Case IH expands Magnum range
Case IH's new Magnum 370 CVT is the brand's most powerful front wheel assist tractor yet.

Case IH Tractors Product Specialist Peter Elias says the new addition continues to deliver the efficient power that the Magnum Series is known for and is designed to work with larger implements such as planters and tillage rigs.

The new Magnum 370 features a 8.7L Case IH FPT Industrial engine which delivers up to 419 maximum boosted engine horsepower with great fuel efficiency and low operating cost.

Its heavy-duty Surround Frame provides the framework and "working-weight" ballast needed to transfer high horsepower levels to the ground.  To harness this added power, the new Magnum 370 will feature a heavier final drive and rear axle assembly.

"The new CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) for the Magnum models provide excellent mechanical efficiency through an industry-leading four-gear range system," Elias says.

"With the Case IH CVT, you can go from 0 to 50km per hour without having to manually shift. Since the MultiControl handle operates like a propulsion lever, you have more opportunity to concentrate on the task at hand."

Elias adds the operator gets the optimum combination of power, efficiency and ease of operation with the new CVT transmission.

"CVT allows your tractor to find the sweet spot between power and efficiency, homing in on the optimal combination of engine and RPM and transmission gear for the task."

In addition, the CVT provides smooth operation and a continuous selection of working speeds.

Case IH says the simplicity of the CVT technology also makes it ideal for less experienced operators and hired help. The MultiControl armrest controls the CVT in a manner similar to, and even easier to operate than traditional Case IH full Powershift transmissions. .

"It’s an easy transition for older hands along with an easy learning curve for new operators," Elias says.

"With the new CVT transmission and added power in the Magnum 370, producers can take on today’s larger jobs, allowing them to expand their operation."

Case IH says the new CVT will also be released as an additional option for the other models in the Magnum tractor line-up including the Magnum 235, 260, 290, 315, and 340.
