Building on the development of its 4700 Global Series tractor range, Massey Ferguson has extended this with the introduction of two new larger models.
The 5710 and 5711 have power ratings of 100hp and 110hp respectively, and overlap with the lower end of the firm’s 5700 SL models, offering a lower specification alternative.
To recap, the Global Series is MF’s answer to a modern take on a basic tractor, designed to meet the needs of multiple markets around the world which do not require high specification machines. That includes Europe too, with cabbed versions of the series targeted at livestock and mixed farming enterprises, for example.
While the Global Series currently ranges from 75hp to 110hp, the range will eventually see models up to 130hp added.
The 5700 Global Series tractors (fore ground) add to the three-model 4700 Global Series machines (background), offering tractors from 75-110hp.
As for the new 5700 models, both tractors are powered by Agco Power 4.4-litre, four-cylinder engines, meeting Stage 4 emissions regulations via the use of a combined selective catalytic reduction and diesel oxidation catalyser.
Channelling power to the wheels is a six speed synchromesh gearbox providing 12 forward/reverse gears in two ranges, offering a top speed of 40kph. Direction changes are made using a standard left-hand mechanical shuttle.
As an option, the firm’s Power Control lever can be specified which allows electro-hydraulic direction changes, as well as the ability to alter the sensitivity of the shift. This option also provides a declutch button on the gear lever. A ‘creeper’ option offers an additional 14:1 reduction for specialist applications.
A new cab has been developed for the Global Series tractors, with large panoramic doors and curved rear windows.
Electro-hydraulic activation of the diff-lock and four-wheel drive is included, with both systems receiving a certain amount of automation depending on braking application and speed.
The MF 5700 Series tractors use the same rear axle design as used on the 5600 Series, equipped with oil-immersed multi-disc brakes.
For the hydraulics, a gear pump supplies 58 litres/min for the rear linkage and auxiliary spool valves, while another pump delivers 27 litres/min for auxiliary circuits including the steering, 4WD and diff-lock engagement as well as pto control.
For those requiring extra flow - to boost loader performance, for example – the 5700 Series can be specified with a 98 litre/min combined flow system. Two double acting spool valves are fitted as standard and a third spool is an option.
The tractor’s three-point linkage can handle up to 4,300kg. Control is by the firm’s electronic hitch control, featuring a slider for linkage position and a separate rocker switch for quick adjustment, says the manufacturer.
Further linkage settings and controls can be found on the cab’s right-hand B pillar including rate of drop, draft mix and MF’s Active Transport system, which provides suspension for mounted implements during transport.
For powered equipment, the 5700 is equipped with a two-speed 540/540E rpm as standard, but can be specified as an option with a 540/1,000rpm speed pto or a 540/540Eco/1,000rpm pto. A 21-spline shaft is an option with the 1,000rpm pto.
Pto driveline is protected by electro-hydraulic engagement system, which eases the engagement, says the manufacturer.
Both models are also fully compatible with the Massey Ferguson 900 and 900X loader ranges, which are available with parallel and non-parallel lifting. In addition, the MF 5700 Series can be specified with a factory-fitted loader subframe.
The new 5700 Global Series tractors will be available from November, with prices to be confirmed.
