New models and new dealer signings will be the main highlights for visitors to the AgriArgo UK stand at LAMMA.

Taking centre stage on the McCormick portion of the stand will be the new X6HD, a brand new range which features an Argo-designed and built powershift transmisison. Other McCormick exhibits will includes 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 new Stage V McCormick X6.4HD P6-Drives sit squarely in an important sector of the market, with three models in the new range – the 135hp X6.413, the 145hp X6.414 and the 155hp X6.415. All figures are maximum power outputs, produced by 4.5-litre NEF 45 four-cylinder engines from FPT.

A compact powertrain and transmission layout allows for a short wheelbase of 2560mm, for better manoeuvrability. The P6-Drive transmission features four ranges, each with six powershift steps, providing 24F/24R speeds, extendable to 40R/40R when the creep option is specified.

Implement attachment specification includes a four-speed rear pto, rear lift capacity of up to 7200kg and optional 2500kg-capacity front linkage. Closed-centre hydraulics feature a 123 l/min pump capable of supplying up to seven spool valves.

The latest McCormick X7 SWB range comprises four semi-powershift P6-Drive transmission models and two VT-Drive CVT tractors.

Four-cylinder powerplants feature in the X7.417 P6-Drive (165hp max) and X7.418 P6-Drive (175hp max), 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 175hp/four-cyl X7.418 and the 175hp/six-cyl X7.618. Both transmissions include 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. Turbocharged and inter-cooled, they feature a common rail electronic fuel injection system providing increased responsiveness, lower fuel consumption and reduced emissions.

Bonnet styling has been refreshed in line with other McCormicks and the bonnet lifts to 90° for full service access. A 3500kg-capacity front linkage has been redesigned to enhance visibility. Rear lift capacity is 9300kg, and up to eight spool valves can be specified at the rear, with a choice of 123 or 160 l/min closed-centre hydraulic systems.

Plenty to see from Landini

The focus from Landini will be on smaller tractors suited to specialist and stock tasks.

Models on show will include representative tractors from the 49-57hp Mistral 2 range with Kohler Stage V three-cylinder engines and an exhaust gas after-treatment system that helps maintain a compact design.

Also on display will be models from the Rex 4 series. Available in fruit, special and vineyard versions, these 75, 90, 95, 102, and 112hp models can be specified with options including cab suspension and Robo-Shift electro-hydraulic reverse shuttle.
