CNH Industrial N.V., London / CNH Industrial Österreich GmbH, St. Valentin: Case ICH Magnum AFS Connect – five new models for the European market. Magnum AFS Connect – the next level in data monitoring and management – and new cab comfort standards. Wireless connectivity allows for instant communication and two-way data transfer between machine and manager / New full-length door, cab interior, instrumentation, Multicontroller armrest for enhanced operating ease / New brake-assisted steering / Technology from Autonomous Concept Vehicle includes advanced lighting and cameras for ultimate safety / Range extended with new Magnum 400 increasing max power up to 435hp. The range for the European market comprises the following models – Magnum 280, Magnum 310, Magnum 340, Magnum 380 and Magnum 400 – with respective maximum power outputs of 320, 351, 382, 409, and 435hp. The Magnum 400 is available with 21/5 PowerDrive transmission only, offering 40 and 50kph at reduced engine speed. All models feature 8.7-litre FPT Industrial Cursor 9 six-cylinder turbocharged and intercooled engines which use the latest FPT Hi-eSCR2 technology to meet EU Stage V emissions legislation, with 13 patented developments, including a new catalyst, resulting in cleaner combustion.
“The new Magnum development began when we set out to research and understand what users today are looking for in this class and size of tractor, spending time with farmers across the world to maximise our understanding of their needs and requirements,” says Brad Lukac, Case IH global product manager for Magnum. “It was an exercise that involved manufacturing, marketing and quality standards staff not just from the Magnum plant in Racine, USA, but also from Case IH around the world, enabling them to exchange and compare ideas around what was important in different countries and global regions, from North America to Europe to Australia and beyond. From this we tested concepts both in the 3D design facility at our Burr Ridge research and development site in Illinois, USA, and out in the field. The result is a new range that recognises the broad needs of farmers across those regions, and while it meets the requirements of those innovative, forward-thinking farmers who are exploiting the potential of new precision technology, it does so in a way that retains ease of operation for those who may be less technology-minded.”
“The new Multicontroller armrest now has four configurable buttons on the new Multicontroller joystick and a further four on the armrest, plus a turn-and-press encoder dial for selecting functions on the AFS 1200 monitor, and industry-exclusive configurable remote valve switches to allow drivers to set their tractor up the way they want to operate it. Key tractor operating data such as fuel level and coolant temperature can be gauged quickly on the new compact VIS2 smartscreen display on the right front cab pillar, which replaces the former individual displays in the pillar.” … read more – agrartechnik-jobs.de, lmv-jobboerse – Manfred Lorenzen, Soest
