Case IH, a brand of CNH Industrial, has been awarded for the excellence of its agricultural machinery at the China International Agriculture Machinery Exhibition (CIAME), one of the most important events for agricultural mechanisation in China. The 2017 edition of the annual event took place in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province, from 26 - 28 October. 

The CIAME Awards are conferred on the best technologies and machines on show under the auspices of the China Association of Agricultural Machinery Manufacturers (CAAMM), China Association of Agricultural Mechanisation (CAAM), and China Agricultural Machinery Distribution Association (CAMDA). The Magnum 3154 Tractor stood out among 332 products entered from other companies to win the Product Innovation Award at this year’s exhibition. This 315 hp tractor provides operators with the ultimate mix of industry-leading horsepower and fuel efficiency. 

“We are especially proud to win an award judged by experts in the world’s biggest and most demanding agricultural economy,” said Marco Gerbi, Case IH Brand leader for China, “This is very welcome recognition of the Magnum tractor’s innovation, reliability and productivity.”

The Case IH Magnum Tractor Series are produced at the Harbin plant, the largest agricultural manufacturing facility in Northeast China that offers a wide range of product solutions to suit the specific needs of Chinese customers.

Since 1987, Magnum Series tractors have evolved to become the first choice of large scale farmers and contractors who demand the best. Thirty years later, Magnum tractors are used in some of the most demanding agricultural applications worldwide. They have built a legacy for exceptional performance, reliability and durability that has been built on customers’ needs.

The Product Innovation Award is another cause for celebration at Case IH, which commemorates its 175th anniversary in 2017. This year also marks the 30th anniversary of the Magnum Tractor Series. Following its launch in 1987, the 1988 model year Magnum tractor was the first designed and built under the name of Case IH, which resulted from the merger of J.I.
