Massey Ferguson were the first tractor manufacturer to break the 200hp barrier with a four-cylinder engine. We put the 200hp four-cylinder 6718 S head to head with its six-cylinder counterpart, the 7718 S.
On the Fusion 3 balers both tractors performed well although the 7718s hung on better when the chamber came close to being full, not dying back as much as the 6718s..
We put both tractors on a dynometer to get acurate power and torque readings.
The longer nose on the 7718s was noticebale when switching between the two tractors, leaving visibility and maneuverability not as good compard to the 6718s.
Part of the Comparison involved pulling two 18ft Herron silage trailers.
