2019 McCormick X7.660
Each McCormick tractor reflects the passion and dedication of those involved in designing testing and producing this superb range of tractors. With power ratings from 143 to 188 hp, these tractors offer the ultimate in style, technology operator comfort and productivity. Seven models in the range are all powered by the new ‘Betapower Fuel Efficiency’ four-and six-cylinder turbo engines with multivalve technology and common rail injection system. These engines meet Tier 4 Interim emission regulations using the SCR system, an exhaust gas after-treatment technology that reduces exhaust emission without compromising engine performance. The X7.440, X7.450 and X7.460 models feature self-supporting 4.5L, four-cylinder engines, while the X7.650, X7.660, X7.670 and X7.680 models are equipped with 6.7L, six-cylinder engines located within a rugged chassis which helps reduce noise and vibration levels within the cab. The X7 tractors have different wheelbases that help maximise stability and manoeuvrability. The ‘PS-Drive’ transmission with 24 speeds in six ranges offers a four-speed on-the-go powershift and incorporates electro hydraulic range shifting and a left hand steering-column power shuttle. The transmission is controlled electronically via pushbuttons located on the multi-function armrest and features an ‘Autoshift’ function, ensuring easier operation in the field or during transport operations. A creep speed unit is available as standard for those tasks requiring slow speeds such as harvesting or specialist seed bed preparation. The electro hydraulically-engaged rear PTO features an exchangeable shaft providing 6 or 21 splines and offers four speeds 540/540E/1000/1000E rpm. The electronic control of the PTO always ensures smooth and modulated implement start-up. The system also incorporates PTO headland management to eliminate implement drive line damage when raising the machine.The X7 PS-Drive model comes in two versions with different hydraulic systems: EFFICIENT and PREMIUM. The Efficient version features an open-centre hydraulic system with a flow rate of 88+44 l/min to operate the hitch and steering and up to six mechanical remote valves. The Premium version is equipped with a closed-centre hydraulic system that provides a flow rate of 123+44 l/min to the hitch and steering and operates up to seven electro-hydraulic remote valves.. The electronically-controlled rear hitch with draft sensing on the lower links provides a maximum lift capacity of 9300 Kg and allows a precise control of the implement. Aslo included is a Ride Control system to help protect the implement and reduce shock loadings on the tractor during transport. A radar sensor is also available for operations where true ground speed is required, this can also be used in difficult ground conditions to improve tractive performance and reduce wheel slip. True versatility can be obtained with a front hitch capable of lifting up to 3500 Kg and afront PTO. Lift & Lower switches are provided at the front to assist in connecting or disconnecting front implements. The front axle, either rigid-mounted or with electronically-controlled independent suspensions, offers a 55° steering angle, providing excellent manoeuvrability in confined spaces.
