McCormick X70 at Grasslands UK and Cereals 2012
Tue 24/04/2012A new five-model range of six-cylinder tractors will be unveiled at Grassland UK and the Cereals Event as McCormick distributor AgriArgo UK prepares to replace the popular McCormick XTX and TTX series.
Revealing the top model in the new range at these two events emphasises the versatile role of the design in providing the power needed to operate silage-making and feeding equipment in the livestock sector and tillage equipment for growing arable crops.
Powered by a ‘leaner and greener’ version of the 6.7-litre McCormick BetaPower engine, the new X70 holds the prospect of lower fuel costs while also promising improved performance and productivity.
“The core features that make the current XTX and TTX tractors an increasingly popular choice for farmers and contractors will still be a part of the X70 Series,” emphasises McCormick product specialist Paul Wade. “The XtraSpeed transmission with its eight powershift steps provides a very accessible choice of 32 forward speeds, while the high-output hydraulics system provides a quick response to pressure and flow demands from all types of equipment.”
For the X70 Series, engineering and design work have focused on the engine to deliver more performance while meeting latest emissions rules, and on the cab to provide operators with an even better place to work.
