McCormick expect a rush for impressive X50 tractor

Livestock farmers looking for a lively all-round tractor will get a power bonus if they opt for the power shuttle version of the McCormick X50 tractor series. Three of the four models in the line-up spanning 63 to 83kW (85 to 113hp) have Power Plus, an electronic engine management system that releases additional power when operating a pto-driven implement or hauling a trailer, spreader or implement. Add the increased torque, improved throttle response and better fuel economy provided by the Perkins engine, and the X50 Series makes an attractive package.

A refreshed cab interior with instrumentation that includes a fuel consumption read-out and other useful management data adds to the appeal of the newcomer. Standard specification of the power shuttle model also includes an air-suspension seat, push-back pick-up hitch, true all-wheel braking and locking front-axle differential. Maximum power output of the X50.20 will be 63kW (85hp), the X50.30 70kW (95hp), the X50.40 75kW (102hp) and the X50.50 83kW (113hp).

Opting for the hydraulic power-shuttle transmission brings a durable wet clutch installation with gear lever-mounted declutch button, Bosch electronic rear lift and draft control, and an air seat in the cab. And with this specification, power outputs for draft work are 65kW (88hp), 70kW (95hp) and 77kW (105hp) for the first three models, rising to 70kW (95hp), 75kW (102hp) and 83kW (113hp) for pto-implement and transport operations when Power Plus automatically engages.

McCormick's X50 is the first tractor to use the Perkins 854E-E34TA compact four-cylinder diesel engine. With a peak output of 450Nm, the Perkins unit has a nine per cent torque advantage at lower revs compared with the engine it replaces. Rear hydraulic lift is rated at 4,750kg and an integrated front linkage and pto can be added.

Two lever-operated spool valves are standard, with another two available - including kick-out and float/motor options - operated by a conveniently located joystick. A 52-lit/min gear pump for external services and on-board functions is supplemented by a dedicated steering pump. For first availability of the McCormick X50 Series, contact Clark Equipment for your nearest dealer on 1300 784 451.
