X7.6 VT-Drive is the main new entry in 2020 in the high-power McCormick segment and the leading player in the sales season for the first quarter of 2021.
With a brand new wrap-around design and a large cab in perfect automotive style, the X7.6 VT-Drive range adds a number of key features that allow it to achieve maximum performance, reliability and comfort.
With the transition to Stage V engines the combination of a performing engine and the 4-stage continuously variable VT-Drive transmission gives excellent response levels, making any kind of work particularly easy, the range was conceived to meet the needs of modern farms and the most demanding contractors.
Let’s take a closer look at its new features.
The new X7.6 VT-Drive range consists of 3 models X7.621 – X7.623 – X7.624, with power ratings of up to 240 HP. To guarantee power and traction in every field of operation, McCormick has relied on the super-tested 6-cylinder Beta Power Fuel Efficiency engine suspended on a robust load-bearing chassis, with 6.7L displacement and Stage V emissions thanks to the Hi-eSCR2.
The SCR system is combined with the DOC (Diesel Oxidation Catalyst), a passive oxidising catalyst capable of reducing pollutants and meeting the most stringent anti-pollution regulations. There’s also the BIC (Best in Class) package, exclusively available for the X7.6 VT-Drive model, which features a larger oil filter that helps reduce engine oil waste by extending the maintenance intervals two-fold, from 600 to 1,000 hours
The innovative VT-Drive technology transmission, with 4 sets of crown wheels and oil cooled clutches, features four speed ranges, from a minimum of 0.04 km/h to a maximum of 50 km/h (where allowed), thus facilitating productivity in every work environment.
Two key strengths among others:
When the power take-off is engaged, the engine’s Power Plus system increases the available power and keeps it constant, even under load variations.
At a structure level, the VT-Drive transmission confirms the load-bearing chassis with its distinctive cast iron frame and the front axle with independent suspension arms, which guarantee
The commitment to make the work of professionals increasingly less tiring has led McCormick to design a semi-active suspension cab for the X7.6 VT-Drive, that combines high-quality materials, an excellent level of ergonomics and attention to detail, to guarantee maximum comfort and spaciousness. Here’s how:
The ISObus system and the assisted driving function optimise the economy of the field work thanks to efficient tractor-implement management throughout the entire work site.
The X7.6 VT-Drive model is fully compatible with this technology, and ensures superior productivity, excellent fuel economy, and a lower environmental impact. The DSM even serves as an ideal user interface for the management of the implements, with concrete advantages in terms of the ergonomics of the controls.
Furthermore, the advanced McCormick Fleet Management system makes it possible to manage the fleet of tractors providing immediate, accurate geopositioning data and geofencing information (surface of the earth being worked), hours worked and diesel fuel and urea consumptions.
In line with the high levels of technology, the attention to design also underwent an important restyling. The main new features include:
Let’s see how these innovations really make field work easier:
The X7.6 VT-Drive guarantees excellent traction in its power segment thanks to its weight distribution and engine installation on a cast iron chassis, ensuring grip, stability and excellent performance on uneven ground, on slopes and in general in demanding conditions.
The X7.6 VT-Drive is designed to work with large implements that absorb a great deal of power. In order to further increase its versatility, the range can be equipped with a front lift and PTO, for the combined use of both front and rear implements.
The new Semi-Active Cab Suspension system, makes this model particularly comfortable for road transport operations. Moreover, the Engine Brake system allows the operator to reduce the engine rpm by engaging the engine brake, for greater safety.
Compared to the 2 speed ranges normally available on the market, the innovative continuously variable transmission technology with 4 speed ranges renders the X7.6 VT-Drive range extremely versatile, for maximum productivity under any working conditions both on the field and road.
Il The PMS Precision Steering Management and the ISObus systems maximise the economic yield of each process, while at the same time improving comfort and safety. Thanks to the ISObus system (optional), X7.6 VT-Drive allows the operator to manage the implements mounted without having to install dedicated ISObus monitors in the cab.
