The Challenge

When it comes to enhancing the performance of agricultural machinery, an effective way to unlock the full potential is through ECU tuning. In this blog post, we are focusing on the benefits of tuning the Massey Ferguson 5712S. ECU tuning, or engine control unit tuning, involves modifying the software that controls the engine’s performance. By optimizing the ECU settings, farmers can achieve significant improvements in power, torque, and fuel efficiency. 

The Massey Ferguson 5712S features a 4.4L engine with an Adblue (SCR/DEF) emissions system, controlled by a Bosch ED17CV41 ECU. It belongs to the 5700 S Series and boasts 120 horsepower, the second-highest in the series. All tractors in this series share the same engine, meaning the ECU settings determine the power output. Alt Tune can unlock the power that the factory ECU settings have restricted using Alientech KESS3.

The Solution

One of the key benefits of ECU tuning for the Massey Ferguson 5712S is the increase in horsepower and torque. With our custom tuning, farmers can experience a noticeable boost in power, allowing them to tackle tough tasks with ease. Whether it’s pulling heavy loads or working in challenging terrain, the enhanced performance of the tuned engine can make a big difference in productivity. In addition to increased power, ECU tuning can also improve fuel efficiency. By optimizing the fuel delivery and ignition timing, farmers can achieve better fuel economy without compromising on performance. This means lower fuel costs and reduced environmental impact, making ECU tuning a sustainable choice for farmers looking to maximize their efficiency.

The Adblue (SCR/DEF) system in Massey Ferguson tractors can develop problems, leading to costly repairs and reduced efficiency due to downtime. To address this, we’ve developed an emissions solution that resolves these issues, ensuring your Massey Ferguson 5712S operates more reliably.

Further Benefits Of ECU Tuning The Massey Ferguson 5712S

Increased Power and Torque

With more power and torque, a tuned machine can handle heavier loads and perform tasks more efficiently. It allows the machine to pull or push larger implements, haul heavier loads, and complete tasks faster, resulting in increased productivity.

Years of Development

We have been tuning Massey Ferguson’s 4.4L diesel engines for years, and understand how they work as well as the limitation on factory hardware.


Easy and fast programming

Easy, fast and non-evasive via programming the factory-fitted diagnostic port.
