Massey Ferguson just announced a plan to promote its new MF 1600 Series lineup by giving away a brand new Model 1635 compact tractor to a lucky sweepstakes entrant. This program, which the company calls the “cloud 10” sweepstakes is easy to enter by mail or online. The giveaway was launched yesterday and will run through June 30, 2009.
“We are excited to offer our customers the chance to win one of the new Massey Ferguson 1600 Series compact tractors,” says Steve Barcuch, Massey Ferguson product marketing manager. “This new series of compact tractors was designed to raise the bar across the entire product class. The tractor is the ultimate combination of function and fun – a tractor that enhances the joy in the work.”
Power under the hood of the MF1635 is delivered by an efficient Iseki 3-cylinder liquid-cooled diesel engine with clean-air technology that meets Tier IV interim emission standards. Two easy-as-driving-your-car transmission choices include the 12 x 12 PowerShuttle and a three-range hydrostatic transmission to match the customer’s needs for economy, durability, power and agility. Heavy-duty cast-iron housings and oil-encased bevel gears mean smoother operation and longer life.
Making the tractor the most comfortable in its class are a noticeably larger operator’s area; form-hugging, standard deluxe spring-suspension seat; standard large armrests; and a platform which rests on rubber isolation mounts to minimize vibration at the operator’s level.
Redesigned, right-hand fender-mounted implement controls reduce operator back and arm fatigue by having the controls right where operators need them. Owners will enjoy the uncluttered layout, color-coded controls and easy-to-read gauges. And the wide-open platform makes getting on and off the tractor a breeze.
The ‘Cloud 10’ sweepstakes is open to legal residents of the 48 contiguous United States and Canada (excluding Quebec) who are 18 years of age or older. Canada residents must be over age of majority and skills test applies. For official contest rules, visit www.masseyferguson.com/cloudten.
