The Case IH Farmall compact tractor range has returned to the Australian market with two new series, Farmall B and Farmall JX.

According to a report by the Weekly Times, the Farmall range had been introduced in the country several times (when it came out in the 1920s and re-launched briefly five years ago) but had since been discontinued until now.

This time around, the new tractors will feature increased engine capacity, ranging from 23-110 horsepower.

Case IH Tractors Product Manager John Dreves says the Farmall is the ideal small tractor suited to small to mid-sized farming operations.

"The Farmall name is a customer favourite, well-known around the world for its versatility and performance," he says.

"We've evolved the Farmall over the years to meet the varying needs of Australian producers and in 2013 we're excited to introduce our new range offering increased engine capacity across many operating environments."

The Farmall B series tractors will replace the Maxxfarm range of compact tractors and will include six models in the line-up- The 20B, 25B, 35B, 40B, 50B and 60B.

The series features three or four cylinder, fuel efficient engines and mechanical self-levelling loaders. They can also be fitted with a wide range of attachments for a variety of uses.

"The Farmall B moves effortlessly between operating sprayers and high powered tillers in horticulture operations, manoeuvring in orchards and plantations and handling a wide range of small farm tasks," Dreves says.

Also being launched this year is the Farmall JX series which is the higher powered range of the Farmall line-up, featuring seven models - The 70JX, 75JX, 80JX, 90JX 100JX and 110JX.

"The Farmall JX is the perfect combination of economy and productivity delivering a reliable and effective performance across a variety of tasks," Dreves says.

"The hydraulic power shuttle, standard on the top four models, is perfect for loader work in livestock applications, offering smooth direction changes and increased productivity."

He adds the new tractors have been designed with versatility in mind.

"We understand that on any given day, producers are performing a variety of tasks and must be able to turn their hand to any situation - now we offer a range of tractors that do the same," he says.

"We're excited to see the Farmall back on Australian soil so talk to your local Case IH dealer about our new range of Farmall B and JX tractors."
