The industry leader in comfort
Backed by the STEIGER tradition
This Series from Case IH combines the tradition of the legendary STEIGER
tractors and the requirements of the 21st century.
No compromise large acreage technology for maximum productivity -
as proven in the industry’s highest accolade: the 24 hour ploughing
More choice in the top power class. STEIGER and QUADTRAC tractors
are tuned for maximum performance and offer an ease of operation and
cab comfort comparable only with the Magnum. This STX Series offers
large agricultural operations more choice than ever in the power class
from 389hp(cv) / 286kW to 543hp(cv) / 399kW: six models that differ
not only in their horsepower, but also in their technical conception, in
three variants, making it possible for every enterprise to decide which
model best meets its requirements.
Based on the experience of more than 50,000 tractors built at the
Case IH facility in Fargo, North Dakota, the tradition of STEIGER tractors
continues with two series.
STEIGER – the legendary articulated tractor. Four equally large
wheels, four wheel drive and a long wheelbase transfer all the power to
QUADTRAC - the flagship has four independently suspended crawler
tracks and a 3.91m wheelbase. Optimum traction and ground adjustment
at all times with minimum ground pressure make this the tractor for the
heaviest ground conditions.
Case IH has the perfect STEIGER and QUADTRAC Series for your operation. Choose from three major models ranging from 389 to 543 horsepower
in Heavy-Duty wheeled, Scraper and QUADTRAC versions.

READY TO RUN RELIABLY
Awesome power from 12.9 and 14.9 litre engines
Power growth of up to 54hp (40kW)
16-speed Full Powershift with Autoshift feature
Transport speeds up to 37kph
At the heart of every STEIGER and QUADTRAC tractor is an engine
designed to deliver maximum horsepower with enhanced efficiency.
The most important factor in a powershift is not the total number of gears
you have to choose from, but how many are in the primary working range.
Electronically controlled engines in the STEIGER and QUADTRAC
tractors ensure peak power growth without burning unnecessary fuel for
Torque rise of up to 40 percent lets you get through tough spots without
downshifting. Drawbar pull holds steady even as conditions change in the
field and torque peaks with 2539Nm at 1400rpm. When engine rpm

drops under rated load, the engine provides additional power to give you
up to 54 more horsepower. With that kind of power growth, you have
the boost you need to lug through low spots and other difficult terrain.
Perfect power transfer. The most important factor in a powershift is
not the total number of gears you have to choose from, but how many
are in the primary working range. That’s where the 16-speed Full
Powershift really stands out with nine gears between 5 and 13kph.
Depending on tyre size, this gives you 0.8kph speed splits in the working
range - and a better chance at finding the perfect speed for any job.
The AutoSkip shift feature for the STEIGER and QUADTRAC tractors
skips automatically every other gear between 4 and 13 to help you get up
to speed for faster transport. Pressing the Select Shift button on the front
of the throttle handle allows single shifts for more-precise speed choices
— ideal for precision-farming operations. You can also get from field to
field faster with transport speeds up to 37kph on the road.

To make the most of a new Series four-wheel drive, specify high-capacity
hydraulics, heavy-duty hitch and powerful PTO. When you need to lift,
lower, and power implements, these systems help you do more work.
High performance hydraulics. The hydraulic system of a STEIGER and
QUADTRAC tractor provides power for steering, remotes, power beyond,
and the three-point hitch. A standard 151lpm (159lpm on QUADTRAC
530) pump relies on the efficient pressure-flow-compensating (PFC)
system that delivers the correct flow and pressure where it’s needed when
it’s needed. Specify the 208lpm (216lpm QUADTRAC 530) high-capacity
pump for intensive hydraulic operations such as air seeders and beet
Huge lifting capacity, excellent response. To operate mounted tillage
tools, planters or drills, equip this tractor with a factory-installed 3-point
hitch (not available on scraper versions). You’ll instantly have a lift capacity
of up to 8949kg on QUADTRAC models. The raise/lower switch and
position control are within your natural reach on the armrest console.
True pulling power. STEIGER and QUADTRAC tractors have the
advantage where it really matters–at the drawbar. That’s the common
denominator used to size tillage tools to the tractor. The centre-pull
drawbar design efficiently transfers engine horsepower into pulling power.
Unlike competitive units with drawbars mounted much farther behind the
articulation joint, the drawbar of this tractor is just 250mm from the pivot
point for maximum power transfer and increased frame strength.

Conventional articulated steering gives the QUADTRAC Series full-power
turns within 5.7m with minimal ridging. Easy-effort steering in all conditions allows
you to do more work in less time, without levelling ridges left on headlands.
The QUADTRAC tractor is built to pivot and oscillate
for constant track-to-soil contact over rolling terrain.

tractor features positive drive, self-adjusting tension
and self-cleaning rubber belts.

TRACTION AND DEALER INSTALLED ACCESSORIES
MAXIMUM TRACTION WITH
Four independent tracks
Full power turns with minimal ridging
Built-in weight for easier ballasting
Choice of tyres or tracks
Case IH engineers first introduced the QUADTRAC design in 1996 and it has led
the industry ever since. Like its predecessors, the STX Series QUADTRAC tractor
continues the tradition of setting new industry benchmarks.
The QUADTRAC 380, 430, 480 or 530 in a version with 76 or 91cm tracks
practically “floats” through the fields, giving you a smooth ride with less soil
compaction. That can result in better seed placement, a healthier root zone,
uniform germination and higher yields.
As weight transfer is the key to putting power on the ground, the QUADTRAC
tractor maintains an ideal 50/50 weight distribution under full draft loads. Unlike
a two-track system, which shifts weight from the front to the rear of the track,
the QUADTRAC design evenly divides the weight under load to an almost identical
PSI load at the front and rear of the track. Two-track systems transfer more weight
to the rear, which decreases traction in the front and increases compaction
at the rear. Another advantage of the QUADTRAC design is the positive drive
system. Lugs intersect with bars on the drive wheel to eliminate internal slippage
and ensure minimal ground slippage.
A QUADTRAC tractor offers full-power turns under load, unlike two-track
systems that vary power to each track during turns. This makes it more efficient
in contour and hillside operations because no additional power is required to turn.
Thanks to its built-in weight, a STEIGER or QUADTRAC tractor offers an advantage
over competitive four-wheel drives. Greater gross vehicle weight reduces the
amount of additional ballast needed for peak performance and pulling power. When
necessary, weight can be added to the front or back by attaching cast brackets to
the tractor frame. With the correct ballast, right tyres and recommended PSI, a
Series STEIGER tractor will respond with more pulling power, a smoother ride, and
maximum fuel efficiency.
