AGCO’s agricultural equipment manufacturing brand Massey Ferguson has showcased its new 5700 Global Series mid-range tractors at the 2019 Sunbelt Ag Expo.

The two tractor models – MF5710D and MF5711D, with 100HP and 110HP, respectively – also feature Dyna-4 transmission, designed to increase the efficiency of loader work, hay production and general on-the-farm use.

Operators of the MF5710D and MF5711D are claimed to benefit from the large and quite cab in the 100-to-110-hp tractor class. The suspension is claimed to offer a smooth ride to the operator. The cab also includes swiveling air-ride seat and a tilt-and-telescoping steering column for optimum operator comfort.

The optional see-through Visio roof offers above-cab visibility. It is popular among loader operators who need more visibility when stacking bales. The tractor’s sloped, low-profile hood and slim exhaust profile offer a clear view for any task.

Massey Ferguson added Auto-Drive as a standard feature in the two models

The company has made Auto-Drive as a standard in the two new models, where the speed-matches the transmission to shift automatically at 1,500rpm in Eco mode for transport and light applications. In Power mode, auto-shift takes place at 2,100rpm, making it convenient in field applications.

The manufacturing brand believes that operators, who need to frequently stop when round balling, will appreciate the Brake to Neutral feature. The feature operates the clutch as soon as the brake pedal is pressed, stopping the tractor with no other action needed.

When operators need to move at extremely low speeds, the 32 X 32 creeper gear option provides speeds as low as 0.06mph.

A combination power shuttle and power control lever on the left side of the steering column has been added, allowing the operator to change direction, change gears and de-clutch the tractor with the left hand.

The feature comes handy when operating the loader joystick or rear remote controls with the right hand. Operators can also adjust the settings within the system information screen, with Comfort Control, to fine-tune how aggressively directional changes and DynaShift changes to take place.

Massey Ferguson tactical marketing manager Brian Celli said: “Today’s producers want durable, reliable tractors that help them do more in a day, more easily.

“We’ve added a premium, clutchless transmission to our popular 5700 Global Series tractors to give our customers another option to help them get their work done more efficiently.”

The hydraulic system on the tractors has two high-pressure pumps, one with a standard flow rate of 11 gallons per minute (gpm) to the rear three-point linkage and the other with 15gpm to the remote valves and the loader.

An in-cab switch combines the flow from both pumps for 26gpm flow for quick response times for loader and auxiliary hydraulics to help get the work done.
