Massey Ferguson Unveils 7600 Series High-Horsepower Tractors

DULUTH, Ga. (August 11, 2011) — Massey Ferguson® proudly introduces the all-new Massey Ferguson 7600 Series High-Horsepower Row Crop Tractors to North American producers in search of a versatile, hardworking tractor that combines technology with exceptional comfort features. These new mid-frame row crop tractors are modeled after the highly advanced and popular Massey Ferguson 8600 Series and replace the 6400 and 7400 Series. Four completely new models ranging from 170 to 225 engine horsepower (140 to 180 PTO HP) give producers more choices in power, productivity and comfort from Massey Ferguson.

“The all-new Massey Ferguson 7600 Series is further testament to our unwavering commitment to today’s producers and their varied needs,” explains Mike Alvin, product marketing manager for high-horsepower tractors. “This new Series offers some significant enhancements in the areas of power, emissions compliance, versatility and comfort. From tillage and planting work to harvesting, baling and loader work, producers are sure to be impressed by how easily the capabilities of these tractors match the tasks at hand.”

Emissions “Compliance Without Compromise”

The 7600 Series boasts some of the most innovative technology you’ll find today. The new Series is powered by Tier IV interim emissions-compliant AGCO POWER™ diesel engines with e3™ selective catalytic reduction (SCR) clean-air technology for improved emissions, minimal maintenance and exceptional fuel consumption. AGCO’s new Generation 2 e3 SCR system incorporates a catalytic converter and diesel oxidation catalyst that work with the tractor’s engine to maximize efficiency and simplify maintenance. This approach provides the most innovative and functional SCR system in the agriculture market today and offers owners best-in-class total fluid usage.

With a choice of Dyna-6 (24-speed, partial-powershift) or Dyna-VT™ (CVT) transmissions, plus redesigned cabs that offer a wide-angle view and superior operator comforts, these machines are designed to make a long day of work more enjoyable. To make the most of the CVT transmission, Dynamic Tractor Management (DTM) provides greater communication between the engine and gearbox so that the engine speed can automatically adjust to the load for more consistent power to the ground and improved fuel efficiency.

“Time is a valuable commodity for today’s producer, and we designed these tractors with that in mind,” adds Alvin. “By creating a versatile tractor that incorporates new technology with the performance to enhance productivity, we’ve built an innovative machine that lives up to our customers’ expectations, as well as EPA standards.”

SCR is widely regarded as the most efficient and well-designed engineering answer to meet new exhaust emission rules, and Massey Ferguson’s innovative lead is one that virtually every other major manufacturer is now following. Unlike the alternatives, it does not require any additional valves, extra turbochargers, expanded cooling packages or extensive changes to existing engine designs. It also does not employ any complex internal engine components or external filter housings and is nearly maintenance free. 

SCR technology allows these AGCO POWER engines to run better, stay cooler and last longer. The 7600 Series comes with large 114-gallon-capacity diesel fuel and 11-gallon diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) tanks to allow for longer periods of work between refueling.

Greater Comfort and Improved Control

New for the 7600 Series is the inclusion of an OptiRide™ Plus cab suspension system. This unique cab suspension system relays information through an electronic control unit to automatically adjust the cab suspension to control bounce, rolling and pitching for a comfortable ride in the field or down the road.

Inside the redesigned cab, a right-hand Control Armrest, new Multipad control and new Multi-function Joystick provide easy-to-reach, fingertip control and ergonomic design that are comfortable for the operator to use. A new Datatronic CCD display offers greater performance and functionality and increased legibility so producers can accurately monitor and adjust tractor and implement settings.
