    Trusty MF 135

    Amongst all our "Reds', we have a Massey Fergusson 135. I bought her for the asparagus blocks a few years ago now, (no Farmalls for sale at the time) since then I've been real impressed with the reliability and ease of handling.
    It handles the Inter.B46 baler, a hungry little baler, with no trouble at all, it's great to hear the governor kicking in. Fergie gets housed and looked after.
    Some photos of my wife & a mate baling.

    Most all the MFs with the 3 cyl. Perkins engines are very reliable and fuel sippers. My dad had a 35 diesel without power steering, and it would wear one out in a hurry. He only kept if for a couple of tobacco crops and moved up to power steering.

    The 135 was a really good tractor. My grandpa on my moms side had one for years that did a lot of work with very few problems. Pretty much bullet proof.
