A New Era for Straightforward and Dependable tractors from Massey Ferguson
We began the MF 8S project with a blank page. At the heart of it was the global ‘Voice of the Customer’ study; an in-depth, one-to-one interview with customers and operators in several countries across the globe.
Key feedback from you, the customer, underlined the need for comfort, ease of use, value for money, excellent reliability, intuitive and convenient controls, efficiency transmitting maximum power to the ground, 100% connectivity and the ability to work with the most demanding implements.
It was an exciting and inspirational project for all those involved and an opportunity to build on Massey Ferguson’s strong heritage of straightforward, dependable machines.
The result: a Massey Ferguson tractor for a new era. The MF 8S.
Efficient drive-lines bring higher productivity and efficiency
New Dyna-7 powershift transmissions and Dyna E-Power dual clutch transmission offering speed change in the best comfort in its class. Both transmissions come with Engine Power Management to deliver more power when it’s needed most. Perfect engine/transmission combinations provide maximum output and more power efficiency reducing power loss by up to 26%.
Low cost of operation
Engine efficiency - max power and torque at low engine revs cuts fuel consumption by 10% and reduces noise level. Unique All-In-one Stage V after Treatment for the best visibility and minimum maintenance. Easy access to daily maintenance. MFCare Repair and maintenance contract schemes.
The next level of space, comfort, ergonomy and connectivity
The quietest cab on the market with a noise level of only 68dB offering 360° visibility. Cab and front axle suspension improves driving comfort while the new MF vDisplay Digital dashboard provides all needed information at a glance. The new armrest offers best in class control of all the tractor’s operations.
Ability to work faster with the most demanding implements
Up to five* spool valves to the rear and three to the front, including front linkage, and Power Beyond installation, plus a high lift capacity hitch. The hydraulic system offers the ability to work faster with the widest implements while increasing versatility. *Up to four spool valves available with pick-up hitch.
Straightforward, smart, sustainable farming technologies
New Datatronic 5 and optional Fieldstar 5 terminal provide the latest user friendly precision farming package.
Technology & Innovation
Engine Power Management - 20 HP Boost
These tractors have the considerable benefit of Engine Power Management (EPM), which gives the capability of up to a 20 hp-plus power boost, plus extra torque, whenever that bit extra is needed.
MF 8S Engines
Latest Stage V AGCO Power 6-cylinder / 7.4 litre engines deliver more power, torque, and performance at low rpm reducing operating costs.
The Dyna E-Power, is the ultimate dual clutch technology, stepless shifting raising comfort, maximum power to the ground due to the mechanical conception and the best fuel efficiency in its class
Dyna-7 offers efficient operation of a total of 28 forward and reverse speeds in four ranges and seven seamless gears. This cost-effective transmission delivers smooth and intuitive operation in manual mode or can even be operated fully automatically.
All-in-One Stage V Engines
These comply with the strict Stage V emission regulations using Massey Ferguson’s award-winning ‘All-in-One’ system, which now includes a straightforward ‘soot catalyst’.
Suspended Front Axle
The tractors retain the well-proven standard suspended front axle. Offering a tight, 5.7m turning radius. Now equipped with suspension lock, it also equipped with brakes for tractors fitted with all 50km/hr transmissions.
The striking ‘neo-retro’ design pays tribute to the brand’s heritage, illustrated by a new interpretation of the iconic MF grey sabre stripe on the side and horse head collar motif on the bonnet, which dates back to the MF 100 series.
Control Centre Armrest
The new Control Centre armrest fitted with the latest easy-to-use MultiPad lever provides complete fingertip control. This ISOBUS compatible lever operates all the tractor functions and includes an integral micro-joystick to control two spool valves.
MF 8S Exclusive Package
The Exclusive specification is a comprehensive package providing operators with exceptional comfort and ease of use as well as genuine performance enhancing features to increase productivity and efficiency.
The distinctive Protect-U design completely insulates the cab from noise, heat, and vibrations. With noise levels of just 68dB, it is one of the quietest in the market and, with an interior volume of 3.4m³, it is also one of the most spacious.
Massey Ferguson MF 8S Series tractors are built on a 3.05m wheelbase that provides stability and improves traction when working with wide, demanding implements, offering up to nearly 10% more traction power.
All models come with a four-speed PTO as standard, providing a choice of 540, 540ECO, 1,000 or 1,000ECO, which means operators can always select the right speed for power or economy.
Optional Hydraulic Systems
A 205 litre/min flow is an option, which can also be supplied as an ECO version, generating the flow at 1,650rpm (230l/min at max at rated engine speed). Up to five electronic rear spool valves can be specified.
Load-Sensing Hydraulic System
A 150 litre/min closed-centre, load-sensing hydraulic system is standard, providing 36% more flow compared with the previous system.
Three-point linkage capacity is increased by 7% to 10,000kg and, with powerful new hydraulics, these tractors handle and operate large, wider implements.
Front Linkage Option
A new 4,800kg capacity front linkage option, fully integrated into the tractor, comes with the option of an ISOBUS socket.
MF Section Control
With the fully automatic Section Control for ISOBUS implements, operators can apply seeds, fertilizer or Crop protection products without overlapping. This prevents double treatment and areas worked outside of the field edges.
MF Task Doc
The MF Task Doc system has a real place in the future of agriculture, helping farmers to become more productive through the knowledge brought by putting precision-measured data at the business owner’s fingertips.
MF Guide is MF’s full featured, hands free steering system, available on new tractors or as an after-market installation. It is capable of delivering sub-metre, decimetre and centimetre accuracy, increasing the efficiency of your farming.
At the heart of the system is the intuitive Datatronic 5, touch-screen terminal, this does not only manage the tractor functions, but it allows a complete control of all ISOBUS compatible implements.
An optional Fieldstar 5 terminal can be used to manage all of the relevant MF Technologies. It now also records the field boundaries and provides automatic field detection.
The MF vDisplay digital dashboard shows all the tractor information at a glance. Easy to read and with intuitive operation, its clear display can be personalised and changed by simply scrolling through settings with a rotary knob by the steering wheel.
A new antenna rail, positioned at the front of the cab, enables easy mounting of a choice of GPS receivers up to RTK precision. For security and risk avoidance, the antenna is locked in place with a key as standard.
