McCormick Introduces XTX Series Tractors

McCormick International USA introduces the new six-cylinder McCormick XTX Series - the XTX185, XTX200, and XTX215 - ranging from 173 to 202 engine hp. This series replaces the current MTX models - the MTX165, MTX185, and MTX200.

The McCormick XTX models feature a new transmission with eight-speed power shift and power range shift option, a new transaxle delivering increased lift capacity and improved PTO geometry, the option of electronic control of all hydraulic functions for the first time, and a new four-post cab.

The XTX185 and XTX200 models feature six-cylinder, 6.7-liter turbo-charged BetaPower engines, along with the latest design of electronic common-rail fuel injection to produce power efficiently. The XTX215 model has an electronically controlled fuel system that features a 5.9-liter turbo-charged Cummins QSB engine.

The XTX Series engines have an electronic power boost feature that releases more muscle when working in difficult conditions. Engine output of the XTX185 can reach 198 hp, while the XTX200 has up to 213 hp and the XTX215 can reach 228 hp. Boosted PTO output will range from 165 to 200 PTO hp. The McCormick XTX185 and XTX200 models have 30 percent more implement lift than the models they replaced. They now match the top model, the XTX215, which has a maximum lift of 24,140 pounds at link ends.

The externally mounted cylinders and Category III lift arms are mounted on a new transaxle housing. A key feature of the new housing is that the PTO stub shaft is positioned six inches higher than before, improving PTO shaft geometry when powering large PTO implements. The McCormick XTX Series introduces a new cab with full-size rear-hinged doors filling both sides of the four-post structure. Eliminating the side posts improves left and right visibility, while the large doors make it easy to get in and out.
