New machines head up MF’s full-line offering at FTMTA Grass & Muck

Massey Ferguson has announced its presence at next month’s FTMTA Grass & Muck event will be dominated by a new generation of new 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, round balers and telehandlers. And, in what is Massey Ferguson’s Diamond Anniversary year, examples of the company’s latest mower, rake and tedder models will also be on display at the event near Birr, Co Offaly.

Ready for action at the Gurteen College 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 Ireland 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 Grass & Muck 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.

Another brand-new machine making its debut will be the MF TH.6534 Telescopic handler, with its hydrostatic transmission, 3.4 tonne lift capacity, thanks to 190L/Min hydraulic oil flow and 6.5m lift height capacity, this new telehandler is a serious piece of materials handling kit for any farm, where jobs are plentiful and time is short.
William Judge, Manager, National Sales, Massey Ferguson, UK & Eire says “This is our most versatile and all-encompassing range yet, we are offering customer’s an exciting opportunity to see first-hand the capabilities of our machinery”.
