Overview & History
The Case IH Puma 165 was first introduced in 2007, as part of the smallest full-frame designed tractors for cultivating crops. It was built in Basildon, England and St. Valentin, Austria until 2010. When it was re-launched in 2014, this model was only produced in Basildon, England.
The Puma series filled a niche between the Maxxum series and the Magnum series. The 165, in particular, was marketed as a “multi-purpose tractor with the right amount of power for both row-crop and livestock applications”.
The first four model years of the Puma 165 preceded the Puma 170. It was equipped with a 6.7-litre, six-cylinder CNH diesel engine that can do 165 hp at 2200 rated RPM, 135 hp at PTO, and 107 hp at the drawbar.
This engine had a 104-millimetre bore, a 132-millimetre stroke, an electronic high-pressure common rail fuel system, and liquid cooling. It also had dual paper elements air cleaner with an aspirator. Its compression ratio was 16.5:1. The engine oil capacity was 15.1 litres. It fitted the tractor with a 12-volt starter. The early models had a fuel capacity of 439.1 litres, while the later models had a 405-litre capacity.
There were four transmission systems available: the first was a 17-speed Powershift, which was standard on 2WD models. Meanwhile, 4WD units had the 18-speed Powershift as standard equipment. The third was the 19-speed EconoGear transmission, which provided a transport gear that operates at a reduced RPM.
Beginning in 2008, continuously variable transmission (CVT) became available on the Puma 165 as an alternative to the standard Powershift to meet the operators’ demand for more power. This transmission lets the operator change gears and ranges seamlessly in conjunction with the speed and engine RPM. It was designed to operate with maximum fuel efficiency based on the mechanical interconnection of the gears and the additional hydraulic motor.
The 165 had a II/IIIN three-point hitch with a rear lift capacity of 5,800 kg (7,199 kg optional) at ends and 4,944 kg (6,168 kg optional) at 610 millimetres. A front hitch can also be optionally availed.
This machine had an independent rear PTO with an RPM rating of 540/1000, 1000, or 1000/1000E (with CVT). An optional front PTO with an RPM rating of 1000 was also available.
In 2010, the Puma 165 was discontinued. It was last sold for US$ 123,515.
But four years later, in 2014, this model was re-launched to replace the Puma 160. It now had an FPT-manufactured 6.7-litre, six-cylinder diesel engine, which had inline liquid cooling and an electronic common-rail fuel system. Its fuel capacity was lowered to 268.7 litres, but a 325.5-litre capacity was available as an option.
Meanwhile, its transmission options were down to two: the 18-speed Powershift and the CVT. The 165’s three-point hitch had a 3,583-kilogramme rear lift capacity. Its independent rear PTO had a rear RPM rating of 540/1000 or 1000/1000E.
