The Most Economical Harvest Solution
The Case IH Module Express eleminates the need for extra equipment such as module builders and tractors. The Module Express harvests the cotton then builds a standard 8ft x 8ft x 16ft module ready for the gin. No need for external plastic wrap or twine.
From Boll to Module in One Single Step
The module-building chamber is designed to vertically pack a transportable module with no exterior twine or plastic to worry about.
Automatic Intelligent Auger Packing System
The Case IH module-building chamber incorporates a patented system of sensors and augers to move cotton automatically as the module is being compressed. It creates consistent, rectangular modules for excellent weatherability and ginning. And the modules are purposely sized to maximize gin-feeding rates without adding any alterations or expenses.
Standard "Half" Modules
At 8 ft x 8 ft x 16 ft (2 m x 2 m x 5 m), the modules produced by the Module Express 625 are the same height and width as a standard module but half the length. These 16 ft (5 m) “half” modules load and unload individually, yet two fit into a standard module truck like one traditional 32 ft (10 m) module.
No Twine, No Plastic
The whole idea of new technology should be to maximize productivity without added expense. That's why Case IH modules are purposely sized to maximize gin-feeding rates without any modifications at the gin. And because there isn’t any plastic wrap or twine to buy or dispose of, it can't contaminate finished bales.
Two-sided Drum For Maximum Picking Efficiency
Because cotton plants have two sides, so why not pick both? Maximize your yield and profit by picking more cotton from both sides of the row. Get the most picking efficiency - more than an in-line drum that picks only from one side.
The Module Express 625 Cotton Picker features Extenda-Wear Plus™ spindles with a superior barb pattern of three rows of fourteen barbs. The first three barbs in each row are cut at a 30-degree angle to pick efficiently and help the cotton easily move off the spindle during the doffing process. For more efficient picking, the last 11 barbs are cut at a 45-degree angle. Extenda-Wear Plus spindles have 90-micron chrome thickness to provide you with maximum durability.

AFS Pro 700
The AFS Pro 700 Monitor brings enhanced processing speed, reduced overall size, and many other new features that are all designed to increase productivity, profitability and help maximize your farms' potential. By tracking percent full, module weight and bales per acre, you can easily plan drop-off points around the field that can be conveniently accessed for loading onto module trucks.
The module monitor provides operation status and percent full. In the majority of field length and yield possibilities, the Module Express 635 will be on a field end when the module is between 90 and 125 percent of normal size and ready to unload. This minimizes handling of the modules — the module truck picks up the module right where it is unloaded. A 7 in (18 cm), flat-screen, color LCD video monitor provides two camera views — in the module chamber and a rear view behind the machine.
Optimized Flotation to Minimize Soil Compaction
Case IH engineers paid special attention to balance, weight distribution and floatation when designing the Module Express pickers to keep ground pressure low.
- 500/95–32 R1.5 dual-drive tires are used up front for high flotation, with large 23.5–26 steering tires on the powered rear axle.
- Longer Chassis provides greater balance.

MAINTENANCE & UPTIME
Designed to Work Hard All Day, Every Day
Less Routine Maintenance
With its 200 gal. (757 L) fuel tank, 365 gal. (1,381 L) water solution tank and an 80 gal. (303 L) bar lube tank, the Module Express 625 can pick all day on just one fill-up. And its standard automatic lube system runs for 16 minutes every fan hour — saving an hour from your daily service routine.
Metered lubrication to drum gears, cam tracks, rollers, drum lift arms and fan bearings provides reliability of components and delivers a metered amount of grease to each component automatically.
For all its advanced features and enhanced productivity, the Module Express actually requires less daily maintenance than a traditional basket picker. The two-function service tether allows the operator to easily perform service at ground level.
No need for hand cranks – the Module Express features a simple, hydraulic drum-spread providing full access to the two-sided drums or drum rotation at the touch of a button.
