Corks pop over Magnum's win

The West Australian

The Case IH Magnum 380 CVT tractor has won the prestigious tractor of the year title, at EIMA International in Bologna, Italy.

The winners were determined by a jury of 23 expert journalists representing major European trade publications.

The Magnum 380 CVT won the title because of features such as the CVT continuously variable transmission (known as "CVX" in Europe), the easy to use multi-controller armrest, the new LED lighting packages, and the innovative "Rowtrac" solution which uses a combination of rear tracks and high-tech, low-pressure front tyres.

This solution provides the tractor with greater traction to transfer power to the ground, with minimal soil disturbance compared to standard single-track machines.

"We are honoured to have received the tractor of the year 2015 award," Case IH EMEA (Europe, Africa and the Middle East) vice-president Matthew Foster said at the awards ceremony.

"Twenty-seven years of Magnum tractors means 27 years of approval by the toughest group of testers you can get - farmers in their daily work."

First launched in 1987, the Magnum series has undergone continual improvement, further increasing performance and productivity, reducing fuel consumption and emissions, improving operator comfort and, therefore, optimising the customer's return on investment.
