Have you been keeping up with Massey Ferguson recently? They have been very busy showcasing new tractor launches at the World Ag Expo in Tulare, California, USA, the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky, USA and SIMA this week in Paris. Here are some snapshots of what North America is featuring:
Massey Ferguson® introduces the MF1526 compact tractor, the latest addition to the ever-popular Massey Ferguson 1500 Series compact tractor line. The MF1526 delivers the type of performance and versatility needed for chores around the small farm, to work on the golf course and anything in between. With 25 engine horsepower, a three-range hydrostatic transmission and improved ergonomics for more operator comfort and convenience, it’s a tractor “just right” for almost any job.
“The MF1526 is an all-around machine that offers power and torque to handle loader and grading or tilling projects with ease, and at the same time, convenient size and agility make it a great tractor for jobs such as mowing with a belly mower,” explains Neal Generose, product marketing manager, compact and utility tractors.
Massey Ferguson® is pleased to introduce the all-new MF5450 mid-range tractor featuring the exclusive Hi-Visibility™ Hood design which allows the operator to see the front of the loader bucket for better control and more accurate results.
“The all-new Massey Ferguson 5450 is designed so the operator can see the tip of the loader bucket no matter what the job is,” explains Rene Boivin, product marketing manager, utility,specialty and mid-range tractors. “This is a unique tractor designed specifically for loader work and one especially well suited to the dairy or beef feedlot, where loader work is a daily event whether feeding and caring for cattle or harvesting and moving hay.”
No other mid-range tractor on the market features a hood design with the visibility of the MF5450. Unlike competitive models with a square shape to the hood, the slope of the Hi-Visibility Hood is redesigned to be significantly lower at the front to give operators exceptional sight lines and eliminate blind spots. In fact, operators can see the tip of the loader bucket from their seat inside the cab — which significantly enhances the operator’s ability to control implements with careful precision.
