COVID-19 update 20-12-21:

The LAMMA Show announced today that it will move its dates from January 11 and 12 to May 4 and 5, 2022, in response to the evolving COVID-19 situation due to the Omicron variant.


In the wake of its multiple new dealer signings, AgriArgo UK – which markets McCormick and Landini tractors – has big plans for LAMMA 2022, by hosting a number of new products.

Among the McCormick tractors on show, centre stage will be the new X7 short wheelbase models which were launched globally at the EIMA exhibition in Italy during November. The range has four semi-powershift P6-Drive transmission models and two VT-Drive CVT tractors, and will be making its UK debut at LAMMA.

Four-cylinder powerplants feature in the X7.417 P6-Drive (165hp max) and X7.418 P6-Drive (175hp), while there are six-cylinder engines in the X7.617 and X7.618, which have the same power ratings. The two VT-Drive CVT tractors are the 165hp/four-cyl X7.418 and the 175hp/six-cyl X7.618.

With both transmission types the specification includes a ‘stop and action’ clutch/brake system, which disengages drive via the brake pedals. All engines, which are sourced from FPT, meet Stage V emissions regulations and are turbocharged and intercooled, featuring a common rail electronic fuel injection system for better responsiveness.

The bonnet on the new SWB X7 models is restyled in line with other McCormicks, and lifts to 90° for full-service access. A 3500kg-capacity front linkage has been redesigned to enhance visibility and the rear lift capacity is 9300kg, with up to eight spool valves and a choice of 123 or 160 l/min closed-centre hydraulic systems.

Comfort-wise there is a choice of mechanical, or semi-active electronically controlled cab suspension. Wheelbase is 2.65m on four-cylinder models and 2.76m on six-cylinder tractors.

Other McCormick exhibits include a representative of the flagship X8 VT-Drive series, the 310hp X8.310. There will also be tractors from the long wheelbase X7 series, the X7.624 VT-Drive and a model from the X7.6 P6-Drive semi-powershift series.

The focus in the Landini area will be on smaller tractors suited to specialist markets. Models include representative machines from the Mistral2 range of 49-57hp, with Kohler Stage V three-cylinder engines and a compact exhaust gas after-treatment system that helps maintain a compact design.

From the REX4 series – available in fruit, special and vineyard versions – this range of 75, 90, 95, 102, and 112hp models are some of the most versatile in the Landini range and can be specified with options including front axle and cab suspension and Robo-Shift electro-hydraulic reverse shuttle with robotised speeds.

The will also be models from the latest four-cylinder SERIE 4 and SERIE 5, shown complete with Landini loaders.

The three-model SERIE 4, with power outputs of 61, 68 and 75hp, is a strong seller to livestock farmers. Specification includes a 2.1m wheelbase, mechanical rear linkage with 3000 kg lift capacity, optional front linkage and pto, and 52 l/min hydraulic system. Meanwhile, the four-cylinder 95/102/114hp SERIE 5 is topped by the 5-120 Dynamic, nominated as a finalist for the ‘Tractor of the Year 2022’ award in the Best Utility category.
