Longer tracks allow for greater ground contact and traction

The engine powers the latest Case IH 16-speed PowerDrive powershift transmission with Automatic Productivity Management (APM). Introduced on the recently launched Quadtrac AFS Connect line, it features uprated core components.

Case IH says the new heavy-duty track units are significantly different to those on other Quadtrac models. Tracks are 305mm longer for more ground contact, enhanced power transfer, greater traction, and reduced compaction.

Drive wheel diameter is 1008mm, up from 910mm, with five track lugs engaged with the drive wheel, rather than four, to handle the higher torque and maximise track life. 

A new bonnet design, which can be raised 31% higher for enhanced service access, is opened and closed via an electric actuator, operated via a switch in a lockable box near the cab steps.

It also features a new lighting design, with new LED road lights as well as worklights that produce an output of 25,420 lumens, for 11% more illumination power.

These are complemented by new cab-mounted worklights available in three packages, with the top-level package delivering an additional 45,600 lumens output with 360-degree coverage.

New tech and storage areas have been added to the cab interior

A Category 5 drawbar fully matches the new tractor’s implement-handling capacity, while the optional Category 4 three-point hitch lifts 10,092kg.

Up to eight remote valves are supplied from either a 216 litres per minute or optional 428 litres per minute twin-flow SmartTorque hydraulic pump.

Inside the cab, there are new storage areas, while a new headliner incorporates new LED lighting and enhances sound system speaker output from the uprated sound system options.

An integrated rail system in the right-hand headliner and A-post ensures easy monitor attachment. It can carry a second AFS Pro 1200 terminal where required, for AFS AccuGuide steering and AccuTurn Pro headland management, ISOBUS implement management, guidance, and more.

With its 778hp engine, the Quadtrac 715 is the brand’s most powerful tractor

AFS Connect technology allows vehicle and agronomic data recording, including two-way transfer between the tractor and myCase IH online portal, while also allowing remote machine monitoring/support by owners and, with permission, dealers.

“The principle behind the development of the Quadtrac 715 is not simply more power,” says Franz Josef Silber, Case IH product marketing manager for high-horsepower and 4WD tractors.

“Our aim was to create a machine that matches the requirements of our region’s largest farms, to operate implements at their ideal speed, producing higher work rates and allowing operations to be performed at the ideal time, even in tough working conditions, to make the most of short weather windows.

“We also wanted to ensure soil protection via a bigger footprint and fewer passes, which also means greater efficiency and minimal trafficked land.”

The Case IH Quadtrac 715 is set to arrive in Australasia in early 2024.
