It’s truly the “Year of the Tractor” for Case IH as the company announced seven new or redesigned tractor models at the Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Illinois.
The new Steiger 715 Quadtrac headliner is the company’s most powerful tractor ever, with a 715 horsepower-rated, 778 peak horsepower engine.
CASE IH says that the new Steiger 715 sets a new bar for performance, delivering more power to the ground in a nimble four-track design.
In Farmall’s 100th year, the brand also provided a glimpse of what’s in store for the next century of Farmall by unveiling the Farmall 75C Electric. This new tractor is among the smartest electric tractors. The Farmall 75C Electric offers diesel-like performance with an average four-hour run time, fast recharging, and significant operational savings.

With a total weight of 61,200 pounds and a max weight of 72,000 depending on configuration, this newest Steiger model introduces the new heavy-duty Quadtrac undercarriage, offering increased traction to keep up with the engine’s horsepower.
The Quadtrac has an axle width of 88 inches and a wheelbase of 154 inches and is maneuverable with a turning radius under 22 feet.
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. The tractor also includes a modified hood, redesigned exhaust, and LED lighting making for a wide range of viewing from the cab.
The Steiger 715 is equipped with AFS AccuGuide for pass-to-pass accuracy, and AFS AccuTurn provides hands-free steering and automatic end-row turns. This is controlled through dual Pro 1200 displays in the cab, which also provide access to real-time data across a farmer’s entire fleet of connected machinery.
