Tractors for chores and more

09/30/2011 @ 1:29pm

Having equipment around the farm that works just as hard as you do is key to getting all the chores done. The latest tractor introductions from Massey Ferguson and Case IH are ready to do their part.

Massey Ferguson 5450

Try as you might to monitor your surroundings, blind spots inevitably hamper your visibility when maneuvering an implement from the seat of the tractor.

Redesigning the typical square-shape tractor hood is the key to eliminating blind spots. With its Hi-Visibility Hood design, the Massey Ferguson 5450 midrange tractor allows you to see the front of the loader bucket for better control and more accurate results.

“The all-new Massey Ferguson 5450 is designed so the operator can see the tip of the loader bucket,” says Rene Bolvin, product marketing manager, utility, specialty, and midrange tractors.

Exclusive hood slopes significantly at the nose, allowing you to see the tip of the loader bucket from the tractor seat inside the cab. Better visibility translates into precise implement control.

Also new is the left-hand power control lever mounted to the steering column. It allows for simple directional changes and leaves your right hand free to operate other controls. The 5450 is powered by a Tier III emissions-compliant Perkins 1104D 44TA turbo-charged engine, which delivers a combination of horsepower, fuel economy, and torque.

Choose a two- or four-wheel drive machine with prices starting at $71,817 (two-wheel drive including a MF941 loader with 73-inch bucket).

Case IH Farmall C

Since 1923, the name Farmall has meant hardworking. More than 75 years later, Case IH promises to continue that heritage with the latest Farmall C Series.

“The new Farmall C Series builds on a tradition while offering best-in-class operator comfort and ergonomics, as well as features designed to further enhance productivity,” says Greg Lucey, Case IH marketing manager for Farmall tractors.

These utility tractors are built to reliably and cost-effectively deliver power and performance but also to meet the demand for greater operator comfort, especially during longer days.

This Series is powered by the FPT Case IH four-cylinder, 3.2-liter engine. For all models, the engine is turbocharged, and the 85C and 95C engines are also intercooled.

All models feature eight-speed forward, eight-speed reverse mechanical shuttle transmissions as standard equipment. You can upgrade to a 12×12 or hydraulic shuttle transmission.

Taking a look inside the cab, the ergonomic design of the controls allows for easy operation. The optional high-visibility roof window panel, which can be opened, improves visibility and safety during loader operations.

You can choose from three models: Farmall 75C (65 PTO hp.), Farmall 85C (75 PTO hp.), and Farmall 95C (85 PTO hp.). The base price starts at $34,273 (75C) to $39,214 (95C).
