Operator Environment

Unmatched Simplicity and Luxury in the Cab

Engineers at Case IH started with a clean slate, then used years of research and input from our most qualified experts: You. The result is an interior finished with automotive quality materials and designed to provide an in-cab experience like no other with a multicontrol armrest, multiple power sources, and storage & visibility features.

Exterior Design

Attractiveness Meets Functionality

The Magnum series tractor has evolved styling and features to deliver exactly what you need to make your life easier and more productive.

1.  LED Grill Lights (optional) New LED grill lights provide increased front and side visibility.

2.  360-Degree Egress Lighting Located at every angle around the tractor to give you better visibility upon exiting the cab in low light situations.

3.  Four Camera Heads Connections for 4 cameras are standard with technology cab packages. Front and rear cameras are included with the luxury cab package.

4.  Telescoping Mirrors Electronic telescoping mirrors are controlled from the tractor cab for easy adjustments.

5.  Semi-active Cab Suspension (optional) Improved cab comfort reduces operator fatigue for a smooth ride on long days in the field.

6.  Breakaway-style Marker Lights Up your visibility with marker lights designed to break away if they encounter an obstacle but won’t break off.

7.  Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensors The optional tire pressure monitoring sensors allow you to monitor and view tire pressure through the AFS Pro 1200 display

Axles & Suspension

Designed for Consistent Dependability

The Case IH MFD front axle with saddle suspension improves productivity through better traction, and front duals improve power to the ground to reduce compaction. The simple design and solid construction leads to improved stability - keeping you from bouncing and jarring in the cab - and minimizes the number of moving parts, which means fewer service requirements.

Hydraulics & Hitches

Easier Hitch and Hydraulic Control From the Cab

Control your hitches and hydraulics from the MultiControl Armrest with built-in 3-point hitch control and configurable electro-hydraulic remote (EHR) levers.

Magnum series tractors provide up to 75 gpm hydraulic flow, allowing operators to run at lower engine rpm in order to conserve fuel without affecting operational performance. Choose between 3 to 6 remote valves to match the machine's needs.

Hitch options include: Standard Category 4N/3 or 3N/3 rear hitches - depending on model - boasting a lift capacity up to 19,900 lb. Front 3-pt hitches - capable of 1,000 rpm PTO speed - are also available as factory-installed options on Magnum 250–380 models.
