 With 70 and 75 PTO hp, respectively, the MF5609 and MF5610 are outfitted with AGCO Power engines, hydraulic capacity and a visibly updated cab all designed for loader work, hay production and general farm chores.

The tractors are powered by AGCO Power three-cylinder engines with electronic engine controls that meet Tier 4 Interim emissions standards. These engines powering the 5600 Series tractors have four valves per cylinder, for improved airflow through the engine to enhance fuel/air mixing, meaning lower annual service costs. Wet replaceable cylinder liners with mid-supports also keep service costs down by ensuring correct engine cooling. In addition, the engines are equipped with a SisuTronic EEM4 electronic engine management system that monitors and manages every aspect of engine operation, including fuel flow and injection timing to keep the engine running as efficiently as possible. A Bosch fuel pump and single-pressure vessel deliver fuel to each cylinder for exceptional fuel/air mixing and more complete combustion, keeping engines running smoother, longer.

The 5600 Series use the Dyna-4 transmission with 16 forward and 16 reverse, however new on the 5600 series is a standard 16x16 gearbox with speed matching and the traditional "T"-handle gear shift. An AUTO-DRIVE function is also available as an upgrade option. New to the Dyna-4 transmission is AUTO-N, allowing the gearbox to go into neutral when the operator engages both brake pedals. This feature makes loader work faster and more convenient by eliminating the use of a hand lever or clutch pedal.

An open-center hydraulic system features a standard flow rate of 11 gallons per minute (gpm) to the rear three-point linkage and 15 gpm to remote valves. An optional Twin Flow system combines the flow from both pumps, providing 26 gpm to remote hydraulic circuits.

The MF5609 and MF5610 have identical-sized cabs to the Massey Ferguson 7600 Series and use a six-post design. The front dash of the cab is modeled after that of the 8600 Series, offering a narrow cross-section to improve forward visibility. The 5600 Series also comes with an optional Visio Roof, for additional visibility during loader work.
