Case IH will be showing off three exciting new products at the Ploughing C this week, including the Magnum Rowtrac and Stage IV Puma tractors.
The new 380hp Case IH Magnum Rowtrac 380 CVX will undoubtedly be the star of the show. It combines the benefits of wheeled and tracked tractors yet, according to Case IH, outperforms both. Designed for field work, it should prove popular with arable farmers and contractors.
Based on Case's current Tractor of The Year model, the Rowtrac combines the manoeuvrability, handling and versatility of a wheeled tractor with the ability of a tracked machine.
The first Magnum Rowtrac tractors will be delivered to customers here at the end of this year, so ploughing punters will get a great opportunity to see these huge machines in the flesh.
Also of big interest to Irish contractors and bigger farmers will be the new Case IH Puma range, which incorporates seven models with rated power outputs from 150-240hp. The top-of-the-range Puma 240 delivers up to 270hp with power poost and 1160Nm of torque from 1400-1600rpm. A key feature is their six-cylinder power units which use Fiat Power Train Industrial's proven engine technology to meet European Stage IV (Tier 4 Final) emission regulations.
Simple and efficient, the system minimises fuel consumption, maximises performance and enables Case IH to achieve engine oil change intervals of 600 hours.
For drystock and dairy farmers the latest addition to the Farmall U Pro range comprises the four-wheel-drive 99hp 95U Pro, 107hp 105U Pro and 115hp 115U Pro. A key feature of the new model is its premium-specification cab.
Designed, developed and manufactured at the company's St Valentin factory in Austria, alongside Case IH's larger Maxxum and Puma models, the U Pro is the successor to Case IH's highly-respected CS Pro.
