Performance. Value. Versatility.
The Farmall® Utility A series tractors will feature three new models — 55A, 65A and 75A ― all with a comfortable cab option. The Farmall Utility A series tractors are efficient all-around chore tractors perfect for any farm in any weather.


Power and Performance
A turbocharged, electronically controlled engine features 3 cylinders and a tunnel block design that ensures ruggedness and easy maintenance without sacrificing power, efficiency or performance. Six available models range from 53 to 75 hp (46 to 62 PTO hp)

Common Rail Direct Injection
An electronic high-pressure common rail fuel system precisely meters fuel as power demands, delivering both performance and fuel efficiency. This fuel system also provides improved throttle response, fast recovery to load and quieter engine operation with less vibration.

Tier 4 B/Final Compliant
Engines use an internal Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system to meet Tier 4 B/Final requirements.


Easy to Shift, Easy to Operate
Farmall Utility A tractors feature a simple, straightforward 8x8 mechanical transmission that’s easy to operate. Also available is a 12x12 power shuttle. This increases efficiency and is an especially valuable convenience when doing loader work.

Optional Creeper Transmission
Creeper Transmission Option Copy: An optional creeper transmission can be added to the 12x12 transmission of Farmall Utility A tractors. This adds eight very slow forward speeds and eight very slow reverse speeds, providing a 20x20 transmission for operational speeds as slow as 6 feet per minute.
