0511pc_massey_1Massey Ferguson® introduces the MF1526 compact tractor, the latest addition to the ever-popular Massey Ferguson 1500 Series compact tractor line.

The MF1526 delivers the type of
performance and versatility needed
for chores around the small farm to
work on the golf course and anything
in between.

With 25 horsepower, a three-range hydrostatic transmission and improved ergonomics for more operator comfort and convenience, it’s a tractor “just right” for almost any job.

“The MF1526 is an all-around machine that offers power and torque to handle loader and grading or tilling projects with ease, and at the same time, convenient size and agility make it a great tractor for jobs such as mowing with a belly mower,” explains Neal Generose, product marketing manager, compact and utility tractors.

The MF1526, at 25 horsepower, is powered by a Tier 4 interim-emission-compliant Iseki three-cylinder liquid-cooled diesel engine.

An electro-hydraulic independent rear PTO engages smoothly and allows you to separately manage PTO speed and ground speed for optimum results when mowing or completing other projects.

For added versatility, a mid-mount PTO is a convenient option on this model. Attaching and operating implements such as a tiller, rotary cutter or finish mower is simple work with the category I three-point hitch on this tractor.

A handy three-range hydrostatic transmission with separate forward and reverse right-side foot pedals makes forward and reverse operation second nature and more comfortable for the operator, plus delivers precise control of ground speeds.

The low range ensures optimum torque for more power to the ground when muscle is needed, and the high range keeps you moving swiftly for mowing, raking or just getting from place to place.

Cruise control is another standard feature which makes this tractor easy to operate.  end_mark
