New Mccormick Hits The Farm Market

New Mccormick Hits The Farm Market

Perkins 4 cylinder diesel engine powers the X50 lineup and meets Tier 4A emission standards.

McCormick has been showing off its new X50 tractor at various venues this winter as part of its 2013 offering.

The X50 includes four models ranging from 85 engine horsepower to 113 hp, all produced by a Perkins 854 Series 4-cylinder turbo-charged diesel engine that meets Tier 4A standards with only a diesel particulate filter.

The Perkins power moves to the ground via either a standard 24X12 synchroshuttle transmission or a 12X12 power shuttle. Buyers also have the option of a 36X12 three-range gearbox or a 16X16 transmission with a shuttle and creeper.

McCormick's new X50 comes in four models with 85-113 horsepower and features a cab, ROPS and 4WD.

A 21-gallon per minute hydraulic system with two remotes is standard, and the Category II three-point h hitch is rated at 9,590 pounds. The power takeoff is electro-hydraulically controlled and includes a 540/1000 rpm drives. A ground speed PTO is optional.

Steering is capable of 55 degrees and features an electro-hydraulic differential lock and true four-wheel-drive engine braking.
