During the model life of the MF6499 tractor, from 2003 until the end of 2011, the tractor saw a number of changes. Initially supplied with the 32/32 forward and reverse gear Dynashift transmission, this was upgraded to the Dyna-6 in 2006. Supplied from the outset with the SISU diesel engine with an excellent reputation for good fuel efficiency, the engine was upgraded to Tier 2 and then Tier 3 common rail turbo diesel in line with the introduction of the European wide emmission regulations. The engine changes increased Torque significantly with every update further improving the performance of the 6499 tractor, and power boost grew from 10hp initially to 15hp in the latter models manufactured.
The MF6499 tractors were supplied typically with TR (Transport pack) specification, this included as standard Quadlink front suspension, CCLS closed centre load sensed spools c/w 110 litres/min oil flow, welded wheels, pivoting front fenders and cab comfort pack (air con, air seat, passenger seat and rear wash wipe). Some Massey 6499 tractors benefited from Comfort pack plus, which included climate control, electric adjustable mirrors and super deluxe Grammer air seat (heated, c/w fan).
All Massey Ferguson 6499 tractors were supplied with the excellent Dromone hydraulic extending rear pickup hitch, which is piped directly into the tractor hydraulics, and fitted with a convenient tap to lock off for safety and so the spool couplings could be used on an implement, all accessible to the driver through the rear window without having to leave the cab.Massey Ferguson 6499 Tractor for sale
