Massey Ferguson, a worldwide brand of AGCO (NYSE: AGCO), is proud to announce the release of its all-new, powerful and compact MF 6700 S Series. 

MF 6700 S features:

MF 6718 S is the world’s first four-cylinder agricultural tractor to deliver 200hp (with Engine Power Management (EPM) – creating a completely new power class 

Latest AGCO POWER four cylinder, 4.9 litre engine generates exceptional torque and maximum powers from 120hp to 175hp. Engine Power Management (EPM) increases power by up to 25hp on all models 

Maintenance-free, straightforward emissions systems improves efficiency to meet Tier 4 Final standards

Tightest turning radius on a 200hp agricultural tractor on the market today 

Compact chassis and short wheelbase with curved chassis and Integrated Front Linkage System (IFLS) combine maneuverability with strength and stability 

Unrivalled transmission choice includes Dyna-VT continuously variable transmission (available from 130hp) as well as award-winning Dyna-4 and Dyna-6 transmissions 

Versatile four-speed PTO with electrical speed selection 

A great lift capacity – up to 9,600kg to handle heavy implements 

A high hydraulic capability – up to 190 litres/min flow and the ability to use up to eight spool valves                                  

Integrated and factory-fitted front sub-frame for straightforward loader installation 

Ultimate operator environment with new active mechanical suspension, superb visibility, ergonomic control layout, colour dashboard and Set-up and Information Screen (SIS) 

Trelleborg Progressive Traction tyres are a unique factory-fit option that further boost productivity 

Straightforward Fuse Technologies including Auto-Guide 3000 guidance system with GO-Mode and AgCommand telemetry for full work monitoring.

Advanced engines deliver high power and optimum economy 

The MF 6700 S is powered by a new 4.9 litre, four-cylinder AGCO POWER engine, which delivers exceptional power and torque for high performance at lower engine speeds. 

The engine complies with the strict Stage IV (Tier 4 final) emission regulations using a maintenance free, Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) system with an electronic waste-gated turbocharger.

 The straightforward and compact design houses the catalyzers in an oval-shaped exhaust, and the DOC under the bonnet. There is no need for an additional, large cooling package ensuring the MF 6700 S tractors continue to offer superb visibility to the front and sides. 

Running costs are further reduced by the 600hr service intervals - 20% longer than previous designs.

Wide transmission choice 

For the first time, the continuously variable Dyna-VT is now available from the 130hp MF 6713 S model upwards. This delivers ultimate control and economy by providing precise regulation of forward speed, while minimizing the engine rpm ensuring the tractor always operates at optimum efficiency and economy. 

The latest Dyna-4 transmission now offers further efficiency providing 40 km/hr at engine speeds as low as 1,850rpm. 

Dyna-6 and Dyna-4 transmissions now provide an AutoDrive pedal mode. In the ‘Automatic’ setting this changes gears automatically, according to the engine load and speed. 

Power, agility and economy 

Built on a 2.67m wheelbase, the MF 6700 S tractors weigh 500kg less than equivalent six cylinder models. Coupled with powerful engines, this produces an unrivalled power to weight ratio that results in a light footprint and optimum economy. 

The MF 6718 S offers the tightest turns available from a 200hp agricultural tractor due to its compact design and sculpted front frame delivering a turning radius of just 4.75m, even when fitted with the Integrated Front Linkage System (IFLS). 

Massey Ferguson’s Speedsteer increases the steering ratio, minimizing the number of steering wheel turns needed to make a turn. This increases efficiency making headland turns faster and easier.

Powerful hydraulics to handle complex implements 

Hydraulics on the MF 6700 S range are designed to handle the demands of modern implements with ease, as well as providing the flow and power for fast, efficient loader operations. 

Flowrates of up to 190 litres/min are available from the load-sensing system, which delivers the capacity to control even the most complex implements.

 Up to five rear hydraulic valves can be specified on all Dyna-VT models, and all rear couplers are equipped with decompression levers, which make it faster and easier to connect-up machines. 

Front-mounted implements are catered for with up to two independent front hydraulic valves plus a dedicated front linkage valve. 

A new rear power beyond installation is ideal for high-tech hydraulically driven implements equipped with independent flow control valves, such as potato planters and sugar beet harvesters.

Powerful, modern rear linkage

Rear linkage lift capacity is up to 9,600kg on Dyna-VT models which handles heavier, high capacity implements with Massey Ferguson’s renowned electronic linkage control (ELC) providing easy operation. 

The ultimate loader tractor 

The compact dimensions, power, visibility and high hydraulic capacity make the MF 6700 S the perfect loader tractor, with the addition of the Visioline roof option offering an unrivalled view when loading at height. 

Massey Ferguson’s 900 front loader can now be specified with a “live third” service. A clever addition to the loader is the hydraulic control that enables the operator to use the third service and crowd an implement at the same time.

Excellent cab comfort 

The MF 6700 S is now equipped with a new active mechanical cab suspension, with Continuous Damping Control (CDC) for the ultimate comfort, both in the field and on the road.

This reduces heave/pitch and roll movements, reacting according to vehicle behavior to provide optimum comfort to match all terrains and conditions. 

Inside, the cabs include the same clear, colour dashboard as the range-topping MF 8700 as well as the new Set Up and Information System (SIS), which offers a fast and easy way to set and monitor machine functions. 

If you’re looking for a serious tractor you can’t look past the new Massey Ferguson 6700 S Series

Massey Ferguson 7700 Series Tractor Awarded

The newly released Massey Ferguson 7700 Series has taken the honors at Farm World 2016, awarded by the Tractor and Machinery Association (TMA) for Machine of the Year – Best Powered Machine, amongst a field of competitive tractors at the Lardner Park event held at Warragul.

MF 7700 Series tractors builds on the highly successful and award winning MF 7600 Series. The new range provides an outstanding choice of highly productive, straightforward and dependable tractors comprising innovative features which caught the attention of the TMA Judges.

A total of eight models offer maximum powers of 140hp to 255hp, providing a choice of three transmissions and two levels of specification. Engine Power Management (EPM), which provides up to 25hp extra power, is standard on all models taking maximum power to 270hp on the flagship MF 7726 model. 

Jared Hicks, TMA Judge and local machinery contractor, said there were a number of factors which gave the MF7700 the edge over the competition.  “Overall the MF7700 Series had a number of features which I thought were pretty good. The separate remote bank for the loader frees up the rear remotes for other implements while also allowing priority to the loader. The rear linkage maximum lift capacity is really quite good also at 9,950kg.”  “All round visibility for a tractor this size was also a feature that impressed and everything in the cabin is well laid out and comfortable. The tractor is also at a good price for the horsepower”, Jared says.

Attending Farm World on Behalf of AGCO Australia was John Horan, Massey Ferguson Product Manager who was pleased to accept the award as a confirmation of the MF 7700’s solid design and performance, which is the product of years of development at Massey Ferguson’s Beauvais facility in France.

“The MF 7700 has benefited from a proven pedigree established by the MF 7600 Series which won a number of awards including Machine of the Year, Tractor of the Year Golden Design Award as well as Gold Medals and numerous accolades across Europe. The MF 7700 Series is quickly earning a reputation for being powerful and versatile tractors that offer customers plenty of options in the mid to high horsepower categories.” John says.

Massey Ferguson has further refined this winning design and added new features that boost comfort and control, leading to even greater performance and productivity to further reduce overall ownership costs.

MF 7700 Series features

  • Latest technology six cylinder, 6.6 litre and 7.4 litre AGCO POWER engine, with Engine Power Management (EPM) generating 25hp extra power on all models
  • Unrivalled choice of Dyna-4, Dyna-6 semi-powershift or Dyna-VT continuously variable transmission (depending on model)
  • Electronic PTO speed selection on all Efficient and Exclusive models
  • High capacity – Permissible Gross Vehicle Weight increased by 12% allowing MF 7700 Series to carry larger loads and pull heavier trailers
  • New Massey Ferguson designed and built, maintenance-free front axle suspension offers high comfort
  • AGCOMMAND and latest Auto-Guide 3000 ready
  • Available in Essential and Efficient specifications to match all owners’ specific tasks and budgets
  • Higher hydraulic capacity and up to eight spool valves for excellent implement control

Straightforward economic power

In 2008, Massey Ferguson was the first tractor manufacturer to introduce Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), recognised as the most straightforward, reliable and economic method of achieving increasingly strict emission regulations. The MF 7700 Series tractors continue to be powered by six cylinder, AGCO POWER 6.6 litre and 7.4 litre engines, equipped with the latest SCR technology, which remains maintenance free. There is no Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). Larger catalysers remove more pollutants, but remain contained neatly within the same-sized enclosure, retaining the same excellent forward visibility.

Engine Power Management (EPM) provides up to an extra 25hp to improve efficiency and performance on the road and in the field. This is standard on all models, including those equipped with DynaVT transmission.  The Engines feature a new Engine Control Unit (ECU), with higher fuel injection pressure, an electronically controlled wastegate turbocharger and a new throttle valve.

Unrivalled transmission choice

The MF 7700 Series offers an unrivalled choice of transmissions which are perfectly matched to the engines and transmit more power to the wheels for maximum output.

The slick, easy to use Dyna-VT is available across the range from the MF 7715 upwards. Dyna-VT provides stepless speed changes and allows operators to select any combination of engine speed and forward speed to optimise output and the work quality. Engine revs can be set for the precise combination of power and torque required for the best work quality, resulting in optimum fuel economy and lower noise.

While offering the ultimate in sophisticated transmission operation, the Dyna-VT retains the familiar Power Control lever on the left of the dashboard, under the steering wheel, which is a feature on all tractors, regardless of transmission.

The rugged and well proven Dyna-6 transmission provides clutchless operation of six speeds in four ranges providing a total of 24 forward and 24 reverse speeds.  Economy is further improved by the Super Eco Dyna-6 transmission for the MF 7720 to MF 7726 models, which provides 40km/hr achieved at a remarkably low 1,500 engine rpm.

The highly efficient Dyna-4 transmission is standard on the MF 7714 and an option on the MF 7715 tractors, offering 16 forward and 16 reverse speeds with four Dynashift (powershift) speeds in four ranges, allowing road speeds of 40km/hr to be reached at an economical 1,880rpm. Electro-hydraulic control also provides clutchless range changes.

AutoDrive is a performance enhancing option on Dyna-4 and Dyna-6 and provides automatic changing of the six steps in fieldwork, as well as the ranges when in transport.

Using the SIS screen, operators can set the engine speed at which AutoDrive will automatically change gear and with the new ‘Auto’ setting the transmission will also automatically select the most appropriate gear.  All models with Dyna-VT transmissions are equipped with a four-speed PTO system providing of 540, 540E, 1,000 and 1,000E speeds.

A brake-activated neutral feature is standard on all the transmissions, simultaneously operating the clutch as the brake is pressed – easing the load on the operator, while increasing efficiency and convenience, particularly in loader operations.

Hydraulic power and control

MF 7700 Series tractors feature a new load-sensing, closed-centre pump, that come standard with a 110litres/min system and delivers up to 150 litres/min on Dyna-6 tractors, while Dyna-VT models provide up to 190 litres/min. All load-sensing models have decompression levers on the spool valves for easy coupler connection and removal.

Up to four rear spool valves can be specified. When a front linkage is specified additional valves are fitted - one for the front linkage and one or two for front couplers.

New dependable front axle suspension

Massey Ferguson has designed and built a new front axle suspension system specifically for the MF 7700 Series to further boost operator comfort as well as increase dependability. Completely maintenance free, the suspension employs double acting rams, which provide 30% more travel than previous designs.

The rams are attached directly to the axle and the front axle support. This straightforward set-up, without any complex linkages, combines comfort with reliable operation. At the same time it also increases maneuverability.

Up front there are also new mono blocks providing 900kg or 1,500kg of ballast. These compact blocks restrain the overall tractor length and also offer the facility to fit further wafer weights.

Even more cab comfort and control

Operators will also appreciate the new, clear dashboard. The new colour display provides better visibility during the day and at night, making it easier to use the SIS – Set Up and Information Screen.

All Efficient models are equipped with the easy to use Command Control Armrest, which operates a range of frequently used functions. The Essential versions have a longer console  which houses the controls.

The multi-function Joystick, which is an option on all models, provides press button shuttle control, as well as operating the hydraulic spools and/or a loader. It can also be used to change forward speeds and direction.

To ease turning on the headland, Speedsteer reduces the number of steering wheel revolutions needed to turn the wheels from lock-to-lock.

All the MF 7700 Series come with the option of factory-fitted wiring ready to connect up the latest Auto-Guide 3000 automatic steering and AGCOMMAND systems.  The recently introduced ‘Go Mode’ on Auto-Guide 3000 provides a fast set-up and enables users to choose between four steering paths – A-B line, A+ heading, Centre Pivot and curved lines. AGCOMMAND Telemetry improves fleet management, machine monitoring and security while simplifying record keeping and job reports. No software is required because it’s accessed through a secure, mobile friendly webpage.

Small details make a big difference

The MF 7700 Series is packed with small details that make big differences for operators, with the possibility to set the flashing beacon lights to come on automatically when the tractor is on the road and is fitted with automatic sensor lights to get you to your door after a long day.  

When the tractor is finally parked up for the night owners can protect their investment with the option of a unique key - simple, cost effective crime prevention.

For more information on the new MF7700 Series tractors, contact your local dealer, Lockyer Farm Machinery www.lockyerfarmmachinery.com.au  or www.masseyferguson.com.au.
