CWS Agricultures Essex Farm Estate has already taken delivery of the first Case IH Steiger Quadtrac which, says farm manager David Watson, impressed him with its low ground pressure and traction. It is a logical purchase,

he says, given that wheeled articulated tractors already feature in the tractor fleet there.

"The Quadtracs combination of low ground pressure and traction is principally what attracted us to the machine," he comments. Here the tractor is being put through its paces with an 8m Simba Top Tilth II cultivator and disc harrow-ring press combination. The Quadtrac is powered by a 14-litres, six-cylinder Cummins engine,

coupled to a 12 speed powershift transmission. All-up weight of the tractor is 19.8 tonnes.
