Let Mother Nature dump as much snow as she wants this winter. Massey Ferguson® utility tractor owners will be ready with the introduction of two new, high-capacity, commercial-duty 3-point-mounted Massey Ferguson snow blowers.

These new snow blowers are designed to be perfect matches for the horsepower and weight of the growing line of Massey Ferguson utility tractors. The MF1680 offers a working width of 80.5 inches and is a great fit with either the 4700 Series or 4600M Series tractors. Meanwhile, the new MF1692 snow blower, which offers a 92.5-inch cutting width, also works well with these two tractor series, and can be paired with the new 100- to 130-HP 5700 and 6700 Series tractors. Of course, for the ultimate snow removal package, the MF1692 can be mounted to the rear 3-point hitch on the premium 100- to 130-HP 5700SL Series.

“We’re excited to finally offer a commercial-grade snow blower for our Massey Ferguson utility and midrange tractors,” says Rex Edmunds, North American strategic marketing manager for low-horsepower tractors. “Whether the operator is clearing a road, driveway or the whole farmyard, these machines are built to move large amounts of snow in a short time.”

Both models feature a large-diameter auger—20 inches on the MF1680 and 23 inches on the MF1692—constructed of high-carbon steel for extra durability, along with a four-blade impeller for maximum efficiency. The three-part snow chute on both models also features hydraulically actuated rotation and chute deflector position for convenient control from the tractor seat. “Customers can count on a long service life too,” Edmunds adds. “In addition to rugged construction, the skid shoes are both adjustable and replaceable, while the cutting edge can be reversed and eventually replaced.”
