Replacing the previous 8900 Xtra range of telescopic handler, Massey Ferguson’s MF 9000 series consists of three new models ranging from 100hp to 130hp – the MF 9306, 9407, and 9407S.
The 9306 has 3t lift and 6m reach whereas the 9407 has 3.5t lift and 7m reach. The 9407S has the same lift as the 9407, but a larger engine for more demanding tasks like handling straw.
Each is fitted with a Perkins four-cylinder engine, and gets a two range 40kph hydrostatic transmission. The new boom configuration has a low rear pivot point for better visibility and hydraulics are supplied by a 190litres/min closed centre load sensing pump.
Also joining the handler line-up is the new MF 9205 – a 2.2t capacity, 5.21m machine developed to meet the need for a compact telescopic handler.
Powered by a side-mounted 75hp, four-cylinder engine, the 9205 has a new 25kph hydrostatic transmission. It measures 1.98m high and 1.83m wide (on 14 x 17.5m tyres) and is 3.9m long and can turn in a radius of 3.17m.
