Two new tractors in the MF 5700 Global Series further reinforce Massey Ferguson’s strength in the below 130hp sector.
Designed and built in Massey Ferguson’s Beauvais facility in France, the new 110hp, MF 5710 and 110hp, MF 5711 tractors complement the 75hp to 95hp MF 4700 Series Global tractors, launched last year. Together, these new introductions underline Massey Ferguson’s significant investment in developing a completely new range of modern, straightforward and versatile tractors.
“Like the MF 4700 Series, which was launched last year, the MF 5700 Series are the only tractors purpose built in the 21st Century specifically for this power bracket,” explains Campbell Scott, Director Marketing Services and Public Relations.
“The modern, straightforward design ensures the tractors are ideally suited to a range of operations on livestock, dairy and mixed farms. As well as making ideal loader tractors, the MF 5700 Series also deliver high performance with ease of operation for a wide range of fieldwork as well as transport applications,” adds Mr Scott.
MF 5700 Series operators benefit from the largest cab in the sector. Designed and built in Beauvais, the spacious, air conditioned cab is equipped to the highest specification, offering industry-leading comfort, control and functionality.
The modern design includes high levels of control and automation, with an ergonomically designed layout making the tractors easy to use, with straightforward operation and features seldom found in this tractor sector.
Both of the tractors are powered by the latest 4.4 litre, four cylinder AGCO Power engine, which meets the strict Stage IV/Tier 4 Final emission regulations using the latest All In One emission system. Fitted neatly under the steps, All In One Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) emissions technology is completely maintenance free and doesn’t compromise power, efficiency or, importantly, visibility.
Massey Ferguson has also used the latest engineering technology to develop a completely new 12 x 12 gearbox specifically for this new range. Direction changes are made effortlessly using a standard left-hand mechanical shuttle, with modern hydraulic activation. Alternatively, Massey Ferguson’s renowned Power Control lever is an option that provides finger-tip direction changes.
The MF 5700 Series’ high specification and modern features continue with its robust and well proven back axle, which is well proven in use on the MF 5600 Series and is equipped with inboard reduction units and oil-immersed brakes.
The rugged three-point linkage’s maximum lift capacity of 4,300kg enables the MF 5700 Series to handle modern implements with ease, with unrivalled operation using Massey Ferguson’s well proven electronic hitch control (ELC).
A two-speed 540/540E rpm is fitted as standard, with control by a modern independent PTO (IPTO) clutch, while electro-hydraulic operation ‘eases’ the engagement and protects the driveline. There is the option of a 540/1,000rpm speed PTO, or a 540/540Eco/1,000rpm PTO.
A new hydraulic system, developed specifically for the Global tractor range, supplies the flow and power required to operate modern implements. For those requiring extra flow – to boost loader performance – the MF 5700 series can be specified with a 98 litre/min combined flow system.
The MF 5710 and MF 5711 make ideal loader tractors and both are fully compatible with the Massey Ferguson 900 and Massey Ferguson 900X loader ranges.
