Case JX1100U


Mixed Farmer
Considering purchasing a Case JX1100U, I've heard some good reports, but thought there's a wider audience on here for more opinions!! What's the difference between a JX1100U and and JXU110? The tractor also has a Quicke Q45 loader, are these reliable and well made? only had experience with Mailleux! Thank you in advance for your help and opinions! Jake.


Our 2004 JX1100U with Q45 loader has just gone over 7000 hours and has never had any major issues. We got it as repo from case credit with 250 hours in 2008 for 10k less than it was passed in for at an auction the week before. Was our only tractor for 10 years and did all the mowing, raking, baling, carting, feeding etc. anything that needed doing. Q45 loader is maybe a touch big for the tractor, we have wheel weights and water in the back tyres, but has a good reach and makes it a very good loader tractor. Overall a very good tractor that has had next to no issues

JX1100U was from 2004-2008 and the JXU105 (can't say a ever saw a JXU110) was the next model before they went back to the Farmall name. Avoid the JX models as they were built elsewhere and weren't to the same quality.

They are good simple tractors,better than the Farmalls that replaced them,which is evident in residual values...Yes q45 is a touch too big.

Rejuvenating swards: Which option is best?

Maintaining grass quality during mid-season grazing is important. Farmers can maintain quality by entering ideal grazing covers of 1,300 – 1,500kg DM/ha, and grazing down to a residual of 4cm every rotation.

If you are now in a situation where cows are not cleaning out paddocks as well as they should be, leading to the development of steamy grass within the sward, here are some options.

Common options for rejuvenating swards include:

  1. Take a silage cut, probably into bales, remove the material and start again with the aftermath...
