The Massey Ferguson tractor offering in the nominal 100 to 130hp livestock sector can look confusing. For starters, the four-cylinder 5600, 5700S and 5700SL models we consider here seem pretty much identical. What is clear, though, is that there’s plenty of choice if you’re seeking a pre-owned MF buy

At first glance, Massey Ferguson muddied the water by having two separate tractor ranges with 5700 on the bonnet. Launched in 2017, the four-cylinder 100hp 5710 Global and 110hp 5711 Global are entry-level tractors with a mechanical six-speed, dual range synchro gearbox plus basic mechanical hydraulics. These tractors target users looking for a ‘simple’ tractor and, as announced at Agritechnica, will be known as the 5700M along with the rest of the Global range.
