Case IH Maxxfarm range small but powerful

Written by

WITH A list of features normally reserved for larger tractors, the compact Maxxfarm tractor range from Case IH is ideally suited to small farms.

The Maxxfarm range includes six models powered by quiet and fuel-efficient four-cylinder engines ranging from the 23hp Maxxfarm 25 to the 57hp Maxxfarm 60.

Case IH marketing manager Kerry McCauley says the tractors come with features usually expected in a large tractor, like a tight 55 degree turning angle, high ground clearance of up to 390mm and excellent all-round visibility.

Maxxfarm has the versatility to handle a wide range of small farm tasks.

“The Quick-Attach linkage makes for easy hitching of implements and there are two rear remote valves for hydraulic implements, which is a real bonus on tractors in this size range,” McCauley says.

“The main hydraulic pump and steering pump are separate, so the machines can cope with heavy loads, and the high capacity hitch can handle up to 1.75 tonnes.”

The range is also operator friendly. Benefits include a convenient forward-reverse Shuttle Lever control, placed at the left hand, keeping the right hand free to operate other controls.

The Maxxfarm 35 is available with either a Synchro Shuttle or hydrostatic transmission for effortless speed changes from standstill to 27km/h.

The tractors are all available with a well-planned platform with foldable ROPS, while the Maxxfarm 60 is also available in a cab model which offers air conditioning, sunroof, dual doors and wide-opening rear windows.

All models are easy to service due to thoughtful engine layout and a one-touch bonnet and gas strut provides easy access to all key service points.

“This all-new range is stacked with performance-enhancing features that add up to a reliable and powerful farm machine,” McCauley says.

I have to say it didn't occur to me that this column would become an obituary so soon, but the timing somehow seems appropriate. The reason is simple: one of the last of the few examples in Australia of this month's feature is likely to be replaced soon. It has fallen victim to age, hard work, and the need to have ever more productive machines at the front line of contracting and farming.
