A RANGE of new tackle, including everything for its latest tractors, to balers and telehandlers, will be on show on the Massey Ferguson stand at Lamma.

It's not an exaggeration to say that MF has been on a bit of a new product offensive in recent months, especially at the Agritechnica event in Hanover at the end of 2017, and that Euro show provides the inspiration for the UK debutantes.

LAMMA will also be used as the launch pad for a comprehensive range of Massey Ferguson Services along with MF's new ‘Diamond’ added-value offers and promotions. The special ‘Diamond’ offers are part of a year-long plan to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Massey Ferguson.

From the tractor stable, Massey Ferguson's ‘S’ Series will be the stars. The 'S' designation means high-spec' and these all have freshw styling, the option of the new Fieldstar 5 touchscreen terminal and a host of new standard features for comfort, efficiency and safety.

While all new high-spec' Beauvais-built tractor ranges will ultimately carry the suffix ‘S’ in the model number, on show on the stand will be the 270-400hp MF 8700 S, 140-280hp MF 7700 S, 120-200hp MF 6700 S and 100-130hp MF 5700 S ranges. The 95hp MF 5709 S is a new model at the lower end of the MF 5700 S range with a choice of either Dyna-4 or Dyna-6 transmissions.

Also, the MF 5700 Global range is being extended with the launch of the new 85hp MF 5708 and 95hp MF 5709 models, which come with Dyna-4 as standard, plus the option of cab suspension.

Fruit and orchard users will also be able to see the latest MF 3700 Series, which has widths from 1.1m to 2.2m, including a new wider fruit model for greater stability.

The much heralded multi-brand Ideal combine harvesters (shared with Fendt) will also be at the show. This new-generation combine harvester range have the biggest integral grain-tank capacity now available on the European market, the fastest unloading rate and the largest threshing area. A limited release of the new combines is scheduled for 2018 with full roll-out in 2019.

Chasing them up the swath will be MF's latest RB round balers, a series of five models with fixed and variable-chamber units.

For those wanting something with higher capacity, the UHD large square baler range has the addition of

the MF 2370 UHD – reckoned to be the highest performing large square baler ever built at the world-renowned Hesston factory in the US. This flagship model makes the highest density bales, weighing 20% more than those produced by the current 'biggie'.

Two new mounted vertically-folding disc mowers in the MF DM TL-V Series will be launched. These can have either the KC tine or RC roller conditioning units and there's a choice of 3.1m and 3.6m working widths.

As already featured in The SF, also new from MF is the TH.7030 telehandler, which can lift three tonnes to 7m and yet remains in the semi-compact telehandler sector.
