- Massey Ferguson has announced the introduction of the latest MF TH telehandler Series, which features a completely new cab plus other significant changes that further enhance comfort, operation and productivity
Massey Ferguson says the six models in the latest generation MF TH Series are designed to handle every job with ease. The line-up starts with the semi-compact MF TH 6030 and goes up to the latest MF TH.8043, which provides a maximum lift capacity of 4,300kg and height of 7.5m and can be equipped with a 3,500-litre capacity bucket.
Significant improvements to the hydrostatic transmission, which include a new operating mode, ensure the MF TH Series operate more smoothly to ease operation and increase productivity. Powerful and high flow hydraulics, equipped with proportional control, deliver optimum materials handling accuracy and productivity.
“MF TH Telehandlers already have a strong reputation for excellent performance, productivity, visibility and manoeuvrability. These new models now introduce the most exciting developments in 10 years’ of MF TH production. This is not just an upgrade – it is a breakthrough,” says Thierry Lhotte, Vice President & Managing Director Massey Ferguson, Europe & Middle East.
“The MF TH Series is completely transformed. Now equipped with a high comfort cab, this new generation delivers outstanding comfort and control, combined with smoother operation and additional automation” explains Mr Lhotte.
“The new MF TH range not only reflects the new Massey Ferguson design initiated on the MF 8S, but substantial changes to the cab enable operators to benefit from modern, advanced controls in a quiet, comfortable workplace. Our renowned MF Power Control lever, as used on all Massey Ferguson tractors, is now standard, providing excellent operation with the left hand,” adds Francesco Murro, Director Marketing Massey Ferguson EME.
“High performance, combined with great comfort, make the MF TH Series a real operator’s machine,” explains Mr Murro.
All models are powered by advanced four-cylinder, Stage V engines, with power increasing to 135hp on the MF TH 6534, MF TH 7038 and MF TH 8043, while remaining at 100hp for the other models. Lift capacity and height specifications remain unchanged.
A choice of six new MF TH telehandler models enables users to choose the exact size and specification to perfectly suit every handling task in the yard and the field.
Two nimble semi-compact models, measuring just 2.1m wide x 2.1m high, are ideal for working in confined spaces and traditional farm buildings. These two machines and the larger, MF TH 7035 are powered by a 100hp engine and with a 100 litre/min hydraulic flow provide a 3t lift capacity, with the MF TH 6030 taking loads to 6m and up to 7m on the MF TH 7030. The larger, MF TH.7035 has a 3.5t lift capacity up to 7m.
Three, larger standard MF TH telehandlers, are all powered by the latest technology Stage V engines, which produce 135hp in this new generation. All are equipped with 190 litre/min load-sensing hydraulics and, depending on model, offer lift heights from 6.5m up to 7.5m and lift capacities of 3.4t up to 4.3t on the MF TH.8043, which can also be equipped with a 3,500 litre capacity bucket.
