The MF5450: Ultimate Loader Tractor
The best visibility over the hood of any tractor in its class.
While its slope doesn’t quite match the downhill run at Aspen, the Hi-Visibility™ Hood of the 5450 gives operators exceptional sight lines and eliminates blind spots. In fact, no other mid-range tractor on the market features a hood with the visibility of the MF5450, making it perfect for loader work and allowing the operator more control and accurate results, as well as promoting safe operation through enhanced visibility.
“It’s a unique tractor,” says René Boivin, product marketing manager, utility, specialty and mid-range tractors. “It’s designed for loader work, and it’s specially designed so the operator can see the tip of the loader bucket no matter what the job is.
“The MF5450,” adds Boivin, “offers power and transmission features that make it well suited for dairy or beef operations where loader work is a daily event.” He points out, though, that the tractor has a lot more going for it than its hood design.
For instance, a supercreeper option in the Dyna 4 transmission makes it the perfect machine for slow planting, slow harvesting and other critical jobs that require a “just-right” ground speed. It also comes with a 75-PTO Perkins® 1104D 44TA turbocharged engine that is Tier III emissions compliant. In addition, the left-hand power control lever is mounted to the steering column to permit easy directional changes, plus convenient forward/reverse shuttle-shifting … leaving the right hand free to operate loader controls.
“We’re constantly listening to our customers and building products to meet their needs,” says Boivin. “This tractor is designed specifically to make loader work faster, easier and more efficiently, by every measurement out there.”
