The new Case IH Farmall U delivers a performance greater than the sum of its parts, while offering top notch durability and ultimate operator comfort, according to tractor product manager Peter Elias.

He said whether working with mounted machinery, trailed equipment, with a loader or on transport duties, the versatile Farmall U tractors more than lived up to the name.

The Farmall U has a semi-powershift transmission and a deluxe cab with an optional suspended cab, providing greater versatility, ease of use and comfort.

Mr Elias said this made it a highly adaptable tractor, which is available in two models, the Farmall 105U with 92 PTO horsepower or the Farmall 115U with 99 PTO horsepower.

"The semi-powershift transmission installed in the Farmall U has been taken from the well-known Maxxum Series tractor," he said.

"It has 16 forward and 16 reverse gears, four powershift speeds and four ranges. Speed is up to 40km/h."

The Farmall U cab has repositioned ergonomic controls and a smoother ride from the cab suspension, all designed to lessen operator fatigue and increase productivity.

"Operator ease and convenience has driven much of the Farmall U design," Mr Elias said

The roof panel gives excellent visibility for loader work and a standard instructor seat allows two adults to be in the cab together.

An updated air-conditioning system gives the operator superior comfort and control, while a factory-installed Bluetooth radio and mechanical joystick integrated into the right-hand console come as standard.

The Farmall U tractors use four-cylinder 3.4-litre turbocharged and intercooled engines. Precise electronic fuel metering and electronic high-pressure fuel injection improves efficiency, extends engine life and improves cold-engine starting. Most importantly, it provides efficient power.

"This unique fuel-injection system provides greater fuel savings, even with higher horsepower levels," Mr Elias said.

"The Case IH Farmall U Series tractors are designed and built to withstand the mechanical stresses of loader work and three-point hitch applications. The Farmall U line-up is a premium offering for customers looking for a utility tractor that provides the ultimate Farmall experience."
