One year on from the launch of the MXU MAXXUM X Line tractors,
Case IH is adding a fourth model to the range, the 131hp MXU130X
to provide customers with even more power yet retaining the straightforward
operation that has made the range a success.
CASE IH MXU130X
"The MAXXUM X Line is a robust, easy-to-maintain tractor
for the livestock or mixed farmer. For this customer the priority
is for a versatile, fuel-efficient and cost-effective machine.
The MXU130X is a natural extension to the line-up, providing excellent
engine torque characteristics and more power for those wishing
to undertake demanding PTO and draft work," explains Charles
Blessley, Case IH marketing manager.
The MXU130X certainly has all the right credentials, including
electronic hitch control, a powerful six-cylinder engine, high
capacity hydraulics and a choice of standard or low-profile cabs.
Electronic Hitch Control from lower link sensing makes ploughing
easy on the operator, and increases the scope and adaptability
of the MXU X Line for farmers or contractors requiring a stronger
arable capability. This feature is standard on the MXU130X and
has become available across the rest of the range.
As with the 101hp MXU100X, 112hp MXU110X and 116hp MXU115X, the
MXU130X has a Tier II turbo-diesel engine, with two valves per
cylinder and a mechanical fuel injection system to ensure an efficient
supply of power is always available. This is married to a choice
of proven transmissions, a 16 x 16 four-speed semi-powershift with
powershuttle or, on the lower horsepower models, a 24 x 24 two-speed
powershift with powershuttle for smooth control and flexibility.
Simple to use and easy to maintain, the MXU130X requires minimum
operator training yet is designed for a wide range of applications,
providing PTO speeds of 540, 540 economy and 1000 rpm at the rear.
A dedicated hydraulic pump for steering ensures high work rates
are maintained for all services at all times while a separate 63l/min
hydraulic pump services three remote valves and the three-point
linkage. For loader applications, there are an additional two mid-mounted
valves and a seat-mounted joystick to control the Case IH LRX loader.
With many customers specifying the LRX front loader from new,
good visibility all-round is essential. This is provided by the
class-leading Case IH Surround Vision cab, in either standard or
low-profile format, featuring a roof-top loader window, creating
a light, open environment that is quiet and comfortable.
Tractors fitted with the low profile cab, in conjunction with
a shorter exhaust pipe, have their overall height reduced by 150mm
compared to those fitted with the standard cab, providing better
access to traditional farm buildings.
The MXU130X embodies Case IH core strengths of power and reliability
in a package that combines high productivity with a low cost of
MXU MAXXUM X Line:
Model kW (hp) Cyl
/ Valves/ Aspiration
MXU100X 74 (101) 4 / 8 / T
