Massey Ferguson will show off some of its latest, award-winning new products at the show.

Making its debut in the UK is the MF 7719 S, which recently won the ‘Machine of the Year’ award at SIMA show, in Paris. This is part of a new model line-up and represents the flagship model coming into the top of the mid-power range at 190hp.

All are powered by the latest AGCO Power engines to the demanding Stage V emission standard using a straight-forward, maintenance-free system.

The three new models in the range are the 165hp, MF 7716 S; the 180hp MF 7718 S; and the newest model, the 190hp

MF 7719 S. Engine power management tweaks power up by between 20hp to 30hp, depending on model.

The range-topper is equipped with Massey Ferguson’s Dyna-VT, continuously variable transmission, as standard, while rated at 190 hp, there’s another 30hp on tap to meet pto, hydraulic demands and for transport.

In common with the other new MF 7700 S tractors, it can be specified with up to 1.95m diameter, 20.8 R42 tyres for improved traction with low ground pressure.

The Stage V emission regulations are met using MF’s new ‘all in one’ system, which filters down from the MF 5700 S series. This employs the same integrated diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and selective catalytic reduction (SCR), along with the addition of a soot catalyst (SC) within one unit.

The Dyna-6 semi-powershift transmission can now get the Super ECO facility to improve economy. This saves fuel by attaining the maximum 40 km/hr road speed at 1500 rpm and 50 km/hr at 1800 rpm, up to 17 % less than its predecessor.

The award-winning MF Ideal 9T combine will also be on the stand for its first appearance in Scotland. This is a completely new, game-changing combine harvester range designed using requirements taken directly from farmers and operators around the globe.

The range includes three models from 451 to 647hp, and among a host of exceptional new features, is the biggest integral grain-tank capacity available on the European market, the fastest unloading rate and the largest threshing area.

MF is on stand 120, avenue E.

Fendt ideal combine

Dominating the Fendt stand at this year’s show will be the big black Fendt Ideal combine harvester, but while it may dwarf it in size, another important new addition on show will be the 313 Vario tractor, a model still basking in the accolade of ‘Tractor of the Year’ at the recent EIMA show as the ‘Best Utility’ machine.

Generating 133hp, the 313 is the most powerful of the four-model 300 Series and capable of speeds up to 40km/hr.

Moving up the horsepower ranges, show-goers will be able to have a close-up of the 724 and 828 Vario models. Top of the table among the 700s, the 724 puts out 237hp, but manages this with a surprisingly low fuel requirement.

This is due in part to its weight-to-power ratio of just 33kg/hp, which also helps to make it an extremely manoeuvrable tractor for its size.

The Fendt 828 Vario is – at 287hp – the largest of the four 800 Series models, and will be alongside the marque’s comprehensive range of hay and grass machinery, plus Fendt’s four-model range of trailed sprayers. These have tank capacities of between 3500 and 6390 litres and boom widths of 24m, 27m, 28m or 30m.

The Fendt Ideal combine harvester is mirrored on the Massey Ferguson stand (as mentioned).

New Holland celebrates its heritage

Heritage will be a significant theme to this year’s show for New Holland, which is celebrating 60 years since the first yellow combine harvester was sold in the UK.

To mark the occasion, it commissioned a painting by Steven Binks, which will be on display on the stand – and to celebrate 100 years of both Ford and Fiat tractors, there is a special edition of T6.180 Dynamic Command tractor shown in a special livery.

Following the acquisition of Kongskilde Agriculture, the brand now offers a full range of implements for hay and foraging operations that includes a front and rear mounted mowers as well as lateral and central pull trailed versions, mounted and trailed tedders, and side and central delivery rakes in new livery.

New Holland has also entered the tillage business with soil equipment painted in New Holland tractor blue. First introduced was the six-furrow PXV heavy duty fully mounted plough with variable width, as well as the RVM rotary tiller with gear side drive.

Its 6-9m telehandler offering has also recently been expanded, again with a new livery and the TH Series has been extended to six models in 14 versions.

For its tractor parade, New Holland’s T6 range has three new six-cylinder models – the T6.180 Auto Command, the T6.180 Dynamic Command, and the new T6.160 Electro Command that was presented to the public for the first time at SIMA 2019.

New Holland will also have the Dynamic Command tractor simulator running on its stand which will give potential customers the opportunity to operators to try out the latest technology during the event.

New handlers

from JCB

The latest high-productivity materials handling machines from JCB will make their public debut in Scotland at Ingliston.

It will be a first-time out for the JCB TM420, the new highest capacity machine in JCB’s telescopic wheeled loader range, and the first opportunity for many farmers and contractors in Scotland to take a close look at the third-generation Loadall telescopic handlers with their all-new Command Plus cab.

The machines will be exhibited by leading JCB dealers Scot JCB (Stand R257), AM Phillip Agritech (H162) and Kelso and Lothian Harvesters (R235), which between them have branches supplying new JCB machines throughout Scotland and northern England.

The TM420 is a bigger capacity telescopic wheeled loader that delivers a big increase in productivity for larger farms and contractors from having 32% greater lift capacity at 4.1 tonnes, greater lift height at 5.4m, and faster boom operation thanks to JCB’s regenerative hydraulics system, which results in faster loading cycles.

Heavier-duty JCB full-time four-wheel drive axles handle the increased payload, while the 26in wheels and larger tyres optimise both traction and flotation in challenging work situations. A larger hydraulic boom cylinder provides the 4.1 tonnes lift capacity from ground level to full height – a third more than from the high-output TM320S, with power provided by a 145hp JCB EcoMAX diesel engine driving through a proven six-speed JCB powershift transmission.

Balgownie to show off top new Bobcat

Bobcat recently unveiled an expanded range of telescopic loaders for the UK farming market and the new top-of-the-range TL43.80HF Agri model will get its Scottish debut courtesy of Scottish dealer, Balgownie.

This model combines several new features to take lift capacity, lifting height and breakout force to new levels, said the company.

With the new TL43.80HF, Bobcat now has a choice of seven telescopic loader models for the farming market, covering maximum lifting capacities between 2.6 and 4.3 tonnes with lifting heights from 6m to 8m.

Their naming system shows lifting capacity/lifting height performance at a glance, ranging from the TL26.60, TL30.60 and TL30.70 Compact productivity models, through to the TL35.70, TL34.65HF, TL38.70HF and TL43.80HF Productivity and High Flow models

The star of the show with a lift capacity of 4.3 tonne to almost 8 m, the new TL43.80HF is built for intensive loading work and Bobcat claim it is the only machine in this sector that can use a 3500 litre light material bucket, combined this with a Z-bar tilt angle of 152° and a breakout force of 7000kg.

The HF (high flow) technology is a key feature and comes from a class-leading 190 l/min load sensing pump and flow sharing distributor. This is combined with the patented Power Lift system working as a hydraulic booster to lift up to 4300 kg without the boom movement being slowed down.

Three spec’ levels are available:

Agri 1 star has all mandatory equipment to work in a farming environment, such as a fan inverter, steel-belted radial tyres, 40 km/h maximum drive speed, a rotating tow hitch and an electric socket.

Agri 2 star adds an air suspension seat, FNR on the joystick and lever, full halogen work lights, a rear mirror on the tow hitch, a loudspeaker and radio readiness.

while Agri 3 star offers hydraulic attachment locking, auto boom suspension, air conditioning and full LED work lights.

Bobcat’s D34 engine offers enhanced performance and is available in three different sizes – 75hp, 100hp or 130hp, all sharing the same electronic fuel injection, turbo-charger air management and cooled exhaust gas recirculation for lower emissions, without DPF.

There’s also an automatic fan inverter, whereby a cycle time can be set for cleaning radiators and the intake grill.

The TL43.80HF:

Max lifting capacity 4300kg

Max lift height 7500mm

Max horizontal reach 4000mm

Max travel speed 40 km/h

Hydraulic output 190 l/min with flow distributor

Engine Bobcat 130hp

Can-Am is built for the Highlands

The Scottish debut of the Can-Am Outlander 6x6 450 T will be on the company’s stand at the show, No 32 on Avenue T.

This is powered by a 38 hp single-cylinder, liquid-cooled Rotax 450 engine and comes with industry-leading towing capacity 750 kg, front and rear racks with cargo extenders, and the popular LinQ accessory attachment points.

Its CVT gearing is specially tailored for work, and for added safety, engine braking automatically reduces the speed of the ATV when going downhill.

An extra low L-gear also makes it easier for the rider to manoeuvre the ATV when pulling a trailer or driving in deep mud.

The Visco-Lok system front differential system requires no buttons to push or levers to be held in order to engage it and once the 6x6 option is selected, the system intelligently transfers power from the slipping front wheel to the opposing wheel with traction.

The Can-Am Outlander 6x6 450 T will be joined by Can-Am’s other workhorse agricultural all terrain (ATV) and side by side vehicles (SSV) on its stand at the Highland.

These models will include the Can-Am Outlander 450 Standard, the Can-Am Outlander 570 PRO, and the Can-Am Traxter HD8.
