As part of its Steiger Tiger Tour, Case IH recently demonstrated what it claims is “the most powerful tillage system in the world.” The 670-hp Steiger 600, the industry’s most powerful tractor, was paired with the 26-ft.-wide Ecolo-Tiger 870, the industry’s biggest combination disk ripper. In one pass, the system cut, ripped, and leveled a field of corn stalks at a work rate of 24 acres/hr. The tractor, powered by a new 12.9-liter Case IH engine by FTP, equipped with Tier 4A SCR technology, burned from 1.1 to 1.6 gal. of fuel/acre, giving it 10% higher fuel economy than previous models. Suggested list prices: The Steiger 600 starts at $420,000; the Ecolo-Tiger starts at $121,000. For more information, contact your Case IH dealer or visit
