The 81st edition of the London Farm Show is only two days away! The largest indoor Farm Show in Eastern Canada, which showcases the latest in industry trends and agricultural technology, will continue to uphold its slogan ‘Come Grow With Us’ with the unveiling of the revolutionary new Case IH tractor on Wednesday, March 6th at 11:00 a.m.

The new model-year 2020 AFS Connect Magnum series is a high-powered tractor that is purpose-built for digital interactivity, and wirelessly sends and receives farm, fleet, and agronomic data safely. The AFS Connect Magnum offers new levels of connectivity and comfort,” Jay Barth, marketing manager, stated. Added connectivity takes form with Remote display viewing for off-site viewing of the cab, a Remote service tool for maintenance requests, and Firmware over the air (FOTA) for wireless updates. Three new system components, AFS Pro 1200 LCD display, New AFS Vision Pro operating system, AFS Vector Pro receiver, also add to the overall enhanced experience. The redesigned cab environment and updated attractive exterior allow the new Magnum to stand out from the crowd while the additional exterior features add visibility.
