Massey Ferguson has launched three new MF4700 series tractors with 75hp, 85hp and 95hp respectively.

Built in its Beauvais factory in France, they have a new up-to-date cab, and fresh engine and driveline.

Power comes from a 3.3 litre three-cylinder engine and a 12×12 mechanical gearbox offers shuttle or powershuttle option.

Four-wheel-drive is standard and an open-centre hydraulic system with tandem pump supplies the pressure and flow required.

Modern electronic linkage control systems are fitted, says the company, and lift capacity is 3t.

Independent 540rpm pto with electro-hydraulic operation with option of 540/540Eco or 540/540E/1000 is standard
A screen in the centre of the cab shows further tractor information, says the company, with easy navigation through the settings using buttons mounted just below the dashboard.

This screen is also used for simple fault diagnostics.

An electronic hitch control “mouse” sits comfortably in the operator’s hand and adjusts implement settings with a thumb slide lever, with a separate up/down rocker just below along with a quick engage button.
Further ELC settings and controls are found on the cab “B pillar” just to the right of the operator.
These look after rate of drop, intermix and the active transport system provides suspension for mounted implements for transport.

A range of socket types to power implement terminals and screens is offered.
There is also a diagnostic socket that allows dealer staff to connect into the tractor’s Canbus system.
AgCommand advanced telemetry monitoring is available as an option.
An engine speed memory is activated by pressing a button in the cab and a rear-pivoting bonnet is said to give good access for servicing.

Fuel capacity is 82 litres.

Two-speed 540/540E rpm or 540/1,000rpm speed PTOs are available through six or 21-spline shafts.
