C105 Max
















The latest generation of Perkins 1103 and 1104

engines not only meet Stage 2 Tier II emission levels,
but also runs quieter.
Cold starting capabilities were also optimised to
ensure power and performance in the harshest of

500 hours

The cross-flow cylinder head means the intake

and exhaust manifolds are on the opposite sides
ensuring no pre-heating of the inlet air.
The combustion process is more efficient as the
inlet air is cooler.
5-hole injectors promote fuel atomisation, fuel
combustion, engine performance and fuel
Other improvements to the new engine include a
sump edge moulded carrier gasket which has
greatly reduced the possibilities of any oil leaks.
Integral oil cooler
The engine oil cooler his located in the left hand
side the cylinder block. This eliminates the need
for pipes and not only reduces the risk of leakage,
but also enhances the cooling capabilities.
Improved efficiency and no maintenance

The gear tooth manufacturing process has been enhanced in which the gear to gear contact is
tighter. This results in less backlash and noise.
The noise in this area is further reduced with the introduction of a new two-piece pressed steel
timing cover plate.
A rotary type injection pump is used on both 3 and
4 cylinder models.
All fuel system components are located on the lefthand side of the engine ensuring a compact fuel
delivery circuit.
The self-venting pumps prevent the need for
the operator to bleed the fuel system.

Fuel tank
A large 102-litre fuel tank, that can be filled from
ground level, sits neatly in front of the operator
A torque limiting filler cap eliminates potential over
tightening and damage by the operator.

Cooling system
All models are fitted with a water pump that is gear driven from the timing gears and allows the
pump and the fan to work at their optimum speeds.
A higher volume water flow rate and a fast viscous fan provide optimum cooling to
ensure efficient engine performance.
Exhaust system
Two types of exhaust systems are fitted.
A) ROPS. A vertical pipe through the hoodsheet
with the muffler located on top of the engine. The
hood can be lifted without removing the pipe
B) CAB. A post mounted exhaust for improved
visibility and allows full opening front screen.

Engine oil filter

The spin-on engine oil filter is easy to remove and
should be changed at 500 hour service intervals.
Longer servicing intervals.

Transmission options
The following transmission options are available and are subject to local market legislation.

Synchro Shuttle transmission 12F x 12R (30 km/h)

Synchro Shuttle transmission with Overdrive 24F x 12R (40 km/h)
Synchro Shuttle transmission with Creep 24F x 12R (30 km/h)

There are 3 transmission options which allow the choice of specifying 40km/h or a creeper
transmission for specialist operations.
The 40km/h transmission includes a mechanical overdrive gear splitter which doubles the
number of gears from 12 to 24.
There is no power shuttle or powershift function available with this range of tractors.
Operating controls
The gear levers are conveniently located to
allow safe and easy access to the operator

There are three transmission controls.

A) Synchro Shuttle. (Incorporates options)
B) Speed lever.
C) Range lever. (Non-synchronised)

Main drive clutch

All models are fitted with a dual plate clutch.
Clutch plate diameters are:
C60 Max = 11 inch (275.8 mm)
C75 / 85 Max = 11 inch (275.8 mm)
Optional 12 inch (304.8 mm)
C95 / C105 Max = 12 inch (304.8 mm)
The drive plates are made of a very
hardwearing cerametalic material for a long life.
The PTO drive clutch is incorporated into the
main drive clutch housing and also uses a
cerametalic drive plate.
PTO clutch engagement is totally independent
to the main drive clutch.
The tractor design allows for easy splitting at
the clutch housing should the clutch need

Synchronised Shuttle
All the transmission options have as standard a
synchronised shuttle to ensure easy operation
of directional change. The clutch pedal is
depressed and the lever is simply moved into
the required position.
The shuttle lever incorporates a neutral
position, ideal for operations that require
periodic pauses.
If the tractor is fitted with either an overdrive or
creep transmission, selection is also made
using this lever.

Creep speed can be engaged for specialised operations and reduces the standard speeds by
80% allowing travel speeds to go as low as 300 metres per hour at rated engine rpm.
This transmission option provides a mechanical splitter which gives an increase of 20% in
relation to the equivalent standard forward gear. This option allows 40km/h to be achieved.

Range lever
The three-positioned range lever is located to
the side of the speed lever.
This lever is a non-synchronised change and
should be carried out when the tractor is

Differential lock
The front and rear differential locks are 100%
locking and are simultaneously engaged by
simply pressing the switch on the steering
column. The easy operation encourages
engagement when field conditions dictate that
extra traction is required.
Disengagement of the diff locks are achieved
by pressing one or both of the brake pedals.
Positive no slip locking

The PTO system is independently operated using
an engagement lever located on the right-hand
side of the steering column.
It is recommended that when the PTO is not
required, the engagement lever remains in the
engaged position and the drive to the rear shaft is
disconnected using the selection lever.

Selection lever
Ground speed PTO is standard on all models.
The selection of independent or ground speed
PTO is carried out using the lever on the left-hand
side of the seat.
Ground speed PTO is useful with PTO driven
trailers, sprayers and other implements where it is
important to keep a proportional PTO to forward
Depending on the PTO speed selected, the
ground speed ratio is shown in the chart

Working in conjunction with the rear brakes, the CMax Series has a front axle IBS system fitted on
all the 4WD models as standard.
The Integral Braking System incorporates 4 wet
discs (2 per side) within the front axle housing.
NOTE: A non-braking front axle will be made
available for markets outside the EU.
The hydrostatic steering is a self-contained system which has its own dedicated pump that
provides 20.5 L/min and oil reservoir.
Effortless steering with no oil starvation of the hydraulic system.
Optional front fenders
Tight-turn swivel front fenders are available as an option on all models. These fenders do not
restrict the turning capability of the tractor, unlike fixed types.

The rear brakes are wet oil-cooled multi-disc
and are hydraulically operated.
The brake pedals are pendant type with low
pedal effort and can be locked together for
roadwork or independently for improved field
The system has its own brake reservoir located
under the hoodsheet. A visual check alerts the

and remote valves.
Quick and easy removal reduces downtime
and cost.

Hitch sensing
The draft sensing is transmitted through the top
link via the top link bracket and linkage rod to
the hitch control valve.
The draft forces a tractor has to endure can fluctuate greatly by the different type of equipment
that is used. The hitch system can be set to compensate for this allowing the operator to get the
best out of the tractor in terms of performance and economy.
There are two top link mounting holes in the top link bracket. The top hole increases sensitivity
whilst the bottom hole decreases it. It is recommended that with most equipment the top hole is


Hitch operation
Operation and setting of the hitch control is
simple with only two main control levers.

A) Main control lever

B) Mode setting control
A) The main control lever is used to set the
position of the linkage when working in either
position or draft control. The raising and
lowering of the equipment is carried out using
this lever. There is an adjustable quadrant stop
which allows the lever to quickly return to the
correct working setting.
B) The mode setting control sets the system to
operate in Position, Draft, Intermix.
Moving the control dial fully forward sets full
draft control. Fully rearward sets full position
Intermix. This gives the system the ability to set the hitch control to suit the soil conditions and
implement type. For more draft sensitivity, the dial should be set towards the full draft setting.
For less draft sensitivity, the dial should be set towards the full position setting. For equal mix
the dial should be set in the middle.
Simple, reliable, accurate mechanical hitch control.

Hitch linkage
The linkage can be fitted with the following link ends.
Fixed ball ends
Claw or quick detach ends
The linkage is Category II standard.
The stabilisers are telescopic to not only hold the
lower links in position, but also allow movement
when in work.


Assistor rams (Optional)

To meet the demands of heavier three-point hitch mounted equipment all models may be
equipped with additional assistor rams to increase the lift capacity.
Either single or twin assistor rams may be fitted as a factory option.
Excellent lifting capabilities allow a greater range of equipment to be fitted.
Remote valves
All models are specified with one valve as
standard. There is the possibility to fit a 2nd
valve if required.
These valves are available in various
Convertible. Single to double acting with
lever sprung loaded to neutral
