New tractors provide Magnum reliability for mid-sized farms

25 Sep 2014

Magnum 200, 220 and 240 tractors combine the brand’s signature innovation and productivity with patented SCR technology for optimum efficiency.

For the first time in Australia, Case IH is offering its innovative Magnum tractor in a mid-size frame, with the launch of the Magnum 200, 220 and 240 models.

“The new Magnum 200, 220 and 240 tractors provide all the innovation, reliability and productivity of the larger models,” said Case IH Product Manager for high horsepower tractors, Pete McCann.

“The difference is these tractors are more suited to mid-sized broadacre operations.”

Currently in Australia, Magnum tractors range from 250 to 380 horsepower. Australia is the first country outside the United States in which Case IH has introduced the smaller range with engine power beginning at 197 horsepower.

Case IH staff and dealers have affectionately dubbed it the “mini Magnum”, but despite this nickname, there’s nothing lightweight about these tractors in the field.

“These are heavy spray tractors and they’re ideally suited to mid-size tillage and farming applications, but they are versatile and adaptable for a wide range of uses.”

These new models also come equipped with Case IH FPT Industrial patented Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology which reduces exhaust emissions and optimises fuel efficiency. It uses fewer moving parts, meaning the tractors’ engines last longer and require less routine maintenance.

Along with the SCR technology, the three newest Magnums include all the features that have made the Case IH Magnum a customer favourite, since its introduction in 1988.

They are built with customer feedback in mind, are designed for maximum uptime, offer more power to handle the most demanding tasks at higher speeds, and are more fuel-efficient.

Despite the smaller frame size, the Surveyor Cab is the same size as on the large Magnum models, while adjustable suspension provides an exceptional operator environment.

The Magnum 240 comes with Case IH’s Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) as standard. CVT involves an innovative four-gear range system that allows drivers to change speeds dramatically without having to manually shift. The 200 and 220 have the option of Powershift transmission or CVT.

“Over its 25-year history, the Magnum brand has become synonymous with innovation, durability and productivity and has set industry standards,” Pete said.
