Upgraded Farmall C range revealed / First international show for new Luxxum tractors and latest generation Maxxum models.
Case IH is using EIMA 2016, the international farm machinery show to be held in Bologna, Italy, from November 9-13, 2016, to launch an upgraded Farmall C tractor range, while the show will represent the first international exhibition for the new Luxxum range – a 2016 Tractor of the Year finalist – plus the revised Maxxum range.
Farmall C range revised
Examples from the improved seven-model, 58-114hp Farmall C tractor range, incorporating a number of new features for 2017, will make their European debut at EIMA 2016,. Like the larger models in the Case IH range, they can now be specified with the Multicontroller armrest for fingertip control of key tractor functions including transmission and hydraulics. Maximum lift capacity on the four largest tractors can now be increased to 4,400kg when an optional second assister ram is specified. Further options include a three-speed (540/540E/1,000rpm) PTO, and an ‘eco’ 40kph top speed achieved at lower engine rpm, plus the ability to specify tractors loader-ready from the factory.
Luxxum makes international show debut
Spanning 99-117hp, the new Luxxum models launched earlier this autumn will also be seen for the first time at a major international show. Mid-range tractors with maximum specification levels, they feature a 32F/32R automatic gearshift with power shuttle, the Multicontroller armrest with integrated loader joystick, and cab and front axle suspension. The transmission offers four powershift steps and eight ranges, and can be set to shift progressively within each of the lower four ranges for field work, and through the higher four for road travel.
Stage IV Maxxum models refreshed
The Maxxum range has been restyled and improved for next year, with four 115-145hp four-cylinder models and two 145hp six-cylinder tractors all meeting Stage IV emissions legislation. Further Improvements include a new work light package, revised styling and a single-piece windscreen. In the cab there are upgraded seat choices, and the option of Class 3 ISOBUS control on Maxxum Multicontroller and Maxxum CVX models, allowing compatible implements to control tractor operation for maximum efficiency. HMC II Headland Management eases operation at field ends while, at the rear of the tractors, new spool valve positioning with colour-coded covers provides easier identification when connecting implement hydraulic services.
Full range of Case IH products
Other exhibits will include recent additions to the tractor range, including the 270-300hp Optum – upper medium size tractor category winner in the Machine of the Year 2016 awards – and the unique rear-tracked Magnum Rowtrac, plus Puma tractor models. Axial-Flow combines will include a 140 series model incorporating concave section size reductions and other upgrades announced last year.
