Massey Ferguson unveils the world’s first 200hp, four-cylinder tractor

Massey Ferguson has unveiled the world’s first 200hp, four cylinder tractor as part of the MF 6700 S series, at the Innov-Agri show in France.

The 6700 S series includes six tractors, with Massey Ferguson’s new ‘S Effect’ taking the maximum four-cylinder engine output to 200hp, with Engine Power Management (EPM), for the first time in the 6718 S model.

The MF 6718 S has a 2.67m wheelbase and a turning radius of just 4.75m which makes it the most manoeuvrable 200hp tractor, according to Massey Ferguson.

Light and nimble for front loader work, the MF 6700 S Series also provides the strength, hydraulic power and lift capacity for heavy duty fieldwork, says the American owned manufacturer.

The six new models in the MF 6700 S Series are powered by the latest AGCO Power 4.9 litre, four-cylinder engine. This generates maximum powers from 120hp to 175hp, with EPM boosting output on all models by 25hp.

Features in the Massey Ferguson 6700 S include:
  • Unrivalled transmission choice includes Dyna-VT continuously variable transmission available from 130hp, as well as award-winning Dyna-4 and Dyna-6 transmissions.
  • Versatile four-speed PTO with electrical speed selection.
  • A lift capacity of up to 9,600kg to handle heavy implements.
  • Higher hydraulic capability with up to 190 litres/min flow and the ability to use up to eight spool valves.
  • Integrated and factory-fitted front sub-frame for straightforward loader installation.

The high powered concept, four cylinder tractor broke new ground and created a new class of 150hp+ tractors with the original Massey Ferguson 6600, says Campbell Scott, Massey Ferguson Director of Marketing Services.

“Now, with the ‘S effect’ we are further advancing performance in this sector, up to 200hp on the MF 6718 S,” Scott says.

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.

These features provides users with the operating benefits associated with larger, longer and heavier six-cylinder tractors, but in a compact and extremely light machine, according to Director of Marekting services.

“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.

Meanwhile, the MF 6718 S has been nominated for the 2017 ‘Tractor of the Year Award’, alongside tractors such as the Fendt 516 Vario and the Case IH Optum 300 CVX.
