Case IH Quadtrac AFS Connect™ receives a Farm Machine 2023 award at SIMA in Europe

10 Nov 2022

The Case IH Quadtrac AFS Connect™ range has received the Farm Machine 2023 award for tractors in the ‘XXL’ category, after being selected by a jury of international journalists representing leading agricultural media across Europe.

Formerly known as the Machine of the Year awards, the newly-titled Farm Machine Awards have recognised innovation in agricultural engineering since 1997. The most recent awards, for machines available for the 2023 model year, were announced on the opening day of SIMA 2022 in Paris. The aim of the awards, says organiser and French agricultural publisher Terre-Net, is to reward innovations that are ‘the most innovative and useful, bringing real added value to the farm through quality of manufacture, design and technology.’


​“To have this recognised by the Farm Machine 2023 judges is a real accolade in our efforts to help such farms boost their productivity.”​

The Quadtrac articulated four-tracked tractor which incorporates wireless connectivity technology, was recently released in Europe.  

“We are delighted that the value of the developments incorporated into the latest Quadtrac AFS Connect range have been recognised in this way,” says Mirco Romagnoli, Vice President of Case IH Europe.

“Since 1997, when the Quadtrac was launched onto the European market, Case IH has continually evolved its design to stay ahead of the developing needs of the largest arable farmers and contractors. The incorporation of AFS Connect technology, which provides them with instant, automated two-way data transfer between the tractor and the myCaseIH online portal – accessible via smartphone or a PC – takes large tractor productivity a significant step forwards, and more than matches the modern need for instant, accessible accountability in every activity on the farm.”

“The 2023 model year Case IH Steiger and Quadtrac tractors with AFS Connect technology use the latest connectivity developments to provide owners with enhanced performance, efficiency and functionality that is central to helping large-scale farms operate in today’s higher-cost environment,” says Christian Huber, Managing Director CNH Industrial Österreich GmbH & Vice President Global Tractor Product Management Case IH. 

“To have this recognised by the Farm Machine 2023 judges is a real accolade in our efforts to help such farms boost their productivity.”
