McCormick - Model X60 - Tractor
Developed as an evolution of the McCormick CX range, the new X60 series is designed to be even more powerful and reliable than its predecessor.Offered in the X60.20, X60.30, X60.40 and X60.50 (T3) models, this new tractor range provides increased performance, greater versatility and reduced operating costs. Compared to the CX range, the X60 series introduces two new engine ratings that further expand the tractor power range. In particular, the X60.50 model is powered by a new Perkins Tier 3 112-hp, 4-cylinder turbo-aftercooled engine with electronic common-rail injection system and Power Management. The Power Management system is designed to automatically boost the engine power up to 121 hp, along with the torque, when the 1000 rpm PTO is engaged or during transport over rough ground. In addition, during road transport at 40 km/h, the engine speed drops down to 1830 rpm, resulting in lower noise and improved fuel economy.
Major innovations include a new Argo Tractors manufactured transmission that provides a three speed powershift giving 36 forward and 12 reverse speeds. A creep speed transmission can also be factory fitted as an option to achieve 48 forward and 16 reverse speeds for specialised applications. The electronically-controlled hydraulic power shuttle now features a (Shuttle Modulation Control), which allows the operator to fine tune the responsiveness of the clutch and power shuttle to suit the operating conditions and the implement being used. This makes the tractor easier to operate and helps prolong the life of the equipment.
The X60 range also features a new front axle which incorporates wet disc brakes for added braking capacity and safety on slopes as well as a 100% locking differential for maximum traction in tough slippery conditions.
Other features of the X60 range include the possibility to fit up to five remote valves and a more powerful rear hitch that provides a maximum lift capacity of 5000 kg. The Lower link draft sensing ensures accurate implement control and the system incorporates a transport anti bounce control as standard. At the rear a variety of trailer hitches are available including a Telescopic Auto Hitch for ease of operation.
