The Steiger 715 Quadtrac, already open for orders, delivers built-in power and speed to cover more ground in less time. This newest Steiger model introduces the new heavy-duty Quadtrac undercarriage that offers increased traction to keep up with the engine’s horsepower. But it also provides the maneuverability needed to go anywhere, with better visibility and roadability to improve the driving experience in and out of the field. Plus, with a modified hood, redesigned exhaust and LED lighting, the sight lines are a thing of beauty.
Farmall 75C Electric Tractor

Coupled with easy-to-use automated tech features, this quiet, comfortable, zero-emission utility tractor offers maximum versatility for jobs like maintaining vineyards, clearing an airfield, or managing a small herd.
Axial-Flow Combine and Early Riser Planter
Narrow operating windows make maximizing productivity essential during planting and harvest, regardless of farm size. That’s why Case IH has purposefully designed its latest models of the Early Riser planter, Early Riser 2120, and Axial-Flow combine, Axial-Flow 160 series, to ensure peak performance for all producers. Both equipment solutions deliver advanced technology to small- and mid-scale operations at a price point that makes sense for their operation.

Case IH is previewing the Pro 1200 Guidance Kit to provide a simple and effective tech solution for operators looking to add precision to their entire fleet. Designed to enhance or install fundamental precision features, this aftermarket connectivity solution will be on display at the Farm Progress Show.

Raven Cart Automation seamlessly synchronizes the cart’s heading and speed with the combine during the unload on-the-go operation and simplifies the process for operators of all skill levels.

Hay Baler and Mower Warranties
To provide customers with peace of mind during hay season, RB5, HD Pro, RB456A round balers, DC3 and DC5 series mower conditioners will now come with a two-year base warranty. For these round balers, a three-year pickup warranty has been added as well.
