High grain prices or low grain prices, high fuel prices or low fuel prices, it’s always good to hold down expenses. The record-breaking fuel efficiency of Case IH Steiger® tractors can help you tighten the clamps.
New results from the University of Nebraska Tractor Test Laboratory confirm the best-in-class fuel efficiency of Case IH Steiger® series tractors. And in these most recent tests, Steiger 540 and Steiger 370 tractors did more than reaffirm their industry-leader status: They broke records. Each set new standards for maximum and reduced drawbar horsepower fuel efficiency and outperformed all other comparable competitive models tested.
These results prove the exclusive Case IH SCR-only emissions system provides the most power and the best fuel and fluid efficiency. The system helps keep you more efficient, too. There’s no particulate filter to clean and no regeneration required. Plus, the 600-operating-hours interval between oil changes helps you keep a lid on operating costs.
Industry-leading engine technology
Testing also shows the Steiger 540 tractors achieved rated speed 20 percent faster than previous models. The Steiger 540 uses an exclusive indirect engine cooling system, which delivers cooling at each turbocharger stage of the Case IH FPT Industrial engine. This provides faster response under dynamic loads and allows the engine to manage after-treatment conversion efficiency in low-load and low-temperature environments.
On average, Case IH SCR-only technology provides an average operating cost savings of 10 percent through enhanced fuel economy.** Our SCR Fuel Savings Calculator can help you see how Case IH Efficient Power can improve fuel efficiency for your operation.
