Massey Ferguson CornFlow™ Maize Headers Enhance Combine Versatility and Exceptional Laid Crops Performance
Massey Ferguson’s new CornFlow header delivers high capacity for faster maize harvesting and exceptional performance in laid crops, with reduced header and cob losses.
Introduced at the SIMA show in Paris, it is designed specifically for use with MF Activa, MF Activa S, MF Beta, MF Centora and MF Delta combine harvesters. The CornFlow range includes eight new models offering a choice of six- and eight-row, rigid and folding models, with 70cm or 75cm row spacings.
All the headers are available in rigid or folding formats, providing transport widths of 3m for the six-row and 3.5m on the eight-row.
MF CornFlow headers are manufactured by leading specialist, Capello , and are designed conjunction with Massey Ferguson. Capello is one of the major maize header manufacturers in the world and is well-respected for its design expertise and high quality engineering.
“The MF CornFlow range extends Massey Ferguson’s full-line strategy,” says Adam Sherriff, Market Development Manager. “This provides customers with a ‘one stop shop’ enabling them to select a specialist maize header that has been designed and built specifically for the combine. They can also be assured they receive the same back-up and service from their local Massey Ferguson dealer.”
MF CornFlow headers will available through the Massey Ferguson Dealer Network across its Europe and Middle East region.
Massey Ferguson is supporting operators of current production MF combines with AGCO’s innovative Harvest Promise compensation scheme.
“In addition to our high spare-parts fill rate of 99%, AGCO provides a unique uptime guarantee to customers,” says Falk Seidenfaden, AGCO Director Global Harvesting Parts. “We know how vital machine uptime is especially during harvest season, and we continue to improve our industry-leading Harvest Promise with the addition of more models and services.”
In the event of eligible MF combines being immobilised due to non-delivery of critical parts within 24 hours, the scheme compensates the customer should a contractor or replacement machine need to be hired to continue the harvest. Under the scheme, a refund of 35 Euros/ha will be made to the customer up to a maximum total of 3500 Euros.
Offered from 1 June to 15 November, the Harvest Promise scheme is available in Germany, France, UK, Italy and Denmark and covers Massey Ferguson combines in current production – specifically the MF ACTIVA, MF ACTIVA S, MF BETA, MF CENTORA and MF DELTA ranges. To be eligible for the scheme, the machine’s serial number must be registered pre-season with MF’s parent company, AGCO, via a Massey Ferguson Dealer who uses genuine AGCO Parts. Full terms and conditions are available from MF dealers.
The new MF ACTIVA S and MF BETA combine harvesters, which make their SIMA Show debut in Paris, France, introduce more engine power, improved operator comfort and control as well as new features to boost harvesting performance.
“Previewed in August last year, these new harvesters are attracting a lot of interest and proving particularly popular among farms looking for an efficient and cost effective combine to secure their own harvests,” says Adam Sherriff, Manager Marketing Powered Harvesting.
The MF ACTIVA S also now boasts the completely new Proline cab, developed specifically for these machines, with operators benefiting from the advanced TechTouch 2 terminal.
“New customers will appreciate the practical features and quality materials built into this new cab, which is equipped with enough, but not too much technology. Although it provides features such as self-setting and automatic reel speed, it’s not overly complex and this has really helped boost sales,” he adds.
These new MF ACTIVA S and MF BETA models, with drum and concave threshing and straw walker separation, offer superb flexibility for efficient harvesting in a wide range of European conditions and crops – even rice.
They provide the power, economy and performance required by the largest sector of the market and offer these users an unrivalled combination of the latest technology with exceptional comfort and control with ease of use from a reliable and straightforward design.
All models can be specified with the market-leading PowerFlow header, which is now available in widths up to 6.8m for the MF ACTIVA S models and 7.7m for the MF BETA combines.

All the combines can be specified with the market-leading PowerFlow header, which is now available in widths up to 6.8m for the MF ACTIVA S models and 7.7m for the MF BETA combines. PowerFlow uses a continuous belt feed to gather crops, reduce table losses significantly and presents an even ‘heads first’ crop flow, which can boost output by up to 73% in oilseed rape.
The new MF ACTIVA S models also now boasts the completely new Proline cab. Developed specifically for these machines and offers specifications usually found only on higher capacity combines, such as the latest TechTouch 2 terminal, which provides automatic settings for numerous crops as well as monitoring all the operations.
This sits in the perfect position at the front of the new armrest that features the Powergrip controller and provides finger and thumb buttons for the most frequently used functions.
AGCO POWER 7.4 litre engines deliver a maximum power of 243hp (ISO) on the five-walker, MF ACTIVA 7345, while a 30hp boost for unloading takes the 276hp max power to 306hp on the MF ACTIVA 7347, which has six straw-walkers.
Both MF ACTIVA S combines are available with the addition of a Multi Crop Separator (MCS), which provides enhanced threshing while remaining gentle on the straw. A full maize kit or a universal concave can be installed for use in sunflower, maize or small grains. A special rice cylinder and peg and tooth option are also available.
Massey Ferguson is also introducing new features on the five-walker MF BETA 7360 and MF 7370, six-walker combine harvesters, which further enhance performance on these popular machines.
The latest MF BETA 7300 Series combines are powered by advanced six cylinder AGCO POWER engines, with the 330hp, 8.4 litre capacity version in the MF 7370 and PL models with 30hp of extra power for unloading. The 7.4 litre engine, powering the MF 7360 and PL generates 276hp for the machines plus 30hp boost.
A new option for the latest MF BETA combines is AutoGuide XLS automatic steering, which can provide accuracy down to 5cm to ensure the combine takes a full cut on each and every run.
All MF BETA six-walker combines benefit from a new six-row straw chopper, which is designed to provide the consistent chopping and spreading performance for users working with reduced tillage operations.
Both the MF BETA 7360 and MF 7370 combines are available with Massey Ferguson’s innovative ParaLevel front-axle system, which provides automatic side-to-side levelling across slopes of up to 20%. Using a novel parallelogram linkage, the compact and clever system connects the front wheel hubs to the chassis via a lower triangular-shaped bracket and a link arm above – forming a parallelogram shaped linkage.
The addition of the new ‘Integrale’ option to PL combines provides complete levelling. This raises and lowers the rear of the machine to compensate for working on slopes – providing uphill levelling of up to 30% as well as the standard 20% side to side compensation. Four-wheel drive is standard on all PL and PLi models.
Jacob Johnsen, Product Manager AGCO Harvesting, gives us a tour around the Massey Ferguson ACTIVA S combine harvester. The 5-walker MF 7345S and 6-walker MF 7347S feature AGCO SISU Power-Selective Catalytic Reduction Generation 2 engines and can be fitted with MF’s renowned Power-Flow table. The cab of this combine has a brand new design that delivers increased levels of comfort for the driver. Overall, the MF ACTIVA S is extremely flexible and provides straightforward specification choices and simplicity of operation for the most demanding of harvests.
