Case IH Tractors Complete Epic Journey to the Antarctic

Apr 18, 2023 4:00 PM ET

Last year, CNH Industrial reported that three of its Case IH brand tractors were close to completing an epic journey to a new, unique home: Antarctica. These special Steiger Quadtrac 500s have travelled across the Globe, making a number of stops to receive the modifications they need to perform in such a challenging environment.

And now, they have arrived at their final destination.

There, they are being used to support the Australian Antarctic Division’s (AAD) aviation operations.

The AAD is part of the Australian Government’s Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water. It delivers operational, medical, science, policy and support functions.

And according to Jason Wood, High Horsepower Product Manager, Case IH, the machines have exceeded the expectations of the AAD operators.

Watch the video to hear what else Jason had to say – and chart the full journey of these extraordinary tractors.
