Massey Ferguson, all the news from Fieragricola
The new solutions by Massey Ferguson for agriculture are very evident at the Verona show. From specialized tractors to round balers, from mowers to services, the manufacturer offers operators in the sector the opportunity to choose from a wide range of products designed to optimize agricultural work
“We are very excited about the idea of introducing these new machines. Massey Ferguson products reflect our main goal: satisfying the customer with solutions that meet the needs of the business, guaranteeing a good return on investment and considerable resale value”.
These are the words with which Gianluca Gherardi, National Sales Manager of Massey Ferguson, presented to the general public of Fieragricola the new 2018 range for the Italian market.
It starts with the MF 3700 Series (V, S, F, GE and WF), a range of machines for vineyards, orchards and hill crops. With working widths between 1 and 1.5 m, the MF also includes the new Wide Fruit (WF) model with widened axles for greater stability.
It is therefore an ideal machine for use in hilly vineyards or in livestock farms with sloping fields. Powered by rugged Stage 3B four-cylinder powertrains with enhanced hydraulic flow, MF tractors come with an integrated front linkage, a PDF and a front loader frame, all specially designed for use with various types of specialized applications.
The strong points of the new Massey Ferguson line include low running costs, service intervals of up to 600 hours and extended operating range (the tank has more capacity).
The new MF 3700 series consists of five models: V (Vineyard), S (Special), F (Orchard), GE (Ground Effect - low profile) and the new WF (Wide Fruit).
S series. The main news for this range concern the renewed design, the Fieldstar 5 touchscreen terminal and a set of new features that improve comfort, efficiency and safety. The complete offerings include the following ranges: MF 8700 S with 270-400 Hp, MF 7700 S with 140-280 Hp, MF 6700 S with 120-200 Hp and MF 5700 S with 100-130 Hp. The 95 Hp MF 5709 S is a new model that joins the lower portion of the MF 5700 S range, with smaller dimensions, in addition to offering the choice between Dyna-4 or Dyna-6 transmissions.
MF RB. The Massey Ferguson round baler line includes five models available with fixed or variable chamber, recommended for large or small farms, as well as contractors. At Fieragricola, the flagship of the range is the MF RB 4160, which stands out for its work capacity and eye-catching design.
MF DM TL-V. The Massey Ferguson series of mowers includes two new vertically folded disk applications for safe and convenient transport. All the machines offer the choice between roller (RC) or tine (KC) conditioner with a working width ranging from a minimum of 3.1 to a maximum of 3.6 metres.
MF TH 7038. This is a semi-compact telescopic lifter whose main strength is its manoeuvrability. With a lifting height of up to 7 metres and a capacity of 3,800 kg, the MF TH 7038 offers all the power, strength and efficiency required for the most demanding jobs, and comes with a wide range of front tools.
Massey Ferguson Services. In the services segment, Massey Ferguson presents equally rich offerings, with regular maintenance contracts, extended warranty and technical support.
This broad and varied range of choices provides users with all the support necessary to carry out their work efficiently and with minimum downtime.
