XTRACTOR, SOUTH AFRICA MISSION
The new “Xtractor Around the World” adventure across South Africa has begun.
4 powerful McCormick tractors and 6 support vehicles left Cape Town on April 3rd. This is the beginning of a long trip: the convoy will be crossing the great South African national parks and the endless expanses of vineyards in the Winelands, finally climbing the extensive mountain range of Drakensberg in Lesotho, which soars to a height of 3,482 meters.
The initiative is also noteworthy for its humanitarian content: the convoy will be involved in the agricultural projects of the local communities encountered along the way.
Main players in this journey are top-of-the-line McCormick X7 and McCormick X8 tractors, produced by the historical brand whose name epitomises Italian quality, craftsmanship and innovative design.
Based on advanced technologies, these tractors offers enhanced reliability and performance, as well as adherence to the strictest environmental standards. Used to working in extreme conditions, they are ideally suited to the new adventure: travel 6.000 km in 55 days.
We are privileged to have some very special men and women driving Xtractor’s vehicles – Italian Carabinieri Forestali and I° Reggimento Tuscania.
Xtractor is a nature docu-reality by Roberto Pinelli and Luca Norris, produced by Id-Entity.
