Low profile Quantum CL model joins new Quantum tractor range at SIMA
In addition to giving the tractors a fresh new look reflecting the lines of their larger counterparts, the distinctive new front-end Case IH family styling on new Quantum models has practical benefits. Smooth lines help minimise the risk of either trees or bodywork becoming damaged during work, and enable the wheels to tuck in closely to the chassis for improved turning and manoeuvrability.
For mid-mounted hydraulically-driven implements such as pruning equipment, new Quantum options include a revised, more compact mid-mount valve block which is better integrated and provide easier and faster coupling. Users who wish to expand the versatility of their tractors can now specify an integrated front linkage and PTO option, the 2600kg lift capacity is referring to the rear linkage. There is also a 82litres/minute hydraulic pump option on new Quantum models, to cater for implements with a high oil flow requirement.
Operators of cabbed Quantums will appreciate the optional switchable air filtration system. Where optional Level 4 filtration is specified to remove crop protection spray particles from the incoming air, this new and unique system can be switched between Level 4 and Level 2 filtration (which is designed for dust extraction only) to prolong Level 4 filter life when spraying is not taking place.
The latest 3.4-litre engines, from Case IH partner firm FPT Industrial, power the new Quantum models, meeting Stage IIIB emissions regulations via the use of cooled exhaust gas recirculation (CEGR) and a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC). Oil change interval is 600 hours.
