Flexibility is the key
Designed to offer choice for farmers, the new Massey Ferguson Activa S combine range has features for performance and practicality. The operator has been given new higher levels of comfort in this class while offering simple straightforward choices of specification.
Medium to large farmers often have a variety crops to combine and each machine needs to offer the best selection of settings to get the output required with a good clean sample. Surveys show that the operators of these machines need practical solutions to do this and value simplicity and comfort.

Head first feed – start well, finish well – your header is critical to how well your combine performs. With a lifetime of experience, Massey Ferguson offers you a choice of its premium PowerFlow table or high capacity FreeFlow tables. Both have features for productivity like Automatic Reel speed and advanced table height control.
The Power Feed Roller (MCS Version only) at the front of the main crop elevator gives a consistent crop flow from the table into the main crop elevator. It can be reversed simply and effectively from the cab.
Full width auger fingers on the FreeFlow table increase auger throughput, ensuring positive and fast feed into the main crop elevator.
The Schumacher knife is the best performing knife in the business at 1,254 cuts a minute. Self-cleaning and consistently sharp, this keeps the crop moving in tough conditions.
The optional rape auger for the PowerFlow table increases the flow of tall crops into the elevator thereby increasing the output considerably. Two electrical side knives complete the rapeseed kit.
The knife is a massive 1.14 m from the table auger, so vision and performance are optimum. The rugged PowerFlow belts power the crop away from the knife and into the main crop elevator at a consistent speed.
AutoLevel table control is standard with cutting height control.
TerraControl II provides a mix of automatic functions including:
- Standard table-levelling (FreeFlow or PowerFlow)
- Ground-following system (Field pressure)
- Headland management
All controlled from the operator’s multifunction lever.
Threshing and Separation
The threshing drum has added weight in the form of ballast bars to increase the inertia behind the rasp bars as they thresh the heads. This reduces load on the drives, power requirement and fuel consumption.
The concave has differentiated wire spacing, and the rear section of the concave has half as many wires as the front section. This principle provides the optimum balance between high threshing capacity and good grain flow through the concave. The concave, front and rear, can be set from the cab independently in order to optimise the threshing quality.
The Multi Crop Separator provides a massive separation area to remove as much grain as possible before it reaches the walkers.
The MCS (Multicrop Separator) has one unique feature that sets it apart from the rest, the ability to rotate the concave up over the top of the rotary separator when it is not required. The MCS concave is moved electrically, requiring no tools. This makes it possible to optimise machine performance in dry conditions reducing the load on the shaker shoes and considerably improving the straw quality.
A special Rice cylinder / concave version can be ordered with unique peg and tooth design, specifically for separation in tough conditions.
Grain Tank and Residue
The grain tanks have a high capacity of 8,600 litres, while the unloading rate of 105 l/sec is fast for quick unloading. The turret auger can cope with the highest of trailers in the field or on the road. An optional yield monitor and moisture sensor – the Ceres 8000i with integral SD card reader – can be fitted.
The long straw walkers feature four steps with ‘active walls’. The 21 cm high, vertical sections of the walker steps are made up of permeable grids. These are the highest for any conventional combine. The front steps of the straw walkers are reinforced for maize.
The sieve profile is the key to shaker shoe performance. The high performance sieves are specially designed with vertical tags which improve the sample and allow you to open the sieves wider for greater throughput. The practical design also allows one person to remove and clean the sieves easily between crops.
The straw chopper is specifically designed to provide chopping and spreading performance suitable for farmers using reduced tillage operations. The knives are serrated to give a clean chop and reduce the power requirement. The fully adjustable stationary knives and straw chopper hood ensure complete control over the quality and spread of the chopped straw. Electrical deflectors for the straw chopper are available as an option. This allows the straw to be directed away from the uncut crop if required.
Fundamental elements of good cab design include space, comfort and visibility. The new Proline cab offers all of these, ensuring complete operator comfort at all times. Visibility is excellent with a panoramic view for the operator including header, stubble, unloader and the rear with large electrically adjustable mirrors.
The new control interface for the operator falls naturally to hand – the PowerGrip multifunction lever sits on top of the armrest which houses all the switches for the commonly used controls. The armrest can be raised and moved forward to suit the driver using two levers on the right-hand side of the console.
The right-hand armrest is the central operating unit where the key engagement switches sit with the throttle control. Designed with a large soft pad to cushion the arm during a long day allows for maximum comfort. As the propulsion lever does not need to slide it makes operation far less tiring than conventional set-ups.
TechTouch 2 Terminal
Perfectly in view and reach is the TechTouch 2 terminal which provides all the relevant performance information for setting the combine The touch screen controls with clear definition are easy to use and adjust.
The membrane keypad is located directly on the right side of the armrest and is used to operate the principle combine functions. The soft, raised keys lead directly to the individual menus on the TechTouch 2 terminal.
New ParaLevel System
Simple parallel linkage makes for effortless change of angle in the field. Both the MF 7345 S MCS and MF 7347 S MCS are available as a ParaLevel version, this patented system offers leveling with the table on slopes up to 20% (4WD) and 15% (2WD). Combine components are generally designed to work on the level. This system maintains that level longer on slopes and therefore keeps the machine working at maximum efficiency for longer – increasing your output.
We can promise you that your AGCO Power engine has been designed to match the latest emission regulations using SCR technology meaning that actually it has one of the most advanced designs on the market. It’s better for the environment and running costs will be one of the lowest in the business. These are important parameters.
Also it’s important how it performs – we can tell you that fuelling is designed to give a flat torque curve, one that a combine needs to give a constant delivery under load despite the conditions. This coupled with the low friction drives we use will give you incredibly low fuel consumption per tonne and excellent fuel economy. (low regulation fuel versions available)
