A New Era for Straightforward and Dependable Tractors From Massey Ferguson
We began the Massey Ferguson® 8S Series 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 Series.
The MF 8S Series is the recipient of an AE50 Award from the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers for 2022. It is one of only 50 products selected for its remarkable innovation, significant engineering advancement, and impact on its market.
Low cost of operation
Engine efficiency — max power and torque at low engine revs cuts fuel consumption by 10% and reduces noise level. This engine is compliant with Tier 4 Final emissions, using the compact all-in-one (DOC+SCR+SC) aftertreatment system. Unique all-in-one aftertreatment 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 offers 360° visibility. Cab and front axle suspension improve 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.
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
The AGCO Power™ 6-cylinder, 7.4-liter engine is compliant with Tier 4 Final emissions and delivers more power, torque and performance at low rpm, reducing operating costs.
All-in-One Stage V Engines
These comply with strict Stage V emission regulations using Massey Ferguson’s award-winning "All-in-One" system, which includes a straightforward soot catalyst.
Suspended Front Axle
The tractors retain the well-proven standard suspended front axle. Offering a tight 18.7-foot turning radius. Now equipped with suspension lock, it also is equipped with brakes for tractors fitted with all 31-mph transmissions.
The striking "neo-retro’"design pays tribute to the brand’s heritage, illustrated by a new interpretation of the iconic MF gray saber stripe on the side and horse head collar motif on the hood, which dates back to the MF 100 Series.
Control Center Armrest
The Control Center 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 Series Deluxe Package
The Deluxe 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.
MF 8S Series tractors are built on a 10-foot 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 variable speed PTO as standard. Operators can select the right speed for power or economy.
Optional Hydraulic Systems
A 54 gal/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 39 GPM CCLS hydraulic system is an option with a 29 GPM CCLS pump being standard, providing 36% more flow compared with previous series.
Three-point linkage capacity is increased by 7% to 22,000 lbs and, with powerful new hydraulics, these tractors handle and operate large, wider implements.
Front Linkage Option
A new 10,580-lbs. 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.
The MF TaskDoc 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 Massey Ferguson’s full-featured, hands-free steering system, available on new tractors or as an after-market installation. It is capable of delivering precise, high-accuracy movement, increasing the efficiency of your farming.
At the heart of the system is the intuitive Datatronic 5, touchscreen terminal. This does not only manage the tractor functions, but it also allows 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 personalized 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.
