Case IH has launched a series of powerful tractors tailored for the demanding environments encountered by large-scale arable farmers and contractors in the Middle East and Africa.

Case IH has focused on enhancing operator ease and convenience in the new Quadtrac and Steiger tractors. The 2024 models feature numerous upgrades to exterior design, visibility, and cab interior to make long field days less demanding. The visibility for night work has been significantly improved with a 66% increase in lighting, along with two additional front work lights. Cab updates include a new rooftop design, integrated overhead grab rails for operator security, premium sound options, additional storage, and improved technology implementation for enhanced in-field performance.
