"The 2025R machine offers the versa- tility operators need to tackle a variety of jobs," says Schebler. "TwinTouch foot controls reduce fatigue by allow ing the operator to select speed and direction of travel with the touch of a toe. Addition- ally, optional Auto-Throttle allows the operator to increase or decrease engine speed by simply pressing on either of the TwinTouch pedals. Equal forward and reverse ground speed, combined with the TwinTouch controls, allows for faster direction changes." To add even more value to the 2025R, John Deere outfitted the tractor with a re- designed operator station to increase com- fort and visibility, including color-coded controls, thicker full-suspension seat and standard cruise control. Case IH In 2004, Case IH relaunched the iconic Farmall brand, offering operators a com- pact, do-it-all tractor they could depend on. Today's compact Farmall tractors are available in two Series: the Farmall com- pact A Series and Farmall compact C series — for a total of six models. Case IH says that both of the series were recently updated to increase their comfort and produc- tivity. "The entry-level Farmall compact A Series is a fit for any compact tractor chore, without breaking the bank," says Denny Stroo, Case IH Farmall tractor marketing manager. "The deluxe Farmall compact C Series is avail- able in gear and hydrostatic transmissions, as well as cab or non-cab options for ultimate comfort." In 2018, Case IH released three new tractors in its util- ity A Series — the 55A, 65A and 75A. According to the company, these new models help fill out the Case IH entry-level Farmall lineup with cab and non-cab options, delivering the strength and productivity needed for any job in any weather. "Case IH is building on the Farmall legacy with a line- up that meets demands for chores around the farm," says Stroo. "Farmall utility tractors are dependable work- horses suitable for a multitude of uses, proven by the fact that more than 2 million Farmall tractors have been sold around the world." A mechanical contoured seat, tilt steering wheel and an optional air ride feature just add to the enhanced ride. The new Farmall utility A tractors also feature new wrap- around lighting and movable dynamic fenders, which improve the machine's turning radius, as well as tele- scopic stabilizers and optional flex-end lower links — al- lowing operators to easily switch out attachments. Case IH and similar manufacturers all over the indus- try continue to release new and interesting products, and we'll continue to keep you updated. Pam Kleineke is managing editor of Compact Equipment. 43 Kubota's newest line of tractors includes the BX2680.
