Massey Ferguson - Model MDI 4 - Tractor
At LAFORGE we know that farming conditions change rapidly and that our customers need versatile and adaptable equipment solutions to meet these challenges. LAFORGE has been providing market leading front hitch solutions for 30 years in Europe, and for the last 20 also in North America, on tractor brands that are currently under the AGCO umbrella. More than twenty years ago we were already an approved supplier for MASSEY FERGUSON, but we also over the years have offered systems for DEUTZ-ALLIS, FENDT, and VALTRA. This experience assures that a LAFORGE hitch on any of the current AGCO manufactured tractors will be the most versatile and integrated system on the market. It will not interfere with service, function or operation of your tractor.
MDI 4 is recent result of our efforts to enhance the performance of your AGCO built tractor. With four (4) metric ton lift capacity (8 800 LBS) it is more than adequate for most customers that are looking for a standard front hitch for applications like cultivators, sprayers, mowers, snow blowers, packers, etc.
MDI 4 is designed with a welded frame with bolt-on side reinforcements back to the clutch housing for maximum rigidity and durability. The hitch becomes an integrated part of the tractor and the maneuverability is fully retained.
A unique locking pin allows for independent vertical flotation of the lower links, thus providing ground contour following for the implement. The hinge is perpendicular to the direction of travel to prevent self-locking when pushing. The pin can also be used to lock the hitch solid for use with tanks or a spray boom for example, or it can be used for folding the lower links vertically when not in use.
(Please contact Laforge, or your tractor dealer, to check on loader compatibility.)
MDI 4 is compatible with both a standard 4WD and a suspended front axle. MDI 4 maintains the tractor’s ground clearance. MDI 4 is compact with minimal overhang from the front face. This hitch is compatible with the Big Pack weights by EASYMASS® and others that are so popular in Europe.
