AGCO and MTD have entered into an exclusive partnership agreement covering the production, supply and after sales support of an extensive range of Massey Ferguson grass and grounds care machinery to be sold in Europe through the Massey Ferguson Dealer network.
The new ranges of equipment will complement Massey Ferguson’s existing lower horsepower and compact machinery ranges which include the MF 1500 series, recently enhanced by the launch of MF’s new advanced change on the move Dyna QPS™ transmission. All of the new products will be built by MTD to Massey Ferguson’s design criteria and specifications. MTD will also provide comprehensive pre- and after-sales product support directly to Massey Ferguson Dealers and their customers.
Under the terms of the agreement, MTD will manufacture and supply a wide range of Massey Ferguson equipment including walk-behind lawn mowers and tillers, petrol and diesel ride-on mowers, garden tractors and related grounds care equipment. The first public viewing of the new products will be at Saltex in the UK on the 5th-7th September 2006.
Initially the new Massey Ferguson grass and grounds care products will be sold through selected MF Dealers in the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland, France and Scandinavia. Other European markets will be added over the coming 12 months.
