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.
