• Great utility/all-purpose tractor
Massey Ferguson, a global brand of AGCO (NYSE:AGCO), has taken another step to reinforce its standing in the mid horsepower utility tractor sector with the introduction of the new MF4600 Series. Three new models make up the range from 4608 80hp, 4609 90hp and the 100hp 4610 and are designed as general purpose tractors to tackle a host of jobs around farms and municipalities.
“There is increasing demand from customers for a tractor in this horsepower category that is nimble, manoeuvrable and responsive,” says Saviour Mangion, Product Manager. “Cattle farms, market gardens, councils and even dairy farmers looking for a second tractor to take on additional tasks are ideally suited to the new MF4600 Series due to its practical features, build quality and competitive price tag,” adds Saviour.
The new range features a Tier 4, 3 cylinder AGCO POWER engine that provides ample torque and power, ensuring enough grunt is on hand when required, while state-of-the art emissions technology, a power-shuttle transmission and improved hydraulic performance top off the features found in these new tractors.
New turbo-charged three-cylinder engines offer power and compliance
The all-new three-cylinder engines from AGCO Power found in the MF4600 Series tractors meet
stringent Tier 4i emissions standards while delivering the turbo-charged diesel power, reliability and long life for which Massey Ferguson tractors are known. As an offering from the AGCO Power 33 AWIC engine family, these engines feature several new and many proven systems for ensuring power and performance along with clean exhaust.
“The design and technology found in these AGCO POWER engines mirror those found in our
larger diesel engines,” says Saviour. “Primarily, we’ve focused on optimising the combustion and fuel use to deliver the power needed in the most fuel-efficient manner possible.”
Each cylinder contains four valves, which increase airflows through the engine and enhances
fuel-air mixing for more complete combustion, helping ensure fuel efficiency. Wet, replaceable cylinder liners with mid-supports improve engine cooling, minimising service and enhancing engine life. In addition, the SisuTronic EEM4, electronic engine management system monitors every aspect of the engine’s operation, controlling fuel flow and adjusting injection timing to deliver outstanding performance with lower fuel consumption. Finally, the engine does not use a diesel particulate filter or additives such as Adblue, so there is no need to regenerate the filter, saving time and fuel.
Power-shuttle transmission for easy operation
All three tractors come standard with a 12-by-12 power-shuttle transmission, which makes back-and-forth loader work quick and convenient. Gears are fully synchronized, allowing for smooth shifting using the foot clutch while on the roll. When quick direction changes are needed, an electronically controlled, wet multi-disc clutch lets the operator shuttle the tractor, changing the direction of travel simply by flipping a lever rather than using the foot clutch.
Adding to the tractor’s convenience for loader work are an optional factory-installed hydraulic
joystick and two mid-mount valves for easy connection of the loader hydraulics.
Exceptional hydraulic performance
The Massey Ferguson 4600 Series boasts exceptional hydraulic flow to power a front loader
and additional hydraulic implements. The open-center hydraulic system, with gear-type pump, delivers 65 litres per minute of total oil flow to the hydraulic circuits for faster loader and implement
cycle times, to help you get work done fast. The hydraulic system also controls the three-point hitch, which has a lift capacity of 2500kg.
The MF4600 Series is available in both Cab and ROPS configurations. The spacious cab has been designed to provide the driver with generous head and leg room and features large doors on both sides for easy access. The cab is quiet and comfortable with all controls logically laid out at arms-reach for easy operation.
“We’re excited with the introduction of the new MF4600 Series and we’re confident that we can provide a solid offering to this increasingly popular sector. Our extensive research and development has lead us to this new range and we’re proud to offer a quality product at a very competitive price that will suit many customers,” claims Saviour.
