Massey Ferguson has announced the introduction of the MF 6700 S Series, which includes the world’s first 200 hp, four-cylinder agricultural tractor.
Massey Ferguson claim its four-cylinder power, manoeuvrability and agility puts the MF 6700 S in a class of its own with MF’s new ‘S Effect’ taking the four-cylinder engine output to 200hp (with Engine Power Management) for the first time, which along with five other new models, will be introduced at Innov-Agri, Outerville, France on 6th to 8th September.
The compact, engine, a 2.67m wheelbase and a turning radius of 4.75m also makes the MF 6718 S highly manoeuvrable.
Light and nimble for loader operations, the MF 6700 S Series also provides the strength, hydraulic power and lift capacity for heavy duty fieldwork.
The six new models in the MF 6700 S Series are powered by the very latest AGCO Power 4.9 litre, four-cylinder engine. This generates maximum powers from 120hp to 175hp, with Engine Power Management (EPM), boosting output on all models – up to 200hp on the largest, MF 6718 S.
“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 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 2,000 rpm 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.
“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,” he adds.
