The new MF 9000 Xtra Series telescopic handlers from Massey Ferguson are powered by new engines that meet the exacting standards set for the latest Stage 3b/Tier 4 interim emissions regulations.
At the same time a new joystick option allows operators to select neutral and change direction with a simple switch on the control joystick.
The new 3.6 litre, four cylinder Deutz engine employs efficient, straightforward technology including exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) to provide a simple, maintenance-free method to meet the latest exhaust emissions legislation.
This delivers superb performance and economy with simple maintenance, which means the telehandler spends more time working and requiring no extra servicing commitments for the operator.
The new engines remain in their existing laterally, side-mounted position that provides superb access for service and cooling. The new engines develop 100hp in the 6m, 3t MF 9306 Xtra and 7m, 3.5t MF 9407 Xtra and 122hp for the 7m, 3.5m MF 9407 S Xtra.
To accommodate the new engine, its mounting bay and cooling package are altered slightly, but this is still all encased under the low ‘bonnet’ the driver’s right-hand side, retaining great visibility.
