Case IH recently added a premium tractor in a compact design to its livestock portfolio with the new Vestrum series tractor.
The tractor will deliver the comfort and power of a high-horsepower Case IH tractor, with the maneuverability that comes with a compact design. It will have a premium cab, which is new for tractors in this class.
It will be first seen in Canada at the Crop Stop (Sept. 23 and 24) and Outdoor Dairy Days (Sept. 21 and 22) events being held at the site of Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show.
“Before the Vestrum, producers couldn’t get a tractor in the 100 horsepower class with this amount of versatility and comfort,” said Greg Lucey, Case IH Farmall marketing manager. “This all-purpose, premium tractor offers a range of functionality in a class all of its own.”
Designed to handle even the heaviest tasks, the Vestrum tractor has a powerful 4-cylinder engine with a Wastegate turbocharger. The lineup consists of two models — Vestrum 100 and Vestrum 130 — with 28.5-gallon-per-minute maximum hydraulic pump flowrate. With a 100 or 130 hp rating and a lift capacity of 6,700 pounds, the Vestrum tractor has enough power for a variety of applications, such as planting and baling.
The short wheelbase, 55-degree steering angle and smaller chassis make tight spaces easy for the Vestrum tractor to maneuver. The size, power and maneuverability enable the Vestrum tractor to take on a variety of applications from dairy and beef operations to hay, forage and loader work, as well as winter snow removal and specialty crops. The LED light package allows work to start before sunrise and continue after sunset.
The Vestrum series offers two convenient transmission options: CVXDrive continuously variable transmission and ActiveDrive8 dual-clutch transmission. Vestrum is the first Case IH tractor in the 100 hp class available with CVXDrive or ActiveDrive8 transmission options. CVXDrive automatically selects the most efficient gear ratio and engine speed to achieve target ground speed. It is optimal for applications on hilly terrains or frequent load changes. ActiveDrive 8 offers a wide range of working speeds without torque interruptions, ideal for long days in the field.
Premium comforts in a compact design
Like larger Case IH tractors, the Vestrum series tractor is designed with premium comforts but in a smaller and more maneuverable compact design. Compatible with optional Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) and ISOBUS technologies, the Vestrum series tractor can be customized for specific operations. From the user-friendly in-cab Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) Pro 700 display, all main settings are adjustable, including gear setting, general operation and setup displays.
A SurroundVision cab with a standard high-visibility roof panel allows for a 360-degree view of operations. The MultiControl armrest keeps all key controls in reach for added comfort and efficiency.
Modern styling, including a sleek hood and grill design, give this tractor a luxury look and feel while a Bluetooth radio with a hands-free function keeps producers conveniently connected while inside the cab.
