Everything is shown in easy to follow step-by-step detail, so you can freeze-frame, rewind and watch the whole thing over again.

The film is also of interest if you just want to understand how the system works and watch how the repair is done (check out the filming of the DVD).

Just received the long awaited MF 35 hydraulics DVD today – very much worth the wait – congratulations on an excellent production! J O, Inverclyde.

A really excellent DVD I watched it last night and it will be extremely helpful. E C, Co. Cork, Ireland.

First job is to get one of those brackets made so I can remove the top cover on my own. Good troubleshooting section – think I’ve diagnosed my problem and can’t wait to get started on the strip-down of my TO35. Chuck Harrison, USA.

It is fantastic. My son and I now believe that we can take our tractor Hydraulics apart and put it back together again! Dr Lloyd V, Guyana.

MF35 Hydraulics dvd…EXCEPTIONALLY well done! Thank you… Terry

I bought the video you made and it was very helpful.  I could not have repaired my Massey Ferguson TO35 without it.  Thank you.  Aubrey T.

Perfect video.  I have little or no hydraulics knowledge, but with the help of this DVD I managed to remove the pump and lift cylinder and partially strip the pump.   I really didn’t have much hope that a DVD would help me with this repair, but I am 100 percent satisfied with my purchase !!!  Graeme C, UK.
