Consisting of six models, Massey Ferguson Planters combine decades of field-proven efficiency with market-leading technology for maximum yield potential. A range of sizes and configurations makes these user-friendly and cost-efficient planters easy to integrate into any operation and provide fast, dependable ROI.
“Massey Ferguson is dedicated to providing farmer-focused solutions for every step of the agricultural journey,” said Darren Parker, vice president for Massey Ferguson North America. “Throughout our product lineup, we look to deliver straightforward, dependable equipment that meets the unique needs of North American farmers. Our series of planters brings together state-of-the-art planting technology and the reliability farmers have come to expect from Massey Ferguson.”
Straightforward and Dependable
The heart of the Massey Ferguson Planter lineup is a heritage design that limits downtime, wear and required maintenance. The Heads Up™ row unit design, built on the legacy of White Planter reliability, provides a solid foundation. Units are cast for enhanced longevity and feature 7-by-7-inch square tubing. Vacuum electric and positive air models are available, providing minimal daily maintenance and season-long uptime performance. Farmers can choose between front-fold, wing-fold, mounted/stack-fold or rigid to meet their specific requirements.
Cutting-Edge Planting Technology
A rock-solid foundation is paired with the right level of technology to help farmers maximize yields. Massey Ferguson Planters are available with the latest Precision Planting® technology for fast, accurate planting. This includes:
- 20|20® monitor for advanced agronomic picture
- DeltaForce® for uniform planting depth across an entire field
- vSet2® for greater than 99% seed singulation accuracy without any adjustments
- vDrive®, a maintenance-free electric drive system, for individual row-by-row section and rate control along with turn compensation
- SpeedTube® for high-speed planting while ensuring accurate spacing
Technology can be incorporated directly from the factory or aftermarket as operations and needs change.
With a perfect paring of dependability and modern technology, Massey Ferguson Planters provide a robust entry-level model for North American farmers looking to maximize yields. Using a modular design system, farmers can build the implement that fits their operation and budget with room to grow for a scalable, long-term solution. With factory installation of desired Precision Planting systems, farmers can reduce upfront costs and minimize delivery timelines. However, farmers looking to keep initial investment low can spec less technology upfront and plug and play as their operation changes.
