Massey Ferguson cab
In August AGCO released the new Massey Ferguson 7600 Series high-horsepower row-crop tractors that feature an all-new cab, also found on the Challenger MT500D.
The cab has what Massey Ferguson describes as “a purposeful layout and intuitively placed instrumentation.” All key tractor and implement functions are controlled from a right-hand, seat-mounted control arm with a new multi-pad control and multifunction joystick. Each is designed to be comfortable, ergonomic and easy to reach. Incorporated in the control arm is a video-capable Datatronic CCD display screen, where you can monitor and adjust tractor and implement settings. The display screen meets the ISO standard so that it can communicate with any ISOBUS-compliant implement.
The company says a clean, six-post structure allows for a panoramic view of the field. Rubber mounts and padding are incorporated into the frame to keep noise down to just 71 dBA.
An air-suspended swivel seat comes standard. Operators can upgrade to hydraulic cab suspension called OptiRide Plus. This system sends electronic signals to hydraulic cylinders and automatically adjusts to control bounce, rolling and pitching for a more comfortable ride. Operators also can choose either semi-active or standard reactive damping.
