The new MF 6700 S Series, which includes the world’s first 200hp, four-cylinder agricultural tractor, made its SIMA Show debut in Paris
There are six new models in the MF 6700 S Series, which offer maximum powers from 120hp to 175hp and all benefit from Electronic Power Management (EPM), which provides an extra 25hp on all models. The latest addition to the lineup, the 6718 S made its international debut at the SIMA show in Paris last week.
It features an unparalleled 4.9 litre, four cylinder engine, developing 200HP is compact, and contributes to its maneuverability. To help this, it has a 2.67m wheelbase and a turning radius of just 4.75m. All MF 6700 S tractors are powered by the latest AGCO Power 4.9 litre engines, which use a maintenance-free Selective Catalytic Convertor (SCR), Diesel Oxidation Catalyst and electronic wastegated turbocharger to improve efficiency and reduce emissions to meet the strict Stage IV (Tier four final) regulations.
“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 in 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,” adds Mr Scott.
