The company says the new models were built with performance, manoeuvrability and high visibility in mind, and has included a number of features including ‘loader ready’ models which come supplied with a factory-fitted sub-frame.

The three-cylinder MF5600 models are available in three horsepower sizes from 85 to 100 (63kW to 75kW) have 3.3-litre Agco Power engines and Dyna-4 16x16 transmissions and are based on the current 2.4m wheelbase chassis.

They are available with Essential specification cabs, which are equipped with a console on the right-hand side containing the transmission T-handle control as well as all the main levers and frequently used switches and controls.

Standard features include mechanical spool valves, lockable spool valves and Electronic Linkage Control. An optional mechanical joystick is available for tractors with Open Centre hydraulics.

The larger 110- and 120-horsepower () MF5600 models have four-cylinder, 4.4-litre Agco Power engines and a new 2.55m chassis.

These two models are available in Essential cab specification with a Dyna-4 transmission, or in an Efficient specification upgrade with the Dyna-6 24x24 transmission.

Efficient-spec models have mechanical cab suspension as standard, along with AutoDrive, a Control Armrest with T-handle transmission lever, two electronic spool valves controlled with the multifunction loader joystick, and 3rd and 4th lockable mechanical spool valves.

As well as operating the loader, the multifunction loader joystick also has a button to change gear ratios, declutch button and forward/reverse shuttle control as well as 3rd and 4th loader functions.

Both Essential and Efficient models have the option of a new front axle suspension designed and manufactured by Massey Ferguson.

The Agco Power engines are electronically controlled models which "use common rail fuel injection combined with high airflow through four valves per cylinder to efficiently manage the combustion process for optimum power and economy", Massey Ferguson says.

"The clever design means that the four-cylinder engine requires just the addition of a maintenance-free Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) to the 2nd Generation Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system to meet the strict Stage 3b emission regulations," the company adds.

"This provides the enormous benefit of being able to fit a steep nose bonnet for unrivalled visibility on the larger models because, unlike other systems, SCR does not require a large cooling package."

An automatic system cuts the low idle speed of the engines to 720rpm from a working speed of 850rpm when the Power Control lever is put into neutral and the handbrake is applied. This helps save fuel, Massey Ferguson says, because Agcommand telemetry data shows a high proportion of tractors spend up to 12 percent to 30 percent of their working time with their engines idling.

On the hydraulics side, the new MF 5600 Series tractors come with a choice of three systems.

As standard all models are equipped with a twin-pump system that delivers 58 litres per minute (lpm) for the spool valves and linkage, with a separate pump for all internal services.

For those requiring extra flow there is also a new 100 lpm combined flow system which automatically combines the flow from the 58 lpm linkage pump with 42 lpm from an additional high pressure pump.
