The new Massey Ferguson 6700 S Stage V has won ‘Machine of the Year 2020’ at the recent Agritechnica show in Hanover, Germany, taking out top spot in the mid-power tractor category.
“This award recognises the commitment of everyone at Massey Ferguson who contribute their skills and experience to create innovative, cost-effective and easy to operate tractors” explains John Horan, Product Manager for Massey Ferguson Australia and New Zealand.
The team of engineers created the concept of the high power, four-cylinder tractors and was the first to take this up to 200hp.
“The new MF 6700 S Series takes the concept further. With its compact dimensions, exceptional power to weight ratio and tightest turning circle, the tractors combine the highest performance with optimum economy,” he adds.
The new MF 6700 S has five models ranging from 135hp to 180hp and all of the models are equipped with Engine Power Management (EPM) which boost power up to 20hp, which at 200hp makes the MF 6700 S the most powerful four-cylinder in the world.
All MF 6700S Stage V models come with the choice of either Dyna-VT continuously variable transmission (CVT) or the new Dyna-6 Super-Eco. This latest version of the well-regarded semi-powershift enables the tractors to achieve road speeds of up to 40km/hr at just 1,500rpm, resulting in significant fuel savings.
For any farmer or contractor, keeping costs down is a crucial part of any business With straightforward servicing that reduces running costs with long service intervals – 600 hours for the engine and 1800 for the transmission, the MF 6700 S is the ideal work machine. Also fitted is a new automatic hydraulic tappet adjustment further cuts costs, with the maintenance-free system not requiring adjustment during service.
Connectivity is crucial for farmers and contractors, with their tractor essentially acting as their mobile office. Massey Ferguson’s latest Datatronic 5, 9” touch-screen terminal is standard in the Exclusive specification and an option on the Efficient models. This easy to use ISOBUS compatible terminal offers tablet-style operation, enabling operators to access and change settings quickly and easily.
“We are excited to bring the new range of Massey Ferguson 6700 S tractors to Australia and New Zealand in 2020, they’re built for tough conditions and will provide farmers and contractors with the power they need to get the job done” Horan adds.

No Petrol Stop Required
The 36V Li-ion battery pack is designed for demanding, long-lasting use; it fits all of the handheld machines except chainsaws, which require a BLi150 battery. This allows you to switch between different machines with ease, allowing the work to keep going. You have the option to buy an extra battery without a second machine or a second machine without a battery, so you can chose a setup that is suited to your needs. The charge time on these batteries is shorter than the average work time, meaning that if you have an extra battery charging or pre-charged, then work can keep going non-stop. Though there are variations between applications, the aim is the one battery equals one tank of petrol. You can see an estimate of application to battery time on the image below (Click to open larger version).
Husqvarna also offers a backpack battery that provides a capacity up to ten times greater than the integrated battery. This battery works with all Husqvarna handheld products and has an ergonomic harness that can be adjusted to fit any user.

The MF5609 is the winner of the 2016 Bauer Media Top Tractor Shootout, edging out a field of competitive tractors in a testing event at Werribee park.
Three judges put the MF5609 through its paces which included a series of tasks designed to test the tractor's capabilities and versatility. The scoresheet decided the winner and after a comprehensive 30 point scoring process the MF5609 came out on top with its quality and value, fitted with a MF949 loader, and its capacity for work that impressed the judges and propelled it to first position in the shootout.
Features the judges liked:
This is the second year in a row that Massey Ferguson has taken out the Bauer Media event, with the MF7615 taking the honours in 2015, continuing AGCO's record of innovation and quality engineering that typifies Massey Ferguson agricultural products and commitment.
Massey Ferguson is celebrating the 70th anniversary of the start of production of its famous Ferguson TE20 tractor.
On 6 July 1946, the first Ferguson TE20, affectionately known as the ‘Little Grey Fergie’, rolled off the assembly line at its former Banner Lane manufacturing plant in Coventry in the UK. The tractor was the brainchild of engineer and inventor, Harry Ferguson, one of the founders of the present-day Massey Ferguson.
Key to the global success of the tractor was its unique three-point linkage implement attachment system controlled by the tractor’s hydraulics. Designated the ‘Ferguson System,’ this effectively turned the tractor and implement into a single working unit, replacing the previous cumbersome trailed method of implement operation.
Acclaimed as one of the most important engineering developments of the 20th century, the Ferguson System produced major advances in the efficiency of food production. In doing so, it achieved Harry Ferguson's lifelong ambition of helping farmers affordably mechanise all aspects of crop production to better and more economically feed the world. Rated at only 20 horsepower, the TE20 (Tractor England) was incredibly light and small, yet it easily outperformed much bigger units, and at much lower running costs. It provided the breakthrough on which agricultural mechanisation techniques came to be based throughout the world. Over half a million of these diminutive tractors were built at the Banner Lane plant between 6 July 1946 and 13 July 1956. A large number of them are still at work on farms and they are prized collectors’ items.
“We are immensely proud of this legacy of pioneering farm machinery technology,” says Richard Markwell, Massey Ferguson Vice President and Managing Director Europe/Africa/Middle East. “Massey Ferguson continues to develop Harry Ferguson’s vision with our clear aim to produce straightforward, dependable farm equipment which farmers can rely on to care for their vital crops and livestock. Today, MF has one of the strongest-ever machinery line-ups with numerous international awards to its name and growing market share.”
Massey Ferguson is a global farm machinery brand producing a wide range of tractors, harvesting equipment and agricultural implements. Its famous red-liveried equipment is distributed in 140 countries.
The Ferguson TE20’s 70th anniversary inspired the current ‘Tractors – From Factory to Field’ exhibition at Coventry Transport Museum and the public display of the Daniel Massey Bronze Sculpture at the City’s Herbert Museum and Art Gallery. A key event will be ‘70 Tractors for 70 Years’ staged by Culture Coventry, a spectacular parade of Massey Ferguson and Ferguson tractors through the city to Millennium Place outside the Transport Museum on 30 July. Tractors for the parade are being brought together by the Friends of Ferguson Heritage Club and will include a wide range of vintage and veteran models as well as some of the very latest Massey Ferguson tractors under production.
The newly released Massey Ferguson 7700 Series has taken the honours at Farm World 2016
The MF7700 has been awarded by the Tractor and Machinery Association (TMA) for Machine of the Year – Best Powered Machine, amongst a field of competitive tractors at the Lardner Park event held at Warragul.
MF 7700 Series tractors builds on the highly successful and award winning MF 7600 Series. The new range provides an outstanding choice of highly productive, straightforward and dependable tractors comprising innovative features which caught the attention of the TMA Judges.
A total of eight 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 270hp on the flagship MF 7726 model.
Jared Hicks, TMA Judge and local machinery contractor, said there were a number of factors which gave the MF7700 the edge over the competition.
“Overall the MF7700 Series had a number of features which I thought were pretty good. The separate remote bank for the loader frees up the rear remotes for other implements while also allowing priority to the loader. The rear linkage maximum lift capacity is really quite good also at 9,950kg.”
“All round visibility for a tractor this size was also a feature that impressed and everything in the cabin is well laid out and comfortable. The tractor is also at a good price for the horsepower”, Jared says.
Attending Farm World on Behalf of AGCO Australia was John Horan, Massey Ferguson Product Manager who was pleased to accept the award as a confirmation of the MF 7700’s solid design and performance, which is the product of years of development at Massey Ferguson’s Beauvais facility in France.
“The MF 7700 has benefited from a proven pedigree established by the MF 7600 Series which won a number of awards including Machine of the Year, Tractor of the Year Golden Design Award as well as Gold Medals and numerous accolades across Europe. The MF 7700 Series is quickly earning a reputation for being powerful and versatile tractors that offer customers plenty of options in the mid to high horsepower categories.” John says.
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.

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 of 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.
Hydraulic power and control
MF 7700 Series tractors feature a new load-sensing, closed-centre pump, that come standard with a 110litres/min system and delivers up to 150 litres/min on Dyna-6 tractors, while Dyna-VT models provide up to 190 litres/min. All load-sensing models have decompression levers on the spool valves for easy coupler connection and removal.
Up to four rear spool valves can be specified. When a front linkage is specified additional valves are fitted - one for the front linkage and one or two for front couplers.
New dependable front axle suspension
Massey Ferguson has designed and built a new front axle suspension system specifically for the MF 7700 Series to further boost operator comfort as well as increase dependability. Completely maintenance free, the suspension employs double acting rams, which provide 30% more travel than previous designs. The rams are attached directly to the axle and the front axle support. This straightforward set-up, without any complex linkages, combines comfort with reliable operation. At the same time it also increases maneuverability.
Up front there are also new mono blocks providing 900kg or 1,500kg of ballast. These compact blocks restrain the overall tractor length and also offer the facility to fit further wafer weights.
Even more cab comfort and control
Operators will also appreciate the new, clear dashboard. The new colour display provides better visibility during the day and at night, making it easier to use the SIS – Set Up and Information Screen.
All Efficient models are equipped with the easy to use Command Control Armrest, which operates a range of frequently used functions. The Essential versions have a longer console which houses the controls.
The multi-function Joystick, which is an option on all models, provides press button shuttle control, as well as operating the hydraulic spools and/or a loader. It can also be used to change forward speeds and direction.
To ease turning on the headland, Speedsteer reduces the number of steering wheel revolutions needed to turn the wheels from lock-to-lock.
All the MF 7700 Series come with the option of factory-fitted wiring ready to connect up the latest Auto-Guide 3000 automatic steering and AGCOMMAND systems.
The recently introduced ‘Go Mode’ on Auto-Guide 3000 provides a fast set-up and enables users to choose between four steering paths – A-B line, A+ heading, Centre Pivot and curved lines. AGCOMMAND Telemetry improves fleet management, machine monitoring and security while simplifying record keeping and job reports. No software is required because it’s accessed through a secure, mobile friendly webpage.
Small details make a big difference
The MF 7700 Series is packed with small details that make big differences for operators, with the possibility to set the flashing beacon lights to come on automatically when the tractor is on the road and is fitted with automatic sensor lights to get you to your door after a long day.
When the tractor is finally parked up for the night owners can protect their investment with the option of a unique key - simple, cost effective crime prevention.
