McCormick introduces the new CX series tractors. The CX 90, 100 and 110 are available in power ranges from 83 to 102 hp.

Equipped with a new modulation system that allows softer and more progressive clutch engagement, the new models also feature an improved braking system with doubled braking capacity.

All three models feature Xtrashift transmission with standard power shuttle and three full power shifts under load in each of the 12 gears. Tier 3 Perkins engines, complete with turbochargers and intercooling, are standard on the 100 and 110 models, which also have lengthened footing.

The CX models offer panoramic views from the cab and redesigned dashboard with simple-to-read, uncluttered readouts. Other new cab features include improved heating and air conditioning systems and a functioning sunroof.
