The reliable Case IH Farmall Series of tractors is gaining an addition with the introduction of the Farmall JXM, Series. It joins the Farmall B, JX, C and U Series tractors with two models on offer with engine power of 55 and 66kW (75 and 90hp).
Seamus McCarthy, mid-power and compact tractors product manager for Case IH Australia New Zealand, said the decision had been made to bring in the Farmall JXM to meet the needs of the hobby farmer and leisure market.
“The Farmall JXM has the power and performance Farmall owners have come to expect, but in a very cost-effective package,” Seamus said.
“It’s suited to all types of farming businesses, whether it be as the hard-working utility tractor in a bigger operation, or the go-to machine in a smaller farm business. We think it will also prove popular with local councils looking for a smaller tractor to add to their fleet that’s up to carrying out multiple tasks with maximum efficiency and a minimum of fuss.”
The 4WD JXM tractors offer a proven 2.9 and 3.9-lire turbocharged and intercooled 3-cylinder and 4-cylinder Tier 3 engines made by FPT.
The air filter system is engineered to deal with dusty conditions so air intake is as clean as possible, and a pre-cleaner system that increases the life of the air filter, reducing maintenance and operating costs.
There is a very wide choice of transmissions that starts off with a 12×12 mechanical synchroshuttle. Or a 20×20 mechanical synchroshuttle with creeper options or choose a 24×24 mechanical synchroshuttle with splitter.
There is a 60-litres/min open-centre hydraulic system.
The rear 3-point hitch is capable of lifting and handling implements of up to 2500kg.
The fuel tank capacity is 90 litres.
For the operator there is a comprehensive instrument panel in an ergonomic operator’s open ROPS environment.
Seamus said the Farmall JXM stood apart from the C, U and JX models because it offered value and productivity benefits across broad applications, but with a more basic operator interface.
“The Farmall B provides these same value and productivity advantages, however the JXM extends these benefits up to 66kW (90hp).”
Orders are now being taken for the Farmall JXM Series with deliveries to commence early 2019.
“We think there’ll be a lot of interest in this tractor, with its heavy-duty, compact frame, durable components and plenty of power. It’s great to operate and you know it will get the job done – first time, every time.”
