The Case IH Puma 185-240 range for 2021 includes four CVXDrive and three Multicontroller models which deliver significant improvements in the way they look, feel, drive, and perform compared with previous versions.
Designed for progressive farming businesses who demand a reliable, productive tractor with
advanced technology to maximise uptime and efficiency in the field and on the road, they feature next-generation paint quality, improved service and maintenance points, together with a new electrical harness. Their striking appearance and performance have attracted excellent feedback from existing and prospective Case IH owners.
Powerful, efficient engines
All are powered by 6.7-litre FPT Industrial six-cylinder engines with the highly efficient and
maintenance-free Hi-eSCR after-treatment to help meet Stage V emissions regulations. Powerful, fuel efficient, reliable, and responsive, they deliver 180hp to 240hp at rated speed, and 225hp to 270hp with Power Management. Approved for use with 100% HVO, a synthetic biofuel made from 100% renewable raw materials, they feature lengthened 750-hour engine and 1,500-hour transmission oil change intervals to maximise uptime and lower the cost of ownership.
The engines are housed under a distinctive new hood which can be equipped with a camera above the front linkage to provide a better view over front-mounted implements. Operating into the night new powerful LED road and work lights, project up to 40,000 lumen, ten times greater than previous Puma models.
One of the most significant changes to the Puma CVXDrive is the new operating experience. Building on the highly efficient four-range CVXDrive transmission design, Case IH software engineers have enhanced the performance and driveability with new CVT control features that deliver smoother and more responsive characteristics. Other improvements include shuttle behaviour and drive pedal sensitivity, a cruise pedal override, and higher Multicontroller sensitivity. The settings can be adjusted quickly and easily to suit the operator’s preferences and type of operation on the intuitive AFS Pro 700 display.
To maximise safety on the road, Puma CVXDrive models are offered with Case IH Advanced Trailer Braking, a patented anti-jack-knife feature, ABS to increase safety at high transport speeds and an engine exhaust brake which helps to stop a tractor more quickly and reduces brake wear, especially on long descents.
Maximising the productivity of the new Puma 185-240 models was a priority for Case IH engineers and all are available with a range of standard or optional technologies.
AccuGuide™ autoguidance provides pass-to-pass accuracy of less than 2.5cm, AccuTurn™ Pro automated headland-turning technology enables hands-free headland turns and improves productivity, while Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) Connect Telematics, through the new MYCaseIH portal, allow owners to remotely monitor and manage their farm, fleet and data to optimise tractor performance, productivity, flexibility and uptime.
At the back of the tractor, the rear linkage provides up to 10,403kg of lift capacity, with a new quick-adjust feature which makes it quick and easy to switch from Category 2 to Category 3. Top links are by their nature heavy and a new ergonomic fixing point makes it easier to work with while its working position can be checked by a convenient indicator, while a new K80 drawbar is available for the slider frame.
The new front linkage design, which shares hardware from the Optum models, features improved geometry that increases travel and front wheel clearance. Further Puma 185-240 options include a pneumatic airline which can be connected to multiple ports and fitted with a hose and gun to clean dust and debris from radiators and equipment.
New premium cab
The premium-quality cab provides a quiet, comfortable working environment, enabling operators to get the most out of these highly-productive tractors, including a new wiper which provides 60% greater screen coverage.
New aluminium entry steps, which include a Case IH brand plate, make it easier and safer to get in and out, while LED lighting improves safety at night. There is even the option of specifying a hand wash tank, for operator hygiene and is located next to the step area, unique to Case IH. Operators will also welcome the new cooled storage compartment, optional premium DAB radio with speakers and microphone for hands-free mobile phone calls, and for those digital customers whose tablet and smartphone is indispensable there is the optional monitor rail with mobile phone bracket, tablet holder, charging points and USB sockets.
