We took the new Massey Ferguson 4609 tractor for a spin in the beautiful, windy grasslands of Rockbank Victoria.

The tractor, which is part of Massey Ferguson’s new MF 4600 series tractors carries a range of technologically sound features such as  Agco Power’s most recent electronic engine management system – the SisuTronic EEM4;  a 12X12 power shuttle transmission; an open-centre hydraulic system delivering 65 litres/minute of oil flow to the linkage, implements and optional front-end loader; an electro-hydraulically engaged PTO with wet multi-disc clutch; two PTO speeds: 540/540E and a 13/8 inch 6-spline shaft.

A flat deck foot platform, adjustable steering wheel and suspended seat with folding armrests offer a safe and comfortable working environment on both the cabin and ROPS version on the MF 4600.

According to Tom, first impression of the tractor was solid, with manoeuvrability and visibility raking up top points.
