Simplifying the Agricultural Picture across Vineyards and Orchards

AGCO Corporation, a global leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of agricultural machinery and precision ag technology, has officially announced the launch of Massey Ferguson® 3 Series Specialty tractor, which is designed to meet the unique agriculture challenges felt across vineyards and orchards. Arriving on the scene with seven models ranging from 75-115 HP, the new tractor will bring to the fore a focus on efficiency, comfort, and reducing carbon footprint. Talking in a specific sense, though, the MF 3 series includes 75, 95, and 115 HP cab models of the Specialty (SP) version for effective applications across both vineyards and orchards. It has 75, 95 and 105 HP models in the narrow and low-profile Ground Effect (GE) version for tunnel and fruit orchard settings. Finally, there is a single 95 HP model of the Vineyard (VI) version for traditional vineyards. In the exclusive vineyard version, operators can expect a little more than 3 feet wide cab. Built especially to maneuver through tight vineyard rows, the stated version unlocks access to high power and torque at low engine RPM for maximum efficiency and reduced noise levels. Customers can also choose between several proven transmission options to customize the MF 3VI.95, as well as others in the series, to fit their individual needs. Joining the same are Massey Ferguson’s innovative low-profile automatic transmission fluid (ATF) components that provide best-in-class visibility,

Next up, there is Specialty version, which features a 3.4-liter, 4-cylinder engine, while cap of 3.6-liter can be easily achieved with higher horsepower. Focused on getting you the most out of your investment, the stated version also offers 3SP model’s 26-gallon fuel tank, along with sizeable power, to ensure more work is being done. Rounding up highlights is the Ground Effect version, capable of packing together open-station platform models in the MF 3 Series. This version delivers at your disposal a combination containing narrow and low-profile dimensions that are ideal for the requirements of older wine-grape and raisin vineyards. Keeping the trend alive, the Ground Effect iteration also lets you mix and match horsepower and specifications to conceive ideal equipment solution in every user’s case without ever asking for any extra money from them.
