Agritechnica 2011: Perkins power drop-noses

Drop-nose versions of Massey Ferguson’s 100hp 6445 and 115hp 6455 are now available.

With the company’s distinctive new family styling, the two tractors offer several advantages over lower-spec 5400-series equivalents.

Primarily, they get a beefier back-end with six-speed semi-powershift gearbox and eco functions plus a quieter cab packed with more gadgets.

Four-cylinder Perkins power-plants provide the grunt but these are the last MF tractors to employ the British manufacturer’s engines.

MF has opted for units from sister company Sisu in the rest of the range.
