The Massey Ferguson MF 5600 Series was honoured with an Award of Merit for the Best New Product or Innovation at the LAMMA show 2013.
The tractors, which made their UK debut at the event, attracted many positive comments from throngs of visitors to the busy stand.
“The MF 5600 Series brings together straight-forward operation with some sophisticated features that provide great comfort and control,” says Andy Prosser, Manager Sales Support, who accepted the Award at the event. “We are proud to win this award because it supports our conviction that these tractors, which introduce a unique brake-pedal activated neutral, not only set the benchmark for loader operations but also in terms of engine power, torque and manoeuvrability.”
All models are powered by a ground-breaking three cylinder AGCO POWER engine, which is a compact design that uses just diesel, while still meeting the stringent emissions regulations with a maintenance-free DOC. The Dyna-4 ECO 16/16 transmission offers superb control, effortless clutchless shifting between speeds and direction and now the option of AutoDrive automatic changing.
Operators will also appreciate the new, spacious cab that is the based on that used on the larger MF 7600 range. This boasts a new right-hand console and controls that provide simple operation and can be specified with a Slimline, Visio or Standard roof as well as being fitted in two positions to exactly suit all customers’ requirements.
The MF 5600 Series sets the new standard for loader operations. The three cylinder engine’s compact dimension ensures excellent manoeuvrability and combines with the transmission’s ease of operation, with a new joystick not only operating the loader, but also changes direction with the same lever. A new automatic high-flow 100 litre/min hydraulic option also speeds up cycle times.
