Power Through Every Chore.
The utility Farmall U tractors offer the ultimate Farmall experience. These heavy-duty, premium utility tractors with high-capacity hydraulics are ideal for the most demanding chores – whether you’re on the ranch, running a mixed grain operation, or even a municipality. Versatility, comfort, and superior visibility is what make the utility Farmall U the ultimate multi-tasker.


The Right Horsepower for the Job
Similar to larger Case IH tractors, the utility Farmall U series tractors feature the groundbreaking engineering of Case IH FPT Engines. This powerful, 4-cylinder 3.4L FPT engine features a quick throttle response and builds power fast. Yet, the precise electronic metering of fuel delivered with electronic high-pressure common-rail fuel injection ensures efficient operation while maintaining high horsepower levels. Engineered for dependable, quiet, clean operation, the turbocharged and after cooled, clean burning, fuel efficient engine is Tier 4 B/Final-emissions certified.

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.

Constant Engine RPM
For tasks that require a steady engine rpm regardless of load or ground speed, such as baling hay on uneven terrain or powering a spray pump or other PTO-driven implements, Constant Engine RPM (CERPM) holds a steady engine speed and prevents engine racing or dragging. CERPM lets you create two preset engine RPM levels, and then easily fine-tune them in 10 rpm or 100 rpm increments.

Wastegate Turbocharger
Count on the wastegate turbocharger to boost engine power and torque while reducing noise emissions. There’s little turbo lag time, and the wastegate turbocharger maintains boost pressure across engine RPMs.

Tier 4 B/Final Compliant
Engines use an internal Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system to meet Tier 4 B/Final requirements. A maintenance-free particulate matter catalyst provides for interruption-free operation.


Proven Semi-Powershift Transmission
The 16×16 speed semi-powershift transmission earned its top-of-the-line reputation in our Maxxum series tractors. The high-performance transmission includes a clutch-free, electrohydraulic power shuttle for smooth directional changes, plus a host of features designed to help increase operator productivity and reduce fatigue.

Power Shuttle
The ergonomic power shuttle includes three adaptable settings, allowing you to operate the electrohydraulic power shuttle without taking your hand off the wheel.

Creeper Transmission
For specialty-crop and other operations that require precision, choose the 32×32 creeper transmission option.

Better Braking
The transmission on utility Farmall U tractors features a brake system that improves braking performance. Optional heavy-duty brake disks offer extended life over standard brakes.
