drawbar hp of 7140

Recommended Posts

traded for a new Case IH 527 B ecolo tiger disk ripper and the dealer said the 7140 will pull it but it is recommended to take 140 to 180 hp is all it says. I do not have a brochure and just wondering if anyone knew the hp specs of the 7140. Tractor data. com does not

Reason for asking I plan to purchase a crumbler that will go behind the machine and just kind of wondering.

BTW my 7140 only pulls 197 on dyno and has not been turned up and I do not plan to

195 PTO . Not sure on the drawbar. But I don't think it would be less than 170 or so.

Drawbar hp on a stock 7140 is 170. We have a 527b and a 7130 that will run with any 7140. It has all kinds of power but the subsoiler will stop it in its tracks. Tires just spin if u run it down where it belongs. I have been looking for a small 4wd to pull it instead. Nice tool just need a lot of traction. We have heavy clay around here.

Yes it is. Our 7120 seems like a pooch to. I guess maybe compared to the 7130 it is.

I think the reason I feel the 7140 is kind of doggy is it seemed like the 7110 aka "baby" seemed like it would pull anything the 40 would but just a little easier. Took it to case ih last spring and it pulled 230 easy. A quick call to the diesel shop man and he came out there and turned it back to 170 for us and. He said that it was turned up all the way it would go. That tractor came out of the Texas cotton fields and I got it in 2006 and have put nearly 5000 hours on it but never really pulled it hard. The funny thing is that tractor hardly smoked a bit when it was pulling 230 on the dyno. Had 9000 hours when I got it and now has 4700 on the 2nd time around. Good engine uses no oil. Those have got to be tough tractors but the 40 weighs more has wheel weights but no water in the tires.

Last year after I bought my 7140 2wd I went out and pulled the 38' Case IH field cultivator that I pull with the ST270 Steiger up in the yard to work on it before planting started. When I finished working on it I went out and put it in the ground just to see what the 7140 had. On level ground the 7140 pulled the digger just as easy as the Steiger. Going up hill I never ran out of power but did run out of traction. This 7140 has some smoke under the hood.

Make sure your motor is running at 2450 rpm's , no load with the engine warm . Then the line going over to the waste gate can be plugged on the injection pump side of the tractor , that tractor should be running 220 to 240 hp with no trouble . Let me know if you need some help with the setup of the tractor to pull that new tool . Air psi in the tires, drawbar adjustment , front weights, leveling the machine have as much to do with pulling it good other than cranking up the power .

When I was at Case IH we set every unit that went out so we had happy customers !!

7140s didn't have a wastegate, did they?

I think Veg is right. 7200 and newer had the gate and anoid thing.

Hagen, If it ran fine and has went this long why did you turn it down? Our 8930 has 10000 and been at 220-240 for 5500 of it. Started at 182. Was to slow chopping with a processor and 3 row....like 2 mph! In my opinion set at 230 is prob OK for a 7110, esp if it had never had issues. BUT it is your unit. Maybe give it a round or 2 and if it can't have the 7140 set to 230. I am surprised the 7110 ran cool. No Inner cooler and that much power generally equal heat. How wide is a Ecotill thing? We bum the FIL's 7 shank CIH 14 Ripper and it's all she's got in the heavy ground we rip. To deep she'll spin. He has a 8400 with more wt and the long wheel base that really does fine on it.

7150 was the first with the wastegate. Then 7200 series maybe all? Fairly certain all 89xx had

When I bought my 7120 in late 1992, it put out 177 PTO HP. A friend of mine also bought one about a month after mine. His only put out 154 PTO HP and it felt doggy. That was the nature of the beast. He traded his off on an 8920 before the warranty was out.

I bought a new 7120 in '87. Dealer put it on a dyno before they delivered it, tractor turned 187hp. I traded it for a new '91 7120. That tractor was a dog. Dealer took it back in & ran it on the sam dyno, tested 157 hp. Service manager said that was where they were suppose to be & wouldn't do anything about it. I complained enought that the salesman called the s.m. at one of their sister stores. That sm told them to send the pump in & have it set @ "high factory specs". When they put the pump back on the tractor it turned 185hp. Later bought a '95 7220 & wahtever the 7120s pulled it would pull a gear faster. I never had it on a dyno but always wondered what it was turning. At same time I had a '96 7240 mfd. Dyno broke at 326 hp & tractor hadn't started to pull down yet. The 7220 wasn't much less than the 40 when it came to pulling equipment, main diff was the 40 was mfd & the 20 was 2wd.
