With the introduction of the new MF FL loader Series at the SIMA, Paris show, Massey Ferguson is further extending its leading position in providing the perfect tractor and front loader combination.
Designed and built by the world’s leading loader manufacturer in close co-operation with Massey Ferguson, the MF FL Series handles the most demanding tasks and is available with an advanced in-cab terminal, which includes dynamic weighing.
“The new MF FL range will further strengthen Massey Ferguson’s leading position in the loader tractor market,” says Campbell Scott, Director Marketing Services. “MF FL loaders combine robust operation with improved visibility, durability and reliability. At the same time the new loaders deliver improved suspension and control.”
The MF FL loader range offers an enormous choice, including three new models, ensuring they are a perfect fit for all the latest Massey Ferguson tractors from the MF 4700 through to the MF 8700 Series. They also introduce new, logical model designations, for example: MF FL.4220, denotes a lift height of 4.2m, and 2.0t capacity.
“Massey Ferguson’s strong and agile tractors include many exclusive specialist features, such as multi-function joysticks, unrivalled transmission controls and high hydraulic flowrates, which make them ideal partners for these new loaders,” adds Mr Scott.
The 20 model Massey Ferguson MF FL Series is designed for use with tractors from 75hp to 400hp. The range includes a choice of 16 self-levelling, parallel linkage models with lift heights from 3.5m to 5m and capacities from 1.5t to 3.3t. There are also four non-self levellers, which handle loads of 2,2t to 2.7t and with lift heights from 3.5m to 4m.
A new dealer-installed in-cab terminal option increases loading precision enabling operators to weigh loads, monitor loader positions and receive service reminders as well as control an optional lighting kit.
Three new models join the range: The MF FL.4220 has a lift height of 4.2m and a 2t capacity and provides extra lift height for the new MF 5700 SL Series. For the MF 6700 and latest MF 6700 S tractors is the new MF FL.4621, which can take 2.1t to 4.6m. Another new model, the MF FL.5029, can be mounted on the larger tractors right up to the MF 8700 Series and can lift 2.9t to 5m.
Developed to match the capabilities of modern tractors, the MF FL Series replaces the existing MF 900 Series. Providing greater lifting capacities and between 7cm to 14cm more lift height, they also have a longer reach and wider implement angle to help tip over the sides of increasingly larger farm and truck trailers.
