New 2023 Case IH Vestrum CVXDrive tractors bring better performance, functionality and driving characteristics

  • Latest high-resolution AFS Pro 700 Plus display optimises control
  • CVXDrive transmission features enhanced
  • Improved fit and finish
  • Up to 4 Full EH rear remote.

New features and design refinements incorporated into the four 2023 Case IH Vestrum CVXDrive tractors further enhance the performance, functionality, comfort and driving experience provided by these popular models.

Highlights include enhanced CVXDrive transmission, the latest AFS Pro 700 Plus display, up to four full electrohydraulic rear valves, wet clutch front PTO, and improved fit & finish. All Vestrum CVXDrive models are powered by fuel-efficient NEF 4.4-litre, four-cylinder Stage V engines rated from 100hp to 130hp, but which develop up to 140hp.

Christel Diebolt, Product Marketing Manager, states: “The Vestrum CVXDrive has gained a strong following amongst customers who have limited shed and field sizes but want the technology and comfort found in larger tractors – and the unmatched benefits of an innovative continuously variable transmission (CVT). With the best transmission, operator environment and versatility in this class, a Vestrum is at home in the field, on the road or working in confined areas with a front loader. Moreover, the Vestrum perfectly fits below the Maxxum range by delivering premium features in a compact size.”

Providing excellent efficiency and versatility, the CVXDrive transmission incorporates two mechanical ranges and enables infinite adjustment of forward speed up to 40 km/h, while its ECO function allows this to be achieved at 1700 engine rpm to minimise fuel use. Linked to the tractor’s APM system, which enables the operator to set the desired operating speed while it takes care of everything else, the transmission provides optimum performance and has an Active Hold feature for additional safety.

On Vestrum CVXDrive models, transmission operation has been enhanced with additional ‘clever’ CVT operating features. In response to customer research, driving characteristics have been improved to maximise shuttle and acceleration/deceleration response, while drive pedal sensitivity has been refined, sensitivity and position detection of the Multicontroller enhanced, and cruise control pedal override incorporated.

An option to improve productivity even further are up to four Electrohydraulic Remotes for the most demanding tasks.

The new four-pillar cab has been made even more productive and enjoyable to use. It is suspended for maximum comfort, with numerous external and internal improvements.

Inside, operators will appreciate the excellent all-round visibility and premium quality trim, with improved fit and finish around the headliner and pillars, covers for the gas struts supporting the door and rear window, plus self-cancelling indicators. The automotive-like experience is enhanced by the convenient A-post display with integrated mirror and cool storage compartment whichare now standard on all versions, not to mention the optional Case IH leather steering wheel,

A stand-out feature in the new cab, the new AFS Pro 700 Plus control module incorporates a 35% larger high-resolution, tablet-style glass screen which is coated to resist glare and fingerprints. With 15GB of storage, it has a quick-start menu, operates faster, provides multi-tasking capability to optimise productivity and can accommodate up to four camera inputs. It can be mounted either on the MultiController armrest or optional monitor rail which incorporates an integrated wiring harness and two USB sockets to power tablets and mobile ‘phones.

New options include a monitor rail with integrated harness guide and two USB sockets. For farmers who have implements that use tablets for machine control via an app, a RAM® mount tablet and/or mobile phone holder kit is also available.

On the outside, new entry steps offer easier, safer access and the redesigned front wiper, previously only available with the panorama low roof, covers 65% more screen area and is available on all versions. There is also a new integrated foldable LED beacon holder and a new LED side/position lights which increase visibility.

Vestrum CVXDrive was the first Case IH model in this sector to combine the company’s CVXDrive transmission with Automatic Productivity Management (APM) for maximum efficiency and performance. Aimed at medium-sized dairy and arable enterprises, the tractor’s transmission and 4.5m turning circle make it ideal for front loader work, PTO tasks, light tillage and transport duties.
