Rowtrac All Model Year 2019 Magnum Rowtrac tractors will be fit with track options that allow a maximum travel speed of up to 25 mph for all track widths: 16, 18, 21, 24 and 30 inches. A fixed-frame row crop machine that turns like a traditional tractor, yet floats like a Quadtrac. With 7 different row crop settings, the Magnum Rowtrac can be customized to fit between nearly any row spacing to reduce the compaction without damaging crops. Available on Magnum 310, 340, and 380.
Scraper Application Most Magnum models are equally at home on construction jobsites pulling scrapers for land-leveling, site prep and general earthmoving. Magnum models, 250, 280, 310, 340, and 380, are easily configurable to handle heavier loads encountered in scraper applications.
Field Leading Power and Performance Case IH Magnum tractor 6.7 and 8.7L engines combine class-leading horsepower with proven emissions technology. What does that mean to you? Optimum power and fuel efficiency from an engine that has a legacy of performing in the toughest agricultural applications.
Reliable and Durable FPT engines are developed and tested in Burr Ridge, Illinois. Our 6.7 and 8.7 L engines have clocked over 25 million hours on North American farms, field-tested and proven in the conditions you face.
Power Growth for Tough Operations FPT engines are designed to develop up to 14% power growth, providing the power you need when you need it. They also feature a power boost of up to 35 additional horsepower to maintain speed and productivity with PTO applications.
Powerful and Proven Case IH has been committed to an SCR-only solution for its unmatched overall fluid efficiency and power. Plus, it eliminates the need for additional components such as DPF and CEGR. You can enjoy greater productivity since the system allows for 600 hours between oil changes and doesn’t require regeneration.
Options for the Way You Work Magnum engines offer innovations like engine braking, which reduces drivetrain wear and improves machine control.
Power that Puts You in Total Control Today’s powerful lineup of Magnum tractors is engineered to make your job easier and more productive, allowing you to keep up with the demands of farming. And, with two industry-leading transmissions to choose from, you can be assured you have the most efficient power for your operation.
Total Power Control Industry leading CVXDrive Transmission delivers uninterrupted power to the ground, incorporating three ranges to be more efficient and deliver more power for tough jobs. Plus, with ActiveStop (or power neutral), the engine holds the tractor in place, letting you more easily start and stop on inclines without using the clutch or brake.
Simple Operation Go from zero to 25 mph standard (30 mph opt.) simply by moving a lever. CVXDrive automatically selects the best transmission range for the desired speed or load, eliminating the need for clutching and shifting.
Maximum Fuel Efficiency
In combination with the Diesel Saver APM system, CVXDrive automatically chooses the most fuel efficient combination of engine speed and drivetrain selection to save fuel and reduce costs.
PowerDrive Powershift Transmission
Ultra-Smooth Shifting & Power Transfer Proven 19-speed full powershift transmission delivers ultra-smooth shifting and power transfer for field or road, allowing for maximum productivity.
Fuel Saving Diesel SaverTM Auto Productivity Management (APM) allows maximum fuel efficiency by managing the engine RPM and transmission speed. You set the speed, rpm and shift frequency, and your transmission does the rest, so the job gets done faster and at the lowest possible cost.
Durable & Reliable Powershift transmissions are sized for high horsepower demands, to achieve maximum reliability and durability - even in heavy draft load applications.
Work Comfortably, In Any Condition You put in long hours in the field. Your tractor cab should help you work comfortably every hour of the day. Case IH Magnum series tractors feature a cab that allows greater comfort while in the seat. It is engineered to stabilize your ride, and reduce shaking and bumping in rough terrain.
Surveyor Cab The simple, adjustable suspension in a Case IH Magnum Surveyor cab stabilizes front-to-back and up-and-down motions. It gives you a smoother ride whether on the road or in uneven terrain, reducing fatigue and increasing productivity.
Armrest Adjust your speed, gears and direction and much more without even raising your elbow. The Case IH Multi-Control Armrest, with AFS Pro 700 control center, puts 85% of the controls operators use most at your fingertips.
Backlit Buttons Switching between functions is even simpler with Magnum’s upgraded control center. Different-sized buttons allow for a softer touch and enable you to tell them apart by touch alone.
Visibility With 68 square feet of glass in the cab, Magnum tractors give you an exclusive 360-degree full field of vision, including an unobstructed view of the hitch. The Magnum’s sloped hood optimizes forward visibility.
Lights When circumstances require you to work in darkness, visibility won’t be an issue -- even to the outside row units of your largest planter. Magnum’s LED and HID lights make it easy to get out and make an adjustment, fuel up or do whatever you need to regardless of the time of day.
Heated and Ventilated Seat Magnum’s optional heated and ventilated red leather seat keeps you cool and comfortable in warm months. The heated function relaxes tired muscles and keeps you warm when temperatures drop.
Accessories Keep your cell phone and tablet within easy reach with the Ram Mount System. And our portable cooler, which can be plugged into a Magnum auxiliary power outlet, keeps drinks or meals cool no matter how long you spend in the cab.
Hydraulics & Hitches Remote Valves and Hitch Options for All Your Row Crop Applications
Strong, Versatile Hydraulics Hydraulic flow can be configured to handle most any row-crop application and takes care of loader work too. Magnum tractors provide up to 75 gpm hydraulic flow so you can run at lower engine rpm for increased fuel efficiency without compromising operational performance. Choose between 4, 5 or 6 remote valves to match your machine requirement.
Hitches to Handle More Implements Front Hitch: Available as factory-installed options on the 250–380 models giving you the ability to handle more 3-point implement applications.The front PTO adds to the versatility of this option.
Rear Hitch: Category 4N/3 or 3N/3 hitch depending on model with a lift capacity up to 19,900 lb.
Axle & Suspension Deliver the Most Power to the Ground
Axles Built for a Better Ride Keeping all your tires on the ground is crucial for stability and performance. The Magnum’s front-axle suspension ensures that tires stay perpendicular to the ground for stability, traction and control over rough terrain. And that means a better ride at higher speeds. The design keeps you comfortable in the cab and solid Case IH design minimizes the number of moving parts, which means lower cost of operation.
Iron Matched to the Power Rear axles are sized to match the horsepower to provide smooth and efficient power transfer. The Magnum 380 tractor comes with a 5" diameter rear axle to handle the heaviest loads through the toughest field conditions, providing the durability and longevity expected from a Magnum tractor.
