Case IH is improving its Puma series tractor lineup to provide operators with greater efficiency, convenience, and operational flexibility.
Some of the updates include longer service intervals, new styling features for greater productivity, and a more comfortable in-cab experience. Case IH announced updates to the Puma models 185-240 in late 2020, and now the Puma models 150 and 165 will incorporate these updates.
J.E. Cadle, mid-range tractor marketing manager, says that aesthetically, it is a whole new looking tractor.
“There’s brand new hoods on it with the newest Case IH styling, and with those new hoods, we’ve got more lighting available. We’ve got LED lights now in the hood, to go with the LED lights that we have standard in the cab. So there’s much more lighting — especially at night, obviously — available on this tractor,” Cadle explains, adding the creature comforts inside got upgraded as well.
On the not-so visible side of things, Case IH has extended the necessary service intervals and improved fuel consumption.
“We’ve updated the emissions system, and with that, we get longer oil change intervals. So we go from 600 to 750 hours on the engine oil change, and our transmission we’ve been able to move up to 1,500 hours between services. So just longer intervals between those services allows you to be more efficient, and with that emissions change.”
