Case IH Maxxum 145 Multicontroller awarded Tractor of the Year and Best Design title for 201904 DEC
The Case IH Maxxum 145 Multicontroller has been awarded the title of Tractor of the Year 2019 and Best Design 2019 at an award ceremony on the first day of EIMA International, the farm equipment show, in Bologna, Italy.
Launched last year alongside three smaller 116-135hp (rated) models, the highlights of the 145hp Maxxum 145 Multicontroller include its ActiveDrive 8 eight-step semi-powershift transmission and the Multicontroller armrest and joystick, attributes recognised by TOTY judges – professional farm machinery journalists from across Europe – for aiding ease of operation and enhancing efficiency. Maxxum tractors are also available with four-step powershift and continuously-variable transmissions.
With recent revisions to the Maxxum range having given the line a fresh new look, in a double recognition the same model has also won the Best Design category, recognising the importance to functionality and form of a modern tractor’s styling.
The winning formula
Following its introduction last summer, the new Case IH Maxxum range, in its Multicontroller guise with the new ActiveDrive 8 semi-powershift transmission, was awarded the prestigious Machine of the Year title for 2018 at Agritechnica in Hanover, Germany. Now the Maxxum 145 Multicontroller has added to its medal haul by taking the Tractor of the Year 2019 title, which is also judged by a panel of European agricultural magazine editors.
Complementing the existing ActiveDrive 4 four-step semi-powershift and CVXDrive continuously-variable transmissions, the key development on the new Maxxum Multicontroller range is the ActiveDrive 8 three-range/eight-step semi-powershift. The transmission and many other tractor operating functions can be controlled through the Multicontroller armrest and joystick.
The TOTY award builds on the Maxxum 145 Multicontroller’s previous achievements, including the lowest average specific fuel consumption recorded in the Field Work section of the PowerMix test conducted by Germany’s DLG testing station.
“We are delighted to have been awarded the 2019 Tractor of the Year accolade for the Maxxum 145 Multicontroller,” says Thierry Panadero, Case IH vice-president for Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
“It’s a fitting recognition that greater transmission efficiency and ease of control both have parts to play in not only making farming more profitable, but more sustainable too. Helping to make operations easier, more efficient and more environmentally-friendly is a core criteria in the design of our machines, so it’s gratifying to see the Maxxum Multicontroller’s features recognised in this way.”
New 145hp six-cylinder Case IH Maxxum 150 makes working debut05 NOV
A new compactly-designed six-cylinder 150hp tractor equipped with a continuously-variable transmission will be available to Case IH customers from October 2018, with the launch of the new six-cylinder 145hp Maxxum 150 CVX, to be offered alongside the established four-cylinder 145hp Maxxum CVX and smaller Maxxum models.
Until now, the Maxxum range has been based around four-cylinder models only, with four variants focusing on demand for compact, light, universal tractors in this sector. However, recognising some customers’ preference for a six-cylinder machine at the upper end of this power bracket, there is now an alternative to the four-cylinder 145hp Maxxum 145. In place of this tractor’s 4.5-litre four-cylinder FPT engine, the new Maxxum 150 features a 6.7-litre power unit from the same Case IH sister company. As with other Maxxum models, the Maxxum 150 is available with the ActiveDrive 4 four-step semi-powershift, ActiveDrive 8 eight-step semi-powershift (from early 2019) or CVXDrive CVT.
The Maxxum 150 has the same 175hp maximum power rating with Engine Power Management as the Maxxum 145. Its torque rating, though, is greater, at 740Nm (measured at 1,500rpm) compared to the 700Nm of the Maxxum 145. Like the engine in four-cylinder Maxxum tractors, the six-cylinder power unit in the Maxxum 150 meets Stage IV emissions regulations using patented Hi-eSCR selective catalytic reduction, a maintenance-free system with no exhaust gas recirculation.
Despite its different engine configuration, the Maxxum 150 retains the same 2,642mm wheelbase and 5,137mm length as four-cylinder Maxxum models, another feature likely to appeal to farmers seeking compactness, manoeuvrability and minimal soil disturbance when manoeuvring and turning at headlands. The Maxxum 150 is also the lightest, smallest tractor of its configuration and power output, and with an unladen weight of 5,020kg weighs just 130kg more than the Maxxum 145.
With the ability to work at a set engine or forward speed and alter either one independently of the other, tractors with continuously-variable transmissions are particularly well-suited to operating equipment where this is advantageous, meaning consistent work can be maintained regardless of soil type or the field topography. Where the Case IH CVXDrive transmission for the Maxxum range is different is in its use of double clutch technology. This means that at the point it takes place, the change between the transmission’s two mechanical ranges is seamless, with uninterrupted power flow from standstill to the tractor’s 50km/h top speed, and full tractive power available across the whole speed range, critical when operating destoners or planters on undulating land or that which, for example, consists of differing soil types.
Maxxum CVXDrive tractors are also equipped Automatic Productivity Management (APM), another feature with particular benefits when operating across varying land. By automatically reducing engine speed when it detects when less power is required – for example, on an area of lighter soil, or when demands on an implement’s hydraulic circuit are reduced – it is able to significantly cut fuel consumption and operating costs.
Options to ensure pass-to-pass accuracy at work and on the headland
Like other tractors in the Maxxum range, the Maxxum 150 is available equipped from the factory with the necessary hardware for the installation of AFS AccuGuide automated steering, to ensure the creation of parallel passes. Operated through the Case IH AFS Pro 700 terminal screen, the system can work with a number of different signals, according to the level of pass-to-pass accuracy required, right down to RTK, with its 2.5cm repeatability for absolute minimum wastage of fuel and crop inputs.
When specifying new AccuTurn Pro, the operations of AFS AccuTurn automatic end of row turn and the HMC II automated headland management system are combined to completely automate the headland turn process. The system guides the tractor automatically into the next chosen pass to ease the operator workload and further increase accuracy by ensuring it is placed exactly where it needs to be at the start of the next run.

Case IH Launches New Mid-Size & Smaller Sizes at LAMMA 201829 JAN
For the first time in the UK, Case IH used LAMMA 2018 to present its new Maxxum ActiveDrive tractor which has just been awarded Machine of the Year, as well as the new Farmall A model and updated Farmall C tractors.
NEW MAXXUM ACTIVEDRIVE
Case IH Maxxum Multicontroller tractors can now be specified with ActiveDrive 8, a new 24 x 24 semi-powershift transmission which provides eight powershift steps in each of three ranges.
Incorporating features which make the tractor more efficient and more relaxing to drive, ActiveDrive 8 joins the existing four-speed 16 x 16 40 km/h semi-powershift and continuously-variable 50 km/h CVX transmission options which have been renamed ActiveDrive 4 and CVXDrive.
Range One of ActiveDrive 8, which covers speeds up to 10.2 km/h and is designed for heavier draft work and applications requiring very low speeds, is also available with additional creep speeds. Range Two, covers nearly 90% of field, grassland and loader requirements from 1.6-18.1 km/h. For road travel, the transmission is designed to start in Range Three, and a skip-shift function allows quick progress through the powershift speeds. An auto shift feature allows the tractor to progress automatically through any set of eight speeds in the field, and through all 16 gears in the top two ranges on the road.
Because the clutch pedal is not required to change gear, this transmission is suited to power-hungry tasks where maintaining momentum is critical, such as cultivations or operating large mowers. A true power shuttle, it ensures no loss of drive or traction during changes of direction on slopes and incorporates a ‘brake to clutch’ feature.
Maxxum Multicontroller models make both tractor and operator more productive, courtesy of the unique Case IH Multicontroller armrest and joystick, which put multiple operating functions at the driver’s fingertips. From full transmission operation via thumb-operated powershift and powershuttle control, to engine speed control and the operation of electronic remote valves, everything is immediately to hand. These tractors can also be specified with mechanical or electronic remote valves.
The Maxxum range now includes a new range-topping 175hp (max) six-cylinder Maxxum 150 CVX. Both six-cylinder Maxxum 150 Multicontroller and Maxxum 150 CVX will be fully available from the third quarter of 2018. With this model Case IH now offers the lightest, smallest tractor in the industry with a six-cylinder engine of this power output. Maxxum tractors are powered by FPT Industrial’s 4.5-litre four-cylinder and 6.7-litre six-cylinder turbocharged and intercooled engines, which meet Stage IV emissions regulations using the Hi-eSCR selective catalytic reduction system.
NEW FARMALL A
Case IH three new multi-task tractors, the 55hp Farmall 55A, 65hp Farmall 65A and 75hp Farmall 75, are light, highly manoeuvrable, easy to use, with low running costs. Their design, specification, performance and practicality make them ideal for loader, livestock and municipal applications, as well as for other land-based businesses requiring a low-cost, versatile, easily maintained tractor for general tasks.
Attractively-styled, with a sloping bonnet for excellent forward visibility, all are available in two-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive form, with a spacious, comfortable CAB or ROPS, and options which enable customers to tailor the specification to their exact requirements.
Power is supplied by 2.9-litre turbocharged/intercooled engines developed by FPT which achieve maximum power from 1900rpm to 2300rpm, providing a 400rpm Constant Power band, with peak torque produced at 1400rpm.
All engines incorporate a maintenance-free Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) to help meet Stage IIIB emission standards without Diesel Emission Fluid (AdBlue), while the class-leading 600-hour oil change interval minimises servicing costs. A choice of vertical or horizontal exhausts is offered.
The standard transmission on two-wheel-drive models is a 30 kph 12 x 12 Mech-Shuttle, while four-wheel-drive models are equipped with a 40 kph 12 x 12 Mech-Shuttle. The optional 40 kph 20 x 20 Creeper transmission provides a minimum forward speed of just 110m/h, while the optional Powershuttle offers clutch-less operation, ideal for tasks which require frequent changes of direction.
All models feature a Case IH front axle which is three-point linkage and loader-ready, enabling these to be fitted quickly and easily. The rear axle, which has a maximum capacity of 3700kg, incorporates a mechanically-engaged differential lock and oil-immersed disc brakes. The standard hydraulic trailer braking system provides excellent performance, but a pneumatic system can be specified.
The rear three-point linkage sets a benchmark for this class of tractor, providing a maximum lift capacity of 3000kg when an assister ram is fitted. Farmall A models also feature a fully-independent 540rpm, six-spline PTO, with the option of 540/540E and 540/540E plus ground speed units.
Providing outstanding all-round visibility through a class-leading 5m2 glass area, the four-post, flat-floor cab offers a quiet, comfortable, relaxing working environment. Meeting FOPS and Level 2 dust protection standards, it incorporates a high-visibility roof panel, single-piece rear window that opens to almost 90°, front and rear worklights, wide-view mirrors and a rotary beacon. Air conditioning is optional.
UPGRADED FARMALL C
The significantly updated Case IH Farmall C range includes seven compact, versatile models from 58hp to 114hp, all of which incorporate capacity, transmission and control updates to boost comfort and capability.
The significantly updated Case IH Farmall C range includes seven compact, versatile models from 58hp to 114hp, all of which incorporate capacity, transmission and control updates to boost comfort and capability.
Tractors fitted with a front linkage and the top-specification 24/24 hi/lo transmission with electro-hydraulic power-shuttle can now be specified with the Multicontroller joystick/armrest fitted to larger Case IH tractors, giving fingertip control of key functions.
Other improvements include the option of Heavy Duty (HD) axles on models of 86hp and over, a constant speed engine function and true 40kph top speed at just 2,000 engine rpm (300rpm lower than before) to reduce fuel consumption, engine wear and in-cab sound levels without requiring AdBlue.
New Farmall C models also feature 540/540E/1000 rpm PTO options and can be ordered loader-ready, incorporating a subframe, hydraulic connections and joystick, making it easy to install a Case IH LRZ premium or LRA economy loader.

The Manitou group scoops the "Etoile du Design Made in France" prize!11 DEC
The Manitou group, the global leader in all-terrain handling, has won the "Étoile du Design Made In France" prize at the Étoiles du Design ceremony held at the Pompidou Centre in Paris. Awarded by APCI (Agency for the Promotion of Industrial Creation), this prize recognises the work done by the Design and R&D teams in stylistic,ergonomic and functional terms on the MLT NewAg range of agricultural telehandlers.
After being awarded the famous "LabelObserveur du Design 2018" by APCI last July for its MLT New Ag range of agricultural telehandlers, the Manitou group has now won the "Étoile du Design Made in France",beating more than 160 projects in the industrial sector. The jury, made up of around thirty influential people in the industrial design sector, clearly liked the "predatory"appearance of this range and its tight, keen curves giving these telehandlers a certain power and aggressiveness. Open to companies, designers, schools and authorities, the Observeur du Design identifies innovative creations and showcases French design expertise. Awarded by the Secretary of State alongside the Minister of the Economy and Finances, Benjamin Griveaux, this award highlights the Group's expertise in product design. Supported by an R&D team of more than 240 engineers and technicians, the Manitou group makes a point of combining performance and aesthetics in its creations.
Thierry Lehmann, the original designer of the NewAg range's lines, explains his thought process: "With very little presence in the handling sector before the 2000s, we have sought to make design a pillar of our models. The NewAg range has been designed to improve the lives of users, with clear visibility for enhanced safety, easy cab access thanks to the Easy-Step and optimized ergonomics in the driver's cab with a joystick that reduces musculoskeletal disorders (MSD). We made the decision to have a very dynamic, keen line, conveying efficiency, sturdiness and power to give the range a modern appearance that turns the codes of handling on their head". The Manitou group filed 8 patents while developing this NewAg range. In order to make its expertise known to the public, Manitou Group seized the opportunity of this ceremony to display one of the famous models from the NewAg range in front of the Pompidou Centre.
Key figures of the MLT NewAg range:
- 12 models with heights ranging from 6 to 9 metres for a loading capacity of between 3and 4 tonnes
- 150 people involved full time for 3 years, in R&D and marketing, in design and production
- 800 production documents
- 15,000 prototype parts
- 100,000 hours of work, i.e. 55 years for a single person!
- 120,000 hours of in-house and external testing with the support of 50 clients

NewAg from Manitou30 JAN
The Manitou group, global leader in all-terrain material handling, is launching a new range of forklift-trucks dedicated to agriculture, a sector in which it generates one-third of its sales. This new MLT (Manitou Loader Telescopic) range, named "NewAg", provides a response to the current and future requirements of farmers.
In order to best meet the current and future expectations of farmers, Manitou has been working for nearly 3 years on a complete range of machines and innovative services, including those related to connectivity and consumables. The range was launched earlier in the month at Lamma Show 2017.
"As requirements for comfort, performance and productivity are increasingly high on farms, we have to offer a choice of machines that are adapted to these constraints, and of course compliant with the Euro Stage IV engine standards. We have chosen to call this range NewAg because this name reflects the changes in the agricultural world and is understandable by everyone. The range fits perfectly within our REDUCE TCO* (TotalCost of Ownership) program, thanks to the numerous services offered, which can reduce the total cost of ownership still further", says Arnaud Boyer, Vice-President Marketing & Product Development for the Manitou group.
The visibility of the models in the NewAg range has been improved, with the redesign of the inclination of the blades on the roof grid by engineers. This roof grid, patented by Manitou, provides the user with a clear view of the load being handled, whatever the height of the deployed boom. Other elements have also been redesigned, such as the low position of the articulation point of the boom. Equipped with a panoramic monobloc windscreen, the NewAg's new cab provides a real 360° visibility.See and be seen. This motto is also one of the objectives of NewAg.
We currently have a NewAg model, the MLT635-130 PS+ in stock - see more details here.

Case IH Luxxum
Some things make jobs so much easier that you wonder how you ever managed without them. The new Case IH Luxxum is just like that. With greater manoeuvrability, higher levels of comfort and better visibility than any tractor of this size that we’ve ever made, it continues our commitment to easing the demands placed on the operator, ensuring greater productivity from both tractor and driver.
Whether your farm jobs demand long hours in the tractor seat or require you to be in and out of your machine at regular intervals, you’ll find Luxxum tractors are designed to make your working day as stress-free as possible. That’s because they include the sort of comprehensive specification rarely found on other tractors of this size. These are machines that make light work of difficult tasks with the minimum of effort from both tractor and operator.
Top-of-the-range air suspension seating is standard, as is a passenger seat that provides comfortable accommodation yet folds away unobtrusively when not required, while comfort is further improved by front axle and cab suspension options. The instrument cluster moves with the steering wheel adjustment, and external vision is among the best in the business, with features including a curved upper windscreen area plus roof window that combine to provide excellent views when operating a front loader. Meanwhile, well-placed ventilation outlets ensure you keep cool in hot weather and warm when it’s not so good outside – and an ISOBUS connection allows the control of compatible implements.
Luxxum engines come from the only source you’d expect – our sister company FPT, a proven provider of power. Case IH and FPT engineers work closely to ensure each engine model used in a Case IH machine is perfectly matched to the demands it will face. That means you benefit from a tractor designed by teams from the same parent company working towards a common goal – your satisfaction. Every model uses a Stage IV, 3.4-litre, four-cylinder FPT engine with four valves/cylinder for thorough combustion. Intercooling and an improved turbocharger produce a maximum 99-117hp power (depending on model) at minimal fuel consumption. A steep torque rise translates into quick acceleration on the road and pulling power in the field that simply never gives up. Add in a wide constant power band that ensures peak performance in PTO applications and you have an engine that won’t let you down, no matter what’s asked of it. With Luxxum, there’s no diesel particulate filter, a reduction in exhaust gas recirculation by up to 10%, and an ultra-efficient selective catalytic reduction (HI-SCR) system, plus an improved turbocharger to give you the most efficient engine possible. Fuel tank capacities of 150 litres plus DEF/AdBlue tanks that hold 14 litres mean long stints between refuelling, while the engine oil change interval is an industry-leading 600 hours.
Case IH celebrates 175 years at the cutting edge of agricultural equipment production in 201716 JAN
Celebrating the past – Looking to the Future
In 1902, five companies merged to form the International Harvester Company in Chicago, the deal being brokered, personally, by J.P. Morgan, the American banker who dominated corporate finance and industrial consolidation at the time. The company produced its first combine harvester in 1915 and in 1923 introduced the Farmall®, the world’s first row-crop tractor. Providing greater productivity, reliability and safety, it was a revolutionary unified system of tractors and implements for ploughing, cultivating and harvesting. International Harvester sold more than five million Farmall tractors and in 1977 launched the unique single-rotor Axial-Flow® rotary combine, which revolutionized the farming industry with its simplicity, grain quality, grain savings, crop adaptability, matched capacity and high resale value. Axial-Flow combines still set the standard for harvesting performance today. Case IH was formed in 1985 when J. I. Case acquired the agricultural division of International Harvester, uniting the legacies of Case and IH in a single brand. Its first product, the Magnum tractor from 160hp to 240hp, was introduced in 1987 and became the first tractor to win the Industrial Design Excellence Award. Now producing up to 380hp, the Magnum continues to be one of the most recognizable Case IH products and more than 150,000 have been sold.
The revolutionary Quadtrac tractor, which was launched in 1996, established a new benchmark and remains unmatched. Now including the most powerful series production tractor in the world, the Steiger® Quadtrac 620 with up to 692hp, it delivers the greatest pulling power while implementing efficient, ground-conserving tillage and drilling concepts.
Since the turn of the Century, when Case IH reintroduced the Farmall brand, the company’s technical innovations have continued unabated.
- Case IH Advanced Farming Systems (AFS™), accurate to within 2.5cm, have been at the forefront of Precision Farming for more than two decades, giving farmers the ability to maximise productivity and profitability using satellite technology
- In 2000, Case IH launched continuously variable transmission technology which enables its CVX tractors to deliver an optimum combination of power and fuel efficiency
- Patented ‘Efficient Power’ engine technologies enable Case IH equipment to meet the latest Stage IV (Tier 4 Final) emission standards without complex exhaust gas recirculation systems or particulate filters
- In 2014, the Magnum 380 CVX was voted ‘Tractor of the Year 2015’ at the EIMA International Exhibition in Bologna, Italy. That year, Case IH also launched the Rowtrac CVX, which combines the individual benefits of tracked and wheeled tractors
- Case IH’s award-winning performance continued during 2015 when the new Optum CVX tractor was named ‘Machine of the Year 2016’ at Agritechnica. The judges were impressed by its stunning ‘power pack’ design, excellent power-to-weight ratios, maneuverability, efficiency and reliability.
- The Optum 300 CVX achieved the accolade of ‘Tractor of the Year 2017’ at the 2016 EIMA, the international farm machinery show in Italy, where the judges praised its high power, low-weight design which meets the needs of farmers in Europe. Their decision acknowledges Case IH’s ‘focus on farmers’ philosophy and Optum CVX’s importance in the growing high power/compact segment of the tractor market
- Visitors to the 2016 Farm Progress Show in the USA were stunned when Case IH unveiled the Autonomous Tractor Concept. Able to operate autonomously with a wide range of field implements, this ground-breaking concept is designed to make agriculture more efficient, economic and environmentally-friendly at a time when finding skilled labor is becoming increasingly difficult for farmers in many parts of the world.
“The Case IH 175th Anniversary is a testament to many years of quality, perseverance and progress. It’s also an occasion to reflect on our guiding principles of innovative engineering, efficient power and agronomic design, a philosophy that will continue into the future,” Andreas Klauser adds.
“I am certain that if Mr. Case could see the company today he would instantly recognise that the core values which he championed all those years ago are still at the heart of everything we do. I have no doubt he would approve of the fact that we involve customers in every new range, model and product update through our Customer Driven Product Design, but what he would think of the Autonomous Tractor Concept we can only guess!.
“When I look at the enormous transformation which has taken place in agriculture over the last 175 years, it is very exciting to think about what might be achieved during the next 175 years. I am sure that will be discussed during our celebrations with customers, dealers and employees.”

Case IH Optum 300 CVX takes Tractor of the Year title for 201710 NOV
The 2017 Tractor of the Year title has been awarded to Case IH for its Optum 300 CVX tractor, a result that acknowledges the marque’s focus on farmers’ commitment to soil care and fuel efficiency. Awarded by a judging panel from some of Europe’s most important agricultural journals, the accolade acknowledges the importance of the high power/compact Optum CVX tractor which fits in the growing customer segment
“Following the Machine of the Year 2016 award won by the Optum, this Tractor of the Year title shows the recognition across the European agricultural press that the Optum design and features represents a significant advancement in tractor technology,” says Dan Stuart, Case IH high-hp tractor product marketing manager for Europe, Middle East and Africa.
“Optum CVX is positioned between the US-built Magnum and of our Puma range, which like the Optum CVX is built in St Valentin, Austria. We have created a totally new, strong yet lighter weight design, with new strong front axle and structural engine oil sump design, to meet demands for customer requiring a 250-300hp tractor with a high power-to-weight ratio in a compact, manoeuvrable layout.”
“That means it’s well-suited to tasks where high power is essential but weight less so – such as working with large mowers, for example, where it’s important to protect the sward. But for jobs where traction and grip are the critical factor, such as heavy cultivations, Optum CVX can be weighted to make it as capable as any ordinary tractor of this power. And for road transport, the Optum can be ballasted according to the weight of the load it is pulling, for maximum safety and fuel efficiency.”
Driving through the continuously-variable Case IH CVX transmission, the Hi-eSCR equipped FPT 6.7-litre six-cylinder engine in the Optum CVX is built around a structural sump. While the tractor’s typical unladen weight is 11,000kg, this design allows for a maximum gross vehicle weight of 16,000kg. Further fuel-saving features include idle speed management, cutting engine speed from 850rpm to 650rpm if the tractor stands still without moving for two minutes.
“The result is a tractor that protects the soil, in that it can be operated at a weight that suits the work. It protects the owner’s business from the tyre and component wear that can occur when a heavy tractor is used for lighter field or transport tasks. And it protects against high fuel consumption, as proven by DLG Powermix test results of 249 g/kWh. The Tractor of the Year award shows how important those characteristics are considered to be in modern agriculture.”

New Tractor Range For Case IH08 SEP
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.
