Case IH’s Steiger Quadtrac and Rowtrac tractor lineup is getting performance boost for 2019 with several drive system advancements, including a new high-speed Rowtrac design, and a factory-fit enhanced telematics offering that increases management ability.
“For more than 20 years, we have been relentless in refinement of our track technology, giving us a head start and allowing us to lead the pack,” said Mitch Kaiser, Case IH Steiger tractor marketing manager. “This series of tractors is already strong, smart and simple, and these advancements are helping producers get even more power, performance and productivity that leads to lower total cost of ownership.”
Industry-exclusive warranty and technology
The new three-year, 2,000-hour warranty is offered only on Model Year 2019 Steiger tractors used in agriculture applications. Along with the warranty, Steiger tractors now come with factory-fit telematics and a one-year subscription to AFS Connect. Case IH AFS Connect is the control center for monitoring and managing your fleet. Enhanced data sharing capabilities allow you to transfer A/B guidance lines, application and planting prescriptions, and as-applied maps, as well as monitor fault codes and key operating parameters. Producers are now able to both track and transfer data seamlessly to and from their Steiger tractors.
New high-speed track design
Steiger Rowtrac tractors now feature an improved track design for high-speed roading — capable of up to 25 mph — for tracks of all widths with no mechanical speed limitation. The new 21” configuration provides the only narrow-row track option available in the industry to help producers move between fields faster.
Case IH partners with three track suppliers to fit different needs. One of the suppliers, Soucy, offers 18” and 24” belts with five-year prorated warranty on tracks plus a lifetime warranty on traction lug blowout.
A new patented Steiger Quadtrac and Rowtrac design has a fully cast undercarriage beam with roller wheel suspension, which provides increased durability. This design, along with exclusive factory-installed single Goodyear LSW tires, makes Steiger Quadtrac and Rowtrac offers power to the ground with the least amount of compaction.
An additional 90-gallon steel fuel tank option for Rowtrac tractors offers increased productivity. The steel fuel tank also adds durability to the frame and integrates with tri-point oscillation to evenly distribute the weight of the tractor across the frame.
New twin-flow Smart Torque hydraulic pump option gives up to 12% more horsepower to pull heavy loads, such as air seeders or large planters.
