Case IH refreshes Puma tractors

Presented by

Case IH has revealed major styling and emissions upgrades for its Puma tractor series, due to arrive in Australia this Spring.

The Case IH Puma is sporting some exciting new updates

The upgrades to the MY2021 Tier 5 Puma Series are the range’s first major changes in more than a decade, with its new hood featuring the latest Case IH family styling.

The tractors have a longer wheelbase with horsepower ranging from 185-240, depending on the model, and a 6.7 litre FPT Industrial six-cylinder engine, while still meeting Tier 5 emissions standards.

The models are available with continuously variable transmission (CVT), which Case IH says helps to generate more power whilst still optimising fuel consumption.

Changes to the transmission also help to improve acceleration and deceleration as well as contributing to better shuttle behaviour, drive pedal sensitivity, cruise control override, better multi-controller sensitivity and position detection, Case IH says. 

The company has also improved the Pumas' front axle suspension, adding reactive steering to enable the wheels to return to a straight position after making a turn, while an adpative steering control option allows smooth operation and accurate steering in both field and road operations.

Engine service intervals on the Tier 5 Pumas have been extended to what Case IH says is an industry-best 750 hours, and transmission service intervals extended to 1500 hours.

Case IH Australia New Zealand product manager for compact and mid-horsepower tractors Seamus McCarthy says the new features make the Puma series both better to operate in the field, and to own. 

"The reliability of our Puma tractor range has always made it attractive to our customers. We have taken this appeal to the next level with the new design and feature updates," McCarthy says.

"Emission-compliant power has been a major focus of research and development at Case IH, and these new Pumas feature the latest in this technology.

"Our patented High Efficiency Selective Catalytic Reduction exhaust gas after treatment ensures we meet emissions standards without the need for exhaust recirculation, which optimises engine power and performance for customers," he adds.

Other features include upgraded road and work lights, including hood work lights options which are common on Case IH’s Optum and Magnum tractors.

That is in addition to a low-mounted front windscreen wiper, a cool box with cover on the front end of the steering column and aluminium steps with LED lighting. 

Optional features include a hood-mounted camera, fully integrated front hitch, and hand wash tank.

The My2021 Tier 5 Puma Series will arrive in Australia sometime in Spring.
