Case IH has updated the 185, 200, 220, and 240 models from its Puma tractor series for 2021 with features enabling longer service intervals and enhanced drivability and operator comfort. The models are now available to order. Updated Puma 150 and 165 tractors for 2021 will be available for order in March. Puma-series tractors range in maximum power output from 150 to 240 horsepower (112 to 179 kilowatts) by virtue of their Case IH 6.7-liter, six-cylinder engines. Transmission options include PowerDrive and CVXDrive offerings.

“Producers need more time to tackle the tough jobs on their operations, and this Model Year 2021 tractor lineup aims to help provide more uptime, more efficiency and more comfort to make long days feel shorter,” says J.E. Cadle, Case IH marketing manager for the Puma, Maxxum, and Optum tractor series.

Decreased Maintenance Costs

The updated Pumas’ longer service intervals stem in part from new Case IH Hi-eSCR2 technology designed to lower carbon emissions while enhancing horsepower, engine responsiveness, fuel economy, and durability. Engine oil intervals improve to 750 hours, while transmission fluid intervals improve to 1,500 hours. “Not only will increased service intervals save producers time but, also, it helps keep maintenance costs down,” Cadle says.

The updated tractors also provide a redesigned hood with improved LED work lights for safer night work, an in-cab cool box feature for enhanced operator comfort, and a low-mount wiper providing better visibility in all conditions. A redesigned optional front hitch is also available.

A Smoother Drive

Case IH has made also improvements to its optional CVXDrive continuously variable transmission, making the 2021 Pumas easier to drive. As before, CVXDrive lets operators select a target speed, which the transmission will maintain through automatic adjustments that match load conditions. In addition, updated models now include expanded customization to match the transmission’s behavior to any job, as well as smoother acceleration, deceleration, and shuttle behavior. Operators will also enjoy increased drive pedal and MultiController sensitivity, cruise control pedal override, and MultiController low-speed safety lock and position detection.
