Building on a legacy of high-horsepower row crop tractor performance, Case IH is pleased to announce Model Year 2019 product updates to its Magnum line of tractors. For Model Year 2019, Case IH continues to focus on boosting productivity and performance of both the Magnum wheeled and Magnum Rowtrac tractors. Updates include a new warranty program, factory-fit telematics and advanced subscription to Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) Connect farm management system, a new 21-inch track option and factory-installed Goodyear LSW tire options.
With these updates, the new models are better able to help producers manage operational costs and increase uptime.
New warranty program
All Model Year 2019 Magnum tractors will include a three-year, 2,000-hour factory warranty. This pertains to all models and configurations from Magnum 180 to Magnum 380 tractors. The new program helps manage cost of ownership and provides peace of mind when considering repair costs.
Advanced telematics and AFS Connect subscription
All Model Year 2019 Magnum tractors will come with factory-fit telematics and a one-year advanced subscription to AFS Connect. Case IH AFS Connect is the control center for all tractor-to-cloud-based information transfer and management. Customer driven enhancements to AFS Connect include both agronomic and tractor-related data, allowing producers to work smarter and get more done each day by letting cellular communication be their messenger service. Real-time equipment tracking and capture and analysis of agronomic data enable farmers to optimize their operations.
Additional options for agronomic productivity
Since 2015, Magnum Rowtrac tractors have offered producers a way to address the challenges of traction-limited soils and adverse planting and tillage conditions, all while maintaining the best agronomics possible. In 2019, a new 21-inch track option was added to maximize flotation and minimize plant root zone interference especially in crops planted on beds with 38-inch and 36-inch row spacing. All Model Year 2019 Magnum tractors will be fit with track options that allow a maximum travel speed of 25 mph for all track widths: 16, 18, 21, 24 and 30 inches.
To improve serviceability, all Magnum Rowtrac tractors are now fit with polyurethane roller wheels that feature a lug bolt/wheel hub design to enable simple removal and replacement if ever required. They can be serviced by removing the lug bolts and roller from the hub, installing a new roller and reinstalling the lug bolts.
Factory-installed Goodyear tire options
Magnum wheeled tractors offer excellent performance in an almost limitless variety of applications. New tire technology continually evolves and provides new options for producers. Case IH is pleased to offer new factory-installed Goodyear LSW 1100/45 R46 rear and 1000/40 R32 front tires as an option on Magnum 250, 280, 310, 340 and 380 wheeled tractors.
