The X60 series, launched overseas in 2011, is McCormick's technological evolution of the previous CX range.

Clark Equipment says the new tractors will be able to provide a performance that meets the professional users' requirements, with added comfort and an ultra-modern, aggressive look.

Models in the X60 range include the X60.20, X60.30, X60.40 and X60.50 and are suitable for a multitude of uses from light work to heavier duty open-field jobs. A higher ground clearance adds to the range's versatility.

Compared to the CX series, the new X60 range features a further two engine ratings which adds to the power of the tractors.

The X60.50 model features an electronically controlled Perkins 4-cylinder Turbo Aftercooler Common Rail engine which delivers a 112HP lugging power but can also supply 121 HP at the power take-off (PTO)and during transport work, reducing the engine rate at 40kph and consequently cutting down on fuel consumption.

Some main characteristics of the X60 range include the Power Shuttle transmission, featuring a basic 12-speed gearbox in conjunction with a hydraulic H-M-L that triplicates the ratios of the basic gearbox on load, and the hydraulic reverse shuttle for a total 36 FWD+12 REV speeds. The speeds can reach as many as 48 FWD+16 REV with the addition of the Creeper.

The electro-hydraulically controlled PTO is available on request with two speeds (540/750 or 540/1000) or three speeds. (540/750/1000)

Another innovative feature of the X60 range is the electronically controlled hydraulic reverse shuttle which allows the operator to modulate the action of the unit to suit the implement used.

The X60 series can be equipped with up to five control valves while the lifting capacity of the rear power lift is now up to 5,000 kg.

The braking capacity of the range has also been increased by installing booster brake pumps that achieve decelerations well below the valves required by the European standards.
