Massey Ferguson presents a new range of MF TH telehandlers
AGCO-RM, one of the Russian agricultural machinery market leaders, has announced launching of a new Massey Ferguson telehandler line-up. Featuring an up-to-date ergonomic operator cab, the machines usher in a new era of comfort and productivity.
The MF TH telehandlers come equipped with the best in its class hydraulic system, improved visibility and a host of fresh options. All the MF TH Tier 3 models – the MF TH 6030, TH 7035, TH 7038, TH 8043 – are powered by advanced four-cylinder engines.
The semi-compact MF TH 6030 and TH 7035 are equipped with the 100 hp Perkins turbocharged engines with a mechanical injection system, the maximum flow rate of the hydraulic pump is 100 litres/minute. The larger standard MF TH 7038, TH 8043 feature the 130 hp turbocharged engine with Common Rail fuel system and a hydraulic pump with the flow rate of 190 litres/minute. All routine engine, hydraulic and transmission service points are easily located for fast and simple maintenance, keeping downtime to a minimum. The horizontally located radiators are properly ventilated, thus ensuring efficient cooling of the power unit.
The lifting capacity of these models varies from 3 to 4.3 tonnes; the lift height, ranging from 5.9 m to 7.5 m, can be set automatically. This function increases the comfort and safety levels, for example, while working indoors or carrying out loading operations, especially when the operator lacks relevant experience. The new function Cushion retract allows to set the minimum height.
The entire range is a winning combination of first-rate engineering with features that fit the precise needs of the individual customer and superior neo-retro design that was initially introduced on the MF 8S tractors. It continues the new family style, featuring a new interpretation of the iconic MF grey colour of the cab:
- special Massey Ferguson fabric upholstery;
- Power Control lever is an exclusive solution by Massey Ferguson;
- new streamlined bonnet and boom.
There is superb visibility thanks to the special curved cab design and a new, lower profile engine bonnet shape maintains a completely unobstructed view. As a result, the operator can skillfully manoeuvre in a confined area in complete safety and comfort. The cab is the most spacious in its class.
MF Power Control
All telehandlers now come with the renowned MF Power Control lever as standard. The unit performs the following functions: shuttle forwards and backwards, shift hydrostatic speed ranges up or down and select neutral.
New settings of intelligent hydraulic system
Hydraulic oil supply to the boom is set via a display or joystick. The value can vary from 0 to 100% in 1% increments. Buttons “+” or “–” are used for the hydraulic flow rate adjustment. Such intuitive controls guarantee ease and versatility – an operator can easily set the hydro system operation to his own preferences: from the maximum performance to the utmost precision.
Four steer modes
The lineup’s manoeuvrability has been further enhanced with the 4th steer mode – semi-crab steering: two front wheels are driven by the steering wheel, while the two rear wheels are blocked in the position set by the operator. The mode allows the machine to move easily indoors, along the feed bunk or the wall.
New 5" and 7" display options are available for the telehandlers. The conveniently positioned displays are easy to read and navigate, offer excellent performance. The display presents all the necessary information at a glance, thus contributing to great operator experience.
