The CRS electronically controls the timing and amount of injected fuel providing high-pressure injections in stages, rather than all at once for an optimal combustion rate that results in greater efficiency, better fuel economy and less engine noise. Its combination with the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Muffler and Exhaust Gas Recirculation system (EGR) reduces emissions to meet the latest emission regulations.
M6060/M7060 tractors' CRS engines comply with TierIV EPA emission regulations. M8560/M9960 tractors' CRS engines comply with Interim TierIV EPA emission regulations.
To help reduce operator fatigue and stress, the CRS engines have been specially designed to minimize noise and vibration. This is accomplished through several innovative technologies. Noise is reduced through a ladder frame crankshaft support, giving the engines a stiffer structure and thus lower noise. Also a gear train on the flywheel side reduces the gear chattering noise caused by crankshaft torsion. Vibration is lowered through the application of compact, built-in balancers.
Note: In an mechanically-controlled engine, the engine speed changes according to increases and decreases in the load. For example, in heavy condition (1), or when working in a hilly area, the load increases and engine speed drops while ascending a slope (2), and conversely the load drops when descending (3). These changes in engine speed affect the travel speed and PTO-driven implements. In order to minimize these effects, the operator must make fine adjustments to the travel speed and hand throttle lever.
When the Constant RPM Management switch is turned "On", the engine speed will be kept nearly constant in response to a certain level of work fluctuations. This improves the accuracy of work without the need for troublesome manipulation of the travel speed and hand throttle lever.
There is a limit to the range within which a constant speed can be maintained. If a load exceeding the engine performance is applied, the engine speed will drops. The purpose of Constant RPM Management is not to increase the engine power.
The synchronized four speeds of the main shift and a high/low range supply tractors with 8 Forward and 8 Reverse speeds.
For heavy-duty work such as plowing, hay work and heavy trailer applications, M7060/M8560/M9960 4WD models can be equipped with an F12/R12 transmission. This transmission features six speeds of the main shift and a high/low range giving it a total of 12 Forward and 12 Reverse speeds.
When H6 gear is selected, over drive function limits the maximum engine revolutions at 1960rpm* for better fuel economy.
* 2080rpm for M8560 and M9960.
The M9960 CAB models can be fitted with the F24/R24 transmission for users who demand maximum performance. With six synchromesh speeds in the main shift, Dual Speed which offers instant upshifts and downshifts, and a high/low range, it offers 24 Forward and 24 Reverse speeds.
To decrease operator effort and increase overall tractor longevity, M7060 F12/R12 and all M8560 and M9960 models now come standard with Hydraulic Wet Disc Brakes. These brakes require less pedal effort and retain high performance efficiency even after repeated heavy-duty work.
Wide and rounded fenders protect the operator from mud splashes.
The multi-plate wet disc clutch provides durability and a long operating life.
The bevel-gear front axle provides M60-Series with greater all-around maneuverability. It enables tractors to achieve a tighter turning radius than ever before-an amazing 55 degrees. This makes easy work of jobs in tight spaces. Limited Slip Differential on the front and Differential Lock on the rear are standard features, offering increased stability and traction on challenging ground conditions.
The innovative and stylish design of the M-Series Cab gives the operator more comfortable and spacious environment year around.
All engines provide electronic control of engine RPM. Activating the system keeps engine revolution nearly constant with a push of the switch, preventing a reduction in PTO speed and enabling stable operation. It makes working with PTO-driven implements much more efficient.
Better than ever, our Hydraulic Shuttle makes shifting between forward and reverse smooth and effortless. With the Hydraulic Shuttle, a column-mounted lever, conveniently located next to the steering wheel, does all the work. Boost productivity, especially while using loaders, by eliminating the need to depress the clutch every time you change directions.
The parking lock can be operated with the main shift lever for easier operation. This lock is highly durable and reliable, providing precise parking on any terrain*.
* Level ground is recommended
Switching the 4-wheel drive on and off is easy and quick, and done with one simple switch* or lever*. Best of all, there's no need to stop the tractor even when moving out of a field onto a road, so you can stay productive. The 4WD indicator on the LED readout lets you know you're in 4WD. (Do not engage while carrying heavy loads, or when rear wheel is spinning.)
* Switch (Electro-Hydraulic on the go) for M7060 F12/R12 and M9960 HDC24 models.
The Cab has been redesigned for better ergonomics. All levers (except the 4WD lever) and electrical switches are located on the right side for easy access and continuous operations.
The curved upper windshield increases upward visibility, making it especially handy when raising the Front Loader.
We've rounded the Cab glass of our M-Series tractors to provide the operator with more visibility and a more spacious feel-ideal for long days inside the Cab. Furthermore, we've increased the glass coverage area on the Cab door, which makes it easier to get in and out of the Cab.
To increase operator visibility on rainy days, the M-Series has a pantograph style front wiper. The unique design of this wiper gives it a wider coverage area.
Specifically designed to absorb shock and reduce operator fatigue. Standard reclining function and arm rests further enhance comfort, and ROPS models feature a handy holder in the seat-back to store manuals. For greater shock-absorbing performance, Cab models can be optionally equipped with the air-ride seat suspension.
The arched beam in the front of the Cab and relocated A/C components allow an extended roof height. This feature not only increases headroom, it also increases overall visibility, especially while using the loader.
The steering wheel of the Cab gets out of the way when the operator is dismounting the tractor. Just step on a pedal and raise the steering wheel to its original position.
The heating and cooling unit is now located under the seat. The overall air circulation in the Cab has been optimized by the Cab's rounded glass as well as by placing the air outlets in the dash tower to keep you cooler on hot summer days and warmer on cold winter days, for year around comfort.
Air is circulated throughout the windshield to prevent icing, frosting and fogging.
The hydraulics on the M-Series are state-of-the-art. External hydraulic cylinders improve the lifting power and offer easier maintenance. The pump capacity (hitch and remote) is a large 16.2gpm for the M7060 F12/R12 and 17gpm for the M8560/M9960 (15.9gpm for ROPS models). As a result, the front loader cycle times are short, increasing productivity and facilitating operation. One (SCD) hydraulic remote valve is standard, with the option to add up to 2 more, plus an optional flow control valve to control the oil flow volume.
Pulling, lifting, cutting or baling; the hydraulic independent PTO makes your toughest work easier. Self-modulation engagement with an Electric PTO Switch means implements like a rear cutter engage smoothly. The PTO brake engages when the clutch is shut off and securely holds the PTO shaft. The PTO clutch can be hydraulically engaged and disengaged on the go. This means mowing, operating hay equipment or spraying orchards are all made more efficient.
M7060 HD12/HDC 12 (Optional for other models) offer standard 540/540E PTO (Optional for F8/R8 and other M60 series models). For economy PTO operation, change the lever to 540E position. The engine operates at lower RPM to save fuel and reduce operating noise while still turning the PTO shaft at 540RPM. Under the economy PTO operation, 540 PTO RPM is available at 1828 engine RPM on the M6060/M7060, and at 1519 engine RPM on the M8560/M9960.
The Category I / II 3-point hitches provide fast and simple attachment of rear-mounted implements. On the M6060 and M7060 it is 3307lbs (1500kg). On the M8560 and M9960 it is 4630lbs (2100kg), with an option of 7275lbs (3300kg). For M8560/M9960 models with the F12/R12 and F24/R24 transmissions, it is 7275lbs (3300kg).
The telescopic lower link ends, standard on all models, further facilitate implement attachment.facilitate implement attachment.
Floating lift rods are standard on both sides of the M8560 and M9960. Floating lift rods give the M8560/M9960 tractors a smoother ride and enhanced traction while using the 3-point hitch, especially on uneven terrain.
Large diameter cylinders boost lifting power by as much as 50%-
perfect for large implements and larger farm uses. They are optional on M8560 and M9960 models (standard on HD12/HDC12 12-speed models and HDC24 24-speed model).
