    Massey Ferguson, a worldwide brand of AGCO, will introduce and display the 8700 Series high-horsepowertractors at the World Ag Expo in Tulare, Calif. Growers looking for a tractor to help them accomplish more each day need look no further than the 8700 Series. Featuring powerful AGCO POWER 8.4-liter diesel engines, hefty hydraulics, industry-leading CVT transmissions and a redesigned cab that raises the bar on comfort, these robust machines deliver unparalleled performance while maximiz-ing operator comfort around the dairy or in the field.

    With five models ranging from 270-370 maximum engine HP with 900 to 1,136 ft-lbs of torque, the 8700 Series allows growers to match the optimal model to their operation.

    Unparalleled Power, Strength and Fuel

    Economy AP84-4 engines power all five models in the 8700 Series. Now with twin turbochargers, these power plants feature Engine Power Management (EPM) technology to actively manage performance.

    The EPM system works in harmony with the electronic fuel injection system and the transmission to optimize performance, de-livering a high torque rise at low RPMs and boosting horsepower for todays demand-ing agricultural applications.

    The new CYCLAIR cooling package improves cooling capability without increasing the size of any cooling system components, so growers get more efficient, effective cooling without compromising forward visibility. The hood and grill have been modified to increase intake airflow, while additional vents on the side let warm air out. A bypass system manages airflow to the intercooler while maintaining valuable airflow to the radiator.

    The AP84-4 engines in each 8700 Series model provide more torque and horse-power, improved fuel efficiency, plus longer service intervals now 500 hours, vs. 400 hours for previous models.

    2014 OPERATOR of the Year

    AGCO names

    Operator of the Year. He was selected from among four final-ists for the prestigious honor at the 2014 Agricultural Retailers Association Annual Conference & Expo held Dec. 2-4 in New Orleans.

    Klein, with Simplot Grower Solutions of Ashton, Idaho, has 17 years of application experience, applying up to 38,000 acres annually. Customers specifically ask for him to perform their applications, and he is recognized for his commitment to do a professional job, even during the longest and hardest days and weeks in the fields.

    Klein praised the Operator of the Year program for showing appreciation to application professionals. The guys with their wheels on the dirt sometimes are the last to get recognized, he said. I was kind of speechless when I was announced as the winner, because these other finalists are just as deserving.

Klein received a new Harley-Davidson motorcycle and all nominees were presented with a certificate of recognition, letting them know their professionalism and dedication are not going unnoticed.

    Operator of the Year winners are the best of the best, the go-to guys whom retailers and their customers rely on to get the job done, said Conor Bergin, tactical marketing manager for AGCO Application Equipment. Brent certainly meets that impressive standard. Hes highly valued for his overall professionalism, commercial application experience and dedication to help his customers maximize their crop production.

    Around his busy schedule, Klein is also active in his community, working with his local 4-H to support the Fremont County, Idaho, Fair. He also assists growers who have their own application equipment by providing advice and troubleshooting tips.

    Now in its ninth year, Operator of the Year is designed to pay tribute to the top custom applicators throughout the U.S. and Canada who spend long hours in the field every season, skillfully applying fertilizer and crop protection products over thousands of farm acres while operating sophisticated application equipment.
