Massey Ferguson launches MF 3 Series Specialty Tractor for vineyards and orchards

Duluth, GA, US – (Press Release): AGCO Corporation, a global leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of agricultural machinery and precision ag technology, Tuesday, introduced the Massey Ferguson 3 Series Specialty tractor to the North American market.

The newly designed series provides a compact yet powerful solution for challenging applications with a focus on efficiency, comfort and a reduced carbon footprint. The MF 3 Series tractor line will launch at World Ag Expo, February 13-15, 2024, in Tulare, California.

The MF 3 Series offering includes 75, 95 and 115 HP cab models of the Specialty (SP) version for vineyard and orchard applications; 75, 95 and 105 HP models in the narrow and low-profile Ground Effect (GE) version for tunnel and fruit orchard settings; and a single 95 HP model of the Vineyard (VI) version, the narrowest model that is ideal for traditional vineyards, the company said.

Top-notch vineyard tractor

With the Vinyard version, operators experience industry-leading comfort for long hours behind the wheel with a cab a little more than 3 feet wide, built to manoeuvre through tight vineyard rows. Innovative design allows for high power and torque at low engine RPM for maximum efficiency and reduced noise levels.

Farmers can choose between several proven transmission options to customise the MF 3VI.95 and others in the series to fit their unique needs in terms of ease of use, fuel economy and much more.

A compact front end and Massey Ferguson’s innovative low-profile automatic transmission fluid (ATF) components provide best-in-class visibility, while a Cat.4-compliant roof pairs with high-tech, ergonomic features inside the cab for optimum productivity and comfort.

Innovative speciality tractor option

The slightly wider Specialty version offers a straightforward, dependable tractor for operations looking for the best return on investment. The 75 HP models feature a 3.4-liter, 4-cylinder engine, while the 3.6-liter is used with higher horsepower.

Exceptional operator comfort and convenience come in the form of a 4-foot-wide cab that strikes an excellent balance to fit the very specific dimensional demands of the market. Farmers can get more done between refuelling with the 3SP model’s 26-gallon fuel tank and ample power for the task at hand.

Low-profile ground effect

The Ground Effect version includes all open-station platform models in the MF 3 Series. This model offers a combination of narrow and low-profile dimensions that are ideal for the requirements of older wine grapes and raisin vineyards. The MF 3GE models provide optimum efficiency with less noise and less fuel consumption.
