McCormick unveils all-around utility tractor
McCormick (www.mccormickusa.com) has introduced a new line of utility tractors designed to meet the needs of material handling and general farming operations. The T-MAX Series features three models -- the T90 MAX, T100 MAX and T110 MAX -- which offer 83 to 102 engine horsepower.
"We designed the T-MAX Series with efficiency in mind," says Kurt Schenck, vice president of marketing for McCormick. "This tractor line has the power and flexibility to adapt to numerous tasks on the farm, such as light tillage, haying and loader work. It's an ideal chore tractor."
The heart of the T-MAX Series is the four-cylinder Perkins 1104D Tier 3 compliant diesel engine. This design allows the air and fuel to mix at the greatest possible extent to help ensure better combustion and efficiency, which results in higher power and torque backup with reduced running costs.
Other highlights include multiple transmission options, robust hydraulic and lift power, 2WD or 4WD, and the choice between an open-air platform or cab version.
"All in all the T-MAX Series gives customers the flexibility and power they need to get the job done," says Schenk. "It's the type of tractor every farm needs to tackle those everyday projects."
In addition, McCormick's Chief Executive Office, Doug Rehor, talks with Successful Farming about the future of the McCormick company and the opportunity they have to make a unique impact on the U.S. tractor market.
