HEAVY-DUTY HEAVYWEIGHT FINDS
WORK IN NEW FIELDS
Steiger & John Deere - Side by Side comparison
A Case IH STEIGER four-wheel drive
tractor is just as at home on a landleveling
site or commercial scraper crew as it is in the farm fields. Whether you
need to pull scrapers, dig catfish ponds,
grade slopes, or level land for roads and
building sites, these tractors are specially designed with added durability to handle the demands of dirt-moving applications.
Ideal for an ejector-type scraper or a carry-all, special scraper versions of the STX Steiger Tractors have heavy-duty axles, heavy-duty drawbars, built-in
frame weight and powerful engines with rugged transmissions.
Also standard on all scraper models are differential locks,
backup alarm, tow cable, and a beacon light.
Proven performance from an engine
ready for anything. Since 2006, the largest Steiger tractors have been
powered by the 12.9-liter FPT Powertrain Technologies
engine. This engine powers Steiger tractors through the
toughest field conditions and is now Tier 4A compliant
with fuel-saving Case IH SCR technology for 10 percent
lower operating costs than previous models. The Steiger
550 and 600 models use a two-stage turbocharger that
offers low-RPM responsiveness and superior boost at
high RPMs. Steiger tractors built their reputation in agriculture, but they have
established themselves as workhorses on construction job sites pulling
scrapers. Moving earth at the lowest-possible cost per yard. The 450, 500,
550 and 600 Steiger models are all available in scraper configurations.
Add weights to ballast for the best
performance with full scraper pans. The
powertrain can efficiently pull scrapers at
speeds above 4 mph (6.5 kph) with engine
speeds above 1700 RPM. A special
scraper quick hitch drawbar with tow
cable works well with configurations
for most popular scraper brands.
High-capacity hydraulics from a 55 GPM (208 LPM) system
to the Twin Flow™ system of 90 GPM (340 LPM), with up to nine
remotes provide the correct flow and pressure for laser
guidance or manual operation. For cutting to grade precisely
and automatically, the electronic hydraulic system of an STX
Series tractor will interface with popular laser-control systems,
eliminating the need for expensive add-on valves.
An integrated leveling system is available
to interface with laser-guidance systems
on remotes 1 and 3. Monitors mount
within easy reach in the comfortable cab of an STX Series STEIGER tractor. No
need to buy extra valves — the hydraulics
respond automatically and accurately to
laser input or manual operation.
