The McCormick X50: 88 - 113hp

An exciting new additionto the McCormick line up.  the model line up includes:

  • X50.20  88hp (95hp boosted)
  • X50.30  95hp (102hp boosted)
  • X50.40  105hp (113hp boosted)
  • X50.50  113hp (No boost)

Styling and General Layout

The tractor feature’s new styling that will be used across the McCormick family as each new family model is introduced.  The clean design and wide opening bonnet allows maximum air flow to the radiator as well as unobstructed access to the engine and its routine service points.


All versions are powered by the Perkins 854 which has been developed to meet future emission standards. The Common Rail fuel injection system ensures outstanding performance, easy starting in colder climates and the efficient cooling package handles hot ambient temperatures. Fuel economy is also impressive partially assisted by the low losses within the transmission.

How does the engine meet emissions?

In simple terms a filtration system catches the soot particles which are the harmful particulates generated during the combustion cycle.  These are trapped within the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF).

During normal engine operation these soot particles are gradually re-burnt and expelled from the filter.  However the passive regeneration may not always keep up with the soot accumulation due to the operating cycles and load demands. The engine ECU monitors one or more sensors that measure back pressure and/or temperature, and based on pre-programmed set points the ECU makes decisions on when to activate the regeneration cycle.

The regeneration cycle has no overall effect on engine performance, during this cycle exhaust gases are heated to very high temperatures over the DOC diesel oxidisation catalyst and as they pass through the DPF it neutralises the soot and expels it via the exhaust.


The standard transmission with the 3 speed powershift has ample working speeds slowest speed in1st gear 1.4 km/hr. For specialised tasks a 48 x 16 creeper is available providing a minimum speed of 290 metres per hour at rated engine speed.

The four speed synchromesh gear lever incorporates the 3 speed powershift button as well as the De Clutch button which can be used to shift through the four speeds without using the foot clutch.


The SMC control allows the operator to adjust the time/ reaction of the both the forward/reverse shuttle and the clutch pedal behaviour.

This control will help the operator achieve precise clutch control if required or a faster shuttle behaviour.  As the dial is operated a digital % display is momentarily shown on the instrument cluster.

The PTO driveline has excellent efficiency with the PTO clutch mounted at the rear of the transmission making service access if required very easy.

The output system may be a two speed 540/750 or 540/1000.  Or by special request a three speed 540/750/1000.

The PTO stub shaft is held in place with a circlip and can be exchanged between a 6 or 21 spline shaft without loss of oil, this gives total versatility of PTO driven equipment.



The front axle provides an excellent turning angle to maximise manoeuvrability and also incorporates front disc brakes, this increases safety and reduces stress on the rear brakes. The front differential is 100% locking that automatically engages when the rear differential is operated. Front fenders when fitted are the pivot type which ensures they do not restrict the turning capability of the axle. The wide track front axle gives the tractor good stability as well as reducing stress loads when running at wider track settings


Wet multi disc brakes are used in the rear axles with 5 discs each side.  The brakes ensure positive stopping and the same discs are used for the parking brake via a traditional handbrake lever. Hydraulic trailer braking is also fitted as standard.


The X50 range all feature “Bosch“ lower link electronic draft control.  The system also has ride control which reduces the shock loadings when carrying a mounted implement such as a mower or plough.

The telescopic Auto Pickup hitch is standard equipment and offers excellent visibility and ground clearance. The rugged three point linkage has a maximum lift of 4750kg and handles all equipment comfortably.

Operator Comfort

The X50 cab offers excellent comfort and vision for the operator; the wide opening doors allow easy access to the cab.  Inside, the heating and ventilation system keeps the environment to the operator’s desired temperature; a roof window provides upward visibility for loader operations.

Telescopic mirrors, wide rear fenders plus the neatly styled lighting package all make the tractors specification very competitive in today’s market place.
