Massey Ferguson launches 200hp four-cylinder tractor

Massey Ferguson used the recent French Innov-Agri show to launch a new generation of four-cylinder tractors and a line-up of refreshed telehandlers.

6700 S tractor series updates

Topped by a 200hp model and featuring more transmission choice and hydraulic performance, Massey Ferguson has updated its 6600, four-cylinder tractor series.

 

Comprising six models, the new 6700 S series is powered by Agco Power 4.9-litre, four-cylinder engines. These generate maximum power outputs from 120hp to 175hp. On top of this, Engine Power Management (EPM) provides a 25hp boost on all models – giving up to 200hp on the largest 6718 S. Maximum power is achieved at 2,000rpm, with maximum torque reached at 1,500rpm.

 

Engines comply with Stage 4 emission regulations using Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) system. Engine service intervals are up 20 per cent, now 600 hours.

On all but the smallest model, the firm’s Dyna-VT continuously variable transmission is available on all models. Depending on model, Dyna-4 or Dyna-6 powershift transmissions can be specified. The latter offering six powershifts in four ranges.

 

Both powershift transmission options now provide an AutoDrive pedal mode, offering complete changing of gears automatically, based on engine load and speed. Much like the CVT option, MF says the tractor will always try and keep revs low and gear ratio up for efficiency.

 

Built on a 2.67m wheelbase, the 6700 S tractors weigh 500kg less than their equivalent six-cylinder models. In addition, a sculpted front frame offers a turning radius of 4.75m, says the manufacturer, even when fitted with the firm’s integrated front linkage.

 

When selected, MF’s Speedsteer function increases the steering ratio, minimising the number of steering wheel turns from lock to lock.

Depending on model, buyers can choose from a choice of pto options, which can include 540, 540E, 1,000 and 1,000E speeds.

 

Electronic pto control is standard for Dyna-VT tractors. Mechanical lever or full electronic controls can be specified for Dyna-4 and Dyna-6 transmission tractors.

 

As for hydraulics, flowrates of up to 190 litres/min are available from the load-sensing system. Up to five rear hydraulic valves can be specified on all Dyna-VT models, and all rear couplers are equipped with decompression levers, making it faster and easier to connect-up machines. Front-mounted implements are catered for with up to two independent front hydraulic valves plus a dedicated front linkage valve.

 

A new rear power beyond hydraulic system can be specified for on-demand, hydraulically driven implements equipped with independent flow control valves, such as forage wagons, combi balers and potato planters.

Rear linkage lift capacity is up to 9,600kg on Dyna-VT models, compared with 8,600kg on the 6600 series.

 

For loader applications, a transparent roof option can be specified. Tractors can be ordered ‘loader-ready,’ requiring just the fitting of the loader beams with no additional brackets or braces.

 

Cabs are now equipped with a new active mechanical cab suspension. This reduces pitch and roll movements, reacting according to vehicle behaviour.

 

Inside, sees the 8700’s dash used, as well as the firm’s new Set Up and Information System (SIS), which offers a faster and easier way to set and monitor machine functions, it says.

 

All 6700 S tractors are equipped with IsoBus compatible terminals, allowing the tractor’s own screen to provide ‘plug-in and play’ control and operation of a wide range of Iso-compliant implements, says MF.

TH Telehandler series

Ranging from compact to high capacity machines, Massey Ferguson has updated its telehandler range.

 

Featuring the latest Stage 4 compliant engines, power for the new four-model MF TH Telehandler series comes from 3.4-litre, four-cylinder Doosan engines.

 

Continued from the previous MF 9000 telehandler series is the addition of a reversible fan. This now features an automated mode for ease of use, says MF, activated via a button on the dashboard.

 

The bonnet has also been reinforced and features a bigger opening, and a new engine installation has lowered the height of the engine for improved right hand side visibility.

 

All four new models employ hydrostatic transmissions offering four working ranges via two mechanical gears with two hydrostatic ranges in each. This allows low speed, high torque operations, up to road speeds of 40kph, says the manufacturer.

 

A creeper function also offers low forward speeds at higher engine revs, suited to powered attachments for sweeping, bedding, and feeding, for example.

Load sensing hydraulics on the TH.6534 and TH.7038 offer flow rates of up to 190l/min, and all functions are electro-hydraulically and proportionally controlled.

 

For more demanding attachments such as straw choppers and feeding buckets, an electric line can be specified, giving the ability to switch between a fourth and fifth service at the headstock.

 

The firm’s Smart Handling System is standard which allows the operator to set the maximum hydraulic flow available. By limiting the maximum flow, machine operation can be smoother and more accurate, says MF.

 

To avoid the boom retracting with a bang, an end dampening system is engineered into the boom’s ram, cushioning the boom as it retracts.

 

Boom suspension can also be specified to increase comfort when transporting loads or working on rough terrain.

 

An electronic parking brake is now standard for convenience and safety, says the manufacturer, and additional wipers help maintain visibility.
