The new Puma 260 CVXDrive will be previewed. Key features include a larger cab – the quietest Puma cab ever - with new operating armrest including configurable controls and AFS Pro 1200 touchscreen terminal, through which operators can not only make settings and automatically record operating data, but also – via AFS Connect™ telematics – ensure instant two-way data transfer between tractor and the MyCaseIH online portal, plus remote machine monitoring/support and more.
Safeguard Connect debut
Visitors will also be able to learn more about Safeguard Connect, a new combination of added-value telemetry services grouped to encompass all aspects of service support for Case IH Axial-Flow® 250 series combines and larger tractor models. Safeguard Connect, which complements AFS Connect telemetry, includes extended Safeguard warranty (according to market), pre-season inspection, dealer remote support, Max Service 24/7 back-up, AFS Connect subscription and full operator training.
