Cropweek 2012 – Case IH Magnum Series Tractor

Case IH showcased some of the newest offerings in its line of high horsepower front wheel assist tractors at this years Crop Production Week show in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The Magnum series of tractors offer farmers a number of improvements for the 2012-13 line that run the spectrum from improved horsepower to improved comfort. The tractors tier 4 engine not only meets the standards for the upcoming 2014 tier 4 emission requirements, but also delivers more horsepower and greater fuel efficiency. The tractor also features more user friendly options from simple things like a new armrest with built in controls to a new Automatic Productivity Management (APM) system that networks the engine, transmission, PTO, EHC (Electronic Hitch Control) and the in-cab controls. The APM system, once set at the desired speed, harmonizes those systems to operate at the most efficient level possible.

I spoke with Darryl Priel of Case IH about the new line as well as some of the things we can see in the 2013 models, and got a tour of one the units as well.
