The Massey Ferguson 4700 Series utility tractor is a global series tractor. It has been designed and engineered starting from a blank sheet and built from the ground up by AGCO. The module design is what makes it a global tractor. Built in different factories around the world, the machines are assembled to regional requirements. Most of the parts have been manufactured in house, ensuring both quality and supply. This series represents an enormous commitment from AGCO. The Massey Ferguson 4700 Series has been in development for six years. With its production, AGCO is taking advantage of many brand-new production processes. The Massey Ferguson 4700 is built to survive global extremes.
This tractor introduces a new range of 80-100 horsepower machines. This is a unique addition to the utility market segment. It is capable of handling heavy implements and draft work. It has been a long wait for a tractor of this size to be up to heavy tasks with this kind of performance. The 4700 Series has been labelled a heavy-duty utility tractor. This classification reflects the trend of using larger and larger horsepower seen in agriculture. Now a 100 horsepower machine is considered ‘small’ or utility. The design allows for performance in settings where weight, stability and versatility are critical.
Massey Ferguson 4700 is powered by a 3.3 liter, 3-cylinder, AGCO Power, Tier 4 final engine. This engine is designed for North American applications. To meet the emissions standards, these tractors take diesel exhaust fluid (DEF). This is called selective catalytic reduction (SCR). The diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) is injected into the exhaust to reduce harmful NOx. The DEF missions solution eliminates the need for a diesel particulate filter (DPF). Not needing to regenerate the DPF filter saves time and wear on the engine.
There are two levels of options on these tractors. The Classic version offers an 8 x 8 (4708 & 4709) or 12 x 12 (4710) Synchro-shuttle transmission. The Deluxe Edition features a 12 x 12 Power-shuttle transmission. Power-shuttle, comfort control, and fender mounted 3-point hitch control are among the Deluxe features. This is a ROPS or cab tractor, likely used with a loader.
Although built for dirty jobs, the operator can still ride in comfort. The controls are simple, and the machine is not trying to be anything too fancy. It comes as an open station tractor ready for loader work. There are 2WD or 4WD variants. Wheel width is adjustable to suit different applications.
