When purchasing the perfect tractor for your daily farm tasks is a crucial decision to make. Choosing a tractor costs money. That's why it is crucial to make the right choice from the get-go. And Northeast AG thinks that one of the best brands you could start with your tractor journey is McCormick.
It all began in 1831, when Cyrus McCormick designed a harvester model then launched a factory in Chicago in 1847 to produce machines for the coming harvest.
1902- financier J.P. Morgan partnered up with McCormick and Deering Harvester Company. During the summer of 1906, they unveiled one of the first tractors with a horsepower of 10 to 20. In addition, this marked the beginning of the International Harvester Company of Great Britain, which mainly served as an importer until 1939.
Then in 1915, The International Harvester Company of Great Britain acquired the Wheatley Hall site located in Doncaster. This is also the site where the McCormick headquarters will rise.
And finally, in 1949, the production line in Doncaster began. The first McCormick Farmall M comes off the assembly line on the 13th of September.
The brand's success continuously followed because, in 1951, tractor production began in St. Dizier, France - with the assembly of the FC Farmall model. Excellence continued with the launch of the World Wide Range in 1970- complete with synchronised transmission and offers optional hydrostatic transmissions.
Fast forward 30 years later, the McCormick brand and the Doncaster plant were acquired by the Argo Tractors Group. Including its intellectual property and expertise.
A new era started when the X7 series was launched-patterned from the original Argo tractors' design made its debut in Paris. Thus, the beginning of a new era.
Another award came in when the McCormick tractor X6.4 VT-Drive, developed by Argo Tractors, was recognised by the Tractor of the Year jury as the Best Utility tractor of 2018.
2017 is also the year that the McCormick dealer network with new branches opening in Spain, France in 2019, and Germany most recently in 2021.
Up until now, McCormick continues to provide top of the line performance with its range of tractors at the top of their class in terms of technology, comfort, and safety, and with all the strengths of its American origins.
