n The McCormick X6.440 VT-Drive is one
of the few 130-140hp tractors available
with a CVT transmission.
flexibility, plus the added security of
exhaust pressure braking to ease the load
on service brakes, especially travelling
with a heavy trailer, tanker or spreader.
The tractors working at ScotGrass
will illustrate the full-feature Premium
specification, which includes a 12in
terminal and electric spool valve switches
on the armrest console, and the simpler
efficient spec for operators who want the
same powertrain but are content with fewer
electronic features.
A VT-Drive transmission in the McCormick
X6.440 being worked at ScotGrass makes
this one of the few 140hp tractors available
with a stepless drive system – the sort of
technology normally seen on larger, more
powerful machines.
It is an ideal choice for operating grass
equipment such as SIP’s Star twin rotor
centre delivery rakes, including the Star
850/26T destined for Scotgrass with its
hydraulically-adjustable 7.2m to 8.5m
working width.
This is because the ideal ground speed
can be set for output balanced with being
gentle to the crop; and no gear changes are
needed when working on banky ground
because the powertrain simply adjusts
itself to handle the changing load.
The McCormick X6.440 VT-Drive has
130hp for draft work rising to 140hp for
pto-driven implements and transport
applications, and four-speed rear pto with
‘power’ and ‘economy’ gearing.
The 110-litre/min piston pump is
dedicated to the rear linkage and remote
services, which can have mechanical
valves, a combination of mechanical and
electric or five all-electric valves set up
through a touch screen terminal.

steel racks on the front and rear, and new
rear shock springs.
The Sportsman 570 EPS Black Edition
features black 12-inch aluminium rims,
matching the black design, as well as a
premium LCD gauge. It is also fitted with a
fully-integrated Polaris Heavy-Duty 2,500lb
winch as standard, and has an Electric
Braking System (EBS) for more control on
descents or when pulling heavy loads.
In addition to the two Special Edition
models, Polaris has also revealed brandnew colour options on the Sportsman
line-up for this year; the Sportsman 570
now comes in White Lightning, whilst
the Sportsman 570 EPS is also now
