Massey Ferguson’s state of the art MF 5713 SL tractor has won a Technical Innovation Award at this year’s Royal Highland Show.
The prize is in recognition of its industry leading ‘All-in-One’ system, part of the AGCO Power 4.4 litre four-cylinder engine – which uses the latest Selective Catalytic Reduction technology to meet strict Stage IV/Tier 4 Final emissions regulations.
The award, sponsored by Hillhouse Quarry Group, will be presented by The Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland (RHASS) on Saturday, June 25.
Massey Ferguson’s Advertising and Sales Promotion Manager, Lindsay Haddon said: “We’re delighted to receive the RHASS Technical Innovation Award for our new, All-in-One engine system.
“We're very proud of the design of both the MF 5700 SL Series tractor itself and its state of the art components. The unique features of the highly compact and straightforward ‘All-in-One’ engine emissions system mean that the operator enjoys maximum visibility from the cab over its low swept bonnet and slim exhaust and benefits from lower running costs thanks to greater fuel efficiency and efficient use of power – making the MF 5713 SL a leader in its class.
“The RHASS award demonstrates Massey Ferguson’s continued commitment to investing in the very latest technologies – helping to make the working lives of our farmers that little bit easier while also benefitting the wider environment.”
Launched last year, the highly versatile MF 5700 SL Series tractors are available in four models ranging from 100hp-130hp.
With a 2.55m wheelbase and weighing just 4.8t, they combine a great power to weight ratio with superb agility – ideally suited to a wide range of duties for livestock, mixed and arable farmers.
The advanced AGCO Power 4.4 litre, four-cylinder engine employs the unique, maintenance free, ‘All in One’ Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system together with Diesel Oxidisation Catalyser (DOC).
The technology uses a special ‘swirl’ system to thoroughly mix the exhaust gases and Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) to help meet Stage IV/Tier 4 final emission regulations.
The highly compact unit tucks neatly away under the right-hand side of the cab, ensuring a slim, sloping bonnet that offers superb visibility and manoeuvrability without sacrificing power and efficiency.
The MF 5700 SL range includes a choice of renowned Dyna-4 or Dyna-6 transmissions, with brake to neutral function to help make light work of loader applications. A Massey Ferguson designed and built front axle suspension option is also available.
The tractors come with a unique choice of three hydraulic systems that offer high flow rates and comprehensive control to suit every application.
All models are equipped with an efficient two pump system that delivers 58 litres/min for the spool valves and linkage, with a separate pump for all internal services. For those requiring extra flow to boost loader performance there is also a 100 litre/min combined flow option. A 110 litre/min closed centre load sensing (CCLS) system is another option – delivering flow and pressure on demand for optimum output, control and economy.
The MF 5700 SL Series benefits from the same cab comfort as larger models, while offering superb visibility across the steep nosed bonnet and providing sophisticated but straightforward control. A new Speedsteer option makes it possible to vary the number of steering wheel revolutions needed to turn the wheels from lock-to-lock – helping loading operations and ensuring headland turns can be made quicker and with less effort.
An Auto-Guide 3000 automatic steering option is available as well as the AgCommand telemetry system. The recently introduced ‘Go Mode’ on Auto-Guide 3000 also enables users to choose between four steering paths.
All MF 5700 SL Series tractors can be ‘loader ready’ straight from the factory, with a huge range of features to enhance ease of fitting, use and control.
