I’ve put nearly 3000hrs on mine, good tractor but with some niggles.
im thinking of changing brands next after 30yrs MF, other makes are better and more comfortable now. The new 7s isn’t much different and I fear massey may lose me. I want abit more power and comfort but still in the same size chassis.
deere and CNH offer you that. The 7719s is starting to fall behind.

What has the warranty and back up been like? The problem we felt with CNH was you would have to go up to a long wheel base model to get decent brakes, then you end up with a heavier tractor. John Deere we felt we are going to have to pay a lot more for similar spec.

John deeres are huge and heavy and price of fendt. Fendt and CNN both much more nimble than jd or mf at that hp

AutoCommand short wheelbase have good brakes, on all 4 wheels as well. Massey only brake the back wheels.

Warranty and backup good, but it’s had a lot of electrical niggles and brake valves play up, the Deere 6215r and NH T270 I’ve demoed are actually shorter in wheelbase than my 7719s, price wise they’re more obviously but more of a tractor, I tried an 8s but that just huge compared.
No doubt a Deere 6195 or NH T245 might be a better bet.
I just feel the Massey needs to be more refined for that kind of tractor, they should’ve made a cab that fitted all the replacements for the 67/77 range.

Have the option of D6 in them in Europe.
No they dont !! & look at new 7S-190 its Dyna-vt only !! coz its just a 7719S with a grey metal cab & the 8S armrest & some of the controls
The Masseys made in France are the same tractors available right across Europe & Middle East.
You cant get the larger chassis D6 tractor any more there all Finished & 8S is D7/D7E or VT now.

7719S overall apart from some software hicups yeah Massey seems too be famous for this has been a canny tractor so far.
On the road it will pretty much match the 7499 pulling wise but in the field its less so slightly as its only 190hp unless you have a load on its PTO then its 220hp
That Dyna-vt is far better than the D6 but its what folks like i guess.
I cant get away with DTM or Pedal mode for any jobs but thats no different to how i operate the 7499 both tractors always in Joystick mode.
Its not a Fendt & will never be one.
But its got there Trans in it & a good engine so i can live with that.
Data5 screen isnt in the right place no matter how much you try & move it.
overall it isnt what it could have been in just how things are displayed on it thats all.
Its very swift in operation but just overly complicated for some things.
I fitted Trimble Guidance to mine as there factory setup never filled me with much confidence.
Massey struggled to shift many id say as its so near the fendt equ.

Thanks for that, know it’ll never be a Fendt, but we’ve got some of them already. There’s just such a difference in price we thought this might be an option. Have a few friends with Massey’s already and they really rate them. As we all know every tractor breaks down, so it’s trying to get the right machine for our job and pretty much hoping for the best.🙄

Overall am happy with mine it does everything ive asked of it so far.
Lifts 9.6t if that means anything because the 7718S Dyna-6 only lifts 8.1t
i bet not many looked that up.
You might find a better priced late model if you looking coz i'll bet the 7S-190 is dearer

Where did I mention a 7S? The thread title is ‘MF 7719 experiences’. The 7719 was available with D6 in Europe. MF’s were made in France painted yellow and sold as challenger in North America too. There is such a thing as other markets and territories.
