The new Case IH QUANTUM C is a compact and economical tractor
developed as a true all-rounder for farm and field work and municipal
applications. The “C” in the new name stands for the
tractor’s compact shape and low overall cab height.
Case IH QUANTUM C 95
Two new QUANTUM C models feature powerful and fuel-efficient
engines; the QUANTUM C 85 with 86hp (63 kW) and the QUANTUM C 95
with 97hp (71 kW) engine power. The QUANTUM C replaces the
previous JXC 1085 and 1095 models and features significantly
improved and upgraded standard equipment.
New generation 4.5 litre engine
A new generation
4.5 litre clean burning engine
meets the latest Tier 3 emission standards and offers high performance
and economy. Fitted with turbochargers and a new intercooler as
well as exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) as standard, the engine
complies with emissions legislation and saves more than 4% in
fuel consumption compared to earlier models. This new engine is
distinguished by a low 2300rpm rated speed (200rpm lower than previously)
and improved engine characteristics with a higher torque and optimised
torque rise. In addition, these engines are B100 biofuel compatible.
New transmission technology for comfortable shifting
have also been further developments in the transmission. The popular
2-speed powershift with Powershuttle transmission can now be upgraded
to include the Powerclutch. The Powerclutch device, first seen
on JXU tractors, allows the driver to press a button in the head
of the main gear lever, which releases oil from the clutch packs
and allows gear shifting without need to use the clutch pedal.
Strong frame and more power at the rear
pace with its more powerful engine performance, key components
such as the transmission construction have been significantly strengthened
and the rear hitch has also been improved. These engines now offer
a maximum lift capacity of more than 2600kg and the maximum permissible
towing weight has been increased to 5250kg.
To reflect the need for greater versatility, the standard hydraulic
flow rate available to the remote valves has been increased to
50 litres per minute. For more intensive applications, an optional
high-flow system with a capacity of up to 64 litres per minute
is available, to simultaneously power multiple hydraulic services
or operate hydraulic motors.
The cab equipment in the new QUANTUM C models has also been enhanced
to incorporate ISO-bus technology. A newly-developed control panel
design has improved displays and new diagnostic system enables
easier and quicker maintenance.
