Tractor feature: Updates to Case IH Maxxum and Puma

Case IH has made new changes to its 2022 Maxxum and Puma tractors; improvements that they say were designed with operators in mind

Updates have been made to the 2022 model Case IH Maxxum

Changes made to Case IH’s Maxxum and Puma tractor ranges put operator comfort front and centre. The new Puma SWB models (150hp to 180hp) now feature CVT transmission options to complement the existing Powershift offering.

Upgrades to the Model Year 2022 Maxxum and Puma SWB tractors include a low-mounted front screen wiper with an increased sweep area for better visibility, new high-performance LED safety lighting features, an improved entrance area with aluminium steps, and an integrated cool box.

Case IH New Zealand product manager for mid-horsepower and compact tractors Seamus McCarthy says the upgrades help enhance the versatility of what are already its most versatile tractors.

“Obviously, when the operator is more comfortable in the cab, this can only help to reduce fatigue and increase productivity in the field,” he says.

He added that several modifications to the tractors were aimed at boosting connectivity and providing improved performance, with a new electronic joystick and improved telematics allowing for greater efficiency and precision.

“Fast and reliable in-field connectivity is critical in realising the full potential of precision agriculture, with a direct result of that being an improvement in the profitability of farming operations, and Case IH is working hard to deliver that potential across our lower horse-power ranges,” Seamus says.

“Customer expectations are increasingly high when it comes to the sophistication of their machinery, and the latest updates on our Maxxums and Pumas are an example of listening to our customers and interpreting their needs through the new features.”

Other in-cab updates to the 2022 Maxxum and Puma SWB series tractors include a new monitor bar for USB outlets, better drive pedal sensitivity and improved acceleration behaviour, a new rear-view mirror and steering wheel, and an advanced loader joystick with reverser.

The new models are now available for order, with the new Pumas to arrive Down Under mid-year and the Maxxum expected in the second half of 2022.
