New Massey Fer­gu­son 7700 se­ries trac­tors of­fer straight­for­ward so­phis­ti­ca­tion

Farm World News - - Farm World 2016 -

Massey Fer­gu­son, a world­wide brand of AGCO (NYSE: AGCO) has re­leased the new MF 7700 se­ries trac­tors which build on the highly suc­cess­ful and award win­ning MF 7600 se­ries. The new range pro­vides an out­stand­ing choice of highly pro­duc­tive, straight­for­ward and de­pend­able trac­tors.

A to­tal of 8 mod­els of­fer max­i­mum pow­ers of 140hp to 255hp, pro­vid­ing a choice of three trans­mis­sions and two lev­els of spec­i­fi­ca­tion.

En­gine Power Man­age­ment (EPM), which pro­vides up to 25hp ex­tra power, is stan­dard on all mod­els tak­ing max­i­mum power to 280hp on the flag­ship MF 7726 model.

“The MF 7700 se­ries con­tin­ues Massey Fer­gu­son’s drive to de­velop de­pend­able, straight­for­ward, low main­te­nance trac­tors that pro­vide ef­fi­cien­cies across all farm­ing op­er­a­tions,” said Michael Par­tridge, Gen­eral Mar­ket­ing Man­ager – Trac­tors. These new trac­tors ben­e­fit from the ex­cel­lent pedi­gree es­tab­lished by the MF 7600 se­ries which won Ma­chine of the Year, Trac­tor of the Year Golden De­sign Award as well as gold medals and nu­mer­ous ac­co­lades across Europe. It has also es­tab­lished a proven track record and gained strong re­spect from cus­tomers,” he added.

Massey Fer­gu­son has fur­ther re­fined this win­ning de­sign and added new fea­tures that boost com­fort and con­trol, lead­ing to even greater per­for­mance and pro­duc­tiv­ity to fur­ther re­duce over­all own­er­ship costs.

MF 7700 se­ries fea­tures

Lat­est tech­nol­ogy six cylin­der, 6.6 litre and 7.4 litre AGCO POWER en­gine, with En­gine Power Man­age­ment (EPM) gen­er­at­ing 25hp ex­tra power on all mod­els

Un­ri­valled choice of Dyna-4, Dyna-6 semi-pow­er­shift or Dyna-VT con­tin­u­ously vari­able trans­mis­sion (de­pend­ing on model)

Elec­tronic PTO speed se­lec­tion on all Ef­fi­cient and Ex­clu­sive mod­els

High ca­pac­ity – per­mis­si­ble gross ve­hi­cle weight in­creased by 12% al­low­ing MF 7700 se­ries to carry larger loads and pull heav­ier trail­ers

New Massey Fer­gu­son de­signed and built, main­te­nance­free front axle sus­pen­sion of­fers high com­fort AG­COM­MAND and lat­est auto-guide 3000 ready Avail­able in Es­sen­tial and Ef­fi­cient spec­i­fi­ca­tions to match all own­ers’ spe­cific tasks and bud­gets

Higher hy­draulic ca­pac­ity and up to eight spool valves for ex­cel­lent im­ple­ment con­trol

Straight­for­ward eco­nomic power

In 2008, Massey Fer­gu­son was the first trac­tor man­u­fac­turer to in­tro­duce Selec­tive Cat­alytic Re­duc­tion (SCR), recog­nised as the most straight­for­ward, re­li­able and eco­nomic method of achiev­ing in­creas­ingly strict emis­sion reg­u­la­tions.

The MF 7700 se­ries trac­tors con­tinue to be pow­ered by six cylin­der, AGCO POWER 6.6 litre and 7.4 litre en­gines, equipped with the lat­est SCR tech­nol­ogy, which re­mains main­te­nance free. There is no Diesel Par­tic­u­late Fil­ter (DPF).

Larger catal­y­sers re­move more pol­lu­tants, but re­main con­tained neatly within the same-sized en­clo­sure, re­tain­ing the same ex­cel­lent for­ward vis­i­bil­ity.

En­gine Power Man­age­ment (EPM) pro­vides up to an ex­tra 25hp to im­prove ef­fi­ciency and per­for­mance on the road and in the field. This is stan­dard on all mod­els, in­clud­ing those equipped with Dy­naVT trans­mis­sion.

The en­gines fea­ture a new En­gine Con­trol Unit (ECU), with higher fuel in­jec­tion pres­sure, an elec­tron­i­cally con­trolled waste­gate tur­bocharger and a new throt­tle valve.

Un­ri­valled trans­mis­sion choice

The MF 7700 se­ries of­fers an un­ri­valled choice of trans­mis­sions which are per­fectly matched to the en­gines and trans­mit more power to the wheels for max­i­mum out­put.

The slick, easy to use Dyna-VT is avail­able across the range from the MF 7715 up­wards. Dyna-VT pro­vides step­less speed changes and al­lows op­er­a­tors to select any com­bi­na­tion of en­gine speed and for­ward speed to op­ti­mise out­put and the work qual­ity.

En­gine revs can be set for the pre­cise com­bi­na­tion of power and torque re­quired for the best work qual­ity, re­sult­ing in op­ti­mum fuel econ­omy and lower noise.

While of­fer­ing the ul­ti­mate in so­phis­ti­cated trans­mis­sion op­er­a­tion, the Dyna-VT re­tains the fa­mil­iar power con­trol lever on the left of the dash­board, un­der the steer­ing wheel, which is a fea­ture on all trac­tors, re­gard­less of trans­mis­sion.

The rugged and well proven Dyna-6 trans­mis­sion pro­vides clutch­less op­er­a­tion of six speeds in four ranges pro­vid­ing a to­tal of 24 for­ward and 24 re­verse speeds.

Econ­omy is fur­ther im­proved by the Su­per Eco Dyna-6 trans­mis­sion for the MF 7720 to MF 7726 mod­els, which pro­vides 40km/hr achieved at a re­mark­ably low 1,500 en­gine rpm. The highly ef­fi­cient Dyna-4 trans­mis­sion is stan­dard on the MF 7714 and an op­tion on the MF 7715 trac­tors, of­fer­ing 16 for­ward and 16 re­verse speeds with four Dy­nashift (pow­er­shift) speeds in four ranges, al­low­ing road speeds of 40km/hr to be reached at an eco­nom­i­cal 1,880rpm.

Elec­tro-hy­draulic con­trol also pro­vides clutch­less range changes. Au­toDrive is a per­for­mance en­hanc­ing op­tion on Dyna-4 and Dyna-6 and pro­vides au­to­matic chang­ing of the six steps in field­work, as well as the ranges when in trans­port.

Us­ing the SIS screen, op­er­a­tors can set the en­gine speed at which Au­todrive will au­to­mat­i­cally change gear and with the new ‘auto’ set­ting the trans­mis­sion will also au­to­mat­i­cally select the most ap­pro­pri­ate gear.

All mod­els with Dyna-VT trans­mis­sions are equipped with a four-speed PTO sys­tem pro­vid­ing 540, 540E, 1,000 and 1,000E speeds.

A brake-ac­ti­vated neu­tral fea­ture is stan­dard on all the trans­mis­sions, si­mul­ta­ne­ously oper­at­ing the clutch as the brake is pressed – eas­ing the load on the op­er­a­tor, while in­creas­ing ef­fi­ciency and con­ve­nience, par­tic­u­larly in loader op­er­a­tions.
