Video: Case Puma 240 CVT

Check out this short video of the Case Puma 240 CVT in action.

After a quick cup of tea with Darren Miers and the boys from Grain and Food (Ag contractors based near Hamilton), we headed to a local dairy farm with some slurry to spread with the high spec 1250 muck spreader on demo from Giltrap Agri Zone in Cambridge, along with the top-of-the-range Puma 240 CVT.

The Puma range is being brought in in classic and ultimate models, giving the options of as many or few bells and whistles as you prefer. With torrential rain and icy wind, we managed to get onto the paddocks in less than ideal conditions. The big Puma was actually lighter on the paddock than I was expecting. The weight of high spec 12T muck spreader behind was no issue.

Although it is a well (heavy) built machine, the Grain and Food guys had been dragging it around the hills a few days earlier with no trouble. After a day dodging showers, I am sure the big 240 Puma was pleased to be back to the dry clean yard at the end of the day with the rest of the red Grain and Food fleet.
