Massey Ferguson 8700 Series High Horsepower Tractors

02/07/2014 @ 2:56pm

“The 8700 Series tractors deliver all the power and capability our customers demand with advanced features that boost fuel economy and enhance operator comfort for longer, more productive days in the field,” says Conor Bergin, Massey Ferguson.

With five models ranging from 270 to 370 maximum engine hp. with 900 to 1,136 foot-pounds of torque, the 8700 series allows you to match the right model to your operation

Improved power, strength, and fuel economy
AP84-4 engines power all five models in the 8700 series. Now with twin turbochargers, these power plants feature Engine Power Management (EPM) technology to actively manage performance. The EPM system works in harmony with the electronic fuel injection system and the transmission to optimize performance, delivering a high torque rise at low RPMs, and boosting horsepower for demanding applications.

The new Cyclair cooling package improves cooling capability without increasing the size of any cooling system components, so you get more efficient, effective cooling without compromising forward visibility. The hood and grill have been modified to increase intake airflow, while additional vents on the side let warm air out. A bypass system manages airflow to the intercooler while maintaining valuable airflow to the radiator.

The AP84-4 engines in each tractor provide more torque and horsepower, improved fuel efficiency, plus longer service intervals – now 500 hours versus 400 hours for previous models.

Hefty hydraulic capability
Hydraulic capability on the new series has been increased to 54 gallons per minute. The updated hydraulic system provides more consistent, stable flow. A 21-spline front PTO is also available from the factory, providing 1,000 PRM, counterclockwise rotation.

Smooth and intuitive transmission
The advanced Dyna-VT CVT transmission uses Dynamic Tractor Management (DTM) to synchronize engine and transmission performance. Operators can choose their ground speed, and with just the push of a button, DTM automatically matches the most efficient engine speed, holds the ground speed, and maintains power under the load. This technology allows you to focus on other tasks, while optimizing power, fuel efficiency, and productivity.

Redesigned cab
In addition to comfortable seating, clear sight lines, and OptiRide Plus cab suspension, the cab features an ergonomic interior to maximize productivity.

The bright, easy-to-read setup and information screen simplifies navigation with a 50% larger screen that’s 10 times higher in resolution than the previous screen. Important settings and controls are now conveniently grouped together on one B-pillar. The ergonomic armrest provides fingertip controls of key functions like hydraulics and PTO.

Each 8700 Series model comes equipped with new Auto-Guide 3000 fully integrated into the cab. The precision farming package features a simple Go Mode so you can get in the cab and go to work with minimal startup time. Prices on the five models range from $280,000 to $350,000.
