“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.”
By providing full power to the ground at all times – even when turning or driving in curved areas, Magnum Rowtrac delivers less rutting and berming. This fix-framed row crop machine turns like a traditional tractor while providing a smooth ride like a tracked machine.
Based upon the original, field-proven Quadtrac design, the individually driven, oscillating tracks use a five-axle-per-track design to lower soil pressure, reduce compaction and provide better floatation in the field.
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.
Each of the new models features an 8.7-L engine that cranks either 340 or 380 horsepower. Both use patented Case IH Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR)-only technology to meet Tier 4 B/Final emissions requirements and have proven to keep fuel and fluid costs low.
