Case IH releases new AFS Connect Magnum series tractor


Case IH has announced it is expanding its AFS Connect Magnum series tractor lineup with a new 400 horsepower model, the AFS Connect Magnum 400. Combining Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) technology with increased power, the AFS Connect Magnum 400 gives producers the freedom to adjust, manage, monitor and transfer data the way they want. In addition to a redesigned cab, new AFS Vision Pro operating system, AFS Pro 1200 display, and Automated Brake Assisted Steering, this new model features 435 peak horsepower so producers can farm their way.

“We’re unlocking a level of connectivity and remote monitoring never before seen in a Magnum tractor,” said Jay Barth, Case IH high-horsepower marketing manager. “We’re excited to introduce the newest member of the Magnum family. The goal of infusing AFS Connect with a 400 horsepower Magnum is to help improve producers’ workflow, productivity and efficiency for those demanding jobs that require additional power.”

The AFS Connect portal is a gateway to the AFS Connect Magnum series tractor enables producers to precisely manage their farm, fleet and data from a desktop or mobile device while securely transferring data to and from the cloud. Users can log in to AFS Connect to view current field operations, fleet information, agronomic data and more, remotely keeping an eye on their operation, whether they are in or outside the cab. Farm owners and managers then have the freedom to share selected agronomic data with third-party partners of their choosing, down to the field level.

Added connectivity with these three features provides more support, reducing downtime and keeping operators in the field:

Remote display viewing allows a manager or dealer to view exactly what an operator is seeing on the AFS Pro 1200 display in the cab to help identify problems and gain deeper insight.

Dealers can also use remote service support to identify maintenance and service needs and proactively determine what parts are required. Remote software updates allow for wireless updates to the operating system.

“The integrated technology in the AFS Connect Magnum series tractor enables seamless communication between producers and their trusted partners and providers, whether 3 miles or 300 miles away,” said Chris Dempsey, Case IH Advanced Farming Systems marketing manager. “The AFS Connect Magnum gives you the freedom to farm the way you want. It provides countless opportunities to maximize in-field productivity but also gives peace of mind that everything is running smoothly when life pulls you out of the field.”
