Massey Ferguson unveils 6700 Series tractorsAndrew Tellijohn -
Agco's Massey Ferguson brand unveiled two new tractors as part of the debut of its new MF 6700 Global Series at the Techagro Show in the Czech Republic this month. The MF 6712 delivers maximum power of 120 horsepower and the MF 6713 reaches 130 hp, making them the most powerful models in Massey Ferguson's Global Series of all-purpose tractors.
The 6700 Series features 2.5 meter wheelbase and 5.2 ton lift capacity, the AGCO Power 4.4 liter, four- cylinder engines that are equipped with viscous fan and Selective Catalytic Reduction with all-in-one emission control systems, a modern, efficient 12 x 12 mechanical gearbox developed specifically for the series and an advanced open-center hydraulic system with tandem pump and combined flow option.
It has a 5,200 kilogram, or nearly 11,500 pound, lift capacity. The tractors are built for hard work and are perfect loader tractors, according to company officials, who add that they can handle modern implements with ease, company officials say. The heavy duty, structural axle casting design contains "new inboard reduction units, which employ epicyclic gears" that help amplify torque to ensure maximum engine power is being transmitted to the ground for traction and performance.
"The MF 6700 Series is the culmination of Massey Ferguson's significant investment in the Global Series," says Campbell Scott, director marketing services and public relations. "The modern, straight-forward Global Series tractors are purpose-built for ease of use, cost effective operation and superior reliability without compromising comfort or performance."
The Massey Ferguson 5700 Series launched in February at the FIMA show in Spain, along with three models from 75 to 95 horsepower in the 4700 series. The 4700 series was introduced at the Agritechnica Show in Hanover, Germany in November 2015.
Agco officials say they expect the 6700 series of tractors to be unveiled in North America â potentially with some different horsepowers and technical specifications due to factors such as engine emissions regulations â sometime later this year.
