondson, regional president of CNH's Agricultural Equipment Business - International, in a statement:

Edmondson said he expects the tractors to be shipped before the end of 2006, while the cotton pickers would be delivered "well in time for the cotton picking season next year." The Case IH MX255 is part of the flagship Case IH high-horsepower Magnum line. Case IH Cotton Express cotton pickers harvest from both sides of the plant to provide high picking efficiency, the company said.
