The Case IH Farmall is renowned for its performance and durability, but just when you thought the Farmall range couldn't get any better, the latest addition to the family has upped the ante once again.
The Farmall M ActiveDrive 4 has just been launched into the Australian and New Zealand market, combining that famous power-packed performance with improved comfort and a semi-powershift transmission at a value-for-money price, and it will make its Australian debut at the FarmFest field days at Toowoomba this week.
"Case IH's utility tractor range is strengthened by the introduction of the Farmall M, combining many of the best Farmall features such as the Farmall U's SPS transmission, hydraulics and Electronic Draft Control (EDC) and Farmall JX's superior engine and front axle design," said Case IH ANZ Product Manager for Mid Horsepower & Compact Tractors, Seamus McCarthy.
Central to the new Farmall M is the ActiveDrive 4 transmission, designed to combine power with efficiency. ActiveDrive 4 is a smooth-shifting semi-automatic transmission, dispensing with a clutch between in-range speeds, and replacing it with buttons for seamless gear shifting. With a total of 32 forward and 32 reverse gear options, the ActiveDrive 4 transmission covers a wide range of speeds, from 0.28 km/h to 40 km/h.
A powerful S8000 engine, standard in all models, makes easy work of even the heaviest load. With Tier 3 emission level, 4 cylinders, 3908 cm3 cylinder volume, Turbo-Intercooler and high torque values, the Farmall M ActiveDrive4 is designed to combine power with efficiency.

"The Farmall M is a perfect refection of this and represents customer expectations that our increasingly sophisticated technology isn't reserved only for our larger tractors, but that it's also incorporated at the lower end of our tractor line-up" - Seamus McCarthy, Case IH ANZ
