RACINE, WIS. — Case IH announced today two new utility powerhouse
tractors to meet professional livestock producers’ demand for rugged, yet
comfortable and easy-to-operate equipment. Heavy-duty Farmall® U tractors
deliver power and performance, with the Farmall 105U having 91 PTO HP and the
Farmall 115U having 98 PTO HP. Producers will appreciate the superior interior
environment for extra comfort in getting day-to-day jobs done.
“Whether moving creep feeders, hauling grain or cutting hay, producers will
appreciate the versatility of these heavy-duty machines,” says Greg Lucey, Case
IH Farmall Tractors Marketing Manager. “These tractors are ready to meet any
challenge on your ever-growing task list during longer work days. They also meet
emissions standards with Tier 4A engines.”
Running on updated clean-diesel technology, the new Farmall U models use Tier
4A-compliant Case IH FPT 4-cylinder 3.4-L 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.
Glow plugs warm the engine prior to a cold-weather start, eliminating the
need to use ether for more reliable starting in freezing temperatures.
Designed with operator productivity in mind, the models are propelled with
proven 12-speed forward, 12-speed reverse transmissions. The two Farmall U units
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.
COMFORTABLE, PRODUCTIVE ENVIRONMENT
Going a step above the rest to make the operator’s day more comfortable and
productive, the newly-designed Farmall cab includes user-friendly controls and
features. Reworked internal control ergonomics provide best-in-class
productivity and minimize operator fatigue:
- Easy-to-read instrument cluster tilts with the steering column
- Integrated position for loader joystick
- Remote valves in a more
Visibility to the loader and other attachments with the standard
high-visibility roof panel is unmatched among tractors in this class. The
standard instructor seat comfortably allows two adults to be in the cab
together. The easy-to-access driver’s seat can be upgraded to air suspension
with a 15-degree swivel to make repetitive tasks less monotonous.
The new climate control system revolutionizes in-cab comfort. The improved
HVAC system, which is now in the flat-deck floor instead of in the roof, has 10
adjustable vents providing superior control during those long days that are hot,
cold or dusty.
Versatile performance and value is not sacrificed in these new models. Owners
can choose between factory-installed value or premium type Case IH loaders.
No matter how heavy a load, the standard 17.2-gpm hydraulic pump (optional
22.2 gpm) and the load-sensing close-center rear remotes keep the tractor
working in all situations. Electronic draft control with a standard rear-hitch
fender switch plus a standard rear PTO fender switch will add convenience to any
Other versatile options include a heavy-duty rear-flange axle and 38-inch
“Powerful, tough, versatile and comfortable, these new Farmall U tractors are
your perfect companion for handling any chore – all day long,” says Lucey. “With
90 years of Farmall tradition under our belt, these tractors raise the bar of
excellence and will keep you coming back for more.”
