Following the lead of its sister brand New Holland, Case IH announced it is bringing back two-wheel drive tractors to the high end of its utility class models this year. The brand will offer buyers a choice of Maxxum tractors in the lower-cost two-wheel drive configuration with horsepower ranging from 116 to 145.
“By popular demand, we are excited to bring back two-wheel drive capabilities to our Maxxum tractor line up,” said Cole Carling, Maxxum tractor marketing manager, in a press release. “Removing the MFD feature reduces the purchase price, but still gives producers the dedicated horsepower to get the job done.”

These machines will still offer the specifications level built into the other tractors in the Maxxum line.Two-wheel drive tractors with 116 to 145 horsepower get added to Case IH’s Maxxum line this year.
