The range will include in total 14 models, covering 420 to 620 HP range. Quadtrac AFS Connect will be available from 470 to 620 HP, and Steiger AFS Connect from 420 to 500 HP range.
Case IH introduces the new Quadtrac and Steiger AFS Connect series tractor. Recently announced at Commodity Classic in the USA, this new range will be available in Europe during the second half of the year 2020, with some specific features for the European market.
The range will include in total 14 models, covering 420 to 620 HP range. Quadtrac AFS Connect will be available from 470 to 620 HP, and Steiger AFS Connect from 420 to 500 HP range. Several upgrades will be included, such as a redesigned cab and an ultimate connectivity to allow comfort and higher productivity.
The connectivity solution from Case IH, AFS Connect, will be embedded into the cab of the tractor. It enables two-way data transfer between the machine and the manager. This allows farm managers to manage with precision their farm, fleet and data from their office or mobile device.
The connectivity system includes three key components, the AFS Pro 1200 display, the AFS Vision Pro operating system and the AFS Vector Pro receiver. These elements allow users to configure tractor management and precision farming functionality in the way they prefer.

AFS Connect technology also makes it possible for remote display viewing of the tractor’s AFS operating screen by farm owners, managers and – with permission – the dealers supporting their equipment. This is to help identify problems and allow deeper insight to be gained into how they are caused and how they might be addressed.
The PowerDrive powershift transmission is to deliver 20% faster shifting and a record setting 682 peak-horsepower on the Quadtrac 620 model. The CVXDrive – the first continuously variable transmission for an articulated 4WD tractor – automatically balances power and efficiency.
The Quadtrac AFS Connect tractors also feature larger fuel tanks. Case IH says producers can keep working long days with no engine regeneration, 600-hour oil change intervals and ground-level maintenance to lower operation cost and keep the equipment in the field.
