A FRONT axle suspension option for its Quantum speciality tractor range is now available from Case IH.

Aimed at bringing to this sector the same levels of on-road and in-field comfort offered by larger models in the Case IH range, the new suspended option is based on that experience.

It uses a swing arm design connected by a saddle-type pivot and the layout of the suspension system means the structure is particularly robust, ensuring no friction between the saddle bar and the front axle.

The pivot center is located in a higher position than on alternative systems, giving higher levels of rolling comfort, said Case IH.

Suspension settings can be adjusted from the cab and this also allows any front implement to be attached and adjusted more easily. The system has four ride modes – locked, soft, medium and hard.

Additional features include automatic ride height control, which ensures the full travel of the suspension is made available regardless of the load on the front axle.

An anti-dive/squat feature gives stability even when heavy implements are attached and axle roll control balances the oil flow between the two cushioning cylinders for greater stability and comfort in hilly terrain.

The option can be ordered on Quantum V, N and F models specified with a cab.
