MF pushes 8S to over 300hp

Massey Ferguson has extended the 8S Series with the 285hp 8S.285 and range-topping 305hp 8S.305. The standard transmission in the new flagship is the Dyna-VT, which is a new option on the other five models.

The maximum power of 305hp is available at 1,850rpm, all the time without engine power management and the maximum torque of 1,280Nm is delivered at engine speeds between 1,000rpm to 1,500rpm.

The new automatic mode in the Dyna-VT allows operators to use the Multipad lever or foot pedal to alter forward speed, while it automatically sets the optimum engine rpm according to speed and load. Claimed benefits include smoother operation and reduced fuel consumption.

The 8S.305, and all 8S Dyna-VT tractors, come with Exclusive specification. This comprises Datatronic 5 and right pillar mounted vDisplay terminal, active cab suspension, automatic air-suspended seat with damping system, multifunction armrest and Multipad controls, four electric spool valves, 16 LED work lights and a larger fuel tank.

The 8S.285 delivers a maximum power of 285hp, with a 20hp boost taking this up to 305hp for specific tasks including transport, PTO work and to meet high hydraulic demands. It is available with Efficient or Exclusive specification packages and like the 8S.205, 8S.225, 8S245 and 8S.265 can also be fitted with three transmission options; Dyna-VT, Dyna E-Power Dual Clutch or Dyna 7.

In the 270hp to 305hp bracket Massey now offers a choice of 7.4-litre engine power in the 3.05m wheelbase 8S, or an 8.4-litre engine in a 3.10m wheelbase on the 8700S – all with the option of the Dyna-VT transmission.
