After five years of research into the needs and wants of compact tractor owners, and millions of dollars in development, Massey Ferguson® is introducing the 1600 Series compact tractor.  With bold new styling and the most comprehensive offering of power, comfort and operator conveniences on the market, these robust new models bring consumers everything they’ve been waiting for in a Tractor for sale.  Operator-inspired ergonomics, easy access for service, all-steel construction and high-capacity performance top the list.  The MF1600 Series offers six models from 35 to 60 gross engine horsepower, all featuring steel and cast iron construction, 4-wheel drive, a choice of four transmissions, plus rear and mid PTOs.  With sleek new styling and 22 different configurations, all with a factory-installed cab option, the 1600 Series will meet the most discriminating personal taste and has the ability to handle any job.  “The MF1600 Series compact tractor was designed to raise the bar across the entire product class,” says Steve Barcuch, Product Marketing

Manager for compact tractors.  “The MF1600 Series has been five years in the making, with that time dedicated to research and development efforts that incorporate the features and conveniences our small property and contractor customers are asking for.  We’ve focused our engineering and design efforts specifically to address these needs, and the result is something that consumers recognize the moment they sit on the tractor.”  Power under the hood of the MF1600 Series is delivered by an efficient Iseki 3 or 4-cylinder liquid-cooled diesel engine with clean-air technology that meets Tier IV interim emission standards.  Heavy-duty cast-iron housings and oil-encased bevel gears mean smoother operation and longer life.

Making the tractor the most comfortable in its class are a noticeably larger operator’s area; form-hugging, standard deluxe spring-suspension seat; standard large armrests; and a platform which rests on rubber isolation mounts to minimize vibration at the operator’s level.  Redesigned, right-hand fender-mounted implement controls reduce operator back and arm fatigue by having the controls right where operators need them.  That’s consistent with Massey Ferguson’s 160-year tradition of delivering unprecedented innovations.”  Sleek new styling includes four powerful headlights, a contoured hood, generous operator platform, scooped rear fenders and a streamlined profile for the perfect blend of style and function.

Designed to be the easiest to operate among compacts, these tractors also feature left-side turning brake pedals and right side forward/reverse pedals on the hydrostatic models  allowing smooth tight turns.  Independent, push-button PTO also means the rear and mid PTO may be engaged with no clutching or reaching for levers.  Quick access to key service points combined with a gas-lift-assist cylinder to raise the one-piece EZlift hood inevitably leads to more consistent maintenance and longer tractor life.  Compact tractors are much smaller than usual tractors and this makes them perfect for those jobs that require machinery less bulky than normal and larger tractors.  The small size also helps them to be much faster and they are generally considered to be the easiest equipment to use for most jobs.  First, work out how much you are going to spend on a compact tractor.  This budget will also help you to determine whether or not you will buy a new one or a second hand, second hand ones are generally a much cheaper option.  Tractor for sale very often come with various equipment to enable you to do the job with only one vehicle instead of many, so you may have to set a certain amount of your budget to one side for this purpose.
