Massey Ferguson, a worldwide brand of AGCO (NYSE:AGCO), is unveiling key new products at the 2017 SIMA Show in Paris, underlining its strategy to offer a full line of farm machinery to customers through its distribution network.
As part of an impressive showcase of equipment featuring its strongest-ever line-up, every product on the MF stand is new to the SIMA show. Kept under wraps until the opening day of the exhibition is the enhanced MF 8700 Series featuring Massey Ferguson’s most powerful tractor ever in the shape of the mighty 400hp MF 8740. Other brand-new equipment spearheading the Massey Ferguson advance includes a new CornFlow maize header for models from the MF combine range, new materials handling tools, new Precision Farming packages and a new award-winning prototype tractor/implement linkage solution from the Massey Ferguson Advanced Research team. The farm machinery firm is also presenting some of the results of its work with two other leading France-based companies, Michelin and Grégoire Besson on reducing soil compaction and improving traction in hard field conditions.
