Massey Ferguson 2600 Series

March 7, 2008  By Massey Ferguson

mf-2600smallMassey Ferguson® has introduced three brand new utility tractors with advanced features typically found on bigger tractors.

The new 2600 Series tractors come with options like 8×8 shuttle transmissions, a choice of live or independent PTO, and a 4WD option for all three models. They also feature the newest in Massey Ferguson tractor styling. All three tractors are powered by naturally aspirated Simpson® diesel engines, known for reliability and fuel efficiency. The engines feature direct fuel injection and are Tier II compliant for emission standards. The new Model 2605 (3-cylinder engine) is rated at 38 engine hp; the Model 2615 (3-cylinder engine) is rated at 49 engine hp; the Model 2625 (4-cylinder engine) is rated at 63 engine hp. All three models can be equipped with front loaders to haul bales or bulk materials, tillage tools to work up crop or garden plots, and heavy-duty mowers to cut down grass and weeds. All three 2600 models are available with an 8 x 2 CenterShift transmission with eight forward speeds, including two transport gears and two “lugging” gears for jobs like rotary tilling. All three 2600 models are available in 2WD or 4WD – 2WD models feature telescoping tread-width adjustment in four-inch increments, while 4WD models allow tread-width settings by positioning the pressed-steel center dish in the outer rim. All 2600 tractors are engineered with three separate hydraulic systems, each with individual hydraulic pump, for hydrostatic steering power, three-point hitch control, and an auxiliary hydraulic system for rear remote hydraulic power. Massey Ferguson’s three-point hitch system is standard on all 2600 Series tractors. The top link draft sensing will increase productivity and reduce slippage by transferring weight from any three-point mounted tillage implement to the tractor.For more information, visit
