McCormick’s T-MAX utility tractors
McCormick USA 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, including the T 90 MAX, T100 MAX and T110 MAX offering 83 to 102 engine (70.5 to 86.5 PTO) 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.”
Power to the max
The heart of the T-MAX Series is the 4-cylinder Perkins 1104D Tier 3 compliant diesel engine. The design allows the air and the fuel to mix at the greatest possible extent to help ensure better combustion and efficiency, resulting in higher power and torque backup with reduced running costs. The T 90 MAX features a turbocharged 83 horsepower engine while the T 100 MAX and T110 MAX (92.5 and 102 horsepower respectively) use a turbocharged after-cooled engine.
A forward-tilting hood provides easy access to the engine compartment for routine service and maintenance.
Multiple transmission options
A synchromesh transmission features four speeds in three ranges to provide an infinite number of speeds to match the task at hand. The basic 12+12 transmission offers a mechanical reverse shuttle and a factory-installed creeper option, which expands operator flexibility to 16 forward and reverse speeds.
Additional flexibility is attained with a power shuttle transmission that provides 36 forward and 12 reverse speeds and allows the operator to change direction (forward to reverse) via a lever integrated into the steering column, without using the clutch pedal. The power shuttle transmission is also equipped with a de-clutch system, allowing the operator to change mechanical gears simply by depressing a button placed on the gearshift lever without using the clutch pedal. A factory-installed creeper is available, which expands the transmission to 48 forward and 16 reverse speeds.
