Farmall 55A – the farmyard specialist

Farmall 55A is a new 55hp single specification tractor open station tractor. Standard specification is an 8x8 synchro transmission with left hand mechanical shuttle enabling quick and easy direction changes in shuttle type operations. Standard equipment also includes one rear double-acting remote valve and 540 rpm pto.

Whilst these tractors are designed primarily for working in and around yards and livestock buildings, the rugged and robust construction also makes the tractor very capable in a support role within many other environments. Available in either 2wd or 4wd, these tractors are equipped with an easy access spacious, comfortable operator’s platform.

A folding roll over protection is also part of the standard equipment. When folded this allows the tractor to access areas with a door height of 2m.

Farmall A, which supersedes JX range, brings new features, an increase in power, two additional higher powered models and a new ergonomically designed cab. These six new models which span the 65 – 115hp range are all available in 4wd.

Standard specification on Farmall 65A, 75A, 85A, 95A is a 12 x 12 mechanical shuttle, while the Farmall 105A and 115A benefit from a 12 x 12 powershuttle. In addition, the powershuttle is available as an option on Farmall 85A and 95A.

Internally the ergonomics of the cab have been given a complete overhaul with remote valve levers, hand throttle and rear 3-point hitch control relocated to improve the simplicity of operation. The heating and ventilation unit is now relocated to the rear of the cab to improve the feeling of spaciousness and enable a high visibility panel to be incorporated into the roof. This optional high visibility panel will be especially valuable for front loader operations enabling drivers to keep the loader in view when stacking bales or operating in low roof buildings.

Farmall 65A and 75A are ideally suited to perform the support role on large livestock units whether operating yard scrapers or powering straw choppers. The Farmall 85A and 95A combine power with economy and make ideal loader tractors, while the extra power available from the Farmall 105A and 115A makes these tractors ideally suited for high pto power tasks like operating diet feeder wagons.

Outside of the farmyard these tractors will play an important role in transport, slurry / manure spreading, fertiliser application, silage making and a variety of other field operations. Maximum rear lift capacity is an impressive 3,565kg and up to three rear remote valves can be specified.
