Re: NEW MF6485
is that the dyna 6
Re: NEW MF6485
Hi TSA, yes this tractor has new dyna6 gearshift. driver
likes it. They also have new 8480s on farm but they have
ugly bonnet design. I really like this new look on 6485:-).
Re: NEW MF6485
i like the bonet of the 8480 mor than that bonet from the
new 6400
Re: NEW MF6485
Hi mf8140, its all down to personal taste of course, but
wait till you get up close to one there real nice. The
drivers dont like 8480 bonnet as its a flimsy 3 piece
arrangement thats poorly finished. Next year it will be
changed as well to this new design only much bigger!:-D
Re: NEW MF6485
I dont know if i like this bonnet, lights look stupid ( too
small ) in a grill that size!! thats 3 things this year MFs
changed that i liked about them ( dynashift, bonnet and the
front suspension ) Any idea if this bonnet is planned to go
on the smaller 6400s? Hopefully not!
Re: NEW MF6485
Hi scottish massey, i think this bonnet or a version of it
will be on all their tractors next year,probably by the
paris show in february;-). As the second picture with hood
up shows it is so much more convenient to get into than
current designs. I thought lights looked small at first but
they are sunken into grill to give a aggressive raptor look,
which works well. The bonnet is physically same size now as
JD 6920 but more modern.
Re: NEW MF6485
immm him.. i hate the way masseys are made in france but i
discovered the perkins engine( the most important part) is
still made in the u.k so its all good..
Re: NEW MF6485
hi ford5000 great pics of the new masseys. the new massey
line up is certainly very impressive. you seem to have a
wealth of info on future updates the the ranges you wouldn't
know when the 6400 series wth perkins will be coming out
with the 50km/h option
Re: NEW MF6485
Hi dee206, IM afraid i dont have any idea about 50 k on
6400. I thought they already had it as an option,or perhaps
its only on 7400. The tractors in pictures all had 40k
gearbox and no cab suspension. keeping price low and Case
MXMs out was objective. MXMs had been a very unreliable
tractor and they did not want them again so the estate had
to miss out on a few nice options(shame)to get masseys on
Re: NEW MF6485
ok I haven't seen this bonet, only on pictures, but maybe
they are nicer if I see them. It was the same with the new
claas tractors, I didn't like them, but now I love the new
ones. hopefully the same happens with mf:-D

sorry for my bad english.
Re: NEW MF6485
Hi MF8140, I like the look of claas 697 bonnet too,i just
think they dont have a very nice colour(lime green):-\ It
looks fine on harvesting kit, just lacks the impact of
massey red:-D
Re: NEW MF6485
Nice photos.
We´ll replace our long serving MF 3125 next year with a 6485
or 7485, but I don´t know what are the most appropiate
tyres. The tractor seems more impressive with the 30 and 42
inch rims, like the 6490 that ford 5000 has posted in the
following thread but with bigger wheels, bigger peripheral
force and bigger transmission stress. Is the hardware the
same for the 6485 and 6490 & 95 that fit 42 inch weels as
