Massey Ferguson Improves 5400 Series Tractors

The 110 and 115 hp models expand the mid-range line effectively balance weight and power, and a new hood offers improved serviceability, closer to its high horsepower 6400 and 7400 Series cousins.

“We understand how important mid-range tractor dependability is day-in and day-out,” says Tom Weir, marketing manager, Mid-Range and Specialty Tractors, Massey Ferguson. “Our customers have told us they can’t afford a breakdown when livestock need to be fed, yards cleaned or hay baled. The 5400 Series tractors are designed to outlast and outwork the competition with a power train engineered to handle 50% more power than even these powerful Tier III engines produce.”

Tier III engines burn cleaner and smarter for greater fuel efficiency. The 4-cylinder, 4.4 L Perkins engine, 4.4 L and 4.9 L SisuDiesel engines and the 6.6 L Perkins engine share multiple advanced technologies. All four engines feature common rail fuel delivery and Electronic Engine Management. Some models are also equipped with wastegate turbochargers and air to air cooling. These features are designed to reduce emissions and deliver higher fuel efficiencies. Tier III engines will be available immediately on all but the Model 5435 and Model 5445, which will be updated in August 2008.

The 5400 Series offers 16F x 16R Dyna-4 semi-powershift transmission, which moves through the four speeds and four ranges without having to use the clutch.

To smooth out loader work, the MF 5400 Series offers three system options match expected demand: the 15 gpm open center system; the 26 gpm combined flow system, which allows the operator to lock the 3-point hitch in place and deliver all 26 gpm to remotes; or the 29 gpm closed center load sensing (CCLS) system for bigger jobs and heavier lifting.

The Model 5465 and the new Model 5475 offer more versatility with their integrated front axle support casting. Operators can use it for a front-end ballast system or heavy-duty front linkage. A high load capacity, optional front PTO and hydraulic remotes open the door to a wide variety of front mount implements and attachments.

“With multiple hydraulic systems, 4- or 6-cylinder engines, open platform or cab, two-wheel or four-wheel drive and heavy duty front and rear linkage, the 5400 Series gives mid-range tractor buyers a lot to choose from,” Weir says. “We’ve added the features customers told us they want without sacrificing strength and durability.”
