New Tracked Magnum Rowtrac in Tractor of the Year Battle

A new tracked version of Case IH’s popular Magnum model is amongst the finalists for the 2015 Tractor of the Year (TOTY).

Entered alongside its updated wheeled cousin, the Magnum Rowtrac uses the company’s Quadtrac experience, and marks its entry into the tracked market at this HP. Judged across a range of criteria including innovation, efficiency, comfort and horsepower-to-price ratio, the winner will be announced at the EIMA show in Bologna, Italy in November.

Compared with its twin track competitors, Case IH has stuck with its design philosophy of four contact points on the ground – the suspended wheeled front axle reduces soil disturbance, means that drive is not broken when steering, and less forward / rearward roll compared to some other tracked machines. Differential locks can still be engaged when additional traction is required.

Several track belt options will be available including 16”, 18”, 24 and 30” which can be fitted on a machine for 76”, 80”, 88”, and 120” row spacings.

The new wheeled and tracked Magnum 380s both feature an 8.7 litre “Cursor 9” engine from sister company FPT Industrial producing a maximum power of 435 hp when using the power boost feature. The engine uses the Hi-eSCR system, meeting European Stage IV (Tier 4 Final) exhaust emission regulations.

Hi-eSCR is a further development of the SCR solution used for Stage IIIB, which has proven very successful with simplicity of design, great fuel efficiency and with a best in class engine oil change interval of 600 hours.
