The McCormick X5.085, a tractor from Argo Tractors group, is positioned between the X4 Stage V and the future X5 Stage V range, delivering a response to all user demands in farms and especially those in the hay business.
The features and performance are said to make it the perfect tractor for agile transport, front loader barn and shed work and light-duty open field work.
The 3.4-litre, 4-cylinder and 8-valve FPT F34 Turbo intercooler engine with Common Rail electronic injection, the 75 Hp available guarantee excellent traction and high elasticity, enhanced by a torque of 375 Nm at 1,400 rpm. Since the maintenance intervals can be extended and the 103-litre capacity fuel tank that lasts for a full day’s work, the tractor offers efficiency with time and money-saving advantages,
The X5.085 is Stage V approved, and uses EGR, DOC and DPF technology without SCR and without urea, allowing a simple system installation in compliance with anti-pollution regulations whilst providing lower maintenance and operating costs.
The standard 34” rear wheel, guaranteeing increased ground clearance, but also improved traction that, combined with the weight-power ratio (48kg/Hp), make the X5.085 suitable for transport also in mountain and hilly areas.
The X5.085 also sees with the new M15 front loader controlled by a new ergonomic joystick.The loader is designed so that its frame does not reduce ground clearance or limit the steering angle range of the tractor. It also works in a linear and even manner due to the suspension with 2 nitrogen-charged accumulators placed between the cylinders.
The 1590mm interflange, makes the front axle compact in size allowing the tractor to be neat and agile.
The power and agility are also enhanced by the category 2 mechanically-controlled rear lifting system with a capacity of 3,900 kg, which is said to be precise and easy to use thanks to the ELS system (ergonomic lift system). The attachment of implements is quick and easy, as the controls are found both in the cab and on the fender. A 1,700 kg category 2 front lift system is also available as a further option.
Equipped with a dual pump hydraulic circuit, the X5.085 provides efficient management of the 5 hydraulic spool valves (3 rear and 2 mid-mount) and the implements thanks to a pump flanged to the engine with a dedicated flow rate of 56 l/min, while 32 are directed to the steering system.
Finally, driver comfort. The 4-post cab maximises the 360-degree all-round view and absorbs vibration with the use of 4 silent block suspensions, creating a protected working environment and impeccable sound insulation. The controls are also ergonomically arranged: a new concept joystick provides quick and easy control of transmission functions such as Hi-Lo and H-M-L, as well as the front loader with regard to automatic release, third and fourth functions. The steering wheel is adjustable in height and depth and the roof is lowered for easy entry into tight spaces, equipped with a transparent roof hatch.
Road safety is addressed by the IBS (Integrated Brake System) system, which combines the rear brakes with the front oil-cooled brakes integrated within the axle, reducing the braking distance by 50%. The brakes engage in proportion to the effort applied to the pedals, allowing for braking accuracy.
The new McCormick X5.085 is also designed to house the McCormick Fleet Management telematics monitoring system, to monitor the efficiency of the tractor by measuring fuel consumption, working hours and scheduled maintenance; all this information is displayed in a web portal and an App with user-friendly panels to provide useful information to owners to maximise the activity of their tractors.
