MF 8s

Wont the Valtra Q just be an extension of the T series into S series territory, in the same way that the JD 7R overlaps the 6R and 8R series. The Valtra T is the direct competition hp wise with the MF 8S currently and a darn sight more appealing to look at as well. I suspect that whatever Valtra release will be a common platform with MFs forthcoming larger 8S versions.

Only the N5-T5 models with cabin redesign will be launched at the Valtra event on April 16, for the Q series will have to wait until the end of the year, as production will begin in Finland in summer 2022

It’s not long since they released the n/t4s I hope they’ve imporoved the c-d range changes

That's too bad. If they're starting production in summer, they can't hold it out that long? The factory area isn't that big that they'll be able to keep them all there, so we'll probably see some spy shots. Great thing that it's made in Finland and isn't just a MF made in France with different bonnet. (y)

Slightly off topic but how are people getting on with their 87 series’? I’m hearing a lot of good and waiting on a demo, value for money for a 400hp tractor and waranty is really appealing.
 
The local "Mega" Maize company is taking delivery of 10 of the Massey 8700 series!!! Its took ten years and many upgrades and facelifts for these big MFs to start selling in decent numbers in these parts. Must say they are way nicer looking than the "Tacky" looking 8S. They will make a refreshing change locally to the usual sea of green in the above 300hp power bracket.
No photo description available.
Would they be similar to jd 8000 series?
In terms of horse power?

Our 8737 has been a great tractor only niggles have been a warranty update 3rd accumulator fitted for the brakes and it needs a power steering update under warranty. Plenty of power, great cab and layout it runs cooler than our 7626 and a lot more comfortable to drive and its quiet nimble and turns sharp for a big tractor ours is tier 2 no emissions crap l recently put it on a dyno at the dealers and it was pushing 360 hp on the shaft stock standard, brochure says 320 hp

One of the reasons is because the production capacity of the factory is saturated, with the construction of the new paint shop, exclusively for the new Q series and very possibly the future S series, the problem will be solved.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
