Case-IH improves Farmlift spec for 2019

Case-IH has added a number of new features to its most popular Farmlift telehandler models.

Maximum load capacity has increased by 100kg on the two 6m machines – the 633 and 636 – while the 7m 737 Farmlift model has an extra 200kg, meaning it tops out at 3,700kg.

The larger 7m and 9m machines remain unchanged in the lifting department but can now be ordered with a new transmission that has six forward and three reverse speeds in a semi-automatic set up, running in auto through gears four, five and six, with a 34kph top speed.

The new gearbox also features a more efficient torque converter, with improved gear ratios and new electronic modulation to help with smoother shifting.  

Operator comfort has also been improved with automatic lubrication now available and a heated seat option on all models. All upgrades will be available on 2019 models.
