The success of the 7100 series Magnum tractors in the Southwest United States brought a demand for a tractor with more engine horsepower and hydraulic lift capacity. Case IH developed the 7150 Magnum tractor to meet this need.
Starting in late 1990 and early 1991, a very limited number of these units were sold through the Memphis sales office to select dealers in southern states. These were to be kept in the area for close factory followup. After being cleared for production, the 7150 was released for sale to all Case IH dealers nationwide with the high-horsepower tractor contract starting in November 1991. Mass production and availability began in March 1992.
The Magnum 7150 was a boosted-horsepower model released in late 1990 and early 1991. The 215 horsepower from the 8.3-liter CDC engine made it the first Magnum with more than 200 horsepower—not to mention the most powerful mechanical front-drive tractor on the market. CNH Global
So this small diecast model doesn’t really do justice to the giant Magnum tractor it represents. Yet, it is much easier to have on display in your home than out in the machinery barn. If you know your dad or grandfather was very proud of his 7150 Case IH tractor back in the 1990s, you might just find this model to be a perfect gift for him! (hint-hint!)
