The music has changed

This was the theme of McCormick’s World Convention. Entitled “Xpression” It was the perfect platform to demonstrate the product developments and changes that are under way within Argo Tractors.

The biggest surprise at Agritechnica is the launch new the X7 VT Series, a range that marks the beginning of a new era for McCormick products by introducing the ZF continuously variable transmission into the X7 family. This version will be seen later in 2014. This range shares all the technology and styling of the X7 Series, offering customers an alternative choice of transmission to best suit their applications. Five models from 143 to 175 HP (188 HP with Power Plus) will be easy to operate and provide outstanding efficiency and productivity through the continuously variable transmission. The range will feature armrest controls on which all the transmission functions are grouped while the styling reflects the ultra-modern look of the X7 Series, with the “Premiere Cab” which is a true masterpiece of design, space and comfort, finished with materials used within the commercial and automotive industries. New lighting packages ensure perfect visibility during night work. Climbing the steps one appreciates the sturdy door handles and closing catches to keep the cab fully pressurized and the dust kept out. All controls are arranged logically, while other features include the tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, with integrated instrument panel that remains in the correct position relative to the steering position selected. Electronic engine speed memory plus Headland management functions can all be programmed as well. Plus “My switch” that selects a particular function frequently used. Passengers can ride in comfort on the new patented seat, which folds completely out of sight making it easier to get in and out of the tractor. Finally the option of a driver’s seat with ventilated and heated backrest to the air conditioned glove compartment, while the standard equipment also includes the radio with USB port, Bluetooth microphone and 4 loud speakers. Comfort and performance from features such as front axle and cab suspension make this a true contender in today’s market place.
