Case IH Puma 140-175 tractors benefit from a number of new features for model year 2022, designed to enhance productivity and enrich the operating experience. Following on from the success of the updated long wheelbase Puma 185-240 series, the new Puma 140-175 standard wheelbase series, with maximum power from 155hp-200hp, is upgraded across areas including vehicle presentation, driveline behaviour and cab ergonomics.
The profile of the series remains the same, with three versions which focus on specific customer requirements. The entry level Puma 140-165 is the economic choice, the Puma 150 and 165 Multicontroller provides customers with more automation, and the Puma CVXDrive delivers premium productivity.
New productivity features and cab enhancements
The new Puma 140-175 models build on the positive feedback and reaction from customers of the recently-revised long wheelbase model year ‘21 Puma 185-240 tractors, with enhancements and improvements aimed at benefiting both owner and operator.
A redesigned entrance with Magnum-style steps provides easier access, while in-cab upgrades include phone mount, USB power ports and a tablet mount to ease in-cab management. Interior materials have been upgraded to premium-quality, automotive-type cab trim, and a new premium Case IH leather steering wheel will increase the driving appeal.
Visibility on the Multicontroller and CVXDrive models is improved thanks to a new wider-sweeping low- mount wiper which covers 60% more area, and there is also a new cool-box available for refreshments. For loader users a new advanced joystick, with integral forward/reverse shuttle and gear-changing features, will improve cycle times.
At the rear of the new Puma models, top link stowage ergonomics and the hydraulic connections have both been improved for greater robustness. Other enhancements include LED marker lights and an air-line connection for inflation and air cleaning.
Puma CVXDrive models have been subject to transmission upgrades, with Case IH engineers having focused on developing the driving experience by improving the shuttle and acceleration/deceleration behaviour and enhancing the drive pedal sensitivity. There is also now greater Multicontroller sensitivity and position detection, with an override capability added to the cruise control pedal, which customers will appreciate when turning at the headland. CVXDrive settings can be easily customised via the AFS Pro 700 display.
New Case IH customer packages
Three new packages available for the Puma 140-175 tractors will make it easier for customers to choose their ideal specification. The Selection Package, for entry level Puma 140-165 models, meets essential customer requirements. Puma Multicontroller and Puma CVXDrive tractors are available with two packages, Advanced and Professional. The Advanced package pre-selects the most common features many customers require for daily operations, while the Professional package is focused on AFS technology, being guidance-ready and with the AFS Pro 700 display.
The new tractors are available from spring 2022.
