Everything you want in a farm utility tractor, and nothing you don't. The new Case IH Farmall A Series tractors are built with proven basics -- like a dependable, fuel-efficient diesel engine and a straightforward mechanical transmission -- for simple operation and rugged reliability.
"If you're looking for a durable workhorse without electronic controls, take a look at the new Case IH Farmall A tractors," says Greg Lucey, Case IH marketing manager for Farmall tractors. "These new Farmall A tractors are simple machines built for the farm with all the pulling power and hydraulics you need for loading, blading, tilling and mowing chores."
Four Farmall A models will be available in 2010:
* Farmall 45A with 45 engine hp and 39 PTO hp.
* Farmall 55A with 55 engine hp and 47 PTO hp.
* Farmall 65A with 65 engine hp and 57 PTO hp.
* Farmall 75A with 75 engine hp and 66 PTO hp.
Lucey says the new Farmall A lineup is the first offering in the next generation of Case IH Farmalls, which will feature an updated and simplified global naming convention and decals.
"Farmall is the most recognizable tractor name in history," he explains. "With the launch of our new Farmall A tractors, we're returning to the 'letter' naming custom to honor the legacy of those famous Farmalls and clearly signify the progression of new models."
Dependable diesel engine
Designed to be tough and trouble-free, the 3-cylinder and 4-cylinder diesel engines in Farmall A tractors provide reliable power. They're also fuel-efficient, Tier III emissions compliant and approved for biodiesel blends -- for a lighter environmental footprint.
A fully independent 540-rpm PTO is engaged with the simple flip of a lever. "So you can also power a wide variety of attachments," Lucey adds. "The PTO stays engaged, powering the implements even when you clutch, shift and turn."
Simple, mechanical transmission
A basic shuttle shift transmission, with eight forward and two reverse gears, provides smooth shifting and keeps the Case IH Farmall A easy to operate. And four of the eight forward gears are in the heavily used 2- to 8-mph working range.
In addition, the Farmall 45A and 55A models are available with an optional 8x8 synchronized shift transmission, for on-the-fly shifting during roading or hauling. Farmall A tractors are engineered with a heavy-duty 2WD front axle or optional mechanical front drive axle, and a cast-iron rear axle with plenty of strength for loaders and rear implements.
"And a 3-point-hitch lift capacity of up to 2,954 pounds means your Farmall A can handle a round bale, rotary mower or tiller with ease," Lucey notes.
"No matter what's on your to-do list, whether it involves a 3-point implement or front end loader, your Case IH Farmall A has the hydraulic power and lift capacity to do the job," says Lucey.
Comfortable controls, easy maintenance
Conveniently located, easy-to-use controls on Case IH Farmall A tractors make chores seem less like work. "With the basic transmission, there's a speed and reverse lever on your right," Lucey explains. "On the 8x8 transmission option, the reverse lever is on the left-hand side of the steering wheel. Either way, they're simple controls that let you easily reverse direction."
A sloped hood provides great visibility in all directions, and a deluxe, contoured suspension seat adjusts to fit.
Routine maintenance is a snap: Engine oil can be checked and filled without lifting the hood.
"With a Farmall A, you'll get a large, comfortable operator platform that makes short work of a long day," Lucey says. "Unlike some tractors in this class where operators complain about cramped quarters, getting poked with levers or confused by the controls, the new A is a Case IH Farmall, with long-established agricultural bloodlines.
That means power, dependability, simple controls and easy operation."
