WATCH: First chance to see Massey's new 100-110hp range in Ireland
A completely new Massey Ferguson tractor in the important smaller-to- medium horsepower range - the MF 5700 Global Series - is set to make its Irish debut early next year at the FTMTA Farm Machinery Show at Punchestown in February.
At the same time, new Massey Ferguson telehandler models will be unveiled, together with examples of the new MF 5700 SL and MF 6700 S tractor ranges, which replace the widely-praised MF 5600 and MF 6600 series.
Two mid-range models will represent the MF Global Series banner - the 100hp MF 5710 and the 110hp MF 5711 (pictured) - which have been designed to perform a wide range of operations on livestock, dairy and mixed farms.
Their all-round capabilities embrace loader, field and transport work, while providing users with the largest cab in this competitive sector.
MF 5700 specifications include a range of features normally only found on larger tractors - turbo charger, with electronic waste gate, AdBlue injection in a patented, all-in-one system, creeper gearbox option.
Power shuttle, with Power Control and Comfort Control, Easy Shift control button on the gear lever are additional benefits, together with 58L/min hydraulic flow as standard (100L optional) and a 4.3 tonne lift capacity.
Further up the power curve, visitors will be able to take their first look at the new MF 6700 S Series, in the form of the MF 6718 S, a model capable of generating 175hp max (200hp with EPM).
Now incorporating a turbocharger, with electronic waste gate, and with automatic engine braking through fan engagement, the MF 6700 S Series looks set to expand the fan base built by its predecessor.
