Prime-Lift loader a safe option


With the agricultural industry striving to meet the 2012 national safety standards set by Safe Work Australia, Case IH is throwing farmers a lifeline by offering a free Prime-Lift loader with every JX or JXU tractor purchased before October 31.

Engineered specifically for use with Case IH tractors, the Prime-Lift loader dramatically enhances user safety, taking the guesswork out of loader operation.

"The agricultural industry is one of four priority industries Safe Work Australia is focusing on under its 2012 strategy to reduce workplace injuries," Case IH marketing manager Kerry McCauley said.

"Of the four priority industries, agriculture has seen an 11 per cent decrease in incident rates since the strategy commenced in 2002.

"This is certainly something to be proud of, but we know the agricultural industry can build on this even further.

"As one of the leading equipment manufacturers, farm safety is a key focus for Case IH and the Prime-Lift loader is testament to this with its range of optimal safety features."

The Prime-Lift's safety features include a loader self-levelling system which enhances visibility.

Its precise mechanical level lift function eliminates negative angle creation throughout the lift cycle which reduces the chance of the tractor rolling over.

Farmers who take advantage of the deal are eligible to take delivery of the adaptable and dependable JX or JXU with a low 5.75 per cent interest rate and no repayments for the first 12 months.

Built with loader work in mind, the JXU tractor is available in four models, ranging from 86 to 113 horsepower, and a choice of 12x12 or 24x24 Power Shuttle transmission.

The down-to-earth JX tractor is also available in four models ranging from 59 to 89hp.

Performance and value for money are guaranteed with the JX's 20x12 Synchro Shuttle transmission.

For those looking for a heavy-duty small tractor, the JX Straddle comes in three models, ranging from 56 to 76hp.

Farmers can choose the Prime-Lift loader or a free Scout with their tractor. The Scout utility vehicle is a safe, convenient and rugged farm vehicle that can go places utes can't get to and provides more room, comfort and safety features than an ATV.

To secure one of these special deals before October 31, farmers are urged to contact their local Case IH dealer.
