Two new MF 7400 models, the 240hp (max), MF 7499 and 225hp (max), MF 7497 are making their Cereals debut.
These powerful and versatile tractors are equipped to the highest specification with a superb power-to-weight ratio that makes them ideally suited to a wide range of modern farming operations.
Both tractors are powered by the latest 7.4 litre capacity AGCO SISU Power engine, which is renowned for its excellent economy and for producing high pulling power at low speeds.
Economy is further enhanced by the standard Dyna-VT continuously variable transmission, which is now equipped with the new Dynamic Tractor Management (DTM) system, first seen on the leading MF 8600 Series
DTM manages the engine speed automatically to consistently maximise productivity and reduce fuel consumption. The system works in all “pedal” and “lever” modes and adjusts the engine and forward speed automatically according to the load to produce optimum economy.
The new tractors also help boost workrates by combining operations using the fully Integrated Front Linkage System (IFLS) and PTO option, which fits neatly into the new front axle support casting. Combined with the excellent power-to-weight ratio, this allows the tractors to easily handle front and rear combinations.
Massey Ferguson’s spacious sector-leading cab, which constrains noise levels to just 70dB(A), is available with Dual Stage pneumatic suspension for top comfort. This system automatically sets itself to match the travelling conditions.
QuadLink front suspension further improves comfort and improves traction. The system, which can be switched on or off, automatically compensates for the weight of a front-mounted implement and provides the same amount of movement without impeding the axle oscillation or turning circle.
A high level of control, monitoring and recording is offered by the Datatronic 3 option. The addition of the ISObus operation option also allows the same terminal to control a wide range of compatible implements with simple “plug in and play” connectivity. Auto-Guide fully automatic and integrated steering is another, output enhancing option.
