More Productivity, Less Fuel

Case IH SCR Technology
Case IH Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology improves horsepower, engine responsiveness, fuel economy and durability, all while lowering emissions. It's innovation that meets government standards without sacrificing production.



  • Delivers Efficient Power with a Case IH 6.7-liter, 6 cylinder turbocharged, intercooled engine
  • PowerBoost - boosts your engine by up to 35 HP to meet today's hydraulic demands
  • Rated engine working speed of 2,200 rpm
  • 4 valves per cylinder for improved fuel economy and power
  • Extended oil change intervals save you time and maintenance costs
  • Electronic Common Rail fuel system gives you fast responses in changing field conditions


Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR)

  • Meets the tough new Tier 4 B/Final emissions standards
  • SCR after-treatment converts nitrogen oxides into nitrogen and water vapors
  • Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF), a non-toxic mixture, triggers the change
  • Engine design reduces particulate matter created by incomplete fuel burning
  • 10% lower operating costs with exhaust as clean as the intake air


More Power, Better Fuel Economy

  • SCR maximizes horsepower because the system is separate from the engine
  • The design leads to better fuel economy and improved engine durability, while giving you more flexibility to choose among diesel fuel varieties and grades
  • Case IH has a full team of professionals to help you tailor your equipment to fit the way you farm and meet new challenges



More Usable Horsepower When and Where You Need It
The Case IH Puma lineup has plenty of power in a mid-size package, plus features like Power Boost, Power Growth, and the CVXDrive transmission option - to deliver more power when and where you need it most, while keeping you productive.


CVXDrive Continuously Variable Transmission


Smooth, Seamless Changes
Select the target speed, and the transmission automatically adjusts to deliver the desired speed and match load conditions. No manual clutching or shifting required.


Active Stop Feature
Provides a powered neutral that prevents tractor movement, even with fully loaded trailers on steep slopes. Great for chores that require frequent starting and stopping.


Fuel Saving
Maintains power to the ground. Shifting of gears is done automatically and never under a load, which helps saves fuel and allows operator to focus on other operational needs.


Easy to Operate
The simplicity of our CVXDrive technology makes it ideal for less experienced operators to maintain peak efficiency in all field conditions and applications.


PowerDrive Powershift Transmission


Options to Fit Your Needs
Standard 18x6 PowerDrive Powershift Transmission. 19x6 PowerDrive Powershift Transmission option available. Operating speeds up to 30 mph.


Made to Last
Robust, proven and reliable transmission providing longer life


Maximize Productivity
Nine gears in the field working range 0 to maximize on productivity


Speed Matching
Allows best match of travel speed to engine RPM

PTO, Hydraulics & Hitches

Get the Job Done

Case IH Puma series tractors have the hitch lift capacity, the hydraulic component features and the hydraulic flow available to handle the application demands.



  • Features soft-start modulation protection and interchangeable 1⅜-inch (35-mm) shaft
  • Puma  185-240 Tier 4 B/Final models feature a 540-/1,000 rpm reversible shaft
  • Puma 150 and 165 Tier 4 B/Final models feature a 540-/1,000-rpm reversible shaft: 6 spline , 540 rpm; 21 spline, 1,000 rpm
  • Optional 1,000 rpm PTO with a 1⅜-inch (44-mm) 20-spline shaft
  • CVXDrive models come standard with 1,000/1,000E PTO: 1,000E mode at 1,700 rpm to save fuel in less demanding operations; 1,000 mode at 1,900 rpm for heavier conditions
  • The fender-mounted PTO controls switch allows you to turn off the PTO without getting back into the cab
  • Auto PTO Management option automatically turns the PTO on or off at a predetermined height of the 3-point hitch, reducing operator effort and protecting PTO driveline components
  • Front hitch and PTO option increases versatility and productivity

Hydraulic System

The Puma series tractors offer a high-capacity, closed-center, pressure-flow compensating hydraulic system. The main implement pump is separate from the 17 gpm (65 Lpm) steering and services pump.

  • The standard main implement pump on the short wheelbase (SWB) Puma models, 150 and 165, delivers up to 26.5 gpm (100 Lpm) for a total flow of 43.6 gpm (165 Lpm)
  • The standard main implement pump on the long wheelbase (LWB) Puma models, 185-240, delivers up to 30 gpm (113 Lpm), with total a total flow of 47 gpm (178 Lpm)
  • An optional 39.6-gpm (150-Lpm) main pump is available on LWB models, increasing total tractor hydraulic flow to 56.6 gpm (216 Lpm)
  • New hydraulic remote valves increase flow at the remotes
  • Three or four standard mechanical remotes with selectable detents
  • Up to five optional electro-hydraulic remotes
  • Hydraulic mode switches can be tailored to a specific configuration
  • The new optional rear-fender-mounted control switch allows handy activation of a frequently used hydraulic circuit (No. 1) from a conveniently accessible ground-level location

3-point Hitch

  • Rear fender-mounted hitch raise/lower switches for easy positioning of the hitch from the ground
  • Standard wheelbase (SWB) Puma  150-165 Tier 4 B/Final models feature a 7,900-lb (3,584-kg) lift capacity
  • 12,787-lb (5,800-kg) lift capacity on the long wheelbase (LWB) Puma 185-240 Tier 4 B/Final models
  • Optional 15,200-lb (6,894-kg) hitch lift capacity on LWB models for loads generated by larger implements (9,200-lb or 4,173-kg on the SWB models)

Advanced Farming Systems (AFS)

Integrated Precision Farming Technology

Factory-installed AFS components and dealer-installed options on Puma tractors offer dependability and convenience and give you the flexibility you need to help ensure you’re ready to begin gathering data as soon as you pull into the field.


Plug-and-Play Auto guidance Ready — Right from the Factory

Minimizing skips and overlaps saves on fuel, seed, fertilizer and chemicals. Precisely placing seeds can improve agronomic performance. Achieving year-to-year repeatable accuracy — as tight as plus or minus 1 inch — becomes reality with AFS AccuGuide auto guidance.


AFS Pro 700

In a single display, the AFS Pro 700 display provides control functionality and simple integration for Case IH LB4 large square balers and RB5 round balers, Early Riser® planters, Precision Disk drills and ISOBUS-compliant implements. Plus, you can use your display with third-party ISOBUS-compliant implements.


Maintenance & Uptime

Rugged Components and Easy Maintenance

It's the nature of farming today — producers need to cover more ground in less time. You can't afford to be sidelined for costly service or lengthy maintenance. That's why we engineered Puma tractors with rugged Case IH components proven to provide years of reliable service. And why we added features like the easy-opening hood, convenient service steps to the cab and a right-hand service access door for easy cleanout and serviceability. We also made sure that daily maintenance checks are quick, easy and at eye level.


Case IH High-Quality Manufacturing
