McCormick is returning to the show circuit, displaying key models from its tractor range at this year’s Cereals Event (30 June/1 July). Headline machines will include the X8.680 VT, offering 310hp put through a CVT transmission, and the X7.624 VT machine, meeting the demands of the 200-250hp market with a CVT gearbox and full precision farming package.
Rounding out the company’s stand will be the 130hp McCormick X6.440 VT, again with CVT transmission, and the X6.55; a 93hp machine suited to the smaller tasks on arable farms.
“McCormick has been able to make some prominent dealer appointments over recent months, and alongside the advanced product offering we have developed this has helped to really boost awareness of the brand among larger arable farms,” said Ben Agar, business development director for McCormick distributor Argo Tractors UK & Ireland.
“We have the precision farming technology, transmission offering, build quality and back-up to match anything on the market. When added to our recent developments in areas such as telematics, fleet management and remote diagnostics to allow farmers and dealers to monitor machines, plus up to five years’ manufacturers warranty, the development of our UK parts warehouse, and the investment we’ve made in UK staff – 60% of whom are field-based to work directly with dealers and customers – our commitment to UK agriculture is clear. We are really looking forward to showcasing that further at Cereals 2021.”
