The new PUMA CVX range extends Case IH’s renowned Puma tractor range with the introduction of two new models featuring continuously variable transmissions that offer new levels of power and productivity while reducing operating cost.
Case Puma 225 CVX
Comprising the PUMA 210 CVX and PUMA 225 CVX, the new range
offers 212hp to 224hp, with a maximum power of up 251hp thanks to Case IH’s
engine power management system.
Case IH has led the industry in CVT transmission design and
tractor technology for the past 15 years with the development of the CVX
tractor range. Designed and
manufactured at the Case IH’s European headquarters in St. Valentin, Austria, the
PUMA CVX is built on this knowledge and expertise. Fans of the current, smaller
capacity range of CVX tractors will be pleased to see that the Puma CVX retains
class-leading features such as, Active Stop, Headland Management Control and
the bar axle as well as options such as reversible fan and exhaust brake, which
enhance productivity and increase efficiency.

The PUMA CVX benefits from a new Multicontroller, the ergonomic
armrest control, which incorporates proven right hand shuttle and fast raise / lower
linkage features. Additional features, such as the Intuitive Control Panel
(ICP), the Fuel Saver (FS) engine performance management system and the AFS PRO
300 touch screen (optional), which incorporates ISO Bus, further enhances
tractor performance and efficiency.
Greater Productivity and
The PUMA CVX offers up to 14% more performance from the engine in
PTO and transport operations, and up to 14% increase in rear linkage capacity
in like-for-like comparisons with competitors’ models.
The transmission is designed to maximise efficiency and reduce
fuel consumption. A 50kph
transport speed is now achieved at reduced engine speed, a fuel-sipping 1550
rpm. The increased efficiency is 9% better than the next best competitor. The
PTO drive line has been designed to maximise productivity and efficiency. A 1000rpm
PTO speed is achieved in line with the maximum power of the engine at 1900rpm,
increasing productivity by up to 8% and increasing fuel efficiency by up to 6%.
At 600 hours, the PUMA CVX boasts the longest engine service
interval in the business, keeping the PUMA CVX working 20% longer than the next
Automatic Productivity Management (APM) monitors the operators
driving strategy and adjusts engine speed and transmission ratio to achieve the
best balance between performance and fuel economy. This has benefited customers
for many thousands of hours by reducing fuel consumption and enhancing operator
Greater comfort and
The spacious Surround-VisionTM Control Centre on the
PUMA CVX offers operators unrivalled comfort and visibility. The
Surround-Vision cab benefits from 5.87m2 of glass area, a low noise
level of 70 dB(A) and the increased functionality of the new Multicontroller,
which ensures the tractor’s controls fall easily to hand, making the PUMA CVX
as intuitive to operate as it is comfortable to drive.
Instrumentation is located on the right hand ‘A’ Post display
in line with Magnum and Steiger products and allows operators to monitor
machine performance at eye level. Optional features of Cab Suspension, Low Frequency seat and Climate
Control are also available.
To further enhance operator comfort Active Front Axle
Suspension (AFAS) is standard on both models. The system monitors the rate of
acceleration of the front of the PUMA CVX then adjusts the pressure within the front
axle suspension system in milliseconds to maximise operator comfort and
