Massey Ferguson introduces the world’s first 200hp four-cylinder tractor – The MF 6718 S

Massey Ferguson, a worldwide brand of AGCO (NYSE: AGCO), is pleased to announce it is setting a new standard with the introduction of the MF 6700 S Series, which includes the world’s first 200 hp, four-cylinder agricultural tractor.

Its unrivalled four-cylinder power, manoeuvrability and agility puts the MF 6700 S in a class of its own. Massey Ferguson’s new ‘S Effect’ takes maximum four-cylinder engine output to 200hp (with Engine Power Management) for the first time in the MF 6718 S, which along with five other new models, will be introduced at Innov-Agri, Outerville, France on 6th to 8th September.

The compact, powerful engine, a 2.67m wheelbase and a turning radius of just 4.75m also makes the MF 6718 S the most manoeuvrable 200hp agricultural tractor. With an exceptional power to weight ratio, the tractor combines the highest performance with optimum economy.

Light and nimble for loader operations, the MF 6700 S Series also provides the strength, hydraulic power and lift capacity for heavy duty fieldwork.

The six new models in the MF 6700 S Series are powered by the very latest AGCO Power 4.9 litre, four-cylinder engine. This generates maximum powers from 120hp to 175hp, with Engine Power Management (EPM), boosting output on all models – up to 200hp on the largest, MF 6718 S.

“Massey Ferguson invented the concept of the high power, four-cylinder tractor, with the original MF 6600 breaking new ground and creating a completely new class of 150hp+ tractors. Now, with the ‘S effect’ we are further advancing performance this sector up to 200hp on the MF 6718 S,” says Campbell Scott, Massey Ferguson Director Marketing Services.

“The advanced engine develops its maximum power at just 2,000rpm and generates maximum torque at 1,500rpm, which means it delivers exceptional fuel economy combined with superb pulling power – and with plenty in reserve. This provides users with the operating benefits associated with larger, longer and heavier six cylinder tractors, but in a compact and extremely light machine,” he adds.

“The only comparison with the MF 6600 Series is its looks. The MF 6700 S Series contains considerable changes and new developments in engine design, transmission choice, hydraulic output, four-speed PTO and superb cab comfort,” he adds.

MF 6700 Series completes Massey Ferguson’s Global Series of tractors from 75hp to 130hp

Two completely new tractors in the Massey Ferguson MF 6700 Series, which offer maximum powers of 120hp in the MF 6712 and 130hp in the MF 6713, are the largest, most powerful models in its Global Series of sturdy and straight-forward, all-purpose tractors.


“The MF 6700 Series is the culmination of Massey Ferguson’s significant investment in developing the Global Series, which now includes three completely new ranges that deliver practical, cost-effective operation for the demanding 75hp to 130hp sector,” says Campbell Scott, Director Marketing Services and Public Relations.

The new MF 6700 Series joins the 100hp and 110hp, MF 5700 Series, launched in February at the FIMA show in Spain, as well as the three models from 75hp to 95hp in the MF 4700 Series.

The new tractors, which are equipped with cabs, are designed and built in Massey Ferguson’s Beauvais factory in France. They are built on a 2.5m wheelbase and offering a 5.2t linkage capacity and now extend the modern design with straight-forward operation benefits of the Global Tractor Series’ into another sector.

Strong and agile, they make ideal loader tractors, capable of handling heavy loads. They also are perfect for livestock and mixed farming enterprises, while their ease of operation and low cost of ownership makes them well-suited to working in fleets on large enterprises, or as the second or third main tractor on big arable farms.

With the MF 6700 Series completing the Global Series, Massey Ferguson now offers customers an unrivalled choice of modern 75hp to 130hp tractors for a diverse farming sector.

MF 6700 Series – key features

The MF 6700 Series are powerful 120hp and 130hp all-purpose tractors built on a 2.5m wheelbase, which provides a 5.2t lift capacity with an up-to-date cab, engine, transmission, rear axle and hydraulics.

Both are powered by advanced AGCO Power 4.4 litre, four cylinder engines equipped with a viscous fan and the award-winning ‘All in One’ Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) emission control system.

Operators are treated to a class-leading air-conditioned cab, which is designed and built in Massey Ferguson’s Beauvais facility and delivers exceptional comfort and control.

A modern, cost effective and efficient 12 x 12 mechanical gearbox has been developed specifically for the MF 6700 Series. This is equipped with a mechanical shuttle, or with the option of an easy-to-use Power Shuttle option.

An advanced open-centre hydraulic system with tandem pump delivers the flow and pressure required to run modern implements, while the combined flow option delivers 98 litres/min flow to boost loader performance. Both models are fully compatible with Massey Ferguson 900 and Massey Ferguson 900X loader ranges, which are available with parallel and non-parallel lifting.

The robust rear axle, as used on the latest, most advanced MF 5700 SL tractors, is built for hard work. With a maximum 5,200kg lift capacity, this handles modern equipment with ease, offering practical operation with a proven, modern electronic linkage control (ELC).

The 540/1,000rpm Independent PTO comes with electro-hydraulic operation as standard, plus there’s a wide choice of speed options to suit all modern applications.

Stylish and functional updates for MF 3600

Massey Ferguson is to update the MF 3600 range in both its Standard and Specialised formats. This will bring the range in line with the current Massey Ferguson styling, and also incorporate a number of new features which have been developed in order to meet the needs of the market.

The tractors from 69-102hp have proved extremely popular on livestock and mixed farms, and in their specialised format, for vineyards, fruit farms and growers of vegetables, salads and other specialist crops.


Rear linkage lift capacity has been increased to maximum of 3 tonnes, allowing a wider range of implements to be operated.

Steering angle has been increased as a result of redesigning the front support on the Specialised models, and is now up to 40.5 deg on the MF 3600GE version, offering easier turning in polytunnels and tight vineyard and orchard layouts.

Tractors in the MF 3600 V/S/F/GE ranges will benefit from revised styling to bring their appearance in line with the rest of the Massey Ferguson range and provide the same attractive look.

Updates include a new roof and grey side panels bringing the sleek family styling to these specialised machines. Appearance and functionality is enhanced with new oval bar lights, work and turning lights.

Models in the MF 3600 Standard Range also get the new roof, plus new oval turning and position lights and new mid-working lights.

Inside the cab, new colours and trim have been incorporated to correspond to other Massey Ferguson models.

A new indicator lever improves the control and comfort of operation as it activates seven lighting and alert functions and a battery switch is now specified.

Optional equipment includes a radio with LCD screen, MP3 compatibility via an SD card or USB link and the facility to store favourite stations. Memory back-up protects stored settings in the event of the battery being disconnected.

Production will begin on the new tractors in September 2015 and the updates will be previewed at SIMA.

Campbell Scott, Director, Sales Engineering and MF Brand Development said: “Updating the MF 3600 gives this very popular tractor the true Massey Ferguson family style plus a number of improvements that will make its operation even more user-friendly and efficient.”
