A Real Outback ‘Tractor’!
Situated 44Km outside of Richmond QLD, on the banks of Cattle Creek is Rainscourt Station, a 55,000 acre cattle property belonging to the McCoy family.
For general duties around the property Michael McCoy wanted a tractor that could cover the distances quickly and have the strength and versatility to carry out the myriad of duties he requires this type of machine to do. In this instance, the unit was delivered with a 1.4m3 4-in-1 Loader Bucket, Pallet Forks, Bale Forks, Hydraulic Quick Hitches to Loader and Backhoe, General Purpose and Mud Backhoe Buckets and a Post Hole Borer. “I’ve tried many standard farm tractors, but for the work I need to do, I need something with the strength of Industrial Equipment, the 5CX is an ideal machine for my property, comfortable, quiet, versatile and, most importantly, tough enough for the hard jobs” said Michael.
The JCB 5CX Elite features a 6 Speed, 50Km/h Auto Powershift Transmission combined with the tried and tested JCB Dieselmax 4.4Ltr 100HP Turbocharged Engine. The modern cabin is designed with the operator in mind, with the JCB exclusive in-Seat Mounted Joystick Controls, Hydraulic Sideshift, Air Suspension Seat and even your own Coffee Maker! The 3 Mode Steering allows for great maneuverability in tight spaces and the Smooth Ride System allows for a comfortable journey time.
