Compact, powerful, and versatile

Five four-cylinder tractors, from 135hp to 180hp (150hp to 200hp with EPM) in the MF 6S Series offer the same outstanding performance characteristics as the MF 6700 S Series, which they replace. Like their predecessors, the new MF 6S Series delivers the power and torque of a larger six-cylinder, but with all the benefits of a smaller tractor.

 

Supreme cab comfort and control

With the MF 6S Series Massey Ferguson is introducing superior comfort and enhanced control. New air conditioning keeps the cab cooler, while other changes now make it also a quieter (70dBA) workplace.

They also gain substantial new features, controls, and connectivity, first introduced on the pioneering MF 8S Flagship, which not only won the Tractor of Year 2021, but has recently received a prestigious Red Dot: Product Design 2021 Award.

Operators benefit from a new, more comfortable, standard air-suspended seat. A heated seat option, with real leather trim and improved ventilation, is equipped with DDS – Dynamic Damping System with lateral stability suspension that responds automatically to the severity of the bumps.

For Exclusive and Efficient versions, there is also a new armrest, which is linked to the seat, containing everything operators need to operate the engine, transmission, hydraulics, linkage and PTO as well as switches for the radio and phone.

Further improving comfort is the optional mechanical or active mechanical cab suspension, as well as the suspended front axle option.

Loader operators will welcome the Visio Roof option, which greatly improves vision for handling work, providing a clear view of the load through the lift range.

 

Comprehensive single lever control

All main tractor functions are run from a single new Multipad, ISOBUS-compatible controller. This easy-to-use lever includes a new linkage control rocker switch, cruise settings, driving mode pre-sets and MF Guide activation. It also houses a micro joystick to control two electric spool valves.

Another, unique, multifunction joystick option offers simple, convenient control of the optional loader or front linkage. This not only operates the spool valves, but also enables operators to change direction and control the tractor speed.

 

Touch-screen operation

Significant changes to the modern Datatronic 5 terminal not only increase functionality, but also make it easier to use. With its brighter, new 9” touch-screen’s anti-glare surface, it provides easy access to new short-cut keys.

With its tablet style operation, it enables operators to access and change settings quickly and easily. It not only manages all the tractor functions but also all MF Technologies including MF Guide, with its fast set up ‘Go Mode’ function, as well as MF Section and MF Rate Control as well as MF Task Doc data.

New for Exclusive and Efficient versions is a new option that enables the radio and mobile phone and play media be operated through the Datatronic 5 screen.

Also new is the MF E-Loader option that helps to increase loading accuracy, productivity and safety and provides control and setting of the new Bucket Shake facility. This enables operators to weigh individual fork or bucket loads and record the total weights of each item, load or job and these can be transferred as a simple spreadsheet.

For further operating flexibility there is also the updated Fieldstar 5 terminal option, which enables operators to run all the smart farming operations on a separate screen.

 

Powerful engine performance

All MF 6S tractors are powered by the latest technology AGCO Power engines, which deliver maximum powers from 135hp to 180hp, with a power boost of between 15hp or 20hp, depending on model. Torque also rises with the boost – by up to 40Nm on the largest MF 6S 180.

Massey Ferguson’s renowned ‘All-in-One’ SCR system ensures the engines meet the strict Stage V emissions regulations. Tucked neatly under the cab, this maintenance-free system has no impact on visibility or performance.

 

Top transmission choice

Top transmission choice on all models includes seamless shifting from the Dyna-VT Super Eco, or the renowned Massey Ferguson Dyna-6 Super-Eco, semi-powershift with AutoDrive. Designed and built ‘in-house’, the transmissions – well proven and improved for more than 20 years – are a perfect match with the AGCO Power engines, producing the most effective and efficient combination the market.

Both transmissions come with the unique MF Power Control lever on the left-hand side of the steering column, which provides clutchless shuttling, with an adjustable response. It also shifts speeds up or down and selects neutral.

Dyna-VT continuously variable transmissions are now equipped with a new Automatic Mode. Simply activated with a switch on the armrest, auto mode allows the operator to adjust forward speed with the Multipad lever or the foot pedal, while the engine speed is automatically regulated according to the load and speed. The hand throttle now also sets a lower engine speed limit – with rpm never dropping below this limit.

The new Super Eco version of the Dyna-VT reduces fuel consumption by achieving 40km/hr at just 1,450rpm.

Proven in the field for more than 20 years, Massey Ferguson’s renowned, highly efficient, and reliable Dyna-6 Super Eco 24 x 24 semi-powershift transmission, achieves a top speed of 40km/hr at a low 1,500rpm and saves fuel. AutoDrive, standard on all models, automatically shifts speeds relative to the engine load and speed. Operators can also manually set the engine rpm at which changes are made.

Those working in specialist crops will welcome is the Super Creeper option, which provides precise control with speeds down to 70m/hr at 1,400m/s.

All MF 6S tractors also provide the useful brake-to-neutral function, which also disengages drive when the brakes are applied.

 

Strength with agility

Built on strong foundations and a 2.67m wheelbase, the MF 6S Series’ compact dimensions make the tractors highly manoeuvrable, with a turning radius of just 4.75m – the tightest available from any 200hp tractor.

Weighing 400kg less than their six-cylinder equivalents, coupled with the powerful engines, the tractors offer the best-in-class power-to-weight ratio. As well as delivering high performance with optimum economy, the tractors tread lightly helping to protect the soil.

They are also immensely strong for their size, able to handle and handle heavy payloads with a Gross Vehicle Weight of up to 12,500kg. A substantial Gross Combination Weight of 44.5t means they can also safely and legally* haul heavy loaded trailers. (* depending on local road laws).

With up to 9,600kg rear linkage capacity and powerful, 110 litre/min closed-centre load-sensing hydraulics, the tractors will handle and operate a wide range of large, modern implements with ease. For those requiring more flow there is a 150 litre/min option Dyna-6 models, while Dyna-VT tractors, come with a 190 litre/min option.

For optimum traction and soil protection the MF 6S.165 and MF 6S.180 can be specified with the latest Michelin VF650/60R42 rear tyres.

 

Loader specialist

With their light weight, great visibility, compact dimensions, 4.75m turning radius, Power Control left-hand shuttle lever and Brake-to-Neutral, the MF 6S Series are the perfect loader partners. To further improve loading performance, they can also be equipped with a range of output and comfort enhancing features including the 150 litre/min or 190 litre/min hydraulic options and Visio Roof, that enables operators to see the load through the lift range.

The unique Multifunction joystick makes it simple to control the loader, also providing another shuttle option, as well as the ability to adjust the tractor speed.

A new bucket ‘shake’ facility automatically operates spool valves to assist filling and emptying the bucket or fork. Further easing operation is the new E-Loader option for tractors equipped with a Datatronic 5 terminal.

Selected MF 6S Series models can come equipped with an integrated, factory-fitted loader sub-frame, along with an MF FL Series loader already fitted.
