Massey Ferguson has developed three new models specifically for the 75ho to 100 hp sector.
Fitted with cabs and offering powers of 75hp, 85hp and 95hp, the brand new MF 4700 Series tractors feature the most up to date engine, transmission, cab and driveline technology.
“Designed by engineers in Massey Ferguson’s Beauvais facility, the MF 4700 Series are not only completely new tractors, they also introduce an entirely original concept in modern tractor development,” says Campbell Scott, Director, Marketing Services.
“The MF 4700 Series are the first, and only, tractors available that have been totally designed in the 21st Century to deliver the straightforward, rugged and reliable operation for users in the 75hp to 130hp sector.
“They not only introduce modern technology to this size of tractor for the first time, but they are also purpose-built for this important sector. And, of course, they benefit from over half a century of Massey Ferguson’s experience of producing pioneering, straightforward and dependable tractors,” he adds.
The MF 4700 Series has a completely new, spacious, air-conditioned and is equipped to the highest specifications. All new tractors are powered by AGCO Power 3.3 litre, three cylinder engines. These engines meet Stage IV/Tier 4 regulations with maintenance free Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology. An engine speed memory is standard and is activated by simply pressing a button in the cab.
Massey Ferguson has developed a 12 x 12 mechanical gearbox specifically for the MF 4700 Series. This is equipped with a synchronised reverse shuttle, with hydraulic clutch activation for easy shifting as standard.
The Powershuttle control lever is an option that provides finger-tip direction changes and comes with a button on the gear lever to activate the clutch. This is similar to that used on larger Massey Ferguson tractors and comes with Comfort Control to allow operators to adjust the sensitivity of the shift.
Four-wheel drive is provided by a centre-mounted shaft tucked neatly under the centre of the gearbox and engine. It is engaged electro-hydraulically and is disengaged automatically at speeds more than 14km/hr and activated again as speeds drop.
All the new tractors are equipped with a new open-centre hydraulic system. This uses a tandem pump to supply the pressure and flow required to operate the latest implements.
The three point linkage’s 3,000kg lift capacity handles modern implements with ease. The electronic linkage control (ELC) system is operated by a convenient ‘mouse’, which fits neatly into the hand and provides straightforward and efficient operation.
The MF 4700 are fully compatible with the Massey Ferguson 900 and 900X ranges, which offer a wide choice of lift capacity, height and controls.
