Compact and versatile Alpine tractors

Massey Ferguson says that its new 3700 AL (Alpine) Series tractors combine stability and comfort with a high specification for those working on hilly land.

Sitting between the existing 3700 VSF and 4700 ranges, the three new models: 75hp 3707 AL, 85hp 3708 AL and 95hp 3709 AL, are built on a longer and wide chassis.

Flagged up as true mountaineers that are easily able to negotiate difficult terrain, hills and slopes, don’t worry if you do not have a mountain on your doorstep because the Alpine models are also claimed as ideal for loader work and duties on dairy and livestock farms.

Big tractor features in a light, compact frame, make them ideal general workhorses for a wide range of fieldwork, says MF, from grassland operations to drilling, spraying and spreading.

Customers can choose from a standard wide, flat-floor or a tunnel cab option, which can reduce the overall height down to less than 2.44m, for easy access to work inside and around traditional farm buildings.

Powered by a four-pot 3.4-litre engine (no AdBlue needed), all three ALs are equipped with MF’s 24/12 power shuttle transmission, which comes with a two-speed powershift.

With a rear lift capacity of 3.0t (standard 540/540E pto) and the maximum auxiliary hydraulic oil flow is 95lit/min. Two electro-hydraulic spool valves are standard (option for up to four, including front and mid-mounting points).

A pneumatically-suspended seat is part of the standard specification. Options include air-conditioning, a USB port, DAB/Bluetooth radio and electric mirror de-icing and adjustment.
