Another new kid on the block….well, not that new but it has been hard to get one in stock long enough to sell locally since its release earlier in the year.
Meet the new CASE IH FARMALL M ACTIVEDRIVE 4 series...
Recent delivery of the new FARMALL 100M to local cane farmer, Steve Russell, whose initial response, once offloaded from the truck, was to comment on how impressive the new shape looked. This tractor will be put to work on his cane property as an all-rounder, to be used for slashing, rotary hoeing and inter-row work in his cane.

The power of a larger tractor in a smaller machine
The new styling and design of this compact tractor not only makes for one good looking machine, but also contains the power you would normally get in a larger tractor. It is like the ActiveDrive 4 classic Maxxum but now in a smaller compact machine. Ideal for applications where power is really needed, but not necessarily the larger size, like roadside contractors, turf farms and hay contractors.
This is the first in the small Case IH models to include the ActiveDrive 4 transmission which delivers higher levels of power and torque while operating efficiently. ActiveDrive 4 is a smooth-shifting semi-automatic transmission. It dispenses with a clutch between in-range speeds, opting instead for easy, button-operated seamless shifting. With a total of 32 forward and 32 reverse gear options, the ActiveDrive 4 transmission covers a wide range of speeds, from 0.28 km/h to 40 km/h.
The Farmall M also comes with:
- Electro-hydraulic components to work with a variety of attachments
- Hydraulic lift capacity of 5400kg and fender-mounted hydraulic controls
- EDC (Electronic Draft Control)
- 3 way shuttle sensitivity
- 3 speed PTO with auto function
- Spacious cab with ergonomic control levers, air-suspension seat and sunroof
- Next generation design and styling has meant enhanced visibility and better access for maintenance.
In addition to all these features, another stand out is the technology now incorporated in these smaller tractors which is no longer just reserved for the larger more sophisticated high end tractors.
