Case IH updates European Steiger range
The latest Case IH tractors allow operators to customise the number of steering turns needed to take the tractor from lock to lock as needed.

The European arm of Case IH is introducing 14 new models in its Quadtrac and Steiger AFS Connect ranges of tracked and wheeled articulated tractors for the 2021 season.

The upgrade will comprise eight Quadtrac models, ranging from 525-692 horsepower, and six Steiger wheeled tractors, from 469-558hp, each with the AFS Connect technology that Case IH says enables a two-way transfer of data from the machine to the farm office computer.

There are currently no plans to bring the new models to the Australian market.

The new models are equipped with the 25cm AFS Pro 1200 display screen and four exterior camera feeds – which with permission can be viewed remotely by both farmers and dealers using the online Case IH AFS Connect portal.

This enables dealers to remotely upload software updates, and use remote service support to remotely identify maintenance and service needs without needing to visit the machine.

All models meet Stage V emissions standards without the need for a diesel particulate filter, and a redesign to reduce time needed for servicing means daily service points can be reached from ground level, and the oil change service interval is 600 hours.

Powershift transmissions are available across the range, while the continuously variable CVXDrive transmission is available for Steiger 420/470/500 and Quadtrac 470/500/540 models – a system that CaseIH says helps improve fuel efficiency and increase productivity from faster cycle times.

Buyers of the Quadtrac 470/500/540 and Steiger 500 AFS Connect tractors also have the option of new saddle tanks, increasing fuel capacity by 44 per cent from 1,230 to 1,779 litres.

Further features designed to minimise downtime include Adaptive Steering Control (ASC), a variable-rate steering system established on other Case IH tractors which allows the ratio between the number of steering wheel turns made and the steering angle to be altered according to the operator’s requirements.

In this way, the number of steering turns needed to take the tractor from lock to lock can be adjusted in relation to the work in hand, and time spent turning reduced. The system is controlled through the tractor’s AFS terminal.

An updated cabin interior is in place across the range, with automotive-grade materials and styling and a new heating, ventilation and air conditioning system.

The redesigned Multicontroller armrest has eight control buttons, an encoder knob for full fingertip control and a new Multicontroller joystick with four programmable hot keys, while the steering system has adjustable steering ratios for faster field turns.
