Case IH redesign gets Gurteen call
Case IH brought its replacement for the long-running JXU series of tractors to the FTMTA Grass and Muck Event.
The Farmall U Efficient Power series features three models in its range, the Farmall 95U, 105U and 115U, with horsepower ranging from 95hp to 115hp.
Under the bonnet is a new 3.4-litre electronic injection common rail engine, which incorporates a wastegate turbocharger with intercooler.
In a departure from the firm's AdBlue route of engine exhaust emission control, Exhaust Gas Recirculation is used to bring it into line with emission regulations.
According to CaseIH, these mid-sized tractors have been completely redeveloped and redesigned to meet the needs of livestock and mixed farming customers. In addition to the new engine, there is a new cab which is very different to the JXU cab that has been around since the L-Series days.
Inside the cab, the new design offers a number of ergonomic improvements, with the most regularly used controls sited in positions closest to the driver.
Meanwhile, the option of an integrated joystick ensures ergonomic and efficient control of a front loader or other front-mounted machinery.
Under the bonnet, the common rail engine can provide torque increases of up to 51pc, with considerably more power available at lower engine speeds. Constant power is available between 1,900 and 2,300 engine rpm. The maintenance interval is stretched by 100 hours up to 600 hours.
