power lifter

The new TH7038 tele­han­dler from AGCO brand Massey Fer­gu­son is a high-ca­pac­ity model built for lift­ing heavy, high-den­sity bales, for fast and ef­fi­cient load­ing, and for tow­ing loaded trailers.

The MF TH7038 has a lift ca­pac­ity of 3.8 tonnes, a max­i­mum lift height of 7m and a high-ca­pac­ity hy­draulic sys­tem de­liv­er­ing a flow of up to 190 litres per minute, which makes it ideal for con­trac­tors or co-op­er­a­tives, AGCO says.

The ma­te­rial han­dler is pow­ered by a 4.4-litre, 4-cylin­der

Perkins en­gine which de­liv­ers 130hp.

It fea­tures a fan in­verter – also used on MF 9000 tele­han­dlers – with an au­to­matic op­tion that can reg­u­late speed de­pend­ing on air tem­per­a­ture or can be ad­justed to work at a pre­set speed. This, AGCO says, keeps the en­gine clean and work­ing ef­fi­ciently.

A four-range hy­dro­static trans­mis­sion pro­vides low-speed, high-torque de­liv­ery through two me­chan­i­cal gears and two hy­dro­static ranges, pro­vid­ing op­er­a­tors with ac­cu­rate con­trol dur­ing ma­te­rial han­dling.

All mod­els have three se­lectable steer­ing modes: two-wheel steer; four-wheel steer; and crab-steer. The easy-to-set creeper func­tion is de­signed for op­er­a­tions that de­mand low speed at higher en­gine revs, pro­vid­ing in­creased con­trol and ac­cu­racy for op­er­a­tions such as sweep­ing, feed­ing and straw spread­ing.

The 190L/min hy­draulic sys­tem fea­tures pro­por­tional elec­tro­hy­draulic con­trol, which AGCO says de­liv­ers op­ti­mum ac­cu­racy and pro­duc­tiv­ity.

“This de­liv­ers su­perb lift­ing per­for­mance even at low en­gine speeds,” the com­pany says, “with Massey Fer­gu­son’s SHS

[Smart Han­dling Sys­tem] al­low­ing op­er­a­tors to set the max­i­mum flow for smooth and ac­cu­rate op­er­a­tion.

“Cush­ion Re­tract is now fit­ted to the boom, en­sur­ing a smoother ac­tion and pro­long­ing the life of the com­po­nents. An ad­di­tional elec­tric con­trol can be spec­i­fied to pro­vide a fourth and fifth ser­vice to op­er­ate de­mand­ing im­ple­ments, such as straw chop­pers and feed­ing buck­ets.”

The cab of the Massey Fer­gu­son TH7038 tele­han­dler is de­signed to be quiet and com­fort­able, and a wide-open­ing door has been in­cluded to make it eas­ier to get in and out when the work re­quires op­er­a­tors to dis­mount fre­quently – such as on dairy and live­stock farms.

AGCO says the MF TH tele­han­dler cab of­fers best-in-class vis­i­bil­ity by us­ing curved glass and a stream­lined en­gine bon­net and low boom pivot point.

The “un­ri­valled” view to the rear is use­ful when work­ing in tight and nar­row spa­ces, the com­pany says, while an un­ob­structed view of front at­tach­ments al­lows for the safe and pre­cise load­ing and un­load­ing, mak­ing it eas­ier and safer to po­si­tion bales or pal­lets at el­e­vated work­ing heights..
