Massey Ferguson have just completed their Antarctica2 bid to drive an MF 5610 agricultural tractor on an ambitious 5000km round trip to the South Pole. Arriving safely back at Novo Runway on the Antarctic coast on the 20th December.
The Magnum 380 CVX has been crowned the Tractor of the Year 2015 and is the result of over 25 years development. The Magnum first won ‘Tractor of the Year’ in 2004. Despite looking similar, the model now has a new Tier 4 Final FPT engine and CVX infinitely-variable transmission. The current Magnum line-up has five models from 250hp to 380hp, the largest 380 offers an impressive 435hp from the tractor’s power boost feature and maximum torque of 1,850Nm.
All models are powered by an 8.7-litre Cursor 9 engine from FPT Industrial. The engine uses a variable-geometry turbocharger and pioneers Hi-eSCR technology that doesn’t rely on a diesel particulate filter or EGR. The easy-to-use CVX allows automatic selection of four mechanical ranges and the Automatic Power Management (APM) selects the most efficient engine and transmission speed.
The 380 CVX retains the common APM interface with all CVX tractors and the split throttle sets minimum and maximum engine speeds. A dual-drive strategy allows the ground speed to be controlled with the right hand, or foot, and directional control with either hand and the new MultiController joystick benefits from larger buttons with back lighting.
