Massey Ferguson is proud to announce AGCO’s Fuse Technologies fitted to high horsepower MF tractors are now in use across all five continents with the delivery of a new MF 8737 to Australia.
The 370hp (400hp max) flagship tractor from the MF 8700 range has been fitted with AGCO’s Auto-Guide TM 3000 steering system and AgCommand TM telemetry system. It will be used for tillage and controlled traffic farming applications at a large farming enterprise near Melbourne.

Massey Ferguson has dedicated sales and service specialists for Fuse Technologies in Australia, and this tractor joins other high tech units working as far afield as Japan and South America.
