New 112-132hp MF 6700 Global Series Platform Tractors for Africa and the Middle East

Massey Ferguson is proud to announce the introduction of the new MF 6700 Tractor Series, a major step forward in the evolution of the Massey Ferguson Global Series.

The new MF 6700 range is the most powerful range in the Massey Ferguson Global Series with engine power outputs from 112hp to132hp.

Following the path set out by the MF 4700 Series for a strong workhorse across a full range of applications, the MF 6700 Series provides even greater performance in a modern straightforward design, low cost of ownership and enhanced reliability.

Power is supplied by a new AGCO Power four-cylinder turbo charged engine compliant with Tier 2 emissions legislation, offering: MF 6711 with 112hp/83kW, MF 6712 with 122hp/91kW and the flagship MF 6713 with132hp/98kW.

The engine is designed for the greater output required in this power sector. This includes high torque for plenty of pulling power at lower revs, reducing noise and fuel consumption. A 170 litre capacity fuel tank offers long hours’ performance in the field.

The new engine is complemented by a 12x12 speed synchromesh shuttle transmission, offering two ranges with six gears in each. A Power Shuttle can also be specified, giving forward/reverse shifts via a lever, and without the need to declutch.

True four-wheel drive is offered by the hydraulically locking differential, which locks the front and rear wheels simultaneously and is easily disengaged at the end of a run.

Larger, heavier duty castings and components on the new rear axle provide extra strength, with an impressive lift capacity of 5200kg on the category II rear linkage.

Massey Ferguson’s proven Electronic Linkage Control (ELC) system provides accurate linkage control, simple operation and easy adjustment with minimal maintenance.

Additional hydraulic capacity also means that more demanding implements can be handled. The standard 57 litres/min output from the open-centre hydraulic system can be increased as an option to 98 litres/min.

As standard, a 540rpm PTO speed is offered, but purchasers can also specify 540/540E or 540/1000rpm options. Engagement is via a rocker switch on the control console.

Designed with the operator in mind, the MF 6700 offers excellent access for routine maintenance, with a one-piece bonnet which lifts clear of the engine.

Operation is also exceptionally simple, allowing any member of the farming team to use the tractor. The ISO-mounted flat floor platform can be accessed from either side and a folding ROPS frame with sun canopy and operator seat belt are fitted as standard.

A feature of the Massey Ferguson Global Series is the specification of Trelleborg radial tyres. which offer increased traction, reduced soil compaction and fuel consumption.

Ashley Fleming, Marketing Specialist, Massey Ferguson for Africa and Middle East comments: “This is a very important tractor for Massey Ferguson in Africa and the Middle East, offering farmers more power and increased versatility, while retaining the straightforward dependability and ease of operation that the Massey Ferguson Global Series has become renowned for. The latest technology is combined with familiar controls to make the MF 6700 an invaluable power unit for any farming operation.”
