Case IH Compact Farmall® 55C
More Power for Every Chore
A turbocharged, 3-cylinder, 1.9-L engine delivers increased power across the Compact Farmall C series tractor lineup. Models range from 35 to 55 hp (28-47 PTO hp) — a 5-hp increase over previous models. These engines also provide greater displacement and up to 20 percent greater torque output.
Common Rail Direct Injection
The latest fuel-injection technology offers several advantages, including improved power performance, increased efficiency and cleaner emissions.
Tier 4 B/Final Compliant
Engines use an internal Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system to meet Tier 4 B/Final requirements. A 50-hour Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) regeneration interval helps keep your workday humming.
Transmission Options For Your Operation
Choose the standard mechanical shuttle transmission or the popular 3-range hydrostatic option.
Mechanical Shuttle Transmission
The standard shuttle transmission features 12x12 (three nonsynchronized ranges, four synchronized speeds) on Compact Farmall models 35C and 40C, and 16x16 (four nonsynchronized ranges, four synchronized speeds) on Compact Farmall models 45C and 55C.
A 3-range hydrostatic transmission is available on all four models. An easy-to-operate, 2-pedal system, electric cruise control and infinite operating speeds makes this option popular choice when considering operator convenience and fatigue. It’s an excellent choice for tasks, such as loader work and mowing, requiring frequent directional and speed changes.
Work in Your Comfort Zone
Whether you prefer the great outdoors or a climate-controlled workspace, you can count on the deluxe features of the Compact Farmall C series tractors. They create a work environment where comfort and convenience fuel your productivity, all day long.
Operator’s Platform: A large operator’s platform provides easy access and exit and gives you plenty of room to maneuver. A thick rubber floor mat dampens noise and vibration. That helps reduce operator fatigue, helping you stay more productive all day.
Deluxe Seat: A comfortable seat can help those long days seem just a bit shorter. Armrests and an adjustable backrest let you personalize your seat. An incline-plane mount lets taller operators position the seat for maximum comfort.
Tilting Steering Wheel: Position the steering wheel precisely for your comfort zone. Or simply tilt it up and out of the way for easier entry and exit.
Cab Option Comforts
Room to Move: Our comfortable cab offers the ultimate work environment. With 63 cubic feet of interior space, the spacious, open platform and large doors make for easy entry and exit and give you plenty of room to maneuver.
Climate Control: A comfort-creating HVAC system lets you customize your workspace. The rear window opens for fresh air circulation and enhances visibility.
Easy on the Eyes: Large windows and well-designed structural support maximize the 47.9 square feet of glass for 360-degree sightlines. An interior sunshade and multiple rearview mirrors improve visibility while reducing fatigue.
Constant Engine Speed Button: For tasks that require a steady engine rpm regardless of load or ground speed, such as powering a spray pump or other PTO-driven implements, a flip of the CES button holds engine rpm at the speed you select. This prevents engine racing or dragging and provides consistency, whether you’re controlling weeds along the driveway or mowing rugged terrain.
Factory-installed Loader Joystick: A loader turns your tractor into a versatile, powerful workhorse. Our loader joystick comes standard from the factory and is integrated into the right-hand console for easier operation and greater productivity.
Seat-side Storage: Whether a place for hitch pins, a pair of pliers or an afternoon snack, a handy storage compartment within easy reach fits the bill.
Seatback Storage Pocket: You’ll never leave the farmstead without your operators manual and other important documents with this convenient seatback storage space.
Open Workspace: The large, obstacle-free operator’s platform provides excellent all-around visibility from the tractor seat, including rear visibility to the drawbar, PTO and 3-point hitch.
Forward Views: The stylish, sloped hood on Farmall series tractors provides clear, unobstructed forward sightlines to the front wheels, loader and other mid- and front-mount attachments.
Instrumentation: Well-placed controls and the design of the instrumentation dash provide easy access without inhibiting visibility.
Protection With Flexibility: A two-post ROPS structure provides protection without sacrificing visibility. The structure is foldable so you can complete tasks in low-overhead areas, and an optional sunshade canopy provides sun protection on long, hot days.
