The Case IH Optum 3004 CVXDrive has won the “2021 Tractor of the Year” award in the heavyweight tractor category at the China Agricultural Machinery Annual TOP50+ award ceremony. The award ceremony was part of the tenth China Agriculture Machinery High-end Forum, held on September 21-22 in Zhongxiang, Hubei, China.
The event was hosted by the Chinese Academy of Agriculture Mechanization Sciences Group Co., Ltd., Hubei Agricultural Development Center, the Government of Zhongxiang city, and Farm Machinery Magazine.
The event aims to present agricultural machinery technology development trends as well as promote advanced agricultural products and innovations.
Case IH is committed to providing farmers with a wide range of innovative products and services. To comply with the upcoming China IV non-road emission standards, Case IH has launched high-efficiency products that provide an intelligent controlling system and low maintenance costs, such as the award-winning Optum series CVXDrive.
Tractors play an important role in agricultural production. Case IH Optum series tractors are designed to meet customer needs for both middle and large-scale tillage and other operations.
The Optum can be equipped with a heavy duty suspended front axle for use both in the field and on the road.
The Optum 3004 CVXDrive is powered by an FPT NEF engine, which maximizes fuel economy. The tractors feature selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology, a low-maintenance after-treatment system with no exhaust gas recirculation (EGR). The after-treatment system is developed alongside the engine system to maintain the engine’s efficiency and constant-speed fuel economy.
The Optum 3004 CVXDrive has a 630L fuel tank and 96L diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) tank. The hydraulic pumps offer a maximum flow of 220 L/min, while the rear lift capacity is up to 11,058 kg.
Automatic Productivity Management (APM) allows the driver to shift easily, while the ECO driving mode reduces unnecessary fuel consumption. An automatic parking brake technology controls the tractor’s stability.
The cab provides visibility with 5.87 meters of glass, and the noise-cancelling function limits noise to only 69 decibels. These features ensure the Optum series CVXDrive is suitable for all-day operation.
