Fuel consumption accounts for a large proportion of the running costs of a tractor, and minimising its use can have a significant effect on a business’s bottom line, as well as helping to meet the industry’s environmental commitments.
How the driver operates a machine can have a significant bearing on its fuel use, and Massey Ferguson engineers have done their utmost to help here.
With 8.4 litres displacement from its six cylinders, plus third generation Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology, Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC), the engine used in the MF 8700 series is not only one of the most Productive powerplants available, but is also among the most fuel efficient on the market.
Engine Power Management (EPM) now provides a 30hp power boost for PTO, hydraulic work and transport (above 20km/hr).

Dyna-VT is designed to ensure maximum productivity, reduce operator strain and optimise fuel efficiency. Power control lever allows hassle-free forward/reverse shuttling and speed change. By using SV1 and SV2 and ‘pre-setting’, the speed will be maintained automatically and memorised at engine shutdown.
‘Supervisor’ activates when the engine load increases and engine speed drops. The transmission will reduce forward speed to maintain power and the tractor will operate at maximum output as load fluctuates. For control and comfort Dynamic Tractor Management (DTM) works with Dyna-VT and automatically controls engine and transmission when activated.
DTM handles engine speed to maintain forward speed and minimise engine revs without losing power.
Dyna-VT and DTM work at maximum efficiency whilst maintaining a smoother drive quality and a reduction in fuel consumption.

The spacious ‘Panorama’ cab features a purposeful layout, with superb instrumentation, intuitive Dyna-VT controls and levers and switches grouped on the armrest to the right of the operator.
Four pillars allow for unrestricted visibility and a wide door and adjustable cab steps provide excellent access.
An extremely comfortable seat and 4-point suspension system ensure the cab is always at an even level.
Optional OptiRide Plus allows control of the level of damping via the in-cab dial.
The Datatonic 4-Control Centre Display (CCD) has a 7-inch colour monitor mounted on the armrest which is fully adjustable for optimum viewing of the tractor’s functions. The instrument panel is clear and concise, displaying main tractor warning functions for total control of your machine.

Efficient package

Efficient is the entry specification package for the MF 8700 series but you will notice that it is anything but basic. Dedicated to delivering increased productivity thanks to key features, the Efficient specification will enable the operator to work really fast, to a higher standard, with more accuracy together with high levels of comfort, ergonomics and reliability. It provides all the key elements with a blend of simplicity and ease of use, with all key functions ergonomically grouped in the Control Command Centre armrest.Standard Efficient features includes:

  • Command Control Armrest with « T » lever
  • Power Control Shuttle lever
  • Automatic Air Suspended Swivel Seat
  • “QuadLink” suspended front axle
  • Standard air conditioning
  • 4 electronic spool valve with joystick and fingertip control

Efficient specification option:

Exclusive Package

You’ll always find the usual necessities within our cabs but we always strive to push operator comfort and control to the next level. That’s why the Exclusive package comes with dramatic new features that will help to improve further your working day.
The Exclusive MF 8700 Package is dedicated to the more intense, large scale operator looking for more advanced features that will ensure cost effective benefits for their business.Standard Exclusive features includes:

  • Command Control Armrest with MultiPad lever
  • Power Control Shuttle
  • “QuadLink” suspended front axle
  • Automatic air conditioning
  • OptiRide Plus semi-active cab suspension
  • Super Deluxe Air Suspended Seat
  • Mirrors with electric de-icing and adjustment
  • Datatronic 4 CCD
  • Radar & slip control
  • Integrated front linkage
  • SpeedSteer
  • Auto-Guide™ 3000 with Go mode
  • AGCOMMAND™ Telemetry system
  • 4 electronic spool valve with joystick and fingertip control

Exclusive specification option:

  • 2 additional rear remote valves
  • Integrated front PTO
  • 2 sets of hydraulic front couplers and free hydraulic return
  • 1000Eco PTO

Optional front PTO is available across the MF 8700 series. The combination of robust front linkage and PTO options strengthens productivity and flexibility.

Nominal PTO speeds are achieved at, or near to, 2000 rev/min (max. engine power). ‘Constant power’ band of up to 600 revs and the ability to select any ground speed at the chosen engine speed, means a perfect match of PTO speed, forward speed and power.

For lighter duty work, ‘540 Eco’ or ‘1000 Eco’ PTO speed is achieved at around 1600 engine revs, improving fuel economy and reducing in-cab noise.
In ‘Auto’ mode, PTO is automatically disengaged when linkage is raised (or when traveling above 25 km/h) and re-engaged when linkage is lowered. Transmission Controller monitors and controls PTO engagement depending on load. QuadLink suspended front axle is fitted as standard, providing excellent ground clearance and good turning angles. SpeedSteer and Auto-Guide satellite navigation are optional.

Massey Ferguson pioneered the use of SCR technology in tractors. In conjunction with a Diesel Oxidation catalyst (DOC), the SCR system doesn’t just benefit the environment through cleaner exhaust emissions. The combination of SCR and DOC, plus the addition of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF/AdBlue), means a more efficient engine, and no need for exhaust gas recirculation.

Together with SCR, these efficient, economical and ecological diesel engines mean an end to damaging emissions and high fuel costs.

The DOC located beneath the bonnet, is maintenance free and positioned so as to not impede access or visibility. Improved monitoring of Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) and exhaust temperatures means better accuracy of AdBlue injection and the AdBlue tank provides good insulation in low temperatures.

Large fuel (630l) and AdBlue (60l) tanks allow you to work for longer without refuelling.

Electronic Linkage Control (ELC) system gives the highest standards of draft control with accurate depth settings and ground contour following. The result is more weight transfer and better traction, less wheel slip, reduced tyre wear and fuel consumption and greater output.

Closed Centre Load-Sensing (CCLS) hydraulic system provides 205 l/min oil flow for linkage and external services.

Shock absorbing Active Transport Control (ATC) is integrated into the ELC system to minimise the ‘pitching’ action, automatically adjusting for different implement weights. ATC operates with QuadLink for exceptional stability when transporting or operating mounted equipment at speed.

Rear linkage lift capacity is an immense 12,000kg. Two front hydraulic couplers provide hydraulic service for implements, with an overall lift capacity of just over 5,000 kg.
