On September 21-22, the award ceremony, which was part of the tenth China Agriculture Machinery High-end Forum was held in Zhongxiang, Hubei, China. The event was hosted by the Chinese Academy of Agriculture Mechanisation Sciences Group Co., Ltd., Hubei Agricultural Development Center, the Government of Zhongxiang city, and Farm Machinery Magazine. The event aimed at presenting agricultural machinery technology development trends and promoting advanced agricultural products and innovations.
Tractors play an important role in agricultural production. Case IH Optum series tractors have been designed to meet customer needs for both middle and large-scale tillage and other operations. The company has launched high-efficiency products that provide an intelligent controlling system and low maintenance costs, such as the award-winning Optum series CVXDrive.
The Optum 3004 CVXDrive is powered by a powerful and reliable FPT NEF engine, which maximises fuel economy. The tractors feature industry-leading selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology and a low-maintenance after-treatment system with no exhaust gas recirculation (EGR). Moreover, the device can also be equipped with a heavy duty suspended front axle to deliver the best performance and efficiency, both in the field and on the road.
Automatic Productivity Management (APM) allows the driver to shift easily while the ECO driving mode reduces unnecessary fuel consumption. It also consists of an automatic parking brake technology that controls the tractor’s stability. In addition to this, the cab provides outstanding visibility, with a noise-cancelling function that limits noise to only 69 db. These features ensure that the Optum series CVXDrive is suitable for all-day operation.
