Attendees of the 2011 Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Ill. witnessed the debut of the redesigned Case IH Farmall B compact tractor lineup. The new Farmall B compact lineup offers four models and a full line of attachments for compact tractors.
“Our new Farmall B Series tractors replace the current Case IH line-up of compact tractors. The 30B, 35B, 40B and 50B have been redesigned to better fit the needs of our customers, whether they’re used on a dairy farm, livestock operation, hobby farm or for municipal work,” says Greg Lucey, Case IH marketing manager for Farmall tractors. “The Farmall B Series continues to provide dependable power, fuel efficiency, comfort, and time savings, which greatly influences the performance needed.”
The Farmall B is offered in both hydrostatic and gear transmission models with a standard forward and reverse shuttle on the gear models. The Farmall 30B gear and Farmall 35B gear offer 12X12 synchronized shuttle transmissions, while the Farmall 40B gear and 50B gear boast a 16X16 synchronized shuttle.
According to Case IH, the new Farmall B Series promotes comfort in the driver seat, and ergonomically-placed controls minimize reaching for levers and controls. As well, the new sloped hood improves visibility.
“The Farmall is known as America’s original red tractor and it has evolved over the years to meet the diverse needs of our customers,” says Lucey. “The ruggedness of the Case IH Farmall B is not only a benefit to farms, but also homeowners, landscapers, contractors, golf courses, and horse stables.”
