Case IH announces the new Optum CVX range with a stunning new design, Powerful, compact and highly manoeuvrable with excellent power-to-weight-ratio, Efficiency, versatility and reliability.
More power and close to ‘Puma dimensions’ is what Case IH claims the European farming community have been asking for; this has now been achieved! The new Optum CVX is the first Case IH tractor to have the new design with a new bonnet and rear fender styling, plus eye catching signature lighting.
“Modern, productive farming and contracting businesses in Europe are amongst the most demanding customers worldwide, one reason being that cropping is more intensive and yields are higher than in most other regions, whilst weather conditions often limit available time windows for field work. Handling any given task with maximum performance, efficiency and reliability is therefore what the Optum CVX was designed and built for”, says Andreas Klauser, Case IH President.
Case IH Optum CVX
The Optum CVX range consists of two models with compact 6.7 litre NEF engines from FPT Industrial, with 270 or 300hp at a rated speed of 2,100rpm and a maximum power of 313hp at 1,800rpm for the larger of the two models. The engines feature Hi-eSCR only after-treatment solution for maximum combustion efficiency and fulfil Stage IV emission regulations. Changes for the engine include new valve material and design for the engine head for higher combustion pressure; however the major change comes in the lower part of the engine block and oil sump, with a specific design where the sump serves as backbone of the tractor, thus removing stress from the engine block. Whilst the typical weight of the Optum CVX amounts to 11,000kg, this ‘structural sump’ allows for a maximum gross vehicle weight of 16,000kg, providing ballast and payload options for the customer.The Optum CVX has the ability to put the additional power to the ground whilst maintaining the agility of the smaller models, thus further increasing efficiency, maximising uptime and increasing comfort levels for the operator, whilst reducing total cost of ownership: “This is an ‘Optumal’ solution for this broad range of demands and specifications. Our engineers have rethought and revised every single detail, always looking for ways to optimise efficiency, performance and reliability alike”, highlights Case IH Product Marketing Manager Dan Stuart.
“The single eVGT turbocharger delivers the high torque required at low engine speeds and responds faster than twin turbos, thus making the Optum a true ‘power pack’”, says Stuart. “In addition, owners and operators will enjoy the longest service intervals in this power sector and less time and money needs to be spent on routine maintenance. A massive reservoir of 630 litres diesel and 96 litres AdBlue tanks, and idle speed management which reduces the engine speed from 850 rpm to 650 rpm, further adds to the highly efficient operation of the Optum CVX as there is less need to spend time returning to the farmyard for refuelling”, he adds
Creating a tractor that offers our customer the best solution is one thing, but we also know that customers and operators like to be proud of the tractor they own and drive. The most striking thing for people when they see the Optum CVX for the first time is the stunning new design, including the new bonnet with dynamic lines and 3D LED lighting, plus signature lights, the tractor announces the new look for Case IH tractors of the future.
