MF 3600 updates bring Family style and Functionality

MASSEY-FERGUSON_portaleMassey Ferguson, a worldwide brand of AGCO (NYSE:AGCO), is to update the MF 3600 range in both its Standard and Specialised formats. This will bring the range in line with the current Massey Ferguson styling and also incorporate a number of new features which have been developed in order to meet the needs of the market.
The tractors, from 69-102hp, have proved extremely popular on livestock and mixed farms and, in their specialised format, for vineyards, fruit farms and growers of vegetables, salads and other specialist crops.
Rear linkage lift capacity has been increased to a maximum of 3 tonnes, allowing a wider range of implements to be operated.
The steering angle has been increased as a result of redesigning the front support on the Specialised models. This allows the steering angle to be increased by up to 40.5 degrees on the MF 3600GE version, offering easier turning in polytunnels and tight vineyard and orchard layouts. Tractors in the MF 3600 V/S/F/GE ranges will benefit from revised styling to bring their appearance in line with the rest of the Massey Ferguson range and provide the same attractive look.
Updates include a new roof and grey side panels bringing the sleek family styling to these specialised machines. Appearance and functionality is enhanced with new oval bar lights, work and turning lights.
Models in the MF 3600 Standard Range also get the new roof, plus new oval turning and position lights and new mid-working lights.  Inside the cab, new colours and trim have been incorporated to correspond to other Massey Ferguson models.
A new indicator lever improves the control and comfort of operation as it activates seven functions: warning, turning, flashing, high beam, low beam, position lights and horn. A battery switch becomes mandatory in some markets so is now specified on the whole range. It is located on the left hand side of the engine bonnet on standard models, and on the back of the tractor beside the trailer light plug support on the specialised versions, where it is easily accessible from within the cab and from the outside. Optional equipment includes a radio with LCD screen, MP3 compatibility via an SD card or USB link and the facility to store favourite stations. Memory back-up protects stored settings in the event of the battery being disconnected. Production will begin on the new tractors in September 2015 and the updates will be previewed at SIMA.
Campbell Scott, Director, Sales Engineering and MF Brand Development said: “Updating the MF 3600 gives this very popular tractor the true Massey Ferguson family style plus a number of improvements that will make its operation even more user-friendly and efficient. We expect to see its reputation as a great all-rounder and a specialist workhorse that can be precisely tailored to the high value crop grower’s needs enhanced even further with these developments”.
