McCormick’s first CVT now in UK

The stepless X7 VT Drive tractors from McCormick have started arriving in the UK. There is a trio of four-pot tractors spanning 143-166hp and two six cylinder models (165hp and 177hp) which can be fitted with the ZF sourced Terramatic transmission instead of the semi-powershift ‘box.

“As with the Pro Drive transmission, a clear objective was to make the new VT Drive system easy and intuitive to use while still providing the features that make CVT so attractive,” says product specialist, Paul Wade. “A driver new to this type of transmission can jump in the seat and drive away safely and confidently with just a few minutes’ instruction; but time spent in the seat will be rewarded by an understanding of the more sophisticated features that make the most of the new transmission.”

The VT Drive spec tractors come with a 12in touchscreen colour display allowing the operator to set transmission, engine, pto and hydraulic parameters. It can also be made ISObus compatible and have integrated auto steer.

The transmission can be operated in pedal mode and has an auto-hold function. There are also manual and cruise options for operating the transmission.
