Massey Ferguson have just completed their Antarctica2 bid to drive an MF 5610 agricultural tractor on an ambitious 5000km round trip to the South Pole. Arriving safely back at Novo Runway on the Antarctic coast on the 20th December.
The Deutz-Fahr 9340 has won the 2015 ‘Golden Tractor for the Design’ award. The 9 Series has four models from 270 to 340hp with TTV continuously-variable transmission. They are claimed to be the ideal choice for the highest levels of power, provided by Deutz TCD 7.8-litre, twin turbo, six-cylinder engines hooked to ZF TMT 32 continuously-variable transmissions.
A top speed of 60kph can be attained at just 1,780 rpm and 50kph at 1,480 rpm, helping to reduce fuel consumption. The braking system requires only a small input to bring the tractor safely to a halt, with front disc brakes on the 60kph version. An electronic parking brake (EPB) with positive engagement also increases safety.
The hydraulic system employs a 210 l/min load-sensing pump operating at 200 bar, providing 150 l/min to up to seven rear spools and allowing a lift capacity of 12 tonnes.
The Maxi-Vision cab has a single-piece windscreen, ‘soft grip’ steering wheel and allows options that include a 12in touch screen monitor and Agrosky GPS navigation system.
