New machines head up MF’s full-line offering at Grassland UK

Massey Ferguson says that its presence at next month’s Bath & West Grassland UK event, will be dominated by a new generation of farm machinery and equipment, designed to make the work of mixed farming enterprises a whole lot easier.

The MF offering is set to include the latest mid to high horsepower S Series tractors, the MF 4700 & 5700 ranging from 75 to 110 hp, brand new round balers and the latest telehandlers. And, in what is Massey Ferguson’s Diamond Anniversary year, examples of the company’s newest mower, rake and tedder models will also be on display at the event at Shepton Mallet.

Ready for action at the Grassland UK site, the latest round balers, represented by the MF RB 2125 Fixed chamber baler and the MF RB 4160 Variable chamber baler. This round baler model range now offers a wide choice of fixed and variable chamber machines to meet the needs of smaller stock farms, larger mixed grass/arable units and high-use contractors. These balers are a fusion of straightforward operation and design excellence.

Taking centre-stage will be Massey Ferguson’s range of grass machinery, since its acquisition in 2016, the collection of rakes, mowers and tedders has gained major momentum and is becoming increasingly popular. Brand-new and showcasing for the first time here in the UK will be the impressive MF DM 316 TL KC V Vertical lift mower and newly styled MF DM 306 FP KC mower.

With the extensive range of MF rakes – in which there are more than 20 models – options include single, twin or four rotors, with side or centre delivery and a wide range of working widths, so there’s one to suit all situations and preferences.

Those coming to Grassland UK will be able to see the MF RK 662 TRC working the demo arena, a two-rotor, centre-delivery model, working to a width of up to 4.5m and with a 12-4 tine arm configuration.

And, just before the baler’s arrival in the field, the tedder will have done its job. MF’s plans include having several from its comprehensive range on display, including the MF TD 524 DN and MF TD 776 TRC. In total, the MF range includes 12 models spanning working widths from 4.5m to 12.7m, each with easily adjusted spreading angles – 15, 18 or 20.5 degrees – to cope easily with all forage and crop conditions.

The MF TD 524 DN operates via the three-point linkage covering a width of 5.2m and with six tine arms on each of the four rotors.

Venturing across to the clamp demonstration area, you will find the MF 7722 S with buckrake, making light work of silage. The MF 7700 S Series is perfect for this type of work with its excellent power-to-weight ratio and agile performance.
