High performance in the yard and field
The MF 5S Series includes five models from 105hp to 145hp. All come with a choice of Exclusive, Efficient, Panoramic or Essential specifications, which offer a range of performance enhancing features to suit all types of farms and applications.
Power for all is delivered by the latest AGCO Power 4.4-litre, four-cylinder engine that meets the latest Stage V emissions regulations with the unique ‘All in One’ SCR technology, designed for the life of the tractor.
MF 5S Series tractors are available with either the Dyna-4 or Dyna-6 semi-powershift transmission, both with Automatic Mode. A helpful Brake-to-Neutral feature disengages drive when the brakes are applied.
Ultimate loader tractor
The MF 5S Series are ultimate loader tractors – offering industry-leading manoeuvrability, excellent visibility, down to just 4m over the slim, steep-nosed bonnet, as well as efficient, high-flow hydraulics delivering up to 110 litres/min.
Loading operations are made much easier thanks to the new joystick, excellent transmission controls as well as Brake-to-Neutral. To improve visibility and safety, the Visio Roof option provides a clear view of the attachment through the whole lifting range.
Cabs on all MF 5S Series models are equipped to a high specification, with Exclusive and Efficient models, coming with a new armrest. First seen on the award-winning MF 8S range, this houses the Multipad joystick that controls a number of functions including forward/reverse shuttle, linkage and spool valves.
Top field performance
High performance out in the field is ensured thanks to the robust three-point linkage, which can lift up to 6,000kg – 14% more than the previous models.
There is also the latest integrated front linkage. Developed for mounting with the new suspended axle, it helps maintain the industry-leading 4m turning radius. With its increased capacity from 2,500kg to 3,000kg, the front linkage enables operators to improve efficiency by employing larger, wider implements.
Thanks to its impressive 9.5t Gross Vehicle Weight, which is 12% higher than before, the MF 5S can also safely carry and handle larger loads.
MF 5S Series can be fully connected with MF Connect telemetry an option on all. A new Geofencing function improves logistics management and security by sending alerts to smart phones and devices if and when machines exit or enter pre-defined areas.
Massey Ferguson’s Datatronic 5 terminal is standard on Exclusive models and an option on Efficient. This ISOBUS compatible, touch-screen operator information station monitors all the tractor functions and controls any ISOBUS compliant implement.
Datatronic 5 can also run MF Technologies’ precision farming functions, including MF Guide automatic steering, as well as MF Section Control and the latest MF Rate Control, which can now handle and manage up to 96 sections, three booms and five products.
Pre-installed MF TaskDoc software is used to create field records, as applied maps, log fuel use, make job reports as well as keep an accurate account of all inputs to every hectare.
