Massey Ferguson’s new 5S series offers five models from 105 to 145hp.

Massey Ferguson has announced the introduction of five new models from 105hp to 145hp in its MF 5S Series, which continues the brand’s striking new era design and enhanced operator experience introduced on the advanced MF 8S Series.

With best-in-class visibility and industry-leading 4m turning radius, the narrowest steep-nosed bonnet and practical features the tractors are claimed to be supreme loader tractors. Their greater payload and higher linkage capacity make them powerful performers in the field and on the road.

All models are equipped with four-cylinder engines, offering maximum powers from 105hp up to a new range topping 145hp model. There’s a choice of three levels of specification – Essential, Efficient and Exclusive – plus a range of options including outstanding control from the latest easy-to-use Smart Farming technology.

Exclusive models are “fully loaded”, including, among other options, 110 lit/min hydraulics with up to eight electric spool valves, hydraulic joystick, Multipad control, AutoDrive transmission, auto air-con, cab suspension, Superluxe air suspended seat and Datatronic 5 touch-screen terminal.

Efficient specification is similar, but has two electric and two mechanical spools at the rear, standard air-con and an air-suspended seat, while the Datatronic 5 terminal becomes an option.

Essential models switch to using a T-lever gear control in place of the Multipad, with the hydraulic joystick an option and AutoDrive replaced by Speedmatching on the Dyna-4 transmission. It has a 58 lit/min hydraulic pump and two rear mechanical spool valves – up to four as an option.

The high levels of visibility with the 5S cab help make the tractor ideal for loader use.

With its compact dimensions, 2.55m wheelbase, superb visibility, high hydraulic flow and control, the MF 5S further builds on Massey Ferguson’s renowned reputation as the leading loader specialist. All models can be supplied loader ready, or now come equipped with a factory-fitted loader from the MF FL Series.

Massey Ferguson not only supplies a wide range of parallel and non-parallel lifting loaders in its MF FL range, these can also be supplied factory fitted to the MF 5S. This useful option includes a sub-frame, dedicated pipework and mechanical or electronic joysticks to fully integrate the loader into the tractor. This helps maintain the outstanding manoeuvrability even when fitted with the optional front linkage.

For arable and mixed farming operations, MF 5S tractors offer a host of output enhancing features. Rear linkage lift capacity is increased to 5,700kg across the range, and up to 6,000kg in some specific circumstances, while the new, stronger front linkage capacity is increased from 2,500kg to an impressive 3,000kg. Coupled with a higher, 9,500kg Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW), this allows the tractors to safely handle wider implements to improve workrates.

Latest Smart Farming technology further improves output and efficiency with easy to use precision farming features, including MF Connect telemetry, MF Guide auto-steering, MF Section Control and MF Rate Control.

All MF 5S Series models are equipped with a high-specification cab that keeps operators in optimum comfort. A new HVAC air system enhances air distribution, enabling operators to not only set and maintain the most comfortable temperature, but it also reduces demisting and defrosting times.

On Exclusive and Efficient tractors a new armrest, as used in the recently launched flagship MF 8S range, houses the Multipad joystick. This provides control of a number of functions including forward/reverse shuttle, linkage and spool valves.

The Multipad can also be equipped with a micro joystick to operate two rear spool valves (or any other spool valve when Datatronic 5 is fitted). Loaders are operated by a separate joystick that sits alongside the Multipad. While on tractors with Datatronic 5, the screen is placed conveniently to the right of the console.

There new Massey Ferguson 5S tractors offer a choice of three levels of specification – Essential, Efficient and Exclusive.

Essential tractors come with a shorter armrest, with the transmission operated by a small T-lever to the side and separate levers for the spool valves. On loader tractors the joystick is mounted at the front of the armrest.

Latest Agco Power 4.4 litre, four cylinder engines meet Stage V emissions regulations with straightforward MF All-in-One technology. This elegant answer is designed for the tractor’s lifetime, helping to cut maintenance costs.

Developed by Agco Power, it contains the SCR system, DOC and soot catalyst in one compact unit, all neatly housed under the cab, maintaining the industry-leading forward visibility over the low, slim bonnet.

Longer service intervals now extend oil and fuel filter changes to 600hr, which further helps reduce running costs.

A new, optimised airflow system improves engine cooling, which increases performance and efficiency.

All MF 5S Series tractors are available with a choice of Massey Ferguson’s highly regarded 16×16 speed, Dyna-4 or 24×24 Dyna-6, semi-powershift transmissions. Highly efficient and easy to use, both come with the useful Brake-to-Neutral function.

On Exclusive and Efficient models, the transmissions come with AutoDrive as standard and are controlled via the Multipad joystick. AutoDrive provides automatic changing of the four or six steps in fieldwork, and the ranges too when in transport.

Essential versions with Dyna-4 have T-Lever transmission control with Speedmatching that automatically selects the most appropriate powershift ratio for the speed when gears are changed. Dyna-6 models come with AutoDrive.

Creeper gears are an option on all models, offering speeds down to 70m/hr with 34-inch tyres or 80m/hr on 38-inch tyres.

A new, stronger suspended front axle offers an industry-leading 4m turning radius. Working with the new 3,000kg capacity front linkage that can now lift an extra 500kg, it helps improve efficiency, enabling the tractors to use larger front-mounted equipment.

Three-point linkage lift capacity on the MF 5S has increased to 5,700kg, and even 6,000kg in some circumstances.

Extra comfort is offered by the electronically-controlled hydraulic suspension that uses two longer stroke cylinders and three accumulators to absorb shocks. Redesigned to handle heavier loads, three-point linkage lift capacity is increased to 5,700kg – seven per cent more than its predecessor. In certain circumstances it can lift up to 6,000kg. The linkage is constructed from new components to provide more strength and mounting flexibility. A hydraulic hook top link is now an option.

Developed for mounting with the new suspended axle, the latest front linkage is an integrated design that helps maintain the industry-leading 4m turning radius. With capacity increased from 2,500kg up to 3,000kg, this enables operators to improve efficiency by carrying out two operations at the same time with larger, wider implements.

The linkage comes with an updated Front Pack installation that includes two spool valves as standard, with the option of up to four. In response to customer demand, the linkage is now also available without front couplers or with two, electrically operated front couplers.  All versions are controlled with the same joystick lever in the cab.

MF Connect telemetry is an option on all MF 5S Series, allowing users to monitor their entire machinery fleet, showing the machines’ current positions, routes travelled as well as a range of operating information.

Datatronic 5 offers intuitive operation and is standard on Exclusive models and an option on others. This ISObus compatible touch-screen operator information station monitors all the tractor functions and controls any ISObus compatible implement.

All the elements in the MF Technologies/Smart Farming Suite run through Datatronic 5. These include MF Guide automatic steering, as well as MF Section Control and MF Rate Control, which can now handle up to 36 sections and five products.

Datatronic 5 is pre-installed with MF TaskDoc software 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.

Further easing operations is MF TaskDoc Pro that enables this data to be transferred, via Agrirouter, to the user’s farm management software or Next Machinery Management. Alternatively these functions can also be controlled on an optional Fieldstar 5 touch-screen terminal.

With the introduction of the MF 5S, Massey Ferguson continues its striking new-era design first seen on the advanced, new MF 8S Series, following the same “neo-retro” livery with modern headlights and LED signature. This design pays tribute to the brand’s heritage, incorporating an interpretation of the iconic MF grey sabre stripe on the side and horse head collar motif on the bonnet that dates back to the MF 100 series.
