Agritechnica: Cab suspended comfort for MF 5400

Agritechnica: Cab suspended comfort for MF 5400

Cab suspension is steadily filtering down through the Massey Ferguson tractor range. Latest product to receive the option is the firm's 83-145hp 5400 family; it is already available on the 6400, 7400 and 8600 tractors.
MF's Campbell Scott says the 5400's cab suspension differs from the air bag design fitted to the firm's higher hp models in that it uses twin shock absorbers rather than air. In simple terms, the 5400 set-up comprises twin shocks and a torsion bar under the rear of the cab – the bar reduces roll and pitch – with isometric links on either side.
The shock absorber system will be priced lower than the air bag approach. As a result, Mr Scott reckons there will be significant customer take-up of the 5400 cab suspension option, which will be offered on all 5400 models from March 2010. Front suspension is still only available on the largest 5400 tractors, the 5475 and 5480.
