The first three pre-production machines of what was the world’s most powerful forager were hard at work in 1996 in Mengele blue, although, by the time it reached production in 1999, the Mammut 8790 was finished in Case IH red. Then, just two years later, the range was dropped

Presented by Case IH as the world’s most powerful self-propelled forage harvester at Agritechnica in 1997, the Mammut 8790 would undergo further field tests and trials throughout 1998, and the first production machines duly hit the market for the following season.
