The prize is in recognition of its ‘All-in-One’ system, part of the AGCO Power 4.4 litre four-cylinder engine – which uses the latest Selective Catalytic Reduction technology to meet strict Stage IV/Tier 4 Final emissions regulations.
The award, sponsored by Hillhouse Quarry Group, will be presented by The Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland (RHASS) on Saturday, June 25.
Massey Ferguson’s Advertising and Sales Promotion Manager, Lindsay Haddon said: “We’re delighted to receive the RHASS Technical Innovation Award for our new, All-in-One engine system.
“We’re very proud of the design of both the MF 5700 SL Series tractor itself and its state of the art components. The unique features of the highly compact and straightforward ‘All-in-One’ engine emissions system mean that the operator enjoys maximum visibility from the cab over its low swept bonnet and slim exhaust and benefits from lower running costs thanks to greater fuel efficiency and efficient use of power – making the MF 5713 SL a leader in its class.”
Launched last year, the highly versatile MF 5700 SL Series tractors are available in four models ranging from 100hp-130hp.
With a 2.55m wheelbase and weighing just 4.8t, they have a great power to weight ratio and agility which makes them ideal for a wide range of duties for livestock, mixed and arable farmers.
The AGCO Power 4.4 litre, four-cylinder engine employs the ‘All in One’ Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system together with Diesel Oxidisation Catalyser (DOC).
The technology uses a special ‘swirl’ system to thoroughly mix the exhaust gases and Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) to help meet Stage IV/Tier 4 final emission regulations.
The unit is compact and tucks neatly away under the right-hand side of the cab, ensuring a slim, sloping bonnet that offers superb visibility and manoeuvrability without sacrificing power and efficiency.
An Auto-Guide 3000 automatic steering option is available as well as the AgCommand telemetry system. The recently introduced ‘Go Mode’ on Auto-Guide 3000 also enables users to choose between four steering paths.
All MF 5700 SL Series tractors can be ‘loader ready’ straight from the factory, with a huge range of features to enhance ease of fitting, use and control.
