X7 VT-DRIVE

Each McCormick tractor reflects the passion and dedication of those involved in its design, testing and production.  The new X7 VT-Drive tractors offer the ultimate in performance, technology, operator comfort and ease of operation.  Two models in the range are powered by the new BETAPOWER diesel engines with multivalve technology and common rail direct fuel injection.  These engines meet Tier 4 emission regulations using advanced SCR, an exhaust gas after-treatment technology that reduces exhaust emission without compromising engine performance.  The X7.450 VT-Drive model features a 4-cylinder engines that generates up to 160 horsepower, while the X7.670 VT-Drive model boasts a 6-cylinder engine that delivers a massive 194 maximum horsepower to get the job done.  The VT-Drive transmission is a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that provides infinite speeds from zero to the maximum travel speed, up to 32 mph (50 kph).  The 4-speed rear PTO engages electro-hydraulically, using a wet multi-disc clutch, and features an exchangeable shaft to match any implement on the farm.  PTO modulation always ensures smooth implement start-up.  The X7 VT-Drive models are available with a closed-center hydraulic system that pumps out up to 32.5 gpm of flow for the implements and loader.  The electronically-controlled rear hitch with draft sensing provides a maximum lift capacity of 20,500 lbs (9300 kg) and allows precise control of mounted implements.  Also included is a Ride Control system to help protect a mounted implement and reduce shock loadings on the tractor during transport.  A radar-enhanced slip control system is also available to improve traction, or for operations where true ground speed is required.  True versatility can be obtained with a front 3-point hitch capable of lifting up to 7,700 lbs (3500 kg) and a front PTO.  The 4wd front axle, either rigid or suspended, offers a 55° steering angle for excellent maneuvrability in confined spaces.  The Premiere Cab is a true high-tech control center that allows the operator to work the tractor with maximum ease and comfort.  The cab features the Data Screen Manager (DSM) as standard equipment on the VT-Drive models.  This 12” color, touch-screen virtual termianl allows the driver to control the performance and select functions of both tractor and ISO BUS implement.  The cab interior offers the operator a fully sound-proofed, functional, ergonomic environment with high-quality, automotive-grade fit and finish to further enhance the driving experience.

 

 
 

BETAPOWER Engines with Advanced SCR Technology

All models of the X7 Series are powered by new BETAPOWER diesel engines that are EPA Tier 4 compliant.  The two new X7 models with VT-Drive continuously variable transmission (CVT) feature two different engines:  the X7.450 VT-Drive model boasts a 4.5 liter 4-cylinder engine that puts out up to 160 horsepower, while the X7.670 VT-Drive model has a 6.7 liter 6-cylinder engine that generates up to 194 horsepower.  Both engines are equipped with turbocharging and intercooling, and common rail direct fuel injection that maximizes performance and develops massive torque to get work done.  To help meet the tough EPA emissions regulations, these BETAPOWER engines use advanced selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology, an exhaust gas after-treatment technology that reduces harmful exhaust emissions without compromising the tractor's performance. SCR technology utilizes diesel exhasut fluid (DEF) that is injected into the exhaust stream where it reacts with the hot exhaust gas to significantly reducing harmful NOx emissions.  SCR technology is simple, reliable, and allows the engine to run at its peak performance without comprimise.

Both models incorporate the PowerPlus feature where the engine can "boost" horsepower when certain operating conditions are met.  During heavy PTO operations, such as pulling a large baler or hay mower, or during high speed transport operations, the BETAPOWER engine will generate additional horsepower and greater torque levels to pull through tough spots and keep the machine working.

VT-Drive Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)

The VT-Drive is a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that is built by McCormick's partner ZF, a world-renowned manufacturer of transmissions and drive systems.  The X7 Series with VT-Drive offers smooth, reliable performance in any application.  CVT combines the efficiency and reliability of a mechanical gearbox with the infinite speeds range of a hydrostatic drive.  The result is a tractor that can achieve any ground speed, from creeper to maximum transport speed, to match the needs of any job around the farm.  Smooth, seamless acceleration offers great comfort while working, and also provides constant power transfer to the ground during speed changes for improved traction and greater productivity.

Along with exceptional performance, X7 VT-Drive tractors are simple to operate.  Three operating modes give the operator a choice in how he/she wants to drive the tractor:  Automatic Mode, Manual Mode, PTO Mode.  There is even a cruise control button to allow for greater control of the tractor with a simple push of a button.   

The real beneifts of a CVT are found in its versatility.  The engine and transmission work together to find the right engine RPM and travel speed for the job at hand:  high RPM with low ground speed for draft or specialty applications, or high ground speed with low engine RPM for efficient transport operations.  

 
 

Hydraulics Built for Performance

LOAD-SENSING HYDRAULIC SYSTEM
The X7 series tractors feature a closed-center load-sensing hydraulic system with a variable-displacement piston pump. This means that the pump always delivers the exact amount of oil that the system requires, instantly and on demand, thereby eliminating unnecessary power waste. The system supplies up to 32.5 gpm (123 l/min) to the hitch and remote valves.


ELECTRONICALLY-OPERATED REAR HITCH
With the raise/lower control conveniently located on the Multi-Function Controller and the main settings integrated into the right-hand console, the rear hitch guarantees precise implement control. Offering a maximum lift capacity of up to 20,500 lbs, the Category 3 rear 3-point hitch is equipped with lower link draft sensing to handle precise tillage work with ease.


REMOTE VALVES

The X7 tractors can be fitted with up to six remote valves for controlling implements and attachments (5 rear remote valves and a sixth front valve with front 3-point hitch). Simple fingertip and push button controls make operation convenient and precise. An available mini joystick controls the front lift and front remote valve if equipped. All valves can be set to operate for specific flow rates and flow times to meet specific hydraulic tasks. Hydraulic power beyond is also built in for those implements that require a dedicated oil supply but have their own valve system.

 

FACTORY LOADER JOYSTICK AND MID VALVES

All X7 models can be equipped from the facotry with an electronic loader joystick in the right hand armrest console for convenient operation of a front loader.  Two valves mounted at the tractor's mid-point under the cab provide easy access for front loader connection.  

 
 
 

Premiere Cab, a True High Tech Control Center

Two years after the initial launch of the X7 Series, the Premiere Cab has been updated with cosmetic and ergonomic upgrades to improve operator comfort and ease of operation, making long hours in the field seem shorter and as stress-free and comfortable as possible.

The new cab retains the same design as the previous version – a four-post frame with flat foot deck, large rear-hinged doors that provide ease of access to the driving position, and one-piece panoramic windscreen that gives unequalled all-round visibility.  The deluxe upholstered swivel seat with dynamic air suspension system and fully automatic height adjustment features an optional backrest ventilation system and a multi-function right-hand armrest that houses the main tractor controls.  Also integrated into the armrest is a 12” data screen manager (DSM) touch screen monitor that controls tractor performance and functions.  The telescopic tilt-adjustable steering wheel is designed to tilt with the instrument pane

The new cab also includes several new features as standard equipment, including an inside rear view mirror, additional 12V sockets for portable devices, a bottle holder and a refined roof hatch frame.  The cab is pressurized to keep a clean, dust-free environment and has a sound level of only 70 dBa.  A highly-efficient automatic climate control in Premium models maintains the desired cab temperature regardless of the outdoor weather conditions.  To further increase operator comfort, an electronically-controlled hydraulic cab suspension system is available as an option.
