Next-level emissions technology and new design features wrapped up in powerful Puma package
12 Oct 2021
The Case IH Puma tractor series has received its first major styling updates in more than a decade, and combined with some key design upgrades, it addresses customer needs and offers the latest in engine and emission technology solutions.
Due to arrive this spring, the new MY2021 Tier 5 Puma Series sports a distinctive new hood with the latest Case IH family styling, and all models now meet Tier 5 emission standards.
The new Puma models have a long wheelbase with horsepower ranging from 185-240 – and still feature the impressive 6.7-litre FPT Industrial six-cylinder engine. Available with the continuously variable transmission (CVT), this tractor is designed to generate power and optimise fuel efficiency.
"The reliability of our Puma tractor range has always made it attractive to our customers. We have taken this appeal to the next level with the new design and feature updates," said Case IH ANZ Product Manager for Mid Horsepower & Compact Tractors, Seamus McCarthy.
"Emission-compliant power has been a major focus of research and development at Case IH and these new Pumas feature the latest in this technology. Our patented High Efficiency Selective Catalytic Reduction exhaust gas after treatment ensures we meet emissions standards without the need for exhaust recirculation, which optimises engine power and performance for customers."
On the Tier 5 Puma Series, engine service interval levels have been extended to an industry-leading 750 hours, while transmission oil service intervals have been pushed out to 1500 hours, meaning fewer oil and filter changes over the lifetime of a machine, lowering the cost of ownership.

New front axle suspension improvements include reactive steering as standard, which allows the wheels to return to a straight position after making a turn, creating an enhanced ride for operators. An adaptive steering control option allows smooth operation and accurate steering in both field and road operations.
The CVT transmission is renowned for offering intelligent efficiency. In these new Puma models, there's improved acceleration and deceleration, better shuttle behaviour, as well as drive pedal sensitivity, cruise control override, better multi-controller sensitivity, and position detection.
Other features include:
- Optional hood-mounted camera;
- Fully integrated front hitch is optional, with increased linkage travel and front wheel clearance;
- Upgraded road and work lights, including hood work light options, as featured on Case IH Optum and Magnum tractors;
- A low-mounted front windscreen wiper for improved visibility in wet or dusty conditions;
- Cool box with cover on the front end of the steering column;
- New left-hand aluminium steps with high performance LED ingress lighting; and
- Optional hand wash tank.
