Technology & Innovation
8.4 Litre AGCO POWER 6 Cylinder Engine
These engines generate power from 270 to 405 hp.
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’.
Dyna-VT offers stepless travel from 0.03 to 40 or 50 km/h at any engine speed, operated via two speed ranges.
Fitted with an engine speed ‘Supervisor’ which automatically reduces forward speed to maintain full engine power by maintaining engine speed, whatever the job in hand.
Multipad Joystick - MF 8700 S Exclusive Models
The Command Control armrest, and the Multipad joystick, are part of the package that makes these tractors, despite their power, so easy to control with precision. A multitude of functions can be controlled in the palm of your hand.
Minimum Weight of 10.8 T
With a minimum weight of just 10.8t, the MF 8700 S Series tractors are up to 4t lighter than others in this class. This allows them to tread lightly for top work and transport.
With the continuously-variable Dyna-VT transmission, AGCO engineers have developed a system of power transfer that sets a new benchmark for ease-of-use and precision.
Dynamic Tractor Management
For control and comfort Dynamic Tractor Management (DTM) works with Dyna-VT and automatically controls engine and transmission when activated. DTM handles engine speed to maintain forward speed and minimise engine revs without losing power.
Engine Power Management - 30 HP Boost
These tractors have the considerable benefit of Engine Power Management (EPM), which gives the capability of up to a 30hp-plus power boost, plus extra torque, whenever that bit extra is needed.
Efficient Package as Standard
Efficient is the entry specification package for the MF 8700 S Series but you will notice that it is anything but basic. It provides all the key elements, with all key functions ergonomically grouped in the Control Command Centre armrest.
New Dashboard with SIS
The slim dashboard design provides for quick, clear and easy analysis of operating data, presented on a 70mm x 52mm colour screen – the Setup and Information Screen (SIS).
Best-in-class features in the ‘Panorama’ cab offer the highest levels of comfort, quietness, visibility, space, access and technology. This spacious, four-post cab ensures operators work in superb comfort with exceptional visibility and control.
This level, with its more advanced features, aims to cater for more intensive, larger-scale operations seeking cost-effective benefits for the business.
Air-Suspended Operator seat
The level of cab suspension damping can be set in from the cab, to meet the driver’s preference. Paired with a premium-class air-suspended operator’s seat, the result is one of the most comfortable rides around.
Quadlink Suspension System
The Quadlink system, which can be switched on and off, uses hydraulic accumulators acting on the front axle to dampen ride over rough roads and fields, and improve comfort and safety on transport applications.
Rear Linkage Capacity - 12000kg
With a rear linkage lift capacity of 12,000 kg, there are few tractors in this power bracket that can match the MF 8700 S series for the ability to hoist heavy implements.
Reassuring, fade-free braking comes courtesy of oil-immersed, power-assisted disc brakes, while air brakes for trailed equipment are an option.
PTO Speed Control
In PTO applications, the Dyna-VT transmission enables the operator to select precisely the tractor speed with a fixed engine speed engaged, so you will always achieve a perfect match for your PTO applications.
PTO Speed Options
MF 8700 S tractors can be specified with a fully-independent 540 Eco/1000 rpm PTO, or 1000/1000 Eco speeds. External engagement and emergency stop buttons provide convenience and safety.
This new, optional feature enables the operator to adjust the steering ratio and select the optimum number of turns of the steering wheel required for a given amount of steering angle turns.
The rear hitch with a choice of pintle pin, pick-up hitch, clevis, K80 ball or drawbar has been completely redesigned to make coupling quicker, easier and safer.
MF 8700 S Tyre Options
The latest tyre equipment allows MF 8700 S models to work at very low tyre pressures, even for high traction jobs, including dual wheels with rear tyre choice up to 900mm and 2.15m diameter for better power transfer to the ground.
Fingertip Spool Valve Management System
The Fingertip Spool Valve Management System enables complex equipment to be controlled with ease and precision, and the flows to be managed precisely.
ELECTRONIC LINKAGE CONTROL - ELC
The industry leading ELC is provided as standard. The system provides precise and responsive control of linkage functions ensuring accurate management of working depth for soil engaging implements plus working height for other implements.
Up to Eight Electrohydraulic Spool Valves
Standard specification comprises four electrohydraulic spool valves, with up to eight available if required. (6 rear spool valves with 2 front spool valves)
Fully Integrated 5000kg Front Linkage
At the front, buyers can specify a fully-integrated 5,000 kg front linkage designed to match the Massey Ferguson front suspension, with two doubleacting spool valves and a free return line.
Available from factory or via AGCO Parts with additional front, rear and tyre weights to exactly match your needs.
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.
Available as an option on Efficient and Exclusive models, Datatronic 5 gathers and stores data on both tractor and precision farming setting. In addition, the terminal can be used to control MF Auto Guide, ISOBUS and cameras.
The new Fieldstar 5 terminal is designed in order to create a more intuitive Precision Farming experience, providing a system that delivers a straightforward an easy to use experience, improving efficiency, productivity and profitability.
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.
MF Connect service enables you — and your dealer — to coordinate, optimize and seamlessly connect your fleet, to better manage maintenance and remotely monitor equipment in the field.

Customer Reviews & Testimonials
A Massey Ferguson 8730 S tractor used for a range of tasks on a large Lincolnshire farming estate is proving even more economical than its users had expected.
As the other halves of Killen Bros Contracting, these girls are no strangers to hard work or the odd challenge! The girls are all working day jobs, raising families and keeping houses whilst making sure that all the team at Killen Bros Contracting are kept fed and organised.
“Having relied for many years on individual tractors for specific tasks, we now have a versatile tractor which has already proved itself ideal for ploughing, subsoiling, heavy cultivations and drilling, and which was also used for corn carting during harvest when a smaller tractor wasn't available."
“We like the Masseys as a brand because they give us great value for money, and we find them very good on fuel,” Richard reports. “Also, the warranty package is brilliant. We all find them comfortable to drive and they have all the features we need to achieve maximum efficiency.”
“We get more done in fewer hours than we have in the past,” he states. “On the grass, for example, we can get through 30 acres in an hour, while with the plough we've found we can get through 5 acres an hour. This is quite important, as it has a significant effect on the tractor's residual value when the time comes.”
“There's nothing about them that's not to like. They're not heavy tractors, even though they might look like they are, and they're a dream to drive and terrific for road work. The settings on the transmission are nothing short of brilliant,” states Steve.
