THE McCORMICK T-MAX
The T-MAX series is midway between the C-MAX range, of which it inherits the cab and the wheel base. The front and rear field lights as well as the front grille have been newly conceived and feature a superb new look. The modular and versatile transmission is available with four synchronized gears and three mechanical speed ranges (SPEED FOUR) with hydraulically controlled oilbath multi-plate PTO as a basic version. The entry level 12+12 is available on both 30 km/h and 40 km/h versions and is combined with an intermediate 24 +12 version equipped with mechanical reverse shuttle and overdrive Synchro Shuttle versions. A substantial novelty is represented by the combination of the hydraulic reverse shuttle with the Powershift three-shift option ( H-M-L high-medium-low) which triples the gears of the basic transmission to achieve 36 forward + 12 reverse speeds. Power Shuttle versions. A creep transmission is available as an option on both Synchro and Power Shuttle versions.
The new Perkins 1104D engines fitted on the T-MAX Series have been purposely designed for agricultural use. They feature a modern conception and avant-garde technical solutions. A new range of environment-friendly engines complying with the new specifications governing low fumes emissions as dictated by the current Tier III standards. The new Perkins engines fitted on the T-MAX series are available in the following power ratings: 74 HP (aspirated), 83 HP (Turbocharged), 92,5, 102 and 110,2 HP/ISO (turbo-after-cooled). Thanks to particular technological innovations the air and the fuel are mixed to the greatest possible extent thus ensuring better combustion and efficiency, higher power and high torque backup with low running costs and respect for the environment. The forward tilting hood provides easy access to the engine compartment for routine service and maintenance.
THE POWER SHUTTLE VERSION FEATURES A BASIC GEARBOX (SPEED 4) WITH SPEEDS AND 3 RANGES
The Power Shuttle version features a basic gearbox (Speed Four) with 4 speeds and 3 ranges, (controlled by the green pushbuttons integrated in the gearshift lever) which, iin conjunction with the Powershift module (3 H-M-L ranges under load) and the reverse shuttle provides 36 forward and 12 reverse speeds. A creeper is available as an option extending the flexibility to 48 FWD and 16REV speeds. The De-Clutch Control (orange pushbutton integrated in the gearshift lever) and the Reverse Power Shuttle (hydraulic reverse shuttle with lever integrated in the steering column) allow the operator to change gear and shift from forward to reverse without using the clutch pedal.
