Joining Efficient versions of other models in the line-up which were added to the range last year, simpler-spec versions of the two most powerful models in McCormick’s X7 Series have been introduced.
Simpler Efficient specification is now available on the two most powerful models in the McCormick X7 Series.
Complimenting Premium-spec X7s, Efficient specification was introduced last year on 143-166hp four-cylinder models in the McCormick X7 Series and on a pair of six-cylinder tractors – the 160hp X7.650, which itself was a new addition to the range, and the 165/175hp X7.660.
Now, it is also available on the X7.670, which has 177hp for draft work boosting to 192hp for pto implements and towing duties, and on the X7.680 with 188hp rising to 212hp.
Standard specification for the new models includes three mechanical spool valves plus one electric valve; 123-litre/min load-sensing hydraulics plus a 44-litre/min pump dedicated to steering and ancillaries; a 24 by 24-speed powershift transmission; four-speed pto with ‘economy’ as well as ‘power’ modes; and 9,300kg rear lift capacity.
Efficient-spec tractors have controls for the transmission, pto and hydraulics located on a side console.
The most noticeable difference between the lower and higher spec tractors is the migration of primary controls from the tractors armrest to a fixed console on the right-hand fender.
Spool valve control is also predominantly mechanical, climate control is manual and fewer work-lights are included.
A 50kph option, packaged with hydraulic cab and multi-link front axle suspension can be added to the final specification, together with air trailer braking.
