During this week, two major ag events are taking place — World Ag Expo in Tulare, California and the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky. Farmers and ranchers can expect to see a lot of new equipment and new technology being released throughout the week. Case IH announced new models in three exciting lineups to kick off the week.
Case IH Adds New Models to Lineup of Farmall Utility A Series Tractors
Building on nearly 100 years of power and legacy and with millions of Farmall series tractors sold, Case IH is adding three new models to its Farmall family of tractors: Farmall utility 95A, 105A, and 115A.
The new models feature an efficient yet powerful 4-cylinder engine that provides high torque for maximum performance — ideal for handling a variety of implements, such as a loader, round baler, auger, disc mower conditioner, disc rotary cutter, and field mower. Designed to match the capacity of the Case IH L575 loader, these tractors are equipped with simple, powerful hydraulic PTO for increased productivity and efficiency. Boasting 120 engine hp,1 the new Farmall 115A delivers 100 PTO horsepower — the highest available in the Farmall utility A lineup chassis class.
Greg Lucey, Case IH Farmall tractors marketing manager said, “The fact that this lineup doesn’t require engine regeneration is a game changer. Producers often don’t anticipate the high costs associated with maintaining and cleaning diesel particulate filters in competitive models. Our advanced emissions system eliminates that worry completely.”
Case IH Adds New Vestrum Series Tractor to Livestock Lineup
Case IH is adding a premium tractor in a compact design to its livestock portfolio with the new Vestrum series tractor. Delivering the comfort and power of a high-horsepower Case IH tractor, the Vestrum series combines maneuverability with premium cab comfort in a compact design, making it the go-to choice for any job despite conditions or space constraints.
Designed to handle even the heaviest tasks, the Vestrum tractor has a powerful 4-cylinder engine with a Wastegate turbocharger. The lineup consists of two models — Vestrum 100 and Vestrum 130 — with 28.5-gallon-per-minute maximum hydraulic pump flowrate. With a 100 or 130 hp rating and a lift capacity of 6,700 pounds, the Vestrum tractor has enough power for a variety of applications, such as planting and baling.
The size, power, and maneuverability enable the Vestrum tractor to take on a variety of applications from dairy and beef operations to hay, forage and loader work, as well as winter snow removal and specialty crops.
Case IH Introduces Large Square Baler Accumulator Lineup
To provide more options for livestock producers, Case IH is adding a lineup of large square baler accumulators to its hay and forage equipment portfolio. Designed for simplicity and handling of a variety of bale sizes and conditions, the new Case IH large square baler accumulator is fully automatic, providing peace of mind so operators can concentrate on the baling process and not bales on deck. The Case IH accumulator is available in horizontal and vertical models, creating neatly placed groups of bales ready for pickup.
The Case IH large square baler accumulator reduces loading time by up to 50% and collects up to five bales, depending on the model, and automatically groups bales in the desired dump pattern — stacked or horizontal. It is available in four models to meet various bale sizes and horizontal or vertical stacking requirements. For horizontal stacking, a standard three-bale accumulator is available in two models: the AC3108 for 3×3 bales and the AC4108 for 4×3 bales. For larger operations, there is now a five-bale accumulator option: the AC5150. For vertical stacking needs, the VS1208 stacks three 4-foot-wide bales neatly for easy loading.
The Vestrum series tractor is on display at both winter farm shows.
