New mid-range McCormick
X6 Series tractors unveiled
New mid-range additions to the McCormick tractor range were
unveiled at LAMMA.
The 110hp McCormick X6.35, 119hp X6.45 and 126hp X6.55 were
exhibited at the event, and slot into the range between the slightly
smaller 85-113hp McCormick X5 Series and the larger 111-140hp X6.4
Series tractors. "These new models provide an attractive option for
operators wanting extra power and performance over our X5 Series
tractors or similar models from other manufacturers but who
are not ready for the jump to the X6.4 range," said Ray Spinks, sales
director and general manager at
McCormick distributor, AgriArgo
UK & Ireland. "With up to 126hp,
a choice of transmission and
power take-off (PTO) packages,
and a spacious but relatively
low-profile cab, the new models
make an especially interesting
proposition for small-to-
medium-sized livestock farms."
All three newcomers are
powered by compact Deutz 3.6L
four-cylinder engines.
A powershuttle transmission
is standard, with 12x12 and
16x16 creep manually selected
gears, or 36x12 and 48x16 creep
with three-speed powershift
providing quick speed changes
under load.
An eco option, which delivers
40kph at lower engine revs,
and four-speed PTO with
economy gearing for both
540rpm and 1,000rpm, helps
optimise fuel economy on
tractors engaged in a lot of road
work or powering PTO-driven
equipment, according to the
company. A 66L/minute gear
pump for hydraulic services is
complemented by a 30L/min
pump dedicated to steering and
control functions such as the
hydraulic PTO and four-wheel
drive clutches. The rear lift is
rated at 6,000kg.
Cab suspension is available for
the first time on a McCormick
of this size, and so too are a
touch screen monitor, Isobus
implement control and GPS
The new models are expected to
be available from late April.
