Higher performance with lower fuel consumptionThe engine tuning of the M7002 series has been optimized in comparison to its predecessor. The maximum power is now available at a lower level of 1,900 rpm. This results in improved performance, particularly during PTO work. Fuel consumption is also significantly lower thanks to the engine update, which makes the M7 172 more efficient and less thirsty. The maximum torque is reached at 1,500 rpm, resulting in improved efficiency.
New 6-speed Powershift transmission for standard and premium modelsThe M7002 series is equipped with a new 6-speed Powershift transmission with 30 forward 15 reverse gears (F54/R27 with creep speed). This leads to an improved shifting performance. There are two Powershift overlaps between each speed, which makes shifting gears easier. With the new Powershift transmission, the M7 172 now also knows to impress with faster and easier gear shifting through more gear speeds than before.
Unmistakable comfort in the workplaceThe entire cover material in the cab is new. Thanks to the new indoor material, the cabin is now better protected against scratches and other damage. The interior will therefore last longer. In addition, all control buttons have been ergonomically designed. In order to increase driver comfort, a new, more comfortable premium-seat is now fitted as standard. The new seat provides a better suspension and upholstery, bigger armrests, and much more. The cabin seal has also been improved, resulting in lower noise levels in the cabin.
Fascinating new functionsThe K-monitors have received an update with new features. The memory for the headland management system HMS has been increased in order to save more variations – you can now save up to 20 different implements in one setup. In addition, you can now store individual driver profiles, so that all important tractor settings are saved. The automatic steering technology has also been improved in the M7 172. You can now use a “nudge” function to correct your A-B line with the push of a button. The distance of the A-B line is now also shown in centimetres, to better detect deviations from the line.
Numerous intelligent improvementsThe work lights are now available with LED, which improves illumination while at the same time reducing power consumption. New buttons at the rear of the tractor simplify your work on the rear implement. New electrically adjustable, heated rear-view mirrors improve visibility and safety. The new design of the exhaust system reduces noise and improves the forward view. All M7 172 tractors are approved for 50 km/h as standard. The new permissible total weight of 11,500 kg increases the number of implements that can be used. Additional tire options reduce ground pressure, and the tractor has even more to offer.
