Field Leading Power and Performance

Case IH Magnum tractor 6.7 and 8.7L engines combine class-leading horsepower with proven emissions technology. What does that mean to you? Optimum power and fuel efficiency from an engine that has a legacy of performing in the toughest agricultural applications.

Reliable and Durable

FPT engines are developed and tested in Burr Ridge, Illinois. Our 6.7 and 8.7 L engines have clocked over 25 million hours on North American farms, field-tested and proven in the conditions you face.

Power Growth for Tough Operations

FPT engines are designed to develop up to 14% power growth, providing the power you need when you need it. They also feature a power boost of up to 35 additional horsepower to maintain speed and productivity with PTO applications.

Powerful and Proven

Case IH has been committed to an SCR-only solution for its unmatched overall fluid efficiency and power. Plus, it eliminates the need for additional components such as DPF and CEGR. You can enjoy greater productivity since the system allows for 600 hours between oil changes and doesn’t require regeneration.

Fuel Efficiency Without Compromise

With industry-exclusive options, Magnum engines can offer the next level of innovation like engine braking, which reduces drivetrain wear and improves machine control. Transmission


Power that Puts You in Total Control

Today’s powerful lineup of Magnum tractors is engineered to make your job easier and more productive, allowing you to keep up with the demands of farming. And, with two industry-leading transmissions to choose from, you can be assured you have the most efficient power for your operation.

CVXDrive Transmission

Industry leading CVXDrive Transmission delivers uninterrupted power to the ground, incorporating three ranges to be more efficient and deliver more power for tough jobs. And oo from zero to 25 mph standard (30 mph opt.) simply by moving a lever. CVXDrive automatically selects the best transmission range for the desired speed or load, eliminating the need for clutching and shifting.

With ActiveStop (or power neutral), the engine holds the tractor in place, letting you more easily start and stop on inclines without using the clutch or brake. And CVXDrive software updates provide faster acceleration when using PTO-powered implements.

PowerDrive Powershift Transmission

Proven 19-speed PowerDrive powershift transmission provides ultra-smooth shifting and power transfer for maximum productivity. And with Diesel SaverTM APM, you set the speed, rpm and shift frequency, and your transmission does the rest, so the job gets done faster and at the lowest possible cost.

Perfectly matched for high horsepower demands, and provide efficiency in heavy draft load applications.
