- New MF 9S flagship tractor range shown for the first time to the UK market.

Massey Ferguson will launch its brand-new flagship MF 9S large frame tractor to the UK market when it returns to LAMMA 2024.
After over five years away from the show, Massey Ferguson will showcase its new six-model MF 9S range at LAMMA, which tops out at 425hp. Key features include an updated six-cylinder, 8.4-litre AGCO Power engine, with Engine Power Management (EPM) offering up to 30hp extra for all models, apart from the flagship MF 9S.425, which gets a constant 425hp. The new MF 9S range has the innovative Protec-U design featuring an 18cm gap between the bonnet and the cab to improve operator comfort and allow best-in-class visibility.
William Judge, MF brand manager, UK, EIRE and Middle East, says previewing the new MF flagship tractor at the premiere machinery event in the UK was one of the key reasons for returning. “There has been a high number of requests from both customers and dealers for Massey Ferguson to go back to LAMMA and, with the launch of our new MF 9S range, it was a perfect time to return. There has been a lot of speculation around the new tractor, and we are incredibly excited to bring it to market in 2024 to further cement our position in the high HP sector.”
All models feature a Dyna-VT transmission as standard and are only available in Exclusive spec featuring a Datatronic 5 screen, Multipad joystick and vDisplay A-pillar readout. For the first time, MF will offer a central trye inflation system, which uses twin 650-litre/min compressors to adjust tyre pressures, helping to reduce soil compaction. Other technology options include MF AutoTurn and Auto Headland.
The stand will feature a 30-year celebration of MF’s iconic sloping bonnet design. Originally introduced on the MF 3000 series in 1993, it set new standards for forward visibility for loader and livestock work, with the latest MF 5S range continuing the class leading vision and manoeuvrability offering views to 4m ahead of the tractor and a 4m turning radius.
To mark the occasion, buyers of MF 5S.125 and MF 5S.145 tractors can choose a new 30th Edition spec, which comes as standard with many features including a Visio Roof, FL.4121 self-levelling front loader with Softdrive and third service, and eight LED work lights. Driver comfort extras such as a plastic floor mat, a B-pillar phone holder, and 30th Edition decals are included as standard.
On the stand will also be an MF 6S.165 featuring a special spec package, alongside a full range of green and gold harvest products, including MF DM Series mowers and MF 7370 BETA combine with MF 680 Powerflow header.
Massey Ferguson will be in hall 12 on stand 470.
