New for 2018: Endless Applications and All-season Productivity
Take control of every season, every application with the new intuitive, easy-to-use Steiger® series tractors with CVXDrive continuously variable transmission. It’s the first continuously variable transmission for an articulated 4WD tractor and delivers the highest horsepower available on the market —up to 605 peak horsepower – so you can take on year-round farming applications and specialty applications.
Unmatched 4WD Tractor Adaptability
- Industry-leading track technology features four individually driven, positive drive, oscillating tracks. Each track maintains constant contact with the ground for a great ride, optimal ground pressure, superior flotation and better traction.
- Exclusive positive-drive system delivers continuous power at all times, even in wet or slippery spots.
- Available on Steiger 470, 500, 540, 580, and 620.
Legendary 4-track Design
For 20 years, we’ve led and perfected track technology with our Steiger® Quadtrac® and Rowtrac™ tractors. One major advantage Steiger tractors have over any competition is their independent, 4-track design, which provides outstanding traction and flotation, better handling, less rutting and berming, and full power on the ground in curves and turns — offering flexibility to operate in a variety of conditions, and make the most of short operating windows.
The Most Powerful Tractor in the Industry
Steiger tractors offer up to 682 peak horsepower — the most in the industry. And with 10 percent Power Growth capabilities built into all our engines, they can handle even more in difficult conditions without compromising performance.
Reliable and Durable
Case IH 8.7L and 12.9L FPT engines are engineered and tested in Burr Ridge, IL. Our engines have clocked over 25 million hours on North American farms alone, making them field tested and field proven, providing the reliability you need.
Superior Operating Range
Steiger Quadtrac tractors feature a superior operating range, with rated power at 2100 RPM, peak power at 1900 RPM, and peak torque at 1400 RPM. Case IH tractors can be lugged to a lower engine RPM, producing more torque, than the competition. This means less downshifting or “kicking-to-neutral,” especially in tough field conditions.
Unmatched Fuel Efficiency
Case IH has been committed to an SCR-only solution for its unmatched fuel efficiency and power. Plus, it eliminates the need for additional components such as DPF and CEGR. You can enjoy greater productivity since the system allows for 600 hours between oil changes and doesn’t require regeneration.
Two stage turbochagers feature a low pressure, cooling circuit system that provides increased power without compromising fuel efficiency. A small turbocharger delivers low-RPM responsiveness and a second, larger one delivers maximum boost at high RPMs. Each has its own intercooler and radiator for added efficiency.

For The First Time, A Choice Of Transmissions
Now you can choose between the new CVXDrive™ continuously variable transmission and the time-tested PowerDrive powershift transmission.
CVXDrive Continuously Variable Transmission
Set It and Forget It
Dial in the exact speed you need for the job — from 3 feet per minute up to 25 mph. No need to use the clutch or shift; the Steiger CVXDrive automatically selects the most efficient transmission range to work at the speed you need. Features familiar controls, including the integrated split-throttle on the MultiControl Armrest found in Magnum®, Optum®, Puma® and Maxxum® continuously variable transmission tractors.
Continuous Hydraulic Flow
The Steiger CVXDrive delivers unprecedented efficiency with greater precision and control over inputs, whether planting, seeding, fertilizing or spraying. It’s flexibility that aids year-round use for any number of jobs. Up to 605 peak horsepower on Steiger 540 hp models provides the power and torque needed for the toughest conditions you experience.
Add Productivity to Row Crop Applications
The Steiger tractor won’t take up space in the shed. From planting to harvest, CVXDrive puts you in greater control of every application, all year long. Including harvesting when pulling grain carts and hauling trailers and slurry tankers.
Expand Your Business With Specialty Applications
Your productivity can go beyond the typical agricultural use. Steiger CVXDrive tractors deliver the constant hydraulics and low-speed torque for multiple operation including:
- Laying tile for subsurface drainage
- Land leveling and earth moving
- Land Reclamation
PowerDrive Powershift Transmission
Record-Setting Power and Performance
The Steiger 620 wheeled tractor with a PowerDrive powershift transmission led the competition and set records for drawbar fuel efficiency, drawbar horsepower and maximum pull at the 2017 Nebraska Tractor Test Laboratory.
Uses operator input to provide automatic shifting that matches engine power and ground speed. Also helps save fuel — while planting at a constant 6 mph, you can save up to 24 percent on fuel while still achieving desired plant population.
Proven Ease of Use & Efficiency
The 16-speed PowerDrive powershift offers 20 percent faster shifting speed, with reliably smooth shifting that reduces operator fatigue, especially while roading or transporting equipment between fields. Plus, Case IH engineering tests have proven the enhancements to the PowerDrive can save up to 2 percent horsepower - helping you work more productively.
Made to Last
The PowerDrive transmission also features larger, helical-cut gears and clutch packs that deliver years of service while transmitting up to 682 peak horsepower to the ground for large-scale farming.
