Magnum CVT powers into Trangie NSW

20 Jun 2014

​The first Case IH Magnum 370 CVT tractor sold in Australia has been handed over to the Miller family from Trangie by Three Rivers Machinery in Warren, New South Wales.

The Millers operate Bowen Park, a predominantly irrigated mixed enterprise with cotton, broadacre and grazing crops and stock. They need a powerful machine for general use and to pull their 40ft three-point linkage sowing rig.

The Millers’ new tractor is the most powerful model in the Magnum range. With the ultimate mix of industry-leading horsepower and fuel efficiency, the new model is ideal for today's large-scale implements, such as planters and tillage rigs. It delivers power to the ground with ease and efficiency, and economies of scale to large operations.

Case IH Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) transmission is also now available as an additional option for the Magnum 235, 260, 290, 315 and 340 models.

“The new Magnum 370 CVT is our most powerful front wheel assist tractor yet, and continues to deliver the efficient power that the Magnum Series is known for,” says Pete McCann, Case IH Product Manager for High Horsepower Tractors. 

With an efficient and proven 8.7L Case IH FPT Industrial engine, the Magnum 370 CVT delivers up to 419 maximum boosted engine horsepower with outstanding fuel efficiency and low operating cost.

​With the ultimate mix of industry-leading horsepower and fuel efficiency, the new model is ideal for today's large-scale implements.

​Its heavy-duty Surround Frame provides the framework and "working-weight" ballast needed to transfer high horsepower levels to the ground, and it has a heavier final drive and rear axle assembly.

“The new CVT transmission for the Magnum models provides excellent mechanical efficiency through an industry-leading four-gear range system,” says Pete.

“With the Case IH CVT transmission, you can go from 0 to 50km per hour without having to manually shift. Since the MultiControl handle operates like a propulsion lever, you have more opportunity to concentrate on the task at hand,” adds Pete.

“You get the optimum combination of power, efficiency and ease of operation. CVT allows your tractor to find the sweet spot between power and efficiency, homing in on the optimal combination of engine RPM and transmission gear for the task.”

The new CVT transmission provides smooth operation with seamless shifting and a continuous selection of working speeds. Its technology is also simple to use, even for less experienced operators with MultiControl armrest controls similar to, yet even easier to operate than traditional Case IH full Powershift transmissions.
