Massey Ferguson's new heavyweight utility tractor, the HD Series 2600, is an all-steel model that comes with either 2WD or 4WD and is powered with a range of Tier III diesel engines from 74 to 97 engine horsepower.
The HD2600 Series weighs in at 25% more than comparable competitors and puts 62 to 83 hp to the power take off, depending upon the model. Available with an 8X8 Synchroshuttle or a synchronized 12X4 gear box, the new line fits a wide range of farm and ranch chores, complete with ergonomic controls in either platform, cab or low-profile configurations.
Power comes from a 4-cylinder turbo-charged Tier III Perkins diesel engine.
The driveline of the HD2600 is made up of heavy duty castings, axles, gears and final drive components ending in a planetary gear final drive. The design reduces torque loads on the internal driveline but provides the power and speed reduction at the wheel needed for pushing, shoving, lifting and pulling.
The MF2650 and MF2660 models offer 540 rpm independent PTO, while the MF2670 and MF2680 provide 540/1000 rpm independent PTO's as standard equipment. A redesigned console also allows much easier positioning and draft adjustment for the three-point system and ground-engaging tools.
