Case IH expands the Puma CVX series in the 131 and 160hp power range / for the first time with EfficientPower technology – lower fuel consumption – higher performance.
The Puma 160 CVX is rated at 160 hp
Thanks to the huge worldwide success of the Puma CVX, Case IH is now extending this series of tractors with three new models. The Puma 130 CVX has a power rating of 131 hp (171 hp maximum power with Power Management), the Puma 145 CVX has 146 hp (188 hp maximum power with Power Management) and the Puma 160 CVX is rated at 160 hp (203 hp maximum power with Power Management).
The exterior appearance of the new Puma CVX series reflects its compact design. The rear section of the hood is now much narrower. As a result the view of the working area in front of the tractor is further improved. The short wheelbase provides great manoeuvrability and a small turning radius. As a result, the three new Puma CVX models are ideal all-round tractors.
The new Puma CVXs are powered by the very latest engine technology. The engine is a 6.7 litre, six-cylinder, common-rail turbo-diesel equipped as standard with Engine Power Management. This system delivers up to 30 hp more power, depending on the situation, increasing performance by up to 22 percent for transport jobs or PTO work, for example.
The Puma CVX models offer the most powerful Power Management system currently available, delivering more additional power than any other tractor in this class.
Clean performance thanks to new EfficientPower technology
The three new Puma CVX models are the first Case IH tractors to be equipped as standard with EfficientPower technology. Experience in the field shows that more than 10 percent can be saved on fuel compared to conventional engine technology. At the same time, engine performance is improved, providing a better response. Part of EfficientPower technology is the post-treatment of exhaust gas based on Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR). In addition to meeting strict Tier 4 emission regulations, it also reduces fuel consumption.
SCR is based on an adapted system that has already been used with great success on trucks. Unlike other systems, no changes are required to the cooling system of the tractor. As a result, there are no technical compromises and operational reliability is increased.
The hydraulic performance of the Puma CVX has also been optimised. Lifting power is now up to 8.3 tonnes, allowing even really heavy mounted implements to be handled with ease. In addition, the hydraulic oil flow rate available has been increased to up to 140 litres per minute. Up to eight hydraulic remote valves and a power beyond connection are available.
Best in class in many criteria
The new Puma CVX models feature all the strengths of the Puma CVX series – simple operation, highest productivity, economical operating costs, comfort for the driver and quality in manufacturing and servicing.
"Thanks to the ongoing technical developments of a range of systems, we have been able to increase the productivity of the new Puma CVX models by around ten percent. In key areas these tractors are the best in class and deliver top performance, low fuel consumption and have powerful hydraulics. Of course, the new Puma CVX models have inherited all the other strengths of the series – from the unique control concept to the quietest cab and legendary driving comfort," reports Franz Josef Silber, Case IH Product Manager for this series.
Straightforward control concept for more comfort
The new models are equipped as standard with the new MultiController armrest. The operator is able to control all key functions with a single hand without moving away from the Multicontroller: transmission settings such as cruise control or forward/reverse shuttle, as well as 3-point linkage and remote valves. Everything else is controlled using the Intuitive Control Panel (ICP) integrated into the armrest for perfect ergonomics. The MultiController armrest is integrated directly into the driver's seat so that it follows every movement. The position of the MultiController armrest can also be adjusted electrically as an option.
The electro-hydraulic joystick can be used to operate a front loader, mid-mounted remote valves or the rear-mounted remotes. Mechanically controlled remote valves are also available for the first time in this series.
Intuitive control concept at your fingertips
The Integrated Control Panel - the ICP - is integrated into the new
armrest and is designed to ideally complement the operation of the Multicontroller. Easy-to-use touch-sensitive keys are provided for controlling various tractor functions. The keys are arranged logically over an image of the tractor, prompting less experienced drivers to intuitively select the right control.
This panel features an intuitive layout to enable easy operation of the key tractor functions.
Well-equipped for advanced farming
The new Puma CVX models are also ideally equipped for Advanced Farming System techniques. All tractor functions, plus the Accuguide™ steering system with data mapping and ISOBUS-compatible machines, can be easily controlled using one of the optional AFS monitors made by Case IH.
There is a choice between the new AFS Pro 300 integrated into the armrest, or the separate AFS Pro 600, both featuring colour touchscreen controls for easy operation. The integrated AFS 300 monitor is also equipped with an interface for up to three cameras.
Extended range of standard specifications
Case IH has made numerous improvements to details in the standard equipment for the new range of models. The front axle is now category III (4100 kg) with category IV (4900 kg) also available.
All new Puma CVX models are produced at the St. Valentin plant in Austria and are available from autumn 2010 onwards.
EfficientPower technology on full Puma range with 2011
From 2011 onwards the big Pumas are fitted with EfficientPower technology as well.
