Bet on red: Massey Ferguson

​Our great friend Julián Martínez bet on red when he bought the new Massey Ferguson 5712 SL Essential. Of course, the Massey Ferguson's slogan is fantastic and it can brief the good jobs carried out in last years by the manufacturer and especially the subsidiary in Spain: great professionals that want to do a good job with prices really adjusted to the Spanish market. This is a France tractor (it comes from Beauvais factory), and it was delivered by Agrocampo dealer (Albacete) in only a few weeks.

Julián told us that he had some offers of different brands. Finally, he decided to buy the Massey Ferguson 5712 SL Essential which we consider a right decision because:
  1. It is in an ideal power segment for a small Spanish farmer.
  2. It is a very versatile tractor that will be used to work with implements (cultivator, plough, seed drill, sprayer, fertilizer ...) front loader and transport with trailer. The Series 5700 SL has been the tractor of the year 2016 in the modality of "Best Utility".
  3. It owns enough technological equipment to avoid becoming obsolete in many years.
  4. The specifications-quality-price ratio has been the best.
Julián has a good opinion about his tractor after 100 working hours. The tractor conveys a sense of extraordinary power. Its engine (AGCO Power) can generate high power from very low engine revolutions (it has a fairly flat torque curve). The Dyna4 gearbox ​is very fine and soft both on the road and working in the field. Another remarkable feature that stands out is the beauty of the tractor. Its ​bonnet​ ​is singularity, since it has a pronounced drop that certainly helps to work with the frontloader. The ​bonnet​ ​is made of polycyclopentadiene (a very strong plastic).

The main features that we would highlight of the Massey Ferguson 5712 SL Essential are described below:
  • AGCO Power 4.4 litres and 4 cylinders. Electronic injection/Common rail.
