My uncle used to say a good comfortable tractor was the only thing between him and a bad back….and he didn’t have time to be laying around with a bad back.

The new cab’s improved ergonomics include a new control panel that moves and tilts with the steering column and an available high-visibility roof panel. They add comfort and convenience to the job, whether it’s moving bales home from hayfields or wrapping up the planting season.

The electronically controlled engine offers improved performance and response over mechanically injected engines. Operators will appreciate the engine’s other features, including:

My uncle retired several years ago, but he would like these rugged, dependable 2015 Farmall 100A series tractors. They get the job done while saving your back.
