Wanting to get a tractor to do food plots with. Guy is wanting to sell me a 2018 McCormick X1.35 4x4 with FEL with only 24 hours on it for 16K. Great price but I only know of one guy with a McCormick tractor. I did talk to him and he said he has only changed 3 sensors in 15 years on his and he has 4000+ hours on it. His is about 120 HP. Any of you guys have any knowledge of this brand of tractor? Thanks.

Said he had hit some financial problems but has it listed today as willing to trade on one with a 60" belly mower. A new 2019 model like it is listed around 24K. It has the shuttle shift transmission.

I own a McCormick tractor. I don’t recommend them. Here’s why.

McCormick had a forward thinking CEO that saw a great market in compact tractors. They built some excellent machines that were built like tanks. They were just as solid as Kubota but 20% lower in price. I got an X.10-55 with an FEL.

Five years ago the CEO was gone and the Italians took over. They killed off the compact tractor line.

Last year I needed a clutch for my 55. I called everywhere. Nobody had parts. The McCormick dealers were useless and blamed the company for not supporting their previous tractor lines.

I had to go all the way to Fn Korea to find a clutch. Was told it would take 4 months. Totally unacceptable. I ended up matching the part number with a Similar Kioti clutch and crossed my fingers. Luckily it worked and I got my tractor back after 6 weeks.

Things break on tractors. And if a company can’t reliably support the machine after just a few years after the sale, look elsewhere.

I do like the machine and it’s well made. But I live in fear of breaking it and no part will be available. Unacceptable.

That is the main reason I have held off on this tractor. There is one dealer about 60miles away and they aren't that common so I would assume they don't keep a supply of parts on hand. Thanks for the info guys.
