The new Case IH Puma is powerful, flexible and manoeuverable, and is designed as a multi-purpose tractor. Power for the Puma line is supplied from a proven Case IH 6.7 litre engine. A full powershift transmission with an optional EconoGear helps make maximum use of the available power. An enlarged, ergonomically designed cab leads to efficient and comfortable operation, and features excellent operator visibility. Configurable hydraulics adjust to handle heavy three-point loads and they can range from row crop to utility work.
The engine is rated at up to 180 PTO horsepower, with an additional 25 to 35 horsepower Power Boost available for PTO and transport. The engine has a 600 hour service interval to save maintenance time and investment. There are four models: Puma 165 with 135 PTO horsepower; Puma 180 with 150 PTO horsepower; Puma 195 with 165 PTO horsepower; and the Puma 210 with 180 PTO horsepower.
Another key feature of the new Case IH Puma tractor models is the 18×6 full powershift transmission. A standard Auto-Shift setting for field and transport provides automatic shifting based on the load, for increased productivity and fuel savings.
In addition, a Constant Engine RPM setting shifts to hold the engine speed within a desired range. It holds the revolutions per minute in a chosen range, helping the operator reduce fuel usage while maximizing productivity. A new optional 19th EconoGear economy transport gear reduces engine speed in 19th gear for additional improved fuel economy at top road speeds.
With a hitch-lift capacity of up to 15,873lb, a fender-mounted raise/lower switch and a hitch dampening system, Puma tractors are designed to handle the heavy three-point loads generated by larger implements and allow precise adjustments in the field.
