The new Steiger AFS Connect series available in South Africa

  • Case IH has introduced the Steiger and Quadtrac AFS Connect™ series tractors to Southern Africa with the new models now available for customers to order

The range will include 12 models from 400 to 600 rated engine horsepower. The Steiger AFS Connect wheeled will be available from 400 to 600 horsepower, including 3 special Scraper versions, while the Quadtrac AFS Connect will range from 450 to 600 horsepower. Several upgrades will be included, such as a redesigned cab for superior comfort, as well in-built AFS Connect to reach new levels of productivity.

The new lineup of Steiger AFS Connect  tractors can be configured to fit any operation and is built for a range of applications.

The fuel-efficient PowerDrive powershift transmission delivers fast shifting and a huge 670 peak-horsepower on the Quadtrac 600 model.

The Steiger and Quadtrac AFS Connect tractors also feature larger fuel tanks to cover more hectares before needing to refuel. Producers can keep working long days with 600-hour oil change intervals and ground-level maintenance to lower operation cost and keep your equipment in the field.

“This new Steiger AFS Connect series represents the future direction for the entire Case IH tractor line-up.” said Alexey Savinov, Case IH Asia, Middle East and Africa Product Manager for Steiger.

The connectivity solution from Case IH, AFS Connect, will be embedded into the cab of the tractor, bringing new levels of productivity. It enables two-way data transfer between the machine and its manager. This allows farm managers to manage their farm, fleet and data from their office or mobile device.

“The enhanced levels of connectivity in the new Steiger set this tractor apart, providing more support features, reducing downtime and maximising productivity,” Mr Savinov said.

“From the remote service support that allows dealers to remotely identify maintenance and service needs, to the ability for business owners and managers to monitor operations—even from outside the cab—make the Steiger AFS Connect series a game-changer for our industry,” he said.
