New X8 VT-Drive Range: a perfect blend of power and style

At McCormick high power has a name: X8. Boasting over 300 hp, the X8 tractor series combines true power with comfort and style. Specially designed for demanding contractors who work full time on farming businesses, X8 tractors have been developed with an eye to the functional potential offered by electronics and designed to seamlessly integrate future technologies. To meet tomorrow’s challenges, the X8 series offers the operator a variety of high-grade features: automotive-style hood and fenders, a fully redesigned Premiere Cab with ergonomically-arranged, easy-to-use controls for the four-stage VT-Drive transmission, a bright DSM touchscreen monitor, a high-performance hydraulic system with up to 212 l/min flow rate and up to ten electro-hydraulic remote valves, and powerful Betapower Fuel Efficiency engines capable of delivering up to 310 hp for the X8.680 model.

 

Betapower Fuel Efficiency

The X8 series tractors feature Betapower Fuel Efficiency 6.7L, six-cylinder engines that deliver power ratings of 264, 286 and 310 hp. These engines are equipped with eVGT electronically-controlled variable- geometry turbocharger, common rail injection system and SCR exhaust gas after-treatment technology and meet the Tier4 Final emission regulations. The engine is located within a rugged chassis which helps reduce noise and vibration levels within the cab.The tilt-up hood opens wide to provide easy access to the engine compartment for routine service and maintenance. The coolers located in front of the radiator open fully from a single latch to provide easy cleaning in dusty conditions.

VT-Drive

The VT-Drive transmission is a continuously variable transmission that provides an infinite number of speed ratios from zero to the maximum speed permitted in the country of use (40 km/h, 50 km/h or 60 km/h). This transmission offers four speed ranges that allow the use of specific implements at varying speeds which can be programmed by the operator. The VT Easy Pilot proportional controller integrated into the multi-function armrest features a series of buttons that allow the operator to select speeds and ranges and to operate different functions such as the Remote Shuttle facility, rear hitch fast raise lower, speed cruise control, one remote valve and the headland management. All functions are clearly displayed on the instrument panel and on the DSM touch screen monitor.

 

New Premiere Cab: unequalled visibility and total comfort

When sitting behind the wheel of the X8, you will enjoy the panoramic view only a Premiere Cab can provide. The VT Easy Pilot proportional controller allows the operator fingertip control of all tractor functions. The air-suspended swivel seat with antivibration system and backrest ventilation combined with cab and independent front axle minimizes shocks ensuring the operator superior ride comfort in any condition. The automotive-grade fit and finish further enhances the operator comfort. The cab is pressurized to keep a clean, dust-free environment, while a highly-efficient automatic climate control maintains the desired cab temperature whatever the outdoor weather conditions.

 
 

Hydraulic system

The X8 series tractors feature a closedcentre hydraulic system with variabledisplacement pump. This means that the pump always delivers exactly the quantity of oil that the system requires, thereby eliminating unnecessary power waste. The system supplies 157 l/min to the hitch and remote valves and 115 l/min to the steering system, allowing for simultaneous operation of all hydraulic functions. A high-flow pump providing 212 l/min is available as an option. The electronically-controlled rear hitch is equipped with lower link draft sensing for accurate implement control and provides a maximum lift capacity of 12000 kg. The X8 tractors can be fitted with up to 10 electro-hydraulically controlled remote valves: six at the rear, two in mid-position and two at the front.
