Puma 260 CVXDrive, technology upgrade for Case IH tractor
Designed and built at the Case IH plant in Sankt Valentin, Austria, the new Puma 260 CVXDrive was unveiled at the latest EIMA. The designers of the CNH Group have revised the overall design of the tractor starting with the bonnet, which is now more aggressive and eye-catching. The Puma 260 CVXDrive is equipped with the 6.7 litre FPT NEF engine with 280 hp (without power boost) and 302 hp (with power boost). Among the new features introduced by Case IH are larger and stronger axles, to which 2.05 metre rear tyres can be fitted, allowing greater traction by transferring the engine power to the ground. One of the most interesting upgrades on the Puma 260 CVXDrive model is the quieter and larger cab (the same as the Optum model), and consequently a larger glass area. The heated and ventilated active suspension seat, Case IH steering wheel, electronic key (FOB) for keyless operation, engine start button and premium audio system enhance operator comfort. The operating armrest, which includes configurable controls, and the AFS Pro 1200 touchscreen terminal, enhance the machine's technological equipment. With the new screen, operators can not only change settings and automatically record operating data, but also - via the AFS Connect data transmission function - transfer data immediately and bidirectionally between the tractor and the MyCaseIH portal.
