In the mid-nineties, Massey Ferguson was taken over by the AGCO company from the US. The other renowned names operating under the wings of agri-mama AGCO are Fendt, Valtra and Challenger. Logically, some major powertrain components are shared among multiple divisions.
This Massey Ferguson is a fine and still shiny specimen of a modern, AWD farm tractor in the 200 hp class. The 7720 is the most powerful version of the 7700-series powered by the 6.6 liter AGCO Power inline-six. The 7722, 7724 and 7726 have the bigger 7.4 liter engine under the hood.
Dyna-VT refers to the CVT transmission, sourced from family member Fendt. In the German tractors it is known as the Fendt Vario transmission. The tractor’s on-road top speed is 50 km/h (31 mph).
It speaks for itself that this tractor is equipped with the three-point linkage Ferguson System.
The MF’s power unit, an AGCO Power HD 66 engine. Common rail injection, turbocharged, intercooled and meeting the latest emission standards. Engine manufacturer AGCO Power, formerly known as Sisu Diesel, is based in Finland.
These days, the dominant players in the Euro-field of farm tractor diesels are John Deere, FPT (Fiat Powertrain Technologies), AGCO Power and Deutz.
FPT engines are standard equipment in New Holland, Case IH and Steyr tractors, but they are also used by other tractor makers like Claas and Landini.
