Put Record-setting Efficiency to Work on Your Farm

In newly released Nebraska Tractor Test Laboratory results, the Steiger 620 tractor set new records for fluid-efficient drawbar horsepower and maximum pull.

It’s one thing to generate a lot of horsepower. But no tractor more efficiently moves that power to the ground and the implement you’re pulling than the Case IH Steiger® 620. Similarly, that fluid efficiency permeates your entire operation all the way to your bottom line.

In recent tests at the University of Nebraska Tractor Test Laboratory (NTTL), the Steiger 620 tractor set new records for drawbar fuel efficiency, drawbar horsepower and maximum pull — outperforming all models ever tested and proving the Steiger 620 is the most fluid-efficient and highest drawbar horsepower tractor in the world.1 And it’s fluid efficiency — including diesel fuel and Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) — that translates directly to lower operating costs.

In addition to the Steiger 620 achieving the highest marks ever recorded for any tractor tested at NTTL, the Steiger 580 scored the second-highest drawbar fuel economy ever recorded* at 17.53 horsepower hours per gallon — 6.63 percent higher than the tested competition in its power class.2

The NTTL is the officially designated tractor testing station for the United States and tests tractors according to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) codes. Twenty-nine countries adhere to the OECD tractor test codes, with active test stations in 25 countries around the world.

Powerful fuel economy

Whether in the lab or in the field — where it really matters — our patented Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) emissions technology provides the most power and best fuel economy, even when pulling the heaviest loads. Because engines run cleaner and cooler and the power they generate transfers efficiently via the transmission and driveline, your bottom line benefits from better fluid efficiency plus additional power dedicated to the drawbar.

With Case IH SCR engines, there’s no particulate filter to clean, no regeneration period and 600 operating hours between oil changes. Steiger engines are designed with maximum power while saving diesel and DEF. Average fluid operating cost is 2.2 percent less across Steiger tractors (370 to 620 horsepower) than comparable competitive models.3

Today’s farming economy demands you focus mightily on finding ways to improve performance while at the same time lowering operating costs. So talk to your Case IH dealer about we can help you get there. Remember: on average, Steiger tractors cost up to $1,000 less per year to own and maintain than comparable John Deere® models.4 It’s just another example of how our Customer Driven Product Design process helps ensure Case IH equipment is built for High-Efficiency Farming.

Results based on diesel consumption (gal./hr.) multiplied by diesel price ($/gal.) plus DEF consumption (gal./hr.) multiplied by DEF price ($/gal.).

42.1% lower total operating cost by weighted average ($0.0023/hp-hr.). Yearly costs assume usage of 685 hours and average of 75% power.
