The AdBlue liquid is part of Case IH's High Efficiency Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) exhaust gas after treatment system to keep harmful exhaust emissions to a minimum.

Other upgrades include styling and design changes to the tractor and front axle suspension improvements.

The new Puma models have a long wheelbase with power ranging from 138-180kW (185-240hp) and all models feature a 6.7 litre FPT Industrial six-cylinder engine.

Available with a continuously variable transmission (CVT), this tractor is designed to generate power and optimise fuel efficiency, according to Case IH.

"The reliability of our Puma tractor range has always made it attractive to our customers. We have taken this appeal to the next level with the new design and feature updates," said Case IH ANZ product manager for Mid Horsepower & Compact Tractors, Seamus McCarthy.

"Emission-compliant power has been a major focus of research and development at Case IH and these new Pumas feature the latest in this technology. Our patented High Efficiency SCR exhaust gas after treatment ensures we meet emissions standards without the need for exhaust recirculation, which optimises engine power and performance for customers."

On the Tier 5 Puma Series, engine service interval levels have been extended to an industry-leading 750 hours, while transmission oil service intervals have been pushed out to 1500 hours, meaning fewer oil and filter changes over the lifetime of a machine, lowering the cost of ownership.

Fuel tank size is 390L and the AdBlue tank size is 48L.

New front axle suspension improvements include reactive steering as standard, which allows the wheels to return to a straight position after making a turn, creating an enhanced ride for operators. An adaptive steering control option allows smooth operation and accurate steering in both field and road operations.

The CVT transmission in the new Puma models has improved acceleration and deceleration, according to Case IH, as well as better shuttle behaviour, drive pedal sensitivity, cruise control override, better multi-controller sensitivity, and position detection.
