The 6700 series has five models, from 100kW to 134kW (135hp to 180hp) and each benefits from Engine Power Management (EPM), which boosts power up to 15kW, making the MF 6700 S the most powerful four-cylinder tractor in the world.

Thanks to the advanced, maintenance-free ‘All-in-One' after-treatment system, the engines also comply with the strict European Stage V emission regulations.

The only change on the new series compared to previous tractors‘ emissions control systems is a new soot catalyst. The entire system is externally mounted, retaining visibility over a narrow bonnet.

Straightforward servicing reduces running costs on the Massey Ferguson with 600 hours for the engine and 1800 hours for the transmission. New automatic hydraulic tappet adjustment further cuts costs, with the maintenance-free system not requiring adjustment during service.

All MF 6700 S Stage V models come with a choice of either the Dyna-VT continuously variable transmission (CVT) or the new Dyna-6 Super-Eco. This latest version of the semi-powershift enables the tractors to achieve road speeds of up to 40km/h at just 1,500rpm, resulting in significant fuel savings.

For optimum control, the Dyna-VT enables operators to set any forward speed at any engine rpm to maximise productivity, increase efficiency and improve work quality.
