The real Maxxum?
Case IH MX120, This is one of the real maxxums. Screw the
new MXM's with the Maxxum badge on their bonnet. Not that I
have anything against New Holland but I really don't like
the MXM's. After the merger Case had so much talk about
common platforms and key differences between products. Well
they have really made fools of all the farmers who really
believed that.
What are the differences between the MXM's and the TM's.
Well different colour exterior, different color interior,
different bonnet, different roof, different foot pedals, a
different power shuttle lever and a different hand throttle.
That is pathetic. All those differences are just cosmetic
and not mechanical. So how can they talk about these new
MXM's been a redesigned Maxxum in the brochures when these
tractors bear absolutely no resemblance to the real Maxxums.
Case IH and New Holland did a good job of differentiating
the TG from the Magnum. Apart from cosmetic differences
there are differences in engine horsepower ratings, maximum
torque, torque rise figures, transmission software
differences, hydraulic capacity differences, different
length of wheelbase, a different turning radius and possibly
more differences. Overall then not bad.
What are the real Maxxum features that are missing from the
MXM's? Features that have defined the prevoius Maxxums?
1. For starters a class leading cab. The cab on the previous
MX Maxxums is a far superior cab to the outdated New Holland
cab. Its better laid out, better visibility, wider which
gives more space. The New Holland cab was launched in 1991
on the Ford 40 series. The Mx Maxxum cab was launched in
1997. Yet the so called new redesigned Maxxums have the
older 1991 cab.
2. A chassis design. This makes the tractor able to
withstand more torsional stress, especially with a front
loader or with front linkage. Its a feature that was on the
first Maxxums launched in 1989.
3. Cummins 5.9 litre engine. Why change to a different type
of engine when this engine was so successful in the Maxxum
since its introduction. It would be easier for owners on
previous Maxxums with the cummins engine to be able to work
on an engine that they are relatively familiar with in the
event of a breakdown. This change is all the more strange
when one considers that Case has a joint venture with
cummins to build engines.

I would like the MXM's if they had a new class leading cab,
a chassis design, cummins QSB5.9 litre engine (at least on
the smaller models) and possibly a redesigned front end with
the engine moved forward like on the Magnums. Then and only
then could they put the Maxxum badge on the bonnet.

Re: The real Maxxum?
Well, i think, this is the real Maxxum!
Someone in my Area uses a 5140 PRO (117 DIN-HP) with a
4meter Power Harrow and has a 4meter Drill mounted on it!
This is real POWER!
