Building on its 18 years of leadership in independent-track technology, Case IH has now introduced its new Magnum Rowtrac tractor. Two new models will be welcomed by any producer who has soil conditions that require better flotation and reduced compaction. A proven Case IH oscillating rear-track system is paired with front tire options to fit virtually any row width. This system keeps the power on the ground through the tightest turns, improves maneuverability, reduces berming and improves operator control of the tractor.
“Whether raising sugar beets in North Dakota, potatoes in Idaho or rice in the Delta, farmers will find our new Magnum Rowtrac meets their unique cropping needs through a wide variety of row spacing and belt options,” explained Zach Hetterick, Case IH Marketing Manager, High Horsepower Tractors. “And customers have told us that it outperforms other two-track options with better handling and a smoother ride. The flotation provided by the tracks allows them to get into the fields sooner since it avoids ruts and compaction, and doesn’t make divots when turning around.”
Hetterick notes that corn, soybean and wheat producers also will benefit from the improved flotation and weight distribution Magnum Rowtrac provides when pulling today’s increasingly wider, heavier equipment.
“Now that specialty crop producers have access to tractors with row spacings and tread widths adaptable to their cropping systems, they can put that extra flotation and efficient track
technology to work on their farm,” Hetterick said. Row spacings on the Magnum Rowtrac can be set at 20, 22, 30, 34, 36, 38 or 40 inches. Narrow and wide undercarriage options give producers the ability to choose tracks in four widths: 16, 18, 24 or 30 inches.
“Timing is critical with high-value, specialty crops,” Hetterick said. “Our new Magnum Rowtrac tractors will help producers better manage wet conditions. Plus, these tractors are highly compatible with the specialty equipment used to grow these crops and have features, such as the CVT transmission, which can greatly increase productivity.”
