New paint job for Case IH Puma
For the past few seasons, Case IH has released a limited run of Pumas known as ‘Sugar Specials’ in the lead up to harvest. It’s a tractor specially fitted to handle the demands of the annual crush.
This year the tractors have a special paint finish ‘Viper Stryker Red’, as seen on the Autonomous Concept Vehicle (ACV). This metallic tint to the iconic Case IH ‘red’ is proving popular with customers.
- The ‘Sugar Special’ Puma also features:
- 50km/h gearbox (up from 40km/h)
- Front axle suspension
- Air and hydraulic brakes
- Higher flow hydraulics of 150L/min
- Electric mirrors
“These Pumas work around the clock during the harvest season. Running alongside the harvesters – which don’t stop – they collect the cane into bins on the back of the tractor, deliver to waiting trains, before racing back for the next load,” said Seamus McCarthy, Product Manager for Mid-Horsepower and Compact Tractors for Case IH Australia/New Zealand.
“They spend the majority of their time from June through to December on haul-out, and in some places may be running 24 hours a day. So, it’s easy to see why this special fit-out is key to optimising their speed, manoeuvrability and resilience in the field.”
