Tractor test

In January 2016

McCormick X7.460

Not a brand that’s ever been short on style, McCormick knows it needs more than a pretty face to secure its future. Test candidate this month is the firm’s 118kW/160PS X7.460.

Practical test

In January 2016

Kuhn Metris 4102 trailed sprayer

French giant Kuhn is a relatively new name in the highly competitive sprayer sector, where the configuration battle — mounted, trailed or self-propelled unit? — continues to rage. We test Kuhn’s main trailed option, the Metris.

Driving impression

In January 2016

Samson PGV 20 tanker

The choice of a vacuum pump or centrifugal pump, a 12m wide shallow injector and soil-friendly floatation running gear — the Samson PGV 20 tanker and TD 12 injector appears to have all the spec bases covered.

Case IH Optum tractor

Deere’s 7R and the Fendt 800 Vario have had it their own way in the mid-weight 300hp category for too long. That’s the view of CNH, hence the recent appearance of both the higher hp New Holland T7 and, driven here, Case IH’s new Optum line.

Used machinery

In January 2016

Polaris Ranger UTV
