Massey Ferguson, a worldwide brand of AGCO, is pleased to announce the SIMA Show debut the MF 6700 S Series, which includes the world’s first 200hp, four-cylinder agricultural tractor, SIMA Show, in Paris from 26th February to 2nd March 2017.
Its unrivalled four-cylinder power, manoeuvrability and agility puts the MF 6700 S in a class of its own. Massey Ferguson’s new ‘S Effect’ takes maximum four-cylinder engine output to 200hp (with Engine Power Management) for the first time in the flagship MF 6718 S, which along with five other new models at the SIMA Show in Paris.
The compact, powerful engine, a 2.67m wheelbase and a turning radius of just 4.75m also makes the MF 6718 S the most manoeuvrable 200hp agricultural tractor. With an exceptional power to weight ratio, the tractor combines the highest performance with optimum economy.
Light and nimble for loader operations, the MF 6700 S Series also provides the strength, hydraulic power and lift capacity for heavy duty fieldwork.
The six new models in the MF 6700 S Series are powered by the very latest AGCO Power 4.9 litre, four-cylinder engine. This generates maximum powers from 120hp to 175hp, with Engine Power Management (EPM), boosting output on all models - up to 200hp on the largest, MF 6718 S.
“Massey Ferguson invented the concept of the high power, four-cylinder tractor, with the original MF 6600 breaking new ground and creating a completely new class of 150hp+ tractors. Now, with the ‘S effect’ we are further advancing performance this sector up to 200hp on the MF 6718 S,” says Campbell Scott, Massey Ferguson Director Marketing Services.
“The advanced engine develops its maximum power at just 2,000rpm and generates maximum torque at 1,500rpm, which means it delivers exceptional fuel economy combined with superb pulling power – and with plenty in reserve. This provides users with the operating benefits associated with larger, longer and heavier six cylinder tractors, but in a compact and extremely light machine,” he adds.
“The only comparison with the MF 6600 Series is its looks. The MF 6700 S Series contains considerable changes and new developments in engine design, transmission choice, hydraulic output, four-speed PTO and superb cab comfort,” he adds.

Advanced engines deliver high power and optimum economy
The MF 6700 S is powered by a new 4.9 litre, four-cylinder AGCO POWER engine, which delivers exceptional power and torque for high performance at lower engine speeds.
Maximum power is developed at a low 2,000rpm, for optimum economy.
Engine Power Management (EPM), which is available on all models and across all transmission choices, boosts power by up to 25hp, taking the top model, the MF 6718 S to 200hp - making it the most powerful four-cylinder tractor on the market.
High levels of torque are generated at just 1,500rpm, delivering immense pulling power, which is further boosted by EPM. This is particularly useful for transport duties, allowing the tractors to pull away with heavy loads and maintain momentum on the road.
The engine complies with the strict Stage IV (Tier 4 final) emission regulations using a maintenance free, Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) system with an electronic waste-gated turbocharger.
The straightforward and compact design houses the catalysers in the oval-shaped exhaust, and the DOC under the bonnet. There is no need for an additional, large cooling package ensuring the MF 6700 S tractors continue to offer superb visibility to the front and sides.
On top of the engine’s optimum fuel economy and the maintenance free emission regulation system, running costs are further reduced by the 600hr service intervals - 20% longer than previous designs.
Wide transmission choice
The MF 6700 S series is available with a choice of Massey Ferguson’s leading transmission technology and all now are also available on tractors with the EPM boost.
For the first time, the continuously variable Dyna-VT is now available from the 130hp MF 6713 S model upwards. This delivers ultimate control and economy by providing precise regulation of forward speed, while minimising the engine rpm ensuring the tractor always operates at optimum efficiency and economy.
The latest 40km/hr Eco Dyna-4 transmission now offers further efficiency providing 40 km/hr at engine speeds as low as 1,850rpm.
Dyna-6 and Dyna-4 transmissions now provide an AutoDrive pedal mode. In the ‘Automatic’ setting this changes gears automatically, according to the engine load and speed. As well easing operation, this also selects the best setting for performance and fuel economy.
Power, agility and economy
Built on a 2.67m wheelbase, the MF 6700 S tractors weigh 500kg less than their equivalent six cylinder models. Coupled with their powerful engines, this produces an unrivalled power to weight ratio that results in a light footprint and optimum economy.
The MF 6718 S offers tightest turns available from a 200hp agricultural tractor. This is thanks to its compact design and sculpted front frame delivering a turning radius of just 4.75m, even when fitted with the Integrated Front Linkage System (IFLS).
Massey Ferguson’s Speedsteer increases the steering ratio, minimising the number of steering wheel turns needed to make a turn. This increases efficiency making headland turns faster and easier.
Unique Trelleborg tyre option
The exclusive Trelleborg Progressive Traction TM700 and TM800 tyre option further improves performance by efficiently transferring the MF 6700 S tractors’ power and torque to the ground.
Tested to the extreme in the Antarctica2 expedition, which took a standard MF 5610 wheeled tractor to the South Pole, these tyres are proven to improve driver comfort, boost output, reduce soil compaction and cut fuel consumption.
Versatile PTO systems
Depending on model, buyers can choose from a wide PTO speed choice, including 540/1000rpm with a flanged PTO and 6/21 spline shafts at all levels.
Electronic control is standard for Dyna-VT versions. The standard Eco PTO can be specified with mechanical lever or full electronic controls on Dyna-4 and Dyna-6 transmission tractors.
Hydraulics to handle complex implements
Hydraulics on the MF 6700 S range are designed to handle the demands of modern implements with ease, as well as providing the flow and power for fast, efficient loader operations.
Flowrates of up to 190 litres/min are available from the load-sensing system, which delivers the capacity to control even the most complex implements.
Up to five rear hydraulic valves can be specified on all Dyna-VT models, and all rear couplers are equipped with decompression levers, which make it faster and easier to connect-up machines.
Front-mounted implements are catered for with up to two independent front hydraulic valves plus a dedicated front linkage valve.
A new rear power beyond installation is ideal for high-tech hydraulically driven implements equipped with independent flow control valves, such as potato planters and sugar beet harvesters.
Powerful, modern rear linkage
Rear linkage lift capacity is up to 9,600kg on Dyna-VT models (compared with 8,600kg on the MF 6600 Series), which handles heavier, high capacity implements with Massey Ferguson’s renowned electronic linkage control (ELC) providing easy operation.
The ultimate loader tractor
The compact dimensions, power, visibility and high hydraulic capacity make the MF 6700 S the perfect loader tractor, with the addition of the Visioline roof option offering an unrivalled view when loading at height.
Massey Ferguson’s 900 front loader can now be specified with a third, ‘live’ service, a clever addition to the loader hydraulic control that enables the operator to open/close a grab and tip or crowd an implement at the same time.
Tractors can be ordered ‘Loader-Ready’, requiring just the fitting of the loader beams and implement.
Excellent cab comfort
MF 6700 S operators benefit from the same space and cab comfort that is proven on the existing MF 7700 and MF 5700 SL ranges.
These are now equipped with a new active mechanical cab suspension, with Continuous Damping Control (CDC) for the ultimate comfort, both in the field and on the road. This reduces heave/pitch and roll movements, reacting according to vehicle behaviour to provide optimum comfort to match all terrains and conditions.
Inside, the cabs include the same clear, colour dashboard as the range-topping MF 8700 as well as the new Set Up and Information System (SIS), which offers a fast and easy way to set and monitor machine functions.
