Engines That Are Proven

Magnum Series tractors use 6.7-liter and 8.7-liter engines produced by FPT Powertrain Technologies, a Case IH sister company and one of the world’s largest engine manufacturers that produces nearly 3 million engines a year. FPT provides the research and testing required to deliver the reliability and durability needed to power today’s agricultural tractors. The 6.7-liter and 8.7-liter engines are used in Magnum Series tractors, as well as the Puma® and Steiger® tractor series and Case IH Axial-Flow® combines.

6.7-Liter Engine For Magnum 180–240 Tractors

Magnum 180–240 row-crop tractors are powered by our 6.7-liter engine. The reliable, proven performance of this engine was introduced by Case IH in 2003 on Maxxum Series tractors, in the Puma Series in 2007 and finally in our mid-horsepower Magnum Series tractors in 2009. The design melds optimum fuel efficiency with quick response to changing conditions and the quality and reliability to handle the toughest farming conditions under heavy engine loads. And like other engines in Case IH tractors, it is Tier 4B compliant and features the Selective Catalytic Reduction system to meet more restrictive emission standards without sacrificing fuel economy or performance.

8.7-Liter Engine for Magnum 250–380 Tractors

The 8.7-liter engine powers the Magnum 250–380 tractors and is designed to meet the tough conditions found in agriculture under heavy engine loads, delivering optimum fuel efficiency and ease of service. This proven engine was introduced by Case IH in Axial-Flow® combines in 2006. It’s ready for your toughest field conditions with up to 35 additional engine horsepower at 2,000 rpm rated speed. And it’s all compliant with the next stage of emission standards that require cleaner exhaust.
