Introducing the new Case IH Farmall A at LAMMA 2015

Amongst a host of new products being exhibited by Case IH at LAMMA 2015 will be the company’s new Farmall A tractor, production of which is scheduled to start in January 2015.

Designed to perform a key role in a wide range of farming businesses, the Farmall A models combine powerful, cost-effective performance in a simple, reliable, convenient-to-use and user-friendly package. The four models are the 86hp Farmall 85A, 99hp Farmall 95A, 107hp Farmall 105A and 114hp Farmall 115A.

Blending power and economy with performance and reliability, they deliver unbeatable value for money. Compared with the mechanically-governed engines used in the outgoing Farmall A range, the new power units deliver significantly improved performance. Model for model, power is up to 4hp higher, maximum torque is increased by an average of 4.4%, rated speed falls to 2300rpm, rated fuel consumption is reduced by up to 3.9% and optimum fuel consumption is as much as 8% lower (Farmall 115 A). The new models also feature an exhaust on the A pillar, plus a 10% larger, 121-litre fuel tank.

All models are powered by four-cylinder, 3.4-litre turbocharged and intercooled Stage IIIB compliant FPT engines which incorporate electronic injection and Bosch high pressure common rail fuel injection for optimum fuel efficiency. Delivering constant power output from 1900rpm to 2300rpm, they are quick to accelerate, deliver high torque outputs - up to 457Nm at just 1500rpm - for optimum fuel efficiency and provide up to 35.3% of torque back-up.

To maximise the benefit of the new engines’ power characterists and improve fuel economy the PTO gearing has also been revised. An engine speed of just 1535rpm is all that is now required to achieve the 540E PTO speed, compared with up to 1715rpm on previous 85A and 95A tractors, while 1000 PTO operation is achieved at 2261 engine rpm, down from 2381rpm. All engines feature a low idle speed of just 700rpm to minimise fuel consumption, while the clean combustion achieved in the Farmalls’ FPT engines allows for a class-leading 600-hour oil change interval.

Other mechanical changes include a twin-pump hydraulic configuration with a total flow of 75l/min, with the option of a 100l/min unit. A new front axle carrier incorporates mounting pads that allow for the attachement of a front loader or front linkage, together with a recess to accommodate a front PTO shaft. This improves the versatility and performance of the new Farmall A tractors, which have a robust rear linkage capable of lifting up to 3565kg.

Farmall 85A and 95A tractors incorporate a 12 forward/12 reverse mechanical shuttle transmission, while Farmall 105A and 115A tractors have hydraulic powershuttle as standard and include electro-hydraulic engagement of four-wheel-drive.

The performance of the Farmall 85A and 95A can be enhanced by specifying the optional Productivity Pack which adds a 540E PTO speed, high flow hydraulic pump and external linkage raise/lower lever. The 40k Productivity Pack additionally increases the maximum travel speed to 40kph, adds a second steering ram to the front axle and on 85A and 95A models also adds electro-hydraulic engagement of four-wheel-drive to provide four-wheel braking. Farmall 85A and four-wheel-drive versions of the 95A are also available with a 40k Powershuttle Pack, which includes all of the above features together with a hydraulic Powershuttle.

The two-wheel-drive version of the Farmall 95A has an even tighter turning radius than the 5.8m minimum achieved by the smallest four-wheel-drive model, the Farmall 85A. Equipped with a 12 forward/12 reverse ratio transmission, the Farmall 95A can also be specified with a hydraulic powershuttle or creep speed transmission.

All models can be equipped with two mechanical mid-mount remote valves which are operated by a joystick on the right-hand console. With the addition of a Case IH LRZ loader they are equipped for every loading and handling task around the farm, making them a true all-rounder.

Farmall models provide a safe, clean and convenient working environment for the operator. Featuring excellent visibility, the cab is 2dB(A) quieter than its predecessor and features improved comfort and ergonomics, including a revised dashboard layout, new instrument cluster with a digital screeen, redesigned control console and new rear hitch control. An optional Vision Pack provides a High Visibility front viewing panel, two additional rear worklights, a rear wiper and telescopic rear view mirrors.
