On display at the Case IH stand, which it had with its distributor ECAD, the company showcased the Steiger 500 model from the Steiger series, which come with high horsepower and is designed for large-scale farming. Next to it was the Puma 180 model from the Puma series of multipurpose tractors, designed to handle a variety of tasks in mid-sized livestock and farm operations. The third tractor on display was the JXT75, which is aimed at small-scale farmers looking for a versatile machine.

Speaking about the agriculture sector in Egypt, Nadir Ekiz, product marketing manager for Africa and the Middle East at Case IH, said, “Agriculture is still a significant contributor to Egypt’s economy and despite the small area of arable land available, the country’s agricultural sector is one of the most productive in the world.” Ekiz said that the company is ready to answer the demand for advanced farming equipment and keep pace with the market’s productivity needs. “Our tractors are specifically designed for helping our customers to get the job done efficiently and cost-effectively, exactly the way they want to and whatever the size and type of their farms,” he added.

The Steiger 500 tractor has an output of up to 558 hp, while the Steiger series includes seven models, with outputs from 406 to 608 hp. These tractors have a common rail 12.9 litre FPT engine with a two-stage turbocharger system and a newly-developed cooling system. Steiger tractors also offer precision in tractor and implement control, as well as the biggest cab in its class. The 16-speed, full powershift transmission makes working long hours easier and the tractor has a hitch lift capacity of more than 9,000 kg.

Tractors in the Puma series have intercooled common-rail diesel engines ranging from 142 to 224 hp. The hydraulic system offers precise control and the best-in-class lift capacity of almost 10,500 kg. The tractors can be specified with the new generation of continuously variable transmission which is engineered to deliver the right amount of power for primary tillage, cultivation, planting and transport.

JXT series tractors are compact and easy-to-use. They can be used for soil preparation, to operate implements or pull trailers and for transport, and would be the preferred choice for small landholders. The series has two models with outputs of 55 hp and 75 hp.
