Spray With Confidence
The Massey Ferguson 500R Series Sprayer is user-friendly and easy to operate. It provides the perfect balance of technology with an intuitive tractor-cab layout, allowing independent farmers to take control of their spraying applications with confidence.
A standard LiquidLogic® system puts the MF 500R Series Sprayer ahead of the competition in terms of efficiency and accuracy. The system offers 50-second priming with no wasted chemicals, reducing input costs and allowing for better stewardship of the land. An advanced recirculation system moves product through the tank and every inch of the boom for a constant rate and uniform mixture from start to finish. Control over 36 individual boom sections, six times more than other sprayers on the market, provides maximum precision with minimal waste for better ROI. Additionally, the LiquidLogic system cleans 75% faster and includes boom recovery and boom cleanout (BCO) to take advantage of every minute in the field.
The MF 500R Series Sprayer also features a tractor-style cab, which makes it easy for independent farmers to jump behind the wheel and get the job done. The roomy, ergonomic cab layout carries over from Massey Ferguson’s award-winning S Series tractor lineup for maximum comfort with reduced noise and vibration. Nearly 360-degree visibility makes it easy for operators to keep a close eye on the tires and booms.
The MF 500R Series Sprayer delivers on the company’s promise of straightforward, dependable equipment with a user-friendly reload station, easy access to service points and minimal daily maintenance for more uptime and easier service.
A Reliable Spraying Solution
The MF 500R Series Sprayer capitalizes on decades of experience from across the AGCO family of brands. Powered by a proven, cost-effective 7.4L AGCO Power™ engine, the MF 500R Series Sprayer offers power and torque characteristics that surpass the competition. A flexible, modified carbon steel chassis provides agility and traction in even the most difficult field conditions. A robust, non-welded frame allows all four wheels to stay on the ground, even when suspension runs out. Standard AWD allows for more efficient power-to-ground transfer. This feature maintains pump pressure at lower rpms for better fuel efficiency and more consistent coverage.
Like all Massey Ferguson machines, the MF 500R Series Sprayer offers a wide range of customizations, allowing farmers to design the sprayer that fits their operation and budget.
