Power and technology are joined by versatility and ease of handling in the new McCormick X5.085, the product that the Argo Tractors group brand strategically positions between X4 Stage V and the future X5 Stage V range, delivering a concrete response to all user demands in farms and especially the hay business. Its outstanding features and performance make it the perfect tractor for agile transport, front loader barn and shed work and light-duty open field work.
Thanks to the 3.4-litre, 4-cylinder and 8-valve FPT F34 Turbo intercooler engine with Common Rail electronic injection, the 75 Hp available guarantee excellent traction and high elasticity, enhanced by a torque of 375 Nm at 1,400 rpm, a performance normally seen from 100hp tractors. Extraordinary efficiency with time and money-saving advantages, since the maintenance intervals can be extended, whilst a special mention also goes to the 103-litre capacity fuel tank that easily lasts for a full day’s work.
X5.085 is Stage V approved, and uses EGR, DOC and DPF technology without SCR and without urea, this allowing a simple system installation in compliance with anti-pollution regulations whilst guaranteeing lower maintenance and operating costs.
Power and technology enhanced by versatility. Fitting as standard the 34” rear wheel, which not only guarantees increased ground clearance, but also improved traction that, combined with the excellent weight-power ratio (48kg/Hp), make the McCormick X5.085 suitable for transport also in mountain and hilly areas. The coupling with the M15 front loader controlled by a new dedicated ergonomic joystick is also an excellent new feature. The loader is designed so that its frame does not reduce ground clearance or limit the steering angle range of the tractor. It also works in a linear and even manner thanks to the suspension with 2 nitrogen-charged accumulators placed between the cylinders.
The front axle is compact in size, thanks to the 1590mm interflange, which makes the tractor neat and agile. Its sturdy construction makes it reliable and stable whatever the work, from the use of the front lifting system to the front loader and transport activities in fields and on the road.
Its power and agility are also enhanced by the category 2 mechanically-controlled rear lifting system with a capacity of 3,900 kg, which is precise and easy to use thanks to the ELS system (ergonomic lift system). The attachment of implements is quick and easy, as the controls are found both in the cab and on the fender. A 1,700 kg category 2 front lift system is also available as a further option.
The dual pump hydraulic circuit provides exceptionally efficient management of the 5 hydraulic spool valves (3 rear and 2 mid-mount) and the implements thanks to a pump flanged to the engine with a dedicated flow rate of 56 l/min, while 32 are directed to the steering system.
Finally, in line with the reputation of the brand, attention to driver comfort is also at the top of the list. In this case, the 4-post cab maximises the 360-degree all-round view and absorbs vibration thanks to 4 silent block suspensions, creating a protected working environment and impeccable sound insulation. The controls are also ergonomically arranged: a new concept joystick provides quick and easy control of transmission functions such as Hi-Lo and H-M-L, as well as the front loader with regard to automatic release, third and fourth functions. The steering wheel is adjustable in height and depth. The roof is lowered for easy entry into tight spaces and it also has a transparent roof hatch.
Road safety is guaranteed by the IBS (Integrated Brake System) system, which combines the rear brakes with the front oil-cooled brakes integrated within the axle, reducing the braking distance by 50%. The brakes engage in proportion to the effort applied to the pedals, allowing absolute braking accuracy.
To conclude, McCormick X5.085 is also designed to house the McCormick Fleet Management telematics monitoring system, to evaluate the efficiency of the tractor by measuring fuel consumption, working hours and scheduled maintenance; all this information is displayed in a web portal and an App that exploits user-friendly panels to provide useful information to owners to maximise the activity of their tractors.
