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 four-cylinder power, manoeuvrability and agility Massey Ferguson say the MF 6700 S is in a class of its own, Massey’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 extremely manoeuvrable.
“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.
