West Country Farming & Machinery Show exhibitor, Case IH, has been recognised as a 2023 Good Design® Award Winner for the Farmall 75C Electric and the Steiger Quadtrac 715 tractors. The award, presented by the Chicago Athenaeum, showcases global industrial innovation and cutting-edge graphical designs.
“The principle behind the development of the Quadtrac 715 is not simply more power,” said Franz Josef Silber, Case IH product marketing manager for high-horsepower and 4wd tractors. “Our aim was to create a machine that matches the requirements of our region’s largest farms, to operate implements at their ideal speed, producing higher workrates and allowing operations to be performed at the ideal time, even in tough working conditions, to make the most of short weather windows.
“We also wanted to ensure soil protection via a bigger footprint and fewer passes, which also means greater efficiency and minimal trafficked land.”
Farmall 75C Electric
The Farmall 75C Electric (pictured) is Case IH’s first fully electric tractor. Sporting a brand-new design with diesel-like performance and power, the tractor is designed for agriculture’s toughest jobs, says Case IH.
The electrification of the Farmall coupled with the reduction in wear and tear on parts and maintenance costs, can provide users with a reduction in operating expenses when compared to diesel tractors, the company explains. It also has offboard digital features and additional automation capabilities like Safety Mode.
The Quadtrac 715 is the most powerful Quadtrac tractor, delivering 778 peak engine horsepower, greater traction with reduced compaction, enhanced LED lighting to extend daily operations into the night, and a new hood.
“From Farm Machine 2024, to ASABE and now Good Design, Case IH is being recognised for the innovations we’re making to serve farmers,” added Silber. “Awards are nice, but we never stop at ‘good enough’. Evolution is in our blood at Case IH, and we are honored to receive recognition from prestigious organisations like Good Design.”
