Acclaim for Case IH’s accomplished tractors in Uganda
Case IH and Agriserv, Uganda’s distributor for CASE IH tractors and combines, proudly display their popular JXT and Magnum tractors in Kampala, Uganda | The tractors get special attention from the national minister of agriculture | Advanced engines and excellent features enhance the reputation of these imposing machines.
Case IH’s striking tractors stole the show at the annual and foremost agricultural event in the country – the Harvest Money Expo agricultural exhibition at the Kololo Independence Grounds in the Ugandan capital of Kampala. The tractors on show at the Agriserv exhibition stall, including the renowned JXT75 and Magnum 250, generated much interest from over 35,000 visitors in attendance during the three-day show in March 2022. Several leading farmers and government officials visited the strategically well-placed stall, including the Honourable Minister of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries, Frank Tumwebaze, who took great pleasure in starting up and driving one of the JXT75 models.
The impressive JXT75 delivers 75hp (56 kW) engine power and is the flagship model of the JXT series, which has a legendary reputation as a reliable and economical workhorse. These models are perfect for small farms, yet robust enough to use as utility tractors in any farming business. Boasting outstanding power, speed, lift capacity and pulling strength, these tractors far exceed most farmers’ expectations while maintaining high fuel efficiency.
The JXT75 delivers high engine backup torque and can deal effortlessly with sudden loads at constant engine revolutions. They deliver more power in the working range with a lower drop in revs per minute (rpm).
JXT tractors are designed to run a variety of implements, and their hydraulic system handles them all with ease. These machines adjust the height of implements according to the soil and the requirements of the application based on 24 sensing positions. The Lift-O-Matic™ rear linkage control with height limiter ensures the accurate setting of implement lift height. The standard three-point hitch has a lift capacity of 1,500 kg and the optional Assisted Ram feature provides extra lifting capacity of up to 2,000 kg on the JXT75.
The tractor’s wide platform provides ample space for the operator. The ergonomic layout puts all the controls within perfect reach, including a side power take-off (PTO) lever. This, together with the side shift gear levers and the excellent visibility, results in comfortable and productive operation.
According to Jim Middleton, Agriserv’s managing director, the Case IH tractors on display, not only garnered lively interest but also numerous enquiries.
“Case IH tractors and equipment, including combine harvesters, are held in high regard in Uganda. The JXT series enjoys a great reputation for its versatility and all-round ability and the JXT75 offers a proficient and powerful machine for virtually any task on the farm, making it a desirable choice among local farmers,” he said.
