Introducing the new MF5S

After the launch of its 8S Series tractors, Massey Ferguson has started rolling out its design and controls to other ranges, with the 5700S set to be replaced by the new 5S Series. Alex Heath reports.

Massey Ferguson has launched the 5S tractor series, following in the footsteps of the previously launched 8S Series in the summer of 2020. The new range comprises five models spanning 105 to 145hp. The line-up replicates the current 5700S Series, which it will replace, with a 10hp power increase for the smallest model and a 15hp increase for the rest of the range.

Designed with loader work in mind, the manufacturer adds that the tractor is also capable of carrying out arable work thanks to an increase in power and precision farming packages over the outgoing 5700S Series.

All models use Agco Power’s, 4.4-litre, four-cylinder engines, meeting Stage 5 emissions regulations with the manufacturer’s ‘All-in-One’ emissions after treatment package, with selective catalytic reduction, diesel oxidising catalyst and soot catalyst housed under the cab. Maximum torque is generated at 1,500rpm, with 550Nm developed in the largest model, the 5S.145.

Longer service intervals now extend oil and fuel filter changes to 600 hours, while under the bonnet, the manufacturer says the airflow has been redesigned for improved cooling efficiency, in addition to a reversing fan option.
