A new Steiger tractor with more power and speed leads the 2024 Case IH lineup as the machinery manufacturer looks to deliver more purposeful design, technology, and performance.
This week at the Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Illinois, farmers will get their first look at the most powerful tractor Case IH has ever produced — the Steiger 715 Quadtrac.
With a 715 horsepower-rated, 778 peak horsepower engine, the tractor delivers built-in power and speed to cover more ground in less time, but it’s also nimble enough for any challenge, says Tom Curley, Case IH global product manager for Steiger.
“The Steiger 715 Quadtrac is not just our most powerful tractor to date – it delivers power with purpose. It puts more power to the ground to do more in a day, while being nimble enough to navigate a single lane of traffic,” says Curley. “With the addition of the 715, the Steiger line is positioned as one of Case IH’s most flexible tractor offerings.”
The Steiger 715 Quadtrac story focuses on power, but it also delivers greater efficiency, the company says. The model introduces the new heavy-duty Quadtrac undercarriage that offers increased traction to keep up with the engine’s horsepower. It also provides the maneuverability needed to go anywhere, with better visibility and roadability to improve the driving experience in and out of the field, thanks in part to a new hood design, redesigned exhaust and LED lighting.
The tractor touts a new FPT Industrial brand C16 twin-stage-turbine engine developed in collaboration with Case IH specifically for this tractor. There’s also an increased fuel capacity of up to 520 gal, which means more time spent in the field.
Case IH says the Steiger 715 Quadtrac gives operators better data visibility, connectivity and automation. AFS AccuGuide sets the stage for pass-to-pass accuracy with customizable, repeatable accuracy levels to match any operation, while AFS AccuTurn enables hands-free steering and automatic, repeatable end-row turns.
