With 18 new models, Case IH is the first and only agricultural equipment manufacturer to use Selective Catalytic Reduction technology alone to meet strict Tier 4 B/Final emissions standards.
“Achieving the Tier 4 final standard was a colossal challenge, but Case IH has had fewer challenges than most because we determined early on that our patented SCR solution was the right choice and haven’t had to change direction,” says Kyle Russell, Case IH Senior Director of Marketing. “Since we got it right from the start, we’ve been able to meet the standard while still developing class-leading horsepower and efficiency in multiple equipment lines.”
The Case IH FPT SCR-only solution treats the exhaust flow downstream and after the combustion process from the engine, so the engine can generate maximum power without adding any complexity or compromising efficiency. There are no additional emissions systems or operational changes from Case IH Tier 4A to Tier 4 B/Final equipment. The Case IH Tier 4 B solution delivers 95 percent NOx conversion efficiency.
The next generation of Case IH FPT engines continues to offer the industry’s longest oil change intervals at 600 hours, minimal service requirements and more reliability thanks to lower exposure to soot and carbon in that is put back into the engine.
Case IH is a proven leader in SCR technology, with 35,000 engines with 17 million-plus operating hours in North America alone. Case IH FPT engines lead the industry in horsepower, efficiency and simplicity.
The new Case IH Steiger lineup now offers the highest horsepower tractor available with power growth to an incredible 682 horsepower that allows effortless operation with improved ergonomic controls.
This behemoth is part of the next generation of Steiger tractors, with significantly increased horsepower and upgraded features in the cab to help producers maximize their productivity. Available in Quadtrac and HD wheeled versions, the highest horsepower tractor ever produced places more power to the ground effectively with less total field compaction.
The new Magnum lineup tops off at a class-leading 380 horsepower, with 435 rated peak horsepower. In addition, a new Continuously Variable Transmission configuration for high-horsepower machines improves the machine’s mechanical efficiency to make the best use of available power.
Ranging from 150 to 240 horsepower, six new Case IH Tier 4 B Puma models are available with CVT or Powershift transmissions. Like the Tier 4 B Steiger and Magnum, cab controls have been updated, with a redesigned MultiControl handle with raised and ergonomically shaped, backlit buttons.
The updated cab features a headliner with air conditioning controls and three additional storage slots, electric and heated mirrors, a tinted rear windshield, and a storage net below the passenger seat. A Bluetooth radio option is also available.
