New front linkage for MF 6497 and 6499 series tractors

A new front linkage is now available from OPICO Ltd to fit the new design of the Massey Ferguson 6497 and 6499 series tractors. The linkage is available with lift capacities of 2.5t, 3.6t and 5.5t, with or without front pto.

The f ront pto gearbox is capable of delivering up to 200hp, and features an oil immersed multiple plate clutch using electro hydraulic "Soft Start" engagement to avoid 'snatching' when the pto is engaged.

The integrated design of the linkage gives added strength. An eccentric pin design gives a choice of three link arm positions to suit the job in hand. When not in use the vertical fold system (VFS) allows the link arms to be folded back for added manoeuvrability and safety.

The price of the 2.5t linkage is £2,621, or £5,622 with pto. The 3.6t linkage costs £3,039, or £6,040 with pto. A fitting service is available costing from £250 to £550.
