Massey Ferguson MF 6718 S – The World’s First 200hp Four-Cylinder Tractor – Makes its SIMA Debut

The new MF 6700 S Series, which includes the world’s first 200hp, four-cylinder agricultural tractor, made its SIMA Show debut in Paris, following its preview in France last year.

With its unrivalled four-cylinder power, manoeuvrability and agility the MF 6700 S is in a class of its own, with Massey Ferguson’s new ‘S Effect’ taking maximum four-cylinder engine output to 200hp (with Engine Power Management) for the first time in the MF 6718 S.

The compact, 4.9 litre four-cylinder engine, 2.67m wheelbase and a turning radius of just 4.75m also makes the MF 6718 S the most manoeuvrable 200hp tractor.

“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 in 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.

There are six new models in the MF 6700 S Series, which offer maximum powers from 120hp to 175hp and all benefit from Electronic Power Management (EPM), which provides an extra 25hp on all models.

“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,” adds Mr Scott.

All MF 6700 S tractors are powered by the latest AGCO Power 4.9 litre engines, which use a maintenance-free Selective Catalytic Convertor (SCR), Diesel Oxidation Catalyst and electronic wastegated turbocharger to improve efficiency and reduce emissions to meet the strict Stage IV (Tier four final) regulations

The MF 6700 S tractors are equipped to the highest specifications including a choice of transmission, which depending on model, includes Dyna-4, Dyna-6 and the Dyna-VT continuously variable transmission, which is now available for the first time from 130hp.

Massey Ferguson Global Series Tractor Visioline Roof Further Improves Visibility for Load Operations

The addition of the new Visioline Roof option for Global Series tractors, launched at the SIMA, Paris show, further improves the tractors’ visibility, safety and efficiency when handling loads.

The new Visioline Roof option enhances the Global Series tractors’ already superb loader work credentials. The glass roof, protected by sturdy metal bars, complies fully with both ROPS and FOPS protection standards.

Ensuring a clear view of the load at heights in all weathers and conditions, the toughened glass screen is equipped with its own, unique integral demist system and air vents. Compared with other materials, such as polycarbonate, Massey Ferguson’s Visioline glass roof offers superior performance because it does not ‘haze’ over time, provides a much clearer view and ‘demists’ quickly.

All Global Series tractors can be specified loader-ready for work with a Massey Ferguson loader. The tractor will come equipped with a sub-frame, which is an integral part of the machine – designed specifically for the model, to maintain maximum manoeuvrability and ease of maintenance access.

This helps maintain perfect visibility over the sloping bonnet, thanks to Massey Ferguson’s elegant approach to exhaust emission reduction, using its simple, maintenance-free SCR system.

Massey Ferguson’s Global Series is the first tractor range to be developed in recent times specifically for the demanding 60hp to 130hp multi-purpose sector. As well as providing the most up-to-date specifications in their class, the tractors are also built using the most modern computer-aided design and manufacturing technology.

New 400hp Massey Ferguson Flagship Heads Enhanced MF 8700 Series

The 400hp MF 8740, introduced at the SIMA, Paris show, is the new Massey Ferguson flagship tractor, heading up the enhanced, six-model MF 8700 Series.

At 400hp, the new MF 8740 is at the top of the MF 8700 Series, which delivers high efficiency, fuel economy and straightforward operation, with enhanced features and reliability.

As well as producing lively performance, the low weight of the 400hp MF 8740, results in a class leading power to weight ratio of just 26.7kg/hp. This delivers superb economy and performance in all operations and, for draft work, it’s easy to mount ballast to the front linkage and wheels.

Offering powers from 270hp to 400hp, all MF 8700 Series tractors are also equipped with Massey Ferguson’s advanced, new Datatronic 5 terminal. This delivers tablet-style operation and comes complete with automatic steering as well as the option of putting a complete precision farming package at operators’ fingertips.

Other detailed changes improve productivity as well as increase operator comfort and safety.

“The MF 8700 Series is the pinnacle of Massey Ferguson’s pioneering approach to producing lightweight and powerful tractors,” says Campbell Scott, Director Marketing Services. “The light weight and high power, provide an industry-leading power to weight ratio. Combined with enormous strength, this results in a versatile, agile tractor that delivers maximum performance for a wide range of operations.

“With a minimum weight of just 10.8t, the MF 8700 Series tractors are up to 4t lighter than others in this class. This allows them to tread lightly for top work and transport. The strong design enables them to be ballasted up for draft operations as well as handle heavy loads and offer an impressive maximum permitted weight of 18t.

“When equipped with the new very flexible, Michelin AxioBib2 VF 650/85 R42 tyre option they provide exceptional traction to get the work done faster, while protecting the soil,” he adds.

All MF 8700 Series tractors are equipped with Massey Ferguson’s Dyna-VT transmission, which allows operators to continuously vary speeds to achieve the best work quality. Optimum economy and performance are assured by Dynamic Tractor Management, which automatically adjusts the engine speed and transmission for the most efficient operation.

The new ISOBUS-compatible Datatronic 5 terminal is fitted as standard on all new MF 8700 Series tractors. Its clear and concise 9in touch screen, which employs tablet and smartphone technology, enables operators to access and change settings quickly and instinctively.

Datatronic 5 provides complete tractor and implement control and precision farming functions, as well as making autosteering easy, with Auto-Guide. The same terminal also offers the option to use an advanced suite of features, including mapping, automatic section control, variable rate applications, record keeping and comprehensive fleet and machinery monitoring.
