Duluth, Ga. (August 10, 2010) – Massey Ferguson® announces that all 100+ horsepower tractors will now be powered exclusively by AGCO SISU POWER™ diesel engines. AGCO SISU POWER engines have been used in Massey Ferguson tractors for more than 30 years. Over that span, these engines have earned a no-nonsense reputation by providing the power and torque necessary to polish off any job, while also delivering fuel efficiency.
"This transition allows us to provide, across a wider range of machines, the power, torque and fuel efficiency characteristics our customers have come to expect," says Rene Boivin, product marketing manager for Utility, Specialty and Mid Range Tractors. "AGCO SISU POWER engines have proven their exceptional performance and dependability during the last three decades in livestock, hay and row crop operations. These are reliable engines built for a long lifespan."
With this announcement, eight models are being transitioned from Perkins diesel engine to the 6-cylinder 66 CTA AGCO SISU POWER diesel engine, including the MF5465 (100 PTO hp), MF5475 (110 PTO hp), MF6465 (100 PTO hp), MF6475 (110 PTO hp), MF6480 (120 PTO hp), MF7465 (100 PTO hp), MF7475 (110 PTO hp) and MF7480 (120 PTO hp).
In addition to being powerful and efficient, AGCO SISU POWER diesel engines feature some of the most innovative technology available on the market. The 6-cylinder 66 CTA engines are Tier III emissions compliant and come standard with 4-valve cylinder heads, electronic high-pressure common rail fuel injection and an industry-exclusive pivoting cooling package. AGCO SISU POWER diesel engines are manufactured by AGCO. The change to SISU POWER engines allows the company the benefits of using its own highly efficient and reliable engine.
"SISU POWER engines are one of the best engines manufactured today. Our customers consistently rave about the reliability, fuel efficiency and high power and torque output of these engines," explains Dan Lalonde, president and owner of Dan R Equipment, Winchester and Plantagenet, Ont. "As a dealer, the switch means SISU POWER engines and parts are more readily available to us. Having this engine as the standard to power each of the 100 to 120 hp models of Massey Ferguson tractors means we're better able to provide the equipment our customers need in the field to make their job easier. It also allows us to fulfill service requests more quickly."
SISU POWER engines will be subject to availability while their production is phased in and Perkins engines are phased out. For more information about the full line of Massey Ferguson tractors contact your local Massey Ferguson dealer or visit http://www.masseyferguson.com.
