New Heavy-Duty Farmall U Tractors
Case IH has introduced two new utility powerhouse tractors designed to meet livestock producers’ demand for rugged, yet comfortable and easy-to-operate equipment. The new models include the Farmall 105U with 91 PTO hp. and the Farmall 115U with 98 PTO hp.
“Whether moving creep feeders, hauling grain, or cutting hay, producers will appreciate the versatility of these heavy-duty machines,” says Greg Lucey with Case IH.
Running on updated clean-diesel technology, the new Farmall U models use Tier 4A-compliant Case IH FPT 4-cylinder 3.4-liter turbocharged and intercooled engines. For a more efficient combustion process, fuel is delivered with electronic high-pressure common-rail fuel injection. This system provides efficiency, extended engine life, and improved cold-engine starting, but most importantly, “This unique fuel injection system provides greater fuel savings, all while maintaining high horsepower levels,” says Lucey.
The models are propelled with 12-speed forward, 12-speed reverse transmissions and incorporate an electro-hydraulic power shuttle wet-clutch transmission. If applications demand it, the transmission can be upgraded to 20x20 with creeper or 24x24 with hi-lo.
The newly designed Farmall cab incorporates user-friendly controls and features, including an easy-to-read instrument cluster that tilts with the steering column, an integrated position for the loader joystick, and a more accessible position for remote valves.
Standard models come with a 17.2-gallon per minute (GPM) hydraulic pump and farmers have the option of a 22.2-GPM pump. Additional features include a load-sensing close-center rear remote, electronic draft control with a standard rear-hitch fender switch, and a standard rear PTO fender switch. The price range for the new tractors is $53,000 to $70,000.
