Massey Ferguson will introduce its newest line of mid-range tractors — the 6600 Series — on Aug. 27-29 at the 2013 Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Illinois.

The new series comes in three different models — MF6614, MF6615 and MF6616 — with three grower-focused option packages and a choice of three transmissions, according to the company.

Standard features include a spacious cab, four-wheel drive and optional upgrades like front three-point hitch and advanced hydraulic systems.

The tractors are powered by 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.

The engines also feature AGCO’s advanced e3 clean-air technology with second-generation selective catalytic reduction to ensure the 4.9-liter engine meets strict Tier 4-interim emission standards without sacrificing performance or fuel economy. FG
