Powerful Tractors

Massey Ferguson introduced the 7700 Series tractors, featuring 6.6 and 7.4-liter AGCO Power diesel engines. Five models range from 185 to 255 hp, with two transmission options: the Dyna-6 Partial Powershift or the Dyna-VT CVT. The Engine Power Management system delivers a power boost of up to 25 hp. Additional enhancements include a new engine control unit, new throttle valve, higher-pressure fuel injection system and new CYCLAIR cooling package. When towing heavy loads on the road, the front suspension provides greater steering control at higher speeds. Push-button control lets operators adjust suspension to match the task at hand. The 7700 Series can be ballasted to over 30,000 pounds. All models feature fully integrated Auto-Guide 3000, with Go Mode activation. The new front dash display features a color setup and information screen that is 50 percent larger with 10 times greater resolution and larger fonts., 877-525-4384 l
