Entry-level Optum Case IH’s line of Optum tractors, based on a high power, low weight design that can be ballasted where required, is to be expanded with the addition of a third model at the base of the range. The new Optum 250 CVX tractor, with a rated power output of 250hp and a maximum figure of 273hp, joins the existing Optum 270 CVX and Optum 300 CVX models also built in St Valentin, Austria, and is available with a number of optional features designed to create a competitive package in terms of features and performance, yet serve as an attractive entry-level model for the Optum range.

The company, which is based in Tamworth, has launched a ‘no frills’ service collecting all types of farm plastic waste including spray cans, silage wrap, fertiliser and seed bags, as well as net wrap, string and cardboard.

Managing director Tony Bell said, “We are pleased to launch the company as we believe that there is a strong need for this kind of service in the marketplace.
