WO examples of the most powerful
tractor in the McCormick X7 Series
will be in action at this year’s
ScotGrass event alongside the midrange high-tech X6.4 with stepless
VT-Drive transmission.
They will be seen working at the AEAorganised event near Dumfries on May
15 with mowing, tedding and raking
equipment from the newly-introduced SIP
range, including a unique combination of
front-mounted and trailed machines for
gathering spread grass or multiple swaths
into a single row.
“It’s the perfect opportunity for the
flagship McCormick X7 Series tractors to
be seen working at ScotGrass for the first
time because obvious applications for the
tractor include working a triple mower or
large forage wagon,” says Adrian Winnett,
managing director of Argo Tractors
operations in the UK and Ireland.
“We’re also pleased to be co-operating
with Martin Holden of SIP because it
underscores our focus on tractors as the
core area of expertise for the Argo Group,
which leaves McCormick tractor dealers
free to choose whichever grass and other
implement franchises best suit them and
their customers.”
The latest-generation McCormick X7
Series tractors have revised engine power
outputs with ‘boost’ now available on all
Grizzly WrapMaster hits Irish market
AOIS based machinery dealership
Bailey Machinery Sales Ltd (BMS)
has just launched the all new Grizzly
WrapMaster into the Irish market ahead of
this year’s baling and wrapping campaign.
The concept of the WrapMaster is the
brainchild of UK agri contractor and
engineer Joe Grills who designed the
WrapMaster to meet the demands of
modern bailing contractors for increased
capacity of wrap and net.
“I initially started by designing and
manufacturing a unit for our local
contractor who wanted to increase their
capacity with the baling operation. They
were so happy with how the WrapMaster
preformed they now run two units.
Customers are constantly looking to
carry more wrap and net with them which
allows them to continue working without
unnecessary downtime having to restock
net and wrap which often means travelling
away from the work field,” explains Joe.
The unit itself is manufactured from
heavy duty 80x80x5mm box section and
10mm plate for increased strength which
is vital for modern day contracting. To
keep the wrap secure there are 70mm
tubes fitted to the top frame ranging in
capacities from 8-22 along with ether a
single or double net carrier attachment.
For added ease of use the entire top frame
folds hydraulically thanks to the help of a
70x30mm double acting ram allowing the
operator to remove the rolls easily and
more importantly safely.
Finishing off the unit, it can be painted in
models for pto-driven implements and road
The line-up starts at 141hp (boosting
to 150hp) with the four-cylinder X7.440
introduced this year and tops out with the
205/225hp six-cylinder X7.690, which is a
more powerful addition to the range.
All feature the new P6-Drive transmission
with six powershift steps and five ranges
any combination of 2 Pac paint as well as
featuring full LED lighting as standard for
added safety when travelling on the road.
Optional extras include a crop press roller,
‘A’ frame attachment, strobe lights, work
lights, etc.
Speaking about the new launch, BMS
director Darren Bailey commented: “At
BMS we are constantly on the lookout for
quality products that help our customers
become more productive and profitable
into the future. The Grizzly WrapMaster
does just that, we are excited to introduce
them to the Irish market and look forward
to seeing them in operation around the
country in 2019.”

Working debut for new John Deere forager at ScotGrass 2019
OHN Deere’s new 9000
Series self-propelled forage
harvester will be making
its UK show working debut at
ScotGrass 2019 in Dumfries in
May. It will be demonstrated
alongside the company’s latest
wrapping baler and 6R Series
CommandPRO tractor.
The 9000 Series combines new
forage harvesting technology
with several efficiency enhancing
developments to form the basis
of John Deere’s HarvestMotion
concept, which significantly increases throughput and enables
industry leading fuel economy.
Performance improvements of
up to 10 per cent have been
verified through numerous field
tests conducted by both John
Deere and several independent
research institutes.
There are four models in the
PICK-UP: A new John Deere
9700i self-propelled forage
harvester equipped with the 639
Premium 3m grass pick-up.
series from 625 to 970hp, with the
flagship 9900 powered by a new
24.2-litre V12 Liebherr engine
with striking twin exhausts.
This provides oustanding torque
capacity and copes easily with
peak loads at lower engine
speeds, even beneath 1400rpm.
The large crop channel width of
850mm is designed to handle the
foragers’ higher throughput, to
ensure the best possible forage
quality and chopping efficiency.
John Deere has also extended
its range of kernel processors
by introducing the XStream KP
model for the 9000 Series range.
This high performance processor
has been developed together
with the US based company
Scherer, an experienced leader
in kernel processor technology,
and increases processing intensity by 10 per cent at all
cutting lengths.
Kernel processor rolls are
available with a standard
sawtooth design on the Premium
KP unit, and either the sawtooth
or a new XCut design on the
XStream KP, which features a
spiral cut groove across the roll
surface. Both roll designs are
also available with the proven
Dura Line heavy-duty coating for
increased durability. The kernel
processor can be removed in just
five minutes for quick changes
between maize and grass.
The new 9000 Series selfpropelled forage harvesters are
also available with John Deere’s
complete range of AMS precision
farming systems, for improved
operator comfort and cutting
quality. These include AutoTrac
automatic steering and the latest
HarvestLab 3000 near infrared
constituent sensing system with
AutoLOC automatic length-ofcut settings and silage additive
dosing on the move, based on
dry matter content.
The same sensor system can
be used in stationary mode for
analysing clamp silage in order
to manage feed rations more
accurately, and for analysing the
constituents in manure (eg, N,
NH4, P & K) when operating a
slurry tanker.
