The Massey Ferguson 5700 Series tractors feature an all-new synchronised transmission, already proven on the MF 4700 series, which provides a total of twelve forward and twelve reverse speeds courtesy of two ranges. Six gears are within the 4-12km/hr typical fieldwork range, while maximum speed is 40km/hr.
The right speed for each job is easily selected using gear levers that are within easy reach, yet positioned neatly to hand of the driver, ensuring an unimpeded passage when mounting/dismounting. A single-plate, dry-type clutch is easy to operate and simple to service. The optional Power Shuttle provides fingertip forward/reverse shifts without using the clutch as well as a button on the gear lever to also shift gears.
Super Creeper option is also available when the lowest speeds, down to 140m/hr*, are required for the job in hand.
