Duluth, GA (April 28, 2011) – McCormick USA, a leading distributor of agriculture, utility, rural lifestyle and specialty tractors, are proud to announce the new and innovative lineup of the X10 Series compact and utility tractors. With models ranging from 22 to 91 hp, the X10 Series is designed to meet a wide variety of applications, and are a result of an OEM agreement between parent company Argo Tractors and Korean manufacturer, Daedong.
“The new McCormick X10 Series tractors represent a key addition to McCormick USA’s product portfolio, says Doug Rehor, CEO, McCormick USA. These are great tractors, and seeing them in traditional McCormick red has generated a lot of excitement throughout our dealer network.”
The X10 tractors compliment McCormick USA’s existing agriculture and utility tractors up to 213 hp. Dealers now have an all-McCormick solution for the landscaper, hobby farmer and hunter, all the way through dairy, livestock, hay and forage, heavy chore, and row-crop applications, continues Rehor.
Optimum style, power and performance
With a one piece sloping hood and contoured fenders the X10 Series tractors are stylish machines that are powered to the max. With water-cooled, Daedong 3 and 4 cylinder indirect injected diesel engines and Perkins 4 cylinder turbo-charged engines on the two largest models, the X10 tractors will provide plenty of power and performance for all around tractor needs.
Exceptional hydraulic and lift power
The Hydrostatic transmission allows the operator convenience of selecting variable speeds without having to depress a clutch or shift gears. It’s as simple as selecting the range then depress the forward / reverse pedal to obtain the desired speed. Once the speed is set, cruise control can be engaged, to maintain the desired speed.
The responsive tractor hydraulics makes it easy to precisely operate the front end loader and 3-point hitch. Smooth and powerful hydraulics helps get the job done faster by precisely placing the loader or implement at the desired height.
On hydrostatic drive units, two separate hydraulic systems keep tractor hydraulics isolated from the transmission hydraulics. This protects the hydrostatic transmission from being contaminated, thus ensuring long life on the transmission. With hydraulic power steering it is easy to turn the steering wheel, even under the heavy loads encountered when the loader bucket is full.
The X10 Series offers a high quality, adjustable, suspension seat that maintains operator comfort for long hours of work while minimizing operator fatigue. It’s easy to operate an X10 Series compact tractor. Integrated joystick design and logical control placement keeps the operator focused and safe. The fully retractable seatbelt assures operator safety. All instrumentation on the interior is placed in a logical position as well as provides an easy view for the operator for optimum efficiency.
At a glance, the operator can check the engine RPM, temperature and fuel level. The electronic hour meter accurately records the working hours of the tractor.
Rehor emphasizes that this is not just a new compact line. In addition to cab and ROPS tractors with manual and hydrostatic transmissions in the 22 to 55 hp segment, the new X10.75 and the X10.90 utility tractors represent a high-value, lower cost compliment to our high-performance utility tractors in the 70-90 hp range. Having a choice to match the great variety of markets and applications will strengthen our ability to meet the needs of our dealers, continues Rehor.
As with all McCormick and Landini brand tractors offered in the U.S., the new X10 Series utility and compact tractors will pass through McCormick USA’s Duluth, GA light assembly facility for final assembly, quality check and shipment to a network of independent dealers located in nearly every state.
