MF 7400 135 - 240 hp

MF 7497 & MF 7499 – two new models launched for Massey Ferguson

MF 7400

Massey Ferguson is proud to announce the launch of two new high hp tractor models, the MF 7497 (225p) and MF 7499 (240hp), topping the highly successful MF 7400 Series.

Equipped with a powerful 7.4L AGCO SISU POWER engine and the ultimate CVT transmission, Dyna-VT (with additional Dynamic Tractor Management system) designed to further enhance fuel efficiency - these two additions to the already impressive MF 7400 line-up are the ideal choice for the professional farmer and contractor for economy, power, efficiency and comfort.

Now incorporating a wider range of 10 models the MF 7400 Series offers class-leading specifications delivering the perfect blend of power, precision and practical technology.

The MF 7400 is a series ahead

Dyna-VT Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) is a standard feature on all MF 7400 Series models, with an optional top speed of 50km/h.

The Supervisor dial allows operators to vary the percentage drop in engine speed due to changes in load, maximising performance in different conditions.

Dyna-VT’s Power Control lever provides smooth forward and reverse shuttling and also changes the speed in both directions by simply pulling a lever.

Pedal Mode provides the option of selecting an automatic operating mode (Power, ECO or Forager) by using the tractor’s pedal to alter the speed.

Information, control and easy operation

Massey Ferguson’s industry-leading information, control and cost management system is optional on all MF models, and is operated via the full-colour GTA Console. GTA100 Communicator software for operating data management and analysis is standard with the GTA Console.

Datatronic III enables automated equipment operation, gathers and records information, and is compatible with ISOBUS, the standard operating system for the agricultural world. Implement manufacturers’ software can be displayed and controlled on the GTA screen, so there is no requirement for an additional terminal.

Offering simple operation from a straightforward main menu, Datatronic III includes an advanced field and headland management tool with manual or automatic programming at the touch of a button.

Valuable operating data can be transferred to the office computer via an SD card where GTA100 Communicator software can be used for managing records, analysing field and tractor data and exporting data to other farm management programs.

GTA100 Communicator provides a user-friendly programme to produce a range of job records which help manage farm operations more efficiently and aid the traceability of farm activities.

Available as an option, GTA200 Record Keeping software enables users to create reports on specific business areas such as fleet management, equipment usage and field planning.

Add a GPS signal to Datatronic 3 and the location of the recorded along with the tractor data. GTA300 (available as an upgrade option) then allows the user to create maps of areas worked plus analysis of tractor performance and field conditions for improved management decisions.



Plenty of power ... and more in reserve

All MF 6400 models feature Tier III engines with common rail injection, four valves/cylinder and electronic control for increased power and torque characteristics, constant idle speed, lower noise and reduced emissions.

Complying with the most stringent emissions legislation, Perkins and AGCO SISU POWER engines ensure that more power and even higher torque are matched perfectly to the job.

The standard ‘Power boost’ automatically provides extra hp to further enhance performance through a second engine curve available at any engine rpm. This means extra hp is available even at low rpm.

In PTO work and transport conditions, extra power is available for increased output and reduced journey time in transport.

The common rail injection system uses an Electronic Control Unit which regulates and optimises injection pressure to match individual operating conditions and loads.

By analysing the engine’s demand more than 100 times a second, the system regulates fuel quantity and injection timing to precisely suit the load. Injection is phased in up to five stages, which is key to reducing emissions while maintaining good fuel economy.

Cooling package on Tier III engines has been redesigned to give better cooling capacity and easier maintenance. 6-cylinder models also have new pivoting radiators for better cleaning access.

Operator Environment

Quiet, comfortable and economical... whatever the task

Life in the tractor cab has never been better thanks to the features on the MF 7400.

The spacious, well-thought out cab has switches and controls grouped by function and information is displayed in either digital, analogue or graphic form.

There is optional manually-adjusted air conditioning or full climate control which retains the memory of the temperature at start-up, automatically maintains a constant temperature and defrosts cab windows in under three minutes.

Air suspension of the dual stage suspended cab optimises ride comfort in different operating conditions and the firmness of ride can be adjusted at the flick of a switch to suit field or road transport conditions.

This award-winning design effectively controls low frequency vibration and, with fewer mechanical links between the cab and transaxle, noise insulation is better too.



Improved comfort, safety and speed

Optional QuadLink is simple and compact, providing increased driver comfort, as well as safety on the road and in the field.

Regardless of front axle load, oscillation or turning angle, the electronic control mechanism automatically maintains a constant suspension height.

QuadLink virtually eliminates fore and aft ‘pitching’ that can build up when travelling at speed, enabling faster transport. In field work, QuadLink reduces shock loads on both tractor and driver, leading to increased comfort for the operator and less component stress and wear for the machine.

With wheels maintaining full contact with the ground for more of the time, front wheel traction is boosted by up to 20% and steering is safer and more positive.

Hydraulics, Linkage & PTO

Be sure to get optimum performance, power and precision

Closed Centre Load Sensing systems with standard oil flow of up to 110 l/min (optional 150 l/min on the MF 7485, 7490 and 7495) enables the precise matching of hydraulic power requirements.

Electronic linkage control is standard for more accuracy, ease-of-use and reliability when employing implements - with a choice of mechanical or up to four electro-hydraulic spool valves.

External spool valve couplers enable equipment to be connected and disconnected under pressure for better implement hook-up, with a choice of electronically controlled PTO options.

Integrated Tractor Control System

Manage your machine the easy way

The Integrated Tractor Control System offers industry-leading field monitoring and tractor management to boost output, improve operation and increase efficiency.

The system’s digital display is mounted to the left of the dashboard and allows operators to manage wheelslip, spool valves and hydraulic flow by prioritising between the linkage and external valves. It also monitors fuel usage and provides basic headland management.

Simple, intuitive operation of the unit uses a touch-sensitive panel which is mounted to the right of the instrument console, here the operator can scroll through menus and select settings shown on the display to the left of the dash.
