The T-MAX series is midway between the C-MAX range, of which it inherits the cab and the wheel base. The front and rear field lights as well as the front grille have been newly conceived and feature a superb new look. The modular and versatile transmission is available with four synchronized gears and three mechanical speed ranges (SPEED FOUR) with hydraulically controlled oilbath multi-plate PTO as a basic version. The entry level 12+12 is available on both 30 km/h and 40 km/h versions and is combined with an intermediate 24 +12 version equipped with mechanical reverse shuttle and overdrive Synchro Shuttle versions.
A substantial novelty is represented by the combination of the hydraulic reverse shuttle with the T Tronic three-shift option ( H-M-L high-medium-low) which triples the gears of the basic transmission to achieve 36 forward + 12 reverse speeds. Power Shuttle versions. A creep transmission is available as an option on both Synchro and Power Shuttle versions. The Power Shuttle version is equipped with a De-clutch system allowing the operator to change mechanical gears by simply depressing the button placed on the gear shift lever without using the clutch pedal. The De-clutch system is engaged by an electronic control unit, the same one controlling the hydraulic reverse shuttle, the T Tronic H-M-L gearbox and the PTO.
The PTO comes with a choice of 3 speeds – 540, 750 (540 Eco) and 1000 rpm according to the requested version. The mechanical power lift (electronic power lift only on Power Shuttle version) is equipped with draft control function on the lower links.
The four models feature also new engines: the “80” model is fitted with an aspirated engine, the “90” with a turbocharged engine, and both the “100” and “110” versions are equipped with a turbo after-cooled engine, all of them complying with the Tier 3 emission standards. The new T-MAX Series represents the McCormick technological innovation as well as a winning combination of two ergonomic, reliable and high performing ranges such as the C-MAX featuring the essence of modernity.
