Massey Ferguson Introduces 6600 Series
The new Massey Ferguson midrange 6600 Series comes in three different models, the MF6614, MF6615, and MF6616, with three grower-focused option packages, and a choice of three transmissions. Standard features such as a spacious cab and four-wheel drive and optional upgrades like a front three-point hitch and advanced hydraulic systems make these tractors work and feel like high-horsepower machines with the efficiency and maneuverability of midrange tractors.
“Whether you’re running a livestock, dairy, or mixed-farming operation, these versatile tractors can be tailored to meet your specific needs,” says David Bercik, Massey Ferguson.
Refined four-cylinder engines
The 6600 Series tractors run on newly refined 4.9-liter, four-cylinder engines from AGCO Power, ranging from 100 to 125 PTO hp. The engines offer advanced technology such as an intercooled turbo-charger, electronic engine management, four valves per cylinder, and high-pressure common-rail fuel injection. These engines also feature AGCO’s advanced e3 clean-air technology with second-generation selective catalytic reduction (SCR) to ensure the 4.9-liter engine meets Tier 4i emission standards without sacrificing performance or fuel economy.
The 6600 Series offers three transmission options. The Dyna-4 continues its legacy of rugged durability, offering four gears and four ranges for a total of 16 forward and 16 reverse speeds. You can shift through all gears and ranges on the roll with the push or pull of a hand lever. The left-hand three-function power control lever allows you to change direction, upshift and downshift, and clutch with just fingertip movement. The Dyna-6 provides additional working speeds, with 24 forward and 24 reverse speeds, each available without using the clutch pedal. The Dyna-VT continuously-variable transmission provides an infinite number of operating speeds as Dynamic Tractor management minimizes rpm and optimizes fuel consumption.
Advanced hydraulic systems
Three hydraulic systems are available based on your needs. The standard system has isolated twin gear pumps operated with levers in the side console. A 15 gallon-per-minute (GPM) auxiliary pump is dedicated to the loader and implements, while an 11-GPM pump is dedicated to the three-point hitch. The Twin Flow system allows you to combine the hydraulic flow of both pumps with the press of a button, pushing 26 GPM to the (maximum of four) mechanical remote valves.
The highest-performing system delivers up to 29 GPM to implements and remote valves driven by a variable-displacement piston pump that delivers oil flow only when needed for quick response, reduced horsepower demand, and higher efficiency.
The cab on the 6600 Series is identical in size to the larger Massey Ferguson 7600 Series tractors, with 62.5 square feet of glass for increased visibility. You have the choice between rigid cab mounts, spring-over shock mounts, or hydraulic cab suspension. All cabs feature a six-post design with an optional Visio cab roof, which allows you to view a fully raised bucket without leaning forward. The base price for the tractors starts at $104,227.
