THE McCORMICK C-MAX
The McCormick C-Max (T3), equipped with either cab or platform, adds a new level of economic functionality to the McCormick line. With power ranging between 74 and 102 hp, these new four models place themselves just one step below the “CX” series, offering all the features required for this kind of tractors, but with a simpler, economy-driven design in comparison to the McCormick “CX” Series. Powered by the new, reliable 1104D Series Perkins Tier 3 engines – including two turbo aftercooled models – to match the rugged tractor design, the McCormick “C-Max” range combines excellent performance with maximum reliability. The key features of the range include a mechanical-controlled transmission with reverse power shuttle, powerful hydraulics for operating a mechanical hitch with a high lift capacity and 100% differential locks.
The C-MAX tractors are powered by a new range of advanced, environment-friendly engines that provide low emission levels in accordance with the Tier 3 standards. Specially designed for farming applications, the new Perkins 1104D are modern engines that provide state-of-the-art technology and solutions. The range comprises four models delivering the following power ratings: 74 hp (naturally aspirated), 83 hp (turbo), 92.5 and 102 hp (turbo aftercooled). These engines feature an advanced fuel injection system that optimises air-fuel mixture, thereby improving combustion and engine efficiency. Higher horsepower and torque with lower operating costs are thus achieved. The forward tilting hood provides easy access to the engine compartment for routine service and maintenance.
The modular standard transmission (Speed Four) provides 3 ranges and 4 speeds in each range, resulting in a total of 12 forward and 12 reverse speeds with mechanical synchro shuttle. The standard gearbox can be combined with either an underdrive (only for 2WD versions) or a creep option to provide 24 forward and 12 reverse gears with a maximum speed of 30 km/h. An overdrive option is also available for 4WD models to provide 24+12 gears with 40 km/h maximum speed. The synchro shuttle lever is conveniently located to the driver’s left to enable easy direction changes. The same lever can be used to alternately engage the underdrive, creep or overdrive option.
