Massey Ferguson have produced classic tractor models throughout the years. It has always been a favourite in Ireland and suited to our farming enterprises. We have seen some classics go out the gate here in Cork Farm Machinery. Of late Massey Ferguson have launched a new range of tractors known as the “S” range. This range launched in 2021 and early 2022 and have proved to be very popular. The four tractors that launched all have different qualities and are all suited to a certain enterprise. Each tractor has a specific use for a specific sector e.g., MF 8S is mainly used by Agri Contractors thanks to its huge power outage which has the ability to drive larger machines.
