THE Steiger tractor range has turned 65 years and as part of its evolution, the brand has launched its 2024 model year range with improvements including new data management technology and better cab comfort levels.
The new range is an extension of the AFS Connect Steiger series first seen in Australia by Case IH in 2020.
Launched two weeks ago at AgQuip in Gunnedah, the AFS Connect Steiger model offering comprises Rowcrop wheeled models (425hp – 525hp); Wideframe wheeled models (555hp – 645hp); Scraper models (555hp – 645hp); Quadtrac models (475hp – 645hp); and Rowtrac models from 425hp to 525hp.
Power comes from an updated FPT 13L cursor engine that claims greater power and faster engine response, along with improvements in fuel and fluid efficiency.
An exterior and in-cab overhaul includes a newly-designed cab roof styling with integrated overhead grab rails for operator security.
There is also an updated cab interior with new headliner, overhead console and ram mount rails, and the factory option of a second AFS Pro 1200 display.
The Steiger also has available enhancement such as a new premium sound option, with an amplifier, tweeters, 6.5-inch subwoofer with ported box and additional speaker grills; enhanced LED lighting package with greater output options for 360-degree night lighting visibility; and additional front console storage.
CASE IH said that the greater power and fuel-efficiency, enhanced operator comfort, and further refinements to its remote management and data transfer capabilities, the MY24 Steiger line-up offers greater performance, versatility and reliability than ever before.
“The Steiger has become the benchmark for power, efficiency and performance in high horsepower tractors, and the updates on this new range not only reinforce this reputation, but respond to the need for greater levels of productivity and sustainability within modern farming operations,” the company said.
