Massey Fer­gu­son has launched the MF 5700 SL Se­ries, which in­tro­duces four new com­pact trac­tors rated at 100hp to 130hp and weigh­ing in at 4.8 tonnes.

High­light fea­tures of the MF 5700 SL Se­ries in­clude op­tional Speed­steer for tighter and faster turns, Dyna-4 or Dyna-6 trans­mis­sions with brake to neu­tral func­tion, and the new­est AGCO Power 4.4-litre, 4-cylin­der, Stage IV/ Tier 4 en­gine.

The four mod­els, the 5710, 5711, 5712, and 5713, are rated at 100hp (with 420Nm of torque), 110hp (468Nm), 120hp (502Nm), and 130hp (545Nm) re­spec­tively.

Massey Fer­gu­son prod­uct man­ager for AGCO John Ho­ran says the MF 5700 SL Se­ries builds on the suc­cess of the MF 5600 Se­ries.

“They mould to­gether the com­pact di­men­sions re­quired by live­stock and mixed farm­ers with the per­for­mance and power needed for broad­acre work,” Ho­ran says. “We will still of­fer three mod­els in the MF 5600 Se­ries from 85-105hp, which will be avail­able along­side the new MF 5700 SL Se­ries.”

The new 5700 trac­tors will all fea­ture Massey Fer­gu­son and AGCO’s Se­lec­tive Cat­alytic Re­duc­tion (SCR) sys­tem, which Massey Fer­gu­son says “doesn’t sac­ri­fice power, ef­fi­ciency, main­te­nance, ground clear­ance or, im­por­tantly, vis­i­bil­ity”.

It’s called ‘All in One’, and con­sists of what Massey Fer­gu­son de­scribes as a ‘swirl sys­tem’, which mixes ex­haust gases with ad­di­tive such as AdBlue.

Ad­di­tion­ally in­cluded is an elec­tron­i­cally con­trolled waste­gate tur­bocharger and Massey Fer­gu­son’s lat­est “fourth-gen­er­a­tion com­mon-rail fuel in­jec­tion to im­prove en­gine re­spon­sive­ness and over­all per­for­mance”.

The tech­nol­ogy works to­gether to al­low the en­gine to op­er­ate at lower tem­per­a­tures, Massey Fer­gu­son says.

Next along the pow­er­train, the trans­mis­sion is avail­able as ei­ther Dyna-4 or Dyna-6 with the op­tion of Au­toDrive, which pro­vides au­to­matic chang­ing of the four or six steps in field­work.

The Dyna-4 trans­mis­sion of­fers 16 for­ward speeds as well as 16 for re­verse, while the Dyna-6 has 24 speeds each way.

In the cab, the 5700s are fit­ted out with the same com­fort fea­tures as the larger mod­els, with a new, clear dash­board colour dis­play that is also used on the “top-of-the-range MF 8700 Se­ries”.

“The MF 5700 SL Se­ries is avail­able with the op­tion of Auto-Guide 3000 au­to­matic steer­ing. as well as the AgCom­mand teleme­try sys­tem,” Massey Fer­gu­son says.

“Both can also be sup­plied fully in­stalled from the fac­tory.”
