For this year’s Cereals, Massey Ferguson is introducing a new concept in combine harvester automatic levelling on its new MF 7360 and MF 7370 Beta ParaLevel models.
The robust, straightforward system uses a parallel linkage system that allows the fitting of wide tyres while maintaining the important 3.5m width for road transport.
These combines also feature new engines with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) as well as new CANbus electronic control and operating terminal and will take over from the existing Beta AutoLevel machines later this year.
“The new ParaLevel system on these MF Beta combines is an exciting and unique development,” says Adam Sherriff, manager of powered harvesting.
“It’s staggering how much of our cropped land requires a levelling system to get the best from a combine harvester. The ParaLevel harvesters not only improve safety, but also enable the operator to really enhance performance by reducing losses and improving the sample quality from these areas, compared with those who have to make compromises when operating on sloping terrain operation,” he explains.
