The tractors deliver more horsepower to accomplish demanding tasks
By Diego Flammini
Case IH has added three new models to its Farmall tractor offerings.
The Farmall Utility 95A (78 PTO horsepower), 105A (92 PTO hp) and 115A (100 PTO hp) provide more horsepower, durability and useful features to help producers across multiple sectors.
The tractors also help the manufacturer fill a gap in its tractor products, said Greg Lucey, Farmall marketing manager with Case IH.
“We had a big gap in our lineup in that horsepower range in the economy tractor class,” he told Farms.com. “In the 60 to 100 horsepower classification, we think 40 to 50 per cent of all tractors sold are economy, which means low priced but still have some features.”
The 115A may be the most attractive tractor of the three units, Lucey said.
“Nobody else in the industry has an economy tractor in the 8,000- to 9,000-pound (3,600- to 4,050-kilogram) category that has 100 PTO horsepower,” he said. “Everything else is capped around high 80s and low 90s. It’s a nice little exclusive we have here.”
Some of the key features of the tractors include their weights.
The new Farmalls are heavier than some other competitor units, Lucey said.
“The tractor is still heavy and durable,” he said. “We outweigh the competition by 1,000 to 1,500 lbs. (450 to 675 kg) depending on the configuration, meaning we can lift more, pull more and push more than some competitive units.”
Other standard features of the tractors include:
- four cab-mounted work lights for maximum visibility
- air suspension seats for comfortable operation
- engines that don’t require regeneration for greater productivity
